Penguins Win the Stanley Cup Again!
Right on the heels of a 2nd consecutive Stanley Cup Championship for the Pittsburgh Penguins (I am a Pittsburgher), I was all ready to write up a raw raw post talking about all of the great things that a plant-based diet affords the general population.

The Diabetes Summit was truly eye-opening. One of the very interesting segments was from a parent who is raising a T1D child. I always say that my battle is half as difficult as those that a parent of a T1D child must face. His name is RD Dikeman, and he has a very interesting story to share.

Understanding disease is never an easy task. When I was first diagnosed in early 2014, the doctors made type 1 diabetes sound so simple to me. They told me that my beta cells were being attacked and that I will soon no longer have the ability to create insulin on my own.

One of the hardest parts of managing type 1 diabetes without medication is staying disciplined while traveling. Whether it’s a business trip or a vacation, they both present many opportunities for me to get off the wagon.
I’m Only Human
I know many of you that follow my blog and are educated on T1D probably think that I’m part human, … Read more
I thought a good post would be to talk about the laundry list of problems that dairy products (i.e. cow’s milk, cow’s milk based yogurt and cheese) can cause . Before I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (“T1D”) in 2014, dairy products were staple of my diet including cow’s milk in my cereal for breakfast, a yogurt everyday and … Read more
I wanted to create a blog post that could try and help parents with type 1 diabetic children, or also known as juvenile diabetes. It’s one thing to hear of other adults with T1D, but I feel so much worse every time I hear of a new child becoming diagnosed with the disease.

There is no doubt that diet has the most significant influence on my body in my effort to stay off of medication as a Type 1 Diabetic (officially just passed 2.5 years no meds!). However, I personally believe one has to watch other lifestyle and environmental factors as well in order to optimize their health and limit toxins.
