Just curious... are there any Type II Diabetics among us, or am I the only one?Krispy
Hello KrispyIt seems we have more in common than a great taste in bible versions.. I was diagnosed 2 years ago. In my case it was the result of terrible eating habits over the last ¼ century. Making better food choices, and one small pill morning and night have it under control. I am slowly shortening my belt also. Many blessings Greg ;-)
Hey Greg...I inherited it. I've always been a bit of a health nut... watching what I eat, weight lifting, coaching football, wrestling & basketball... and got Type II anyway. bummer.The reason I asked is because there is a new drug out now called Byetta. It is an injection of a protein based medicine... the protein was discovered in the saliva of a poisonious lizard in New Mexico.Anyway, it is specifically for Type II Diabetics.What it does is when you inject is an hour before you eat it slows down the amount of sugar released from your liver, speeds up the insulin your pancreas produces, and causes your stomache to slow down it's digestion of your food. The result is it drastically reduces your blood glucose levels after you eat. I would be normal all day, but after I ate I would be around 230. Now after I eat I'm usually around 115.If you experience highs after you eat, you should discuss this drug with your doctor.Here is the drugs website: http://www.byetta.com/index.jspIt's worked wonders for me, bro... if your a candidate for it, I should tell you that one of the side effects is that you feel fuller on less food... thus weight loss is very common among those who use it.Krispy
Hi Krispy,Sorry to hear this, bro. Will keep you in prayer.
the protein was discovered in the saliva of a poisonious lizard in New Mexico.
Now, this is truly remarkable!!! So, what happens if people can't catch enough of these lizards?
