After years of suffering for almost 20 years with fibromyalgia, I found a way to reverse the symptoms of my disease. I have lived free from fibromyalgia for almost 15 years. The experience of living with pain and suffering every day to getting my life back was a life changing experience.
Although I have never had diabetes, I experienced diabetes in my family. My paternal grandmother died from complications of diabetes when my father was just five years old. Diabetes stripped my father of growing up with a mother. I was never given the opportunity of knowing my grandmother. My favorite uncle had diabetes when I was growing up. I first remember him “hiding’ the doughnuts.....his belly didn’t hide them, though. He had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and belly fat. He then had to have a big toe amputated. As time went on the diabetes continued to deteriorate his body until one day he died of complications of diabetes.
I also made an acquaintance several years ago with a man who had suffered from diabetes and almost died from a diabetic coma and a glucose level of 1337. I met him shortly after he had that experience. He had lived to tell the story. DeWayne used his background and biochemistry to gain knowledge and to learn how to wean himself off 4 insulin shots per day, save his legs, and reverse his Type II diabetes. His story was a phenomenal story of recovery.
My Diabetes Coach grew from a combination of my experience of living with a chronic disease and getting my life back, my professional background of health coaching and education, fitness and biomechanics, nutrition, and wellness, pedorthics, and my passion for helping people. Diabetes is in epidemic proportions and people are looking for ways to prevent and reduce the effects and complications of the disease. People are challenged with finding real answers with real results.
