Glucose measurement, answer 4

Question 4: How are the effects of the sampling method shown in the scatter diagram for glucose?

Suggested answer:

The sampling method drops everyone below 5.5 mmol/L who is not diabetic. This is clearly seen in the diagram. Low glucose measurements are missing for non-diabetic subjects. The only measurement below 5 mmol/L are those for a couple of diabetic subjects.
