It's an insidious disease and those who suffer from it may have this handicap for the remainder of their lives, but it doesn't have to be that way. One doesn't suddenly wake up with diabetes as there is an onset stage. Type 2 is the most common and it affects children as well as adults and it can be reversed. Symptoms occur long before diagnosis and healing through the Spirit is also possible.
Sugar and overweight conditions cause it and obesity is rampant. Latest reports show there are more people obese than underweight people in the world today. This is a serious statistic and the reasons may be less obvious that the craving one has for fast food and sugar loaded drinks.
A few years ago my doctor took some tests that suggested I was border-line diabetic. My grandmother suffered from it and the genes run in the family. Like everything, however, the trigger for onset of a genetically inherited disease is usually environment. At that time in my life my days were spent writing.
