[IP] A moment to Vent
getting so sick and tired of the following comment:
friend of mine, lost a lot of weight, and was able to go off her insulin
completely. Maybe if you lost weight ...
(fill in the blank family member) went on this diet, and no longer has to take
these suggestions, really do hurt sometimes. I know it is a lack of
education. But there is no educating these people sometimes. I have tried,
but the "myths" about diabetes has been around for so long. And
the fact that most diabetics, get diabetes later in life, and is either diet or
pill controlled. Only 5 to 10% of the diabetic population is type 1.
I'm at a lost for words
