About the Book

Diabetes⸺a hereditary disease⸺can affect families over many generations. Occurrences can often be compounded by unhealthy dietary and lifestyle choices. In this first part of this book, I have described the struggles I have faced with diabetes in my family. Both my grandfathers, and my father, were diagnosed with diabetes before I was even a year old. The disease spans at least two generations in my family, maybe more. Through research into the prevalence, symptoms and preventative measures relevant to the disease, I hope to prevent the continuation of this cycle. I conducted survey-based research to discern the prevalence of diabetes and discuss implications, comparing my own data to data obtained from the CDC to determine validity. Lastly, I provided ways of identifying the disease through common symptoms, as an early diagnosis can make regulation easier, and provided habits that are conducive to the prevention of diabetes.
