The May issue of Reader's Digest magazine is touting an upcoming issue titled "Reversing Diabetes". As we all know, this simply isn't true or possible - for type 1 OR for type 2. While the symptoms of diabetes may be controlled or "reversed" (high blood sugars), the disease itself isn't reversible. It's false advertising. It's perpetuating the misconceptions the general public has about diabetes. And it ticks me off.
If you want to write an email to the magazine to let them know how you feel about this, their address is email@example.com. I wrote them an email last night, and also did a lengthy letter to them on my blog. (http://www.textingmypancreas.com/2011/04/letter-to-readers-digest.html)
