Have you been taking insulin, or any other blood sugar lowering medications in the last 2 weeks?
Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
The purpose of this question is to find out if the respondent is currently under treatment for diabetes other than taking medications. Persons with diabetes can take doses of insulin to help control their blood sugar levels. An answer of “yes” is appropriate only if the respondent was taking insulin or any other medications for diabetes during the last two weeks, and not if the person says he or she usually takes medications but for some reason
did not during the given period.
