From the Editor

This web site was created for everyone who is fed up with the term “Diabetes” being generalized to include only type 2 diabetics. It is for everyone who is tired of watching the likes of Wilford Brimley, Patti Labelle and B.B. King only bring attention to one side of the diabetes equation. This blog is for everyone who realizes that type 1 and type 2 diabetes are two different diseases. It is for those of us who aren’t afraid to speak the truth, that an estimated 1 in 12 Americans have diabetes. Approximately 95% have type 2 diabetes, most often brought on by obesity.

Ours is NOT a disease that is running rampant because of a lack of responsibility with our health. This site is for the 5% of us whose lives have been affected for no known reason at all. This site is for the 5% whose voices get smothered under the weight of the other 95. This site is for Type 1 Diabetics.
