  1. Why can’t you just call it high glucose levels instead of high blood sugar, as a type 2 I’m tired of people telling me to cut back on the sugar and have no idea it’s carb intake because when u call it sugar diabetes they assume you sit around all day eating candy , ice cream and donuts and u have a addiction instead of a medical condition
