Pow! Man knocks down diabetes!

Overcoming type 2 diabetes requires an aggressive approach. This means vigorously tackling those habits that make it easy for diabetes to sneak up on us. Or even better, knocking down the disease before it gets to us, which is possible if we know the warning signs.

Our featured lifestyle hero, Stephan, had an impressive case of metabolic syndrome plus a strong family history of diabetes and heart disease.

Fortunately, one of his first encounters was with a Providence diabetes educator, Susanna Reiner RN, CDE. She counseled Stephan about the power of a whole-food Mediterranean style diet and exercise to reverse type 2 diabetes, and handed him Dr. Miles Hassell's book, Good Food, Great Medicine. Stephan took it from there.
