Happy go lucky diabetic Bob Hawkinson shares the “joy” in his disease

Diabetes. Just hearing the word sends shudders up and down the spine of millions of people who have been diagnosed with this terrible disease. Many people think it is a death sentence or a life filled with health struggles that will rob you of the joy and happiness you hoped for in your life. But my next podcast interview guest was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes as an infant and today stands proudly to proclaim there is “joy” in having diabetes and living with it. We hear his amazing story today.

In Episode 220 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear the positive and uplifting message from Bob Hawkinson who has authored a fabulous new book entitled The Joy Of Diabetes. After suffering from the mumps as a baby, Bob contracted juvenile diabetes and has been dealing with it for the past four decades. His decision to be JOYFUL about his diabetes is the premise of how he is able to control it so well–that and his low-carb diet, too! Listen in today for this fascinating story of triumph in the face of adversity.
