I hope that you find this page helpful in averting needless outcomes. Some unnecessary results of diabetes are: amputations, premature death, and blindness. Why invite problems? Diabetes is a very serious and dangerous disease. But with some easily available support and encouragement, you may be able to live with this disease for many years to come. Some examples of support and encouragement include the advice of your physician, well-meaning family members that love you and friends that want you to be there with them as they age. My wish for all of you with diabetes is that your children and your grandchildren will see your smile for many years.
