Diabetes, The Twisted Road

Two new studies just released on diabetes should serve as a wake up call to the powers that be; but of course, that won't happen.

The National Changing Diabetes Program (NCDP) study was released today at a briefing of the Congressional Diabetes Caucus. The study concluded that:

  • One out of every eight U.S. federal health care dollars is spent treating people with diabetes. (Not bad for a disease that was considered a rarity 30 years ago.)
  • It costs $80 billion dollars more to provide medical care for people with diabetes than without.

And that was based on 2005 data. As we know, the incidence of diabetes is increasing yearly and the costs along with it – all over the world.

The study's recommended solution? We need a National Diabetes Coordinator. They might as well have called for another study. At least they didn't call for a Diabetes Czar!

The second study, published online in the Annals of Internal Medicine, found that despite all the great advances in medicine we've made, and all the miracles we see doctors perform on dramatic TV shows, female diabetics are dying at higher rates than they were three decades ago. Men lower by 43%; women higher by 41%.

So what does it all mean?

  • No healthcare program in the world can cover the every spiraling cost of keeping people well if they insist on making themselves sick. Type 2 diabetes is 90% a self-inflicted disease – the result of bad diet and lifestyle choices. We're talking $80 billion and soaring in unnecessary health dollars because people made bad choices. And that's just diabetes…and just in the US.
  • Men may be living longer and women dying sooner, but overall the cost of care goes up for people with self-inflicted diseases. As I mentioned, we haven't talked about heart disease or cancer, or deaths from prescription medication or physician error – none of which would occur if people didn't have to go to their doctors for a self-inflicted illness.
  • Diabetes is not a one trick pony. So far, at least, it doesn't respond to a single magic bullet drug. Because of its echoing nature, diabetes needs to be addressed on several fronts at once if you want to not just control it, but get rid of it. The medical community has no answer to this fundamental problem. The alternative health community does.

    Hi, I have type 2 diabetes for 15yrs. My latest A1C was 7.3% and the most
    time was on above 7%. Recently I got some symptoms of diabetic nerve pain, and the neuroloigst told that I have peripheral neuropathy. He ask
    me to controll blood sugar seriously. My question is do I need control the
    A1c under 6.5% per each test? I took the medicine over 15yrs, do I have to
    take your product for help? If my A1c goind down after your herbs do I still
    take them in the future? (How long I can stop them?) Thanks.

    Jon, I am a diabetic of 56 years standing so have a vast knowledge of this cursed complaint. My daughter a regular Diabetic Dietitian says I am the best Diabetic she has seen that has been taking Insulin for as long as I have. Now some advice for newly diagnosed Diabetics especially young children. BEWARE of the Insulin the doctors call Human Insulin. My advice is to avoid it like the plague. Try these Alternative treatments first and if you still need Insulin ask for BOVINE (Beef) Insulin. Of course you will not be able to get it unless you import it yourself. I cannot go into details in this short space but if you Jon would like to come back to me I can give you a couple of good contacts. The stories they can tell will amaze you and disgust you what the Medical Authorities are up to with insulin. The drug stories pale into insignificance compared to Human Insulin. Cheers, Walter, zwrb@clear.net.nz

    Regarding my e-mail no 4 dated November 29th 2008. I read these emails and most of them are complaining about irregular sugar levels. This is exactly what happened to me when the medics took me off Bovine Insulin and put me onto Human Insulins. Holy hell let loose with me becoming so depressed very close to suicide. Muscle and joint pains etc I had them. Fluctuating sugars from 2.0 up to 28.0 over a day. Immediately starting back on Bovine Insulin my sugars improved so much the aches and pains subsided and best of all I regained the will to live again. I even take a lot less insulin than I ever did on Human Insulin. I realise that Insulin is not the answer but Bovine Insulin is certainly the best by far if you do need it. Banting and Best found that in the 1920s when they discovered it after using all types of animal insulins on their dogs even dog insulin was not as good. Contact me and I will be able to give you two websites that will give you the whole story of insulin. I don’t have to lie this is my personal experience and there is nothing in it but your better welfare. These pharmaceutical companies wrecked my life completely but through research and a lot of hard work I am a lot better than I have ever been. You can improve your situation.
    Walter.

    Walter, could you please email me the websites you mentioned in your email on Dr. Barrons website. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes 2 years ago @ the age of 48. I have read very little about insulin. Most articles are for type 2 diabetics. Thank you.

    Hi Walter

    Just wondering where you obtained Bovine Insulin. I to have been on Human Insulin for years now and it has wrecked havoc on my being able to control my bloodsugars. I was told by my Doctor that Bovine Insulin was not available here in the US. However i did find companies in Canada that i could obtain it from, but my Doctor said that our FDA made it very hard on Doctors here in the US to write a prescription to obtain pharmaceuticals from another country. Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    John
