What amazes me is the statistics of how many diabetics DIDN'T know basic principles...

  • 27 percent of type 2s were unable to name the leading cause of hypoglycemia
  • 35 percent did not know the diabetes medications that can cause hypos
  • 46 percent were not aware that unusual increased exercise can cause hypos
  • 52 percent were concerned about repeat episodes of hypoglycemia, but did not know that the most common symptoms are dizziness (22 percent) and shakiness (17 percent), and 39 percent incorrectly thought that thirst was the primary symptom of hypoglycemia.

Wow.
