A patient goes to his annual checkup and is surprised to know that his blood sugar level is greatly increased. He says to the doctor that he never had a problem with his glucose level in the past. Is the diabetes likely Type 1 or Type II?
Type II. Because the diabetes is developed later in his life, it is most likely non-insulin dependent Type II diabetes. Type I is genetic and is found when you are a kid.
A biology student is trying to Gram-stain and notices that after adding safranin, all of the cells turn purple. Is the cell most likely gram-positive or gram-negative?
