Oct 28, 2014 | 
A new study suggests that type 2 diabetics who want to avoid heart attacks or strokes should rigorously control their blood pressure. Doing so for an extended period of time seems to pay off years later.

What Type 2s Can Do When Blood Sugar Soars
Jul 16, 2014 | 
The emergency condition most type 2s dread is hypoglycemia, where plummeting blood sugar levels can bring on a dangerous semi-conscious state, and even coma or death.
The Invisible Elephant in the Room
Jul 15, 2014 | 
Diabetes is the invisible elephant in my room on a regular basis. As a type 1 diabetic, I think about it frequently even if my friends, family, doctors, and the people I encounter daily don’t see it. While diabetes truly is an invisible illness, my blood sugars affect everything I do or even think about doing. My diabetes elephant is there all the time. That elephant does not take days off or breaks. So when such an important medical issue goes unnoticed by a doctor after a lengthy visit, I see a red flag.
Health Awareness vs Weight Conscious
Jun 18, 2014 | 
There's a lot of focus on weight loss as of late; not only in the diabetic community, but in the world in general. New ads for gyms and products claiming fast weight loss come out daily, women feel pressured to lose pregnancy weight within minutes from birthing their children, thin models are being airbrushed until they are nearly unrecognizable and diets are being undertaken without people understanding how/why/if it's really going to be effective. Some of my own friends are chronically doing near-starvation diets to shed weight. People seem to be focused on getting the fat off, but unless long term habits are improved, it's not going to stay off. It's great to fight the obesity epidemic, but we can't allow ourselves to go to the other extreme. Carrying excess weight isn't a good thing, but I think we're losing focus on the importance of health versus aesthetics.
Diabetes and Family Bonds
Jun 4, 2014 | 
Diabetes is a disease that has affected my family and me even before I was born. This chronic ailment has put my family through some scary times. Times that no one should have to face. Diseases like these affect far too many people of all ages. Seeing a loved one suffer and feeling completely helpless by not being able to take their pain away is the most disheartening experience anyone can go through. Sadly, this is a feeling I know all too well.
8 Heath Tests That Are a Must
May 19, 2014 | 
As diabetics, it's easy for all of us to get caught up in the day-to-day management of our disease. After all, the regular monitoring of blood sugar, the injection or pumping of insulin, and the management of diet takes serious time and effort. So no wonder why you may feel overwhelmed when it comes to taking regular tests.
