> Diabetes: What's True And False?

If you're like most people with diabetes, you'll get all kinds of advice about it from friends and family or online. Some of this information is wrong. Here's the truth about some of the common things you might hear. No, it doesn't. Type 1 diabetes happens when cells in the pancreas that make insulin are destroyed. This happens because something goes wrong with the body's immune system. It has nothing to do with how much sugar a person eats. Sugar doesn't cause diabetes. But there is one way that sugar can influence whether a person gets type 2 diabetes. Consuming too much sugar (or sugary foods and drinks) can make people put on weight. Gaining weight leads to type 2 diabetes in some people. Of course, eating too much sugar isn't the only reason why people gain weight. Weight gain from eating too much of any food can make a person's chance of getting diabetes greater. Can people with diabetes eat sweets? Yes! You can have your cake and eat it too, just not the whole cake! Like everyone, people with diabetes should put the brakes on eating too many sweets. But you can still enjoy sweets sometimes. Do people "grow out of" diabetes? People with type 1 diabetes don't grow out of it. W Continue reading >>

    Is it OK for a T2 to abruptly stop taking insulin?

  2. jps

    Talk to your doc first, please.
    I gradually weaned myself off of it and am taking things day by day. But I did make sure it was ok with my doc, he saw no reason for me to try without meds for awhile.
    I'll assess it on a day by day basis, I'll have to rely heavily upon my next A1c and then make a decision from there.

    If you're T2 on insulin, it's because your body isn't making enough of its own insulin to keep your numbers in a good range. Stopping it will only make your blood sugars elevate.
    Perhaps following a low-carb diet and getting regular exercise might decrease the amount of insulin you need....but if you've been diabetic for awhile and oral meds aren't working, insulin is the next step....and stopping it may not be the best thing to do.
    Why would you want to suddenly stop it? I wouldn't advise doing so w/o talking with your doctor.

http://newdiabetescure.tamoev.com THE ONLY NATURAL TREATMENT FOR DIABETES THAT REALLY CURE DIABETES AND REALLY WORKS!!! Here's The Truth About Curing Your Diabetes Naturally - Revealed The Shocking Truth About Diabetes! I am very sure that this article will be very important for any diabetic that come across it. You may be happy to hear that there is an outstanding diabetes natural cure to battle this problem. This natural cure for diabetes reveals scientifically proven principles that can help trigger your body to naturally produce more insulin, reverse diabetes symptoms without the need for medication... The health condition called diabetes is a state of health where sugar is not well absorbed by the body. You may be surprise to hear that the rate of folks that will be suffering from diabetes is likely to go beyond 250 million by 2025 worldwide - resulting in 6 million episodes of renal failure, 8 million instances of blindness or eye surgery, 2 million amputations, 35 million heart attacks, 62 million deaths and 13 million strokes - that is a measure of the scale of the severe health condition known as diabetes. Despite the fact that diabetes belongs at the top of the healthcare agenda, but that position is yet to be given to it. The (ADA) American Diabetes Association states that there are about 21 million folks suffering from diabetics in America; with an additional 54 million folks having pre-diabetes (placing them at high risk for developing Type II diabetes). Adding the number together, it gives the total of 75 million of Americans being at risk of diabetes or having diabetes. With all the attention focused on insulin and blood sugar level, however, the primary cause has been ignored. Many doctors are failing to treat the primary cause of diabetes as stated by a health advocate and best-selling author by name Joe Barton. What they do is to treat the symptoms of diabetes with pharmaceutical medications and chemicals that most often leave the victims with side effects and a long term dependency on these drugs. The main reason some doctors may be failing to understand is that diabetes is not a disease, it is an outward reaction coming directly from the pancreas that results in the body no longer being able to produce normal amounts of insulin as a result of the pancreas being run down. Joe states that if the damage done to the pancreas can be turned around, the organ will be given the chance to heal itself and then, gradually, it is possible for those who are dependent on insulin shots to be able to stop using them. This means that victims of diabetes may no longer have to be dependent on the medications and drugs that are generally taken to treat diabetes. You can reverse diabetes by means of diabetes natural cure method. How diabetes victims get the condition and how they can reverse it for good is what you should strive hard to learn. The new finding on how to cure diabetes naturally is called "The Diabetes-Reversal Report". I would like to use this article to extend the opportunity to anybody who is either suffering from diabetes Type 1 or diabetes Type 2, or is at high risk of getting it, to learn how he/she can reverse diabetes naturally. cure for diabetics treatment options for diabetes diabetes prevention curing diabetes naturally controlling diabetes diabetes care diabetes causes how to treat diabetes how to prevent diabetes treatments of diabetes reverse diabetes managing type 2 diabetes diabetes cures home remedies for diabetes treatment for diabetes type 1 diabetics herbs for diabetes diabetes natural cure natural diabetes treatment sugar diabetes diabetes type 2 treatment homeopathic treatment for diabetes

The Truth About Insulin And Type 2 Diabetes

Most people associate taking insulin with type 1 diabetes. However, some people with type 2 diabetes also need to take insulin. We talked with Andrea Penney, RN, CDE, Joslin Diabetes Center, to find out the truth about insulin and type 2 diabetes. Why would someone with type 2 diabetes who has been controlling their diabetes with diet and exercise need to start taking insulin? There are several reasons why someone would require insulin, even if they hadn’t needed it before. Temporary insulin usage– Some people need to take insulin for a short amount of time, because of things like pregnancy, surgery, broken bones, cancer, or steroidal medicines (like Prednisone). Permanent insulin usage - Sometimes the pancreas becomes unable to produce enough insulin. This happens frequently with aging. People can also become insulin resistant due to weight gain or chronic emotional or physical stress. Simply put, pills can no longer control diabetes. So, it’s not usually “bad” behavior that would cause someone to start insulin? Correct. However, non adherence to diet and exercise might result in high blood glucose levels that only insulin can control. Is insulin dosage different for som Continue reading >>

    Re: Guys if i stop insulin what will happen ????? Or should
    There is a reason why your doctor prescribed insulin for you to use. It is because your blood sugar levels went very high and you were in danger of dying.
    Do you not think it is a bit silly of you to contemplate stopping it? What do you think will happen to you if you stop?
    If you are having hypo feelings, its either because you are not eating enough carbohydrate at set meal times or if you are eating correctly, maybe the insulin doseage needs to adjusted. What you must not do if you want to live, is stop insulin.

Diabetes And Illness

It is very important to know how to cope with illness if you have diabetes or know or care for somebody with diabetes. If in doubt, always seek advice from your doctor or nurse straightaway. Any illness or other type of stress will raise your blood sugar (glucose) levels, even if you are off your food or eating less than usual. People with diabetes are unable to produce more insulin to control the glucose level. The increased glucose level can make you become very lacking in fluid in the body (dehydrated). Acting quickly and following advice helps to keep your glucose levels in the normal range or only slightly high. Because it can sometimes be very difficult to control your blood glucose levels, treatment in hospital may be needed. Hospital treatment may also be needed if you become very dehydrated. What happens to my diabetes when I am unwell? When a person with diabetes is unwell the sugar level in the blood tends to increase. This can happen even with a very mild illness such as the common cold. The blood sugar (glucose) may go up even if you are not eating properly or are being sick (vomiting) or have loose or watery poo (diarrhoea). The increase in blood sugar may make you ve Continue reading >>

    You can stop just means nunbers will go up. I too have the fibro arthritis all over my body. Only thing I can think is low carb during that time you are off insulin, I have done it and I am high just not 300 to 400 without insulin.

    There is a gold standard test to that is used to confirm that adverse reactions are caused by specifi foods or drugs. It is called the Challenge Test. Remove the drug, see if the symptoms go away. If they do, reintroduce the food or drug and see if the symptoms return. If they do then this confirms that the food or drug is causing the adverse reaction with high confidence.

    When I took insulin it caused a lot of edema. For me that wasn't painful, but if the water retention was in joints, maybe it could cause pain. If it was me, I'd look at everything I put in my body. All the medications, insulin, and the food. For years I had lower back pain. Not serious, but annoying. When I stopped eating grains (wheat particularly) the back pain went away. You could try the elimination diet: stop eating grains, dairy, sugar, caffeine, eggs (and probably a couple other things I've forgotten). You are supposed to do it for a month, then gradually reintroduce each thing to see if you react. You'd be amazed how many food sensitivities there are, and how much better you feel if you stop eating foods that you are sensitive to (wheat is also associated with fibromyalgia).
