The other thread got me thinking, it seems that some here really get a lot of support from their endo/CDE on a day to day, or at least somewhat regular basis. That's not really been my experience at all, so now I'm mostly curious what's out there! We were told to fax or phone in our numbers when we left the hospital. No real time frame, just do it daily. I got feedback maybe every 3 days that first week! I was SO lost, without some trusted friends online and irl, I would have gone batty. They helped me figure out carb counting, advised me on tweaking things, told me tricks, etc. I honestly did feel like I had been thrown into an ocean with no life preserver! I continued the faxes for another week or two, then we did have a follow up at week 3. They had us meet with a dietician, the NP and I visited for a good long time and she answered my very detailed written questions, that was really helpful. She did tell me we were way ahead of the learning curve, which was nice feedback at that point since we have both worked really hard to get him stable. Our next visit isn't for 3 months. Since that visit...nothing really. I've sent numbers in once or twice when I thought he was going too low, but was told to pretty much hold the course, when I instinctively thought changes were needed (and I made them!). So, my question is, how do most offices handle the day to day adjustments, do you get much support? I really do need more support than I get, frankly, but otoh, it's been somewhat of a forced learning curve! Today I called and asked them please return the call today as my son has strep and I wanted to know if there were certain meds to avoid or go for. No return call. Do you feel like your endo and their CDE are there for you when you need them? How often are you in communication? Do you tend to tweak your numbers or do you rely on them for that? I'd also be interested in the age of your child and how long since diagnosis, though I realize that is in most of your siggies. My son is 15 and was diagnosed early February, so we're still newbies, to put it mildly!
