Diabetes sucks. While type 2 diabetics can treat themselves with diet, exercise and medication, because of insulin resistance, type 1 diabetes is more severe. Those afflicted face an incurable autoimmune disease, not a lifestyle disease, for life. Only about 10% face this this prospect. Today, I donated to my friend Kate’s fundraiser, for Beyond Type 1. Her daughter was diagnosed at a very young age with type 1 diabetes and will be managing it her whole life.
