My doctor wrote the word Diabetes in my chart before I left to move to GA. Now I can't get health insurance here. My FGP tests have all been normal. He did not tell me I had diabetes. When I called him about it he said I don't need any diet changes or treatment. He based my diagnosis on one A1C test that was 6.1. Everything I have read says A1C is to monitor diabetics and not to diagnose it!! Anyone know how I can fight this?
