Scott’s Diabetes Journal

Here is a great blog of a diabetic named Scott Johnson who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1980. Scott’s Diabetes Journal is the perfect way for Scott to share his struggles, triumphs, and feelings towards and with diabetes. I personally enjoy Scott’s favorite quote in the title image of his blog. “Diabetes is like being expected to play the piano with one hand while juggling items with another hand, all while balancing with deftness and dexterity on a tightrope.” Check out the blog and follow Scott’s journey with diabetes.

Early detection of diabetes can assist with treatment and boost your physical health as well as your mental well-being. Diabetes symptoms and diagnosis generally go unnoticed because the signs seem so harmless and simple.

According to the About.com website, if you begin to experience any of the following symptoms, consult your doctor immediately:

  • Frequent trips to the bathroom
  • Unquenchable thirst
  • Losing weight without trying
  • Weakness and fatique
  • Tingling or numbness in your limbs
