    Diagnosis so Quick

    I had a routine blood test that I thought was just for platelet count. Instead it turned out to also include a random blood glucose test. Unfortunately I didn't know that and had a 3 piece KFC meal, fruit punch and honey biscuits on the run literally just before drawing blood. My test showed a 219 glucose. My doctor was quick to say I now have diabetes and need medication. A few days later I re-ran the test, fasted for several hours and got a 101 result. I also took the A1C test and it was 5....

    What Do You Do To "Fight" Diabetes?

    In order to beat Type 2 Diabetes, you have to "fight" to improve your health. What stands in the way of most people, newly diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, is themselves. They refuse to look for simple ways to make improvements in their health. They think, "I'll just let my doctor tell me what to do." There's two problems with this line of thinking: 1. They don't follow anyone's advice, let alone, their doctor's, and 2. Their doctor only see's them for 15....
