Some months ago, I noticed numbness in my feet. I saw Dr. Vellinga, he ran several tests, and determined that I was pre-diabetic. He counseled me, gave me a diet and exercise routine to follow, and within six months, when I was retested, my blood sugar was back in the normal range, I was no longer a candidate for diabetes. He has a way of explaining things in "layman" terms, so that his patients can easily understand what health conditions they may be dealing with.
