This is a tsunami that we need to desperately deal with. At the reate we are going we will bankrupt the health care system with the care of diabetics. We are starting to make headway with overweight children who are being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. We simply must exercise more and eat better and less. I read a study today which said that 50% of people with a chronic disease get no exercise. That is really a tragedy. But that was basically me before I was diagnosed with diabetes. I got no exercise except what was involved with working. It is not the case anymore!

It's great that you changed your lifestyle and now are exercising, plus you're setting a positive example for others that it's truly possible to make changes. ~Lynn @Glucerna

0/10 diabetes are a lie made up by government social workers that are trying to convince society that McDonald's isn't the way to enter nirvana.

Shame on you.
