Aww - I know which one is worse: MINE. My diabetes is worse -- to me. Yours, however, is likely much worse to you
I read somewhere along the way, that whether beta cell loss was caused by an autoimmune response, or whether it started out as over-production of insulin due to insulin resistance -- or possibly even if it happened by certain genetic triggers -- there are some scientists that thing that the mechanism is the same (meaning that there could possibly be one solution for many of these patients). I really don't know. i also read/heard that some folks in the functional medicine realm believe that there may be some common environmental factors that lead to all types of diabetes -- and the differences are more a factor of individual genetic or heredity components that alter the path it takes. Again, I don't know. In the end, we all face many common challenges, social, personal, and medical, and that is why this unified community is as important as it is!
