LifeAfterDx--Diabetes Uncensored

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!).

Happiness is…

Yep! It is a brand-spankin’ new Bayer DCA 2000+ A1C machine! No more shelping folks from the annex in all kinds of weather to the crowded main clinic lab. We can now do A1Cs in the comfort of my office while we review blood sugar logs. Oh joy! It couldn’t be more fun if I owned the damn thing myself!

My Endo's office has one, and I won't let them use it on me. I make them send me to the lab. The machine reads 1-2% lower than the lab. I got suspicious when I had 2 a1cs in a row show up in the 4s.

Boy Christine! I sure could use a lower reading! :-)
