Ok, I'm usually not one to talk about conspiracies but something I heard today really disturbed me. A long time friend of mine has an uncle who has lead a diabetes research team since 1974. He is now fully convinced there is a conspiracy to stop any cure for diabetes. I do wonder if they found a cure how much money companies would lose and how many jobs would be gone. Not really sure why im posting this but maybe someone has some promising news.

Hope, to treat the complications.
This treatment has changed my life. I want to help spread the word.
check out global-infusions.com
Until there is a cure. . . . Check out this treatment. It is keeping me off dialysis!!!!!!!!!!!
I can personally vouch for the improvement and/or reversal of most
of the compllications they list.

Physicians around the country have safely administered more than 40,000 PIVIT treatments over the past two decades. Patients have experienced more stable blood sugar levels and improved blood pressure levels. According to the research, retinopathy has been arrested or reversed in many cases, as well as heat, cold and touch sensations returned in some neuropathy cases. Patients also reported kidney improvements as well as healing of wounds. An overall sense of well-being, increased energy levels and improved quality of life were all reported by patients undergoing PIVIT treatments.

PULSATILE IV INSULIN THERAPY Available in Tn and CA and soon everywhere

I've heard of PIVIT. Glad it's helping you! Is it still outpatient treatment?
Treatment is in a docotrs office or clinic. Your first vist many be 5 to 6 hours. After that you will spend 4 to 4 and one half hours there,once a week, relaxing, watching TV, bring a book, or your laptop.
Clinics will start anywhere there is demand for this treatment. Some insurances cover it. Medicare did cover it, until a little over a year ago.
The process does involve starting an IV. But then we are used to needles.
I do know one thing many nephrologist are heavily invented in dialysis centers. I understand they get $$ for referring a patient.
Before you go into dialysis---Check into PULSATILE IV INSULIN THERAPY---gobal-infusions.com
You spend 4 hours a week in therapy. Yes it does involve an IV. You stay on the insulin regimen and diet you are on now.
It has changed my life!! and kept me out of dialysis; I have been on treatment 6 months.
why is it this sounds like an advertisment!!!
It is an advertisement. It the only way I know how to get the word out on a treatment with such promise, and PIVIT is here now!
So happy for your success. I wondered how often & long treatments are since it's IV outpatient
I just Googled it and here is the link to their FAQ page. According to this, it is 6 hours every week. If you stop, the complications return. It says gastroparesis can be reversed with 2 days in-hospital treatment. It is probably not affordable for most people - $25k per year.

Kelly, too bad we can't get a two-for-one deal on reversing gastroparesis. From what I've read insurance doesn't cover it because it's considered experimental. I'd better start saving my pennies.
I agree Gerri, or one of us hit the lottery! The website said Medicare doesn't cover it so I figured a lot didn't.
I may have to start buying lottery tickets. If I win, all are invited for treatments on me! Am trying to imagine life without gastroparesis.
