Re: [IP] Recent articles on MSN and MSN Health sites


I noticed the same article just before your email was posted to the list.

I too had a problem with part of the article, though for a reason not 
related specifically to the diabetes.

I first heard of Mayo (the hospital where "his" father was a patient with 
"severe diabetes") over 40 years ago.  At that point in time Mayo Clinic 
was (and probably still is) one of the premiere cardio-vascular facilities 
in the country (USA).

According to the Mayo Clinic web site there are 17 medical and scientific 
specialists who work with all aspects of diabetes within the Department of 
Internal Medicine.

My questions to Mr. Sullivan will be: Did he have a diabetes complication? 
OR Did he have a major medical situation and then the diabetes was diagnosed?
