Has anyone had trouble getting an official diagnosis? I have a glucometer and my blood sugar gets really low and rarely goes above 80-90 but when I went to an endocrinologist she didn't believe me. She wanted me to drive to the lab WHILE having a low blood sugar incident so she could see for herself because she didn't trust my glucometer (which I can't do because it's too dangerous to drive with low blood sugar). She was also dead set on telling me I must be pre-diabetic despite the fact that my A1C came back at 3 (which is very low). Has anyone had issues with this?
Type 2 diabetes mellitus with diabetic chronic kidney disease
I recommend visiting a different doctor.
I haven't been diagnosed despite my blood sugar reading at 40 at the ER.
My goodness. Your sugar is low, your a1c says you're not a type 2 diabetic and the fact she didn't believe you and asked you to risk your life show you how incompetent she really is. Please find a new endocrinologist.
My doctors have all been weird about my blood sugar too. I had a doctor say something similar a couple years ago, and another one who just assumed I was lying about eating. I didn't really get officially Diagnosed until last year after a glucose tolerance test given by doctor. Fun fact, you can do that on your own with a glucose monitor and jelly beans (you can find instructions for this online, dosage depends on brand of jelly beans)
I've experienced this too like no regular person goes under 70 after just a couple hours of not eating I dont understand find a new doctor cuz this is life threatening
My A1C is 4 and I finally found a endocrinologist that said I have reactive hypoglycemia and body actually produces to much insulin
No one should advise you to drive while low. I almost passed out in my kitchen the other day because I did a small workout before making breakfast. Not safe!
