Once Again, Thank You

thank you

I am not sure what I thought would happen when this blog was started.  The goal from the beginning was, and still is, to offer common sense solutions for the prevention and control of Type 2 Diabetes.  It was never about being the most popular or most read; it is about helping and encouraging you to take and keep control of a terrible disease one reader at a time.

Why take control?  Because you can.  And, the complications that Diabetes can bring if not controlled, can be devastating.

So, why thank you?  For the growth this blog has received during the last year.

In 2013 this blog was viewed 17,739 times.  Last December there were 383 views.  In December of 2013 there were 2,076 views.  5.4 times more views!  We have continued to do nothing to promote the blog – we wouldn’t know how, actually.  We believe that content will win readers.  And, if the content is good, you will share it.

We have nothing to say except thank you.  We will continue to provide unbiased information on medications and to encourage, cajole, and plead with you to prevent and control Type 2 Diabetes.  And, because weight is so closely linked with Diabetes, we will continue to promote weight loss.

Folks, there are no magic bullets for preventing or controlling Diabetes.  No oil – snake or otherwise.  No single pill.  No magic cures.  It’s a battle; a war that is fought meal by meal, snack by snack every day. It’s a war of choices.  Make enough right choices, and you prevent or control Diabetes and weight.

The War On Diabetes is the fight of your life for your life.  And, one that you can win.

As always, thank you for reading and sharing.


I am not a doctor or health professional. I am just a guy who is working everyday to control Type 2 Diabetes. My goal is to offer hope, help and solutions for day-to-day living for the diabetic. The disease can be controlled. It can be managed. And, you can do it!

    Well done on the increase in views Phil. It seems that the only way to ‘fully’ promote a blog, is to ‘like’ tens of thousands of other posts, and follow that many blogs too. Too much hassle, unless one is trying to make a living at it.
    You have had a great start, and I am sure that you will continue to grow. Thanks for all the help and advice this past year.
    Regards from England, Pete.

  2. Congrats Phil.. You have a wonderful blog keep up the great work…
