Living a life free from the complications of diabetes requires a big commitment ...A commitment to yourself. Victory over type 1 diabetes is as much a mindset as it is anything else  You have to control your diabetes --You can't let your diabetes control you...

The Good News is that controlling your diabetes is completely POSSIBLE.

That is the reason for this website.  I have grown tired of running into people with diabetes, some of them friends, who are not taking care of their diabetes or who know someone who is a poorly controlled diabetic.  Well, I am committed to reducing the number of these  and one of the best ways that I can do that is to  share what I call the "Blueprint" on how to live free from the complications of diabetes.
