My father had Diabetes and in his memory,  I chose this blog https://kikisbetes.com/ as the Featured Blogger of the Week for February 22, 2019.You can also follow on Twitter: https://twitter.com/kikisbetes and Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/kiks416/.

Dad took three shots of insulin a day. I don’t know when he was first diagnosed with Diabetes as he didn’t talk about it much. Dad wasn’t the only diabetic I knew. Some co-workers, I believe both of my grandfathers, a half-uncle by marriage, and several friends have Diabetes.

Here is a good post on Top 5 Diabetic Myths: https://kikisbetes.com/2015/01/14/the-top-5-diabetic-myths/.

The odds are pretty high that you know somebody who has Diabetes. In the U. S., a study in early 2017 showed that 9.4% of Americans have Diabetes with more than a third of Americans having pre-Diabetes. It is worth checking out the blog and also having blood work done, especially if you have a family history of Diabetes. There are things you can do to take care of yourself that apply even if you don’t have Diabetes or pre-Diabetes. Those things won’t necessarily stop you from getting Diabetes, but they will help if you do develop Diabetes.
