The aim of this review was to identify and appraise guidelines reporting recommendations for the screening and prevention of type 2 diabetes. Five guidelines were included for analysis and all were endorsed by national or international organizations. All guidelines were recommended for practice with or without modifications for both prevention and screening. The overall appraisal scores ranged from 62.5 to 91.7 for prevention and 62.5–83.3 for screening. The highest scored domain was ‘clarity of presentation’ and the lowest was ‘rigor of development’. Findings call for greater attention to rigor when formulating recommendations for prevention and screening of diabetes.

Seal Polymer Industries (SPI) sold two freight containers of latex gloves to Med-Express, Inc., a company based in North Carolina. When Med-Express failed to pay the $104,000 owed for the gloves, Seal Polymer sued in an Illinois court and obtained a judgment against Med-Express. Med-Express argued that it did not have minimum contacts with Illinois and therefore the Illinois judgment based on personal jurisdiction was invalid. Med-Express stated that it was incorporated under North Carolina law, had its principal place of business in North Carolina, and therefore had no minimum contacts with Illinois. Can SPI sue Med-Express in an Illinois court? Why or why not? Which statute (rule) applies here?
