We need everyone, all levels of government, to actually work together to help us work together better too and recognize that even though.... You have three people here who are all living with diabetes, but we're all different people and our diabetes impacts us differently. Even though we have the exact same condition, our lives are impacted differently by it.
We make different choices. We have different hormones, and that's the thing. Even the doctors don't always grasp it. Insulin is a hormone that your body normally produces. When you have something else going on, that hormone imbalance impacts your diabetes, and I've had to tell doctors that. There are gaps in education.
I brought that up with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario at a meeting at the beginning of the month. I was fortunate enough to be invited to that. I'm always bringing up where I'm able that there needs to be more education. Nurses get maybe a day if we're lucky. Not enough time is spent on education. There are researchers out there. Why aren't they being embraced, and used and taught. Let's put the shame away.
