Are we shrugged off with a "it'll do" attitude?

So somethings crossed my mind a lot lately.

Figures show that the average person without diabetes will have a blood sugar between 4 and 7 mmol/l. This is classed as normal and safe.

So when us people with diabetes get blood readings of between 7 and 8, 7.6 for example and we're told "Thats okay for a diabetic" should be be happy because we are people with diabetes or are we just being shrugged off with an "it'll do cause youre not normal" kind of attitude.

It's not just with blood readings.. when you go to clinics/doctors etc you very often hear "thats ok for a person with diabetes".. does that imply were not good enough to be "normal"?..

This is just a short post, but really got me thinking..
