Ch-ch-changes in my insulin

As I mentioned last week, I am seeing a new endocrinologist.  This also means a new regimen of insulin, which also means more tweaking until we get it right.  It is becoming frustrating again.  Just a few days after being proud of my latest HbA1C score my glucose levels are running a bit high.

I know this is normal with any change but it still bugs me.  Today I have to send my levels to my doctor so she can see the numbers in black and white.  I hope this gives her a better understanding of what needs to be done.  I am anxious to get back on track because I want my next HbA1C to be at least a percentage point lower.

I am also looking into getting an insulin pump.  I learned a lot about it last week and it seems to make management more convenient plus I will look like I have a giant pager.  I will be the king of the 1990’s.  The pump might be pricey though, I might have to slum it with the Nike version like the shoes used to have.

Regardless, I like my new doctor, get this, I called her on Saturday during business hours and she actually called me back that day.  It blew my mind, I know she will get me on track, I trust in her.  For now, I am taking it day by day and I know the future will be fine as long as I keep it up like I have been.  New first for me, I had broccoli with a burger instead of fries, the former me would be shocked.
