TopicDiabetes Misinformation Part 1
I was still confused as to why my insurance companyType 2 Diabetes Defeated would do this? Well, they are obligated to pay for a lot of things, but if you don't ask them for it they are not going to voluntarily give it to you. That's just the way it works with them, and I'm sure it doesn't surprise you one bit.Like a lot of other diseases, Type 2 diabetes creeps in slowly. It's impact is almost always lifelong, but one may have it for years and not even know it in some cases. Then one day you visit your doctor, and you get some news that starts out pretty shocking... you have diabetes!
You now rank among the millions of people who occupy every level of income, social class, every race and sexuality, and who are roughly equal in numbers between women and men. You're a diabetic now. If you're like most people, you'll go through a horrible moment of fretting over what you may or may not have done to bring it on yourself. You might also wonder if this is something you can blame on someone else.In the case of Type 1 diabetes, the cause is still not fully understood but it is believed to be of immunological origin. The majority of Type 1 cases are triggered by an autoimmune disease that destroys the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. If most of your family is Type 1 diabetic, you have a much higher than average likelihood of being that way yourself.
