Is it possible to not be overweight and have type 2 diabetes or to have type 1 and have never known about it?
Or am I just being over dramatic. Because I swear I have all the symptoms of diabetes
I think if you were type 1 or juvenile diabetes you would probably know it by now because you would have been born with it. I know several people with type 1 and with the exception of one person all became extremely sick as children. That one person got really sick at 18. My first cousin went into a coma as a kid. He recovered but Later he went blind and eventually died at age 23. I do know skinny people with type two. My uncle has always been slim and he lost part of his leg to diabetes. Diabetes is no joke. See a doctor
hmmm thanks!I'm going to check it out next time I see a doctor.
Yeah diabetes is now joke and Type 1 is the more "dangerous" one. People who are overweight and have type 2 diabetes can SOMETIMES get off medication or symptoms abate once they eat healthy and workout, and lose weight. Diabetes runs in my family and I have been symptom free (I will be 25 in March) however I think it is because I changed the way I ate once I live with my dad.
Curse you iPhone!!!

Products: Whatever works!
No, this is the first book I have ever read by him. (Although I do own "Looking for Alaska" I just never got around to it, shame on me!). However, one of my good friends has already finished reading her copy of "The Fault in our Stars" and she couldn't stop gushing over it. Sooooo, I gave it a try. Really good so far!
We'll have to talk about it once we both finish reading!
Yes, we definitely have to talk about it! I stayed up super late last night reading. If I could stop crying I could be finished before I pick up my son from school. Lol. But I keep crying... those damn tears get in the way. SMH. That's what I get for reading books like this when I'm PMSin.
I finished last night so just let me know! The ending was awesome in my opinion.
The ending was beautiful. Okay, the whole story was beautiful. Honestly, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to finish reading because it was seriously getting to me. Haha! I'm not a big crier except when it comes to subjects like this. I'm glad I finished though. It's kind of a happy sad...? What are your thoughts?
It took Paula Deen 3 years to tell people she had Diabetes and her reason:
" I would come with information, and I would be armed to be able to help others."
No, you wanted to be "armed" with a lucrative pharmaceutical deal. Cuz truth is, you may cut back on a stick of butter now, but you been pushing them 40,000 calorie meals on the show for the past three years while you knew you had the "sugah".
Money. That is what it is about.
I like Paula Deen's personality and her life story. But I've always wondered about the fact that her food is so high in calories, fat, sugar, etc. I wondered if she couldn't make that same interesting food but in a more healthy way. Like some black Americans with Soul Food..instead of using unhealthy ingredients some have switched out that for healthier options but are still able to make great tasting Soul Food.
Now to learn she has diabetes...it's unfortunate. But yeah I think her concern was definitely about her livelihood and that's why she didn't come forward about her condition. Sad.
Her son has a show now where he makes healthier versions of his mother's recipes. I think it's called Not my mama's cooking. Now that she has announced that she has diabetes, I'm wondering if that's why his show came about.
