I have my first appointment to check how everything is going since diagnosed 6 months ago with type 1. The DM hasn’t responded to emails in months .. was requesting to change from lantus to a longer activity insulin during appointment.. to get 1/2 pen for novo rapid and requested a trail for a Libre. Have requested information about BCG vaccine. I want to come off the lantus as have read it can cause cancerous growths if have some cell mutations unnoticed already.. (Bernstein) and need the half pen as eating low carb and want to keep bs as low as possible. What’s the chances of getting any of this? I feel like since I’ve been diagnosed I’m just left on own.. little support from hospital or GP, hassle trying to get prescriptions on time and basically guessing what I’m doing. Thankfully I have been doing good enough but seeing as type is potentially life threatening with hypos from insulin doses you’d think they’d be in closer contact and actually replying to emails when concerned. What have others experienced in regard to support? Does anyone recommend anything worth requesting during meetings? Does anyone else feel as alone with this? Thanks!
