A guy cold-called me the other day, essentially asking for a link to a graphic his organization created about diabetes, hoping to "get this conversation outside of just the diabetes blogosphere." I said sure.
Part of his idea was that I would share what I learned from reading the graphic, but there wasn't much. Apparently, stuff I think anyone knows isn't as widely known as I'd have thought. Stuff like:
- You can get diabetes even if no risk factors are apparent.
- There's so such thing as a "diabetic diet." Different things work for different people.
- Sugar alone doesn't cause diabetes.
There's more over there.
