I have a quick question(I think). I’ll be switching to a new primary care doctor come January. Since I know that some of them believe if they don’t see it, you don’t have it. I had one like that before. I work hard to keep my A1C in a “Normal” range. So she didn’t see anything and said that I didn’t have it. I got hold of my CDE and had her yank me away and put with another one that had better understanding of diabetes and diabetics. I don’t want to come across that again. I’m already seeing an Endo for something else. So the question is are Endo’s mainly handling diabetics with big issues or do they handle all diabetics. If latter I’m thinking about asking mine if she’ll accept me as a diabetic patient as well as what she’s seeing me for now. All experts and everyone please feel free to chime in. I know it might sound dumb but I don’t know what if any restrictions they place on seeing diabetic patients, if it’s everyone or only those with severe issues. I figure that at least an Endo wouldn’t pull that stunt of if they don’t see it then you don’t have it bit.
