This week, we’d like to direct your attention to this article at www.sfgate.com, the Web site of the San Francisco Chronicle, about bodybuilder and current “Mr. Universe” Doug Burns. Last week, Mr. Burns, who has Type 1 diabetes, became involved in an altercation with police and was arrested after being mistaken for intoxicated when he was actually experiencing hypoglycemia, or low blood glucose.
