I quite agree, John. but we're not talking rational here, we're talking the
Uk medical profession.
There was a story on another list about a  doctor in the UK recently who
told a new diabetic patient not to test their BG, because blood testing was
dangerous and could mean "enzymes getting into the body which will cause
kidney damage"!!!!! Not sure if it was a GP or specialist - I would hope not
the latter. Unbelievable really.
