Dr Forrester took time to answer all of my questions and concerns including stopping my Lantus, adjusting my Glyburide dose to prevent nighttime drop in blood sugar. She also discussed a healed blister that I had on my arm which was the second one that had popped up over 3-4 month time period and recommended that I follow up with dermatology of another one appears.
