He went with Januvia instead, which also has weight loss claims.

Oh, you caused me to learn something new today. I had not heard that about Januvia.

> 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.

Yes, so far all 3 of the ones I've met I've liked. One I know socially, not in her professional capacity, and she is one of my favorite people, and the next one I had an appt. with around a year ago, and I found her very personable. I tried to get an appt. w/ her this year, but she is only taking appts. having to do with insulin pumps now, and my diabetes isn't bad enough to need that. So, I was sent to a new person the other day, and I found her good to work with also, although not quite as much as the other two. Maybe I'm still just sort of displeased with the truth of what she had to say, you know, the behavioral things that I don't want to do.
I am a little surprised I haven't broken down crying at a CDE appt, I often have ended up in tears at other medical appts, and this has only let up with my pdoc/t in about the last year.

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

Thank you. I know I should keep in mind and be grateful that mine is still in just an early stage and things can be done to stymie it. It's just that I am miserable doing things like exercise and calorie counting.

> 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.

I've never heard of diabetes advice to not keep good track of glucose levels with home testing. That just seems bizarre to me.
