Hello Health and Lifestyle VIPs,
It’s Dr. Bernadette, your friendly informative family medicine doctor, prescribing health, healing and happiness and guiding you to your passion and purpose. Diabetes affects over 29.1 million Americans that’s why I wrote an article and more than one blog about the disease. In layman terms, diabetes means the blood sugar is too high because the pancreas is not making enough insulin or the body is not using the insulin being produce very well. However, diabetes is largely a lifestyle disease which implies you have more control over your blood sugar than you choose to accept.
