It is startling the lack of comprehensive, conscientious training about diabetes management that the diabetic receives. Last week I met a fellow who's A1C was in the mid 8 range just diagnosed and his doctor did only three things before sending him on his way. His doctor prescribed Metformin, told him to diet and lose weight. That was it. When I asked my new friend about blood sugar testing he said his doctor did not say a word to him. FYI this man has foot neuropathy and requires special care. Since the military has basic training just to get you started should diabetics all be subject to basic training for diabetes management? We really need a 12 step program.
