When in the Course of human events...

...it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the world wide web, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and the net's god (Bell Gates and / or Al Gore - one of them invented it right?) entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of webkind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all diabetics families are created equally screwed up, that they are endowed by their diabetes with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are venting about Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Insulin. That to secure these rights, web blogs are instituted among Women and Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the diabetic posters. That whenever dealing with overly “helpful” non diabetic becomes restrictive to these ends, it is the Right of the People to institute a new blog, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

What works for you may work for me but what works for me may not work for you.

It is natural that we have brand loyalty that doesn't make other brands bad.

Following your doctors advice is probably a good idea, even if she recommends treatment that isn't popular on-line.
