[IP] MiniMed v. Disatronics and @#%^&( Kaiser
#$%^, #$%^, $%^& !!! Sorry, I just really have to get a few
things off my chest!
After all the posts I have received I have finally decided the next pump I
would get would not be a MM. Kaiser has since told me they will pay for a
new MM since I am having trouble with this one. But they would not buy
anything but a MM.
In the meantime the CDE at Kaiser Permanente told me that the pump supplies
I reordered would not be filled because I have not seen an endocrinologist every
three months. Apparently, they now have a new policy that if you
don't see and endo every three months you can't take part in pumping.
( I like the fact that my endo told me to come back 6-9mos, because I
have had diabetes for 37 years with virtually no problems and since I work in
the medical field I would no if one developed and contact him).
ARRRGH! Like I really have the time to take off every few months to
see someone just so I can get my pump supplies. I really HATE all these
CDE's who think they know everything. Hell, most of them aren't even
diabetic themselves, and the one I did know that was (John Walsh) told me
every day he rode his bike to work at Kaiser in San Diego and stopped on the way
and ate a snickers and drank a reg. coke to and from work. And this guy
gave out advice to diabetics?
