To all non diabetics.........If you eat like you are a diabetic, you probably won't become one! Think about it. Get tested soon for your own health.
Edith,He answered your question. The side information was there when you commented. Sorry you missed it. No one added it later.
We do sometimes have additional information post later in the day after a story appears first. That was not the case here because the entire package posted late Saturday night. Of course, everything appeared in print Sunday, too.
I think that covers all of the questions regarding the posting of this excellent story by J.R. Look next week for Part 2.
Thanks for reading.
That's not what I meant. I am sure it was not there when I read the story, or I would not have requested that you add it.
(between you and me--are you guys instructed to not answer the questions when you respond on the forum to a comment? It would almost be better if you just ignored the question.)
They usually post the story once it's edited and then all the other components. On this page, it should be the second breakout that talks about Type I and II. Of course, the second part of my series will go more in-depth.
J. R. , from the first posting of this story ALL of the breakouts were online? I only recall 2, maybe 3 of them, and none about the differences. You added to the online ones, right?
Oops. I forgot to mention the breakout on the difference is on the side of this story online.
Great point! It's difficult when writing a feature story to strike a balance of having great information and keeping the character of the feature strong. The only way I could figure it out was to breakout what you have just asked for. In the print story, there is a breakout with the difference between Type 1, Type II and Gestational Diabetes.
I will be sure to touch on that a bit more in next week's story about the pre-diabetic.
As the mother of a Type I diabetic, I am always pleased to see diabetes awareness out there. Thanks for the story as it shows that diabetes for kids does not have to be limiting. It does a tremendous service to give this postive message.
However--I am always disappointed then the stories do not detail the difference between a Type I diabetic (insulin dependent) like Alyssa or my son, and a Type II diabetic (insulin resistant). They are very similar and there is clearly an increase in Type II diabetes among children, but they are treated somewhat differently.
J. R., so that folks have a better understanding of the two, would it be possible for you to include more information on the differences between Type I and Type II in conjunction with your next article? You would be providing a huge service to the readers. Thank you.
