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. Recently I had a relative who said "drinking Coca-Cola every day will give you diabetes" huh? wha? yeah, right! Keep it clean; children read these posts too.

It's a sugar free apple pie you can eat a big piece...Yummy...;-(

Pie.............ah yes, that reminds me ...
20 years ago when I was diagnosed with T1, my doc sent me to the usual newbie class to get educated. I swear, as the "teacher" assumed her position at the podium, these were the words she spoke:

"Don't worry! After taking this class, I promise you, you will be able to eat a piece of pie once a month!"

I snuck out the side door during the first break.

I just love reading everyone's answers. I got a new one the other day. Someone who knows me well said "You should eat xxxx. It's high in Omega3s". Ah, what's an Omega3? This person had NO idea what it is. Another comment for the list.

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"
.." your diabetes was caused by all that Halloween candy you ate when you were a kid".
