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.

    I listen to Diabetes Power show out of Las Vegas, but I have started to listen to your show too. Your show is great, because you do not go on and on explaining things. Rather, you explain things in a simple manner, which makes the explanation clearer. I like the other show I listen to, but they talk for an hour on the same thing sometimes. It can get confuluted and confusing. I appreciate people like you that give of yourself to help people like me get an education on Diabetes. Education = Power.

    Thank you so much for your kind words Roxanne. I try to create podcasts that are as down to earth as possible. Diabetes is hard enough, no one wants to listen to something 3 and 4 times before they are able to understand something.. LOL. It’s all about helping each other. I’ve never heard of the Diabetes Power Show before; I think i’ll check them out…….

    I have listened to several of your podcasts, and want to say “thanks” for your practical, informative conversational style. It is a blessing for diabetics to be able to learn from one another so that we can control our disease, rather than having the disease control us! I have great empathy with you regarding your eyes. I too, was diagnosed with cataracts after a long struggle with doctors who would not take my complaints seriously. I cannot tell you how many times I was told “you are too young to need cataract surgery, it must be something else.” When I told the “medical team” either this surgery gets done, or I have to quit driving before I hurt myself or kill someone else, I finally got the surgery and can now see again.
    Thanks again for your blog, and God Bless!
