Berry Enrages Medics With 'Confusing' Diabetes Claims
Pregnant HALLE BERRY has angered diabetes experts, after claiming she had succeeded in downgrading the severity of her disease with a healthy diet. The actress was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes early on in her Hollywood career, but recently (Oct07) alleged that she has reclassified herself as a Type 2 diabetic simply through good living. But medical experts are enraged with her claims and have accused her of "confusing" fellow diabetics with her comments. A diabetes specialist tells PerezHilton.com, "If you come off insulin, then you were always a Type 2. She is feeding into all the confusion in the world." People diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes cannot reverse their condition because their pancreas is destroyed, whereas Type 2 sufferers still internally produce some insulin.
