Good to see this in the paper.
We who have it spend so much time trying to explain it to other people!

This is not helped by DUK. In the magazine Balance, Norman Smith, the comedian, had a severe alcoholic acute pancreatitis, destroying most of his pancreas. Despite being on Insulin, he self describes as Type 2 in his regular column. I suppose that Diabetes UK think that this is a nice contrast with their other celebrity columnist, Marie Wilson, the singer, who is Type 1.

I remember thinking, before I ever knew I had CP, or I knew anything about 3c, how can he be Type 2?

I know I’m a reverse engineered 3c, but it does cause particular problems beyond Type 1, and Diabetes UK are remiss in not highlighting this.

Alan went to see the Diabetic nurse at the local clinic for his annual check and she looked at us as if we were daft when we said he had Type 3C.

“There’s only Type 1 and Type 2’ she said authoritatively.

I couldn’t be bothered to argue but it didn’t fill me with much faith in her skill set :roll: :roll: .


Jane 😘
