Diabetes

I never knew that diabetes can be such a complicated and life-long disease! A friend’s mother just got diagnosed with it recently and aside from a very strict diet of controlled carbohydrates and very little sugar, she would need insulin shots three times a day. It seems that complications like heart and kidney problems and blindness result from diabetes too if left uncontrolled. I cannot imagine how expensive that could be, with the medicine and insulin syringes . It is good though that her sister is a nurse overseas and can order bulk supplies at AllegroMedical.com. At least they can save more!
