So funny to me how there is still a lack of acknowledgment as well as a bit of head in the sand when it comes to this massive diabetes epidemic. WE seem to think we are all fairies in a fairy tale and bad things will never happen to us despite our bad behaviour.
We are currently in a pickle. A sticky soup mess of diabetes by the gazillions and yet you see no REAL action. Why?
Especially problematic to have this many children “suffering” mostly silently from undiagnosed disease.
So much knowledge available and yet so little interest even.
Until the day it hits you or your family. In terms of type 2 especially in children there is so much we can do as well as reverse this if found early. So why are we not going out and actively diagnosing it?
Unfortunately in type 1 in children through no fault of their own, their bodies have attacked their pancreas and essentially killed the pancreas. And without insulin they would die.
More awareness, less scaremongering, less head in the sand, more action. More at least attempt to slow the log curve of growth.
