It seemed bizarre to me too.

Initially it was relayed through his nurse not to worry about the test readings as long as the quarterlies were ok.

It seemed so improbable to me that I repeated it back to him at our next appointment. I told him I hadn't been bothering with testing my blood because he had told me that it wasn't important as long as the quarterlies were ok. I don't recall precisely what he said, but it wasn't "Ack no! I didn't mean that! Please test your blood!"

So I was happy to have such an easygoing doctor and put it out of my mind.

However, Januvia and Byetta can both lead to blood sugars that are too low, so I guess I need to dust off my test strips and see if they are still any good.

I sometimes think I ought to seek out a specialist, but... I don't like doctors much in general and this one doesn't scare me senseless so I tend to let things ride.

I spoke to my therapist about all this today and he seems pretty easy going too, as does my husband. It would feel weird to me to care more than anyone around me cares.
