Do you like going to the Endocrinologist?

I have to be honest. I am addicted to Twitter! I love tweeting with other diabetic’s. It’s hands down the best way to explain yourself, ask a question, cry and get your question answered in 140 characters or less. It’s awesome! if your not on twitter you may want to join.

Rainbowgoddess sent a tweet (see below):

@rainbowgoddess -“I have an endocrinologist appointment tomorrow. Am I the only person who looks forward to endo appointments? I like Dr. M he’s fun.”

I tweeted back- “I like my appointments too!”

@rainbowgoddess -“That’s good to hear, I hear a lot of diabetic’s dislike their endo’s. I knew one guy who referred to his “endocriminologist.”

I love going to see Wes (Endo). I ask a lot of questions– What’s new in the Endo office… new studies yadda, yadda, yadda. I like to see how much weight I gained or lost. In my head I am S5FL (size 5 for life). I don’t keep a scale in my house; I refuse to buy one. We talk about low’s, hi’s, adjust basal, bolus or insulin to carb ratio’s. I like to see how many people are on the pump/pod. We talk about the CGM. lab are always a HUGE topic. I know when my A1C is going to be a little on the HI or low side. I know the A1C is just a 3 month number but it’s kinda good to know. I like to know what improvements I need to make. I am not perfect! I am open for suggestions. If I have an emergency, I get in the same day. My endo’s office abides by “Patients first”. Ok, time to stop plugging my Endo’s office.

There are a couple things I don’t like. I wish they had a diabetic support group. IMOP, If your specializing in any disease you should have a support group. Wouldn’t that be cool? I also, wish I could go to the Endo on a Saturday; I hate missing work.

I have heard a lot of scarey stories about Endo’s. I am blessed I haven’t encountered a bad Endo yet. I’ll keep praying I don’t but if I do…I’ll drop him/her like a bad habit. If we don’t take care about our health, who else will?

Do you like going to the Endo?

Be Blessed

    I don’t mind going. My Endo keeps proving to be human and I sincerely appreciate it.
    He listens to me, follows my lead, discusses anything I want to.
    That makes a big diff.

    Here’s hoping we never encounter a bad Endo.

    I dislike going,primarily because I feel guilty that I can’t be as well controlled as Id /she’dlike.It’s nothing my endo does, she’s great.I just have enough guilt complex for a whole practice of D’s.

    I think I’m with JDRFQUEEN. My endo is good, but I dislike going because I have all kinds of mental issues. But you already knew that. 🙂

    Cheer’s to NO BAD ENDO’s.

    JDRFQueen and Scott-

    Do you think the mental part of the diabetes,is due to what your were told when you were growing up?

    I like it MORE now then I ever have before. I used to dread going, and would call and cancel every single time. But that was all my fault.

    I don’t love it, but maybe thats because it costs so much money….
