According to my consultant 2018.

Well that is it!
I have had a letter confirming that my specialist endocrinologist does not wish to see me in an appointment unless it is an emergency.
This has been coming for a while now.
It is because, I have complete control of my condition and in his words,
Mr ......... attended clinic today, we have actually agreed he does not need to attend my clinic anymore as he is now on a stable dose of Sitagliptin for his Reactive Hypoglycaemia and he is doing very well on his dietary management of this condition.
I'm a bit sad but glad, I enjoyed his clinic visits, his knowledge and experience, with his personality, had become a worthwhile experience for me.
He was never resolute in his beliefs regarding treatment especially when it came to complex carbs, my extensive food diary, actually showed the reason why and he admitted that, I was a bit weird to actually not need complex carbs, indeed my blood panel results from last October were so good he questioned my resolve and how I had achieved the good results.
My general health is so good, he couldn't argue or disagree, the diet for me, was actually working.

It's been a long time coming to be as healthy as I am.
I have my life back and I'm not going back to what was actually making me ill. And would probably have me not being here!
I have my specialist endocrinologist to thank for that, I will be forever in his debt!
But I have this forum and its knowledgeable people to thank for eating as I do now!
And of course, my resolve to be a pain for all my family and friends, to be around for a lot longer than seemed possible a decade ago!

Best wishes!
