Is It Diabetes?

Talk to your doctor if you experience any of these red flags for type 2 diabetes. A simple blood-sugar test is the only way to find out if you have the disease.

  • Persistent fatigue, regardless of sleep patterns
  • Increased thirst and hunger
  • Frequent urination
  • Numbness and tingling in toes
  • Blurred vision
  • Slow-healing infections

Hi folks! I am very excited to share with you a wonderful guide that helped me quit smoking for good - I have 9 months of smoke-free now, with the help of Allen Hudson's Quit Smoking Strategy. With Allen's guidance I managed to overcome my dependency, to fight the withdrawal symptoms and any temptations. I am so happy, my family and friends are so proud of me and most importantly, I feel healthy and full of energy! All thanks to Allen and his Quit Smoking Strategy: quitsmokingstrategy.com

I have type 2 diabetes. I have read a lot of articles on this and this one is on the money. The part that inspired me to comment was the information that I hope will incourage my kids to adjust some of thier bad habits. Very interesting studies that relate to most young people today. Thanks for the info.

What if you CANNOT sleep longer than 6 hours? I do NOT use an alarm to wake up, and if I try to go to bed earlier - I just wake up earlier!
