IMHO you're right to challenge and even reject Dr Pusher. I was sent multiple death-threat letters from a Dr who wanted me on Metfomin - and I'm thankful I never went down that road.
BTW, notice I'm saying DON'T LISTEN TO YOUR DR - it appears he's keeping you sick while making money on you. That's not helpful.
My best recommendation is to keep doing the things you've already been doing while reading up on things that work for people. Check my profile for a story similar to your where I've been reversed T2 for over 3 years. YOU CAN DO IT!
On your new reading quest (hope you go for that), Death To Diabetes seems the leading book IMHO. Bernsteins was good in its day but is more T1 oriented. The other 4 I read were garbage - re-enforcing Dr Pushers.View Thread
Yea, I've read that symptom but never had that blessing. Like phototaker said, easier to test directly than speculating that one. For me loosing weight helped lock in a reversal but required huge personal motivation.
If you know anyone with diabetes you could ask them to test your BG. And if suck with the challenge - or even if not - there are dietary changes that can make a big difference to most any chronic health condidtion.View Thread
Thanks for the definitions. Regarding your comment, "Diabetes can progress but if managed correctly, it may not." Right, but....
I go further. I say I've reversed it.
In my case reversal was achievable because I was drinking and eating about 4x what any human should. So rather than a disease the kills 100% -- i also see it as a SYMPTOM of bad behaviors (in at least some cases).
Like if booze were 2K calories/day and the rest was junk-food, then no wonder a person would develop T2, and once they STOP ABUSING THEMSELVES they CAN heal/reverse the condition PERMANENTLY. I also met young guy who had been through "teen challenge" and said he had T2 till he quit drinking (but never did anything for it or about it other than cutting the booze). He said after cutting his booze T2 was gone. To him it was matter of fact like common sense - that surprised me.
As far as I know I do seem to be the most persistent at saying its 100% REVERSIBLE against continuous opposition. I also didn't take the drugs the Dr said were needed to stay alive - in multiple "death threat letters". So that means I'm a bit controversial saying that too, sure. Like I'm saying don't do what your Dr says he might kill you via drugs for the drug money... ouch - and if you're a doc there are tough calls on that level (good/bad exist - though the industry/system limits the goodness available imho).
And yea, I feel a bit like a broken record repeating that truth that seems to be rejected by the big-pharma, drs, and sooo many others (of course whith all that $ for the pills). Considering the big-pharma $ at stake I do consider it risking my life to deliver those truths. What would jesus do? I think and hope that's what I'm doing. Would modify if I thought I was wrong.View Thread
Not only that. Those "occasional person"s would benefit too. Rather than getting mod'ed or dumped they'd still have their voice on the forum without the irritated haters lobbying to get them dumped.View Thread
Nice that you get that and thanks for telling us that. I understand what you want isn't (quite) censorship. As an example, if a person is T2 severe they'd have very little interest in the experience of T2 mild, so a kill file would help get to interesting posts faster.
Also, what is it you're referring to on Facebook? Is it the subscribed to user where you select "all updates, most, or only important"?View Thread
EXPLETIVE YEA there's something WRONG with censorship. Especially when it gets personal - eliminating someone's voice over other people not liking them. Doing it quietly isn't any better either - its a failure when a mod cuts a CONTRIBUTOR.View Thread
IS that ME? IDK, but I do get the impression I irritate a % of the blog populations to the extent that kill-files get discussed. And worse, its my perseption that the kill files are discussed only because I'm successful at talking down my adversaries.
So consider this me recognizing that some, perhapse many don't like me or my posts. Its not my intent to antagonize that set of people either, while I do BELIEVE in myslef as a CONTRIBUTOR.
Hope that helps... and if anyone has "issues" with me - tell me directly because without that I'm just clueless. Thanks.View Thread
