I don’t know what’s more outrageous. Halle Berry’s sharing stupid stories about her Type 1 Diabetes “switching” to Type 2 because she doesn’t need insulin, or the media who doesn’t get more informed on the issue. It’s sickening to see this kind of misinformation, it makes me angry!
Type 1 and Type 2 are COMPLETELY different in their etiology, developed in/by two different ways. One does NOT become the other. We would think people these days can differentiate one from the other, but we would be wrong. Come on, some still think diabetes is the result of eating too much sugar, meh! That’s probably one of the reasons why research gets slow at times: IGNORANCE!
I’ve managed to ween myself off insulin, so now I like to put myself in the Type 2 category.
I say: Honey, you better learn more and stop making a fool of yourself in public. Don’t be so freaking stupid and understand that if you’re Type 1, you will never be able to make it without insulin. And it’s wean, not ween. Ugh.
