About Tavis

Type 2 diabetes is a serious, life-long disease that affects how your body handles sugar. It’s becoming more and more common, especially among adults. If you have prediabetes – which means you have a higher-than-normal chance of developing type 2 diabetes – or if you’ve been told by your doctor that you have type 2 diabetes, it’s important to learn everything you can about the condition so you can manage it as well as possible.

I started this blog website to help people with type 2 diabetes live better lives. In these pages, you’ll find information and advice about all aspects of living with type 2 diabetes, from food and exercise to medication and coping strategies. So please take a look around – and feel free to share your own tips and experiences in the comments section.

Who Am I?

Let me introduce myself. Hi, my name is Tavis and welcome to livingwithtype2diabetes.com.  I live in Atlanta, Georgia, in the south of the USA. When I am not online, I like to get out of the city and travel around the country (especially to a beach), I like to read and my favorite genres of music is Jazz, R&B and Hip-Hop. These days I mostly listen to the instrumental versions of these genres.

Anyway, I acquired a bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Management and in my later years, I have also taken up a love for healthy living since being diagnosed with Diabetes. My attraction to eating healthier foods, being more aware of my situation and living better did not come naturally. I am used to eating any and everything I wanted, when I wanted, and however much I wanted without a care in the world with very little physical activity to balance things out.

It Finally Shows Its Face

My journey to become more conscious of my eating habits and overall health started after several trips to the medical clinic for your basic routine check-ups just to make sure everything was doing o.k. For about a year, I am hearing from the nurse that I was borderline diabetic but that didn’t bother me. I did not take this very seriously and I kept my same destructive diet of just eating whatever tickled my fancy.

Then, the big day came when I finally did it. On a routine visit one day, the nurse finally diagnosed me as having type 2 diabetes and prescribed me some Metformin. Eating any and everything on the menu and lacking exercise just didn’t pay off.

I was still slow to get on the road to this journey of living healthier for myself, but I knew I had to make a start. Diabetes, if out of control can trigger plenty other diseases and complications in the future and this bothered me. I would eat more veggies and less salt at times. If I ate fast food or something that I knew would upset my diabetes, I would eat fewer portions. I would even try to walk more. Slowly but surely, through research, a desire to live longer and live to the fullest, I started to make changes in my lifestyle that feels good and changes that I could be proud of.

My Goal to Help Others

Now, to help me along my way and to stay on track, I have a goal to empower others in with valuable information that can stand to be life changing. Through the right eating habits, more physical activity, as well as being in ‘the know’ on topics involving diabetes, not only can we know how not to agitate this illness, but we can reverse type 2 diabetes altogether.

If you or someone you know has type 2 diabetes, it’s important to be as proactive as possible in managing the condition. A healthy diet and regular exercise are key elements in keeping diabetes under control. And, of course, staying informed and up-to-date on the latest information and research is also crucial.

At livingwithtype2diabetes.com, we aim to provide you with the resources and information you need to live a long, healthy life with type 2 diabetes. We’ll explore topics like healthy eating, exercise, and diabetes management, so that you can feel confident and in control of your condition.
