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!).

Another sign of the times

How many diabetics does it take to screw-in a light bulb?

Post your best answers via comments. But a more interesting statistic might be: how many diabetics have to keel over in a national park before we rate our very own sign:


No kidding. This is a REAL sign near the mouth of Carlsbad Caverns!

Wow - that sign is crazy!

It's way to early for my funny synapses to be working properly, which is a crappy excuse for not being able to come up with even a single punchline...

I cannot believe that sign is real! That would freak me out.

here are my attempts at punchlines.

#1 - None, they'll just use the back lights on their pumps.

Or

#2 - 70 to 110.
