Abstract

Some patients will go to great lengths to get the results they need, as Dr Phillips recalls in this case of a man with diabetes.

Article Extract

Mr C, a taxi driver who had type 1 diabetes, had made an appointment with me so that I could complete his application for a commercial driving licence. Reluctantly, I had to tell him that I couldn’t state that his diabetes was well controlled because his A1c was 10.5%, indicating that his average blood glucose level was in the mid teens.
