      My Medicare covers a endocrinologist. I go about every three months. Call your Medicare co and see.

      A nutritionist can help with what to eat, but really, so can Google and YouTube. Search eating as a diabetic you'll be surprised. Oh, and stage 3 is usually quite a ways from any thoughts of dialysis. Hopefully the referral will come in time.

      Have you considered seeing an endocrinologist or maybe switching doctors?👍

      Did that Dr prescribe a blood sugar testing at home for you? That way you can check your own blood sugar since he’s too lazy to test you while you’re in his office.
