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.

Within Asia, there is a city called Nepal, just north from Bangladesh, and about due east from Pakistan. A boy named Ashok KC talks about his experience having diabetes. He explains that he’s had diabetes for about 4 years, now he is 16. Ashok has to ride on the bus for two hours in order to get his insulin from the hospital. Because he too lives in a poor country, he cannot bring a lot of insulin home, because it will most likely spoil.

Chandra Dhimal, says that his daughter got diabetes since the age of 6 years old. Dhimal explained how their daughter started getting the diabetic symptoms, i.e., excessive thirst, weight loss, etc.  The father also explained that his daughter’s blood sugar must be in good control, because she often has to walk for hours to get a bus. His father also said something very important. I want all my visitors to read carefully. Because the father loves his daughter so much, he said he went to a fortune teller, which promised him that he could “heal” his daughter. The father eventually sold his land, believing that his beloved daughter would be “cured”. I don’t need to tell you that the cure never happened. In fact, not only did his daughter get sicker, the alleged fortune teller was no were to be found!! I’m sure the father learned a very hard lesson that day. As I’ve always said time and time again, diabetes is a complexed disease,  and you will need more than just a few herbal ingredients and prayer to manage diabetes.

 

In part 2, a doctor discusses how many children would not come in to the hospital, because most could not afford the insulin, and get extremely sick. Now, their clinic offers free insulin, and now more children are coming to the hospital. From there, they are educated about diabetic infections, blood sugar levels, and all other important topics that concerns diabetics.

Yogi.
