Published on

Being diagnosed with diabetes is becoming more and more common, but that doesn’t make the diagnosis any less overwhelming. As the disease spreads, so do rumors and misunderstandings about it. With that, we present your Diabetes Mythbusters. Who are the “mythbusters”? They’re Denise Stumpf, RN, BSN, CDE, and Sarah Tierney, RN, BSN, CDE. Between them, they have 15 years of experience of providing education in the Springfield Clinic Endocrinology Department. And they’re not just telling the myths – they’ve put them to the test!
