Hello, I don't normally post in this forum but saw your post. How far out of range are your numbers over this period of time & how many times have you had the testing done? Do you have a copy of all of labs? If not I recommend obtaining copies of them. What is your drs explanation for refusing to refer you? If you are having symptoms you can always contact your insurance company & discuss with them about getting a referral. But again, you will need copies of the records when talking to your insurance company. Sorry for so many questions.

Take care.

Oldbuddy, I see that you have posted quite a bit of info in the diabetes forum & LanieG has given you some great ideas. I would take those ideas into great consideration & move towards finding a primary care dr that can offer consistent care & make referrals to the appropriate specialists. Walk in clinics do not offer the consistent care you need.

Take care.
