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!).

A rose by any other name…

If it were a Hollywood Blockbuster, instead of a Pharmaceutical Blockbuster, it would be called:

Return of the insulin-sensitizers


TZDs: the next generation


Insulin-sensitizers III, new blood.

If it were a commercial product, it might be re-branded as a new-and-improved insulin-sensitizer:

100% weight-gain free!


Now with less edema and death!

But this is a (potential) pharma blockbuster, so instead it’s called a mitochondrial target of thiazolidinedione modulator. Say what?

Read my report on the next potential game-changer in the medicine cabinet war against type 2 diabetes over a D’Mine. And don’t worry, instead of using crazy science talk about mitochondrial pyruvate carriers, I’m going to tell you how this drug fixes the microscopic cookie conveyor belts inside your cells.

Read all about it here.
