Did You Hear That One About Diabetes…?

by mratner

Hello out there everyone! I am looking for diabetes myths. I will soon be posting an article on them and I would like your contributions. What are some of the best (or worst) things you’ve heard about diabetes?

I’ve been told that I don’t “look” diabetic, that I eat well so I shouldn’t have it, that I am too old to have developed Type 1, and that since my pancreas “just stopped working” something should be able to make it “just start working”. Uh-huh. Yeah, right-o! That’ll be the day.

So, what have you heard slip out of people’s mouths that made you roll your eyes or dive into an explanation? Post as a comment or email me at lettertoadiabetic @ gmail dot com.
