Diabetes Advocate EK Ray To Speak With Celebrity Chef Charles Mattocks On WAEC Love 860 AM Radio

EK Ray Talks To Chef Charles Mattocks About Nearly Losing His Life To Diabetes on Altanta’s Inspirational Talk Radio: WAEC Love 860 AM

July 20, 2012 - PRLog -- Washington, DC - EK was dangerously ill with diabetes – and he didn’t know it. Now 150 pounds lighter, he’s a healthy fitness enthusiast. The road ahead looks long and inviting, even without the cheeseburgers and fries he loves.

With a family history of diabetes, EK knew he had to start paying attention to his health and cut back on the fast foods he was consuming during hectic workdays. After suddenly feeling weak and light-headed, he finally went for tests, which confirmed he had type 2 diabetes.

Speaking on his introduction to diabetes and falling ill:

“I was immediately put on insulin – just as my body was starting to shut down from diabetic ketoacidosis,” EK said.  “I was rushed to the hospital where I stayed for a week. I realized I had put my life in peril.”

EK eventually began to recover. Soon he began the challenging road to health by learning how to eat properly and exercise regularly. “I learned a lot from my diabetic educator, and Merck provided information on treatment options and tips on how to maintain my blood-sugar level, so I could take care of myself properly.”

Because of EK's remarkable transformation, he’s reduced his need for medication. Under the guidance of his doctor and with input from Merck, he’s gone from four to five shots of insulin a day to a twice-daily combination of oral medications.

With a healthy body and a great attitude, EK now wants to help others. “I’ll even go shopping with my friends to help them buy healthier food. I try to open their eyes.”
