Just like in the movie, today we’re doing a swap. If you could switch chronic diseases, which one would you choose to deal with instead of diabetes? And while we’re considering other chronic conditions, do you think your participation in the DOC has affected how you treat friends and acquaintances with other medical conditions? (Thanks to Jane of Jane K. Dickinson, RN, PhD, CDE and Bob of T Minus Two for this topic suggestion.)
I was recently talking with a friend of mine about this! If I had to choose from all the endocrine conditions known today, I think I’d pick a low thyroid.
Once diagnosed, it seems like a relatively easy problem to fix! I actually DO have low thyroid (it’s common for our kind – did you know that?). I get lab tests periodically, and I take a cheap pill each morning to fix it.
I totally stole this answer from Wil. He mentioned something similar while we were together at AACE in Phoenix recently.
