Three years ago i was diagnosed with diabetes. Not having a clue what was going on with my body(which i knew very well). First having to urinate like every 3-5 minutes,vision was hazey,tired and dehydrated. I had a Dr's appointment three days prior. Seen my doctor…everything's fine til three days later and all hell broke loose. When at the Dr's office i wasn't there no more than 10 minutes when the nurse came out to tell me to go straight to the Hospital(accross the street)that they were waiting for me. Puzzled as i was, so i went. When i get there i was admitted instantly. I was also told that my blood-sugar was over 1700. However I didn't feel any different, but was told i was very blessed to be alive still. I stayed in Hospital a week until they got it down. Long story short…I'm still here and feeling better than ever(thank God)lost about 30lbs down to where i should be between 140-150, don't excercise a lot but my job keeps me busy. So that's my story…keep me in your prayers and God Bless.
