The doctor monitored my blood sugar by the readings I took

Customer Question

The doctor monitored my blood sugar by the readings I took every morning. He never drew blood work & got a creatin level. Is he negligent?

He only read the last 5 or 6 readings of the month. If they were Ok then he was satisfied.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
He also never got an A1C level.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be glad to Answer your question and the only thing I ask in return is that you leave a positive rating so that the website will give me credit for assisting you, Fair enough ?
If the doctor knew that you had diabetes and possible kidney problems from your blood-sugar level, then the doctor should have also taken your blood sugar level several times per week in order to determine that the sugar level in your blood was not above the acceptable kevel.
And if the doctor had reason to know that you were diabetic, and had chronic kidney syndrome, then the doctor should have been extra cautious with you and monitoring your blood-sugar level. The doctor should then have realized that you would require blood to be drawn fairly frequently, so that he could monitor your blood sugar level.
If the doctor's failure to monitor your blood-sugar level caused high levels of creatin not to be detected, then you should see a lawyer with experience in medical malpractice cases as soon as possible.
