ya know it is so cool that some of us guys can talk about this. I mean, a bud of mine at work were actually discussing colonoscopy's (sp). Not many dudes can do that but I think it is important. If you nip it early it could mean a lot. Just like in my case, i have always managed a great BP reading, and all my blood work has been great. Even being over weight. However, by a chance of fate my wife made me a Dr appt with a new doctor and they did blood work on the spot. That is when I learned I have a pre cursor to diabetes. That was a wake up call and luckily it was a routine check up that found it.
