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?
