Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with additional services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

If you are not sure if what your doctors are telling you is correct then the best thing to do is consult with an endocrinologist. Then, if this subspecialist tells you tha tyou have type 2 diabetes, follow her it starting insulin, a diabetic pill, a change in diet, weight loss or exercise.

Make sense to you?
