Dear sir/madam i can understand your concern
in type 1 diabetes you should clearly know about a concept called glycemic index.
Glycemic index means the density of carbohydrate present in that food.
so low glycemic index fruits can be taken 100 gms per day
Apples, Blackberries, Blueberries, Figs, Grapefruit, Grapes, Honeydew melon, Kiwi Orange, Papaya, Peaches, Pears ,Pineapple,, Plums, Raspberries, Strawberries Watermelon.
oral insulin can come to market in couple of years.
stem cell therapy is also showing promising results in phase 1 trials

How does Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo effect blood viscosity? I m insulin resistant, and I keep track of my blood sugar levels periodically after meals and fasting just to make sure everything is copacetic. Last night, when I pricked my finger, I noticed my blood was very thin. I couldn t get a well formed drop. It was runny like water. I would like to know how the birth control could contribute to this effect. It s odd to me because birth control pills are associated with clotting.... Appreciate your insight!

Hi, I was taking Cetapin XR 500 for about 4 years. In November, 2013, I was found to have low PP sugar levels (66) alongwith excessive thirst and urination and so was advised to discontinue the medicine. I underwent Osmolality (serum and Urine) tests also among some other tests. Ever since I stopped the medicine, my weight has been constantly increasing. It was already at 77-78 kg in November, 2013 and presently at 88 kg. GTT and Insulin (Fasting and 1 hr.) are within referral range, but Insulin PP was slight more than the upper range (5). What should I do? Jaya
