"Since stretch marks are a form of scar tissue I would say avoid them if you can. It doesn't take much to interfere with insulin absorption."

Christine -
You say youre looking for "understanding what I'm going through." Pls visit my webesite, and read my short book/long essay. also, leave a post on the blog to support others with the same "problems" we have had to deal with, and read about some of the UNBELIEVEABLE CRAP I have had to deal with! I am a 30 vet of this insidious condition, so dont let my story scare you! Also, the essay is not for the easily offended! Thanks, see you there! Steve D.
