Gary Hall Jr. on Diabetes Public Awareness
dLife continues to grow. Congratulations to those that have made this happen, particularly Howard Steinberg. This has been a huge undertaking for him and it has been a pleasure to see the success that he has worked so hard for. My only regret is that I haven't been more involved. But I am busy with my own projects. Next on the list is the Children's Congress for the JDRF in Washington, DC. I am looking forward to creating more public awareness about diabetes and the burden that it puts on society. I will tell you about our progress in my next column.
I have been hard at work re-creating The Race Club site. Visit us at www.theraceclub.net to see the new look. Camp Race Club opens our innovative training program to swimmers of all levels and we have already booked up the first couple of months. So, thank you for the support. The camp is set in Islamorada, Florida, a tropical paradise conducive to an athlete's pursuit of active lifestyle. Camp Race Club will provide everyone that attends a wonderful time. Some of the areas that we cover thoroughly at the camp is diet and exercise. I owe a great deal to the many diabetes educators and dietitians that have provided me with an outstanding knowledge of diabetes management that so closely applies to athletic performance. Thank you.
Keep your levels in check. Never give up. Your diabetes is only as bad as you allow it to be. It's up to you.
Gary Hall, Jr.

Years before I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, The Other Half came out of a doctor's appointment with a diagnosis of "borderline diabetes" and an ADA exchange diet sheet. His health insurance agency followed up on the diagnosis with a glucometer and test strips. After a year or so of trying to follow the diet plan and test his glucose levels, things appeared to be back in "normal" range, and stood there until a couple of years after my own diagnosis.
