This Video Shows What A Type 1 Diabetic Has To Face Every Day

Type 1 diabetes afflicts about 10 percent of all people who suffer from diabetes. Usually diagnosed in children and young adults, it is also known as juvenile diabetes or early onset diabetes. However, the rules for this are changing as more and more adults are being diagnosed with type 1, even though they still make up a minority portion of the population.

This humorous video by Insulin Nation poses the question, “what if the majority of people had type 1 diabetes?”

The video depicts an alternate universe where people with type 1 diabetes are in the majority and those with properly functioning pancreases are rare. It highlights the difficulties, misconceptions, and inconveniences that people with type 1 diabetes face in their day-to-day lives. It offers some pretty great examples of the ridiculous questions and statements people might encounter (typically the same ones people with type 1 are faced with regularly).
