I am new to this forum and have a question. I see my Primary Care Doctor once a year for an Annual Exam. She usually doesn't need to do Lab work on me because I see a Rheumatologist every three months, and he always has my blood checked for the meds I take for rheumatoid arthritis. The last two years I have asked my PCP if I could have a fasting glucose screening, and she said I don't need one. Last year she said I didn't need the screening because my cholesterol was very good last cholesterol testing several years ago. I'm confused as I thought a diabetes screening was a part of an Annual Exam? My father had Type II diabetes in his senior years. Thanks for any feedback. I don't want to bother my rheumatologist, as he is focused solely on the RA. This screening would seem to fall under her care, right!
