  Welcome To The Diabetes Research Association of America!

This organization is dedicated to giving unique and powerful information to anyone affected by diabetes. 

C. Devin Hastings, founder of the Diabetes Research Association of America, was diagnosed Type 2 diabetes in 1992.  At that time he was going blind from diabetes as well as suffering other unpleasant and embarrassing side effects as a result of out-of-control blood sugars. 

After recovering from major depression as a combination result of diabetes side effects and being diagnosed with a disease, Devin then started researching alternative approaches to effective diabetes management.  His research lead to being published in the November 1999 issue of Diabetes Interview, a leading national diabetes journal. 

Diabetes has affected 4 of 4 people in his family.  Himself, his father and brother and his mother who first went blind from diabetes and then was killed by diabetes. 

Devin conducts seminars across the United States and England on how persons with diabetes can change their lives in powerful ways.  To see more information about his other life changing seminars, please click here.  This link will take you to his other website dedicated to helping people suffering from other life challenges.
