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.

I’ve came to know of Lizmari on a popular diabetes website called TuDiabetes. I was so inspired by not only her amazing transformation, but her outlook on life and her diabetes. Lizmari was diagnosed as Type 2 diabetic November 17th 2009, born in Bayamón, Puerto Rico. At the time of diagnosis, her A1C percentage was 10.5%. With much hard work and positive energy, as of June 2010 her Hemoglobin A1C now runs on average 5%!! In short, Liz Mari has successfully taken her blood sugar down to non-diabetic levels. As a result of tight glucose control, she has lost an amazing amount of weight. She now spends much of her time inspiring others, and lending other diabetics like her some positive energy! These accomplishments are nothing to sneeze at, and is worthy of being honored.

How has she done it? Purely by diet, exercise, and staying focused. On Tudiabetes site, she has written many blog entries on various subjects; ranging from processed foods, building awareness, personal frustrations, and being candid with her life, in addition to sharing with others who are willing to listen.

As many of us know, diabetes can be a very lonely disease for many of us. Rarely have I witnessed someone like Mari, who’s dedicated so much of her time to uplift others via the internet. She has also gone out of her way (many times) to do what ever it takes, in explaining complex subjects, be it concerning her life or diabetes.
