London, Most people believe the myth
about diabetes, for example a lot of eating
sweet foods are triggers. Assumptions were
then trigger discriminatory behavior.
Quoted from the Telegraph on Monday
(7/14/2010), there are a number of
discriminatory behavior that often appears
associated diseases of diabetes. Override
the behavior of small children with diabetes,
as well as adults who must inject insulin in
public places.
In a survey of 2000 adults in England,
revealed that 42 percent of respondents
considered that too much sugar
consumption is a cause of diabetes. The
survey was held by a charity, Diabetes UK
welcomed the Diabetes Week 2010.
The presumption is deemed to have caused a
small child with diabetes often experience
intimidation from peers who believed in him.
As if the illness is the result of bad habits,
such as eating lots of candy.
Yet according to one NGO activist, Simon
O'Neill, who experienced a child with diabetes
type 1 is unrelated to the diet. Generally, a
genetic disorder, so that has nothing to do
with sweet eating habits.
While diabetes is triggered by diet and
lifestyle is of type 2 diabetes, which are
commonly experienced by adults. In this
type, obesity can also be a risk factor.
Other discriminatory behavior befall diabetics
who must inject insulin in public places. The
group often gets ribbing and even shunned
for being different.
"People who have to inject insulin have no
choice. Insulin keeps them alive, so it must
be injected at certain times," said O'Neill.
The opinion was delivered by the related
assumption that people with diebetes should
not be driving and can not exercise. There's
even a small portion who think diabetes is a
disease transmitted.
