Scared: May need a pancreas transplant

@lovette26, Good Morning and Welome to Mayo Connect. I am a liver and kidney transpant recipient (2009 – Mayo). I am concerned about hearing that your doctor says he is giving up on you. I have experienced doctors sending me to a higher qualified specialist on my transplant journey. And once I was even unlisted from the transplant list for a period of time. I was able be treated and relisted for my transplant only because my local transplant knew to send me to Mayo for the specialty care that I needed.
Have you considered changing doctors, or seeking a 2nd opinion? Is an organ transplant in your future?

Good morning He is my second the first doctor misdiagnosed me had me on pills when i should have been on insulin. Now my numbers if i can get it to 170 once a day im happy my normal even with the pump is 320 i can't seem to keep it down I'm afraid to eat a lot of the time. But my crashes are so brutal it will drop to 35 or 40 and it doesn't feel good at all
