Many people battling with diabetes also struggle with their weight which I guess is why the DN likes to record the patient's weight. When Hubby was diagnosed last June the DN weighed him and suggested a weight loss target. As he decided to follow the LCHF mode of eating he began to lose weight. To date he has lost two stone. Today at his DN appointment he mentioned the weight loss to the nurse. 'oh that's excellent, well done you !.' and asked if he would mind hopping on the scales so she could update his notes. Hubby duly obliged and then laughed as the scales registered exactly what they had done last June. Whilst you might expect a doctor's scales and your own to differ slightly this was obviously wrong. 'No that's clearly wrong, I've had to buy an entire new wardrobe and have lost 4 inches off my waist. You need to re-calibrate those !' The nurse looked over his shoulder and said 'No I'm sorry you haven't lost an ounce, perhaps your scales at home are wrong ?' He pointed out that I had also lost 2.5 stone so no, it was the nurses scales that were clearly wrong but it was obvious that she didn't believe him. So according to his notes, he is still overweight and should be on medication !! Why don't they take body measurements ? A waist measurement would clarify matters. The same scales used to weigh a person suffering from an eating disorder, the same scales that might worry a mum-to-be ? Funny how the results are never in the favour of the patient. I think I have some trust issues !
