    If I thought I was going to get this kind of grilling I would make a mental list of difficult diabetic questions to ask as a pre-emptive strike that would make a simple memory task irrelevant. As Corporal Jones used to say,"They don't like it up em!"

    Its possible it might be an age thing - my non diabetic 86 y/o MIL gets the same memory test each year.

    Another way to stuff the system is the way the politicians and big business people do it.

    "I have no recollection of that..."

    "I do not recall..."

    During my career that was noted by staff to be 'management memory'! When they got promoted to manager they had an upgrade to extremely volatile RAM! :)

    I'm only 92, I don't remember any memory test at my D. reviews. maybe I didn't get one.

    I'm not 92, I'm an 18 year old with 74 years experience.
