3 Questions: Karen Murray, Type 2 Diabetic from Lakewood, California

We ask Everyday Diabetics three questions and they record themselves answering from the heart. Real people, real answers, unfiltered and uncut for the real world.

This week we asked Karen Murray. Karen was just recently diagnosed with Type 2 in May of this year –one week before she was to celebrate her 49th birthday.

Karen wasn’t completely surprised by the diagnosis. Her mother, unfortunately, passed at the age of 52 from untreated Type 2 diabetes.

Three Questions:

1. What was your reaction when you were first diagnosed?
2. Tell us about your experience with diabetes and how it has affected your life?
3. What advice would you give to someone who has recently been diagnosed?
