One Year Blogging!
Well, it’s already been one year since I started my blog. I wasn’t really sure what I expected this to turn into when I started it back in December 2015. Like most people, I had a busy life and knew I didn’t have much time to devote to this blog, but I knew I had a powerful … Read more

Almost 3 Years and No Meds
I’m glad to report that I’m coming up on 3 years with Type 1 Diabetes (“T1D”) and have yet to take any medication. Of those 3 years, the past two have been following the mostly raw vegan plant-based diet (“PBD”). As I’ve mentioned in my previous blog posts, I truly … Read more

Each June, I have my annual visit with my endocrinologist. For those who may not know, endocrinologists are the specialist doctors that diabetics typically go to once they are officially diagnosed with the disease.

My May 2016 blog post is going to center around the pros & cons of managing type 1 diabetes (“T1D”) without medication. As I’m sure you are aware, I’m a strong proponent of a more naturalistic approach to managing disease, however, I realize this may not be realistic for all.
The Elusive Search for Like Minded T1Ds
Since I … Read more
My April 2016 blog post is going to describe my general thoughts on the medical community and other haters of my cause. My experience with doctors as a non-insulin T1D has not been the most pleasant, but I do have much respect for the medical community as a whole.
I divided my blog post in 3 sections…the good, the bad … Read more
