We all go to the doc and fill out a ton of paper work.

When you get to the family history part of disease's do you mark them. When I was younger and going through a monoteny of issues with my health…I asked my mother, do we have this disease and she would say NO leave it…They dont need to know…

THAT WAS A BIG MISTAKE!!! I find out 20 years later…SHE KNEW…it disappointed me for a very long time…Im over it now…

If my daughter and I go to the doctor..I tell them my family history…

It so greatly helps them, figure out a way to fix a symptom before it starts…

What Im asking…if you dont know your family history plz find out…for future generations ESPECIALLY DIABETES …and other chronic illnesses
