WOW - I'm in love! I can't wait until his book is done and he is on the road so that I can experience a live event - in person! He hit the Dx as an adult (type 1, Dx'd with rapid onset type 1 at age 30) and the lack of support - spot on. I also appreciate that he seems to treat his patients as partners rather than be patronizing.
