No, the doctor did not give me any reason for changing my meds, and it took so long to get in.. my appointment was at 10:30, and my brother had to be at college at 12:30, that I was just trying to get out, and we made it out at 12:00. So 90 minutes, and I saw the cardiologist for 3-4 minutes. Next week, i set the time for 9:30, and will get more questions. I am feeling a lot better with the new pill, and hope it continues.
Hi Nay. I did say it was a huge failure...lol. It is. Just go to the diabetes management team, and listen to them. They have threads about blood sugars over 400 for a month straight, or the best type of Insulin pen.
If your goal is to pick the prettiest Insulin pen, you have already given up. It isn't the sign of someone who is doing very well, or even searching for success any more.
So yes, Becky is right.. I did label the diabetic diet a huge failure/mistake, even if I never used the word mistake. It is apt.
I disagree with Becky on the definition of success. I just put up another post, but it will be my last. I don't think arguing the point further is accomplishing anything. Off to my next " fight ".
Sorry to contradict you on that point, but I do appreciate you pointing out the gist of my post. While our esteemed dietitian is worried about my phrasing, the point that her definition of success being low, and the results of low carb on diabetes, aren't being challenged. They are just being glossed over by turning the argument over to the words I used to describe the diabetic diet.
I think that in itself is telling. If she had any overwhelming evidence showing that low carb was dangerous/ ineffective in lowering blood sugars, OR showing the diabetic diet was a great success, she would be talking about that, not whether I used mistake, or failure to describe the current diet prescribed.
