can anyone tell me that how the diabetes can be founded out. My grandmother is diagnosed diabetes, she is now 60 years and I have heard the doctor saying to my mother that there are chances that now the disease can run in your family. I am very much upset because my grand mother is diagnosed and secondly i may also contract the disease. I am very close to my current boyfriend and have sex with him several times. Is it possible that he may also get diabetes. I have heard some persons say that you always have the genes for the diabetes but it is only in the old age when you will start upon the disease. Plz help me I am very much tensed.
I just got diagnosed with shingles today. My pain is not too severe yet and I only have few blisters. I was prescribed Acyclovir 800 mg. the blisters are on above my waistline. Will being caught in the early stages lessen the severity of the shingles?
