In this session we will briefly discuss controlled diabetes in contrast to uncontrolled diabetes. We may think out-of-control diabetes has to do with patient “non-compliance”. We will discuss barriers to the control of diabetes to include intolerance of diabetic medication, cost of medications, education level and others.
