Warning! Red Alert! Diabetes Ahead!

BlogHer Original Post

Do you have diabetes? No? Are you sure? Have you been tested? Are you aware that you can have diabetes and not know it? Did you know that 6.2 million Americans have diabetes right now and do not know it. Are you really sure you don't have diabetes?

Tuesday, March 28, is the ADA Diabetes Alert calling for increased awareness and action. Take the Risk Test. Talk to your doctor about any risk factors or symptoms of diabetes you may have. And, it goes without saying, you should take some time to visit some women blogging about Type 2 Diabetes.

I feel isolated from other people my age at times. Dealing with type 2 diabetes at age 29 does that. Dealing with hypothyroidism does that. This year has been a time of self re-evaluation - just when I thought I was on track with my life, I got the double whammy diagnoses and everything changed.

At Jo's Cafe we find out that surfing the web and finding great information doesn't always cover the emotional issues.

In December 2004 I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. After going through the internet and reading everything I could get my hands on, I was still having problems - mostly emotional.

Are you sure you don't have diabetes?
