Well I finally did it. I got a new doctor. He has a small practice and I think he is the only doctor in the practice. He told me my numbers are good and will come down. He said I need to focus more on the a1c then the numbers itself. He was appalled that my old doctor didnt even consider giving me the metformin extended release to get rid of the diarrhea. So he has me on 2000mg of the extended release metformin 1000 in morning and 1000 at night. He says after trying this if we need to add another medicine to the mix we will. So I started the new medicine tonight. I admit I ate badly because of time restraints. I had a spicy wrap from Wendy's and a value fry and two hours later my sugar was 135. Not bad for what I had. Normally it would have been 160 or 180. Goes to show I know what my body needs. He said I may never get perfect numbers but we can manage the complications. He even explained more about
diabetes to me than my old doctor. He is energetic and not like most doctors I ever met. He listened to me and didn't waive my concerns away but explained why he felt the way he does. I like him so far.
"No one really dies because they have loved. Because they love they stay in the hearts of the people they have touched so in that their memory lives on." Ghost whisperer-i know corny but this touched me deep down and i see so much truth in it.
