"I strongly agree with Brian. These drugs will not cure you for sure. What a crazy idea to take cancer meds on your own just because of some studies with mice!"

"I'm not keen on taking any cancer drugs. They can be deadly to more than just disease. There's other research as well, not sure if they'll ever find the cure, which was "just around in the corner" when I was diagnosed in…"

"Don't do this. This is really, really, really a bad idea. The study was about mice. You are not a mouse. And all kinds of different things have been found to "cure" diabetes in mice, but they have yet to find anything that works on…"

Hi


Hello everyone, esp all the peeps from KC (too bad there's no football here...)

Divorced, with 2 kids, 18 year-old daughter and 17 year-old son. I've been T1 since February, 1970 and things have changed alot. My first meter was about the size of a brick and weighed about that much too...

Human insulins... I took a beef/pork mixture in years the before that came in '83 (?) and still cannot donate blood because I might have mad-cow disease from the beef/pork insulin.

It was finally proven that the long term benefits of tight control of blood sugars vastly outweighed the risks of hypoglycemia

Pumping is good!

Depression and diabetes are linked...

While diabetes is a part of my life, it doesn't control it, some folks wear it on their sleeve, start living life please, the rest of us want a chance to whine some too...

I'm sarcastic, cynical, don't take myself too seriously (neither do my kids, hmmmm), and I'll always tell you the truth, you may not like it, but hey, you asked
