I was diagnosed with diabetes 1n 1994. But I had 3 paralytic strokes with coma & double vision twice. 1993, 2002 & 2013. I'm on insulin. Blood Pressure & diabetes are close buddies. They are killer diseases. I have a BP and a diabetes measuring kit (Accu check active). I use them regularly. Based upon the results, I adjust my food habits. I'm now 57 years old.
