About

Hi! I’m Vince and I am diagnosed to have type 2 diabetes. But let me give you a brief history of my family and how I got this disease. My grandmother and her sister have diabetes. Among the siblings of  8, my father was the only one who has diabetes. He got it when he was 38. One of my uncles is now pre-diabetic in mid-50’s. In 2011, my twin brother was officially diagnosed to have a typed 2 diabetes. Beginning of 2012, my mother was diagnosed to be diabetic. At the beginning of January 2013, I was diagnosed to have diabetes.

It was actually a family tree of diabetic people. According to the doctor, statistically speaking one has a 90% chance to be diabetic if one of the parents is diabetic. It will be 100% chance if both parents are diabetic. Unfortunately, I can’t choose my parents nor the blood that flows through my body. But, I can do something about it.

I created this website to open up the eyes of the people who seem to lose hope after diagnosed to have diabetes. Apart from this, I also want to start an online community of diabetic people to have exchange of wisdom, ideas, tips and tricks in the fight against diabetes.

    Hi! I was diagnosed to have diabetes in 2011. For about a year, I was taking Diamicron for maintenance. Then somebody told me about this formulation made from Philippine minerals by a Filipino lady doctor. Since I started taking it in 2012, I have not taken any maintenance medicine. My FBS has been normal since then.

    I invite you to check out my website: http://www.wellnessfromphilippineminerals.com and check out the video on diabetes.

      I haven’t personally tried that. But yes, Diamicron is a usual meds coupled with metformin.

      Thanks for the info. I must be clear however, that I haven’t tried that yet and cannot give comments on that.

      It is high for Fasting Blood Sugar. But if it is your blood sugar 2 hours after meal, that is within the normal range.

    I’m on my 18th year now of being diabetic. I’m using insullin now and I have Diabetic Retinopathy,CKD, with high blood pressure. I wan to know if I still have the chance to lower my glucose level. Pls help.

      Thank you for commenting… Well, first and foremost, I am not a doctor (please read my disclosure) so I cannot say if you can lower it or not. However, there are “universal advices” that we follow if you are diabetic. Following it does help a lot. First, proper and healthy diet. Most diabetic people fail on this and to my surprise, they still love softdrinks. Quit table spoon sugar, and that’s a big help already. Control your carbo intake. Be careful though because you are on insulin. So better consult your doctor how much carbo you should take if you already quit table spoon sugar.

      Then, do exercise. 30 minutes walk a day can already help a lot. Since you are highblood, too much exercise at once is also not good. Please consult your fitness instructor for that. But again, simple exercise does help.

      Religiously take meds as per the doctor’s advise.

      Then my personal advise, take some proven food supplement. Why? Because most of your meds are synthetic. Some herbal meds (better investigate more on this) are very effective in taking care of your kidneys and liver from detrimental effect of those synthetic meds. I personally use C24/7 of AIM Global. It’s a product of Nature’s Way. Some reports says, MX3 also do a good job.
