Yeah - I'm not sure what to make of it either, Shyam. Makes you wonder how much peer review is involved in publishing such an article.

I’m not buying it at all.

It’s this sort of study that causes me to dismiss the vast majority of them. There are way too many coming from a plethora of really sloppy, lazy researchers with who knows what agendas.

Not buying it either. Though my late DH was diabetic, I wasn't dx'd until 15 years after he passed.
