Sue, I use Blue Cross, too.  My mail service is Medco.  I have  never had a 
problem with insulin they shipped.  It always comes in good  shape.  Maxine

Hi  Ron,

I agree, I prefer to do my labs myself.  I have a standing  order from my
primary care doctor for a set of tests including my  A1C.  My endo through a
fit when I presented him with the lab  results.  He stated "too many cooks 
in
the kitchen".  He wants to  do everything in his office.  Which translated 
to
me he is not willing  to work with my primary care doctor.  

While at the lab, I  questioned an A1C result from a finger stick, and was
told that they are  not as accurate as the lab results.  Is that the lab
talking or is it  true? Does anyone know the answer?

Hi---
I shy away from in-house testing.
I then have to go  back, get copies so I can take the results to other 
various Doctors. The  Doctors tell me that very, very often, offices do not 
forward tests to  other Doctors, as it ties up their office staff with all 
the work from  many patients.

If I have the test at the local hospital, the other  Doctors have instant 
access to the results by computer, usually a copy is  already in my patient 
folder when I show up for an  appointment.
Best---
Ron
