Looking back over my numbers in the last year, I'm surprised he didn't add something a year ago. They went up and down a lot. Last quarter was 7.

We had talked about Byetta maybe a year ago, and I was surprised that wasn't what he prescribed given that I know the conversation was in his records. He was all set to prescribe it when my next quarter was lower. He went with Januvia instead, which also has weight loss claims. I haven't noticed anything, but I've only been on it two days.

I think I'm feeling a bit better about the whole thing now that I recall our discussing it a year ago. Apparently I can be good at forgetting.

Did you like your educator? I haven't seen one yet. I did see two nutritionists. The second one was ok, but the first one made me cry. Everything she recommended involved low fat yogurt and cottage cheese. It put me off anyone in the field, I think.

I'm sorry you're having to deal with this too. I admit that I am not a particularly good patient. :(

I suppose I'll have to dig up my glucose meter. My doctor sort of discouraged my taking detailed readings, since he considered my quarterlies ok.
