Man, sure is out there for a doc to refuse to write an Rx for glucagon. That's a new one.

Link doesn't work, but I found the site at www.hopediabetesofgilbert.com.

As is always the case, the supplements are expensive & a lot of hype. Smoke & mirrors. As usual, there are no clinical studies to back up claims. This one is particularly sneaky because it cites a previous UK study with this doctor's "overlay." Meaningless & misleading.

I especially enjoyed their 21 day refund policy after 12 months on the supplement program. Huh? How does 21 days translate into 365 days. They also don't say how much money would be refunded.

You're not being negative. You're too smart to fall for this nonsense.

I'd ask your doc for hard evidence, clinical trials, etc. & then I'd find a new doctor.
