Has TuDiabetes Changed Your Life?

Posted on May 5, 2014 at 11:44am 1 Comment

USA today ran a story today (Monday, May 5) concerning the diabetes epidemic among the young. It's the same old same old: the growth rates of both T1 and T2 are through the roof, and obesity causes T2.

Too bad it doesn't cause T1, also; how convenient that would be for all the soi-disant "experts".

Bob Dornhecker passed away suddenly Friday night. Bob was a husband, a parent, a respected member of the community, and a genuinely good man. And oh yes, one other thing: a Type 1 diabetic who lived a full, rich life and had a 75 year Joslin medal to prove it.

I met Bob through my wife, who volunteers several days a week at the local retirement village. (I wrote a blog about at the time. You can read it…
