Edith shares the fears she has about living with type 2 diabetes.

With the fear of diabetes, my grandfather had his leg amputated, so you worry about the open sores. You fear that it’s going to take your eyesight because I know that that has been a problem. My sister’s had cataract surgery, and possibly she would have had it without diabetes, but with diabetes it is more prevalent.

So you fear that, and that’s about all the fear that I can see that I would be afraid of. It’s the eyesight, the asking questions, so, just make sure you ask a lot of questions. It will make you feel more comfortable.
