The ‘Catwoman’ actress was earlier diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes but recently she alleged that she had reclassified herself as a Type 2 diabetic simply through good living.

A diabetes specialist told PerezHilton.com that the 41-year old actress had enraged medical experts with her claims and also accused her of ‘confusing’ fellow diabetics with her comments

“If you come off insulin, then you were always a Type 2. She is feeding into all the confusion in the world,” Contactmusic quoted the specialist, as telling the website.

The expert added that people diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes cannot reverse their condition because their pancreas is destroyed, whereas Type 2 sufferers still internally produce some insulin. (ANI)
