RE: [IP] Re: [IPDid My MD Insult Me?



Is Chico a long way from you?  Can you switch Endos?  Or inform this one
that you were on the pump 3-1/2 years before and the numbers were no
Problem.  It may be that he knows nothing about pumps and is not willing
to learn.

Subject: [IP] Re: [IPDid My MD Insult Me?

Today I had an appointment with my Endocrinologist who is a diabetic and

uses a pump here in Chico, CA.
I have been on MDI for most of my 53 years of diabetic life.  I used a
pump 
for 3 1/2 years.
I had another problem in Jan. 2001 and was in a coma like condition for
2 
and 1/2 months.
Zero memory for all that time.

After that I got back to my real Pump endocrinologist the San Francisco
area 
he said "I don't have any other patient using Lantus so let's have you
use 
it and try it out,"  For the last 5 or so years I have been on MDI of
Lantus 
twice each day and Novalog before meals.  My A1c's are in the.7.5 range
+ 
and _ like they have been since I stared recording them in 1993

Today I said to my "expert" ?? " I think that I want to go onto that new

thing of the pump and the recording unit when it is available."
 He said "No that is going to be to complicated to figure all those 
numbers., you should stay on MDI just like you are."

 I agree  syringes are cheaper since I can use them for at least a week 
before I can't drive the into my skin., but did he insult my
inteligence?
