Alexander Danny Joyeux Discusses the Dangers of Living a Sedentary Lifestyle in His Book “Diabetic Denial: The Long Journey Home”

Alexander Danny Joyeux was previously mired in the labyrinth of an unhealthy lifestyle, a foolhardy attitude, and, eventually, an incurable sickness. In a book about his challenges and strategies for surviving type 2 diabetes, he calls for vigilance, and encouragement. His memoir, “Diabetic Denial: The Long Journey Home,” is presented by Joyeux.
Diabetes is a long-term medical condition in which blood sugar (glucose) levels increase. Insulin is a hormone generated by the pancreas that helps glucose flow from the circulation into our cells, where it is used for energy. The cells in people with type 2 diabetes don’t respond to insulin as well as they should. As the disease worsens, the body may be unable to produce enough insulin. High blood glucose levels caused by uncontrolled type 2 diabetes can produce a range of symptoms as well as deadly adverse effects.
“Diabetic Denial” is a motivational and inspirational memoir about diabetes and how it affects the patient. Joyeux, who was previously endangered by his poor choices, has come out to provide awareness of the conditions under which a person may get diabetes and how denial can lead to more detrimental situations. The illness has long-term harmful consequences. On the other hand, it can be prevented if the patient commits to a healthy lifestyle. And with the help of their friends and family, they may achieve stability. The book also includes nutritious meals that, if followed consistently, will assist in the patient’s rehabilitation.
“I hope my story will aid in the awareness and commitment in combatting this issue. I want all to know you are not alone in this struggle, as it requires a lifetime of ups and downs in the pursuit of regulating a healthy lifestyle. Millions find it hard to combat and feel as though life dealt them some bad fate, but I am here to tell it was not so. I hope my story inspires you to make the changes that are necessary, so you can live a full productive and as natural a life as any other human being on the planet,” Joyeux writes.
