- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My five year old son has diabetes. I was explaining to him the difference between type 1 and type 2. I told him that those who have type 2 do not always need insulin shots but can instead eat healthy and exercise. Now whenever he goes out to ride his bike he tells me how he wishes that he had type 2 because he would just ride his bike all day until his diabetes went away.
