I just came across this news article that makes me a little bit furious. A study was conducted to determine whether or not inactive type 1 diabetics had worse control than their active counterparts.
I’m not kidding. Here’s the link: http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/10/05/us-kids-who-watch-more-tv-idUSTRE79455A20111005
This angers me generally as a diabetic, and also as one who works for an organization trying to achieve a cure ( the Juvenile Diabetes Cure Alliance). There’s a ton of money in the system for beneficial research, and it’s a shame that any would go to something like this ( though the article doesn’t go into funding specifics).
Honestly, I’m pretty sure that common sense and five minutes thought could’ve produced the same educated conclusion that those who are less active will have worse H1C’s.
