General Diabetes Infographic

Before getting diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, my knowledge of the disease was quite limited. I quickly realized, I am not alone. Most of the population of the United States doesn't understand what diabetes is and how many types/forms there are. (2 principle types, and 6 other forms, BTW). A typical response I receive after telling people I have T1D is, "Oh, but you aren't even out of shape." They automatically think of the most popular type of diabetes: Type 2, which is quite different from Type 1. Check out the infographic I made compared Type 1 and Type 2 here

In the meantime, check out this general diabetes infographic I created below. 
The numbers are staggering.
