A Letter to the Newly Diagnosed Type 2 Diabetic

More than 5,000 Americans are diagnosed with diabetes, every day.

Today’s guest post is from award-winning author and diabetes expert, Wil Dubois. Will is the author of Taming the Tiger: Your first year with diabetes, a first year survival guide, a recognized expert on the subject of diabetes, and a frequent contributor to the dLife website.

As the chef in charge of our Haute & Healthy Diabetic-Friendly meal plan, here at hautemealz.com, this post is especially important to me. I wish it had been around 15 years ago!

If you, or someone you know has been recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, please read and share this important information!
