Two things to note here. 1. My mother is an insulin-dependent type 2 diabetic. Her strong convictions come from experience. 2. My mother does not know I have fasting blood sugar levels that are higher than "normal" but less than "diabetic". Would it have changed her position if she had known? Who knows? She's stubborn, so I will say that the knowledge likely would not have changed her viewpoint. She's funny that way, sticking to her guns when she thinks she's right.
