Another frustrating day with the med staff… another day without answers.
I knew going into today’s appointment that it wouldn’t be as productive because I was out of town last week, eating Lord knows what. Plus I’ve been sick for the last 4 days, which doesn’t give me much blood sugar street cred. Of course, my endo only downloads the last week and a half of blood sugar readings from my pump.
The reaction I get?
“Wow… your blood sugars are all over the place. Hm. There is no pattern to anything at all. You are just high everywhere. Except for last Saturday. If you could repeat Saturday forever, it’d be all good. Keep working with your CDE to figure it out.”
“Oh – and don’t have kids yet. And stop eating rice.”
At the rate I’m going, I’m not going to have kids period.

I usually get two weeks’ downloaded when I see my endo (I’m not exactly sure how much it stores). Last time, I did my own download into Carelink two weeks prior to my visit, so if the last two weeks data was bad, I’d have the two previous weeks to show him.
Not a particularly helpful endo, though. So sorry…
I’m really happy that I didn’t have a co-pay. Because it wouldn’t have been worth it. (Other than ordering my next A1C and having a small physical exam.)
