Here are my six things that I think others should know about diabetes:

  1. Anybody can be diagnosed with diabetes, toddlers/infants included.
  2. A healthy diet of someone with diabetes is the same as someone without diabetes.
  3. Diabetes is emotional, stressful and sometimes very depressing.
  4. If you have diabetes, you’re not alone – there’s a whole diabetes online community (DOC) that can be found on twitter, facebook and diabetes blogs.
  5. There’s no cure and no, insulin isn’t a cure.  Double no, an insulin pump is not a cure either.
  6. I hate needles just as much as the next person.

Please consider contributing to an organization that is researching a cure.  Thanks Gina for organizing dblog day!
