Today was a rough day. Last night, I started getting abdominal pain. I thought it was just gas, but it never passed. I woke up this morning, and the area where my kidneys are in my lower back hurt a lot. I still went to work. At work, my vision became a bit blurry. This has happened before. When it happens, I know what is next. My center field of vision practically disappears. I often get what I call "tracers". It's kind of a thin, pixelated snake-like image on the outside of the center circle where I can't see anything. It's not blackness, like there is something over my eye, it's just a small non-existent field. Then, the inevitable happens, I get this terrible migraine headache. Today, it really took its toll. I was weakened by it all. I barely made it through the day. It's almost 9:00 pm, and I still have a nagging noticeable pain in the kidney area.

I'm 39 years old. Both of my parents have diabetes. My sister has diabetes. I haven't been diagnosed with it yet, my testing levels have always been fine...but today, I think I may have discovered I have it. On Sunday at the football game, I drank a lot of coke - it was only one stadium cup - way more soda than I usually drink. On monday, I was pretty tired and didn't think much of it, but I drank two mountain dew's. For dinner, I had a great big bowl of pasta with alfredo sauce followed by homemade peanut butter cookies. I think today's pain may have been caused by all that. What do you think?

I would go to your Doctor right away, I had a friend that had some symtom's like this and he found out that he had a couple of blocked blood veins. After a simple xray and then a small surgery he was fine and has no more problems..
Anytime you have problems with your vision and/or kidneys or any other part of your body that hurts that is a major sign you should not dismiss and should talk to your Doctor right away! It could be minor or the begining of something a little bigger.
The thing is, you know how you are suppose to feel when you are normal, when you arenot feeling right then that is your body telling you something...I hope you the best.

Hi there:
I have had type one diabetes for the last 45 years. I remember feeling the way you do. I was 10 years old at the time. I am now 56 and doing okay. My grandparents were from Berlin and so you may be special to me in all sorts of ways. Keep your chin up. I will write to you if you want.

I have been diabetic since I was 2 and I am now 35 years old. I have never gone regularly to any Dr. because they are good for nothing but fixing broken bones, and it should be illegal for 90% of them to be practicing and the fact that they call it medical practice lol it's not funny and should give the public no trust in their abilities what so ever. I of course am type 1, and I would also like some diabetic friends. Who knows maybe we could all rise up and let the world know, that they have not made great medical advances in diabeties, a mobile IV or insulin pump is not a medical leap and the cost of that calculator is a crime! I know I am a realist but if I could find some friends, I now live in Anchorage, Alaska. You can reach me at [email protected]

Eat no processed food, it is very easy to make a fresh raw uncooked pasta sauce, and the cookies NO! lol if you are full on raw food you will not have space for cookies. I know it's not easy, but I hope this helps, try to learn as many meals to prepare as you can and always make up your own.

Hi. I have been diabetic for 6 years. My doctors use terms like uncontrollable, and brittle. I have had ketoacidosis 2 times. i am alergic to some of the insulins that they have tried me on. I need two kinds the one that seems to help me the most is called Levimer.I work in a factory and this is gonna sound crazy but in the summer it is really hot and i sweat alot and my sugar stays so low i have to drink regular pop all day. But in the winter when it is cold, i can just smell food and my sugar stays high.Rarely am I under 300, much of the time over 500.I am underweight and always dehydrated. And sometimes i am just too weak to wiggle. I have recently started taking iron tablets, they are helping with my energy level.I am a challenge for my doctors, but they really try hard.


Please write to me I would like to help you, my name is Alex I am type 1 you can reach me at [email protected] wbs, Alex

Greetings Varun and many others,

Have you ever read about someone who had both Type 1 and Type 2? I had both (and a few other types that most people do not know about) and almost died four years ago. In India, there is the 5000-year plus science of Ayurveda. Ayurveda knows of more than 20 different types of diabetes. But the history of medical science is just close to 200 years. Medical science only came up with Type 1 and 2! Do you know there is something that sets me apart from everyone else? I have a background in working with good logic and reasoning. You can already discern this in the first few sentences of what I have written. I have demonstrated the contrast between western medical science and Ayurveda. So, when the medical system told me that diabetes is incurable, I already knew that that was a lie.

“No physician can ever say that any disease is incurable. To say so blasphemes God, blasphemes Nature, and depreciates the great architect of Creation. The disease does not exist, regardless of how terrible it may be, for which God has not provided the corresponding cure.”--Paracelsus.

To get well, I never accepted the medical lies that contravene Nature. Once you figure out the lie and work with 100% truth-based information, then and only then, can you completely heal. This is what I did. Two doctors fired me. To completely heal, this is just one price I paid. But, it is a lot cheaper than being lied to and then continuing to suffer for the rest of one’s life is it not? Now, a few of you will ask me how did I do this? If I try to explain here, I will be ridiculed. This has happened to me many times. I have been banned on other groups. In the spring of 2008, when I first began exposing the truth on a few diabetic forums, people who had difficulty discerning the difference between truth and deception drowned out my message. Therefore, my message was lost. But many will say that I am making all of this up... that I am a snake oil salesman... that I am here to make money...and other foul language, angry words plus other techniques were used and, once again will be used to poison your mind away from the truth in my message. Beware!! Do not feel afraid. Be courageous and brave. Discern the truth in my message. Stay focused on the message. Develop your ability to use good logic and reasoning! In order to completely heal, you must have a strong foundation. Good logic and reasoning are the cornerstones of this foundation.
