Prefer the Orthomolecular Medicine approach and always look for solutions with supplements. It reversed neuropathy for me over 10 years ago and recently my low red blood cells have returned to what they had been before the 2002 disaster. So as I repeatedly find that supplements work, no one will shake my conviction.

Janina I am the same guy. I just changed my picture a few years ago. But yes, I did start dinner and a movie and I did become part of the care team. After I graduated this past year I decided to restart the dinner and a movie group, and I took a little more active role here on TUD.
Hi Janine! Thank You for adding me as your friend! I am very interested in finding out what supplements you used to reverse your anemia. I feel so tired and sluggish with the anemia and need help! It is so nice to have a fellow diabetic be a friend. :)
You may have noticed TuD hanging around the site. It's his 6th birthday this month, and his big international family of people with diabetes is growing. Our 6th birthday fundraising campaign is on! Every dollar you donate allows TuDiabetes to reach 6 people touched by diabetes, giving them the opportunity to not be alone!
Please consider making a donation, as well as asking your friends and family to give what they can. TuD's birthday party will keep getting more guests as we raise more donations (see top of the home page). Let's help keep our family thriving and growing! Please share this message. Thanks!
I don't take supplements ... I prefer to go directly to the root excuse the pun. Here in Asia we get plenty of organically grown greens, herbs, sprouts and roots that form the primary ingredients in most of the supplements. The beef here is mostly Australian grass fed beef (as well as the dairy). As for what started it, it seems to be PTSD. I was in combat immediately before the onset of symptoms.
Hi Janina, I missed some of your comments - thought I could accept your friendship, then answer but your comment was gone. So, greens - I try to but it's hard in the winter, need to do better (I'm hoping to have a winter growing box this fall). As for supplements - I take Nopal juice from cacti which has helped my joints amazingly well. I also take cinnamon, krill oil, and chromium ploynicotinate.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANINA! Best Wishes NOW....and for the rest of the year! Have a GREAT "ME" DAY :)

We have a great time getting to know each other, sharing info and lots of laughs :) It's on right now!
Hey Janina! Thanks for the add! I haven't had any luck with supplements so far. Have tried gymnema, gaba,tulsi, turmeric, capsaicin, and more I cannot think of right now. My goal is to take as much as I can, usually. Thinking a shock to the body could jump start the pancreas. Right now I am on a heavy dose of vitamin D. Will still a few cloves of garlic a few times a week. That seems to have an immediate effect on blood sugars, or at least how I digest meals.
I have taken Cr in the past, but not for very long. I heard that vanadium and black tea was used to cure mice so thinking that will be my next go if the current therapy doesn't yield any fruit.
