c-peptide is low with exogenous insulin. (c-peptide made as a byproduct of insulin production in the body) repeated visits+ high insulin+low c-peptide= exogenous insulin abuse. In a child-> factitious by proxy

sunshinesweetheart  ugh, I feel like a child could misuse their insulin by accident without proper supervision. Totally thought she had T1DM and not enough guidance on how to use the meds. annoying

I’m not sure about this one but the way I thought about it was that since the confidence interval included 1, it was not significant. And thus p value must be above 0.05

tea-cats-biscuits  That makes sense! +  
asapdoc  Had the same reasoning +1  
jkan  I get that it's not significant, but why is it 0.05<p<1 and not p>1.0 +5  
jkan  nvm, it's can't be greater than 1 because then it would have a negative% confidence interval which cannot happen (Think if p>0.05 means at least 95% within confidence interval) +6  
charcot_bouchard  p=0.05 means theres 5% chance null hypothesis is true. p=1 means theres 100% chance null hypothesis is true. >1 means >100% chance which isnt possible. +4  
wowo  p is a probability, so can't be greater than 1 +4
