In episode 57, we continue yet again with the topic of type 2 diabetes. In this podcast, we talk about monitoring HbA1C, self-monitoring of blood glucose and, diabetes education in general. We hear Jillian Popel suggest not only is self-monitoring of glucose not really useful when it comes to overall glucose control, it in fact might be harmful. We also discuss what we think diabetes education should really focus upon. Finally, after 56 episodes, Mike and James actually agree on an issue, but it was just that all complaints about any of the content in the podcasts should be sent directly to Jillian.
1) Self-monitoring of blood glucose ESMON
2) Calculating cardiovascular risk for type 2 diabetics
