I was just reading something from the ADA website, an article on Type 2’s.
And it made it seem like to me that getting Type 2 is our fault.
"Type 2 diabetes has a stronger link to family history and lineage than type 1, and studies of twins have shown that genetics play a very strong role in the development of type 2 diabetes. Race can also play a role.
Yet it also depends on environmental factors. Lifestyle also influences the development of type 2 diabetes. Obesity tends to run in families, and families often have similar eating and exercise habits.
If you have a family history of type 2 diabetes, it may be difficult to figure out whether your diabetes is due to lifestyle factors or genetics. Most likely it is due to both. However, don’t lose heart! Studies show that it is possible to delay or prevent type 2 diabetes by exercising and losing weight. Learn how you can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes."
( Your Children’s Risk):
“Type 2 diabetes runs in families. In part, this is due to children learning bad habits—eating a poor diet, not exercising—from their parents. But there is also a genetic basis.”
I have a long family history of Type 2.
MOMS: My Mother, her sister, Brother (type 1), Their Father, cousin ( In remission), and 2 Great Aunts
So out of 6 kids on moms side 3 out of 6 are diabetic!
DADS SIDE : My Grandma
I know 2 people at our church ( husband and wife) that are as skinny as can be, they’re in their 80s and are type 2 diabetics.
Is it true? being cursed with Type 2 is our fault because we were Fat A**es who ate wrong and didn’t put in as much effort to exercise?
Sorry for the curse word, thats just how I feel about the article. To me it’s just how I took reading the information. As it’s your fault you got yourself in this predicament.
