RED STRIDER OF THE WEEK - MELISSA HARRISON
On the Monday after Thanksgiving in 1999, I visited my primary care provider to get a referral to a chiropractor. That day the doctor noticed something that was a little off, for I had lost some weight (always a good thing, right???). He had his nurse come in and do a quick blood check and my blood sugar levels were 463.
Not knowing what a diabetic even was, I didn't know what to think. All I knew is the doctor was having a bunch of blood work ordered and his staff was running around like crazy. The next day my husband and I returned to the doctor where my blood sugar was now well over 550.
Needless to say there was no denying I had some issues, and my long journey as a diabetic began.... This year is even more special because it's the 75th Anniversary of the American Diabetes Association. No better time than now to support me in celebrating 75 years of continuous progress working to improve the lives of people with diabetes through research, advocacy and education.
