Publication Life with Diabetes Fall/Winter 2016

As a salesman, Marty Kibble spent years taking clients out for big lunches and dinners. As the owner of a barbecue catering business, he routinely took leftovers home with him.

“For quite a few years, I was told that I was a borderline diabetic,” said Kibble, 66. “In 2012, I crossed the threshold.”

Upon his diagnosis of type II diabetes, Kibble immediately went on medications. He also tried one of the ‘fad’ diets, which caused additional health problems.

Kibble took the Diabetes Education class twice at Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital. Following the second class, he asked the Diabetes Education team if he could meet with them to develop a management plan.
