However, someone on my friends list decided it was time to play weight-loss expert and told me helpfully (not) that bariatric surgery has been proven to cure diabetes and that I should consider it.
Honestly? Weight-loss surgery? Never mind that the studies about bariatric surgery were for people with Type 2 diabetes, which shows that no matter how many times I post in my LJ that I have Type 1, people still don't listen. But recommending weight-loss surgery just because I want to lose about 20 kilograms at the most? I actually considered reporting that LJ "friend" for spam because I was convinced someone had hacked his account, because his suggestion was so far out of left field.
