As a young man I always felt healthy. I lived on a farm, always worked hard and had no medical challenges. The years went by and life was great until one day I felt weak and sick. My health went from bad to worse and I started to experience extreme thirst, dizziness, loss of appetite and dramatic weight loss.

I visited my doctor for tests and in November, 1974 was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I always thought I was healthy and nothing was ever going to happen to me. All of a sudden I was shocked and faced with a life-long medical challenge.

Now, after 44 + years of Diabetes and understanding the affect it has on body organs I have decided to share my story with the world. Come on this journey with me and learn how you can stay reasonably healthy for your lifetime!
