In the book Diabetes Rising, by Dan Hurley, it is stated that the incidence of Type 1 is increasing, and has been increasing as long and as strongly as Type 2. (I didn't read the book, just a blog about it). I never have read about this before. Those of us who have T2 are regularly told it is our fault we have this, we ate wrong, didn't exercise enough, or maybe wore the wrong kind of socks. Why is T1 increasing at the same rate, when this type is supposed to be genetic? Could there be, as I strongly believe, a genetic link to each of them? I'm tired of the "blame the patient" mindset.
