About Me

After being diagnosed with diabetes, I launched full-force into education. What I found on my educational journey, was a LOT of conflicting information, both in books and on the internet. It was the obsessive observation of my own blood sugar and careful correction from my doctor, that I discovered the Truth. That Truth is what prompted me write my first book, and now it has a new name, Derail Diabetes.   Helping people understand diabetes and sharing with them how to live a healthy, full life; with or without a diagnosis of diabetes.

Kim Minert

My name is Kim Minert, and I am certifiably diabetic. Kim Minert, CD. I made up this designation so I could have letters after my name like my friends.

As a Type 1 diabetic, I earned this credential attending daily lifestyle classes in the A1c School of Blood Sugar Management, nothing like real-life learning to educate a girl!

What I found on my educational journey was a LOT of conflicting information, both in books and on the internet. It was the obsessive observation of my own blood sugar and careful correction from my doctor, that I discovered the Truth. That Truth is what prompted me write my book, Your New BFF, now titled Derail Diabetes. I expose misbeliefs and even lies we are told about diabetes, and let readers know how to live a full and healthy life.

Back in the day

As a budding musician in my twenties, I was torn between the desire to be on stage and showcase my talent or to stay behind the curtain and hide. My jeans were so tight I could barely walk or find the next bigger size.

Years of yo-yo dieting followed, binging, starving, closet eating, until finally I got a grip on my addiction to carbohydrates (specifically apple fritters and cinnabons) and embraced a lifestyle of healthier eating.
