With one reading?

Postby pdh0224 » Tue Sep 21, 2004 10:03 pm

Dear teacher,

The first study, done in England, looked at 10,232 people aged 45 to 79, including several hundred with diabetes. They were studied for six years and were given a test that, with one reading, reveals a person's average blood sugar for the past two to three months.

Q : What does "with one reading" mean in the sentence? I think "by cheking just one result figure of someone's test"

What do you think?

All the best, :)

Yes - with just one look at the data.
