Thanks for the data point! Everything about this coronavirus is so new that it's good to see groups which should know confirming specifics rather than reducing it to "diabetic = yikes!".

Now to worry about my other risk factors....

Now with less sugar!

I'm not sure what they mean.
They could mean anything not under is "uncontrolled" but that seems unlikely.
They could mean fluctuating widely is "uncontrolled" (8 one day, 14 another).
That seems more likely.
What is your a1c?
