Re: [IP] How to answer a Q?



I once told a dermatologist that BG was 140 less than two from eating.  She
was very upset and told me I had to see an endocrinologist as soon as
possible.  Little does she realize that's pretty good for a Type I.  I
think other specialists than endocrinology don't learn much in other areas
of health care.
