The primary outcome was lack of glycemiccontrol (or not); lacking glycemic control means the patient still neededinsulin, which is not the preferred outcome for a patient.

Variables

  • treatment - The treatment the patient received.
  • outcome - Whether there patient still needs insulin (failure) or met a basic positive outcome bar (success).
