  • $5 Could Tell if You Are Type 1

    I found this to be so great. Sometimes Doctors guess that a patient is type 2 just because of age. When you are an adult and end up with type 1 it's almost like they see you with 3 heads.

    Does anyone else feel that they caused their type 2 diabetes? I don't tell people anymore because I feel I get judged.
