Re: [IP] Re: i[IP Barittle diabetes

I disagree....it depends on the person. Not treating properly but not all
'brittleness' is a result of that.... my daughter is a prime example as she
has so many other medical conditions and meds plus she has sudden drops and
seizures which are much better pumping but she still gets numbers that cannot
be explained.....I am so glad she is in this time and not when my brother was
growing up with it as I don't believe she would still be alive....

*Brittle Diabretic* is a term medical people use when they don't have a clue
how to help control your DM. With home blood glucose testing and rapid-acting
insulin it is now possible to identify trends and treat them properly. No more
*brittleness.* Hope things go well with you.
