Wil Dubois, author of our Diabetes Simplified column, writes from both clinical and personal experience. He works as a diabetes treatment specialist and has type 1 diabetes himself, and as such speaks both "doctor" and "patient."
He's the Diabetes Coordinator for Pecos Valley Medical Center, a non-profit clinic in the mountains of Northern New Mexico that serves a 500 square mile area. At his clinic, Wil is responsible for designing the treatment plans for the clinic's growing population of type 1s, type 2s, and women with gestational diabetes. He provides one-on-one diabetes education to over 300 patients and their families.
Wil is the author of four multi-award-winning diabetes books: The Born-Again Diabetic: The Handbook to Help You Get Your Diabetes in Control (Again); Taming the Tiger: Your First Year with Diabetes, which is now being translated into multiple languages; Beyond Fingersticks: The Art of Control with Continuous Glucose Monitoring.; and Diabetes Warrior: Be Your Own Knight in Shining Armor.
Additionally, Wil is one of the diabetes experts for Dr. Oz's Sharecare website, answering a wide variety of questions submitted by readers ranging from diabetes medications, physiology, behavior, and lifestyle. He also pens the weekly no-holds-bared "Dear Abby-style" advice column Ask D'Mine at Diabetes Mine. Wil was one of the early diabetes bloggers and still occasionally blogs at LifeAfterDx.
