    Hi Bex,

    I know it sounds awful, but it seems to be the best thing to do under the circumstances. That's at least a month now since Tracy noticed the symptoms, so how long could they have been going on for? The episodes in the past could even be diabetes related, I know we don't know for sure but there is doubt.

    That's good Tracy. Thanks for letting us know.

    Blood sugars can be affected by illness so keep a close eye on her, especially if she comes down with something. I hope she doesn't and she's just been off her food for a few days...

    How is she tonight?

    WHOOOOOO HOOOOO :D
    he has refferd holly to the hospital!!! (urgent) about bloody time :)
    he said he was going to give me the benefit of the doubt.
    he said i should test her twice a week? (that seems a little small to me what do you think?)
    he said that the goverment is saying that is the recomened amount to test?
    (bet it's becuase they cost so blood much?)
    anyway i am glad he is listening to me now about blood time :rolleyes:
    thanks for all your support xxxxx

    FANTASTIC!!!! Thank God!!!

    Yes, back on Type 2 I think by tests twice a week! That would be impossible for a Type 1! Says it all really, he knows nothing!!

    So what's he done about the referral? It should be same day... hopefully when he contacts diabetes specialists they give you an appointment right away.

    I'm so pleased with your news today. If Holly doesn't have diabetes at least she will have been properly checked out. :)

    Take care,

    He has sent off a letter? i am sure when they get it and they see urgent they will get one out to us asap? (i would have thought so anyway? lets hope so)

    yes i thought that twice a week was a little small? i was telling him how worried i was about everything that's been happening and that i have gotten lode's of info from the net and our mum's with kids with D and he said somtimes that can make you feel worse??? :eek: and these kinds of support can offen make this seem alot worse? :eek:
    anyway when i was telling him about stuff i have read up on he was saying that your not telling me anything i didn't already know? well if that's the case he should have refferd her before now :confused:
    when he tested her blood sugar i think he wanted it to be high so it would make the refferal easyer? as he said to me he don't think it's a good idea to clean her hands??????? but it was 7.7 so kinda normal anyway? i suppose at least he was trying to help? xxxxx

    I'm sure he should have phoned the clinic, but I guess with a reading of 7.7 it's below a random test of 11 mmols which may be different.

    I'm sure you shouldn't wait long now once they receive the referral. It will soon be checked properly and someone will be more interested in hearing how things have been with Holly over the last month, and past history. I hope he wrote more details than todays reading of 7.7 on the referral, but, she'll still get seen anyway.

    Did the doctor use his own meter to test Holly?

    I bet you feel like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders today. :)

    I'm glad today was ok. If the appointment comes though and isn't soon phone the secretary, I don't think they'll keep you waiting if you say you've been monitoring Holly a month and quote some of the high readings. If she doesn't move it forward tell her to ask the doctor, if it's ok to wait? I would hope he wouldn't take the chance.

    I'll look for your new thread, thanks,

    This happens quite a lot. Trevor will have really good numbers fore a few days,. and then BAM they are high, for no good reason.

    I am sooooo happy that you finally got him to listen! Good for you! Hopefully you'll hear something soon.

    No offence to anyone, and I may be mixed up on the facts but the doctor sounds a bit stupid. Canadian Diabetes Association are who sets the guidelines for testing here and it is minimum four times per day for type 1, and 1 time per day for type 2.

    I don’t understand how in Britain doctors start medical school directly after high school, especially since high school only goes up to like age 16. How can someone be short-listed to become a doctor when they are 16? Isn’t it kind of hard to say for sure if he or she is suitable for the profession?

    It sounds like this doctor is a) really stupid and ill informed or b) really tight with the government’s money and willing to twist the facts for the sake of saving money, which is equally as bad.
