Nothing new, I knew this at age 11, after being diagnosed and being in the hospital for 2 weeks. Every diabetic should already know this. Wow and 80-120 is not for everyone, every diabetic is different, 80 is too low for me 120 is my range.

Nice explanation! When I explain diabetes to others I like to use a 'key' as an example for the insulin unlocking the 'door' to let glucose into your cells for energy. Thanks :)

Like Type 2, this certainly simplifies a complex problem. If a person is not sure what type they are (was in a fog when the doctor told them) then this is a very good explanation.

This is a nice, informative video.

The glucose range given is the scale used in Canada (and England, I think). Here in the US, we use mg/dL which would be 80 to 120 for the target range.
