Type 2 Diabetes – Change Your Attitude Towards Diabetes and Take Back Your Life

Firstly, let us begin by saying the message underlying this discussion is not necessarily directed towards you.

Type 2 Diabetes – Preeclampsia Raises the Risk of Gestational Diabetes

Preeclampsia is a condition occurring in pregnancy after the first 20 weeks. The Mayo Clinic describes it as high blood pressure during pregnancy, with at least one organ damaged, usually the kidneys.
