37-Year-Old Man Nearly Dies of Diabetes - For Life Magazine

Excellent article I was asked to contribute in recently. This is about a young man who managed to take charge of this life and regulate his blood sugars after a near death experience with undiagnosed diabetes.
Diabetes can occur in people of any age and presents with no symptoms especially in the early stages. If you have a family history of diabetes, are overweight, smoke or have high blood pressure, raised cholesterol or a previous diagnosis of gestational diabetes, it is important that you consider getting yourself screened at least annually for raised blood sugars.
