Did you know that Teasing can be Life threatening to someone with Diabetes?
About 1 in 3 kids and teens with problems like diabetes have had to deal with bullying.
If a kid hides their diabetes - by not testing while at school they can easily run into problems with their glucose levels just by not being able to manage them quickly enough.
What can you do? Any group of kids can face down a bully - if someone makes a nasty comment about diabetes make sure that you (and your friends) let them know it is not OK, tell an adult, stick around while your friend tests and don't make a big deal of it.
If you are the one who is being teased What can you do? Get your friends' help to remind people that diabetes is no big deal. Ignoring a bully is a good strategy too. Bullies thrive on the reaction they get, and if you walk away, you're telling the bully that you just don't care. Sooner or later the bully will probably get bored with trying to bother you.

But also, we need to spread knowledge to those who don't understand the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. While they are similar in how they affect someone, they are brought on in completely different ways; Type 1 is more often genetically passed and is not curable/preventable, while Type 2 is what people think of when they hear the word "diabetes" and is curable and nearly 100% preventable. So lets band together and spread awareness and knowledge!
