I made this page as a reference to sites I visit often. My husband, Bill, was a Diabetic for over 44 years. He was a type 1 Diabetic. He managed his Diabetes with strict controls. The disease caused him to have 2 separate by-pass heart surgeries, numerous other heart procedures, bladder problems, kidneys problems, and the list goes on and on. Even with all that was medically wrong with him the doctors were amazed that he still had his eye sight, his kidneys functioned and that he has not lost his feet or toes.
On June 15, 2001 my Bill lost his battle with diabetes. I awoke to find him having an insulin reaction. His low blood sugar caused him to have convulsions. I knew to get orange juice laced with sugar into him as soon as possible. I did this and he seems to response to my voice. He told me to check his blood sugar. I left him for a moment to get his monitor from our family room. Upon my return I took his hand to be able to prick his finger to get a drop of blood. When I moved him his turned to me, took a deeped breath and let it out. At that moment he was gone. It was determined that he had another heart attack. His battle is now over.
I hope some of these links give you the information you need. I will be updating and adding links as I use them. Updated on July 22, 2001. ;-) bb

Diabetes is a disorder characterized by hyperglycemia or elevated blood glucose (blood sugar). Our bodies function best at a certain level of sugar in the bloodstream. If the amount of sugar in our blood runs too high or too low, then we typically feel bad. Diabetes is the name of the condition where the blood sugar level consistently runs too high. Diabetes is the most common endocrine disorder. Sixteen million Americans have diabetes, yet many are not aware of it. African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans have a higher rate of developing diabetes during their lifetime. Diabetes has potential long term complications that can affect the kidneys, eyes, heart, blood vessels and nerves. A number of pages on this web site are devoted to the prevention and treatment of the complications of diabetes.
