Patient Comments (2)
in Memphis, TN |
(type 2 diabetic) I feel that I discovered Dr. Hughes none too soon. Blood sugar was in the a1c of 8 and higher. I was using large doses of insulin. Average 45 units during the day and 88 units of lantus long lasting at bed time. Now I'm progressing to the lower side of a1c of 7. Daytime dosage is only occationally (once or twice a week) of only 3 units in the daylight hours. My nightime has been reduced to 40 percent.

Dr. Hughes is simply the most straightforward, communicative medical pros I have ever dealt with. He has proven to be significant part of my healthy life.
