Some forms of Type 2 Diabetes can often be cured with radical diet change and weight loss, but not with drugs.. Type 1 can not be cured but if it comes up in childhood sometimes the children "grow out of it" sometimes they don't :(

Sorry but we don't share the mod's schedules, this is to make it harder for people to harass individual mods. I hope you understand. It's fine if you figure it out yourself (though schedules can be fluctuating at times anyway) but we don't "advertise" them :)

Congratulations to her! Hi, Shaylen. Do you remember that kid who tried to tell Amber she needs God before she goes? I think maybe you and Amber should say something nice to him before too long. He may not have said the right things but he wanted to help.

Hey you!:) yes, I remember. And honestly, I've never spoken to the guy. Her mom just told me about it and how upsetting that was for her and amber. I don't know the guy, just know of him. Amber can't really talk to anyone-people text her mom to ask to visit, or just show up. It's too much for amber to text. She also just lays in bed, and when she walks, needs support from someone else. Her main focus is fighting to stay alive-I doubt her or her mom are worried about that anymore.

Does Amber know him? Think of how he'll feel later. All he's done is insult Amber. But he has a good heart. I think someone should say something nice to him soon.

Yea, amber knows him. He texted her that. I think it was almost a year ago... (Think after we graduated) Amber may or may not even remember that, the mitochondria affects her memory. (not like altemizers or anything like that and my goodness can't spell... She might remember: it did have quit and impact) but I don't think amber should have to focus on that, and she can't really focus on that. And I don't know that anyone even addressed the behavior, I think Sharon (the mother) just told her not to respond.

Unless you're there, it's really hard to comprehend how bad off amber is, because it's so hard to explain... I googled it to understand better, maybe I can give the links (her mom explains it so confusing! I'm not a doctor, so these medical terms baffle me) but Amber isn't worrying about those things now.

Thanks you Marcus. Hope I didn't sound mean in anyway-I know you were only trying to be kind/thoughtful. I'm just so sleepy! Think I'm going to zonk out in a few.

Hope all is well with you.

When folks have had bariatruc surgery they no longer need insulin; high levels if exercise too have shown to eliminate daily insulin shots.
Good luck!

My understanding is that Diabetes cannot be cured, but it can be controlled (I'm refering to type 2 diabetes. As long as I control my food closely, take my meds appropriately, then my levels will be somewhere near a high-normal, and less damage will be done. Definitely not an easy thing. However, I don't think it's cured, and if I once again start eating sweets, etc., then the damage will be starting again. Mostly it's because the cells will not receive the insulin very well, either because the pancreas is on it's last leg or whatever. So you eat sugar, high fat, and the glucose soars, and to offset that your body tries to produce insulin, but the cells won't take it, so your body produces more and more, then suddenly it's enough to go into the cells, but by then it's too MUCH insulin and it damages your vessels. The object is to keep a balance and not let your sugar levels go too high or too low.

Some Scientists discovered a type of Coffee that can reduce the possibilities of having the risk of Diabetes Type 2 by 25%. There is chances you can get rid of Diabetes type 2 according to the information of this Ask Member 2 spaces above me : Deana Wynn who has a point on the cure of Type 2 Diabetes. However, I have no idea where can you get this coffee the scientists have recently discovered. ( -___-)
