Again, I must say sorry, but the AACE site has pulled the page referred to in the first link.
The battle between physicians and patients about information on the Internet just will not go away. Physicians continue to say that the Internet is not a reliable source for information and do not want their patients getting their information from the internet. Patients are complaining that their doctors are not providing them with information and the internet is the only place they can see and get information. Now who is right in this battle? Well, both are right, and both are in error.
