RoyOnRescue has the honor of interviewing a local Mixed Martial Arts champion, Black-Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and owner of a thriving BJJ/MMA and Health Improvement gym. When I met Clint Crabtree he was at the very beginning of his diabetic diagnosis. It didn’t take me long to realize that in everything Clint does, status quo is not an option. In this part 1 of 2 part interview, we hear how Clint has not only overcome a near death experience but has actually found a way to use only a fraction of his insulin and has baffled his doctors on how he has stayed so healthy as a “brittle” insulin dependent diabetic. You’ll want to be sure to watch this episode.
