Informative. However, not all diabetics are textbook cases and much depends on co-morbidities that can have an effect on a person's BGLs. Where indicated someone could be 1.5 (neither type 1 nor 2 or fit into both), that is very true and not all medications have the desired effect on us. It is far more complex.

This resource provided a good over all coverage in the time allowed. It served as a prompt to investigate further in relation to values, methods of treatment and choice of medication + referral services / access to resources
