Hi, I was diagnosed as having diabetes by my primary care physician a number of years ago, I recently got low, and eventually ran out of my medication, my pharmacy attempted to get authorization to fill the prescription but was denied, I attempted to make an appointment, but the receptionist told me he was fully booked up to September. So because I could not get this medication, I stopped taking it months ago. I recently had to go to a Minute Clinic for a Physical for my health insurance
. I did not know they would be doing any blood work and explained that my A1C would likely be off the charts, and I had not fasted either. I was then shocked to learn following their test, that my A1C was totally in range! How could this possibly be? I hadn't taken my medication for months, and did not fast before the blood test, and it was normal? I was diagnosed with a deadly decease, thought my health was in peril and might actually begin to lose limbs and go blind, and all along I was not even sick? not to mention he had me on medication I did not need to take! Even a totally healthy persons blood would be elevated not fasting, having instant oatmeal, and several cups of coffee with creamer before this test, and mine was normal?
My question is: do I have a case against this doctor for falsely diagnosing me with a potentially deadly decease, and prescribing medication I never needed?
Not to mention the Psychological trauma I was put through learning that my health was that bad and what my future held having to live with this decease that would likely get worse with age. I was positively devastated when I was diagnosed with this horrible decease. only to find out, that I never even had it. Is there a case here? Thank You
