    Really good article Phoenix.

    I've had T1diabetes 28 years. Vast majority of hba1c's under 7.0 and sometimes in the 5's. In the 5's hypo's were most consistent thing in my life!!

    Personally I think diabetes is hugely increasing from the carb laden diets people have before they are diagnosed i think because I was diagnosed young and never thought about food excessively that it has probably been easier for me to just eat moderately and maintain size 10 size.

    I so agree that we have to all take control of diabetes, and do it any way that we can but if this was balanced with people who suffer from depression with diabetes... I think it would also show up that some of the failed diets that people do with diabetes and fepression go hand in hand....
