Happy Christmas! I still follow the listserve even though I don't post much any more. It sounds like you had a fun Christmas. I have had a difficult year. I was having lots of stomach pain and weakness and they finally discovered…"
I found the same thing. My weight was stalled for months and then I increased my fat intake a bit and it started to drop again. I didn't even need to go as far as the Atkin's fat fast, I just began eating salad with dressing and…"
"112 and 106 after 14 minutes of walking on the treadmill. With one added note, I had a late lunch ( I was less than an hour post meal) so my BG should have been going up. Very cool, thanks. I have slipped on my exercise, and I think this is the…"
"I got some good news last week too. I went to the eye doctor and my vision has actually improved. He believes that it is because of my tight BG control, and that I am reversing some of the damage that was caused by high BG before I was diagnosed.

Where in MN are you from? I grew up in Mpls, taught in Faribault before moving west in 1979. Just got back from a lovely Amtrak trip to visit family there.
Thanks for the comment Pat! I'm not sure it's the American diet that is doing the killing though. I'm South African as is my recently diagnosed cousin, my grandfather and his brothers were Irish, and then there are the Canadian cousins too! I don't even eat hamburgers! I loved French fries, but well, they're French, right? LOL. :)

Premarital screening for sickle cell disease and thalassemia is mandatory to get marriage certificate,but the funny thing it would not change the mind of couple if tested positive.Not even after councelling.
I have many families with more than two siblings with diabetes,and one family with all girls (6) are diabetics.HLA was identical,the parents are double first cousins( in our are we can marry our first cousins,that is why we have many autosomal recessive disease).
