Good news! I finally was accepted to the Joslin Center for Diabetes. They are part of Syracuse University Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, NY. I am now using insulin at bedtime and this has helped tremendously. Giving myself a shot was a little intimidating, but I got used to it and it doesn't even hurt. I am feeling so much better. I am also watching what I eat religiously so I do not make my blood sugar high. Everyone at Joslin is so nice. They have the doctors, nutritionists, diabetes education classes, podiatrist, just everything needed to manage diabetes. I do have an enzyme in my liver that is high, so I have to see a gastroenterologist to find out what is wrong there. For now, I am staying at my daughter's home as she is having a baby. I am helping her with her autistic step-son who is 5, and her twin boys who are 2. Actually, she went to the hospital today. As soon as things settle down, I will be going back home to Syracuse (they live in a small town called Spencer, about 20 miles from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY.) I will write again when I get home.
