    Watched the pilot episode. Realized I've been doing it wrong. Next time my daughter is over 300, I'll tackle her , scream YOU'RE HYPERGLYCEMIC! And inject her with insulin immediately which should just make her sleep for about 10 hours. Who knew! ;)

    The commercials for the show looked dumb, but I like the actor from his work on Rescue Me so I tuned in for 5 minutes to check it out. It just happened to be during this scene and I agree, it was very silly. They also injected him with 20 units of insulin as a correction for a 300. :eek:

    I also was wondering about the BG machine they used where he just stuck his finger in it, a light blinked and they read his BG. Where can I get one of those? :cwds:

    I just read it's been cancelled after the second episode. :p There's always Body of Proof on ABC to judge D portrayal.

    I should add that actress really does have Type 1 so it's leagues ahead of Do No Harm.

    I watched it and thought they said Hypoglycemic and then dosed with insulin. LOL I hate when movies use the wrong terms of diabetes. Might need to have my ears checked! I loved the show. Did they really cancel it after the second episode? darn....:confused:
