    Thank you for featuring Bob. I admire his philosophies very much, no-nonsense and look at his life! Self-responsibility, self-care and that diabetes is not the center of his life. He has a great attitude and will. Thank you Bob, for the inspiration as a parent of a child with Type 1.

    I LOVE this interview! Amy, can you interview more long-term diabetics for us? Bob is very inspirational. And I liked what Penny said above, “diabetes is not the center of his life.” Very important.

    He has alot of Self Control and Self Discipline as well

    There was an interesting presentation at the Ancestral Health Symposium that discussed the pre insulin regime for diabetics.
    You may enjoy Dr Andreas Eenfeldt’s presentation
    During the talk he mentions a 1917 Diabetes cookbook
    There is an online copy here that’s worth looking at
