    Blood sugar diet

    I found out I had T2 diabetes in 2012. I've just started the (Michael Mosley) 8-week blood sugar diet - I discovered it after reading "Fixing Dad". For those who don't know about it, it's a low-carb, low calorie program that is based on the Mediterranean diet. After 8 weeks, you adapt it, sticking to the Mediterranean principles the whole week but only going low calorie for 2 days out of 7 per week. I'm on day 4 and finding it surprisingly easy. I haven't been hungry....

    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 contrast, a cohort study found an association between a GIP receptor polymorphism and bone loss. 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....

    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. Even when she gets to the ER it takes the doctors forever to get her glucose back to a safe level. 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....

    Reverse Your Diabetes

I felt so lied to at first but then realized they just were never taught. Read Eat to Live or the End Of Diabetes by Dr Joel Fuhrman and join the Facebook group Eat to Live Diabetes Support Group.
