I couldn't wait until 7:0. SO I went on the PBS website, found the broadcast. I'm angry (yeah, again) TO have someone touted as the head of a major diabetes center. Basically, he barely mentioned type 1 - ascribing it to children. The rest of the conversation was type 2 - although he rarely said "type 2Z" He, in my mind, lumped all diabetes together, and said (essentially) that overweight = diabetes.
One of biggest peeves is that the genetic propensity that has to be there for type 2 wasn't mentioned. This is the kind of report that COULD cause someone to think about their family medical history and get checked - catch things early. And let's not forget the Peter Pan syndrome - that is for those of us who got type 1 as adults.
So do I send him an email?
