And sometimes the very Dr's (who also have diabetes) telling us "how to do
diabetes" are not personally able to do what they "help us" accomplish...


At one time, several years ago, I had a father-in-law ask "how can I get my
son in law to take care of his diabetes?"... I had no suggestions for
him....  About the son-in-law: Was a diabetes specialist (M.D.) who had
gotten lot of thank you letters from his patients. And was working out of a
large "diabetes medical practics" having 8 to 10 (or more) doctors.

And then there was the CDE who quit being a CDE (after her personal
diagnosis) because "could no longer lie to the patients"...

Sad how we continue to look for "the diabetes answer" even while saying to
someone else Y.M.M.V
