Type 2 Diabetes on the Fritz!


I am very frustrated this morning! Trying to keep track of my blood sugars while being a Type 2 Diabetic is ridiculous! I was diagnosed back in 1998 and it’s been pretty much under control since then, but now that I am retired, it seems to be having some issues.

I spend my days barely eating and trying to move around the house and it does absolutely nothing! I woke up this morning to a 192 blood sugar and I am NOT happy. About 2 weeks ago, I was averaging 150 in the mornings.

Right now, I am taking three 500 mg Metformin a day. My doctor wants me to move up to 4, but I refuse. I asked to see an Endocrinologist and she refused to give me the consult! I have one kidney and my blood sugar is NOT under control! Why can I not see the endocrinologist?!

I have put in a request to get a new doctor. I’m really hoping they have something to offer besides Metformin. I’m doing the best I can on my part, but I need a medication to do its part too!


  1. Did the doctor say why you cannot see an endocrinologist? Last time I checked, you were in charge of your body, not the doctor. This infuriates me. I’m glad you’re getting a new physician.
