I get that some with diabetes can "cover" a meal or partake of snacks that might raise and eyebrow or two. I do it, and I think many of us do. We know our limits and our weaknesses.
However, while I do believe that "normalcy" can be taught to those who don't know anything about diabetes, diabetes advocacy may really want to reach a balance.
I read this article: https://asweetlife.org/should-diabetes-organi... about the JDRF UK and how they were trying to show people that diabetics are allowed to eat treats with a huge stock of sugary sweets and jazz hands in praise. Ooops!
I can be forgiving when someone like Jimmy Kimmel does a less than great comment, but when an organization that is known to be an advocate for diabetes glams up the carbs. Well, that is kind of head scratching.
What do you guys think?
