Purpose of Site

This website was created to focus on education and Type 2 diabetes management in order to help diabetics to better manage their diabetes. This website was also created to simplify the message of how to effectively manage your diabetes without overwhelming you with all the science (from our main site).


The primary purpose of this site is to provide diabetes education and awareness about Type 2 diabetes in order to support effective Type 2 diabetes management. 


Key Elements of a sound diabetes management and education strategy include:

-- Nutrition

-- Exercise

-- Blood glucose testing

-- Cleanse and detox

-- Supplementation

-- Doctor visits/Physical exams

-- Medications

-- Support

-- Education

Why Diabetes Education & Awareness Are So Important

Overview

When I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes (after surviving a diabetic coma), I was in total shock (see my story below). In addition, I was overwhelmed by all of the information and everything that I needed to do properly manage my diabetes and prevent the onset of major diabetic complications.


At the time I was diagnosed (in the hospital), I was not aware that I had been exhibiting some of the major signs (symptoms) of Type 2 diabetes, e.g. blurry vision, frequent urination, extreme thirst, very fatigued, weight gain, etc.  


I was also not aware that I had some of the major risk factors associated with Type 2 diabetes, e.g. weight gain, high cholesterol, African-American, poor eating habits,  sedentary lifestyle, etc..


In addition, I was not aware of how many people in my family and in the country had diabetes! And, I was certainly not aware of how serious a disease that diabetes was and the major complications that it caused!


So, I did what most engineers do when faced with a new problem. I started researching the disease. Needless to say, it was very frustrating and confusing. There was so much conflicting information that it made it difficult to figure out what foods to eat vs. not eat.


So, I went back to the basics of cell biology and disease pathology to figure out how the disease worked; and, then, reverse-engineered the process to figure out how to better manage my diabetes.


So, you see, being aware is very important when it comes to this disease. And, being educated about this disease is also very important.


Ironically, today, we provide diabetes educational products and tools (e.g. books, ebooks, tracking charts) and services (e.g. training, health coaching, workshops) to help diabetics cope with this disease.

About the Author

DeWayne McCulley is an engineer who almost died from a diabetic coma with a blood glucose of 1337 -- more than 1200 points above normal!


Fortunately, he was able to use his background in engineering and biochemistry to safely wean off the insulin and other drugs within 3.5 months. Needless to say, his doctors were shocked at his recovery.


After DeWayne returned to work, he joined the American Diabetes Association to help increase diabetes awareness and education. He ran 3 diabetic support groups and conducted diabetes education and training classes to hundreds of diabetics in the community and various churches.


With encouragement from his mother and daughter, and so many requests from the community, DeWayne became an author and continues to help diabetics around the world via his diabetes education and awareness programs. 


Author Sidebar: With the success of my diabetes books, ebooks and CDs/DVDs, we have been asked to provide online and onsite training to various health organizations and corporations.


We have also been asked to simplify the content on our web pages in describing diabetes, nutrition, meal planning, etc. -- without getting bogged down into the science, cell biology, etc.


As engineers, we tend to get carried away with the details and provide too much information, instead of focusing on just the education and diabetes management.


So, we will try our best to keep the message simple and concise without boring you with the science. :-)
