Diabetes team finds new hormone that could transform care
Thu Apr 25, 2013
Unfortunately for Type 1 diabetics, they also have to find a way to suppress the auto immune response. Otherwise any new beta cells would only be destroyed again by the body's immune system. It's promising, and we're headed in the right direction.

I stopped using coupons. I found that I was spending more because I felt I had to buy things I didn't need just because I had a coupon.
'Amazing' results for diabetes patients after weight-loss surgery
Tue Feb 26, 2013
Thank you MSNBC for putting the distinction in your article that this is refering to Type 2 Diabetes. Many of us are still hoping for a cure for Type 1, but it is very important that the public knows the difference between the two types since in all essence, they are really different diseases.

Fat-shaming may curb obesity, bioethicist says
Thu Jan 24, 2013
Shaming will not work. Most people who are overweight or obese are already ashamed of themselves. They use food to medicate their feelings of shame and worthlessness. The problem is that there are a lot of words being thrown out there as a way to try and combat obesity.

My daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes a little over a year ago. The thought that there might be a cure within her lifetime is amazing. I have a distant cousin who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes over 50 years ago. They didn't think he would live to see adulthood.
Big rise in diabetes, especially down South
Thu Nov 15, 2012
Thank you for pointing out the difference!!! As a parent of a Type 1 diabetic child, it is very frustrating to see these people lumped in to the same category. They are completely different diseases, and most people don't understand that. The media doesn't help with that either.
You may have diabetes and not know it. Half don't
Wed Nov 14, 2012
How about the media try to educate people on the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. They are two different diseases, with two different causes. Most Type 1 diabetics are diagnosed as children, and did absolutely nothing to cause their disease.

Surprising number of deaths linked to undiagnosed diabetes
Fri Sep 7, 2012
My daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes just last year. She was in DKA before I realized that she didn't have the flu and took her to the Dr., which was only about 3 days after she started feeling sick. She was admitted into Pediatric ICU. Its very scary stuff.
