What is the most frustrating misconception?
I have a friend who has been managing her daughter's type 1 diabetes- she has run into many comments from others that she feels frustrated when she hears them.  One of the main things that she gets frustrated about is when others critique what her daughter is eating- telling her there are too many carbs in that food.  It frustrates her because these are people that don't know anything about type 1.

What are some frustrating comments you have heard about type 1?  How do you handle it when you hear those comments?

Hi,
There are so many misconceptions around diabetes, and everyone has opinions.  

I get frustrated that people keep telling me to just change my diet in order to cure diabetes.

I do use low carb and it works well in helping to keep blood sugars under control (along with insulin), but it does not cure diabetes.

That's so true- it's not that diet isn't important- it is, but it's not the 'cure'.
