Default Two Type 1s died last week

Quite a bummer and a reminder that Diabetes - whether it be Type 1 or Type 2 can kill you. Last week my co-worker's nephew (37 years old) died of a hypo. Didn't know him but his story was very sad. Than last Friday I was talking to a guy who had just retired - a 54 year old Type 1 diabetic and I found out yesterday that he died on the weekend from a massive heart attack.

Certainly a reminder that diabetes should not be taken lightly!

One of my co-workers, a Type 1, died of a heart attack. True, he did not take care of himself, but he was only in his mid-40's.
