Like it or not, some “authority figures” in the medical space get diabetes, especially type 1 diabetes, wrong.

Whether it’s a doctor, nurse, nutritionist, dietitian, professor, or someone in your family, it’s important to know not only how to recognize when they’re wrong, but also how to stand up for the truth when they do.

Just because someone has a degree doesn’t mean they have all the answers.

Now It's Your Turn...

Have you experienced an authority figure getting T1D wrong? If so, how did you respond or react? What advice do you have for others in the same situation? We’d love to hear your experiences.
