Lesson #5

Wrap Up

That covers the major complications of diabetes. There's a lot to chew on, that's for sure. But this section covers some of the most critical information you can learn.

Assignment #2
Now, lets go back to that quiz again and see how much you've learned.

Assignment #3
Let's try to get what we've covered into some real life experiences that you can. . . um . . . experience.

Chose one of the following assignments for your learning pleasure:

Take a good look at your mouth. How are your gums? Are they red or inflamed? How's your toothbrush holding up? If it's seen better days, go out and get yourself a new one. Figure out when you saw the dentist last and if you need to set up an appointment in the near future.
