Day 3 Finding a Cure for Diabetes
Type 2 Diabetes finding my Cure
This note was sent to me from a man a have looked up all my life. Now we are in touch again because on FaceBook…The new media for Baby Boomers.
She started on Transfer Factor GluCoach in June. On August 26th we stopped her Insulin shots completely. They were stepped down through the summer and I monitored her sugars closely. Over the next couple of years she continued to drop weight. Jim, she was a lifelong member of Weight Watchers and only had one real successful loss back in the early 70’s. When she came to live with us she was 5’3″ and weighed 208lbs. By early 2007 she was down to 126lbs without any conscious dieting. She was off of her Blood Pressure and Cholesteral and Arthritis Drugs. The only drug she took was 1 Starlix for diabetes daily. That is usually taken at least 3 times a day to control blood sugar.
Anyway some more food for thought. Sue and I would love to visit with you if you are interested in a less severe lifestyle change… or for whatever! I am glad to see you pursuing your dream again Jim! Good for you! You know what they say about Character Actors? They just become more Characteristic? Well something like that anyway….
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Millions of Americans have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and many more are unaware they are at high risk. Some groups have a higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes than others. Type 2 diabetes is more common in African Americans, Latinos,Native Americans, and Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, as well as the aged population.
In type 2 diabetes, either the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin. Insulin is necessary for the body to be able to use glucose for energy. When you eat food, the body breaks down all of the sugars and starches into glucose, which is the basic fuel for the cells in the body. Insulin takes the sugar from the blood into the cells. When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, it can lead to diabetes complications.

Hi Jim! You are so cool! It has been about 20 years since you lived across the street and walked over in your bare feet all the time, chased by your kids! No more Pizza Place…had some fun.
