About this Book

Drawing from extensive experience as a Christian diabetic and former counselor, the author provides practical and spiritual guidance for those managing Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes, all infused with a healthy dose of humor.

While Type 1 Diabetes is a long-standing condition, Type 2 Diabetes has rapidly reached epidemic levels globally in recent decades. Lifestyle advice is often overshadowed by the latest medications and weight loss promises, yet long-term effects remain unmeasured, and weight regain after stopping medication is common. This book addresses the lifestyle gaps for both types, offering Christian-based reasoning and motivation.

Diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age twelve and drawing from experience as a Christian counselor and administrator, the author offers an honest look at living successfully with diabetes. The book combines experiential advice with encouragement from a Christian perspective, supported by Biblical references. It includes well-researched medical information, featuring Q&A interviews with medical and science professionals, as well as a revealing survey of Type 2 diabetics.

The author also shares a personal journey from atheism to Christian faith, highlighting the crucial role of faith in overcoming life's challenges with a constructive attitude. Humor, seen as a gift from God, plays a significant role in the narrative, offering a self-effacing and relatable touch. While terms like "unique" and "transparent" are often overused, they genuinely describe this much-needed project.
