A member contacted PinnacleCare because her daughter’s primary care physician had just found her to have elevated blood sugar levels, possibly due to one of the medications she was taking. However, since this is the only medication that had been helpful in treating her prior health condition, the family and member were reluctant to discontinue it’s use.

The family was grateful for the efficient and seamless support from PinnacleCare. They are very pleased that their daughter can now leave for college looking forward to being a busy student with her many sorority activities, rather than worrying about her blood sugar levels.

The PinnacleCare team agreed that the family should not be hasty in taking their daughter off the medication, and advised the mother to have her daughter seen by an endocrinologist for a diabetes evaluation. After that, there could be a reassessment of her need for the medication in question.

PinnacleCare immediately found an endocrinologist who was able to schedule an appointment for the daughter within four business days. Relevant medical records were forwarded to ensure that everything was set for the evaluation.

The daughter’s appointment went very well and the family had great things to report about the physician. The young member was diagnosed with a latent form of autoimmune diabetes and provided with a diabetes test kit by her physician to help her monitor her condition. Since her initial diagnosis, the daughter has changed her dietary choices with the assistance of a nutritionist recommended by PinnacleCare, is exercising regularly, and maintaining acceptable blood sugar readings.
