Hi Matt,

I do hope that you set him straight (in a nice, but informative, way!).
He could actually do someone harm with "advice" like that (someone new
to Type 1 diabetes). He needs to know that there are two types of
diabetics, etc., etc.

I know it takes time to educate folks one-on-one, but it's worth it,
esp. when their "advice" could hurt someone else.
