Patient :I'm in NC, diabetic, type 1, on insulin pump, in control of diabetes. It's not me who has the problem. My friend / old neighbor / up in NJ, her husband is also diabetic on pills, is very out of control with his diabetes , not taking his meds, tired, peeing a lot, not testing his sugar, thirsty all the time, losing weight, and is now peeing blood. I'm with her online on facebook on IM trying to tell her to go call ambulance, he refuses??? they're having money issues, no job, hardly an income, living in their foreclosed house, no medical insurance, what should he do???
