About – Why and Who

This blog was started to offer you hope, encouragement and education as you fight to control Type 2 Diabetes.  Make no mistake, it is a fight – perhaps the fight of your life!  Diabetes is a slow and powerful foe destroying organs and lives if left alone.  But, we aren’t going to do that, are we?  I want to help you fight the disease…for you to know you are not alone and you can control it; manage it and be victorious.

Phil Ruggiero – Three years ago when I was diagnosed as a diabetic, I was frightened to say the least. This blog is how I went from being incredibly frightened to controlling the diesase.  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. To be your cheerleader in your fight against diabetes because you can WIN.

You can contact Phil through email.

Katherine King – Let me introduce you to Katherine – America’s Diabetes Pharmacist. Yes, that’s a bit tongue in cheek, but everyday more and more people are turning to her wonderful explanations about the main medications used to treat Diabetes.  Katherine is a licensed pharmacist who manages the pharmacy department in a large retail location. This means she knows your questions and concerns because many of her patients are – you guessed it – Diabetics.   While you have your own pharmacist to talk with, you have also become a virtual patient of her’s; she takes your success in fighting Diabetes very seriously.

You can contact Katherine through email.

    Phil, thanks for the re-blog, and for ‘visiting’ me in England. Good work with this Diabetes Help blog, and interesting too, keep going. This is the disease of the next generation, and is becoming rampant in the U.K.- Best wishes- Pete.
