I put a poster board on Signs and Symtoms on diabetes in my MD's office for the week of November 14th for World Wide Diabetes Day. My Md informed me he was never asked by so many patients that they wanted checked for diabetes. He said he was amazed on how many wanted check. Well he called me this am and told me 5 people so far have diabetes and now getting the proper treatment. My goal was to help 1 person. I went over and beyond my expectations. I was hoping I'd would of helped someone that probably would of never been check. (By the way these people never told the MD they were ever experiencing these symtoms). I proved a point…Debe

That just proves something that we all know to be true. Many many people are walking around with diabetes who have no idea they have it and who have never experienced symptoms. I never had symptoms either. Fortuntely it was caught and dealt with long ago through a routine checkups. Good work!
