Featured Interview


My guest is Chrystal from L.A.. She is just one of many positive diabetics making a huge difference in the diabetes community. She is a chemist, and diabetic activist. After Chrystal's diagnosis of type 2 diabetes in November 2007, she created SexyDiabetic.com; and donates a good portion of her time connecting and sharing experiences, both inside and outside the online diabetic communities.


Chrystal has shared with us her personal experiences living with diabetes; her role in the diabetic community; some of her current diabetic project she's working on during black history month.


We talked about some of the struggles we we face, getting the African American communities and all other people of color educated on the dangers of diabetes; as well as the fears and discrimination that still exist for diabetics today.

For 2012 I thought it would be wonderful to start the year off with a positive interview!


My guest is Richard A Vaughn. He has written an awesome book called "Beating The Odds - 64 years of Diabetes Health". In this book, he takes us on a journey through his diabetic life.


From the moment he was diagnosed with type 1 at the age of 6, all the way up through completing his masters degree, @ a time when people thought diabetics shouldn't go to college (because diabetes was considered a disability then).


Richard also talks about his wonderful family and grand children, in addition to participating in the Joslin Medalist Study, funded by the JDRF & National Institute of health..


Richard is definitely an inspiration to us all. He has showed us insulin dependent people, how to live healthy emotionally & physically by example, with either no, or the least amount of complications possible; coming from a time when life expectancy for a diabetic was no later than 40 years old.

Diabetic PlayList

*

What's in your headphones? We all know how important exercise is to any diabetic, however, the music you exercise to is also just as important too! Music can make the difference between a 3 minute workout, and a 30 minute workout. Personally, I am an oldies guy, and my musical tastes are pretty eclectic and diverse. The above playlist consist of music I am listening to on my Anddroid when I exercise or power-walk. As my mood changes, so shall the playlist.

Just wanted to talk about my new A1C. Also in this video I talked about why I think diabetes is so heavy in the church. Thirdly, I wanted to ask my supporters who work in the medical community a favor, which I hope at least most will honor. Lastly, I make no mistake, I 100 percent recognize that obisity is a problem, but like I said, it’s not just a matter of food, and we can’t assume that everyone who is fat, is with diabetes, is because we are all eating ourselves to death. You cannot ignore the genetic factor as though it does not exist, or unimportant. In addition to the fact that, you don’t hear about all the fat people who don’t get diabetes, and the THIN people who get type 2. I’s not about fat alone.






Hi guys, this video is specifically directed towards doctors, nurses, and any other health care professional. I would like every single health professional that watch my videos to definitely watch this one. I am speaking in behalf of all diabetics (and or for any other chronic illness for that matter). This is a story about what happened to me on a two visit eye examination. I wasn’t going to say anything on camera at first, but after much thought, I realized I really took offense to the experience that I had. Please note, this NOT a video attack against the facility I was in, nor the specific doctor that was taking care of me, but more on the wide spread sickening perceptions that health care professionals and people have about diabetics; and despite all the forever updated research information about diabetes, this attitude continues to grow more and more everyday. The doctor I was working with me scared the hell out of me for nothing. As a diabetic I work very hard to take care of myself, despite any person’s individual perception of what they think I do in my personal life. People who consistently make snappy judgments against someone they damn well know, they don’t know, I think are in some way neurotic; escaping their own challenges and issues. It is very important that you be aware of the energy you give off to people with diabetes, if not YOU become part of the big problem we have with public health. Please watch the video and show it to every other professional you know, and or make them watch it. You need to know how you make your patients feel.
