SERIOUSLY! I wish I could just hand this to people when they assume I have Type 2 and all Diabetes is Type 2. I want to hit them.

Everytime I tell someone I'm diabetic they're all like *stupid person impersonation* "Oh. Oh yeah. I got a great uncle who has that. He has to..." And I'm just like -.- "No. No you still don't understand. Please stop pretending to."

My Best Friend has type one and I don't love her any less. Going on 11 years of friendship!

The same things apply to Type 2's when they become insulin dependent. Most will become insulin dependent when their pancreas loses the ability to produce enough insulin and oral medications no longer help. With Type 1, this happens quickly, with LADA, its slower, and its even slower with some Type 2's, but all all. In many cases Type 2's are not diagnosed until their own insulin production has failed by 50 to 80%. This is why EVERYONE over 40, should get tested for diabetes.
