Hello
« on: November 27, 2017, 02:17:21 AM »
Hello,

I am gunsmith from Australia. I have been just told by my doctor a few days ago that I have Type II Diabetes. My blood sugar number when he checked was 12.24 mmol.

I hope to learn all about diabetes and that is why I joined.

Hello gunsmith,

I can tell you that you’ve landed in the right place just like me. Your numbers seem pretty high to me. The best place to start would be to look at the Articles of the site. That button is on the top on the right side. For all discussions there is always the forum.
