In last month’s edition of Diabetes Bites we asked for your opinion of using diabetes as a means to receiving special treatment and privileges.
A. Living with diabetes is tough!It is perfectly reasonable to “play the diabetes card” for special privileges any time.
B. Diabetes should only be used for special accommodations when it is TRULY needed.
C. Using diabetes to get special treatment hurts our reputation, and should never be done.
For the second month in a row, we received a record number of responses:337. Looks like we deal with a (mostly) law-abiding population.
THIS MONTH’S NEW SURVEY QUESTION:
This month, with Supreme Court judges being… well… judged, we would like to know how you judge the different types of diabetes.Is one worse than the other?Or are they pretty much the same?Tell us your opinion.
Which form of diabetes is worse?
A. Having type-1 diabetes is worse than having type-2.Type-1 requires constant work and attention, and is almost impossible to manage all the time.
B. Having type-2 diabetes is worse than having type-1.Type-2 requires major lifestyle changes and is usually coupled with a lot of other health problems.
