    Thoughts to Remind All of Us...

I know, they say, never try to break up a dogfight. but that's pretty much impossible to follow when your dog is being mauled by a junkyard hound. So, I saved my buddy...unfortunately, though, at the expense of the a large portion of the tip of my thumb and nail. Needless to say, blood, everywhere. Despite my wife's pleas and, since it was an open wound, I decided to not....

    Gastric Inhibitory Polypeptide and Bone Loss

    There have been few studies of Gastric Inhibitory Polypeptide (GIP) and bone in humans. One study found that exogenous administration of GIP did not change serum CTx levels.

In the Danish Osteoporosis Prevention study, 1686 perimenopausal women were genotyped, BMD was measured at baseline and 10 years later, and fracture data were collected. After 10 years, women with a functional GIP receptor polymorphism....

    I weighed 230lbs and my levels was 245. I worked out non stop at 57 and became a vegetarian I was 175 in a few months. I was in great shape and jacked, but when I got cancer all that was gone. My t2d is good now. I take meds and am back to working out.

    Help w/hypoglycemic episodes

    My 12 yr old grand daughter has been struggling with type 1 w/ketoacidocis now for 1 yr. within the last three months she has had four seizures due to her levels dropping during the night to the twenties.

Her doctors insist that her parents are over injecting her; this is not the case, they claim this is impossible and would only happen with to much insulin. What else, and has anyone else, ever experienced....
