Do you know your rights with diabetes? Our guest this week is John Griffin, a trial lawyer with more than 30 years of advocating in and out of the courtroom. He lives with type 2 himself – this is an eye opening and useful conversation.

Griffin served as National Chair of the Board of the American Diabetes Association in 2011, and is the former Chair of the Association’s Legislative and Regulatory Subcommittee.

Also, if you’ve been given a blood glucose meter you probably know how to use it, but do you know how it works? We’ll explain the chemistry going on here
