Why I Think the term "Pre-Diabetes" is a Misnomer
Tuesday, January 14, 2020      25 comments

The doc appointment I went to with my family member got him in on-time, and then to lab, and more tests scheduled that he will go to alone in the near future. For now, it doesn't look as bleak as we thought and is still "fixable." It all rests... Read more
