Juvenation came along at just the right time for me. I had already decided to begin focusing on my health which I had let slip over the past few years. I had gained weight, become easily fatigued, was emotionally stressed out and had just about given up. Reading Dr. Rickard K Bernstein's book "Diabetes Solution" fueled my inspiration as I learned about Dr. Bernstein, himself a Type 1 diabetic for over 62 years who had taken control of his blood sugars and even reversed his complicatations. I began following his lo-carb diet and then signed up at a local gym to begin working out. It was at this time that I discovered and joined the Juvenation community. Seeing and communicating with all the young, newly-diagnosed Type diabetics became my main impetus to persist in my new diet, exercise and intense monitoring regimen. My goal has become to set a good example and show them -- my Juvenation friends, that it's not too late, even for a Type 1 of almost 40 years who didn't always take care of himself and who had deveoped heart disease, critical retinapathy and various meuropathetic complications. I am very happy about the progress I've made over the past 2-3 months, as well as my involvement with my new friends of all ages on Juvenation. Thanks everyone!!!
Paul, I don't think I knew the details of your story ... only that you had switched to low-carb. (: But, that's very encouraging to show that you can turn your health around at any age. Thanks for sharing your story!
