 You are trying to develop device to measure blood sugar using glucose's reducing potential in the hope that it will be useful for diabetics?

A scientist mentions that physiological glycoproteins and pathologically advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) will also contribute to the reduction reaction, which will, therefore, lead to an overestimation of blood glucose, a potential for an over-administration of insulin, and possibly dangerously low levels of blood glucose afterward. He warns that this will be particularly dangerous for untreated diabetics, who will have a high level of AGEs in their blood.

Is the scientist right to be concerned? Why or why not?
