    Hi,

    Cure? Well probably not today, but not to far away.

    There is a lot of research going on to discover the hormones and things that control the operation of the pancreas, liver, and kidneys.

    The Salk Institute has given a news release talking about certain hormones that control diabetes. Deficiencies in certain things can cause problems in mice, it is a matter of time to discover how it all works, and what can be done to give a better treatment.

    Once the weak hormones are discovered, then perhaps they can be made artificially, much like insulin is added to a type 1 diabetic, the hormones that control the pancreas operation might be simulated and reproduce, causing the pancreas to work in a more normal way.

    Until that time, I suggest that you read a few books, and learn more about diabetes. Then make certain dinner requests that are in the book. You will be helping your own health, and assisting the diabetic in discovering great tasting foods that are low on the glycemic index, and still tasty.

    Like sweet potatoes. They are lower on the glycemic index than russet or red potatoes, and are fine if microwaved or baked, and then peal and slice, sprinkle with some cinnamon, and eat. No need for brown sugar or butter.

    Split pea soup. Try it – it only takes about 15 minutes of prep time.

    1 pound of dried split peas
    1/2 pound of lentils
    1 onion chopped up
    6 cups of water. Cook in crock pot for about 4-6 hours.

    Add some sliced carrots in the last hour if you like them. I like to chop up 3-5 carrots, slice into a size that will fit easy into a soup spoon. This might require cutting the carrots down the middle before slicing into 1/4" thick slices.

    These are the 4 books that I have.

    Dr. Barnard’s Program For Reversing Diabetes. He talks about how people in Asia might not have diabetes in the family tree – until they move to North America, and start to eat a western diet.

    Reducing the amount of meat in the diet, and reducing animal fats in the diet can help with diabetes patients that Dr. Barnard treated. This can lead to lower average blood sugars, and that can lead to lower dosage of medications.

    Dr. Young writes: The PH Miracle for Diabetes. He writes about how insulin can be more efficient and effective once your body is less acidic, and more alkaline. This has led some of this patients to lose weight, control their sugar levels better, and become less dependent on medication to keep the sugar levels stable.

    Along with these books, a book that lists foods and their Glycemic Index. That is how quickly a food changes to blood sugars once inside the body. Such as serving strawberries for desert to a diabetic. This is much safer than eating ice cream or candy.

    Another book is the Acid Alkaline Food Guide.

    It lists things like cheese and meats as changing to acidic foods when you eat them, while most vegetables are more in the alkaline section.

    Yes it is possible to live a long life with diabetes.

    It is also possible to ignore your diet, and end up in the hospital with a blood sugar reading of over 900. Like my aunt, who lost circulation to her feet, and lost a couple of toes. Had kidney failure, and later was taking diabetes. That usually only lasts about 3-4 years. Once on dialysis, you need to stay on it the rest of your life – usually only a few years.

    I know that you are concerned about your relatives. I think that you will do your best to provide them a few good diet tips. If they listen? Well they say you can only lead the horse to water – what they do with that advice is up to them.

    If diabetes is in the family, you might need to start taking that advice in Dr. Barnard’s book for your own family and kids. But lets hope that like identical twins, you are not predisposed to diabetes just because someone in your family has had it.

    Best of luck to you.
