I had to visit the dentist yesterday afternoon as I had broken a tooth. Not only did I get told that this tooth would have to be taken out in hospital - it was a wisdom tooth and will need to be surgically removed- but I then get a lecture that began "I know you look after your teeth, but as a diabetic..." I listened to her patiently but I was thinking "I clean my teeth after every meal and floss and use a plaque removing mouthwash every night, all of which takes me a long time. Do you know how much time I spend looking after this disease? The meal planning /getting, the exercise, looking after my feet, taking my blood pressure, doing blood tests?" I do get fed up sometimes.
