DeWayne McCulley is an ex-diabetic engineer who survived a near-death and coma experience with a blood glucose level of 1337 -- more than a thousand points above normal. Despite hyperglycemia, dehydration, two blood clots, high cholesterol, pneumonia and four insulin shots a day, DeWayne was able to use his engineering and biochemistry background to methodically and completely wean himself off the insulin, Coumadin and other drugs to lower his average glucose level and his hemoglobin A1C to normal levels (92.5 mg/dl, 4.5%), reversing his diabetes, losing over 50 pounds, and requiring no drugs of any kind in less than 6 months. He credits his recovery to God, his doctors and nurses, his mother, his daughter, a set of unexplained accidents (blessings), and his engineering background. With a lot of encouragement from his daughter, his mother and various people from work, the local churches, people in the wellness industry, and the two diabetic support groups he was facilitating, DeWayne decided to write a book that explains the real root causes of diabetes and how to beat the disease (and other related complications). His hope is that this book will inspire you the way he was inspired -- by people he would never have met if it wasn’t for his experience with diabetes. DeWayne currently works as an engineer for a Fortune 500 company and as a community health advocate, providing presentations to families, churches, wellness groups, and other community groups about diabetes, nutrition, spiritual health, heart disease and stroke.
