According to a post by Harvard Medical School, every 17 seconds - someone, somewhere is being diagnosed with diabetes. Many professionals agree that in most cases it can be avoided, by simply being conscious of what you are eating.

Know your sugar levels and stay healthy.
Remember, nothing tastes as good as what healthy feels!

I've always been worried about contracting diabetes, i can only imagine how hard to must be to deal with after being used to being healthy for most of your life.

Then stay healthy, Germs, and simply do not get diabetes. They say that health is your greatest wealth and I truly believe that. As for diabetes, they say that so many are walking around undiagnosed....I feel exercise plays a huge role in keeping one healthy. Survival of the fittest!

@Germs watching your diet and exercising regularly consistently can help prevent that. My grandfather had diabetes so I share a similar worry of contracting diabetes when i was younger. I was told that there was a higher chance for me compared to an average person to contract diabetes, since someone in the family has contracted it before. Since a young age, I would avoid sugary food and exercise pretty much out of fear. Now, that fear has lessen but the eating and exercising habit has been pretty much cultivated.

I have not know any in our family who have diabetes but that will not make me that careless about what I eat. Anyone can have such disease because of too much intake of glucose and some other factors like bad lifestyle. Better to prevent it cause it would be hard as I could read about some who have such disease.

Know your sugar levels and stay healthy.

This reminds me of my teacher way back in High School who was diagnosed with diabetes. She faint when her sugar level drops. It is often dangerous it can damage internal organs of the body. Obese people increases the risk of having diabetes. Change in lifestyle and controlling sugar particularly sweets is one factor to fight diabetes.

I love sweets, but I try to limit my consumption as much as possible. I will be baking a lot for the holidays, so I have limited my consumption of sweets until then. I also understand that as I get older, I should watch my diet even closer.
