Battling Diabetes One Pedal Stroke at a Time | Momentum Mag

A diabetes diagnosis helped Wendi McDonald make drastic life changes – changes she’s now inspiring other women to make too.
At age 38, Wendi McDonald’s life turned upside down. She lost both of her parents and had to deal with an overwhelming diagnosis: Type 2 diabetes. Instead of turning to insulin or oral medication as was first suggested to her, McDonald chose to manage her diabetes by changing her diet and exercising. For the first time, McDonald stepped into the kitchen and learned how to cook.
After her diagnosis, she dusted off an old Peugeot bicycle – a bike she had helped her father repair years ago – and began riding.
