[IP] Man dies after driver suffers insulin reaction!

Ironic memory of that woman at student health of Queen's University at
Kingston, Ontario drawing herself up and saying in the nastiest tone

needed someone to test him because he was unable to test himself: "I don't
I haven't heard back from StreetHealth of Kingston, Ontario, a publicly
funded centre that is supposed to provide health services to heroin addicts
Their doctors were supposed to make a decision a couple of weeks ago about

himself. Unfortunately, he's only a diabetic who cannot test his own blood
sugar and has brittle diabetes and hypoglycemic unawareness! Now, if only he

If my husband passes out at the wheel and kills someone--I can only hope he
takes out 10--I will say, "I told you so!" and sleep very well at night.
Gee, you'd think that doctors who work with drug addicts on methadone would
show some compassion for diabetics, but apparently not. . . !
I also don't advise diabetics to keep their blood sugars high so they won't
pass out when they test infrequently. They are only putting their future
health in jeopardy. I live with the consequences of my husband's unmanaged
blood sugar levels every day. His cognition issues will probably only
become more pronounced over time.
