Famous Diabetics - I am Diabetic therefore I can do anything

Updated on September 3, 2012

I can do anything

There are some interesting connotations about being a diabetic.

There are some that believe it is a chronic illness with need for special consideration. This is of course the glass half empty view.

Others with the glass half full view will argue that diabetics can do anything and they arent wrong.

Dont believe me?

Well here are some famous diabetics that may help prove my point

      Good variety in your list. I like you included diabetics of various ages, from young to old. My favorite famous person is Mary Tyler Moore, she seems to be very honest and upfront about her diabetes and living with diabetes.
