By the way, in case you didn't know it October is Diabetes Awareness Month.

As a person who has more than one family member and a few friends who have been diagnosed, I thought I'd take a moment to remind you:

1) Check you blood pressure regularly
It's not called the 'silent killer' for nothing

2) Eat lots of leafy green vegetables and include lots of fiber in your diet.
Diets high in saturated fats and sugar causes imbalances in your system.
Foods that help you poop it all out keeps your system in better condition.

3) Get some excercise
Walk, throw a frisbee with a friend, anything.
Just get outside and be active (or be active inside.. whatever!).

Luckily I haven't been diagnosed with diabetes, but it tends to run in my family so I constantly have to keep an eye out for indicators that I have developed it.

So do yourself a favor and get checked.
