dLife is a half-hour-long American weekly lifestyle television series broadcasting Sundays at 7 PM ET on CNBC. The show, which started airing in 2005, is the first television program dedicated entirely to people living with diabetes and the people who care for them. As of 2013, dLife TV is available online only and no longer appears on CNBC.
dLife is anchored by Benno C. Schmidt III, a veteran network and local broadcast journalist and anchor, along with co-host Jim Turner, who both live with diabetes. Looking at diabetes as a lifestyle rather than a disease, dLife features a wide variety of segments which inspire and connect the diabetes community.
Regular segments include the dLife Kitchen, featuring a diabetes-friendly recipe with chef Michel Nischan, and Real People Real Stories, where viewers send in their personal stories about dealing with diabetes. In addition, there are segments discussing advancements in diabetes research, fitness and health and new diabetes products and therapies on the market. dLife also regularly has special guests, many of whom are celebrities in sports, politics or entertainment, who come on the show and discuss how they deal with diabetes.
