Diabetes is a chronic illness.  Dealing with insurance and medical professionals can  slower than what you want to get treated.  Do you think that sometimes the barriers that are in place via insurance companies hinders getting appropriate treatment?

I was onces at a pre diabetic state,
I cut my carbs drastically & my
A1c. Dropped from 6.4 to 5.1
All within a month.
Diabetes does not have to be
Progressive like some say.
You are in control by your low
Carb food choices. Im living proof.
