Bear with me on this. I just need to rant to some people who may understand what I'm going through. I went to the endo today for the first time in some time (I know, I know). She downloaded my pump, took a look at the numbers, and told me that I was doing great and not to change my basals at all. Good job, me! Then, she started to tear me apart. She told me that I am doing a terrible job of taking care of myself because I haven't scheduled blood work in a long time. The problem with this being that my insurance won't do blood work prescribed by a general practioner. I need an endo to prescribe blood work in order to get it done for this purpose. She refused to give me blood work papers when I asked for them, because I hadn't seen her in some time. This is a catch-22. In the end, I ended up scheduling blood work for tomorrow. I'm going to take those results with me when I walk out of that clinic and never look back. I accepted that I would just have to smile, nod, and bite the bullet, and I brought up how I wanted to try the Dexcom CGM. Medtronic's CGM tore up my skin, left some scarring, and was terribly inaccurate for me. She then told me that I should call Medtronic and see if they had a new CGM that they could give me (wait what?) and that they have all kinds of new things now that will stop all of my pain and scarring, etc. I argued that I wanted to try Dexcom if for nothing else but the accuracy issue(s). She said that she would let me have the Dex if I got a representative to come in and give her training and software. I sat there seething for a good twenty minutes. I got chewed out for a bunch of other things, such as using my arms and legs for sites, etc. Thus, I came to a conclusion. I am firing my endo. My question for you all is this: if you were interviewing endos, what questions would you ask? I plan on calling some endos in my area and asking them questions before I make an appointment. I'm taking my money to someone who is willing to work with me and treat me like a human being (i.e. with respect and patience).
