In Reply Dr Giugliano and colleagues comment on our Viewpoint1 and agree that reducing glucose levels is important to prevent both immediate symptoms and sequelae of hyperglycemia and the long-term complications of diabetes. However, 3 important questions remain: (1) To what extent should blood glucose be reduced? (2) How should glycemic reduction be measured? and (3) Is glycemic reduction sufficient for improving the outcomes that are meaningful and important to people living with diabetes?
