A state is debating a new bill that would require physicians
to report blood sugar and A1C levels of all patients to the state Department of
Public Health (DPH). Specifically, physicians will need to report:
date of the physician visit
name of the physician
medications the patient is taking
patient’s blood sugar levels

High blood sugar and/or high A1C levels indicate poorly
