Diabetes Came as A Surprise to Me
I was 30 years old when I was diagnosed. My mom has diabetes. I knew nothing about it. I had a medical emergency and the paramedics told me I had diabetes. My sugar was over 300. I followed up with my doctor and sure enough I had Type 2 diabetes. I did not have the warning signs of being thirsty or going to the bathroom frequently. Luckily, the diabetes did not permanently damage any of my organs. I'm on oral medication now, test my blood daily, exercise, and have modified my eating habits. My advice to anyone who doesn't think they have it, is to get tested. I make my spouse test their blood with my meter once a week. It could save your life.
