Just wondering. Sometimes it seems as if people sometimes get offended when the general public has no clue about D. As for me, I'd say I was more educated than the average person out there However knowing what I now know, I was pretty clueless. Not sure I even knew what insulin was other than you need it. I knew that you can go low and sugar was needed to treat it. I just thought you gave insulin with meals, kind of like I just take a synthroid in the morning. Carbs?? Thought those were the things people obsessed with Atkins and South Beach were in to. (I did know that carbs were broken down to sugar though) I'm very well educated in medical knowledge too. For many years I tought drs how to do new laparascopic procedures, explained very technical products to drs and nurses in many different specialities of medicine. I was a certified EMT. So yes, I knew what a pancreas did and where it was located. I was so blown away at the first day of training though!! I'll never forget, Sam's finger poke was 440 and the dr wanted me to make sure the juice box I had given him on the way to the office was sugar free. While at the car I called dh and asked him if 440 meant high blood sugar I didn't know the range, but dh did as his dad is D. Anyone else as clueless as I was?
