Quote from Wayne Kristoff
St. Joseph's Health Care London - 

I was diagnosed in June 2014 with Type 2 diabetes.  It was bothersome but not unexpected as I had been told by my family doctor that I was borderline diabetic for a while. My father was also Type 2 and my paternal grandmother had what was described as a “sugar problem” in the late 40’s and early 50’s.  From what has been discussed in our family, I believe that it would be called Type 2 today. At the time of my diagnosis, I was told that I would be on medication for the rest of my life.
