I went to the dr a week and a half ago to have my glucose screening and the nurse said it was high 210 so she took it again 3 minutes later and it was 195 So he had me come back a week later for the glucose tolerance test.
So I go in at 9 Am and I hadn't ate since 12 Am, anyways she sticks me the first time and told me I failed the fasting, I was at 110
So I sit there for the 3 hours and get stuck the 3 times and then the nurse calls me back for the results.
the Dr didn't even come in to tell me the test results, his nurse did, She said I failed all the tests By about 15 points every time.
I was upset and when I expressed my concern for a c-section and type 2 diabetes (because this they both could be a result)
she told me not to look stuff up on the internet, and that's about all she said other then telling me I needed to come back in 2 weeks and that a nutritionist was going to give me a call for an appointment and that I needed to pick up a glucose monitor at the pharmacy.
When I went out in the hall, the dr was sitting there and ask the nurse if I passed she told him no.
then I felt like he was attacking me because he said it "wasn't about me" it was about the baby and that I needed to follow his directions so my baby didn't end up in the NICU.
I know he heard me telling the nurse that I absolutely do not want a c-section.
I hate my dr. in the first place because he 's cold heartless and doesent listen when you express a concern, but now I just want to change ASAP.
So anyways, I got my blood meter and I did my own test, I drank a whole cup and a half of white sugar in warm water and ate a candy bar and waited an hour and then tested myself. My test came back 123 and after one hour it should be under 140.
I have been keeping a log of when I eat and have been tracking my blood sugar every hour and 2 hours after eating, and also my fasting level, and every time it comes back really normal, even if I stuff myself and eat pie, cider or whatever... it won't spike like they were saying it was.
I REALLY think that this dr is trying to milk my insurance, I mean I don't understand what else would be going on here. even the nutritionist that he is sending me to is with the hospital (Cox in Springfield, MO)
Does anyone have any thought on this? I mean I don't want this dr to think he is going to take me for a ride or a C-section just because he wants more money from insurance.
