I Don't Understand Modern Medicine

A few nights ago I had a report, a patient's first visit with a diabetic education counselor. These counselors, they're the people who tell you to take the insulin like this, watch your carbs, watch your fats, blah blah blah.

The patient's age? North of 90.

You know what education I have to give to someone over 90? "Try not to get hit by a bus. Otherwise, keep up the good work."
