Been a T1 diabetic for a very, very long time.
Given any choice, I want my medical professional(s) to be diabetics too!!! Dentist, psychologist, RN, does not matter. prefer diabetic medical professionals.
I want them to have the "in the mud" PERSONAL experiences, which we do. I don't want to have to explain to them their knowledge is BADLY outdated. I don't want their knowledge to be academic or frankly just plain wrong!
Never suffered "judgement(s)" from "white coats" who have never been in our shoes.
"…Yeah sure chuckles it was the green beans that caused the low… not the IV insulin you used… "
"…sure its deliberate, we do this stuff to ourselves on purpose (sic. moron)."
Anyone else share my perspective? Anybody else comprehend it?
