I’m logging – for a whole week…
I have my second appointment with the CDE at the new Endo’s office. I have some concerns which I’ll discuss with her next week.
1 – the logging sheet – It has a place where you’re supposed to list your insulin for breakfast, lunch, dinner – just one place… they think I dose the same for every meal??
2 – the BP cuff – Ok, this sounds silly but, when they took my blood pressure at the first appointment, the cuff fell off and the CDE said, “We don’t have many people here w/ arms as skinny as yours.”
3 – the GAD 65 test – They mailed me a test result that said “high.” I called to see how high and was told, “Oh, we should have put a colon there, your result was 65.” I said, “No, I don’t think so, that’s the name of the test.”
I’m willing to work with this woman. She has a daughter (20+) who was dx’d with D as a young child. Once her daughter went to college, she went back to school to become a CDE (she was an RN).
One of my questions will be, just how many Type 1’s do you see at this practice?
I don’t have a lot of options unless I drive to Boston – not one of my favorite things to do but, I’ll do it if I have to.
