I had an endo appointment today. It’s the first appointment I’ve had since I started Afrezza.
I showed him my Dexcom Clarity Report, and he was happy about it overall. I prefaced it by saying that I’d been struggling with some highs early in the night, but that I’d increased my Tresiba dose last week and have been seeing better results since then. I’ll put my report below.
I think the Dexcom Clarity Report is a bit deceiving. It only shows between the 15th percentile and 75th percentile in the chart, so even though I had some bad spikes the week before in the early night (hence the increase in my Tresiba dose), it looks like I never go above 200. I realized he didn’t understand that (I hope) when he said that the highs weren’t bad at all.
It’s probably not really worth talking about anything with him. I wrote up a long complainy paragraph about him here, but then I deleted it because I realized you all don’t need to hear my whining
Since it’s probably not worth talking about the numbers outside of the range shown on the Clarity Report, I didn’t mention the fact that it’s only showing percentiles. The report specifies that it only shows percentiles so I don’t think I should have to say it. He’s not interested in discussing the things important to me.
Anyway, I’m wondering what you show your endos at your appointments. Do they understand the Clarity Report well? Or if you show something else, do they understand it? What do you find is the most productive thing to show them? They always want to see something…
