This is yet another reason why I have resigned from the hospital routine.
My father was diagnosed Type II at age 72.
He too was sent home to "watch what you eat."
He was down to 110 lb.
Ketoses met you before the front door was opened.
I fought for "Instruction," because I am my father's child. There was no
value in what I had to say.
I PAID for a dietitian to visit in the home.
He stated "She is telling me everything YOU have said I should be doing."
At 86 my Dad died with:
- -Blindness in left eye, cataract right eye
- -Renal failure
- -Amputation of right foot and later below the knee
- -Left foot near time of his death also surrendered to gangrene.
Medical records routinely state "Patient noncompliant... "
I reviewed medical records for a diabetic research grant study in a
government hospital. In relatively short time I saw a pattern of care. I
simply could go directly to the laboratory results and determine SEX and RACE
according to the lab tests ordered for diabetic patients. ALL gave their time
and service for our security. However SAME diagnosis did not render the SAME
methods for care in treatment. My assistant and the study physician verified
I was dx'd 1966 at age 17. I was told I would not see age 30. I will be 49
I am still complication free.
As with Caesar and the Christians, thumbs down will be the response from
INSURANCE because there are NO EXCEPTIONS.
I am grateful that vengeance belongs to GOD!
