By: Dr. LaKeischa W. McMillan

Description: Her 18 year journey with Diabetes began with a jolt. She recounts leaving the diabetic teaching class and not wanting to eat anything! All she had was a childhood memory of an aunt who would bake them the most decadent cakes but she dare not enjoy them herself because "her sugar" had already begun to stake it's claim on her eyesight and it was trying desperately to see what other organ systems it could claim. But as Donna understood more and more how the body works, and how food is fuel she has managed her diabetes for 18 years now and she is helping others to connect the dots of the role diet and exercise has and in turn she is helping them to live more optimal lives.
