Diabetes Awareness: Family Of Diabetics
Thousands, if not millions of people have diabetes in their family. It's almost tragic the way things happen because it's not always a "common knowledge" among families.
I tell you, it's not until it hits you that it's really awful.
Asking questions can help you and your family dodge the serious complications of diabetes. Early detection and active control of blood sugar levels can save lives.
Have you ever heard anyone ask:
Do you have diabetes? Does anyone in your family have diabetes? Is your vision okay or is it blurry? Are your feet feeling okay today?
A lot of people get diabetes, but you know, early detection and taking action can save your life or the life of a family member.
Ask your doctor about diabetes and have your blood sugar checked several times a year.
