What If…You Did Little to Nothing?

This post is the first in a series about what happens if you don’t take control of your Diabetes.  The basic message of this blog is that you can control your Diabetes; you can through simple steps (let me hear them – Diet, Exercise and Meds) can wind up enjoying generally better health and feeling better than you have in years.  It’s true.

What brought this series about is a conversation with a woman with whom I work. She told me that she knows “a lot of diabetics.”  Okay, that’s not a big deal – there are a lot of us.  But what she said next surprised me, “but there are only two who really do anything about it.”  Two?  What do the rest do?  “Oh, sometimes they take their meds; but most of the time they don’t.  The don’t use their meters very often – only when they might remember.”  They aren’t taking Diabetes seriously.  But, not to worry; Diabetes takes us seriously.

So, what are some of the complications of Diabetes?  Aside from leading to organ failure and death?  Well, there’s a lot that could happen…

You don’t have to read the article – watch the video.

There will be several “What If…” posts looking at some of the specific complications diabetics can look forward to if they do nothing at all.  But, remember, you can control your Diabetes – and when it’s controlled, complications don’t happen to a person with Diabetes than they do to the population at large.  In other words things are normal.

We are at WAR with Diabetes.  It’s a war we must win for ourselves, significant others, children, grandchildren, and unborn generations.  And, together we will win.

As always, thank you for reading.


I am not a doctor or health professional. I am just a guy who is working everyday to control Type 2 Diabetes. My goal is to offer hope, help and solutions for day-to-day living for the diabetic. The disease can be controlled. It can be managed. And, you can do it!
