Diabetes, PLEASE READ.

If you wish to take the piss please do, but I wish to convey a serious message for once.

My Brother died on Saturday of a Heart Attack brought on by the complications of Diabetes, he was 43.

Please if you eat crap, are overweight, or don't exercise get yourself or your friends and family checked out. One blood or urine test will see if you are at risk or already have diabetes.

Please do this for you and your family's sake, early death from diabetes is preventable, you just need to take action now.

I'm sorry for your loss, my prayers are with you at this time.


Getting checked out takes a few mins and is worth the time taken

Very sorry to read of your loss, re-stilly.

I wonder if TPTB might consider making this a sticky for a while, in order to raise awareness?

Sorry to hear that.

Was it type 1, or type 2 diabetes?
It was type 1, he had had it since he was 17 but didn't look after himself. He had had 2 kidney and one pancreas transplants,the kidney ones failed. He was on dialysis and had other issues as well due to the diabetes.

Sorry to hear about your loss. My sister in law was Type 1 insulin dependant. Died age 32. Thought she could do what she wanted, eat what she wanted etc so long as she used insulin. Would not listen to advice.

My deepest condolences. Two of my immediate family are diabetics, one is type 1 the other type 2. Is diabetes hereditary, I've often wondered .

Trouble is it sneaks up on you so you don't know you have it until it is too late in some cases, a lot can be preventable, cut back on the cakes and sweets, cut out processed food, lose a stone or two, walk to work, cycle for 30 minutes around the neighbourhood. All this will help, and if you do find you have it then do as you are asked by the medical profession. It will save you from ending up in a premature grave.
