Saw my GP a few weeks ago and he ranted about my high BG and said I would
need to get put on insulin but that he wasn't going to do it. Was going to

was not an option given my gastroparesis. Kinda thought that given what I'd
read about it. Said insulin would cause me to gain weight and I've been
gaining lately already and he's not liking it.
So... Here I am once again. GP will probably be angry at me for not going
Endo. told me just to do the best I can to get my numbers down. Kind of
hard given my limited diet. Gastroparesis limits what I can eat and the
food allergies limit it further. Am down to eating 2 meals a day and taking
in less calories than ever. And yet I am gaining weight. Told me to try to
exercise more. Also kind of hard to do given my disability and other
