This article about a T1 girls death is very upsetting. For MANY reasons.... "DID NOT TAKE CARE OF HERSELF" CLICK TO READ THE STORY
So what exactly do people mean when they say someone with Diabetes "didnt take care of themselves" ???? This poor girl was dx'd with Diabetes at a TERRIBLE age for change...age 13. She died at age 26.....Diabetes complications killed her after 13 years? She didnt take care of herself? Meaning what? Was she a terrible carb counter?She ate Cheetos every day? She never brushed her teeth? Never went to the doctor? Didnt TRY to manage her disease? Was she DEPRESSED? She forgot to take her shots? She chose NPH as her treatment instead of newer insulins? What does "did not take care of herself" mean exactly?
She didnt work out every day? She had "brittle" Diabetes and couldn't avoid extremes? She ate french fries? Ice cream? She laid around all day and smoked cigerettes? Did she do drugs? What exactly does her mother mean when she says her daughter didnt take care of herself??!! PLEASE DO EXPLAIN!!
