Do you go to Joslin?

I recently started going back to Joslin (I hadn't been there since I was a kid) and I was wondering how long it takes to get lab results back. My old doctor's office had a machine in the room to test, so I would know before I left and the doctor and I would discuss it. I'm approaching the two week mark now on my appointment--I'm getting a little anxious and impatient! So, how long does it take Joslin typically?

I have been eating EVERYTHING in sight today. Weird kind of day. Not sure what my issue is, but I have a suspicion. I just hate ending the day feeling 20 lbs heavier than when I started! ugh. I also get disappointed at my own lack of self-control. Lame.

I'm trying not to get too down on myself. My usual excuse is that it'll pass and I'll be fine, but a day of off numbers and extra food isn't helping anything and I'm willing to bet it might even be hurting things.

Hey...
Thanks for the comment on my blog.

O goes to Joslin. The results typically take a week. It's a pain in the butt - you'd think a place like Joslin would have instant test results. I've asked about it and they just roll their eyes and mutter about some higher up who doesn't want to spend the money. Um, gee, that's comforting, in a leading diabetes institute.

I'm going to add you to my blogroll, if that's ok.

ugh. it's been 2 weeks for me! However, I didn't just get an A1C--They took about 4 vials of blood to do all the tests they needed. I just started going back, so I assume they wanted to know everything :)
