  •  It is far more complicated - many who get type 2 (7+ / 0-)

    Diabetes have had perfectly healthy lifestyles. Yes there is a link between inactivity and obesity and type 2 diabetes but it is far from the only factor, genetics plays a very large role as do other factors, further even if onset is more premature than it might otherwise be due to obesity and inactivity that is by no means in every case a lifestyle choice.

    Re type 2 Olympians the first that comes to mind is Steve Redgrave who won a 5th gold medal in Sydney after having developed it.

    Now as for the diarist's daughter of course I have every sympathy and it's a scandal that getting the medication and care she needs is as difficult as it is, but then I am a firm believer in universal healthcare and think that if things were as they should be money would never be a factor in medical desicions.

    hope springs eternal
