my only suggestion is that she get another doc (why are some so RUDE?
), and that you print these very detailed and competent questions and go with her, questions in hand, to yet another appt. with yet another doc ... i've heard of these docs, so cavalier with their diagnosis, and thank the lord they are few and far between ... aren't they?
to tell an already frightened woman who has survived a life-threatening disease that she could die of hypo, without at least saying how, is absurd and crude and unconscionable, and any medical system that would allow such doctors to join their crew is immoral ... isn't there some sort of board that you can complain to?
(of course this is akin to telling a drowning man to sit down and write a letter of complaint about the quality of the lifejackets -- you're too busy trying to save your mum's life to do it)
