Coatesville, Pennsylvania Author Publishes New Book
In 52 Years Living with Diabetes: In Spite of the Medical Profession, author James Zajac details the arduous road from his diagnosis with diabetes at age thirteen to his current successful-albeit nontraditional-management of the disease at age sixty-five. Zajac describes the genesis of his diabetes following a childhood bout with rheumatic fever, shortly after which he first got a taste of the negligence and indifference rampant in the medical community, engendering an early distrust in traditional medicine. He then recounts his youthful rebellion against the management of his disease, until a chance meeting with a forward-thinking doctor set him on a path of self-sufficiency that persists to this day. Throughout, Zajac provides invaluable advice regarding natural, non-traditional diabetes treatments, while exposing the incompetence of the medical professionals he has encountered through the years.
Zajac concludes the book by challenging the state of healthcare in the United States, providing statistical as well as anecdotal information that calls for reform at the very root of the system. 52 Years is an enlightening window into the life of a diabetic and his lifelong mission to encourage the American public to take their healthcare into their own hands.
