Diabetes has a wing

This is just a short follow-up post to “show” you the importance of Diabetes testing.

Remember when I told you about my son getting diagnosed last year; and that as a young adult he is in the “honeymoon phase” between Type 1 and Type 2? See my post this week; “Diabetes doesn’t have to slow you down” – Alert Day – Get Tested! I thought about it strongly and decided I should have my son go back to the doctor this month for a follow-up (even though he wasn’t due until June); for the past few months he has just been on Januvia, we stopped the Metformin because he was losing so much weight. Since he was so depressed, the doctor let him cheat some and STILL his sugar levels have NEVER gone over 110 (should not go over 140)… so, I made an appointment and we got the lab work done and went to see the doctor this morning.

“Diabetes doesn’t have to slow you down” – Alert Day – Get Tested!

Today, March 22nd is Diabetes Alert Day; I want to support the ADA in spreading the word… it is a one-day “wake-up” call asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes. You can take the Diabetes Risk Test now!
I am especially worried about young adults and teens – the YOUNG American public, who may not visit their doctor too often; or they are away from home at college or for whatever reason doesn’t think they are “old enough” to have Diabetes. In the minds of some young people, they associate all illnesses with “getting older” or “not taking care of yourself”. Diabetes has no label at all; you can be any age, race or religion. However, race, age, your weight and family history “can” determine whether you are at risk. I am posting this blog, in honor of my son, who was diagnosed with Diabetes this year.
It is important to take the test, and I will tell you why… Continue reading “Diabetes doesn’t have to slow you down” – Alert Day – Get Tested!
