I really appreciated this article: http://www.usnews.com/health/blogs/on-parenting/2009/5/28/with-type-1-diabetes-on-the-rise-parents-should-know-the-warning-signs
because it includes these sentences: Eating right, exercising, and maintaining a proper weight can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes, but that’s not the case with type 1. (There have been some uninformed media comments that Sotomayor might not have diabetes if she shed a few pounds! That’s so not true.)
Since we talk so often about how the media doesn't differentiate between type 1 and 2, i felt like i needed to applaude an article that actually does!
