    Being a diabetic myself, I found this to be fascinating!!!

    There has been a study done that suggests that Alzheimers may be a diabetes-related ilness:

    Yahoo! Story...

    I found that to be really interesting! Any other diabetics out there?

    My Grandpa has diabetes, pretty mild form thank God, but it is getting worse with age.

    Man, I hope not...for your sake and for others who have to live with diabetes!

    My cousin (the girl that was in a few of the Viking-Packer tailgate pics with me and the rest of the PP.O crew) is also a diabetic...I am sure that she would not be happy hearing about this.

    A side question, Shock: Have you ever eaten at Houlihan's in Chanhassen?

    My dad is a borderline diabetic. He doesn't have to give himself shots yet, only takes pills.. He is 56, so hopefully the pills will keep it in check so he can atleast live the rest of his life without worrying about insulin shots..
