I started this website to share some of my personal experiences with Type 2 diabetes. Often referred to as the silent killer, it affects 422 million people worldwide (2016 data from the World Health Organization). In the United States alone there are over 29 million people or 9.3% of the populated are afflicted (as of 2014). The worldwide figure is even more staggering – 422 million (as of 2016 according to the World Health Organization). There are numerous data available on the internet, but I wanted to create a site where I could share and interact with others afflicted by the disease. If controlled and managed, diabetics lead a normal life.
I am of the millions of people diagnosed with this disease. With early diagnosis, I was able to control and manage my diabetes and slowed its progression. There are numerous data available, including the internet. Many are very technical and too general. I wanted to create a site where I could share and interact with others afflicted by the disease.
Whether you are a diabetic or know someone who is, I invite you to join my site. Many out there share the same issues with managing their diabetes. It has been a struggle going through the different stages of the disease, from pre-diabetes to border-line diabetic and then being considered a diabetic.
While many sites discuss the disease, I find that none of them delved deep enough to the individual level. My experience. Your experience. My reactions to various medications and lifestyles. Your reactions to various medicationsand lifestyles.
Let us join hands and share information. I invite you to read my blogs and write comments and share your own experiences. I invite all to connect so we could all learn from each other.
