I faced some tough opponents throughout my career in the boxing ring. It took the perfect combination of punches, resilience and an enduring commitment to become a champion. Today, the U.S. is facing a hard-hitting opponent of its own -- diabetes.
I can think of at least several good reasons for not keeping your diabetes a secret. It is usually a good idea to let at least a few of your close friends and/or colleagues that you see on a regular basis know you have diabetes.
