I would give my right ARM to be T2 rather than T1. T1 your pancreas does NOT work. With type 2, it may work 30% or 90%. Someone who is 20 stone, their pancreas is surrounded by fat & this reduces efficacy! Some people can do something about this but unfortunately type1 diabetics can not. I have a very good mate who is OFF all meds for his type2. If you don't want to loose mobility don't sit down too long.
