Anyone disagree with these definitions:

A1c = HgA1c = glycosylated hemoglobin A -- is a rough average of blood sugar
levels over the last 90 days
BG = blood glucose
Type 1 = IDDM = Juvenile Onset Diabetes = total failure of the pancreas to
produce insulin
Type 2 = NIDDM = Adult Onset Diabetes = decreased tissue insulin sensitivity
due to increased insulin resistance which leads to increased insulin
production by the pancreas.
