Type1 diabetes can consider themselves "diabetic".Patients with type 2 diabetes are not "diabetic", they should work to get rid of it. Agree or not?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Genetic contribution

there is great genetic contribution to type 1 than type 2 diabetes.
of course people should work to manage type 2 diabetes, but it is not just a disease because of lifestyle.

To some extent we are on the same page but I still prefer to aim for complete control of diabetes in adults with type 2.
