Today I went to see the endocrinologist that my family doctor recommended to me, and unfortunately I did not get very much out of the experience. Knowledgeable, nice, personable guy and had very nice and well mannered nurses, but unfortunately he did not tell me anything I did not know already.
For whatever reason I had high hopes for this visit and went there thinking that some mind opening, game changing information would be given to me. But that was not the case. I should not have been thinking that way to being with. In fact, I had been thinking several days ago that maybe I should have just canceled my appointment because it was already a month after my diagnosis and I was getting in a pretty good routine as it is (CGM, blood testing, insulin dosing, counting carbs etc.). So as it were, I will be more then likely going back to the family doctor for A1c tests and checkups. Which is perfectly fine by me. The doctor and I have a good relationship and he is very knowledgeable on Diabetes (as well as other doctoral subjects).
On the bright side, the endocrinologist did give me a bunch of literature for insulin pumps, which I have been thinking about investing in soon. I do not have a clue which one I would want and still need to do plenty of research on the subject. But the literature he provided was a step in the right direction for that.
