Patients Diabetes (Type 1)
Topic of the discussion
Posted on 10/25/18 2:19 AM
I wish others knew the difference between type-1 and type-2 diabetes and were more understanding.
It is frustrating because we inherited this condition - it is an autoimmune disease - and we cannot just turn it off with diet and exercise. It it is not a metabolic disorder like type-2.
Does anyone else understand me?

Hi @Judy349899 I feel your sentiments. I think by educating them we can help them better understand us and what we go through.
Where do you find this the most out of curiosity? Is it your family? friends? co-workers?

I agree. I exercise, I eat the best I can, but I did not get diabetes because of any life decisions.
