C-Peptide test and GAD65 Test results in need help interpreting them

Recommended Posts

With my limited experience with Kaiser is they listen. to outside info, or if you don't like what your primary care is just fire them and try another.

Also when I really wanted to see an endo, I asked for a phone conversation with an endo.

That worked for me. And I have not charged for a visit,

Other than that, great research, if kaiser doesn't respond call Medicare and lodge a complaint.

I don't think Medicare will sit anyone down and say what do you need?

 

I beleive Kaiser does have provisions for using a patient advocates.

 

I use Kaiser Northern California, what do you use?

I noticed you're in California; I'm in Portland (which I think is where Kaiser Permanente started, during WW2). I've been with Kaiser only a couple of months. So far I don't have any real complaints with my PCP. He did enter the referral to endocrinology. My complaint is that endocrinology refused the referral. That kind of pisses me off. Even if I'm really a Type 2, I'm still diabetic and that is, after all, something that endocrinologists are supposed to deal with. I'll keep in mind the idea of using a patient advocate.

 

Thanks again for your comments. :)
