“I was in the routine process of calling our LivingConnected patients. This patient never usually answered the phone, but somehow he picked it up this day. His blood glucose levels were consistently over 450 and living in 400-500 range for months. He was given oral medication that obviously was not working. I suggested that he consider going to an endocrinologist about using insulin. He did and over 3 months his blood sugars came into target range of 100-200. He religiously tested 6 or 7 times a day so I suggested a CGM. He asked his doctor. He was elated that these simple suggestions improved the way he felt with greater energy and motivation. He thanked me for doing this, but I reminded him that he did the work, I was the coach.”
