Welcome! I’m glad you are here! I’m assuming that you are here because you either 1) have diabetes, 2) know someone who has the disease (and you’re helping them find info about it), and/or 3) are interested in preventing and fighting this thing as naturally as you can.
That’s what brought me on this journey to begin with. My dad has Type 2 diabetes, and actually has been taking oral medication for it for at least 10-15 years (maybe even longer for all I know).
I just remember that one day I was visiting him and all or a sudden I saw all this “stuff” in the hallway bathroom. Charts, little “finger” blood test equipment, etc. I asked him how long he had been doing that, and he said, “Oh a while now… It runs in the family.”
For some reason, though, he just won’t change his lifestyle. Well… that’s not entirely true. A year ago he had a stroke on top of the diabetes, and he did change a few things. BUT, he still won’t exercise as much as he should, and he still won’t change his diet much.
So, knowing that I have a few things of my own to change, I’m going to do just that. And, I’ll share some of what I learn here at this site.
Please stay tuned, and thank you so much for stopping by!
