Hi! I’m William “Lee” Dubois (called either Wil or Lee, depending what part of the internet you’re on). I’m a diabetes columnist and the author of four books about diabetes that have collectively won 16 national and international book awards. (Hey, if you can’t brag about yourself on your own blog, where can you??) I have the great good fortune to pen the edgy Dear Abby-style advice column every Saturday at Diabetes Mine; write the Diabetes Simplified column for dLife; and am one of the ShareCare diabetes experts. My work also appears in Diabetic Living and Diabetes Self-Management magazines. In addition to writing, I’ve spent the last half-dozen years running the diabetes education program for a rural non-profit clinic in the mountains of New Mexico. Don’t worry, I’ll get some rest after the cure. LifeAfterDx is my personal home base, where I get to say what and how I feel about diabetes and… you know… life, free from the red pens of editors (all of whom I adore, of course!).

No Lemons at Lemonade Life

Everyone needs to take a quick break from my blog and go visit Allison over at Lemonade Life. She has a great article on the Guardian and an interview with one of Medtronic's folks. I even learned a few new things, like the sensor reads every ten seconds and sends an average to the monitor every five minutes. I knew I got a data packet every five minutes, but I did not know it was an average reading. See how many cool things keep slipping out from under the carpet? Thanks Allison, great piece!

Post is dated 12-16. I tell you this ‘cause I’m too blog-ignorant to figure out how to link to that specific post....

Thanks for pointing us to Lemonade Life's post on this subject.

'He said the trial that Print and others are to help "build a case for insurance companies" and to also help Medtronic Minimed work out some of the kinks in the system.'

It seems that MM should pay Wil to do this, rather than Wil pay them.
