Welcome and thanks for your insights. Diabetes is a sneaky disease and yet it leaves tracks if we are tested and aware. We are personally responsible for knowing our family histories and taking ownership of our health, including annual (at least) checkups. It also takes health care professionals that will read our test results and provide us with some warning when the numbers are trending toward a diabetes diagnosis. In my personal case, my blood glucose numbers were in the “pre-diabetic” range for 2 years before I was diagnosed. I would have liked to have known where I was headed when I could still do something about it.
