So often the media coverage of diabetes is negative to say the least. And us parents of children with diabetes most times feel like negative stereotypes are perpetuated. Often the face of diabetes is an overweight middle aged Type 2 and the message that our children (or us parents) did absolutely nothing to bring it on is lost. Our children’s diabetes cannot be cured by diet and exercise.
Can we say Oprah, Dr. Oz, and Dr. Ian Smith?
My daughter and I were interviewed this past week about diabetes and why I began blogging. I hope that you read this article which does a good job of showing the world a young, active child who doesn’t let diabetes slow her down.
