Ever get good and mad at somebody who doesn't know a thing about "D"? I'd like to read a few dumb statements. I would like to collect them, print them out, and give 'em to those folks.

Not going all the way back to see if this has been said already...
"If you lose weight your diabetes will probably go away." My BMI is 24.something, and I'm LADA. Soooo bugs me. Does anyone know of a good, concise, easy-to-read explanation that includes the genetic factor in T1 & T2?

Here's a few...relating to type 1, ..."you can't eat that candy, your diabetic"
