LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -- Diabetes is a chronic condition plaguing Louisiana with one in 10 people carrying the diagnosis. Uncontrolled, it can result in amputations, stroke, even death. A diabetes management program helped one Lake Charles man transform his life and body.

Herbert Gauthier once dreaded standing on the scale, but today, 70 pounds lighter than he was in 2010, he has something to smile about.

"I'm extremely proud and also, others are so proud of me that I did it all naturally," he said.
