The average John or Jane that's newly diagnosed with diabetes has a big problem. Not only do they know very little about the disease, they don't even know what questions to ask. So, they wind up looking down at their shoes and shaking their head, no, when their doctor asks, "Do you have any questions for me?"


I watched this series of short 1 minute videos on diabetes by this endocrinologist, last night. If I was first diagnosed with diabetes, today, I'd sit down, tonight, and review the Q & A with this gentleman.
There's a million questions that need answers before you can achieve a modest level of comfort with diabetes. If you can't think of any, then, start with these...and maybe, then, you can start thinking of some of your own.
