  • HAVE YOUR KIDNEYS CHECKED ASAP-should be done regularly. My son needed kidney meds shortly after diagnosis @ age 9 Always a struggle to keep sugar levels stable, this only became worse when he entered his teens & began caring for himself. He died at age 25. Autopsy listed main cause of death to be kidney failure brought on by complications of Type 1 Diabetes. Realize how quickly your life can end if not taken seriously. Find another Dr. if you know you don't feel well, but he says you're fine.

  • Any time skin is yellow it is important to have your liver checked. Sometime the bile duct can get plugged and cause bile to back up causing jaundice (yellow skin). It is important to have an examine and have your liver and gallbladder checked. This link explains it: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/jaundice.html
