You don't go up to everyone with cancer and give them herbal recipes or assume that they have cancer because they smoked. (Sorry if this statement offends anyone, please correct me and I will change it.) You don't do those things because there are so many types of cancer and the person could have just had it in their genes. So why do people confuse the different types of diabetes? It should not happen ever.
This is why it upsets me that insurance companies dictate how frequently I check my blood sugar, they reduce the amount of test strips I can get significantly... this image is why it's dangerous..we need to be able to make as educated a decision as possible when it comes to dosing our insulin.
