Not What He Seems

 

My friend’s dad has diabetes, but to me, he’s always looked healthy. Whenever my dad saw him, they would break into a conversation about it. I would stand in the corner with my friend and would hear things like “What did the doctor say?” and “It’s so hard to control.” But I never really thought about how people can die easily just by having a certain overload of sugar in one’s blood.

As a diabetic, it’s important to make sure you know how much sugar is in the foods you eat. Always try looking at the nutrition facts if you are uncertain about the amount sugar in your food. Remember, diabetes is hard to control and it can get worse everyday if you don’t take action. Diabetes can stick with you for 30, 40, or 50 years and at first you might feel great but it is still important to manage your sugar levels because over years, high sugars will damage your body. If you have diabetes, you’re in it for the long haul. As for my friend’s dad, I told him that life gets a little sweeter everyday.
