From The News Wire: Diabetes (T2) Study Halted – Expect Comments

Great Ready for “Friendly” Comments questioning your approach to diabetes management. USA Today just ran an articled titled "Diabetes study halted after safety review reveals risk."

The opening paragraph part it says, “that pushing blood sugar to record low levels sharply increased patients' risk of death.” Nowhere does USA Today say what type of diabetes is involved. So the few members of the general public that know there types will find nothing to keep them from asking type 1s or type 1care givers why they are aggressively managing blood sugar.

Have fun fielding questions implying your killing yourself or your kid by working for good A1Cs.

Oy! Why are journalists so ignorant about T1? This appears to be pretty common, from the stuff I've read....
