I am writing this post out of anger and disappointment from the medical community, I know there are good people in the Medical field, but there are a lot of BAD Physicians and Specialist out there. If you are one of those BAD ones I am talking to you.
I have stumbled across a few people who have said their Physician will not help them with their diabetes or can not help them manage their diabetes. They have been told by their Physicians, “Your on insulin and pills! I am not sure why it’s not working.” Come on if you are willing to learn about Diabetes you should be taught by your Physician or referred to the appropriate person!! Why would a Physician tell someone who is relying on them something like that? What kind of World are we living in?? (I know the answer)
You have Rights! IF you don’t like what you are told by 1 physician, go get a second opinion. If your Physician or Endocrinologist doesn’t explain your test results, why he or she has you on different medication or insulin, you need it ask why!
Stop settling for terrible SERVICE. When you go out to dinner and the food/service is bad do you ask for a supervisor? I know I do. If you stand up to bad Customer Service, you should do the same when it comes to your health. You have to take a STAND when it comes to your health, if you don’t care who else will. Diabetic’s have right’s!!!!!
Physician’s and CDE’s should teach people with Diabetes how to live with Diabetes, instead of making people afraid of it. We (diabetic’s) should take more stand! Don’t take No for answer and if your Physician can’t give you an answer seek the answer out until you get the answer.
How do I seek the answer you might ask? There are plenty of online diabetic communities, TuDiabetes, Diabetic Connect, Diabetictalkfest, Diabetic Echoes and many more!!! Seek Help, you’ll be surprised how many people who have been through, gone through or going through what you are going through right now.
I had to vent, I could go on and on about this…grrr!!!
To Be Continued…….
Sorry for the grammatical errors I made!
