Diabetes patients as consumers

Amy Tenderich from DiabetesMine.com sends over this message and a link. Worth reading and watching.

We patients living with diabetes don't have a cure yet. But life has gotten A LOT better since the Internet has given us a place to gather and a collective voice.

It's also changing our relationship with the medical establishment and pharma companies, so they finally view us as consumers, demanding the right products and treatments to help us live better.

In time you may bet a cure will be found. The Internet is the next best thing to sliced bread so as to speak. The Internet is the place where we can always get a second opinion if needed
