“type 2, which is caused by an unhealthy diet”.

Ah yes, there it is. Us Type 2’s “brought it on ourselves”.

Except I know Type 2’s who are otherwise in the peak of health, and were, and remain, athletes. And suddenly, their sugars went crazy. . .

That's what I've been told by several physicians who've treated me.Their statements have been backed up by the fact that once,when I lost a lot of weight and got down to a point close to my "normal" weight my doctors took me off the diabetes med I was on as well as all but one of my blood pressure meds.The internist told me that this was common for overweight folks who succeed in losing a lot of weight.But he didn't say it was *universally* true for Type 2.

The article says it “can” be caused by an unhealthy diet, which is true
