Chrystal Leary is extremely active online spreading education and awareness among the African American population.
Chrystal lives in the Los Angeles, CA, area and was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes just over five years ago.
Since then, she’s quickly stepped up to her new role as an advocate, busting myths, countering stereotypes and working to educate folks at her blog, The Sexy Diabetic. In her day job, Chrystal is a chemist (!), working in the personal care/cosmetic industry.
Today, Chrystal shares her own story via Diabetes Mine as a guest blogger sharing some of the important race-related issues that diabetes brings to the table.
