Man’s Diabetes Resolves Arguments

LONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Anyone having trouble deciding where to eat or what movie to see can let one man’s diabetes solve their dilemma.

21-year-old web developer Nial Giacomelli suffers from Type 1 Diabetes, but that works to other people’s favor thanks to his website Diabetting.net, where people can place bets on what his blood sugar level will be three times a day.

Giacomelli says the diabetes wager can be used by people who want to settle small arguments amongst themselves.

The winner of the bet can decide on things like who should go on the office lunch run.

While it’s good for settling smaller matters, Giacomelli would like to see Diabetting used by world leaders to settle arguments and bring about world peace.

However, he admits that’s a “pretty lofty ambition.”

Through the website, Giacomelli is forced to be more responsible about treating his Diabetes and monitoring his sugar levels, so he gains just as much from it as users do.
