Yes diabetes affects your long term health. It is I portant to keep your sugar under control and the only way to know is to test your blood and every three months have an A1C test. To see if you really are behaving.
I just started a discussion about blood sugar testing on the message boards, hoping to make people aware of the issue that blood sugar levels affect our overall health, incl. heart health in a huge way and that knowing one's blood sugar levels can be a huge help in staying healthy. Please feel free to join me to share your experiences.
