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.

Richard A. Vaugn


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.

Diabetes Info

I’ve had the pleasure of talking with Adam Bruk, who is a content writer for several different businesses. One of the companies he writes for is Socks4Life, which is a wonderful online retail store, that not only specializes in designer socks, but socks that are specifically geared toward  diabetics in mind. In addition, Socks4Life has lots of information about the importance of tacking care of your feet, especially when your diabetic. Mr. Bruk discussed with me his goal of building a resources of people who are doing positive things in the DOC (Diabetic Online Community).

I applaud Mr. Bruk for his efforts in doing this, because the truth of the matter is, many diabetic businesses would not give two s**ts about positive diabetic bloggers, unless there was money in it for them. Also, explained that these resources will be separate from the actual online store; which impressed me even more, for it shows integrity, and a business not trying to indirectly make money from the good works of others.

Mr. Bruk has created the absolutely awesome graphic you see above, to try and help bring awareness to just how much of an epidemic diabetes continues to become. Unfortunately, because diabetes is climing so rapidly, no one can keep up with the statistics any longer. Last week, I visited the World Health Organization’s website. Their statistics are now as follows: 346 million people world wide have diabetes, and the rate of death is expected to double between now and the year 2030. I have also read on another site that India is no longer the diabetes capital; China is now slowly becoming the diabetes capital of the world! I can’t stress enough to my readers that, diabetes is no longer just an “American disease”; nor is it just an American problem.

It is the hope of both Mr. Bruk and I, that the public will take heed to all the hard work we all are doing for YOU in the DOC! It is both our hopes that most of you don’t wait until it’s too late to learn, and understand the devastating impact of sugar. We also hope that you equally learn about the positive sides as well, that you can live an extremely healthy and have a long life with controlled diabetes.
