What is an MBA doing blogging about type 2 diabetes? If you have diabetes, you know that taking care of your condition can cost a small (or large) fortune. Robert Rister is also a formulator of natural products, an consultant to companies on regulatory issues, and the author of five printed books and over 30 ebooks on diabetes and other health concerns.
Robert found out he was a diabetic in a shocking manner. Despite biking 150 miles a week after work and getting lots of exercise working on a farm, plus getting good reports on his physicals, one day Robert suddenly found he was blind. ER doctors discovered his sugars were over 500 mg/dl and he was dehydrated and near death, this happening just six weeks after a complete physical had found nothing. Robert regained his sight and is now free of diabetic complications--but still has to be vigilant every day. Robert writes about the things type 2 diabetics need to know to keep their symptoms under control while living (and even eating) well.
