I have been a type 1 diabetic for 37 years now ( I am 40) & although a hell of alot has changed for the better for diabetics I still think people are VERY ignorant of the importance of early diagnosis & also peoples attitudes about diabetes needs to change…. a) You aren’t obese & thats why you have diabetes b) YES we can eat sweet things (But only in moderation!!) c) NO we didn’t CATCH diabetes & NO we can’t pass it onto you either. The sooner people realise these issues then perhaps we can get a fairer publicity & help with the everyday things that affect are life due to this auto immune disease
