Stay on Track for a Long & Healthy Life


When I was diagnosed with diabetes, I had no idea the journey I would embark upon.

That I would marry my diabetic boyfriend, find a diabetic doctor, and meet an amazing cook who is diabetic! And that I would be called to help other people with diabetes. .

If you’ve been diagnosed recently, or just stuck in a rut and would like to make a change, get off medication, and feel a whole lot better, you’ve come to the right place.  It’s time to #DeRail Diabetes.

Letter from Kim



Opposing opinions thrive and diabetics suffer.

We struggle, trying to figure things out on Google, at libraries, talking to dieticians and doctors…and still aren’t sure exactly what to do.  Or why!

At DeRail Diabetes, we are in the trenches with you.  I am a diabetic who’s married to a diabetic, our Cook is diabetic, as is our Doctor.  We getchoo.

Our perspective comes from living it every day. With success.  We are thrilled you are here and welcome you to our community.

- Love Kim

Kim and I had our initial visit, and it was extremely eye-opening! I realized what the story is behind insulin resistance, and made a decision to eliminate all white food. (Except cauliflower!) Since our meeting I have lost 5 pounds, and love that I can have a glass of wine now and then.

My work with Kim brought me insight into better blood sugar control and peace of mind for my family.

-Danny Brower

Eating the DeRail Diabetes way has been unbelievable. Shocking. My blood sugar has been right in range, the food is fantastic, and I lost 15 pounds! I didn’t do it to lose weight, I did it to get off diabetes medication. Kim has been a constant source of inspiration and information!
