I’ve lived with diabetes for nearly 25 years, which isn’t as tough as it sounds. Thanks to advances in science and medicine, the management of this chronic disease has gotten better and, even more important for people like me, easier.
That isn’t to say there aren’t challenges. But I’ve recently taken charge of my own wellness — something that’s been empowering and transformative. More than ever before, the power to manage my condition is in my own hands, in what I eat and how I live.
I wrote about my journey so far — and what’s prompted a new perspective on my health — in this guest post at the TEDMED blog.
