Diabetes Self-Management Blog

Following up on an earlier "What We’re Reading" feature ("Hypoglycemia Mix-Up Leads to Arrest"), we’d like to direct your attention to this post at www.diabetesmine.com. The post announces that the case against current "Mr. Universe" Doug Burns has been dismissed. Mr. Burns, who has Type 1 diabetes, was involved in an altercation with police in April and was arrested after being mistaken for intoxicated when he was actually experiencing hypoglycemia, or low blood glucose.

The blog entry is written by Amy Tenderich, a writer with Type 1 diabetes.
