Just a few words..

I have not been posting alot of new stuff lately,
I just again got out of the hospital, this time it
was my heart. My left side of my heart is thicker then
the right and my inferior vena cava is not working
right either. It is all associated with my diabetes.
So between stress tests,echo cardio grams,blood work,
injections,and tring to live life i am exhausted.
Last week the dr told me I have what is called

L.A.D.A Diabetes Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults
or AKA. Type 1.5 diabetes.

Type 1.5 is one of several names now applied to those who are diagnosed with diabetes as adults, but who do not immediately require insulin for treatment, are often not overweight, and have little or no resistance to insulin. When special lab tests are done, they are found to have antibodies, especially GAD65 antibodies, that attack their beta cells.

Since insulin resistance is minimal or non-existent, medications designed to reduce insulin resistance such as Avandia and Actos are not effective. Other meds that stimulate the pancreas to produce insulin, slow digestion of carbs, or reduce excess glucose production by the liver are often effective in controlling the blood sugar for a few years.

Why am I explaing this to you all, well because its important to get tested and
be aware of whats going on with your body before its to late.

I am also going to do a diabetic kit and a heart kit so be on the look out for those
as well.For know I am tired going to the drs and trin to live a normal life, such as I know it. I hope you all enjoy the new kits and the template and background.

God Bless

You cannot explain diabetes enough. The more it's 'out there' the more people are aware. I'm addin' you to my prayers.
