Do you have diabetes I or II? Do you have your sugar level under control?
Although my grandfather was diabetic, my mother and her brother are diabetic, I have thusfar been able to evade the family curse.
Diabetes Type Ii with a dash of high cholesterol, so triglycerides come into play. Is my glucose levels under control - being investigated, with a broad brush - kinda'
I am a Type 2 diabetic. I was diagnosed about 8 years ago and the biggest impact it had was to make me a healthier person. I dropped 30 pounds in a relatively short amount of time (have gained 10 back) but that help to lower my blood pressure and cholesterol. I never had to take any medication or insulin for my diabetes. My wife and I went to a diabetic class at the local hospital and learned how to count carbs. We can both look at a plate and know how many carbs servings are on it. The other big impact, is that I cannot buy decent health insurance because I am considered at high risk. I asked if some guy was 25 and had unprotected sex with a prostitute every weekend would be covered and they said probably. I promised them that guy was at a higher risk of getting sicker than me. They did not buy my argument. I think I am going to have my doctor run the glucose tolerance test again. I many have only been borderline and may now be on the healthy side of the border.
