Makes you want to run right out and stand an a cactus…NOT!
So, there I was looking through the Sunday Los Angeles Times newspaper. Yes, I still look at an old school newspaper. “But, Phil, it’s so much easier to read articles online.” Yeah…maybe. But, you miss a lot, too.
I never would have seen a full-page advertisement for a meeting hosted by a chiropractic clinic about neuropathy that included dinner at a coffee shop. Why did I even look at the ad? Because you couldn’t miss it, and because 50% of all Diabetics will have some form of neuropathy. I know, you are asking, “What the heck is neuropathy?”
Translation: pain in your feet and hands that is at the very least uncomfortable, and can get so bad you no longer walk. Even more basic translation: can be very bad news.
Here’s the thing: neuropathy – The Pain – does not have to happen. Yep, it does not have to happen to Diabetics. And, yet it does and it will continue to happen until more folks learn how to control their Diabetes. Look at the numbers for just a second. If there are over 25,000,000 million Diabetics, and there are, then there are going to be 12,500,000 people who get neuropathy – and that’s just Diabetics. There are other causes, too. But, if you control your Diabetes and keep your A1c under 7.0, chances are you will not suffer…yes, suffer…from complications from the disease including The Pain.
You can control your Diabetes. Yes, it will take a bit of work in the beginning, but it will soon become almost second nature. You can take control and not have to face neuropathy, or other complications from Diabetes.
You can win your war to control the disease – people are doing it everyday. Think about it. You can choose to control Diabetes; or, by not making a choice, you may face some serious complications. Seems like a no-brainer, doesn’t it?
And, if you have been told you have Prediabetes, don’t ignore it. You can fight and win. Prediabetes does not have to turn into Diabetes; it’s your chance to fight and never become a statistic…please do not underestimate Diabetes. It can be a terrible, terrible disease unless it’s controlled.
You can win your War On Diabetes. Please declare war and mean it.
As always, thank you for reading.
