Get tested: Diabetes is a disease that has many consequences such as kidney, eye , nerve and vascular problems, it is imperative to be proactive rather than wait for symptoms to occur, by then, it may be too late.

Not a good strategy: It's a good policy to see you doctor every three months if you have diabetes. You could be having marginal control that doesn't give you immediate symptoms but over time can lead to some serious complications: heart attack, stroke, kidney disease, neuropathy, erectile dysfunction, glaucoma, cataracts, disorders of the retina, blindness. Not a fun list!
