Pancreatic Auto Immune Disorder (P.A.I.D.)
I have been steamed all weekend over the latest "surveys" of medical organizations about the epidemic of Diabetes. My mind has been going over the possible names for MY "diabetes" and how frustrated I am about always being lumped in with Non Insulin dependent Diabetes.
My suggestion for the name of Type I Diabetes is Pancreatic Auto Immune Disorder (P.A.I.D.)
How do we get the name changed to better reflect the actual disease and make the steam stop coming out of my ears every time I am told to eat less and exercise more so that I can "cure" myself???
CLARIFICATION: This is the source of my latest bout with anger at the educational efforts of the diabetes community.
This is not education. These are bits of info about some of the disease sometimes known as diabetes. (or some such rubbish)
