PAM Moore, said "So, off to the ER he went.  The ER doc refused to do any diabetes testing, stating, "You don't have diabetes because you have hair on your knuckles.  Diabetics never have hair on their knuckles.". <<<<<<

If this really happened, Get the name of the doc (or intern or nurse or whatever)   and report him to AMA, ADA immediately.  The ER Schedule can tell you who was on call, who saw the gentleman, etc.   This kind of stupidity can kill people. 
Sorry, it really ticks me off to hear of such ignorance with other people's lives.
