There is Type 1 and Type 2 -- Those that rely on injecting insulin and others that take medication to help their glucose at a certain level for their blood sugar. It is a struggling disease. I've known people that have had it those with either types. The issues with those that can go blind, lose their feet or even get into a coma. I used to help a person that had type 1 and seen the sufferings of that person. How about yourself? Do you have it or know others that do have it?

My father has type 2 diabetes and takes medication everyday. He has been diagnoseed 10 years ago. My father is 80 years old and he is loosing his sight. Two of my uncles and one aunt had type 2 diabetes. I have known someone in my high school who had type 1 diabetes, he was so skinny. It's sad and I hope they will find a cure for it soon.

I help people to prevent and handle diabetes without or almost without medications. More so, I help people that already have problems with their feet to get better. I once thought that medications are the best answer to chronic diseases. That was until I studied about it in the unicersity... I looked for something different, and found it. Now I just apply what tools I have to help others. My chronic problems have been solved, and I know how anyone I help feels after his problems are solved or at least get better. I don't have diabetes, but it has become a real plague nowdays. Luckily, there are many ways to live well with it.

The disease that crippled one of my uncles on the father side and made one of my aunt blind.I hope it does not reach our generation but Im afraid its already with our blood. I am careful and eat ampalaya a lot so that it could not reach on levels that I would not expect it to be.
