Ex-diabetic Engineer Shocks the Medical World: Survives Coma and Beats Diabetes!

An engineer on the brink of death, went into a diabetic coma with a blood sugar level of 1337 (more than 1200 points above normal) and lived to tell about it.

DeWayne McCulley was able to overcome severe hyperglycemia, hypertriglyceridemia, two blood clots, pneumonia, high cholesterol, and four insulin shots a day, He used his engineering and biochemistry background to repair his body and methodically and completely wean himself off the insulin, Coumadin and other drugs; and, eventually, write the now-acclaimed and top-selling book Death to Diabetes.

McCulley lowered his average blood glucose level and his hemoglobin A1C to the normal ranges (92 mg/dl, 4.4%) while losing 55 pounds and reversing his diabetes within 4 months. That was eight years ago and today he is still drug-free with an average blood glucose level of 94.2 mg/dl.

McCulley, a now-retired Xerox engineer and Penn State graduate, credits his recovery to God, his doctors/nurses, his mother, and his daughter (Cynthia). But, during his recovery, McCulley was unable to find a book that provided a systematic approach for fighting this disease. When he couldn’t get clear answers to what foods he should eat or not eat, McCulley used his training as an engineer to research the latest medical studies and test/analyze his blood several times a day to beat this disease.

When the American Diabetes Association heard about McCulley’s story, the local director invited him to join one of their diabetic support groups, where he shared his story and eventually was asked to facilitate the meetings for almost two years. Hearing of McCulley’s success and the success of other Type 2 diabetics, various churches and other community groups asked McCulley to share his story with their members. When diabetics used some of his methods and experienced positive and measurable results, they encouraged him to write a book to share his story beyond the immediate community.

With additional encouragement from his daughter, his mother, his job, the local churches, the healthcare industry, and the two diabetic support groups he was facilitating, McCulley decided to share the information and research he had collected over the years. In October 2005, McCulley published the book, Death to Diabetes – The 6 Stages of Type 2 Diabetes Control and Reversal.

Here are some of the doctors who provided feedback about the book:

“Some of my patients are very excited about your program – because it works! Some of them are reducing their medication and others are coming off their medication.” Dr. W. Bayer, Rochester, NY

“McCulley's diabetes program is phenomenal! -- he's done something that the experts said was impossible. There's something about those engineers . . .” Dr. D. Courtney, Pittsburgh, PA

“This book is empowering. I plan to keep this book handy in my office.” Dr. J.B. Grossman, Journal of the National Medical Association (JNMA)

“This is a great book, very thorough and well-written. Buy the book!” Dr. Vagnini, NYC

“Your book is great. Whenever I see a diabetic, I recommend your book to them. ” Dr. Kalidas, Florida

McCulley says “I was blessed with strong parents and teachers who gave me this strong work ethic and belief that I could do anything – if I really applied myself. And, if my mother, sister and my daughter hadn’t taken care of me when I got out of the hospital, I would still be diabetic today – or, even, dead.”

The book Death to Diabetes (ISBN 0977360741) is one of the few diabetes books that looks at diabetes at the cellular level and from several aspects of medical science, including pathology, etiology, and epidemiology. The book also looks at diabetes from the aspect of several engineering sciences including reverse engineering, failure modes & effects analysis, root cause analysis, statistical engineering analysis, meta analysis, and process engineering.

The book provides a concise and easy-to-read set of procedures for a Type 2 diabetic to customize to his/her needs and get their diabetes under control within three months. Some diabetics even have the opportunity to completely reverse their diabetes and beat the disease.

The key benefits to following the “Death to Diabetes” wellness program include:
• Lower your blood glucose level to the normal range within days.
• Increase your energy level, and avoid the cravings and highs and lows associated with eating processed foods.
• Lose weight (fat) by turning your body into a fat-burning machine.
• Reduce the belly fat, which is hard to get rid of following conventional diets.
• Save thousands of dollars from drugs, more drugs, surgeries, hospital stays, and high healthcare insurance premiums.
• Save hundreds and even thousands of dollars from grocery-shopping and food bills.
• Learn how to transform your favorite foods into healthier foods, so that you can enjoy eating without the anxiety.
• Enjoy weddings, picnics, birthday parties, and other social events – because the book teaches you how to eat before and after these events to limit the damage to your health.
• Enjoy a better sex life, because the wellness program addresses circulatory issues that have proven to be one of the primary problems associated with sexual dysfunction.
• Look younger and so much better that your friends think that you have had a facelift or liposuction!
• Prevent the complications of diabetes, including heart attack, stroke, blindness, amputation, gum disease, and kidney failure.

Here are a few of the hundreds of testimonials from diabetics and non-diabetics:

“My doctor told me that all signs of my diabetes were gone! And, the pain in my foot from the neuropathy is gone.” D. Carter, ex-diabetic

“I got this book “Death to Diabetes” for a relative and she loved it so much she got one for her doctor! Her doctor loves “Death to Diabetes” too! Her glucose readings have been steadily returning to normal ranges and she is off oral diabetic meds and is no longer on daily insulin injections. All this within 6 months of reeducating herself to the truth. This is truly DEATH to DIABETES!!! Follow it, don’t question it, and see the results for yourself!!” V. Koehler

“My husband has diabetes and up until recently it has been uncontrollable, so we've been reading book after book on the subject. When I purchased "Death to Diabetes", it was like none other in scope … This is the one book that every diabetic should read.” G. Martin (Houston, TX)

“My daughter sent me two books and while I refer to the other occasionally, this book “Death to Diabetes” set me in the direction of getting off my meds and reversing my diabetic condition. A MUST READ for all diabetics, newly diagnosed or long term. I loved it.” Janeice Pennington (Hawaii)

“I recommend this book (“Death to Diabetes”) not only to all diabetics but to anyone who is suffering from his or her unhealthy lifestyle. Although Mr. McCulley's theories are not strictly in line with current medical thinking, his advice for changing our lives for the better is right on. Over half of all Type 2 diabetics who strictly follow his advice will be cured of their diabetes problem, as well as lowering their cholesterol and blood pressure. Don't miss out on this book.” Dr. William Bayer, MD (Rochester, NY)

McCulley’s workshops and seminars have been well-received because of the thoroughness of his lectures and his ability to use humor and his personal stories to connect with other diabetics. You can visit YouTube.com to view some of his video clips from medical conferences, lectures, and radio interviews.

McCulley states: “You can beat your diabetes, and you can reverse the complications of Type 2 diabetes – if you are armed with the proper knowledge and the drive to want to live a healthier life.”

McCulley says emphatically: “You can become a victor of wellness, and stop being a victim of illness – it’s all up to you.”

McCulley’s book is now one of the top-selling diabetes books on Amazon.com, and he now has customers in the United Kingdom, India, Australia, China, Africa and South America.

Recently, McCulley has written a cookbook (with his daughter’s help), and books on juicing, depression, boot camp, and preventing/recovering from heart attacks/strokes. He is also available for speaking engagements, workshops and corporate wellness training.
