According to a nationwide survey, nearly eighty percent of Americans don’t know the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Half of America doesn’t even know that two forms of diabetes exist.

Generally, Type 1 Diabetics are diagnosed at a young age, however, I have read about instances when that is not necessarily true. There are some instances when an adult is diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes! There is a special test to determine whether the person has Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes.

It can not determine which Type of Diabetes you have!
Nor have seen each other's faces.
We may not know each other's needs,
But together we can raise them.
With temptation, guilt, or pain.
We may be wrestling with a choice,
A decision, or a change.
Let us lift each other up.
Let us pray for one another
In the love that Christ has taught.
For all He gives and does.
Let us recognize His faithfulness
And praise Him with our love.
