From 1998 to 2006 I worked for an organization that provided a health screening for employees once per year. It wasn’t mandatory to go through the screening but as an incentive, employees received a free sweatshirt or t-shirt with the company’s name and logo on it. It was quality wear and looked nice so I always went through the process. They had a nurse who checked weight, blood pressure, and did a blood test to check the glucose level and iron count. The organization also provided health and wellness information. The idea was to educate employees on health so that they would take better care of themselves. Healthy employees mean less sick leave.
In 2004 I went through the screening and received my sweatshirt. Before leaving the nurse took me into a private room and told me my glucose level was high and I needed to see my doctor right away. I was surprised. The only one in my family at the time who had diabetes was by grandmother and that was onset by injuries from a fire in a camper that exploded many years earlier. I made an appointment with my doctor and he did a fasting test. The test came out positive for diabetes. I started using pills (MetFORMIN), diet and exercise. But eventually my doctor began prescribing insulin.
Since first being diagnosed, both my wife and I have done massive amounts of research on diabetes. I have learned more than I probably need to on the subject. I have learned a lot from all the research I and my wife have done. It takes a lot of time to do the research. It is not all in one spot. I’ve read books, pamphlets, searched the web, subscribed to magazines…
