Anonymous asked: Holy shit way to pass off ignorance as fact with that diabetes meme. Poor lifestyle choices including consumption of high amounts of sugar can absolutely cause type 2 diabetes.
Do you mean this meme?
Let me educate you a little here. Your statement that sugar causes diabetes (any type) is the ignorant one, not mine.
Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the pancreas produces little to no insulin. Not preventable, no cure.
Type 2 Diabetes is insulin resistance. IT’S GENETIC. While poor diet and/or lifestyle choices can contribute to the development of type 2, it is not a direct cause. You can eat 20 fucking candy bars a day for 20 years, and IT WILL NOT GIVE YOU DIABETES. ANYBODY can develop Type 2 Diabetes if they have the gene for it - even fit, healthy, athletic people who eat all organic healthy foods. You do not have to be unhealthy to develop it, and living an unhealthy lifestyle will not directly cause your body to develop it.
I have had Type 1 Diabetes for over 10 years - do NOT come into my ask box and anonymously spread your stupid ignorance like the cowardly pussy you apparently are. Don’t you dare try to tell me false nonsense about my disease.
I do thank you, however, for reminding me of that meme. I’m very proud of it, considering it’s one of the few diabetes related memes on the internet that spreads TRUTH about this unforgiving disease. Now I can share it some more.
