I’m Ed Smith, a Folsom Personal Injury Lawyer. Despite all of the advances made in the field of medicine, obesity and diabetes continue to persist as some of modern society’s greatest challenges. Diabetes has the potential to cause numerous complications that can add a significant amount of stress to families everywhere.
