where people touched by diabetes help each other.

I've been type 1 for 4 years and on the pump for 1 year.... I'm on my 4th endo and for some reason it seems that I end up telling the dr what to do. They tell me to set my settings one way and I end up hitting rock bottom in the lows, so it seems as tho I can't find a good endo here in Houston??

If you are anything like me, I just had a hard time listening to them tell me what I couldn't do or eat. I avoided seeing the diabetic educator for years cuz of that. I recently starting seeing them again and they have really helped regulate my BS levels. I have been on the pump for 11 years, and the sensor only a couple months. Since I have started visiting the diabetic educators more regular, and not the endo, things seem to have improved a lot.

I have finally come to terms that I'm a diabetic, I'm extremely active, I'm not a text book diabetic. My dr just don't listen when I tell them anything. I'm also a personal trainer and a medic. When I'm active I don't even have to wear my pump.

I agree w**** But I've come to the conclusion that really no one knows what we go thru or need unless you've walked in our shoes. Don't be down on endo dr. They're hard to find. Use your best judg

*judgement & seek out an endo that has diabetes or has a member In their family.
