During my working career in the medical industry of over 10 years, I have seen first hand where we all will end up if we don't adhere to our health as the paramount priority in our lives.
Even now as a daughter, mother and wife, the stability of my health directly affects the livelihood and well-being of my family.
The great Greek Physician said it best, "A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings, and learn how by his own thought to derive benefit from his illnesses."
I've learned (and at times the hard way) that being healthy is not just about exercising and eating right, it is also about a change of mindset and a change of life style.
Diabetes unfortunately kills more people than Breast Cancer and Aids combined, and it affects unfavorably more on the Latino population compared to any other ethnicity.
I have family members who are currently living with Diabetes, and I encourage them to personally take charge of their health and to stay active.
Moreover, I urge my loved ones and friends think and act healthy and to get an early start. A great start is by taking your "A1c" medical lab test.
Not all healthcare providers conduct the A1c lab test off the bat, in many cases you have to request it, and at many other times, you have to INSIST that your doctor orders your A1c medical lab test (Note: they cannot deny you this test).
The A1c medical lab test will give you a more exact measurement of how close or how far off you are from being 1) Pre-Diabetic, or 2) Diabetic.
Diabetes in the grand majority of cases is preventable, so digan Si al “A1c", and go get tested today!
[*For friends and family that are leaning on Obesity and Diabetic issues due to hereditary or lifestyle concerns, get your A1c medical lab test Today!]
