So who am I to host this blogsite ?
My name is Jim Robinson, I was diagnosed more than 20 years ago as being a Type 2 Diabetic. The experience and insight I have gained over that period of time as a patient, and my efforts to keep informed and up to date may be of value to those who have to travel the same path as I have done, and still continue to do with my continual battle to control my blood sugars.
I am not a health-care professional or nutritionist, I do diligently seek out and read with a questioning eye whatever I see published in matters related to diabetes.
This is such a frustrating disease to get control of. We have learned that much of the care of the diabetes condition is left to each individual patient, and while we understand and accept the need to follow the doctor’s instructions for the treatment of our diabetes, so much of the management and control of our condition is in our own hands, the actions that we take each day can affect the outcome.
