So apt went from annoying to just plane pissing me off. I failed overall by 2 bleeping points!! Yeah 2 points grrr. First draw said had to be under 95, I was at 95, so she said that's a fail. ****! Second had to be under 180, I was at 170 so no biggie. Third had to be under 155 and I was at 157 so she said well that's it. I'm like what! You can't give me like 5 more minutes or something, but guess not. But now I am kinda pissed at the office, cause I only saw the nurse since my Dr was in surgery. All she did was say ok so now you have to follow a diabetic diet and get this prescription filled to monitor you blood sugar. As I was reading the prescription it dawned on me that she meant I was going to have to prick my finger everyday now, but she didn't tell me that I had to ask her what all this means and what do I do? Do I get a list of foods to follow etc? Cause I've never been through this before. I know nothing about diabetes. She was like yeah you will prick your finger everyday and the diet avoid white starchy foods and then she says you can find info about diet plans online. Ummm so I was basically told to google what I am supposed to do now. Maybe it's the hormones, but that jsut really pissed me off. Like where is my guidance about all this? I dunno I love love love my Dr so won't be changing offices or anything, but I seriously started thinking about it after that conversation.
But anywho so with the holiday and all I can't get my stuff till Tuesday so will start then with tracking everything. I see my Dr again in 2 weeks and I am seriously considering talking to him about the information given to patients. I mean I am an educated person who works in the medical field so I can figure this out, but what is happening to these people that don't understand how these things work? OK end rant. Sorry for those who read that mess and maybe I am just hormonal and annoyed.
That sucks, I'm sorry to hear about the fail. I remember seeing a GD class on the hospital schedule with one of my previous pregnancies - maybe you can find out if a hospital in your area has one? I agree, your dr should really give some more direction. You are a smart woman, but I think of the women less resourceful.
I would question the results with your doctor and I would also be pissed. That nurse was super unprofessional! I hope he comes back and says that she was mistaken and shouldn't have given you that direction.
