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!).

High signs: Inquiring minds want to know…

Get to your local newsstand and pick up a copy of the latest issue of Diabetes Self-Management Magazine. Right now. Why? Because, I’ve got a major research article in the Sept/Oct issue called “High Blood Glucose: What’s Behind the Symptoms?”

No mere list of all the sundry warning signs of high sugar we see every-fucking-where, in this article I investigate what causes each of the symptoms. We all know that when we’re high we pee like racehorses, get grumpy, and can’t see straight. But ever stop to wonder why?

Why does high blood sugar make you pee like a racehorse?

Why does high blood sugar make us irritable?

Why does high blood sugar make your vision blurry?

I answer those questions and more, revealing the biological mechanics behind the 13 leading symptoms of being too sweet. (Wow! That makes me sound like a real journalist, doesn’t it?)

So get a copy today and read all about it.
