I found a great endocrinologist in the area. His name is Gary Enzmann and in a two week period he was able to adjust my pump so that I no longer had extreme highs and lows. Interestingly, he adjusted it so I take LESS insulin. He said that I was having lows, my liver would kick sugar into my system in a desperate attempt to keep me alive, and then my blood sugars would go to high. A slight adjustment, and now I am always around 100 plus or minus a bit. I still have some lows and highs, but I am much, much more stable.
I just received a bill from his office, though, and it looks like my insurance doesn't cover him. Odd, he was on the list. I am hoping it's just an interim bill that will show the payment down the line. If not, I'm going to owe $533.80 for the first visit, and I don't know how much for the second. And I need to go back in December (plus get a flu shot in the meantime). I am in the process of trying to get new medical insurance. I am sure it's going to cost me big bucks, but I've got to do something. I've had crappy insurance ever since I left Missouri, and even there it was pretty crappy. It's that stuff that takes over your Medicare coverage. It is the suckiest insurance in the world.
UPDATE October 15, 2010: The doctor's office is going to resubmit the bill under a different code. Hope that works. Dishonest blankety-blank insurance company!!!!
