    During my recent hospitalization my numbers were a little bit above average so I oh so hope I'm not becoming diabetic because right now i have more than enough health issues to deal with at the present time.

    Hello! I just got diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, but I am going to get a second opinion. My doctor didn't verbally tell me, but I had to find out straight from online. Also, I don't believe the same thing when some people say that things that are hereditary happen similar in the same way as your parents once it is passed down. Another thing is that I don't believe it is because my current primary doctor stated that it is only because of my weight. I know that this isn't the only way a person contracts diabetes. I love your videos in the way that there so specific and detailed with thorough instruction.
