Right now I am chomping on some New York style pizza (which is the best kind by the way). After that, I won’t be eating for about 14 hours. In the grand scheme of things that’s not a lot of time, but I am sure I will have hunger pains. So the reason this is “blog-worthy” is because I am fasting for a blood test that will help figure out if I have early signs of diabetes or thyroid problems. My father was diagnosed with diabetes in his late 30s. His mother has it, his uncle had it. My mom’s father has it, my mom’s grandmother had it. My 5 year old little cousin on my mom’s side has it. My mother has thyroid problems. I have had some symptoms that could be indicative of either. Sure it possible that I am noticing them because I have grown up with diabetes, but it could also be that I will develop this incurable disease. We will see. I would appreciate your prayers.
