Type 1 Diabetes

Sunday, December 4, 2005 - 11:17 pm

For the most part, the subjects of my podcasts cater to my personal interests. This episode is part of my research into Type 1 Diabetes (formerly known as Juvenile Diabetes), something a close relative was diagnosed with recently.

Thanks for the information. I don’t have type 1 and I hope I don’t get type 2!

I just read on another blog about a vaccine that has been invented for type 1 diabetes. I also read about doctors that think they found genes that might cause type 2 diabetes. Hopefully all these advances will bring along positive results soon.

Your diabetes information proves to be useful to me. I’m currently searching the web to find solutions to cure diabetes. One of my good friends has just recently being diagnosed positive with diabetes type 2.

Thanks once again for your kind information.

thanks for the podcast. There is lots of info out there about diabetes. I personally have learned to live with diabetes through using natural means like laughter and a positive attitude. I picked up some great ideas from a book my mom gave me at It really helped me a lot.

Thank you for the info. I find that exercise and weight control are key to controlling my diabetes. I am still relatively young so I have a long way to go!

I have a friend that had diabetes and after having surgery to have a pancreas and kidney transplant she no longer had diabetes. The pancreas controls the insulin hormone and so I assume this organ transplant is why she no longer has diabetes. Pretty amazing! I had never heard that this can cure diabetes but this is verified as I know this lady personally.

Ever increasing incidence of Diabetes has become the number one health issue for all developing and developed countries. Diabetes is the main culprit in the initiation of multi organ disorders and thereby the reduction of the normal life span of a individual.

“I also read about doctors that think they found genes that might cause type 2 diabetes. ”

Yes, let’s blame this on our genes. We wouldn’t want to take any responsibility for ourselves. Think about it for a moment. Did your great great grand parents have diabetes? Chances are pretty good they didn’t. In fact until the last 70 years diabetes was very rare. What does that tell you? It tells you that it’s not your genes — it’s the food you’re eating.

What the researchers are trying to tell you or I should say “brain wash” you into thinking and accepting is this, “We will genetically engineer you to eat the poison the food companies are adding to your food. This way you can survive.”

Sounds like a better solution than simply removing the poisons from the food, doesn’t it?

If diabetes, cancer and every other disease they’re blaming on your genes was really a factor then over the last ten thousand years or so we would had an epidemic of these problems prior to the last 70 years.

A very serious illness. I was working with a colleague when he collapsed at work. He was totally unaware he had diabetes until a blood test confirmed it. Unlike women, guys don’t like to talk about illness or visit their doctors. Maybe we are just too plain scared, but now with these kits you can buy over the counter to test yourself maybe more people will realize its worth checking out.

My dad has type 2 diabetes. He manages diabetes through Diet and Exercise and alo by taking food supplements like Alpha Lipoic acid which helps in preventing nerve damage. He also takes Chromium which helps in the regulation of blood sugar.

Diabetes may finally have a cure through extensive stem cell research. But for now, diabetes can only be managed by drugs or food supplements that controls blood sugar. I take Alpha Lipoic acid and Chromium because they are helpful in regulating blood sugar.

Most people get Diabetes because of the lack of exercise and overeating. We should be more aware of our lazy lifestyles and start exercising regulary to avoid Type II Diabetes.

Diabetes can be prevented by just having a physically active lifestyle. Just exercise everyday and avoid eating too much. Avoid sweets and high carb foods too.

With current advances in stem cell research, it won’t be long before we can find a permanent cure for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

My daughter has Type 1 … I am very pleased with the interview distinguishing between type 1 and type 2 but I must stress though the only part which I winced about when the guy interviewing said its not a life threatening condition ! … yes it is if their blood levels go too low they can slip into a coma … if they fall too low in their sleep and are not hypo aware they may not wake up… so please do not say it is NOT a life threatening disease… if this is not managed correctly and the blood levels can not be stabilised then it is very very dangerous !
