If your husband takes the strongest insulin they make good luck being an advocate for him. Any idiot who has brittle diabetes would know that it can be directly connected with heart failure. My husband went in well over a year ago with chest pain. Had a crazy woman put next to him throwing things and cussing like a sailor and when I complained about this woman being there while my husband was having chest pain and also said I need to be here because I am the only one who knows about his insulin I was thrown out. I no sooner got home than his endo told them I MUST COME BACK TO BE WITH HIM because of his diabetes! So I sat in a chair next to his bed all night long. A CHAIR! He crashed at least four times. Would you like to know why do many times? Because they had cut back so much on their finances all they had to feed him were ice cream cups of all things to a brittle diabetic!! I had to go out and get him protien to stable his sugar so my husband would not end up in a coma! There are no good hospitals in Nevada, check the AARP list and the attending docs think they are gods. The real gods are at Reno Heart, and Dr Caruso and Linda Smith who understand how much I love him and do not want to lose him. I am so afraid of the day that I might lose him because they have too big of ego's to pay attention. They also did not call in his cardiologist until twelve hours later. :(
Cons: Not enough space to list them all.
