RE: [IPk] monitoring

Hi all

I can comment on this as I faced exactly the same problem as
Dave when a new GP started at my surgery and told me that I
should halve the number of tests from 5 to only 2 or 3 a day
(I was pregnant and on MDI at this point!).  I wrote a letter
to the surgery complaining and phoned Diabetes UK (or the BDA
as they were at that point) and they were fantastic.  They
sent a letter to the surgery and contacted two eminent
specialists who also wrote.  The poor GP didn't know what hit
him!!  He apologised profusely and I now make a point of
going to see him as he never seems to refuse me anything now!

Dave - write that letter and phone Diabetes UK ASAP!
