A Simple Way to Explain What is Diabetes

I stumbled upon this explanation of diabetes management on Scott Hanselman's blog where he uses the airplane analogy. I thought it would be pretty helpful for people trying to understand the delicate balance of testing, eating, retesting, dosing insulin and testing again.

Scott has type 1 diabetes and is a Senior Program Manager at Microsoft, so it's understandable that he'd come up with a way to explain it quite thoroughly.

If you still don't get it, maybe this image I whipped up might help...

I've always thought Scott's airplane analogy was probably the best analogy for what diabetes is all about.

He rocks!
