If you missed it, Oprah did a show on diabetes ten days ago where Dr. Oz confused and scared a lot of people about diabetes with misinformation. As one diabetes educator said to me, "Dr Oz is a SURGEON.!!! Diabetes is NOT in his area of expertise!!!!!!"
I just posted to Dr. Oz on the Huffington Post - "Dr. Oz, How Did You Get It So Wrong?" - and issued a plea for him to set the record straight after he put so much misinformation and scare tactics into the water about diabetes.
Now I ask you to join me in letting Dr. Oz know that we are worthy of accurate information, not myths and fear, worthy of inspiration and hope to help us manage our diabetes, and that if he truly wants to help patients he should correct the misinformation he's spewed.
CALL TO ACTION: So, please go to the post and leave a comment, spread the word by passing the post on to others, tweet, twitter, and let's send the message that the diabetes community, and each one of us, deserves the respect we're so often denied.
