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.

Come on….. Be honest….. Most of us has done it at least once! You know….. When you’ve been diabetic for so long, that while watching television you wonder if your favorite fictional character could be diabetic too? In this section, I poke fun of “Fictional Characters” that fits the “diabetic profile”. The featured character wins DiabeticRadio’s “Mostly Likely To Be Diabetic Award”. :-)

 

In my opinoin, I think John Leguizamo did a wonderful job in the movie "SPAWN". Leguizamo played a crazy demon clown from hell. Not only was he hilarious in this movie, his fictitious character also posseses all the classic characteristics of diabetes. However, the funny thing is, if I were to imagine that this clown is real, I would be dumbfounded! Why? Becuase, for someone that does not take good care of the rest of his body, his teeth are absolutely perfect!! Hahaha!! He is my choice for Most Likely Diabetic Award.

 

 

You know it's interesting. I've watched many episodes of Family Guy, and I've rarely seen Peter eat. He's extremely active, always running, jumping, and doing hilarious things, yet he's big as a house. Peter Griffin of Family Guy is my pick for Most likely to be diabetic award!
