Diabetes for Doc Stoll & anyone else who knows

Hi Dr. Stoll,
My husband was just diagnosed with diabetes. He'll be 45 yrs old in 2 months. Two years ago his blood sugar was high, and he lost weight and went on a protein power type diet. His next glucose tolerance test was in the normal range. This years test just came up diabetic. I think he got confident and cheated more often this last year on his diet. Do you feel in all cases the doctor is right when he says that once you become diabetic it can't be reversed? I did read some of the posts about your circumstances, and would appreciate your input.

Can you please recommend any supplements you feel can help, and dosages. Also, Do you feel that any of the herbs being marketed for blood sugar are helpful? How much exercise is necessary to decrease insulin resistance? Can a person with this problem live without the long term complications coming on?

I sure would appreciate your help, and if anyone out there has success with this, or info that would help, I would be grateful for the input. Thanks

Hi, Andrea -
My son has had Type I (jeuvenile) diabetes since he was a child and has taken daily insulin injections since then.
The Type II diabetes which your husband has cannot be cured but can be controlled by diet alone, usually. Sometimes it is necessary to take medication in the form of pills if it cannot be controlled by diet and exercise. Your husband cannot and should not try to "cheat"; especially he should not eat large amounts of carbohydrates at one sitting, which is very hard on the pancreas. He must be very careful to maintain a healthy weight for his size. Because it is such a silent disease, people don't realize what harm they are doing to themselves, which will show up later on, by not regulating their diet very closely when diabetes is diagnosed. This, of course, is just from my experience. Dr. Stoll will answer soon. Hope I've helped some. Raisa

Hi, Andrea.

I agree with your assessment about your husband's overconfidence. Unfortunately, every recurrance greatly reduces the chances that he can reverse it again doing exactly what he did in the beginning. Even if he cannot cure it he will greatly help it by doing what he did in the beginning--FOREVER MORE.

His doc is right in that he would have to be very careful to keep it away and that he had his best (and perhaps his last) chance the first time.

STILL that is his best chance even now.

Just walking 20 minutes a day or an hour 3 times a week is enough exercise to make the majority of difference.

Pharmacological doses of antioxidents (like 2000 milligrams of esterified vitamin C twice a day and 400 units of vitamin E a day) is the best (presently) known preventive of diabetic complications.

Let us know how he does.

Thanks so much for your help! I appreciate your good advice. Dr. Stoll - I remember you mentioned that you use large doses of essential oils - do you feel that would help him as well? If so, what kind and how much?

Also, do things like alpha-lipoic acid, chromium picolinate, and the extracts from those exotic fruits they claim help with blood sugar, actually help? Should he be on those things long term as well? Thanks again, Andrea

Thanks so much for your help! Only thing is what helped him before is a low carb diet, and this supplement has a very high effective carbohydrate amount. Any thoughts?

You must be talking about the rice bran supplement, right? My thoughts about that are that the carbs in a bran are much different from quickly metabolized carbs. Carbs are very different. For example, cellulose is also a carb but one that is hardly metabolizable by humans. Hence, it doesn't effect blood sugar level. I'd recommend that you contact someone competent in that company to get more explanation. If you do, please share with us.

Hi, Andrea.

I only took large doses of the essential fatty acids until I knew the extent of their benefits in ME. Over the years I have found that 2000 milligrams, twice a day, is MY maintenance dose.

Any and all of the other things you mentioned may help. However, again, one has to use the individual laboratory of the person's bodymind to learn what helps and what does not.

Let us know what you learn.

Walt
