Today is the kick off of D-Blog Week hosted by Bittersweetdiabetes.com. The topic for today is what would you change about diabetes? I know the most common answer is probably simply not having it, but setting that aside, what about diabetes annoys you the most? Is it the common misconceptions about people that have diabetes? Needing to change your whole treatment plan if you happen to change insurance carriers? The seemingly constant stream of 'cure your diabetes now' products and diets?
One comment that someone made in our office was that he hates it when people say something to the effect of, "Don't eat that or you'll get diabetes!" Something that is such a common misconception but that has also just become a 'funny' little saying that those using it might not truly understand.
So what about you? If you could change one thing about diabetes today, what would that be?
