Cure For Type 1 Diabetes 2011

It is possible to cure type 2 diabetes without medication. Diabetes drugs are dangerous and should be avoided. These drugs have been shown to cause circulation problems and heart disease. The answer to the problem is to reverse diabetes without medication. Sadly most diabetes diets have been a failure. This is because they have been looking in the wrong place. To learn how to cure type 2 diabetes the answer is not in removing sugar.

The old sugar free diabetes diets have been a failure and cannot cure type 2 diabetes. Since the removal of sugar from the diet the diabetes crisis has grown incredibly worst. Science has shown that by removing sugar you cannot reverse diabetes. The diabetic has a poison in the bloodstream. The poison glucose destroys the cells of the body. This means pain and the loss of your body. There is a spreading poison blood glucose that destroys the body. Why you think the diabetic loses their eyesight and have their legs cut off? It is due to the spreading pollution in the bloodstream killing the body painfully. You do not want this disease spreading you will lose. 99% of diabetic diets cannot cure type 2 diabetes or reverse diabetes.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Muslims, if pigs are unclean, than why did "Allah" put a cure for diabetes in them?!?
    "Pigs from a remote group of islands could hold the key to treating diabetes, doctors believe." - Daily Telegraph, Experimental diabetes treatment will inject humans with pig cells.

    "A company trialling an effective cure for type 1 diabetes has provided a clear safety and tolerance review. The company, based in New Zealand, has found a way to transplant functional pig cells that produce insulin into humans." - Diabetes.co.uk, Pig cells and potential diabetes cure found to be safe for humans.

    Muslims, pigs (which you regard as being 'unclean') hold a key to cure diabetes according to latest medical research, so why did Allah and Muhammad prohibit pigs for consumption and even medical use (I'll discuss that below) despite Southern-Asians and Mid-easterns - which many are Muslims -are more exposed to Diabetes compared to people of the west? Surely, the Qu'ran promoting the use of medicines and a God who sees the future would of put this cure in a clean animal such as a lamb or cow than ofcourse a un-clean animal like a pig?

    I also read something similar regarding this on a Islamic website and they said it's still un-permissible to use "haram" stuff in medications. According to one of many quotes from the Hadith they've put, Muhammad said, "seek medication, O servants of Allah, for Allah never created an illness without creating a cure for it" and "Allah does not put your cure in that which He has forbidden for you." Again, that raises a question what's begging an answer if you regard this issue.

    So Muslims, how'd you respond to this and what do you think of it O.o?!

    Dream I'm a Muslim - I see your point but what you what you're saying still fails to convince me. So what?! That's in their nature to roll around in their crap. From my point of view, your Allah - being the creator of everything including pigs - creates something, puts something beneficial in it that CAN cure a serious disease and then says it's haram... wow... Just wow =|!

    Shape-shifter - I'm not talking about ancient times; I'm talking about our present times ¬¬!
    Um Huda - can't you see the point in my question? I'm not talking about the consumption of pork; I'm talking about the diabetes cure that has been found in pigs. On what you're saying, however, I think the consumption of pork taken in moderation is perfectly safe. If there was a hazard because of the consumption of pork, I'm sure there would of had a health hazard regarding pork by now in England since it's a popular food over here.
    Alice - No, I'm not a "moron who's just hating on Muslims." I have Muslims friends who I get along with who understands my views against Islam and I also understand their views that's against Christianity. This is just a question that I want to see how Muslims respond to since they believe Pork cannot be beneficial when according to Medical Science it is. That's all.

    Carry on hating Christians if you want to. Actually, if that's the case, you're as bad as me and infact more bad than me since you're criticizing and judging people of some religion rather than criticizing and judging the religion of some people.
    Sweet as Strawberry - "Seriously get real. Your stupidity is stunning, I for one know I'm not like you , I'm Better than you!"

    "If you want eat Pork, then eat it! I'm glad I don't eat food that was considered food for the poor a century ago!"

    Wow! Somebody seems full of themselves today ¬¬! Anyways, you're just repeating what "Dream I'm a Muslim" said! I know that it's still in the process but Medical Scientists and Doctors have been doing this research on pigs for almost a decade (fact!), so their must be something to it since it's been going on for that long which is acceptable to put into consideration; plus, you being the son of a doctor and a intelligent teen, I'm sure you know that Insulin that's used for treating people with type 1 diabetes is the one that comes from pigs.

    "So their might be Alternative for Muslims and Others who don't eat pork!".....so it's better to use the latter than the former O.o?! Wow.... just wow!
    Dream I'm a Muslim - you keep saying that! I'm talking about the cure for diabetes what's found in pigs; not eating pigs. Looks can be deceiving, so don't try and like their not.

  2. QUESTION:
    every thing to know bout Nick Jonas(P.S,Not a question, just for fans who want to know every thing bout him)?
    Nicholas Jerry "Nick" Jonas (born September 16, 1992) is an American singer-songwriter, musician and actor best known as one of the Jonas Brothers, a pop-rock band he formed with his brothers Joe and Kevin. The Jonas Brothers originally started as an attempted solo singing career for Nick, but the record producer liked the sound when his brothers sang backup for him. He currently stars in the Disney Channel original series JONAS as Nick Lucas, alongside his brothers. Currently he has formed the band Nick Jonas & The Administration, which released its first album in 2010.
    Nick Jonas was born in Dallas, Texas,[1] the son of Denise, a former sign language teacher and singer, and Paul Kevin Jonas Sr., a songwriter, musician, and former ordained minister at an Assemblies of God church.[2][3][4] He was raised in Wyckoff, New Jersey and home schooled by his mother. Nick is of Cherokee, Irish (from his maternal grandfather), Italian, and German descent.[5][6]

    He was diagnosed with Type I diabetes at the age of 13 and wears an OmniPod insulin pump to help him manage his condition.[7] He has developed the Change for the Children Foundation. Partnering with five different charities, their goal is to raise money and awareness for diabetes.[8] He also developed a public service announcement with the Washington Nationals to support diabetes care at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.[9]

    Since August 6, 2008, Bayer Diabetes Care has partnered with Jonas as a diabetes ambassador to promote the idea for young people to manage their diabetes.[10] Jonas testified in the U.S. Senate to promote more research funding for the condition.[11]

    Miley Cyrus has stated that she dated Jonas from June 2006 to December 2007. Cyrus claimed they were "in love" and began dating soon after they first met.[12][13]
    Acting
    Broadway and Theatre
    Jonas's career started when he was discovered at the age of 6 in a barber shop while his mother was getting her hair cut and was referred to a professional show business manager.[14][15][16] At the age of 7, he began performing on Broadway.[17][18] He had acted in several plays, including A Christmas Carol (in 2000 as Tiny Tim and Scrooge at eight), Annie Get Your Gun (in 2001 as Little Jake), Beauty and the Beast (in 2002 as Chip), and Les Misérables (in 2003 as Gavroche).[18][19][20][21] After Les Misérables closed, he performed in The Sound of Music (as Kurt) at the Paper Mill Playhouse.[22]
    Singing
    Solo artist
    In 2002 while performing in Beauty and the Beast, Nick had written a song with his father called "Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer)." With background vocals from the Beauty and the Beast cast, Nick performed the song on the 2002 annual Broadway "Equity Fights AIDS" album, Broadway's Greatest Gifts: Carols for a Cure, Vol. 4.[28][29] In November 2003, INO Records received a demo copy of "Joy To The World (A Christmas Prayer)."[30] The label released the song to Christian radio, where it quickly became popular on Record & Radio's Christian Adult Contemporary Chart.[29] While Nick was working on his solo project, Joe followed in his footsteps to Broadway, appearing in Baz Lurhmann's production of La Boheme.

    By September 2004, an executive at Columbia Records found out about Nick's song.[28][29] Nick was soon jointly signed to INO Records and Columbia Records and released the single "Dear God".[31][32] A second single, "Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer)" (a new solo recording), was released on November 16.[33] It was supposed to be followed by a December release of a self-titled solo album Nicholas Jonas, but the album was pushed back.[34] It did, however, get a limited release.[35] Nick, along with Kevin and Joe, had written several other songs for the album.[28]

    In early 2005, Columbia Records' new president, Steve Greenberg, listened to Nick's record. While Greenberg did not like the album, he did like Nick's voice.[36]

    Nick Jonas is currently working on a side project from the Jonas Brothers called "Nick Jonas and the Administration". Their debut album Who I Am was released February 2, 2010. The band members consist of Tommy Barbarella on keyboard, Michael Bland on drums, John Fields on bass, and David Ryan Harris on guitar.[37] Although David Ryan Harris recorded guitar in the studio for Who I Am he was unable to go on tour with the rest of band and was ultimately replaced by Sonny Thompson.

    In January 2010 Jonas embarked on the Who I Am Tour with the Administration. This was Jonas' first tour without his brothers. The tour consisted of 22 dates that began on January 2, 2010 in Dallas, Texas and concluded on January 30, 2010 in Berkeley, California.

  2. QUESTION:
    Biofeedback Therapist-Cancer Diagnosis?
    My mom who is 48 went to a biofeedback therapist in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada and diagnosed her stage 1.5 to stage 2 Pancreatic cancer. My mom is a 5'7 145 pounds, smoker (25-30 years). She doesn't eat very much nutritional food, mainly soups. She drinks about 2 cans of coke per day and likes sweets. She has a family history of type 2 diabetes and her 50 year old sister is in remission since april 2009 of triple neg breast cancer. This biofeedback therapist recommended by a family friend did the tests and told her the diagnosis. For the past while ,since an accident at work and later in a vehicle she has had mid back and neck pain with excruciating headaches. She has been seeing a chiropractor who has diagnosed her with 2 bulging disks. Recently she has had thin bowel movements also odd bm to her. My question is how accurate is Biofeedback therapists? Also he told her between stage 1.5 and 2 pancreatic cancer but theres no tumors, but reading online about pancreatic cancer I got the impression that even a stage 1 has a pea size tumor and the life expectancy of five years is less the 30%. Since seeing him today he put her on a coffee enema (to flush toxins out of liver), sesame seed swish (20 min 3 times daily - to eliminate metals in her) and a pill she has to take 2 before each meal (similar to a chemo therapy- cancer cell killer) and a clove liquid to put into capsules and finally a bowel regulator. --> He said she had high metal amounts in her. When she told me what he said I was devastated. I hear pancreatic cancer and I hear "death sentence". My mom does live an unhealthy life style but she doesn't eat fast food or drink alcohol. Please help me, I am 17 years old and going into pre med in the fall and I love my mom dearly, she is the most important person in my life and I couldn't live without her. She is going to follow this mans plan (what if she follows he said she would be cured and if continued to live this new life style she would lower her chances of cancer altogether) and go back in a month to retest and see how she's responding to his treatments. What should her next steps be? CT, MRI, Ultrasound, Blood work? ( he did some sort of test similar to a blood test and some level was at 156 and anything over 200 is definitely a stage 3 or 4 cancer and 75 is normal? PLEASE HELP. Also she is under a lot of stress, that im trying to help her with. PLEASE HELP.... I cant lose my mom!

    ps- he also said her liver was failing and that these test are about 2 years earlier of diagnosis then "medical diagnostics".

Cure For Type 1 Diabetes

The Treatment And Cure

For type 1 diabetes:

Daily injections of insulin are necessary. One to four daily injections are required to control blood glucose levels. Long acting and rapid acting insulin preparations are available; a combination of the two kinds is often prescribed. A strict diet and schedule of meals are necessary to control blood glucose levels. Your doctor may recommend a diet low in fat, salt, and cholestrol, and May advice you to see a nutritionist for dietary planning. Because both exercise and insulin lower glucose levels. Exercise and insulin injections must be timed so that they do not combine to cause a dangerous drop in blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Strict adherence to the timetable of injections, meals, and exercise is necessary for proper management of the disease.

For type 2 diabetes:

A low diet in fat and other calories, in addition to regular exercise, is necessary to control weight. Oral hypoglycemic drugs, such as tolbutamide, chlorpropamide, tolazamide, acetohexamide, glyburide, glipizide, glimepiride, repaglinide, or meglitonide may be prescribed to increase insulin production by the pancreas, if exercise and diet do not lower glucose levels sufficiently. Other oral agents can reduce insulin resistance (metformin, pioglitazone, and rosiglitazone) or slow the absorption of sugars from the intestine (acarbose and miglitol). Insulin injections may be necessary in more severe cases of type 2 diabetes or, or if a patient with type 2 diabetes contracts an additional illness.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Where can I find arguments against an approaching Type 1 diabetes cure?
    I'm researching the possibility of cure for Type 1 diabetes, and my argument is that there will be a cure in the near future, if funding improves and if beta cell and immune research continues. This is for my AP research paper, and no, I'm not making others write it. Suprisingly, I can't find a sufficient article arguing that a diabetes cure WON'T come soon, so i'm simply asking, does anyone know where I can find one? Any tips or sites are helpful, thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      ...as much as I dislike the fact that you are asking yahoo-answers for an AP Essay....I'll help you, my approach would be through stem-cell, maybe grow a healthy pancreas and have a transplant it in, and irradiate your immune system and transplant bone marrow

  2. QUESTION:
    how close are they to finding a cure for type 1 diabetes?
    I'm 17 and I have had diabetes for 16 1/2 years. I heard they were quite close to finding a cure a few times but what do you guys know about it?

    • ANSWER:
      Perhaps closer the we can imagine. CNN, Fox, ABC LA TIMES New York Times announced on the 17/02/2011 the sensational news that cancer and diabetes could very soon be a disease of the past. Here is the gist of this incredible story, after studying people afflicted with Larons disease collecting and collating data, people with Larons are immune to cancer and diabetes .This is an unusual genetic defect .Apparently these people hav a very low growth hormone balance hence they are short in stature. Experiments are being conducted as we speak and medical people are quietly confident that they are on the right track. It really is an amazing story and you ought to check this out yourself. Thinking of our western way of life, hmm we eat beef which is laced with growth hormones, chicken are being fed with dioxin ( chemical explosion in Seveso Northern Italy, which caused birth deformities) Fruit and vegetables which are genetically modified , snap frozen , DDT sprayed. Its then no wonder people are getting ill. Our water is polluted with mercury, fish ingest mercury, so do humans eating fish. Hope you read the website attached, enjoy and live a healthy life

  3. QUESTION:
    When can we expect a cure for type 1 diabetes?
    If at all? And I mean a proper tested cure avalible to the public.

    • ANSWER:
      It's been "around the corner" for years. I don't expect a cure any time soon, but companies are getting closer and closer to an "artificial pancreas". The idea is to have a unit that can test sugar and provide appropriate insulin automatically. That will be close to a cure. Stem cell research may provide good treatment options someday, but that research is in its infancy.
      To help find a cure, participate in JDRF fundraising events as much as possible. This doesn't have to cost you a cent, because they are always looking for volunteers to work at the events.

  4. QUESTION:
    Do you think a cure for type 1 diabetes is close or is there one already that is being hidden?
    There has been controversial discussion that there is a cure ad that the goverment is covering it up because its a multi-billion dollar industry. What are your thoughts on this?

    • ANSWER:
      We need to recognize that the companies that profit from diabetes (pharmaceutical companies, insulin manufacturers, pump manufacturers, supply companies) aren't going to help find a cure. It's not in their business model, and it makes no sense to expect them to participate other than for PR purposes. It's going to be up to the universities and research centers to come through with a cure. But I can't imagine someone has discovered a cure and is withholding it. A discovery like that means big money to an organization, so they're not going to keep quiet. Until then, the best hope we have is islet cell transplants. But until they can figure out how to minimize the anti-rejection drugs you have to take, how to get a large supply of these cells, and how to make the cells last, we just have to wait. A cure has been "right around the corner" the whole 24 years I've had it, and long before that, so I don't expect a cure within my lifetime. Not holding my breath.

  5. QUESTION:
    What is the guaranteed cure for type 1 diabetes?
    If someone out there knows the answer. I too would like to know.

    • ANSWER:
      there is no cure for Diabetes...yet

  6. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know how close they are to finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes?
    Well, I'm 14, and I've only been a diabetic for 5 months (almost 6) and I've heard they are working on a cure for it and I was wondering if anyone knows any information about it.

    • ANSWER:
      Unfortunately even if there is a cure, the diabetic company's make so much money they have the power for a little while to do whatever they can to keep the product from being made or sold. Pfizer lost 2 billion dollars making, selling and trying to get doctors to write for Exubera (an inhaled insulin). The insulin pumps are advanced almost to the point of being ready for a device that could take a thousand readings a day and inject the appropriate amount of insulin. The Dexcom has this feature. It is not accurate so it would not work as an adjunct to the pump. If you took 1% of Pfizer's money they lost on Exubera thats 10 million dollars. I believe with this funding The people working on the Dexcom could make that ready to test with a the appropriate group. People don't want to believe this. When you have 1 million new cases of diabetes a year and growing. The money the rich people is enough to buy anything they want and if that meant buying the cure for diabetes some company's doing what the have to to keep a device like that off the market, They would considering that an ivnestment.

  7. QUESTION:
    Type 1 Diabetes Cure Soon?
    Why Have the doctors not yet found a cure for Type 1 Diabetes? I have had it for 3 years and people always say the doctors are really close. Does anybody know how close?
    I have the insulin pump and don"t mind having it its really difficult to explain to guys and stuff since im in high school.

    • ANSWER:
      There is no research at present which is expected to lead to a 'cure' for several decades if at all. The problem is that we do not know why a common viral infection triggers an auto-immune response in susceptible individuals. This auto-immune response targets the beta (insulin producing) cells of the pancreas. Approximately 95% of such cells have been destroyed by the time of diagnosis and the remaining cells are destroyed in a relatively short period of time. Although there is nothing at present that is thought to lead to a cure there is considerable research which is on-going. It is always appropriate to hope as physicians are often surprised at what they may unexpectedly find. If I may be of further assistance please let me know. I wish you the very best of health and in all things may God bless. JR

  8. QUESTION:
    Do you think there will be a cure for type 1 diabetes by 2015?
    I really would like to join the Marines or Air Force but cant because of my fucking diabetes abd 2015 is when I graduate high school.

  9. QUESTION:
    will we ever find a cure for type 1 diabetes?
    Do you think they are going to make a cure for cancer sometime in my life time i just am waiting and praying that they do.

    • ANSWER:
      There is a study in development of Type 1 Diabetes being cure by a bone medulla transplant. If the patient has just been diagnosed with diabetes it probably have a high chance that the pancreas beta cells have not yet being totally destructed, so after transplant you will have a new immune system that won't attack the pancreas no longer. Leading to the total cure.

  10. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know anything about a diabetes cure/ latest news (type 1)?

    • ANSWER:
      The most promising news comes from Boston's Dr. Denise Faustman. One of her biggest advocates is a type one, Allie Beatty.

      Check Allie out here: http://www.alliesvoice.com

      Denise Faustman: http://www.faustmanlab.org/research.html

      The sad thing is, despite their mission statement, the JDRF won't help her with funding. She's only asking for 2 mil. The JDRF gave out something like 160 mil last year. The good news is, Lee Iacocca, who's wife died from T1DM, gave his money and his name to Faustman's research.

  11. QUESTION:
    Do you think it is likely that there will be a cure for type 1 Diabetes by 2015?
    I want to be in the USMC or something but I cant.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't think that there'll be a cure, but it will be 99x more easier and automatic. Why do I say that? Because right now, we're able to have closed-loop systems overnight. Now, they just need to tweak the day-time formula and then we'll just manage with a canula and pump that manages and boluses for itself.

      So, a cure? Not yet. But give it another 10 or so years and we'll be closer.

  12. QUESTION:
    how long do you think it will take to find a cure for type 1 diabetes?
    because i really want to join the marines!

    • ANSWER:
      I have a tendancy to agree with the others that they already have a cure, but just aren't willing to release it to the public because of the $$$$ they make off of us who can not survive without our insulin and our pills to keep us running. However, the islet cells they have transplanted are inspiring and even better the ones that they can take from our own bodies and "reprogram" them to make insulin! The fact that we know this is hopefull and I think its possible in the next 15-20 years or less that we'll either have a cure or atleast this disease will be much more manageable as well as the cures and treatments of its nasty side effects. Hang in there your not alone! : )

  14. QUESTION:
    Will there ever be a permanent cure for type 1 diabetes?
    I've had it for so long now..my twin has it too..
    I'm sick of it! It affects every part of my life..I feel so depressed.. will there ever be a permanent cure? permanent insulin? Something to wake those pancreas up????

    • ANSWER:
      I have heard that a resarch team out of Gainesville, FL is working on a project which uses lettuce! have found bits and pieces in its regard on the internet, but nothing new lately.

      Believe me! You sound just like me. I've had Type 1 for 40 years and would love to hear of a"cure" but, it isn 't on thehorizon quite yet.

      Keep your chin up. I'll try to do the same.

  15. QUESTION:
    Is there an alternative cure for type 1 diabetes, that does not still require insulin?

    • ANSWER:
      As far as I know, there is none. The primary defect of the body in type 1 diabetes is it is unable to produce insulin for its own use. That is why we give type 1 diabetics insulin but not type 2 diabetics because they can produce their own insulin but they are "resistant" to it. If someone can find an alternative medicine that is ABSOLUTELY PROVEN through randomized, double blind studies to be able to repair the pancreas so that the body can produce insulin, then they're going to be a hero.

  16. QUESTION:
    Does Type 1 Diabetes have a cure?
    Some of us know Nick Jonas has Diabetes, and his song about theres a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. is that true is there a cure? cause i might get Diabetes and im not fat. im really skinny im 5 foot 3/93.8 pounds and im 12 years old until September 25 i turn 13.

    Im just really curious. and if you could, can you list everything you know about Type 1 Diabetes even the type of routine you have to go through to keep yourself from being sick of this.

    and can Type 1 Diabetes kill you?
    List everything and anything you know.

    • ANSWER:
      There is a cure for type one, it just hasn't been 'discovered' yet. Dr. Denise Faustman is apparently very close. So close, in fact, that organizations that depend on us diabetics for their income, like the JDRF, and various pharmaceutical companies, won't fund her research because it might put them out of business.

    • ANSWER:
      All across the US and in Canada the National Institute of Health is working on transplanting Islet Cells, the cells that make insulin in the human body.
      I was involved in one of the clinical trials in Philadelphia. They were having great success in Philly. The doctors have already cured 3 people of type 1 diabetes. There are still many problems with islet transplantion that the doctors across the country are trying to solve by doing these clinical trials. The goal is to make type 1 diabetes a thing of the past.
      By the way, anyone interested in getting involved, like I was, google 'islet transplant clinical trials'. They are still looking for people to cure. I unfortunately couldn't go through with the transplant because of antigens from being pregnant.

    On 17th, I contact his hospital TELEPHONICALLY & inquired about the availability of the treatment to Diabetics; especially about my 16 yr Juvenile Diabetic only Son*. A lady named Nalinibahen, replied on his behalf over the telephone that I may go to there in Ahmedabad during any Monday to Friday with prior appoint. On inquiry, She got confirmation that blood group of my son & of mine is equal. She told me about the procedure that on arrival, they, through minor surgery, collect a piece of fat from my stomack & let us leave the hospital for about 15 days. During these period, they will cultivate stem cells from it. When stem cells r ready from the fat, they will call us for treatment of my Juvenile/Type 1 Diabetic Son. She informed me over TELEPHONE that they will transplant the stem cell into lever of the patient. After that, the patient has to let admitted for about 1 month. On inquiry, she told me their charges, Rs. 1 Lac.

  19. QUESTION:
    Is there a cure for type 1 diabetes?
    Is there any cure yet? Or tests?

    • ANSWER:
      There is no cure for type 1 diabetes. Your pancreas doesn't make any insulin which is needed to uptake glucose in our cells for energy. The only way it can be managed is to take insulin injections for the rest of ones life.
      There is a clinical study taking place in the US and Canada. They take islet cells from a donor and put them in your liver. There are several different versions of this study taking place.

      Hope this helps.

  20. QUESTION:
    Why do doctors think that finding a cure for type 2 diabetes is more important then finding a cure for type 1?
    i had a doctor come in to my class today and non stop talk about how they were in pursuit of finding a cure for type 2 diabetes. Im of course glad to hear that, but what about type one. Ive had type one for about 10 years now and i havent heard about any new treatments other then stem cells, and the pump. why? type one is way worse then type 2

    • ANSWER:
      Type 2 affects a greater % of the population and is preventable. By educating people about t2 diabetes it is hoped that the rate of diagnoses and diabetes related complications will eventually go down. Type 1 on the other hand is unpreventable and affects a small amount of the population.

      On the plus side, many of the advancements for t1 have occurred because of the rise in t2. Improvements in glucose monitors, insulin etc are more profitable for companies to invest in if there is a large part of the population who needs them.

    How do I get sponsors to be the youngest runner to cross America and support the cause for diabetes type 1?
    I am 14 and I am training to be able to run all the way across the continental US in hopes to set a record and at the same time be able to raise much needed money for the research and hope for a cure for type 1 diabetes, which I have and is on the rise, rapidly. I don't know where to begin to get this cause started and actually make it worth something. I am hoping for huge contributions to this cause. How should I begin?

    • ANSWER:
      I love your enthusiasm. Never let diabetes stop you from doing anything !!

      Good luck.

  22. QUESTION:
    Do you think there will be a cure for type 1 diabetes in the near future?

    • ANSWER:
      NEAR future -- no.

      But there is some promising work on curing Type 1 Diabetes with Adult Stem Cells. Experiments have proven effective in mice.

      but it is a LONG way from mice to men! First, the experiments must be duplicated, even triplicated, by other laboratories, just to make sure it was not a "fluke".

      Next, other lab animals, maybe pigs, might be tried. Being omnivores like humans (we eat anything), a pig's system is very much like our own.

      IF this treatment proves successful, the proper techniques must be developed. Where do Adult Stem Cells come from? How do the get into the patients body?

      Clinical trials can then begin. a Clinical Trial is just like the rat and pig experiments, except human volunteers are used. they will need to test on both diabetics and on "healthy" people to make sure there are no adverse side effects. Clinical trials of this nature can tke 5-10 YEARS to complete.

      Finally, all the results are given to the FDA, who must approve the treatment for human use. The approval process, especially with something as serious as this, could take 3-5 years.

      SOOooo.....
      When we look at all the experimenting that is STILL needed, it is a safe bet that a cure for Type 1 diabetes will not show up for 20-30 years.

      Cure in the NEAR future -- No. Cure in the not-too-distant future -- MAYBE.

  23. QUESTION:
    How many years away do you think we are for a cure for diabetes type 1?

    • ANSWER:
      There will never be a cure for anything,although there really are natural cures that they don't want you to know about.If they cured disases the drug companys wouldn't make much money.The only cures you find will be natural cures but if they tell you it will cure a disease the FDA will call it an unapproved drug and will prosecute them.The FDA says if you say something will cure a disease then it is classified as a drug.The FDA says there are no natural cures,they say only drugs and surgery can cure a disease. >

  24. QUESTION:
    When will there be a cure for type 1 diabetes?

    • ANSWER:
      Ignore the clowns, Molly. If there were actually a definitive "cure", it's unlikely that they'd be able to keep that secret for very long.

      I'm assuming that you realise [realize, if you're one of my American cousins] that not all type 1 diabetics are born with the condition. In fact, it's comparatively rare to be born with diabetes mellitus.

      I doubt, very much, that it's going to be within the very near future. (I've been waiting almost 30 years now since I was told that there was a cure "just around the corner".)

      So far, the "cures" that have come about have tended to be short-lived. They tend not to last for very many years. (These include pancreas transplants and islet cell transplants.) However, various ways at changing how islet cell transplantation are still being investigated, and so is stem cell research. Both of these areas look quite promising.

      I do hope that you won't have much longer to wait.

      Be well.

  25. QUESTION:
    Is there a natural cure for type 1 diabetes?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Jeremy P.
      Fortunately this type of diabetes can be controlled and managed more comfortably than type 2 diabetes. However, this does not change the fact that this is a serious condition and if you have the disease, you have to be very careful. Diabetes is not a condition that you can neglect; medical attention is required as soon as it is diagnosed. If left untreated, it will lead to more serious health problems. You have to be careful about what you eat and what you do.

      As the pancreas stops the production of insulin in type 1 diabetes, the treatment for this disease would include the introduction of insulin to the body. There are about 20 types of products available which could provide the much needed insulin. Which product should be taken depends on the patient and the physician providing the health care.

  26. QUESTION:
    Why is there no cure for type 1 diabetes?

    • ANSWER:
      well, i have it, and quite frankly, i don't give a dahm. lmao.
      its a part of who i am.
      honestly, it will be a longggggggggggg time before they find a cure.

  27. QUESTION:
    why can't you cure diabetes (type 1)?
    the title says it all..why can't you? can't doctors inject something into your body that produces insulin correctly? or a transplant? or something?

    (oh, please don't say "they'll never be a cure", you'll just make me fell bad for myself..ugh, sorry if i sound like a brat)

    • ANSWER:
      In normally healthy people, insulin is produced by certain special cells. In diabetics, either those cells don't produce enough insulin, or they don't produce any insulin at all.

      Transplants work...sort of. Usually diabetics don't get transplants of just those insulin producing cells, because a transplant patient has to be on an even more regimented treatment plan than a diabetic. So if a diabetic needs a transplant of some other organ, s/he might very well get a transplant of those cells, as well, because s/he'll have to take anti-rejection medicines and do all that other stuff anyway.

      I think that there WILL be a cure. I have no idea when. I think that we should be doing a lot more research with stem cells.

  28. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have a cure for type 1 diabetes?

    • ANSWER:
      Actually there is. Getting a new pancreas through a transplant. Since diabetes is caused by problems with the pancreas (the pancreas doesn't make insulin) getting a transplant would cure diabetes.

      They have done this on a few occasions

  29. QUESTION:
    do u know about the new way for cure of diabetes type 1 for children has 7 years old?
    i looking for definite cure, not about control of diabeted type 1. please informe me for any vaccine or drug for definite cure. thankf

    • ANSWER:
      At this time, there IS NO DEFINITE CURE.

      But on the horizon are some new possibilities that are STILL in the animal testing stages.

      The first uses adult stem cells to regrow the Islet Cells in your pancreas that produce insulin. This has worked IN MICE -- but is a LONG way from being given to humans. IF this proves effective in HUMANS, then a commercial treatment is still 15-20 years away.

      A Pancreas Transplant is a possibility, but is very very dangerous. Pancreas Transplant is the least effective of all the transplanted organ. Heart transplants easily live 10-15 years longer. Kidney transplants live 15-30 years longer.

      But pancreas transplant live only 5-7 years longer. In fact, more than 50% of the patients are dead within 5 years. Therefore, most doctors will NOT do a pancreas transplant unless the patient is going to die anyway. In this case, even a couple of years longer is better than nothing.

      But Type 1 Diabetes in a 7-year-old is EASILY treatable with insulin, diet, and exercise. NO doctor would recommend a transplant to an otherwise healthy patient!

      There are some other possibilities, but they are are even more unsure, and have MANY years of experiment to go through before humans can be involved.

      In the mean time, the 7-year-old needs to learn what CAN and CANNOT be eaten, and that the medication are KEEPING HER ALIVE, and without them shot she WILL die.

  33. QUESTION:
    When will stem cells cure diabetes?
    I've been reading many different articles on stem cells being the way to cure type 1 diabetes. I just haven't found a straight answer for an approximate time for when it will be available for the public. I also haven't been able to figure out if you will need to take immunity suppressors with the stem cell treatment. In fact, any info on it would be greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:

  34. QUESTION:
    anyone heard of any cure for type 1 diabetes (yeh aside from insulin)?
    any promising researches or possible soon to be cures?

    • ANSWER:
      Well you can get a full pancreatic transplant (which is normally done as well as a kidney transplant) or you can get an Islet Cell/Stem Cell transplant, but none of these are really mainstream as of yet. They all require drugs that would suppress the immune system so the organs/cells wouldn't be rejected. In years to come they're hoping to be able to cure it by the islet/stem cell transplant where the cells would be coated with Teflon or the like so the immune system couldn't destroy them, but this is a few years away.

      Hope I helped :)

  36. QUESTION:
    is there a cure for type 1 diabetes?

    • ANSWER:
      Pancreas transplant or islet cell transplant, though neither has yet proven to be permanent, and both have their own risks as you have to take anti-rejection drugs for the rest of your life. Research into stem cell treatment appears to hold good promise for a type 1 'cure', but don't hold your breath waiting for it. It's still some way off yet.

      Dr Atkins diet can be very dangerous to diabetics because it can cause the ketones to rise. Most doctors and nutritionists will tell you to stay away from this diet. Studies on Chromium Picolate have shown that is does not help blood sugars to go down or help the diabetes. It only reduced the blood sugar readings by about 10 points in most cases. There were over 1,000 people that participated in the study.
      Yes, type 2 can SOMETIMES be controlled by diet and exercise, but usually requires medication later in life. Not all type 2's can control their disease this way, because type 2 is also caused by a disfuntion in the pancreas.

  39. QUESTION:
    type 1 diabetes has a cure?
    iv been type 1 now for two years and since i startde taking herbalife products am i m now off insulin amazing

    • ANSWER:
      This is not a cure, it means you are probably getting a vitamin that is helping you in breaking down your insulin, that you can regularly break down. If you stop taking herbalife, will you continue to break down insulin, for your system. My suggestion is that you go back to your doctor, and find out exactly what herbalife is doing.

    I have had type 1 diabetes since 1982. As i get older i don't have symptoms for low blood sugar any more. Why?
    with all the science and tech why can't they cure type 1?

    • ANSWER:
      This is called Hypo Unawareness. The more times one has Hypo episodes the less aware they are of the lows. This is the reason for us to be checking our glucose levels frequently and trying hard not to go Hypo very often.

  41. QUESTION:
    Is there any breakthrough in finding permanent cure for 'Type-1' diabetes?.?
    I want my 7 years old son to get permanent remedy from 'Type-1' diabetes at the earliest. Are transplantations working? I am willing to give my pancreas to him. What is the status of stem cell research on treating diabetes ?

    • ANSWER:
      I wish there were, but I have not heard of any. The best news I have heard about Type I is the inhaled insulin trials. As for transplants, frankly, they don't do them until the diabetic is so near death that not doing them would mean certain death. The reason is that taking the anti-rejection drugs is more dangerous than being a well-controlled diabetic.

      I do want to warn you about something. I was diagnosed as a Type I just before my fifth birthday and am now nearing my fourth decade. I was totally uncontrolled as a child, teen, and young adult. I was 24 before I finally got serious about it. I have 0 complications at this point, low blood pressure, low cholesterol (I do not exercise regularly but I do eat well) and my A1Cs have been in the "non-diabetic" range for over 10 years (like 4.5 to 6). My two, healthy children, were born at 6 lbs 9ozs and 6 lbs 12 ozs (I am female).

      Don't burden your son by telling him how great a cure will be. I remember how often people told me that while I was growing up. It made me feel like there was something wrong with me because I had diabetes and that diabetes would be the reason I could not accomplish things. Fortunately, I "accidentally" found some great literature and accomplishments by Type Is. There are lots of famous people with Type I who have accomplished many things.

      Life can be great with Type I. Sucks your son got it, but it does not have him. Show him how, once he makes taking care of himself a part of his life, it is an easy one if not one just like everyone elses (he should take pride in what he does to take care of himself). Now that I just automatically check my glucose, determine my level of activity, and base my food choices on how I doing that day, it feels strange to me that non-diabetics don't do this and complain so bitterly about being told not to overeat. I don't even need to check a books anymore, I know how carbs and fats affect my life off the top of my head.

      Of course, I want a cure. But, I am just fine and dandy without one. So, baring a cure, the best wish I can make for your son is that he focus on learning about the disease and how it functions in his body so that he can do all he wants to do in life.

  42. QUESTION:
    Any major breakthroughs or hard research for Type 1 Diabetes?
    There has been many steps towards curing Type 2 Diabetes and caring/preventing it. Has there been any major research or giant steps towards Type 1 Diabetes I may have missed? The reason I'm concerned is my girlfriend is Type 1 Diabetic (heredity) and I hate to see her need to stop having fun because she has to go take insulin (she can't use the automatic pump) and we can't horse around that much because her level will drop very fast. I just want to know if there's any chance of a giant leap to caring, maybe even CURING, type 1 that would be in her life. She is still very young.

    Estimated time for a cure for type 1 (juvinal) diabetes?
    Im scared i might have it but im not sure and i just want to know the estimated time and mabe other facts, Im 14 and my dad has this and ive been peeing all the time lately like every 15 minnutes and 3 times a night but im not thirsty or tired or any other symptoms. Exept this morning i vomited this weird green and black substance that looked like coffee grounds but i thiks all that is bc of the 1200 mg of ibuprofen i take a day bc ive been to the doc and he found no sugar in my urine so he checked my prostate and he thought it was inflamed so he gave me ibuprofen. But please give me an estimated time on the cure based on how research is going. Thanks :) im realy scared:(

    • ANSWER:
      Well my little brother was diagnoses with type one. He had the same symptoms, he kept peeing like every 15-30 min. This is because the body is trying to get rid of blood sugar. He was never thirsty, or hungry. When we went to a neighbor who was a nurse, she said stick out your tongue, so he did, and he had a white "film" on his tongue. Then our neighbor said to take him to the ER. My little brother had these symptoms from about a week until he went to the hospital. His crab count was 800, 700 more than needed. If I were you, go to the ER, and tell them all of your symptoms, and ask about diabetes. Sadly, there is no cure for type one Diabetes yet. But if you do have type one, and you do not seek medical care soon, you could go into a diabetic coma, this is when your body has to high of levels of carbs, so you go into a coma. the only way to be revived is by a glucagun. It is this big shot to bring down carb levels fast. So go to the ER asap. and until you get there, drink LOTS of water, this brings down carb levels, and eat low carb items. Also check your carb count by using your dad's meter, he should know how to do that.

  45. QUESTION:
    Is this a good introductory paragraph to a Type 1 Diabetes research paper?
    “I’m sorry to say, but you have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.” Upon hearing such a statement, children may become extremely frightened of their novel disease. “Am I going to die?” is often the first asked inquiry. What may be the most puzzling aspect of diabetes, though, are its quintessential causes and risks. A flurry of miscomprehension- from not only their selves, but also friends- leaves children disconsolate and outcast; approximately three million Americans will agree (JDRF). Despite ongoing research, a cure for type 1 diabetes has not yet been discovered. Assisted by proper research and a plethora of optimism, though, and victims can easily lead a happy, healthy life.

    ..

    • ANSWER:
      Honey, your mom didn't get Type 1 diabetes from stress. Type 1 diabetes is caused because the body's immune system kills the beta cells in the pancreas. Beta cells make insulin so the body can not manufacture it's own insulin. Many experts think that there is a genetic tendency and that some environmental factors increase the risk of developing the disease.
      What your mother needs to do is keep her blood sugar under control. She must follow a diabetic diet and test her blood sugar and take insulin as her doctor prescribes. I know that you are worried sick about your mom because of all the horror stories that you hear about diabetics dieing at an early age or having severe health problems, but all of this can be avoided if she controls her blood sugar,
      You can help her. I know at 13 a lot is going on in your life with school, friends, family life, but little things like keeping your room picked up, offering to help with laundry, dishes, and meal preparation will go a long ways toward relieving some stress off your mom.
      Let me tell you a story that may help ease your worries. I am 58 years old and my own mother was diagnosed at age 10 (in 1935) with diabetes. She has taken insulin since that time and she raised 3 children and my own father was no picnic to live with either. My mom was not expected to live beyond her 30's. Well, I just saw her this weekend. She is 85 years old, but still living in her own home and her health issues have nothing to do with her diabetes, BUT she stuck to the diabetic diet religiously all her life.
      You are dealing with a lot for a 13 year old. You might try talking to your mom about your feelings or maybe even a school counselor.
      Good luck.

      Other "Types" of Diabetes

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      You may encounter some other "type" names to describe some less common forms of diabetes. Although the American Diabetes Association does not use or endorse these terms, they are defined here because you may run across them in other sources of information.

      Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults, or LADA, is sometimes referred to as "type 1.5 diabetes." LADA is similar to type 1 diabetes because it involves an autoimmune destruction of the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. It usually begins in adulthood and progresses more slowly than type 1 diabetes, but people with LADA do eventually require insulin.

      "Type 3 diabetes" has recently been used to describe a defect in insulin levels in the brain that may be linked to Alzheimer's disease. Type 3 diabetes has also been used to describe the fact that some people with type 1 diabetes become insulin resistant over time, which is usually associated with type 2 diabetes. These patients may benefit from adding an oral medication that improves insulin sensitivity to their regular insulin treatment.

      Because these are no standard definitions for these terms, they are sometimes used to describe other conditions. Some people have also used "type 3 diabetes" to describe someone with type 1 diabetes who also shows signs of increased insulin resistance, which is the hallmark of type 2 diabetes. Others have also called this "double diabetes." Some physicians believe that these patients may benefit from insulin-sensitizing drugs, which usually are not given to patients with type 1 diabetes.


Cure For Diabetes Type 2 With Stem Cell

Diet is the first and the best natural cures for diabetes patients. A proper diabetic diet menu must have a low glycemic index which means the food containing low level of carbohydrates, moderate protein and high fiber. This kind of diet will reduce diabetes blood sugar levels; reduce intake of insulin levels, and lesser the need for medications. It will also help to reduce weight, reduce blood pressure; this cures the diabetes and supports bodys overall health and energy.

Detoxification through fasting - By embarking on a proven supervised fasting program you will detoxify, eliminate chemicals and toxins from your body. By cleansing your system right down to the cellular level you will loose toxic fat, reverse disease, restore your health and vitality and lengthen your life.

Following a right diet plan is one of the techniques of natural cures for diabetes. For any person with blood sugar of any level, the foods to recommend for keeping a controlled sugar level are the whole grains with less carbohydrate, nuts and fruits with less sweet content, vegetables preferably in raw form, dairy products with less fat, unpeeled and half boiled foods, green leaves and flowers, root foods and stem foods with less sugar, unpolished rice and Soya products and all other fiber content varieties.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    I wonder if this could be a cure for diabetes.?
    OK SO HERE GOES. I have been diabetic type whatever I am for three years now. I have done massive amounts of research and came to the conclusion that diabetes is curable right now. I have spent the last three years figuring this out and I want some feed back as to what some might think:

    This would be the generalized procedure I tried to make it as non invasive as possible.

    Step 1: Haemopoietic Stem Cell Extraction.

    Bone marrow contains Haemopoietic Stem Cells that the body regenerates. They are used to create red blood cells and released during emergencies to hasten the repair of tissue damage and expedites the healing process in extreme situations. Extract the bone marrow and use a process to separate the stem cells from the marrow.

    2. Injection into area: ISLETS OF LANGERHANS : of the pancreas.

    Take your newly acquired stem cells and have them injected into your this area of your pancreas to have your Islet cells repaired. The Islet cells create the ever important BETA CELLS, they manage sugars in the blood by releasing Insulin.

    3. Sever all ability to feel pain in the pancreas region.

    Disable the Neuro-Peptide that receives outward stimulus and converts it to a pain signal and sends the signal to the brain. Disabling the pain receptors in the pancreas will benefit the diabetic patient by eliminating inflammation. Reducing the inflammation to the area will allow the cells to thrive and regenerate quicker.

    So here is an answer to some questions that may arise.

    1. Stem Cells aren't allowed to be used.

    Not true. The issue of stem cells has always been a humanitarian one. It was argued that stem cells were harvested from live fetus' and yes that is inhumane treatment of a human life. But this has to do with informed consent and the willingness of the patient to undergo the procedure. Since the stem cells belong to the patient there is no humanitarian issue as the patient has chosen to undergo the procedure and has been informed of the risks involved. The stem cells harvested would be only used for the intended purpose of organ restructuring and intense tissue damage repair.

    2. The issue of rejection risk.

    The risk is not even within the realm of likely. The fact that the Haemopoietic Stem Cells were specifically extracted from the marrow of the patient. Donor match is 100% likely...Rejection 0% likely.

    3. Legal Issues

    There are legal issues that prevent such procedures at times and in some states however if a patient has been properly informed of the risks and has consented and signed the waiver for the procedure there are no legal issues to be concerned with.

    Okay. Now that I have presented my theory here, I would like to know if anyone has something to add.

    Does it sound like a good procedure to build off of?

    • ANSWER:
      you know, it really wouldn't hurt to pound the door of the american diabetes association until they patched you thru to a doc that could tell you why this wouldn't work... my hunch is as with most diseases/disorders... genetic is the way to go... whats to stop this from reoccuring.. good luck with this, and truley if its buggin you, go for it... einstein didn't let people who called him retarded stand in his way...

  4. QUESTION:
    Are there any alternative treatments/cures for Diabetes?
    In 1995 I suffered from acute pancreatitis. Surgeons removed 90% of my pancreas and this left me Type 2 diabetic. I was doing fine on pills until this past december my Endocrinologist decided to put me on Humulin R(about 15 units before meals) and and later on added Lantus(about 55 units 2x day) Insulins. In addition I've eaten healthier but I've gained about 20lbs. I really hate this and I want to get off insulin but doctors tell me that i had been using the pills (glyburide/metformin < and other variants of all these before that> and Actos) for too long and its not healthy for my liver. I'd prefer to not be on insulin dependency. I know there are stem cell studies and other research going on. But is there anything else I should be looking into ? Is insulin safe? The ingredients are horrific!
    Has anyone had success with other methods???

    • ANSWER:
      For type I and type II diabetics...

      I've found a wonderful book that will help you control your diabetes and minimize or even eliminate the complications. Some folks who became diabetic due to poor diet and obesity are effectively cured by following the advice in this book. I'm a type II, but it helps all types, especially those who became diabetic due to poor eating habits. It's by an author who has really done his homework, Patrick Quillin, Phd. I have tried his suggestions and found them to be very helpful. I have no complications whatsoever and my blood sugar levels are quite stable. Yes, I still have to take Metformin (Glucophage) daily, but it's the minimum dosage (500mg) and I only have to take it twice a day. I have been off Metformin for as much as a week, but this was with vigorous exercise. Many, what I call, non-hereditary type IIs (those that don't have a recent relative who had it) have gotten off medication completely, just with diet, exercise, and supplements. So, in some instances, it most certainly can be 'effectively' cured.

      The book explains what's going on in our system and what to do about it. It's really easy and inexpensive. It's basically diet, supplements and exercise. For example, did you know that cinnamon helps blood sugar absorbtion? It also controls cholesterol and triglycerides. This is according to the USDA: http://www.ars.usda.gov/is/np/fnrb/fnrb0104.htm#pinch

      For men: Are you suffering from erectile dysfunction? I was. Yes, WAS. Now that everything's under control, I'm able to have nearly normal sex again.

    Diabetes Type 1
    Diabetes is a disease in which blood glucose levels are above normal. People with diabetes have problems using food for energy. After a meal, carbohydrates in food are broken down into a sugar called glucose, which is carried by the blood to cells throughout the body. Cells require insulin, a hormone made in the pancreas, to help use blood glucose for energy. People develop diabetes because the pancreas does not make enough insulin or because the cells in the muscles, liver, and fat do not respond to insulin properly, or both. As a result, the amount of glucose in the blood increases while the cells are starved of energy.
    Prior to 1997, the type of diabetes typically diagnosed in young people was called juvenile diabetes or type 1. Diabetes emerging in adults was called adult-onset diabetes or type 2. Then in 1997, the official names of the types were changed to type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is the second most common chronic disease in children (after asthma). About 13,000 new cases are diagnosed in the U.S. each year. Patients with type 1 diabetes make up about 5 percent of all cases of diabetes. It most commonly appears in girls and boys when they are about 14 years old. Usually, type 1 diabetes is first diagnosed in children, teenagers, or young adults but it can occur at any age. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the beta cells in the pancreas that make insulin. As a result, the pancreas does not make insulin, a hormone which helps use blood sugar (glucose) for energy. The cells become starved of energy and there is an excess of glucose in the blood. People with Type 1 diabetes must have daily injections of insulin to live. Proper diet, exercise and home blood sugar monitoring are essential to manage the disease. Food and exercise must also be balanced because of the risk of hypoglycemia, low blood sugar, and hyperglycemia, high blood sugar. Both are life threatening concerns. When hypoglycemia develops, cells are not getting enough glucose. Confusion, loss of consciousness, comma and death results when the brain is deprived of glucose for too long. Hyperglycemia and prolonged absence of insulin may lead to ketoacidosis, the accumulation of ketones in the blood when the body uses fat for energy instead of glucose. Ketones make the blood acidic and slow down all body functions. Like hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia can also lead to comma and death. The only cure available today for type 1 diabetes is a pancreas transplant, which is rarely done. Because both pancreas transplants and kidney transplants require lifelong use of powerful drugs to suppress immune reactions that can reject the organs, pancreatic transplants are usually done to those with type 1 diabetes who also need a kidney transplant. The side effects of immune- suppressive drugs can be severe and even worse than the disease. One or two people out of every 10 who get the surgery die within a year. Also the new pancreas is rejected by half of the people who get this operation. If the transplant fails, diabetes returns. Recently, experimental treatments with stem cells have shown some promise. For most people, type 1 diabetes is a life-long disease that can be effectively managed with insulin.

    Signs and Symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes
    •Urinates frequently. The kidneys respond to high levels of glucose in the bloodstream by flushing out the extra glucose in urine. A child with diabetes needs to urinate more frequently and in larger volumes.
    •Is abnormally thirsty. Because the child is loosing so much fluid from peeing so much, he or she becomes very thirsty to help avoid becoming dehydrated. A child who has developed diabetes drinks a lot in an attempt to keep the level of body water normal.
    •Loses weight. (or fails to gain weight as he or she grows) in spite of a good appetite. Kids and teens who develop type 1 diabetes may have an increased appetite, but often lose weight. This is because the body breaks down muscle and stored fat in an attempt the provide fuel to the hungry cells.
    •Often feels tired. Because the body can’t use glucose for energy properly.

    But in some cases, other symptoms may be the signal that something is wrong. Sometimes the first sign of diabetes is bedwetting in a child who has been dry at night. The possibility of diabetes should also be suspected if a vaginal yeast infection (also called a Candida infection) occurs in a girl who hasn’t started puberty yet. If these early symptoms of diabetes aren’t recognized and treatment isn’t started, chemicals called ketones can build up in the child’s blood and cause stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, fruity- smelling breath, breathing problems; even loss of consciousness. Sometimes these symptoms are mistaken f

  2. QUESTION:
    every thing to know bout Nick Jonas(P.S,Not a question, just for fans who want to know every thing bout him)?
    Nicholas Jerry "Nick" Jonas (born September 16, 1992) is an American singer-songwriter, musician and actor best known as one of the Jonas Brothers, a pop-rock band he formed with his brothers Joe and Kevin. The Jonas Brothers originally started as an attempted solo singing career for Nick, but the record producer liked the sound when his brothers sang backup for him. He currently stars in the Disney Channel original series JONAS as Nick Lucas, alongside his brothers. Currently he has formed the band Nick Jonas & The Administration, which released its first album in 2010.
    Nick Jonas was born in Dallas, Texas,[1] the son of Denise, a former sign language teacher and singer, and Paul Kevin Jonas Sr., a songwriter, musician, and former ordained minister at an Assemblies of God church.[2][3][4] He was raised in Wyckoff, New Jersey and home schooled by his mother. Nick is of Cherokee, Irish (from his maternal grandfather), Italian, and German descent.[5][6]

    He was diagnosed with Type I diabetes at the age of 13 and wears an OmniPod insulin pump to help him manage his condition.[7] He has developed the Change for the Children Foundation. Partnering with five different charities, their goal is to raise money and awareness for diabetes.[8] He also developed a public service announcement with the Washington Nationals to support diabetes care at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.[9]

    Since August 6, 2008, Bayer Diabetes Care has partnered with Jonas as a diabetes ambassador to promote the idea for young people to manage their diabetes.[10] Jonas testified in the U.S. Senate to promote more research funding for the condition.[11]

    Miley Cyrus has stated that she dated Jonas from June 2006 to December 2007. Cyrus claimed they were "in love" and began dating soon after they first met.[12][13]
    Acting
    Broadway and Theatre
    Jonas's career started when he was discovered at the age of 6 in a barber shop while his mother was getting her hair cut and was referred to a professional show business manager.[14][15][16] At the age of 7, he began performing on Broadway.[17][18] He had acted in several plays, including A Christmas Carol (in 2000 as Tiny Tim and Scrooge at eight), Annie Get Your Gun (in 2001 as Little Jake), Beauty and the Beast (in 2002 as Chip), and Les Misérables (in 2003 as Gavroche).[18][19][20][21] After Les Misérables closed, he performed in The Sound of Music (as Kurt) at the Paper Mill Playhouse.[22]
    Singing
    Solo artist
    In 2002 while performing in Beauty and the Beast, Nick had written a song with his father called "Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer)." With background vocals from the Beauty and the Beast cast, Nick performed the song on the 2002 annual Broadway "Equity Fights AIDS" album, Broadway's Greatest Gifts: Carols for a Cure, Vol. 4.[28][29] In November 2003, INO Records received a demo copy of "Joy To The World (A Christmas Prayer)."[30] The label released the song to Christian radio, where it quickly became popular on Record & Radio's Christian Adult Contemporary Chart.[29] While Nick was working on his solo project, Joe followed in his footsteps to Broadway, appearing in Baz Lurhmann's production of La Boheme.

    By September 2004, an executive at Columbia Records found out about Nick's song.[28][29] Nick was soon jointly signed to INO Records and Columbia Records and released the single "Dear God".[31][32] A second single, "Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer)" (a new solo recording), was released on November 16.[33] It was supposed to be followed by a December release of a self-titled solo album Nicholas Jonas, but the album was pushed back.[34] It did, however, get a limited release.[35] Nick, along with Kevin and Joe, had written several other songs for the album.[28]

    In early 2005, Columbia Records' new president, Steve Greenberg, listened to Nick's record. While Greenberg did not like the album, he did like Nick's voice.[36]

    Nick Jonas is currently working on a side project from the Jonas Brothers called "Nick Jonas and the Administration". Their debut album Who I Am was released February 2, 2010. The band members consist of Tommy Barbarella on keyboard, Michael Bland on drums, John Fields on bass, and David Ryan Harris on guitar.[37] Although David Ryan Harris recorded guitar in the studio for Who I Am he was unable to go on tour with the rest of band and was ultimately replaced by Sonny Thompson.

    In January 2010 Jonas embarked on the Who I Am Tour with the Administration. This was Jonas' first tour without his brothers. The tour consisted of 22 dates that began on January 2, 2010 in Dallas, Texas and concluded on January 30, 2010 in Berkeley, California.

      Anyway, the best hope for curing T2 diabetes is prevention, both at the genetic level and the lifestyle level.

  3. QUESTION:
    Any major breakthroughs or hard research for Type 1 Diabetes?
    There has been many steps towards curing Type 2 Diabetes and caring/preventing it. Has there been any major research or giant steps towards Type 1 Diabetes I may have missed? The reason I'm concerned is my girlfriend is Type 1 Diabetic (heredity) and I hate to see her need to stop having fun because she has to go take insulin (she can't use the automatic pump) and we can't horse around that much because her level will drop very fast. I just want to know if there's any chance of a giant leap to caring, maybe even CURING, type 1 that would be in her life. She is still very young.

    • ANSWER:
      the latest research is looking into implantation of stem cells in the pancreas of type 1 diabetics to see if they will become islet cells and produce insulin. It has worked in some animals, not in others.. the research is ongoing.

  4. QUESTION:
    Cures for type 2 Diabetes?
    I'm doing school homework. What research is being done into cures for diabetes? I've done one of type 1 diabetes.. But what methods are there to 'cure' or help treat type 2 Diabetes? I've been googling, but so far... hardly anything is helping me :/ Any help/Knowledge is helpful

    • ANSWER:
      Type 1 Diabetes is caused by the failure of an internal organ called the PANCREAS. The pancreas make insulin, and when the pancreas fails you become diabetic. At this time, there is NO CURE for Type 1 Diabetes. It is TREATED by taking insulin injection to replace the insulin that the pancreas no longer makes.

      Type 2 Diabetes is a LIFESTYLE disease. It is caused by being overweight. When this happens, the pancreas is STILL WORKING (probably normally), but you have "too much body" for the amount of insulin produced.

      The treatment for Type 2 Diabetes is simple: Eat less, exercises more, and lose weight. Until the patient is entirely successful t this, they may need various medication, adn even insulin injections. But once the Type 2 Diabetic gets their body weight and diet under control, the symptoms of diabetes will go away.

      THERE IS NO CURE FOR TYPE 2 DIABETES!! It can be CONTROLLED, but if the patient reverts back to their old lazy, eat-anything habits, they will gain weight and the diabetes will return

    • ANSWER:
      The needle is called an insulin syringe and it is used to inject insulin

      There is no cure for diabetes but some medications are insulin, Glucophage, Precose, Glyset, metformin, Januvia.

      Diet is also very important to a diabetic. We must watch our intake of sugar and also carbohydrates, such as bread, pasta, and potatoes.

  6. QUESTION:
    Has anyone heard about a cure for diabetes used with...?
    I hear this one scientist found that lettuce could possibly cure diabetes, this guys name is Henry Daniell... has anyone heard about it, I just found out that it was on the news 2 years ago and i never knew a thing about it, until i tried to research about the cure myself... I mean, has anyone heard about any follow ups on that research? and if you want to see it on the news go to youtube and type in "Diabetes cured with lettuce"

    • ANSWER:
      The key to curing a disease that affects 21 million people in the U.S. could be found on your dinner table nearly every night.

      One University of Central Florida professor may have finally unlocked the code to wipe diabetes completely off the map.

      Dr. Henry Daniell and his team of 20 bio-medical researchers have worked for five years, experimenting with genetically modified lettuce and its affect on diabetes patients.

      They have come up with what they believe is a cure for diabetes.

      "This would be not only a cure, but also an inexpensive cure," Daniell said.

      A person with diabetes is sentenced to a lifetime of needles and careful monitoring of their blood sugar levels.

      "I believe that it's going to be a very significant advancement and so far there has been no permanent cure for diabetes," said Daniell. "This is the first time the root cause of the problem, the immune disorder, is tackled."

      Genetically modified lettuce is grown in a lab at UCF.

      A leaf is placed in a machine and injected with the human gene for insulin.

      "We can really be happy that we have made progress that helps a society, especially large numbers of people," said Daniell.

      For people living with diabetes, the find is a major breakthrough.

      Daniell said he has been stunned by the response from his find.

      He's received thousands of e-mails and phone calls, mostly from Florida residents.

      Daniell first tested his insulin-producing lettuce on mice, and the results were shocking.

      "By the end of the study, the diabetic mice had normal blood and urine sugar levels," Daniell said. "And their cells were producing normal levels of insulin."

      These results occurred after just eight weeks of treatment.

      Daniell said if human trials, which are now under way, are successful, it would impact millions of diabetics worldwide and provide a permanent and affordable cure for the disease.

      His team has found a way to grind the lettuce down to a fine green powder that can be distributed in the form of a capsule, which helps regulate the dosage.

      Daniell is currently conducting clinical trials with a major pharmaceutical company.

      If all goes well, this cure for diabetes could be made available to millions of people with diabetes in four years.

      Now if you believe this , I have a bridge over here in THAILAND that I would like to sell to you.
      Pipe dreams are easily sold to the unwary.

    Is it possible to volunteer yourself for stem cell research in America?
    Just curious, would be useful information to know if some kind of unfortunate disease were to pass on to me. My mom has type 2 diabetes and that increases the probability that I will get it later on in life too. Right now I'm completely fine but the future could hold some unwanted surprises. It has already been shown that stem cells can cure type 2 diabetes so....yeah would be nice if it were an available option in the future for me.

  9. QUESTION:
    What do you think of my letter to friends and family asking for jdrf donations?
    Dear Friends and Family,

    On Saturday, October 20th, I will be walking in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with my church youth group, friends and family. As you may know I have juvenile diabetes and I am insulin dependant. As a result my life is far from normal. My daily routine is on a constant schedule in order to stay healthy. I check my blood sugar 5 to 8 times a day and I’m constantly pumping insulin through my pump site which I change every 2-3 days. This equates to approximately 2,920 finger sticks and 183 pump site changes every year. Since I have been diagnosed, I have poked my finger over 9,592,200 times, taken 7,300 shots, and inserted insulin pump sites 1,278 times. And this will continue for the rest of my life unless a cure is found.

    I am the only one in my family with type 1 diabetes. Most people don’t know that it can strike any family and that you can never “grow out of it”. I will be insulin dependant for life. Every day I put great effort into doing things I do not want to do and hoping I do not develop the complications associated with diabetes. You see, the longer I have diabetes the more likely I am to develop complications such as kidney disease, blindness, heart disease, stroke, and nerve damage leading to amputation. Even if I do everything I am supposed to, I can still develop these complications. A cure is the only way out.

    My team has come together to set a goal of ,000 and we would like to ask for your support by sending a tax-deductible contribution to us that we can submit to JDRF on that day. Please help me and the millions of other kids fight diabetes and find a cure.

    JDRF gives more resources to diabetes research than any nonprofit, nongovernmental organization in the world. Over 80% of every dollar raised by JDRF is channeled directly into research efforts. Since 1970, they have provided over 0 million to diabetes research.

    Please support us by making your check payable to “JDRF” and mail it to my address by October 19th. Thank you for your donations and words of support. We are very grateful!!!

  10. QUESTION:
    Is Type 2 giving Type 1 a bad name?
    I strongly believe that type 1 and type 2 diabetes should have different names, i.e. not both referred to as "diabetes". Type 1 diabetes suffers due to it's sharing it's name with type2.

    Type 1 diabetes is genetic, and it is not brought on by something the sufferer did. It was out of his/her hands and they did nothing to cause the illness.

    Some will argue that type 2 diabetes is also genetic, but we all know, and it cannot be denied, that type 2 is avoidable. The reason that sufferers get type2 diabetes is 99% down to their lifestyle. They didn't have to get it, unlike the type 1 sufferer who had no say. Even in the UK alone, a new case of type2 diabetes is diagnosed every 13 seconds and it's due to obesity, smoking, eating too many fatty foods and generally lifestyle choices.

    The vast majority of books dedicated to diabetes are about how to avoid getting it, which is unfair to the type 1 sufferers as they cannot avoid it.

    Because 90%+ sufferers have type 2, it takes away from funding in type 1 and finding a cure. The two illnesses should not have the same name. Type 1 is unavoidable and we need to tackle and research the causes, whereas type 2 could always have been avoided. It's sad for type1 sufferers because all of the media reports talk about how diabetes is linked to obesity and it's not true for type 1, which I think of as true diabetes. Type 1 sufferers must be sick of people thinking they have it because of poor lifestyles.

    Type 2 is giving diabetes a bad name and image in society. Type2 should keep the term "diabetes" as they have stigmatised it and type1 should get a new name. They are not the same!
    I am soooo not alone Just found the following web page:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/riva-greenberg/the-type-1-versus-type-2_b_611662.html

    Shocking how similar the views are to mine

    • ANSWER:
      I agree with you, but only that type 2 diabetes should have a different name. Even people who have absolutely no genetic family history of diabetes can get type 1 diabetes. ALL of the type 1 diabetics I have talked to either face to face or online had some kind of viral infection, often with a high fever for several days, before they were diagnosed. For those who want to give my response a thumbs down, you honestly don't know what you are talking about. Type 2 definitely can be genetic. Type 1 may not be, although if there is a genetic predisposition for type 2 diabetes because of racial heritage, like Native American Indian blood, you may be more susceptible to developing type 1 if you get a viral infection. I had roseola, a strep infection, when a 1 year and 8 months old. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 26 months old in May, 1955. A young adult who was diagnosed with type 1 in her 20's had had pneumonia. Two brother's had chicken pox before they were diagnosed. I suspect Mary Tyler Moore also had some type of viral infection before she was diagnosed in 1969. I also believe that type 1 diabetes is NOT a "conventional" auto-immune disease, as the paradigm for the last 25 years or so claims. Have your EVER heard of a type 1 diabetic going into remission where they need significantly less insulin for weeks or months, discounting the effects that male or female hormone cycles can have? I haven't, but there very well may be gaps in my knowledge that I am not aware of. I didn't know until September 1 this year that Type 1 diabetics can become insulin resistant. I've been a type 1 diabetic for almost 55.5 years, long before there WAS a type 1 and type 2. Even though I am now taking two shots of Levimer and 4 shots of Novolog a day, all of my doses are less than 10 units. The nursing home I was in for 3 months was giving me 18 units of Levimer twice a day, and they couldn't figure why my BS was dropping into the 40's (mg/dcl) around 4 am after the midnight to 2 am dose of Levimer. Then they forgot to give me ANY Levimer for two or three days. Of course I was throwing up at meals (fortunately I was eating in my room most of the time) because my blood sugar was in the 400's and 500's. The doctor, who specialized in respiratory problems ( I had double pneumonia when I was admitted to the hospital), and the physician's assistant ( who owned the nursing home along with his wife) had me on Glucophage and Januvia , oral medications for type 2 diabetes as well. Glucophage is for insulin resistant type 2. My "sister" in New Orleans who is an M.D. and is now a type 2, takes Glucophage (and Avendia. Yikes!) The nursing home didn't put me on a diabetic feeding formula until I threatened to make a big stink about it. Thank goodness the one excellent night shift LPN told me that it wasn't a diabetic formula..

      Sorry. I'm letting off steam. I was released from the nursing home on May 9. I know MANY medical personnel, including M.D.s, do not realize that type 1 and type 2 are almost two different diseases. Then there the diabetics who have low tolerance for fructose or lactose, but not sucrose. Those are different types of diabetes, not diabetes mellitus.

      (My "sister" is not my blood sister. We were both only children raised by older parents in the 1950's and 1960's. We've been close friends for more than 39 years, mostly because we think alike. We can have a conversation while driving two different cars, and finish each other 's sentences. She's the only friend who can follow the sudden "left turns" in my conversation without warning. Her conversation can take left turns too. ;-D )

  11. QUESTION:
    DIABETES?? HEART FAILURE??? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…?
    Well, The first day, which was 2 weeks ago I all of a sudden felt light-headed, and when I stood up I felt dizzy, I drank 2 cups of water, and lied on my bed, and felt better. Me and my mom decided to go to the doctor straight away. The first doctor was male. He checked my blood pressure, and said it was absolutely fine for my age. He said since it is only the first day he isn't so sure about it. I went to the next doctor, she said it might be a short wave.
    I researched, and saw that I mayb have diabetes or CHF (congestive heart failure)
    I straight away started excercising. 20 minutes + a day, and started eat healthy. I lost 5 pounds, though I've had abit of shortness of breath, and sudden chest pain. I am supposed to weigh 48 or less at age 12, but I weigh 66.
    If I lose the rest of my unwanted weight, and continue eating healthy, will I be fine? will all these symptoms go away? or get worse? I don't want to go to the doctor just now, HELP?!
    Also will kids my age who have CHF need a heart transplant? or medicine??! can you cure CHF? or diabetes? type 2?
    Also My family has never had a history of having heart failure, or diabetes. The current symptoms I have is shortness of breath, chest pain at some times, and dizziness at random moments, but goes away. I've never fainted, collapsed, or had a heart attack. I don't feel so tired after having a 20 minute - 40 minute exercise, I don't have any swollen parts in the body, though the tips of my fingers are cold, and my toes are cold, I think its because of really cold weather here, and I don't usually wear slippers, socks at home. please help me in what should I be doing,

    • ANSWER:
      Heart disease and diabetes are scary things and it is ok to be concerned about them. Since you don't have a family history that is great. You may want to ask your MD to do a complete physical which will include blood work and a glucose level. If you are really concerned about diabetes asking them to do an A1C test, this will test your average blood sugar over a period of time. It is wonderful that you are eating healthy, exercising and aware of your weight. However it does become another thing if you are excessively worried about your health. If you are increasingly anxious that something is wrong with you have a physical, write out your concerns for your doctor and hopefully he/she can address what your worries are. If you are still really worried maybe you are struggling with some anxiety issues and could benefit from counseling. If it is anxiety it would not be uncommon for you to be aware of every little beat of your heart and every little twinge of a muscle. Plus anxiety is very common. This is not to in any way dismiss your fears but if your fears are excessive this could be what is troubling you. Be healthy and feel better soon.

  12. QUESTION:
    how does royal jelly and bee propolis affect diabetes?
    I am an American english teacher in China. I have recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. My Chinese friends suggested I start taking a daily combination of royal jelly and propolis. I am totally sold on it. I haven't taken any diabetic medication in six months and my blood sugar levels have been consistently normal. I even eat something sugary about once every two weeks. I highly recommend these products to anyone with diabetes. My Chinese friends even believe that after several years of daily doses of rj and bp there's a chance diabetes can be completely cured! I have searched and searched the internet for how these products affect diabetes and, apparently, there's been little research done on it in the West. Can anyone illuminate me on this?

    • ANSWER:
      I've not heard of either one. Controlling type two diabetes is not that hard if you learn a few simple dos and don'ts. What works very well for me is a combo of supplements along with a healthy diet, exercise, and weight control. I, too, eat sugary stuff now and then with no adverse affects. In fact, one of my sources claims that a small amount of sugar can actually help type two diabetics. I'm a little skeptical, but so far, my numbers are pretty good.

  13. QUESTION:
    I wonder if this could be a cure for diabetes.?
    OK SO HERE GOES. I have been diabetic type whatever I am for three years now. I have done massive amounts of research and came to the conclusion that diabetes is curable right now. I have spent the last three years figuring this out and I want some feed back as to what some might think:

    This would be the generalized procedure I tried to make it as non invasive as possible.

    Step 1: Haemopoietic Stem Cell Extraction.

    Bone marrow contains Haemopoietic Stem Cells that the body regenerates. They are used to create red blood cells and released during emergencies to hasten the repair of tissue damage and expedites the healing process in extreme situations. Extract the bone marrow and use a process to separate the stem cells from the marrow.

    2. Injection into area: ISLETS OF LANGERHANS : of the pancreas.

    Take your newly acquired stem cells and have them injected into your this area of your pancreas to have your Islet cells repaired. The Islet cells create the ever important BETA CELLS, they manage sugars in the blood by releasing Insulin.

    3. Sever all ability to feel pain in the pancreas region.

    Disable the Neuro-Peptide that receives outward stimulus and converts it to a pain signal and sends the signal to the brain. Disabling the pain receptors in the pancreas will benefit the diabetic patient by eliminating inflammation. Reducing the inflammation to the area will allow the cells to thrive and regenerate quicker.

    So here is an answer to some questions that may arise.

    1. Stem Cells aren't allowed to be used.

    Not true. The issue of stem cells has always been a humanitarian one. It was argued that stem cells were harvested from live fetus' and yes that is inhumane treatment of a human life. But this has to do with informed consent and the willingness of the patient to undergo the procedure. Since the stem cells belong to the patient there is no humanitarian issue as the patient has chosen to undergo the procedure and has been informed of the risks involved. The stem cells harvested would be only used for the intended purpose of organ restructuring and intense tissue damage repair.

    2. The issue of rejection risk.

    The risk is not even within the realm of likely. The fact that the Haemopoietic Stem Cells were specifically extracted from the marrow of the patient. Donor match is 100% likely...Rejection 0% likely.

    3. Legal Issues

    There are legal issues that prevent such procedures at times and in some states however if a patient has been properly informed of the risks and has consented and signed the waiver for the procedure there are no legal issues to be concerned with.

    Okay. Now that I have presented my theory here, I would like to know if anyone has something to add.

    Does it sound like a good procedure to build off of?

    • ANSWER:
      you know, it really wouldn't hurt to pound the door of the american diabetes association until they patched you thru to a doc that could tell you why this wouldn't work... my hunch is as with most diseases/disorders... genetic is the way to go... whats to stop this from reoccuring.. good luck with this, and truley if its buggin you, go for it... einstein didn't let people who called him retarded stand in his way...

  14. QUESTION:
    Are there any alternative treatments/cures for Diabetes?
    In 1995 I suffered from acute pancreatitis. Surgeons removed 90% of my pancreas and this left me Type 2 diabetic. I was doing fine on pills until this past december my Endocrinologist decided to put me on Humulin R(about 15 units before meals) and and later on added Lantus(about 55 units 2x day) Insulins. In addition I've eaten healthier but I've gained about 20lbs. I really hate this and I want to get off insulin but doctors tell me that i had been using the pills (glyburide/metformin < and other variants of all these before that> and Actos) for too long and its not healthy for my liver. I'd prefer to not be on insulin dependency. I know there are stem cell studies and other research going on. But is there anything else I should be looking into ? Is insulin safe? The ingredients are horrific!
    Has anyone had success with other methods???

    • ANSWER:
      For type I and type II diabetics...

      I've found a wonderful book that will help you control your diabetes and minimize or even eliminate the complications. Some folks who became diabetic due to poor diet and obesity are effectively cured by following the advice in this book. I'm a type II, but it helps all types, especially those who became diabetic due to poor eating habits. It's by an author who has really done his homework, Patrick Quillin, Phd. I have tried his suggestions and found them to be very helpful. I have no complications whatsoever and my blood sugar levels are quite stable. Yes, I still have to take Metformin (Glucophage) daily, but it's the minimum dosage (500mg) and I only have to take it twice a day. I have been off Metformin for as much as a week, but this was with vigorous exercise. Many, what I call, non-hereditary type IIs (those that don't have a recent relative who had it) have gotten off medication completely, just with diet, exercise, and supplements. So, in some instances, it most certainly can be 'effectively' cured.

      The book explains what's going on in our system and what to do about it. It's really easy and inexpensive. It's basically diet, supplements and exercise. For example, did you know that cinnamon helps blood sugar absorbtion? It also controls cholesterol and triglycerides. This is according to the USDA: http://www.ars.usda.gov/is/np/fnrb/fnrb0104.htm#pinch

  15. QUESTION:
    The cancer research consipiracy, part II?
    This is to the conspiracy buffs, and believers of the all-purpose, magical, all-natural, miracle cancer cure. There are some things you should know about the pharmaceutical industry. I do not mean this in a condescending manner, but as an inside view.
    - First, for the "natural" cure : 50% of all conventional medecine on the market is of natural origin (including taxol, the most widely used chemo agent). Many research groups test natural extracts on cancer cell lines, including at NIH. We have been doing this for other group ourselves. So far, nothing threw anybody on their backsides. The pharmas do the same, because you CAN patent a natural extract. If you do not believe me, go check some patents.
    - Second, a pharma makes money selling pills, not doing research. Research costs money.
    - Third, the best money makers for pharmas are chronic conditions. Antidepressors, anti-hypertension, diabetes type 2, LDL control, asthma and arthritis in particular, are very big.
    All these conditions are aggravated by bad food habits and lack of exercise. So basically, pharmas are making money out of people's lazyness. I know it feels bad to be told that we are part of the problem, but here it is.
    For those who wonder, I do have moderate asthma , and my best friend was recently diagnosed with cancer. And I did NOT say that lifestyle CAUSES these conditions, but that it AGGRAVATES them. Asthma has been shown to become a much worse problem in obese people, because body fat is actually a gland that produces pro-inflammatory hormones (this was observed in my institute).
    A lot of the people having these conditions, especially type 2 diabetes (NOT type 1) could have avoided them, or have a later onset, with a better lifestyle. I personnaly know an obese 10-years-old boy with type 2 diabetes, for god's sake ! It's time we do something.
    People dont want to make an effort ! If you do not believe me, please go to the diet & fitness section, and count the number of questions involving people asking for a no-effort way to lose weight.
    A precision on what can be patented, and what cannot. I said you can patent a natural EXTRACT, meaning the method of extraction. It sometimes may make all the difference between what is efficient and what is not.
    You can also patent a TREATMENT, meaning what is given, in what dosage, how, and for what.
    But there's a hitch : you have to prove it is efficient, as in any other publication !
    And vitamins are ALREADY part of the "conventional" treatment of some cancers ! Vitamin D is given in leukemia because it is PROVEN to promote cell differentiation !

    • ANSWER:
      Hi THere

      I like the fact you have some guts to talk about the actual facts, but our society is programed for simple minded thinking and we have so much ignorance its really sad.

      Your fighting a tough battle with this forum, but if only one person hears you then its worth it. I have helped many people over the years to heal their diseases and one of the most important steps and that is cleansing the toxins out of the body. Especially the colon! When you dont have regular bowel movements daily the toxins sit in the colon and get into the blood stream. That is what causes illness and disease (even Leukemia). Cancer is not inherited, it is a lifestyle that has driven the patient to his condition.

      Anyone reading this with doubts go see the herbdoc.com and realize that he has healed thousands of people for decades (had a clininc in Malibu for 20 years and closed in 1992 because the FDA said you're healing to many people). Once you understand how the body rids of toxins, everything becomes a lot more clear.

      Keep pressing on to those who will at least listen.

  16. QUESTION:
    Why are so many people against >>Embryonic<< stem cell research?
    I'll post my biology essay on embryonic stem cell research after I see the amount of right-wing religious fanatic replies.

    But just to sum it up to reduce the number of idiotic replies:

    1. Embryonic stem cells are not alive. They are as fully conscious as a tree. There is no higher brain function at the point they are removed from the womb.

    2. More embryos are lost to natural reasons than would be taken to form stem cells.

    3. The millions of people who suffer from an incurable disease or cell damage (eg. Parkinson's, Diabetes Type 1, nerve tissue damage, brain damage, etc.) can be cured easily.

    P.S. I'm not talking about cloning embryonic cells to mass produce pluripotent cells for therapy. Entirely different topic.

    • ANSWER:
      Because they perceive conception as the beginning of a human life. So they object to taking a very small, yet fully living and ready to grow human embryo, and using it like a chemical in a laboratory.

  18. QUESTION:
    every thing to know bout Nick Jonas(P.S,Not a question, just for fans who want to know every thing bout him)?
    Nicholas Jerry "Nick" Jonas (born September 16, 1992) is an American singer-songwriter, musician and actor best known as one of the Jonas Brothers, a pop-rock band he formed with his brothers Joe and Kevin. The Jonas Brothers originally started as an attempted solo singing career for Nick, but the record producer liked the sound when his brothers sang backup for him. He currently stars in the Disney Channel original series JONAS as Nick Lucas, alongside his brothers. Currently he has formed the band Nick Jonas & The Administration, which released its first album in 2010.
    Nick Jonas was born in Dallas, Texas,[1] the son of Denise, a former sign language teacher and singer, and Paul Kevin Jonas Sr., a songwriter, musician, and former ordained minister at an Assemblies of God church.[2][3][4] He was raised in Wyckoff, New Jersey and home schooled by his mother. Nick is of Cherokee, Irish (from his maternal grandfather), Italian, and German descent.[5][6]

    He was diagnosed with Type I diabetes at the age of 13 and wears an OmniPod insulin pump to help him manage his condition.[7] He has developed the Change for the Children Foundation. Partnering with five different charities, their goal is to raise money and awareness for diabetes.[8] He also developed a public service announcement with the Washington Nationals to support diabetes care at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.[9]

    Since August 6, 2008, Bayer Diabetes Care has partnered with Jonas as a diabetes ambassador to promote the idea for young people to manage their diabetes.[10] Jonas testified in the U.S. Senate to promote more research funding for the condition.[11]

    Miley Cyrus has stated that she dated Jonas from June 2006 to December 2007. Cyrus claimed they were "in love" and began dating soon after they first met.[12][13]
    Acting
    Broadway and Theatre
    Jonas's career started when he was discovered at the age of 6 in a barber shop while his mother was getting her hair cut and was referred to a professional show business manager.[14][15][16] At the age of 7, he began performing on Broadway.[17][18] He had acted in several plays, including A Christmas Carol (in 2000 as Tiny Tim and Scrooge at eight), Annie Get Your Gun (in 2001 as Little Jake), Beauty and the Beast (in 2002 as Chip), and Les Misérables (in 2003 as Gavroche).[18][19][20][21] After Les Misérables closed, he performed in The Sound of Music (as Kurt) at the Paper Mill Playhouse.[22]
    Singing
    Solo artist
    In 2002 while performing in Beauty and the Beast, Nick had written a song with his father called "Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer)." With background vocals from the Beauty and the Beast cast, Nick performed the song on the 2002 annual Broadway "Equity Fights AIDS" album, Broadway's Greatest Gifts: Carols for a Cure, Vol. 4.[28][29] In November 2003, INO Records received a demo copy of "Joy To The World (A Christmas Prayer)."[30] The label released the song to Christian radio, where it quickly became popular on Record & Radio's Christian Adult Contemporary Chart.[29] While Nick was working on his solo project, Joe followed in his footsteps to Broadway, appearing in Baz Lurhmann's production of La Boheme.

    By September 2004, an executive at Columbia Records found out about Nick's song.[28][29] Nick was soon jointly signed to INO Records and Columbia Records and released the single "Dear God".[31][32] A second single, "Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer)" (a new solo recording), was released on November 16.[33] It was supposed to be followed by a December release of a self-titled solo album Nicholas Jonas, but the album was pushed back.[34] It did, however, get a limited release.[35] Nick, along with Kevin and Joe, had written several other songs for the album.[28]

    In early 2005, Columbia Records' new president, Steve Greenberg, listened to Nick's record. While Greenberg did not like the album, he did like Nick's voice.[36]

    Nick Jonas is currently working on a side project from the Jonas Brothers called "Nick Jonas and the Administration". Their debut album Who I Am was released February 2, 2010. The band members consist of Tommy Barbarella on keyboard, Michael Bland on drums, John Fields on bass, and David Ryan Harris on guitar.[37] Although David Ryan Harris recorded guitar in the studio for Who I Am he was unable to go on tour with the rest of band and was ultimately replaced by Sonny Thompson.

    In January 2010 Jonas embarked on the Who I Am Tour with the Administration. This was Jonas' first tour without his brothers. The tour consisted of 22 dates that began on January 2, 2010 in Dallas, Texas and concluded on January 30, 2010 in Berkeley, California.

  19. QUESTION:
    Born again Christian think they should spread the word, but does this mean to harass?
    On Thanksgiving Day we hosted Thanksgiving for my husband's family. We have been doing this for 17 years. At the end of the day as people were leaving, my BIL and his wife (who is my husband's sister) approached us after we were alone.

    First, let me explain. I have 2 children. One is 10 and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes last year. The other is 8. We are Catholic and I send my kids to private Catholic schools. My BIL is a born again Christian.

    My BIL started out by telling us a story about how someone at his church had a miracle and was healed. He then continued to say that we should be doing this for our daughter rather than relying upon doctors to cure her. He said the JDRF walk we participate in each year was wrong. We told him that we had strong faith in God and miracles too but that we did not see anything wrong in supporting medical research as well. We could do both. He became frustrated with us and in no time was yelling "you have to get the demons out of your daughter".

    This led to more. He continued on to slam his fist on my kitchen island and demanded to know how we prayed, how we talked to God, the EXACT date we were saved. Since we are Catholic we believe that baptism is when we are born again. He would not accept that. He would not listen. He argued with us and argued. I told him to stop. That I was Catholic and he was not going to change my faith or my beliefs. He laughed at me and said "what is Catholic???" He challenged me to recite some Bible verses then if I really was strong in my faith. He wouldn't stop. He continued on and even attacked us then about Halloween and Santa Claus. My 8 year old son was listening. It got so bad that we had to virtually yell at him to get out of our home and lead him out.

    I cried for an hour after this happened. I didn't sleep at all that night. I felt violated in my own home. I probably wouldn't have felt worse if I had been actually buglarized. My son kept coming to me and hugging me because he was confused his uncle did this and Mom and Dad were upset.

    My husband and I have talked about this extensively and we have come to the conclusion that we just can't be around this man. We don't want him near our children. I hate to do that as I am very close to my family, but he hurt us so deep and I don't think he will ever "get" it either that he did. He honestly believes he was speaking the truth to us and we were hurt by hearing the truth. I did some research and I see that they are told to expect anger from people when they spread their word. I just don't understand how they can feel this is at all right to do this.

    I just am lost with how we were attacked like this. I still am emotional.

    • ANSWER:
      Your brother in law is lost in a cult and certainly is not "born again" as you are in the biblical sense. You are correct that you are born again by your baptism. As for the date you were saved, no one can answer that question because we do not have an expiration date stamped on our heel and salvation occurs at judgment and is the result of a sanctified soul at death. It is not an emotional or intellectual assent to belief in our Lord as he has been deceived into believing. What he believes is a sin called presumption. The truth is no one knows if or when anyone will be saved.

      I think a great part of what you are feeling is frustration of not being able to defend your faith against this evil attack. I advise you to see this as an opportunity to learn about your faith so that you are not grasping for answers if this happens again. Get Karl Keatings book Catholicism and Fundamentalism published by Ignatius Press. This and studying the Scriptures will give you the weapons and armor to fight these spiritual battles. You will be prepared to witness to others like your brother in law which is the instruction to every Catholic Christian when we leave the Mass. God bless!

  21. QUESTION:
    Stem Cell Survey.......?
    I need this info. for a research paper for my class. I would appreciate it if you could take a couple minutes to do it. Thank you!

    Stem cells are a unique type of cells that can specialize into just about any type of cell in the body resulting in a huge potential in the medical world. They can be found in places in the body like in bone marrow (called adult stem cells) or obtained through the destruction of an embryo (called embryonic stem cells). Note: Embryonic stem cells are able to specialize into a wider variety of cells than in adult stem cells resulting in a wider potential of cures for diseases and conditions.

    1. Are you male or female?

    2. What is your age?

    3. How much do you agree with the following statements? Note: Answer strongly disagree, disagree, neutral, agree or strongly agree to the following,

    a)It is ethical to use embryonic stem cells for medical purposes.

    b)Just because we never seen any cures, doesn’t mean we should give up on stem cell research.

    c)I believe that stem cell procedures used today can improve the quality of life of others.

    4. Do you believe that stem cell research will eventually lead to a cure of serious medical conditions such as Parkinson’s, Diabetes and Multiple Sclerosis?

    5. Do you think that the government should fund stem cell research?

    6. Do you think it would be more beneficial to study adult stem cells rather than embryonic stem
    cells?

    My Dr. put me on Vitamin D2?
    My Doctor prescribed vitamin D2 1.25 mg tablets for me.?
    He told me my vitamin D2 level was 7, and should be between 30-80. I take 300 mg of phenytoin at bedtime. Any concerns I should have about taking this medication. And how long will it take my level of vitamin D to be where it should be? I'm 54 years of age.

    Below was chosen The Best Answer?? And what does this mean to me???!!!

    Best Answer - Chosen by Voters
    The prescription vitamin D supplements are the wrong type (ergocalciferol vit.D2). As warned by the National Institute of Health -

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17023…

    Luckily you can buy vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) over the counter and the upper limits are extremely high. Current recommendations are for 35iu per pound - a 150# person needs minimum of 5250iu per day & the rda is 400iu. This amount is for minimal needs and does not account for depleted stores. March is when stores are at their lowest.

    Vitamin D3 deficiency is becoming an epidemic. U.S. RDA are much too low. It is possible that upper atmosphere pollution is blocking the needed UVB light from the sun.

    Vitamin D3 is not a vitamin at all but a necessary hormone that effects the immune system & nearly every aspect of health. Having low Vitamin D levels greatly increases risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, MS & being deficient can create or greatly exacerbate health problems.

    I have Fibromyalgia -Vitamin D3 supplementation has cleared the constant muscle pain. I did high levels for 3 weeks & was pain free. I knocked the dose down to 2000iu's a day & a week later the pain was back. After restarting high levels, the pain is managed again after 3 days.

    I personally did 35,000iu per day for 2 months trying to refill my stores. It is highly recommended that you have your vit.D levels tested but my research shows toxicity only at outrageous, long term levels.

    I originally did B12 injections daily for a couple of years & then I tried guaifenesin (Dr.St.Amand's protocol) for 10 years but discovered vit.D3 supplementation only recently & that has worked better than anything else!

    I also highly recommend a low carb way of eating to allow the body to regenerate rather than degenerate.

    Dr. Joe Prendergast, an endocrinologist /diabetologist has managed over 1500 diabetic patients and, in the last decade, not one of his patients has had a stroke or heart attack. Only one has even been hospitalized! His secret—50,000 units of Vitamin D3 daily. Dr. Joe further reports:

    * Reversal of advanced coronary disease
    * Reversal of advanced lung disease, avoiding a lung transplant!
    * Cure of multiple sclerosis
    * Cure of amotrophic lateral sclerosis
    * Regression of rheumatoid arthritis
    * Improvement in allergies
    * Control of many cancers including prostate, breast, colon, brain tumors, leukemia, myeloma, etc
    * Reversal of osteoporosis
    * Prevention of influenza
    * Cure of depression and many other mental disorders
    * Hashimoto’s hyperthyroidism

    In summary, the evidence for safety and remarkable efficacy of Vitamin D3 suggests that virtually ALL adults should probably take 50,000 units of D3 daily. This is certainly true for those with virtually any illness.

    • ANSWER:
      Jim,

      If you've been diagnosed with MS, contact an Official Treatment Multiple Sclerosis Treatment Center. You can call the National MS Society:

      "In the meantime, please contact us at 1-800-344-4867 for current, detailed information on treatment resources in your area."

      http://bit.ly/9uOQnG

      Until you talk to an MS Specialist Neurologist, just forget all of that Vitamin D information you found on the internet. After you ask that MS Neurologist about it, and ask him/her the questions you need answered.

      Good Luck.

  24. QUESTION:
    DIABETES?? HEART FAILURE??? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?
    Well, The first day, which was 2 weeks ago I all of a sudden felt light-headed, and when I stood up I felt dizzy, I drank 2 cups of water, and lied on my bed, and felt better. Me and my mom decided to go to the doctor straight away. The first doctor was male. He checked my blood pressure, and said it was absolutely fine for my age. He said since it is only the first day he isn't so sure about it. I went to the next doctor, she said it might be a short wave.
    I researched, and saw that I mayb have diabetes or CHF (congestive heart failure)
    I straight away started excercising. 20 minutes + a day, and started eat healthy. I lost 5 pounds, though I've had abit of shortness of breath, and sudden chest pain. I am supposed to weigh 48 or less at age 12, but I weigh 66.
    If I lose the rest of my unwanted weight, and continue eating healthy, will I be fine? will all these symptoms go away? or get worse? I don't want to go to the doctor just now, HELP?!
    Also will kids my age who have CHF need a heart transplant? or medicine??! can you cure CHF? or diabetes? type 2?

    • ANSWER:
      Doctor's are trained to take several things into consideration before they make a diagnosis, especially when it is something as serious as congestive heart failure or diabetes. Diabetes is diagnosed on the basis of increased blood glucose levels and although diabetes may be associated with a lot of other conditions, the other conditions don't mean that one is diabetic. CHF doesn't tend to just appear all of a sudden without any warning or history of heart dysfunction. Have you ever had any other health problem that turned out to be an issue with your heart? A lot of diagnoses are given when the doctor takes into consideration your individual medical history, and the medical history of your family. Often different diseases run in families, meaning that certain inherited genes make it more likely that you may develop a certain condition. Please don't worry yourself over these kinds of thoughts. You cannot be afraid that you have a disease on the basis of one or two symptoms that you are experiencing. There are a lot of symptoms that are not specific for a particular disease (for example fatigue is a symptom of many different conditions other than chronic fatigue syndrome. So necessarily you cannot make that diagnosis without other supporting symptoms).Having said that, do not ignore symptoms that you may experience.


Cure For Diabetes Type 2 Surgery

Diabetes is a chronic (lifelong) metabolic disorder that prevents the body to utilize glucose completely or partially. It is characterized by raised glucose concentration in blood. Normally, blood glucose levels are tightly controlled by insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas. Insulin lowers the blood glucose level.

To understand diabetes, it is important to first understand the normal process by which food is broken down and used by the body for energy. Several things happen when food is digested:

* A sugar called glucose enters the bloodstream. Glucose is a source of fuel for the body.

* An organ called the pancreas makes insulin. The role of insulin is to move glucose from the bloodstream into muscle, fat, and liver cells, where it can be used as fuel.

When the blood glucose elevates (for example, after eating food), insulin is released from the pancreas to normalize the glucose level. In patients with diabetes, the absence or insufficient production of insulin causes hyperglycemia. Diabetes is a chronic medical condition, meaning that although it can be controlled, it lasts lifetime.

Types of Diabetes:

* Type 1 diabetes is an auto-immune disease where the body's immune system destroys the insulin producing beta cells in the pancreas. Its onset is usually sudden & diagnosed in childhood. This type of diabetes accounts for 10-15% of all people with the disease. It can occur in any age, although commonly under 40, and is triggered by environmental factors such as viruses, diet or chemicals in people genetically predisposed. People with type 1 diabetes must inject themselves with insulin several times a day and follow a careful diet and exercise plan.

* Type 2 diabetes is far more common than type 1. It makes up 80-85% of diabetic cases & usually non-insulin dependent. It develop slowly & usually occurs in adulthood. Symptoms may not show for many years and, by the time they appear, significant problems may have developed. Many people with type 2 diabetes do not know they have it, although it is a serious condition. The disease is strongly genetic in origin but lifestyle factors such as excess weight, inactivity, high blood pressure and poor diet are major risk factors for its development. People with type 2 diabetes are twice as likely to suffer cardiovascular disease. Type 2 diabetes may be treated by dietary changes, exercise and/or tablets.

* Gestational diabetes mellitus is high blood glucose that develops at any time in 5-10% of pregnant women who do not have diabetes & diagnosed though an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT). Risk factors for GDM include a family history of diabetes, increasing maternal age, obesity and being a member of a community or ethnic group with a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. While the GDM or carbohydrate intolerance usually returns to normal after the birth, the mother has a significant risk of developing permanent diabetes while the baby is more likely to develop obesity and impaired glucose tolerance and/or diabetes later in life. Self-care and dietary changes are essential in treatment.

    Whats the best 'cure' for type 2 diabetes?
    I have type 2 diabetes 42 yr old female with hemachromatosis, mild heart condition and slightly overweight.I want to avoid medication and try to control the diabetes by diet and excercise alone.Has anyone had sucess doing this if so how did you do it? I have some excercise restrictions due to back surgery but willing to try anything and I do walk a lot anyway. Thanks for any help.
    to macc
    I dont believe that actually. I do know of someone who was obese with diabetes type 2 she lost 57kilos and is no longer on tablets.

    • ANSWER:
      My mom has had diabetes for several years. She lost a lot of weight (she had been extremely overweight) and her blood sugar came down to well within normal range. I don't think she's cured. She has to take maintenance pills and monitor her sugar levels. She watches her weight carefully and is vigilant about sores or cuts on her feet and hands.

      While her blood sugar was off kilter, she took cinnamon capsules because we'd read that cinnamon helps stabilize the insulin production and release.

  3. QUESTION:
    Should Ins. companies pay for gastric bypass surgery if lives are at risk and the surgeryis there best hope?
    Gastric Bypass surgery ( roux en Y ) has now been proven through long term studies to cure type 2 diabetes in 95 percent of patients. Reported on MSNBC

    • ANSWER:
      This is still a "hot topic" in insurance. There are many pros about gastric bypass and lap band intervention, which all are readily published and advocated.

      However, insurance carriers are still very doubtful of its ability to be a too quick fix and long-term solution for justifying the cost of the surgery and follow-up care that comes with it as well as the potential of long-term permanent side-effects that can accompany it. Many companies want to see what you, the patient have truly done to make an effort to modify your lifestyle and eating habits prior to any approval. Medicare wants proof of 2 years of attempt of every available diet, nutritional modifications, and even psychological review prior to approval.

      Another point of view of the cons is this....

      It is now being proven that both are not permanent soltuions for permanent weight loss because many recipients of either surgery have had history of regaining weight, becoming alarmingly overweight, and having difficulty in losing it again. So even with the considerable stomach size reduction, one can still manage to become overweight with improper diet and exercise. This would be viewed by insurance companies as a monetary loss as it did little for long-term prevention.

      Unfortunately, even after intervention surgery, it still comes down to self-control, behavior and eating modification, and life style changes involving exercise too.

      NOTE: This question would probably best responded to in surveys & polls or health instead of insurance. Most insurance questions asked are regarding defintion of coverages or how to best use the insurance

      EDIT ADD: Both of these surgeries should be viewed as the possibility of offering a quick fix to helping a person get on the right path for lifestyle modification when traditional methods may not have helped them to begin and to sustain if for the long haul. i.e. a overweight person labor of breathing and exercise stamina may be only 5-15 minutes. The dramatic weight loss resulting from the surgery will help mobility and breathing to help them maintain exercise for 20 minutes or longer as time passes and mobility continues to improve. Again, dietary moderation would always need to be observed. I do advocate the lap band as it is the least permanent types of surgery for those who have a clear understanding that this is not a permanent fix but only a tool to assist them for long term behavior changes.

  4. QUESTION:
    Type 2 - gastro bypass?
    My sister has had type 2 for a few years. It was not in the family, yet she is otherwise a candidate, due to weight, diet and exercise. She controled her diabetes with diet and medication. She has never had out of control blood sugars, and her diabetes is managed with minimal effort/medication.

    Six months ago, she had a gastric bypass. Suddenly her medication was negatively affecting her blood sugars. As she reduced her medication, her BS stabalized. With her doctor's monitoring, she has been med-free for four months.

    So I have two questions:
    1.) I'm a parent to a type 1 child, and thought I was pretty fluent on diabetes. I haven't heard of this before and it made my jaw drop. Has anyone heard of a surgery ridding the body of diabetes (other than islet cell transplant or pancreas transplant)? Tell me your story/knowledge on the subject. Is it specific to type 2?
    2.) What does this tell scientists and doctors about a cure? Does it put it more within reach?

    • ANSWER:
      Drs David Cummings and David Flum of the University of Washington wrote an editorial to the Journal of the American Medical Assoc. about the gastric bypass surgery usually cures Type ll in about 80 percent of the patients...also, it can eliminate having to take blood pressure meds. I have Type II and I will be having the GB 2-25-08. It is the Lifestyle change that takes place when you have GB.

  5. QUESTION:
    could this really be the cure?
    on yahoo it told me that a cure for diabetes and very over weight people is the gastric bypass surgery,why then did they tell us with diabetes about,it's for people with type 1,2 diabetes
    what do you think of this
    it is good or bad
    give me some feedback

    • ANSWER:
      Type 2 is when the body makes not enough insulin, or applies it inappropriately.

      My sister has always been overweight. A couple of years ago she developed type 2. In her case she was making an insufficient amount of insulin to manage her appetite and intake. Six months ago she had a gastric bypass and while it's much too early to call this a cure, she has been med free for 5 months, and was given the green light to put away the BG monitoring kit two months ago.

      It's definitely not a cure. Just a small step. And it would only be successful with certain type 2 criteria.

      Dr. Tanivir - - what do you have to yell for? She only asked a question.

  6. QUESTION:
    What is left for me to say.....?
    I typed up a report on diabetes, it is supposed to be 6 pages dubble spaced, but now i don't know what else to put, all i need is a half a page more. Thank you!

    Diabetes Type 1
    Diabetes is a disease in which blood glucose levels are above normal. People with diabetes have problems using food for energy. After a meal, carbohydrates in food are broken down into a sugar called glucose, which is carried by the blood to cells throughout the body. Cells require insulin, a hormone made in the pancreas, to help use blood glucose for energy. People develop diabetes because the pancreas does not make enough insulin or because the cells in the muscles, liver, and fat do not respond to insulin properly, or both. As a result, the amount of glucose in the blood increases while the cells are starved of energy.
    Prior to 1997, the type of diabetes typically diagnosed in young people was called juvenile diabetes or type 1. Diabetes emerging in adults was called adult-onset diabetes or type 2. Then in 1997, the official names of the types were changed to type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is the second most common chronic disease in children (after asthma). About 13,000 new cases are diagnosed in the U.S. each year. Patients with type 1 diabetes make up about 5 percent of all cases of diabetes. It most commonly appears in girls and boys when they are about 14 years old. Usually, type 1 diabetes is first diagnosed in children, teenagers, or young adults but it can occur at any age. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the beta cells in the pancreas that make insulin. As a result, the pancreas does not make insulin, a hormone which helps use blood sugar (glucose) for energy. The cells become starved of energy and there is an excess of glucose in the blood. People with Type 1 diabetes must have daily injections of insulin to live. Proper diet, exercise and home blood sugar monitoring are essential to manage the disease. Food and exercise must also be balanced because of the risk of hypoglycemia, low blood sugar, and hyperglycemia, high blood sugar. Both are life threatening concerns. When hypoglycemia develops, cells are not getting enough glucose. Confusion, loss of consciousness, comma and death results when the brain is deprived of glucose for too long. Hyperglycemia and prolonged absence of insulin may lead to ketoacidosis, the accumulation of ketones in the blood when the body uses fat for energy instead of glucose. Ketones make the blood acidic and slow down all body functions. Like hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia can also lead to comma and death. The only cure available today for type 1 diabetes is a pancreas transplant, which is rarely done. Because both pancreas transplants and kidney transplants require lifelong use of powerful drugs to suppress immune reactions that can reject the organs, pancreatic transplants are usually done to those with type 1 diabetes who also need a kidney transplant. The side effects of immune- suppressive drugs can be severe and even worse than the disease. One or two people out of every 10 who get the surgery die within a year. Also the new pancreas is rejected by half of the people who get this operation. If the transplant fails, diabetes returns. Recently, experimental treatments with stem cells have shown some promise. For most people, type 1 diabetes is a life-long disease that can be effectively managed with insulin.

    Signs and Symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes
    •Urinates frequently. The kidneys respond to high levels of glucose in the bloodstream by flushing out the extra glucose in urine. A child with diabetes needs to urinate more frequently and in larger volumes.
    •Is abnormally thirsty. Because the child is loosing so much fluid from peeing so much, he or she becomes very thirsty to help avoid becoming dehydrated. A child who has developed diabetes drinks a lot in an attempt to keep the level of body water normal.
    •Loses weight. (or fails to gain weight as he or she grows) in spite of a good appetite. Kids and teens who develop type 1 diabetes may have an increased appetite, but often lose weight. This is because the body breaks down muscle and stored fat in an attempt the provide fuel to the hungry cells.
    •Often feels tired. Because the body can’t use glucose for energy properly.

    But in some cases, other symptoms may be the signal that something is wrong. Sometimes the first sign of diabetes is bedwetting in a child who has been dry at night. The possibility of diabetes should also be suspected if a vaginal yeast infection (also called a Candida infection) occurs in a girl who hasn’t started puberty yet. If these early symptoms of diabetes aren’t recognized and treatment isn’t started, chemicals called ketones can build up in the child’s blood and cause stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, fruity- smelling breath, breathing problems; even loss of consciousness. Sometimes these symptoms are mistaken f

    • ANSWER:
      Watch out on using advice from yahoo answers if truthfulness is graded. While 80% of type 2's are overweight, only 18% of obese people are diabetic.

  8. QUESTION:
    Looking to get some help- physically disabled?
    Hi,

    I am 16 years old and physically disabled. I have a disability called Cerebral Palsy, also known as CP. I have two out of the three types of CP. One is Spastic CP, which causes stiff and difficult movement. The 2nd kind I have is Ataxic CP, which is a disturbed sense of balance and depth perception. The Spastic CP is the most dominate in me. I also have epilepsy which is the condition of taking two or more seizures. Because of the epilepsy, I have headaches almost every day as well as this unexplainable pain in my face when I have headaches. When I tell my neurologist, he looks at me as if I am crazy; sweeping the issue under the rug by saying “Your medicine will take care of it.”

    I live with my two retired elderly grandparents, who are in their mid 60s. I have a younger brother. My Dad is working out of state to provide for us. He and my mother aren’t together, and she does as she pleases.

    I was wondering what if any organizations could possibly help my grandparents get a wheelchair accessible vehicle that has a lift, and space for a wheelchair. (Like one that has a row of seats taken out, or really a single seat) It would ease the stress of getting me places, such as doctor’s appointments, and etc. Currently, they’ve a ’05 Chevy Impala, and each time my chair needs to be put into the car it needs disassembled. My chair is motorized, so it itself ways at least 45 pounds, each tire weighing 50, and the battery weighing 25. My grandfather has heart disease, and diabetes. He has trouble lifting the equipment but he has no choice.

    Also, there’s a pit in my backyard. It’s where a pool used to be when I was younger, but that my parents just let go when they were raising me. If there’s an organization out there that could help get that up and running again, it would be great. There’s no cure for what I have. Surgery is an option, but I’ve had my fair share already in life, and it wears off. I also don’t like being sedated- it scares me. I am able to walk in the water. No fear of falling. Water therapy is amazingly helpful.

    Because my family has no help or support from anyone, and doesn’t know where to begin, the house is often full of stress because I don’t feel well, and my grandmother doesn’t know what to do, but be there for me, telling me everything will be okay.

    My doctor really is no help on any of this.

    Thanks in advance for any answers
    -Isabel

    • ANSWER:
      First your grandparents are not elderly - they are barely even old. People in their 80 and 90s are elderly.

      It sounds you need a new doctor. Even if what your doctor says is true, he should be more understanding.

      Are you on SSI or SSDI or private insurance? How did you the wheelchair you have? They should have helped you with getting an appropriate vehicle or lift. Do you have a case manager?

      What about school? Do you have a social worker at school that is helping out?

      Do you have a local United Cerebral Palsy or Epilepsy Foundation - I would contact them.

      It is rare that a social service agency helps people get vehicles when they are not yet working. The state rehabilitation services often help with that. If you are thinking about getting a job or going to college you could sign up for state rehabilitation services and they might help.

      For the pool - I'd say forget it. Very little chance in this economy of anyone doing anything with that.

  9. QUESTION:
    Should Ins. companies pay for gastric bypass surgery if lives are at risk and the surgeryis there best hope?
    Gastric Bypass surgery ( roux en Y ) has now been proven through long term studies to cure type 2 diabetes in 95 percent of patients. Reported on MSNBC

    • ANSWER:
      I have had gastric bypass surgery and belong to a Yahoo group for support. They are now doing surgeries on people who are not overweight to cure diabetes. The cure rate is so high. What we believe really doesn't matter. Insurance companies are slow to start covering anything that costs them money. Some policies even list GBS as an exclusion.

      Besides, if you haven't researched the procedure, most people think it is a surgery that makes it easy to lose weight. That is so far from the truth. In reality I have to watch every single day to be sure that I get all the nutrients I need. People die of malnutrition by not watching what they eat after this surgery, not that that's very common because we learn how important eating correctly effects our life.

      So the person who answered your question stating that this surgery has not been proven to cure diabetes is incorrect. The hormone in the lower section of your stomach no longer interacts with any food. That's what the cure is about, not about what you eat after surgery.


Cure For Diabetes Type 2 India

Once diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, patients always face the difficulty in knowing what diet is the best for them. The doctors do not tell them in detail about each and everything they can eat or they should avoid, and patients find themselves restricted to only a small number of diet options fearing that eating anything other than the doctor mentioned may be harmful for them. There are definitely some restrictions that a diabetic patient should be well aware of.

First in the list of restricted diets and foods to avoid are all kinds of sugars. It is very important for the patient to make sure that his diet intake does not include any kind of sugar item. Such items may include normal refined sugar, refined brown sugar, sweets, chocolates etc. One should also remain careful while choosing fruits for his diet. Though, fruits are strongly recommended but there are some fruits that contain dangerously high amounts of natural sugar. Still, such fruits can be eaten but within a limit and in accordance with the doctor's guidelines.


Cure For Diabetes Type 2 2011

There is a way to cure type 2 diabetes that is working for many people. The new diet is reversing type 2 diabetes as you eat what you like. Science syudies showed a change was needed because the old typical sugar free diets have been a failure to cure type 2 diabetes. Diabetes has grown into a worldwide problem and there was no real reverse diabetes diet that was working. A diabetic has been stuck with much of the same old information for the past 30 years and the illness has grown worst.

The person looking to reverse or cure type 2 diabetes must understand that they are in a battle against time. As the diabetic waits the body slowly dies. The diabetic has a poison blood glucose that invades the bloodstream and this should alarm you. This is how the diabetic experiences pain and then death. Waiting to reverse or cure type 2 diabetes is the biggest mistake the diabetic makes. Each years many diabetic will have to have their legs removed as the poison glucose in the bloodstream destroys the body. As the diabetic waits the kidneys and lungs breakdown. The diabetic having their legs cut off is due to waiting.
