Charles Mattocks tells those newly diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes to reach out, search, study, investigate, and seek people who know this disease. Knowledge is power.
• Start by doing as much research as you can, gathering as much information as you can. Don’t just accept your prescribed medication and think all is well and nothing else is required of you.
• Talk to people who have diabetes and are doing well.
• Talk to a professional such as a diabetes educator who can give you more time than a primary care physician, who often is short on time and may not be able to explain everything you need to know in depth.
