I couldn’t help but notice how most everyone keeps on blaming pancreas on the havoc it wreaked that results in diabetes. Lazy pancreas, cranky pancreas, misbehaving and more. Some folk are texting it.
However the real culprit is the immune system that does a number on it. The poor pancreas is actually a victim.
Both T1D and T2D are autoimmune. In T1D, the immune system has launched an attack on pancreas who just shut down its insulin production department. In T2D, insulin couldn’t perform any longer to get the darn glucose out the bloodstream and into the cells.
The end result is of course me having diabetes. Now that I have no other choice as to deal with it, I am trying to learn all I can about it, research, be proactive, blog on WordPress and track down my progress.
This is to make a long story short.
