Episode 165: Diagnosing type 2 diabetes – as much magic as science

In episode 165, Mike and James talk about how should we diagnose type 2 diabetes and should we use A1c, FPG or OGTT or a magic crystal ball. At the end we come to the conclusion that you need to realize the vagueness of the diagnosis so you can be specific in your recommendations.
