Richard K. Bernstein, MD, FACE, FACN, FACCWS

(Advisory Board Member) Dr. Bernstein has been a type 1 diabetic since the age of twelve. He trained as a management engineer (Columbia University School of Engineering & Applied Science, B.S., 1955) and his first career was as a business executive. In 1969, while suffering from several diabetes complications, he was looking for a way to normalize his blood sugars. He aquired a device used in emergency rooms to measure blood sugars at night when the labs were closed. He then began to measure his blood sugar throughout the day, hoping to discover what made it go up and down. This led to the development of “self-monitoring of blood glucose,” a simple procedure that uses one drop of finger tip blood. The technique has since become widely accepted by the medical profession throughout the world.
