Imaginary Battles - Type 1 vs. Type 2
On the other hand, I do wish there were different names for the different types, so that I could skip an explanatory step or two.
Thanks for visiting/linking to me!
I have two friends with children with type 1. Both friends were exceedingly involved with their children's diabetes and love their children to the max. Subsequently they each developed LADA. They don't complain about it. But do you think on some spiritual level they so wanted to empathize with their children's experience with type 1 that they went on to develop it themselves? I know this is "out there" but it's something to contemplate.
I have a strong family history of type 2 . My son was dx'd with type 1 when he was 15 months old. I do see my blood sugars going up postprandially with certain meels...feel guilty that I don't eat right and exercise perfectly like the media suggests I should. I have discussed the bgs with my son and the thoughts of taking insulin if the bg goes above 200. Is this wrong?
