Uh Oh Endo.

Uh Oh Endo.

Last Friday I went and had an appointment with my endo. I was nervous and excited to go, since I haven’t been there since January 2010! I know, I know! It’s not good. In January I reached my lowest A1c and I was doing good. Managing my blood sugars seemed to get easier and I was getting the results I wanted. When I starting nursing school in August, I was starting to fall off the diabetic boat. The stress of school and living alone did not get along with my body. So when I got home for Thanksgiving I decided that I should make an appointment so I can get in when I am on winter break. That way I can adjust things and I have time and freedom to do it. That didn’t go as planned. My endo’s next appointment that was available was in March! There were some in February but it would not fit with my school schedule. I live about 2 hours away and I didn’t want to go wasting gas and time so Thursday afternoon or Friday would work best. So here I am going to the Endo over a year later. I also needed more prescriptions since I was running out of lancets, test strips, pen needles, apiedra, lantus, and an emergency kit. That was an expensive trip to the Pharmacy! I am going back to see my endo April 7th. I have to get blood work for everything so I will be fasting. I got ahead of myself and already made an appointment at Quest for an early time on a Saturday! I am also wearing my Dexcom. It really helps when adjusting carb to insulin ratios and my correction factor. It does get annoying but so does being sick with diabetes. I would personally take the annoying part of having something stuck on me then in the ICU.
