I am a very big fan of old TV. I feel TV recently isn't what it used to be. More about that soon. The reason why I am bringing up recent TV is related directly to this sight.
Recently TV programs have put Diabetes into their story line. Here are a few examples.
Rissolli and Isles ( a cop show) featured an episode where one of the leads knew the victim was diabetic, because when she saw the victims fingers there was evidence of finger stick testing on all the victims fingers.
On the show Plainsight ( a show about witness protection) a characteter was worried about his sugar dropping when the lead hit him for his mean comments to her.
Also an episode of the cartoon Family Guy had one of the characters dianosed with diabetes. I did not like this episode because by the end of the episode the character was declared cured, not under control.
One of my favorite actresses is Mary Tyler Moore. She occaisionally still appears on TV (most recently on Hot in Cleveland) She is a type 1 diabetic for many years and is a spokeswomen for Juvenile Diabetes.
Do any of you have opinions of how diabetes is represented on television?
May God Bless You
