Diabetes wise it has been a roller coaster as well, I'm currently searching for a new endocrinologist after a couple of bad visits with my current endocrinologist. I have been doing my best to avoid blood sugars that drop below 80, I get short tempered when that happens and that isn't fair to anyone. If I can avoid that and keep my blood sugars below 180 I will be happy. That will also make sure that everything else in my life is good. Everything from work, running and family life depends on my blood sugar. That is where my endocrinologist and I don't see eye to eye. My A1C has crept above 7 for the first time in years and I got the "You're not doing" speech. I won't sit here and bad mouth my endo, I know how my body works and what I need to do, it is a bit of a transition right now and if that means a little higher A1C I'm okay with it.
A change in endocrinologists means that I will leave the five minute ride to see the doctor but with so many options I'm willing to make the hour drive to New Haven for better care. If anyone in the New Haven area knows of any great endocrinologists that know a thing or two about cycling and endurance running with diabetes please let me know.
