Some people are just plain Bonkers !
These days I try to keep away from diabetes forums. Some are great and do a good job, others are dominated by a small group of nothing better to do monitor cronies. The trouble is they are like car crashes, you know looking at them will do you no good, but it’s hard to look away. This comment made me sit up this morning.
“I have two kids living at home who are 20 and 16 we have a cupboard full of biscuits and cakes, white bread in the bread bin and ice cream in the freezer just because I am diabetic and should not eat these things does not mean it should impact on other peoples lives, that’s just being selfish IMHO”
Well, as someone who has seen relatives succumb to type two diabetes complications, and has a type two diabetic son, we know diabetes can be hereditary. We are doing our best to ensure our grand children escape the family curse. If you are a type two diabetic, I suggest you do not fill your cupboards with cakes, biscuits and white bread, and that is not being selfish IMHO. You may just stop a relation from becoming a diabetic.
