Potential Secondary Conditions Resulting From Diabetes

Potential Secondary Conditions Resulting From Diabetes

Good Day All,

Saw a similar question and answer about 3 months ago. Thought I'd revisit the the question again. I'm still young (turning 30 this year). I am extremely active (running ultra's), not overweight and follow a basic but healthy diet. Been Diabetic (type 2) for 5 years now and it appears that during this time, new conditions keep on manifesting. Would like to find out from members if they maybe experienced similar secondary conditions as below:

Am I Too Harsh And Lack Compassion?

Am I Too Harsh And Lack Compassion?

Most who read my posts become very aware that I don't tend to sugar coat anything.

Maybe that is because I have been dealing with Diabetes my entire life. My Parents, Grandparents, Great-Grandparents, Uncles/Aunts and cousins all have/had diabetes, at least the overwhelming majority of them, so if you are a "normal" member of the family, you likewise have Diabetes.

Did A Diabetes Diagnosis SAVE Our Lives?

Did A Diabetes Diagnosis SAVE Our Lives?

As soon as I left home my (diet) start deteriorating.

Fast Food, high carb, sugar sweetened, and I couldn’t even spell calories much less count them.

I ate when/what I wanted, no breakfast, crap for lunch, and overate at supper.

Evenings were time for “wolfing the real crap”.

I got married and started a family and started eating meals in a more structured fashion but I also worked shift work so many “meals” were a couple of donuts, a bag of chips and lots of Coke.

Hey, I was young, fit… read more
