While casually reading SELF magazine today, I came across a very comprehensive article about diabetes. More specifically, it was about the scary trend that has teen girls skipping their insulin doses to lose weight. The author of the article did a great job explaining exactly how type 1 diabetes affects us young women, and covered all the aspects and consequences of not taking your insulin! I highly recommend reading this even if you do not have any such problems. It is something we should all be aware of in the "diabetes community," and I would like to know what others think about the subject. Here's the link.
