About Total Diabetes Wellness

Total Diabetes Wellness focuses on reversing type 2 diabetes rather than managing it with medication. We want your blood sugar levels to become stable through healthy eating and positive lifestyle changes without needing diabetes medications. More specifically, we want your blood sugar levels to be in the normal, non-diabetic range.

Pharmaceutical companies sponsor many well-respected diabetes organizations. As a result, their information often focuses on managing type 2 diabetes, which likely requires being dependent on diabetes medications for the rest of your life.

We help you understand diabetes and reverse your type 2 diabetes. Some of our information may not align with these large diabetes organizations. This is because our end goal is to reverse your diabetes, not maintain it with prescription medicine.

Dana - Founder & Product Manager

Dana, co-founder of Total Diabetes Wellness

My name is Dana. I have been a teacher for most of my career. I have a passion for helping others be successful at whatever their goals may be. Health and fitness are important to me, I am an ISSA certified personal trainer specializing in nutrition and diabetes.

I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in March 2017 with an HbA1c of 12.9 (324 mg/dL). Using diet alone, I lowered my blood sugar to 120 mg/dL in less than two weeks! After gaining control of my diabetes, I explored many diets in search of the best overall plan for myself and my family.

I was surprised and frustrated to find so much conflicting information about diabetes. Determined not to let diabetes affect my quality of life, I spent countless hours sorting through websites, books, and articles reviewing current scientific research about diabetes. My journey is what motivated me to create Total Diabetes Wellness. I don’t want you to experience the same frustration I experienced when developing a plan. Instead, I want to provide a clear, easy-to-follow, and helpful plan to help others find success in controlling and reversing diabetes.

Almost three years after my diagnosis of type 2 diabetes, I found I have latent autoimmune diabetes (LADA), not type 2 diabetes. Ultimately the type of diabetes I have isn’t reversible, and I am now insulin-dependent. However, I have significantly lowered the amount of insulin I need and consistently maintain an HbA1c in the 5s by following the information on Total Diabetes Wellness.

Tami - Content Writer & Web Designer

Tami, co-founder of Total Diabetes Wellness

Hi! I’m Tami. Before coming to work for Total Diabetes Wellness, I worked for 15 years as a designer and seamstress. I started in Los Angeles working for several theaters and movie studios, and then later, I ran my own business selling personalized handmade products.

I work “behind the scenes,” at Total Diabetes Wellness researching and writing science-based content, creating and maintaining the website, and participating in the overall planning and development of the business’s vision. I also have several nutrition and personal training certifications. 

Knowing what it’s like to have a busy life, it’s important to create a website where information is presented in a way that is easy to understand.  I am excited to share information and ideas to help you (and your family) be healthier, become happier, and spend more quality time together.
