dLife Founder and CEO to focus more time on his Diabetes Life


Over eight years ago Howard Steinberg had a vision. He wanted a way to address the overwhelming consumer need for real, practical solutions to the 24/7 challenge of managing diabetes. The result of his idea gave life to a  bona fide, sensible culmination of everything you need to know for your diabetes life called dLife.

Having lived with type 1 diabetes since the age of 10, and a background in business and marketing, Howard has intimate knowledge of what is missing for people faced with diabetes. dLife transcends the needs of medical necessity for life with diabetes and reinvents the notion as your diabetes life.

There are a lot of ways to indulge in the dLife experience. One of the most immediate and convenient ways to partake in the knowledge is dLife TV. One taste of dLife TV features Howard and nutrition editor, Lynn Prowitt-Smith,  grocery shopping. Shows on dLife TV cover anything and everything diabetes-related and broadcast on Sundays at 7pm EST or 4pm PST on CNBC.

The  full undertaking of diabetes media involves an all-encompassing approach of videos, apps, podcasts, quizzes, food  & fitness, recipes, meeting others, and resources for anything from clinical trials  to healthcare expenses. This barely scratches the surface of all that dLife has to offer but the site map is a good place to start.

Although this post is an announcement that Howard Steinberg will be stepping down as the CEO of dLife – he will continue creating solutions that help people live a better life with diabetes. This is good news coming from the pioneer of mainstream media for diabetes by a person who has diabetes. Thank you, Howard Steinberg!
