30 years ago, my grandmother’s life was forever changed when she was diagnosed diabetes type 2. She was neither obsessed, nor decayed-teeth; the reason why she got this disease was only because of over chemotherapy. From that time, her lifestyle transferred to non-sugar and non-fat mode, including whole family eventually. Although she put all her effort to control her blood sugar, her vision began to blur, and her skin began to ulcerate. Every time when I heard this story from my father, I felt frightened about diabetes. As her healthy situation became worse and worse, it seemed impossible to balance her physical condition and happiness.
