Our Endo and Diabetes Clinic team are so supportive. I appreciate that they talk directly to KC and spend time getting to know her beyond her disease. We share all kinds of things with them…especially her successes-everything from being elected Student Council treasurer to science fair awards to volleyball MVP. I know her Endo is proud of her hard work at maintaining an a1c that has averaged 6.5 for almost two straight years, but I also want them to know that she does that while excelling at life, as well. So we do share!
What don’t we share…the days when veggies are forgotten! So glad they only ask for a three day food log! We also don’t share the rare times when she has forgotten to bolus for a meal! Or that we may or may not have followed FDA guidelines regarding the number of days a cgm sensor may be used….”yeah, site changes are every three days…that’s right….” That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
But overall, we share and share and share…and are so grateful that they take the time to listen!
