This is a lazy, mis-informed bit of I run on coffee and Insulin shirt. Let the world rejoice that there are only 400 people worldwide with T2 diabetes – if only! And It’s T1’s that inject BEFORE food. We are fighting daily ignorance of this crippling disease and you, mr science editor, are in the wrong job. You are a special kind of ignorant.
It would be better if the headline specified that this is for type 2 onlyI run on coffee and Insulin shirt. Also the picture of the blood test is unhelpful – people who know what they are doing do not prick fingertips – they are sensitive and it hurts more – side of the finger is the usual spot – still sore but not as much. Also – as is often the case – many of the comments raise more pertinent and thoughtful questions about this than the article.
