While personally its really irritating if people think I’m Type 2, politically it works far better to lump the two together. Type 2 is a massive financial burden (hence why Teloz gets a bit nervous when ShootUp starts brainstorming about how much a cull could save!) and its growing enormously. Type 1 is miniscule in comparison. Diabetes is higher up the Govt agenda than it ever has been thanks to the ever increasing cost of T2. We T1’s benefit from that by sneaking in under the general diabetes umbrella and then once we’re at the table, making sure our minority needs are catered for. I see T2 as the battering ram that opens the doors of power for us little T1s.
