diabetespowershow Podcast
Another great podcast hosted by LibSyn.com

On today's DiabetesPowerShow, Charlie Cherry, Chris Moore, Theresa Moore, Chris Daniel, and our official behind-the-scenes announcer, Lori Cherry, celebrate ten years…that's right…a full decade of Diabetes podcasting. In celebration of this milestone, we indulge ourselves, as we reminisce about the amazing adventure this show has been for us. We have met so many incredible people from all around the world in the Diabetes community. We have traveled from coast to coast, attending Diabetes events as ambassadors for not only DiabetesPowerShow, but for the Diabetes community at large.

On August 28, 2006, DiabetesPowerShow was born. When we started, we were not 100% sure there would be a show number 2, or that we would be around the following month. Here we are, August 28, 2016, and we are going stronger than ever!

Very few podcasts that involve 2 or more co-hosts survive more than a few episodes. We started in the very beginning of the new technology called ‘podcasting’. Out of the first wave of thousands of podcasts, created at that time, covering a variety of topics, (now there are millions) there are just a handful of remaining ‘original' podcasters. We proudly count ourselves among that small group of people. The five of us have developed a bond and friendship that is unbreakable. After 10 years, whether the microphones are turned on or off, we can almost read each other’s minds, and finish each other’s sentences. DiabetesPowerShow is the longest consistently-running Diabetes related podcast in the world. We are committed to taking this show into the future, as we all work towards a cure for this thing called Diabetes.

Here on DiabetesPowerShow, we have often said that "taking good care of yourself with Diabetes is not rocket science"...well...on today's show, we actually put that theory to the test...with an actual Rocket Scientist...really...a real live NASA Rocket Scientist!

Ernie Prado serves as a Technical Project Manager at NASA's Johnson Space Center in the Space Vehicle Mockup Facility (SVMF) where astronauts train prior to spaceflight. At the SVMF, he leads projects to create, maintain, and upgrade full-size International Space Station trainers and mockups that astronauts will use during the course of their careers. In addition to his work at NASA, he is involved in manufacturing large-scale 3D Printers. Ernie holds Bachelor of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering & Aeronautical Sciences and Engineering from UC Davis. He was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 15, and has been on an insulin pump for the past five years. He loves to educate others about Diabetes, and hopes to inspire fellow T1Ds to never stop chasing their dreams.

On today's DiabetesPowerShow, Charlie Cherry, Chris Moore, Theresa Moore, and Chris Daniel talk about Pets with Diabetes. This episode is dedicated to Chris Moore's Daughter, Angelica, whose sweet puppy passed away last weekend. 

We welcome 3 special guests in studio:

Nicholas Vitale DVM

Nicholas grew up in Metro Detroit, and knew from a young age that he wanted to, some day, become a veterinarian. He attended undergraduate studies at Michigan State University, and holds a degree in Zoo and Aquarium Science. He then attended veterinary school, also at Michigan State, and graduated in 2011. Nicholas originally went into veterinary medicine because he wanted to be a zoo veterinarian. However, as things and interests changed, he decided that he wanted to become a pathologist. Post veterinary school, he attended and began a Residency in Anatomic Pathology at Cornell University.

After approximately one year, Nicholas decided that pathology was not where he wanted to be in the veterinary medicine world. He moved back home, where he spent another year in Detroit, practicing small animal medicine. Nicholas moved to Las Vegas three years ago, and has been practicing at Desert Inn Animal Hospital ever since. Currently, he is preparing for, and studying to sit for his board accreditation, through the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners.

When not working, Nicholas spends a lot of his free time volunteering, and being with friends. He is highly involved with The Desert Tortoise Foundation, as well as The Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, and with Desert Tortoise Research and Health Monitoring. He is also involved with legal cases with Clark County Animal Control. He has a "zoo" at home, including a French Bulldog named Odin, two parrots, Finn and Jager, two ferrets, Reason and Single, as well as a tiny desert tortoise, nameless, and a bearded dragon, who is also nameless.



Norma Silverman

Norma is a cat lover, who rescued and adopted ‘Nutmeg’. She joins us in studio, to share her experiences with the diagnosis, treatment, and ultimately the loss of her special friend, due to complications from Diabetes.

Jim Holtz RN

Jim is Theresa’s boss in the Hospital Emergency Room. He is a Registered Nurse, and Manager of Critical Care. He has many years of experience as a Medical Professional.

Jim tells us how frustrating it was, as a professional who cares for people in the hospital, not to recognize the signs and symptoms of Diabetes in ‘Morgan’ and ‘Gabby’, his four-legged friends at home.

What are the odds…not just one dog with Diabetes…but two?

Hypoglycemia..."The Boogeyman under the bed"...

Everything you ever wanted to know about Hypoglycemia, but were afraid to ask…
Today on DiabetesPowerShow, we ask one of the finest Endocrinologists in the country, Dr. C. R. Kannan, the tough questions about this dreadful condition. Somehow, the DPS team manages to produce a fun, and funny show involving a very serious topic, Hypoglycemia, while learning more than we ever knew about it.


Joining us today in studio, C. R. Kannan, M. D.

Dr. Kannan is presently Director of Endocrinology and Metabolism at Red Rock Medical Center in Las Vegas.  He served as Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Nevada School of Medicine in Las Vegas from 2009 to 2013, with teaching and patient responsibilities. He was also Consultant in Endocrinology at Southwest Medical Associates in Las Vegas, from 2003 to 2010.

He moved to Nevada in 2003, following many years of academic and clinical practice in Chicago. He is the former Chairman of Endocrinology at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, and Associate Chairman of Endocrinology at Rush Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center. He was responsible for the combined Endocrinology Fellowship Program of Rush Presbyterian and Cook County Hospitals.  He is a tenured Professor of Medicine at Rush University, Chicago. During his tenure at Cook County and Rush Presbyterian, he won the Teacher of the Year Award ten (10) times.

He has single-authored four (4) medical textbooks, and has served as an editor of the Year Book of Endocrinology for 15 years.  He has also co-authored several original articles in peer-reviewed journals.


DiabetesPowerShow Co-Host, Chris Daniel, who has Type One Diabetes, often experiences Hypoglycemia Unawareness. So when he repels off of a 300 foot cliff, his glucose numbers have to be in check. Last weekend, Chris tested his adventuresome skills at beautiful Lake Powell, where he pushed himself to the limit. Check out pics at DiabetesPowerShow.com
