Well (having just been linked here from B3ta and joining up) I took a look at the start of the programme, but decided my spleen couldn’t take it. Reminded me too much of that stupid story of an American girl who’s parents didn’t treat her type-1 diabetes for religious reasons, praying instead. The girl died at 9 if I remember right. That thought still makes me quite angry. It annoys me that people don’t get the support to handle it, as it really isn’t that hard once you get your head around it, and then you can have lots of fun, without body parts being removed.
@teloz: When I was first diagnosed I lived in Cardiff, and my GP there had very little knowledge of diabetes and chose to refer me to the hospital clinic instead. the nurse there was excellent, as were the doctors I saw. It just varies from GP to GP I think, how much they handle themselves.
