Urban Miyares: A Diabetes Miracle

Urban Miyares thanks his diabetes for keeping him alive today. A Vietnam vet, in 1968, this infantry platoon sergeant was out on the field when the enemy hit and he was knocked. Urban’s platoon was wiped out and he along with the rest of them, was put in a body bags for two days. It wasn’t until a medic unzipped Urban’s bag on that second day that they discovered he was still breathing. Urban was knocked out not by the enemy, but by a diabetic coma (DKA).

Watch Urban’s amazing story as he tells us how he was told he would only live 20 years more after his diagnosis, but 44-years-later he is still alive and kickin’! Urban beat the odds despite his diabetes, you can too!
