Diabetes is usually referred to as a lifelong, chronic disease, one that affects more than 20 million Americans. But now, in a new book titled "The End of Diabetes", it claims that most diabetics can get off medication and become 100 percent healthy in just a few easy steps.
Has anyone read this yet?

+Mike Baker  No. I am neither.  In fact it is my investment in a pharm company which caught my interest in diabetic drugs.  I want to share the excitement I have after knowing how that newly launched drug can improve quality life of diabete patients.

Find out more about Afrezza, a prandial insulin (ultra-rapid acting inhaled insulin) being launched in the US.  I believe this is a good option for diabetes to look at.  I wish this product was available in Canada so that my parent may have a better quality of life.

I just found this link which tells us more about how Afrezza works for a guy who started taking this drug not long ago and what questions were raised by others.

Investigating any potential link between insulin analogues like Lantus and unregulated cell division (i.e. cancer development). Details in the blog:
This is a guest blog by Bas ter Braak, currently a PhD candidate at the Leiden Academic Center for Drug Research, and co-author on an article published in Breast Cancer Research. Here he discusses his research on insulin glargine and tumor growth.

Hi Kathleen, this is an excellent article on GP. Thanks!! I have autonomic neuropathy, and GP is one of the potential side effects. So far I do not have GP, but it could happen in my future.

When you have #diabetes, risks are higher to get #dental problems because high sugar levels also affect the mouth and gums. Blood is flowing all over the body including the mouth. Therefore, infection might also happen if the blood is carrying high doses of sugar up to the gums. In addition, it can lead to tooth loss.
Dental health is as important as keeping our skin fair and glowing. It is something that adds confidence and self-esteem when interacting with other people.

Technology is increasingly changing our lives. It seems like every day, a new technological advance is revealed that impacts humanity. Virtual reality masks like Oculus, Samsung Gear VR and Google Cardboard, for example, are changing the way we look at the world.

Type 2 Diabetes
Sleep apnea is very common among people with type 2 diabetes – up to 80% of diabetics have some obstructive sleep apnea. Obesity is a common risk factor for both disorders. Although studies haven’t shown a clear link between sleep apnea alone and type 2 diabetes, sleep deprivation can cause insulin resistance, a precursor to diabetes.
