RE: [IPk] Pale faces

Ooh-er!  I have had IDDM for 34 years, recently started on a pump, and even my
boss has commented that I look much healthier and "not so pale".  I haven't
noticed any difference myself, but so many people have commented, it must be


IDDM 34 years, D-Tron 1 month

I'm afraid if I am ever told that someone else in my place of
work, group of friends etc is diabetic and I try to guess
which it is, I always look for the person who is pale and
perhaps weighs slightly more than average and I would say 9
times out of 10 I am right.  I would like to think that I am
pale because I have red hair but all the other diabetics that
I know (including one Asian!) are all on the pale side,
although this is after 20+ years of diabetes.  I have never
thought much about it in terms of cause etc, rather it has
just become an almost unconscious observation!!  As for the
tending to be slightly over-weight part I have fixed that
with the pump now 1.5 stone lighter after 14 months happy
