This episode is inspired by an unsung hero in diabetes management, Miss Piggy! A pork may not sound too diva, but we have pigs to thank for the availability of insulin up until the 1980’s.

Join the happiest healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic as he hogs the spotlight with self-care solutions for women touched by diabetes. This pen of real talk includes a frank discussion of checking your blood sugar with our Angels of Diabetes Outreach: Jessica Issler, RD, CDE (Norfolk, VA), Judi Wilcox, RD, CDE (Hollywood, FL) and Janice Harris, RN, BSN, CDE (Washington, DC); a McDonald’s menu review and a Food Aisle Face-off between porridge and oatmeal. Plus, celebrity makeup artist Kiauna Hunt stops in for Makeover in a Minute, Mama Rose Marie unveils her latest self-care commentary and real NYC diva Phyllis J. plays our Diabetes Numerology Game. Tune in, call in or visit the chat room to get inspired or to give a shout-out.

Divabetic was inspired by the late music legend, Luther Vandross and created in 2005 by Max ‘Mr. Divabetic’ Szadek, who, as Vandross’ assistant of 14 years, witnessed his boss, mentor, and friend struggle in silence and solitude with the diabetes and its related complications. Since its inception, Divabetic has presented outreach programs in 15 major U.S. cities, reaching hundreds of thousands of women, their families and health care professionals.
