  • What’s type 1 Diabetes Dr. D?

  • Is there a way that I can get Insulin?
  • Can I get rid of it?

  • I can give you Insulin shots for when you need Insulin.
  • What is type 2 Diabetes?
  • Your dad can get rid of his type 2 Diabetes by exercising and dieting. If he gets fit then he can get rid of his Diabetes.
