Re: [IP] ABC news



Dear Sylvia,
Just an observation I made watched the story on our National news here in
Australia and I read the B.G. as being 5.6 mmols perfect!!!  not a hypo tho'
I could have been wrong it was only on the screen for a second or two isn't
it a shame we can't have a universal scale for B.G. readings
Best Wishes
Joann
