I was honored to be a contributor once again to the Winter 2023 iPain Living Magazine Edition. My first article on page 10 discussed how you personally handle the stressors in your life and how that is reflected in your pain management. In this Winter edition, I discuss how Type 2 Diabetes is actually a larger epidemic globally than Covid.
iPain Living Magazine delivers relevant information on chronic pain challenges, tips, tools, and resources that puts pain into context in peoples’ lives. If you are someone you know is suffering from chronic pain, you can subscribe to the quarterly magazine at www.ipainliving.org. This is year 7 of the magazine and I am very excited to be included.

In 2020, there were over 122 million people in the U.S. diagnosed with elevated blood glucose, 34 million with the diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes, and 88 million diagnosed with prediabetes, yet their hope for healthy living is thwarted by medical dogma, disinformation, misinformation, and missing information.
Disinformation, Misinformation, and Missing Information, which is abbreviated “DMMI”, fuels growing health illiteracy and unhealthy lifestyle choices. This drives not only increases in Type 2 diabetes but also cancer, cardiovascular diseases, COVID-19, and other illnesses considered lifestyle diseases.
As described in my 5th book, Your Health Is at Risk, a literate person in today’s world is aware that the traditional media and social media are swarming with intentional disinformation about many topics, from politics to finances, to health advice and diet plans. Literacy, critical thinking, and a tolerance for reading scientific material are absolutely necessary to detect such disinformation.
