  5 Ways to Make the Most of a Doctor’s Appointment Right Now Set the stage for a productive visit, whether it's in person or virtual.What’s wrong here? For one, you’ve only given your doctor part of the picture, and that means you’ll spend the first few minutes of the visit filling in the details before you and your doctor can start discussing a diagnosis and care plan. Second, the office is likely preparing for a single-issue visit and has allotted your doctor’s time accordingly.

"As my doctor told me, a miscarriage is not your body doing something wrong — it's actually your body doing something right," Dylan said. "Because something's not right with the embryo. Your body is doing the right thing. It's doing what it needs to do."

"It's hard in the moment, because you're so devastated," she said. "Having a miscarriage is awful."

While dealing with a pregnancy loss and secondary infertility struggles, Dylan said her friends didn't know how to act around her. A good friend who had not experienced infertility confessed to Dylan that she didn’t know what to say because she could not relate to her situation.

“The fact that you can’t relate is amazing,” Dylan explained to her friend. “Listen if I feel like talking about it. If I don’t, know that it’s fine.”

The mom of two has been vocal about her experience with secondary infertility and pregnancy loss.

"So many women are going through their own fertility issues," Dylan wrote in a 2019 essay for TODAY Parents. "I want to open up the conversation to get us all talking instead of sneaking onto that baby chat room and scrolling endlessly through the comments hoping to stumble upon someone going through a similar situation as us."

It may be time to have some important tests.Diabetes happens when your glucose, or blood sugar, is too high, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. This may occur because your body either doesn’t make enough insulin (a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar) or doesn’t use your insulin sufficiently. There are two main types of diabetes, but they can both cause high blood sugar levels, which can lead to nerve damage, heart disease, and kidney problems over time. Consistently monitoring your blood sugar levels and checking in with your health care team for proper treatment can prevent that from happening.
