[IP] Educating the Public?

Has everyone been seeing a rash of diabetes-related articles in their local 
newspapers as a result of November being Diabetes Awareness Month?  Our paper 
yesterday had an okay article about a child with type 1, but the accompanying 
photo caption read:

"Alexander tests his blood sugar levels at his home in Killeen.  A low 
reading could mean he'll need an insulin shot, or something to eat."

Last week, the paper featured someone with type 2, and the same writer 
 mentioned that the person had started out on insulin pills when first

No wonder people are confused!
