So the Pain's are dealing with a family situation were Mrs. Pain's mom, refusing to take our advice for years (she is 84), has been diagnosed as Diabetic!
We deal with Hypoglycemia, Diabetes, overw8. over-fat, older adults everyday in our business......just last week, we were instrumental in dropping a man's blood sugar from 300 (where he was losing his vision) to 84-100, where he felt better, avoided meds....and can see clearly (only took one week)
So knowing a few situations are out there with older parents and GP's...we just created this out of the "Shopping List"...
While not for BBing We sincerely hope it helps someone
