We're celebrating Divabetic's 11th Podcast Anniversary with musical inspiration from Toni Braxton. The seven-time Grammy Award-winner has sold over 70 million records and is one of the best-selling R&B artists of all time. When Toni Braxton was first diagnosed with systemic lupus in 2008, her doctors told her that she would need a heart transplant and might not ever perform again. "I remember being petrified," she said. "I was scared. I didn't know anything about lupus." Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can affect the joints, skin, brain, lungs, kidneys, and blood vessels. It can also lead to heart disease and kidney disease. Insulin resistance is increased in people with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Insulin resistance occurs when excess glucose in the blood reduces the ability of the cells to absorb and use blood sugar for energy. This increases the risk of developing prediabetes, and eventually, type 2 diabetes. Guests include Dr. Sara Reece, PharmD - NGMC, GME, Patricia Addie-Gentle RN, CDCES, Keith Anthony Fluitt, and Sonya Hogans. Hosted by Max 'Mr. Divabetic' Szadek.
