The average person does not know the different between type 1 and type 2 diabetes. People often tell a person with type 1 diabetes that they should eat less sugar and lose some weight. While people are trying to be helpful they are giving inaccurate advice. There are some things to say to friends and family members that do not understand this health condition.
If you are diabetic, daily maintenance consists of a seemingly endless care routine. There’s a lot to remember, and it’s easy to overlook things occasionally and slip up. If you’ve been out of your normal care routine, whether for days, weeks or longer, don’t panic before you see the doctor. Do what you can to get back into your regular routine of self care and health monitoring.
