The Diabetes Store bridges the gap for people with Diabetes

Diabetes is something close to my heart. My dad died from Diabetes complication when I was still a little kid which I guess I can say was too much for me to deal with at that time. Through the years, my mom has been very paranoid when it comes to our health, she wants to make sure we don’t inherit it from our dad. However, as I was growing up, I tend to do the things that somehow makes me closer to the disease… fortunately, up till now I am still clear from it.

The Media launching of the The Diabetes Store made me realize the things that I was doing wrong and also opened my eyes on what I can do to prevent it happening to me and my kids. My son was diagnosed as obese last year and I can’t help but worry that we might be too late in helping him get healthy. The discussion during the launching somehow helped me realize it is not too late for a lifestyle change not just for my kid but for me as well.

The Diabetes Store is your one stop shop for diabetes products and services. They offer a wide array of products that will help people with diabetes manage it easily plus value added services that is beneficial for the patients and their families.
