In the prevention of diabetic complications, controlling postprandial plasma glucose in patients with well-controlled type 2 diabetes is at least as important as controlling fasting glucose levels. Therefore, the ideal treatment for patients with type 2 diabetes should include a combination of agents that lower basal plasma glucose and agents that control meal-related glucose excursions.
I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness, and willingness to remain vulnerable.
