I Didn’t Even Know I Had Diabetes

I needed to learn all about diabetes in Brazil because I had a crummy doctor who didn’t seem to know which way the stethoscope went into his ears. That happens a lot down here because the country’s medical system leaves a lot to be desired. The rich people often leave the country for their medical care, and the very poor don’t get any care at all. The rest of us have to sort of suffer through idiot doctors who shouldn’t have medical licenses. I often try and diagnose my conditions online before I even think about going to see one of these doctors.

Recently, I had a situation occur that made me think I might have a metabolic disorder. In particular, I started suffering from blurred vision and some other symptoms that made me think I might have developed diabetes. I know for a fact that this disease runs in my family.
