Among medical conditions, few diseases have been shown to affect every part of the person. Diabetes claims that reputation, making knowledge the best medicine for thriving with – not just surviving – this common mind and body health challenge. A diagnosis of diabetes may send shivers through the patient, ripples that reach out to family, friends, associates, acquaintances, and folks who’ll someday cross paths – personally or professionally.
