This is the story of my 64 years with diabetes. It gives my diabetes history and some of my autobiography. Online friends have wanted to know what it was like to be a diabetic in the 1940's and beyond. This will be explored here and carried to the present day. Many topics are discussed, including causes of Type 1 diabetes, how some Type 1 diabetics have lived so long without complications, the Joslin Medalist Program and my participation in the Joslin Medalist Study. There are many pictures dating as far back as the 1930's. My online blogs of my past have been very popular. Hundreds of replies say I have given inspiration and hope for the future of many of my diabetic readers and their families. My hope is that I can do the same for those of you who read this book.

With It's the Sugar, Stupid, I'm certainly not calling anyone stupid. "It's the sugar, Stupid," is my own personal daily mantra to myself. By trying out some of the simple suggestions in this book, you could be experiencing the same life-changing results that I did in less time than it takes to figure out that the meds don't work!! I'm not a doctor, a scientist, or health care professional. I'm just another person who was diagnosed with Type II diabetes. I was told to pop a couple of pills, shoot up some insulin and voila...normal blood sugar! What I found was that nothing could be further from the truth - or our health. I couldn't tolerate the meds I was prescribed(they made me violently ill). They did nothing to change my condition. I had to find another way., and I did. After lowering my own blood sugar to healthy levels with no meds and no insulin... and losing 20 lbs. with no effort... in a short 3 months... my conclusion is that the mainstream medical community does not have it right! If they did, there would be no need for this information. This book is about the easy and very accessible ways I got off the meds, controlled my numbers, and turned my health completely around in a very short amount of time. Far from being stupid, reading this book may be one of the smartest decisions you ever make.

A revolutionary, personalized guide to preventing heart disease based on genetic factors Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in America. It affects 81 million Americans and is the culprit in one of every two deaths in the United States. Most people think that they are not at risk of a heart attack if they control their cholesterol and blood pressure, but they aren’t aware of other major risk factors. The good news is that with the right information and strategies, heart attacks are preventable—even if heart disease runs in the family. In Beat the Heart Attack Gene, world-renowned cardiovascular specialists Bradley Bale, MD and Amy Doneen, ARNP, present a new model for understanding and preventing heart disease.
