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.

    Hello and thank you for discussing these facts. I have been trying to even get my doctor to realize that food is not the total culprit in diabetes at all. I come from a family of many diabetics and heredity is a major factor with us. My real father and all seven of us siblings along with our two grandmothers and many others in the family all have had the diagnosis of diabetes confirmed over the years. Food has had little to do with our cases but doctors these days won’t listen. I PRAY you have great results from the public and medical profession with this as you speak the entire truth about these facts. Again thank you so very much for bringing these facts ti life. May God Bless you and yours always.

    Hi Arkie, sorry for my tardiness. I have decided since last year that I would no longer produce anymore articles or video for diabeticradio. It has been a long fight for me, but unfortunately, the beliefs of the stupid seemed to always prevail. It baffles me to know end; I don’t understand how the public so easily believes everything they see on TV, then try to use these same propaganda to tell diabetics how we should live (a life never experienced by the “adviser”). Since the beginning of television, we’ve always known that stereotypes have existed; even rallied behind the misrepresentation of various groups such as Latinos, African Americans, Asians, Native Americans, etc. Yet the public insist that everything they hear on television about diabetes is a scientific fact. The truth of the matter is, we haven’t won the war on obesity in more than 33+ years! What does that tell us? People wind up risking their lives for a barbaric surgery, because it is presented as a miracle cure. It tells us that their is a genetic component! But instead, Americans do what they do best, that is make everything the fault of the diabetic. We never tried cancer patients in the same way (“if they’ve only ate more fruits and vegetables, they would not have gotten cancer”). I am quite fed up of the public, people are just way to comfortable in their own biases and ignorance. Now, I’m just taking care of me, and if people refuse the experience of someone who’s already gone through what most couldn’t handle; well, then they will just wake up one day with a missing limb. Arkie, I only logged on to delete the login/email accounts. I have saved your email address, we can still keep in contact if you’d like. I hope that all is well.
