I can not express how important to me this quote is. There are numerous occasions that I can think of off of the top of my head where people make fun of diabetics and relating weight, sugar, lack of exercise, etc to diabetes. It is so incredibly frustrating to me. If you would like to relate something, I urge you to get facts first. Only type 2 is caused by unhealthy lifestyles. It is not acceptable to lump type 1 and type 2 together considering they are two completely different diseases. I know most people are not doing it on purpose, but the ignorance is just not ok. So next time you are going to relate sugar to diabetes, please stop yourself and DON’T!!!! The two are 100% unrelated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. – Sorry if that seemed super aggressive but it is clearly a sore subject for me!
