I asked my dr’s office recently if I could try out a FastClix lancing device (I haven’t tried it yet, but when I do, I’ll post a review of it), so I swung by on my lunch break one day to pick it up, and to get an Rx for the drums.
I had the Rx for a week before I remembered to drop it off .. but as I was sitting in the drive through lane at Walgreens, I glanced down at the script and saw this –
So my question is this .. why is it labeled “Uncontrolled”? I’m not sure why I took somewhat offense to this .. after all I’d just dropped my A1C by 1.2 points in the last 3 months. I’m in better control now than I’ve been in a long time. And yes, I know that this is a generic sticker they put on everyone’s Rx’s .. but why? And does that mean that if he’d checked the box, right above the one that was checked, then I’d be “Controlled”?
Things that make you go “Hmmmmm….”
And realistically, are we ever IN control of diabetes?
