http://revobiolabs.com Managing Diabetes: Managing diabetes tips, news and treatment Managing diabetes: Managing diabetes research, say they've linked type 2 diabetes with earlier development of precancerous colon lesions recommend people with the blood sugar disorder start colorectal screenings at a younger age than others. The managing diabetes research implies that people with diabetes should get screenings earlier, possibly at age 40, rather than at age 50. However, another managing diabetes experts said more research is needed before making that recommendation.The researchers cautioned that they can't say for sure that diabetes by itself raises the risk of the precancerous lesions and further study is required. Managing diabetes experts know that diabetes is linked with an increased risk of colon and other cancers. Researchers set out to determine if people with diabetes develop precancerous lesions, also called polyps or adenomas, earlier than people without diabetes. The researchers compared the incidence of polyps in three groups of patients: those 40 to 49 with and without diabetes and those 50 to 59 without diabetes. Each group had 125 people.

Managing Diabetes Without Insulin – Is It Possible?

It is widely believed that those with Type 2 diabetes may eventually need insulin if they have diabetes for long enough. However, only about 20-30 percent of people with Type 2 diabetes end up needing insulin injections. In this article, we will explore whether it is possible to manage your diabetes without insulin. If so, how can one do so and when they may eventually need insulin if other treatments do not work out? 1 Type 1 Diabetes disclaimer This article is not for people with Type 1 diabetes because it is imperative that people with Type 1 diabetes require insulin every day without question. A person with Type 1 diabetes produces very little, or no insulin. Without insulin, you cannot convert food into usable energy. Simply put, without insulin, a person with Type 1 diabetes cannot survive. 2 When Robert contacted TheDiabetesCouncil, he was concerned that one day he would have to take insulin shots for his Type 2 diabetes. He had heard a few of his friends with diabetes at church talking about how they had to take insulin injections. Robert was “afraid of needles,” and the thought of giving himself a shot scared him. Is Robert going to need to start taking insulin, or is Continue reading >>

    How long can I live w/o insulin (T1)

    Hi there,
    I'm 25 years old, have been diabetic (type 1) for about 6 years. I'm running out of money and I'm wondering, if I eat a low carb diet, how long I can go w/o insulin for? Will I die? I spent 2 of those 6 years doing little but heroin (diabetic needles made it convenient), so I didn't use to eat much.
    I don't have money for a doctor or for the good insulin (RX + $100 vial of lantis, humlog, etc).
    Any advice?

    Any advice? I just realized my profile says diagnosed in 2009, but I can't change it for some reason.

    A type 1 will die without insulin. Even eating low-carb doesn't help if your pancreas makes no insulin at all, and even if it makes a little bit, it isn't enough for your body's needs.
    But insulin can be purchased at Walmart for lots less money. It isn't the prescription brands like Lantus & Humalog, etc. but you could get by I think. There are others here with so much more experience who can explain what it is and how it's used. I'm sure they'll check in soon. Stand by, okay, tester?

How Long Could We Last Without Insulin?

Registration is fast, simple and absolutely free so please,join our community todayto contribute and support the site. This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. I as thinking, dangerous for me know lol, How long could we stay alive if all insulin ran out, due to war or a disaster? Please let me know your views on this. Thanks. Historically speaking, patients were placed on low cal diets, iv saline, and some lasted 1-2 years, those were new diabetics. They would all die from shock, dehydration, DKA, or when body weight dropped by 60 %. This was 1870-1920 before the discovery of insulin. Depressing question but with pre-existing Diabetes, I'd say not long, one to two weeks with no IV fluid in a so called disaster scenario. I wonder about that too sometimes. When I had better insurance I used to try to save aside some of my supplies each time I ordered, and I actually had some stores of strips and some syringes and insulin....but insurance and prescriptions changed, and now I have to be careful to have enough of everything to last. I hope I'm never in that situation, because I'm afraid Trev is probably right. Good question, I guess we do not think about it enough. Continue reading >>

    Hi All,
    Im new to this - recently diagnosed with T1 on Tuesday
    This may seem like a stupid question - but in the event that Insulin injections ran out (yes I know I sound like an armageddon skeptic) would we be able to survive without the injection purely based on a diet of vegetables and meat?
    Andy

    Welcome to the forum! Sorry to hear of your diagnosis, how did it come about?
    In answer to your question, no we wouldn't be able to survive without the insulin. Vegetables all have some degree of carbohydrate in, and protein converts to glucose eventually, but at a much slower rate. Also, our liver pushes out glucose when we need it too, so we need insulin to cover all of these things.
    In the morning, I can wake at a good number, and when I'm up and moving about my BG will rise without me eating anything at all!
    What insulin regime have you been started on? I think the likelihood of running out of insulin is extremely small, so don't worry!

  3. SB2015

    An Vicki has said, without insulin we would not survive. So we have to inject every day to deal with the glucose that our liver releases and that which comes from any carbohydrates we eat. Your body in the early stages may have some beta cells that have not given up the ghost yet, but you will need injections every day from now on. It will take time to work out how much you will need and your Diabetes Specialist Nurse will help you with this , and help you adjust the doses to start with. Once things settle down you will gradually make your own adjustments to doses based on what you have eaten.

The T1d Zombie Apocalypse Survival Guide

A 10-step guide for keeping your A1C in check while not getting eaten. People with Type 1 diabetes have learned that it takes more work to stay healthy than it would for the average person. The same would hold true with surviving the zombie apocalypse. Staying alive with Type 1 while dodging zombie hordes will take just a bit more forethought, so it’s good to have a plan. With this in mind, Insulin Nation has compiled a step-by-step guide for staying alive when the dead rise to eat the living*: 1. When you first hear reports of unexplained attacks of cannibalism, head to the pharmacy to stock up on supplies. Don’t worry if it’s the right time to refill your prescription; pay out of pocket if needed. You might find that having a relatively rare condition may be a plus if the pharmacy is being ransacked. While you are grabbing test strips and insulin, you won’t have to fight off people grabbing toothpaste and bandages. You might have to fight off children in the candy aisle, however. Be gentle. 2. If you are on pump therapy, you might want to switch back to multiple daily injections. We all know better A1C levels are achieved with technology, but you might have trouble gettin Continue reading >>
