20th June marked 15 years since I was hospitalized and diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. On the one hand, it seems like yesterday. On the other hand, it seems long ago, as if it had happened to another person. It seems as if the young person I was (23 years old) when I made my debut was quite different from the person that I am today. And indeed, I’m quite different. I want to take this opportunity to do a little summary of the past 15 years and give you an update about my diabetes, what I’m doing, and the results I’m getting. From young, insecure man to parent and author I have several theories as to what caused my diabetes. Although I’m not one hundred percent sure which one was the trigger, I have an intuition that makes me believe quite securely in one or two of these hypotheses […]

We are again at this time of year, when everyone seems a bit more aware about diabetes and there are plenty good intentions. The truth is that many people are honestly and sincerely devoting their time and motivation to make life more bearable for those with diabetes. I take my hat off to those people. To whom I don’t take my hat off is to the companies or organizations that are apparently promoting (with words and advertising campaigns) the cure of diabetes, but in reality make it impossible for a cure to go public. That strikes me as the worst hypocrisy. But anyway, I didn’t want to talk about that, but what awaits me in this next “diabetic year”. It’s funny that just today, the World Diabetes Day I got in touch with a German doctor who claims to have patented a treatment to cure type 1 diabetes. I have […]

Recently I read a news that I thought had to share with you all, especially the ones with diabetes type 1. Scientists in Israel are testing a new drug that can avoid the need for insulin injections. “It has been developed to block the process which causes the body’s immune system to attack the pancreas.” Since it stops the attacks to the pancreas, if your pancreas is still producing its own insulin, you could have a good chance to live without insulin shots. Therefore, this drugs seems to be aimed to newly diagnosed type 1 diabetics who still produce insulin. Trials are taking place at centres in Europe, North America, South Africa and Israel and they expect it to be available in 3 years. Let’s see if this is not another treatment to give us hope but is never available to the public. And if it doesn’t have side effects. […]

Here I am again, this time with some statistics of the treatment to cure diabetes by Dr. Schnitzer, taken from his website. In fact, the first physician to systematically use this method as standard therapy in patients both with type I and type II diabetes, as well as its subsequent consequences, was Dr. Helmut Weiss. In the “Medical Week of Baden-Baden (Medical Week Baden-Baden), an annual medical conference, reported the results obtained during the first months in 119 patients with diabetes. The following table provides an impressive perspective (clic image to enlarge): I don’t know about you, but these are the type of statistics that I would like to see in a doctor’s office. But as I said, I decided to take responsibility for my health and my life. So I follow the maxim “He who heals is right”. And for me, these results shown above are enough to convince […]

This works! Yesterday I announced that today, if all went well, I would only put 1 unit of insulin. Well, today I come with the results. I’m proud to say that 1 unit insulin was enough for every meal! My blood sugar ranged between 60-94. And don’t think that I didn’t eat carbs. My breakfast has been: 80 grs. whole oats, 1/2 apple, 1 pineapple slice, 4 strawberries, walnuts and hazelnuts, all mixed in a muesli. My lunch: a large mixed salad with 80 grams lentil sprouts and melon and almonds as dessert. Dinner: Another large salad with 80 grams whole oats and almonds for dessert. If you sum up the carbohydrates contained in these meals and the tiny amount of insulin I needed, you can tell how well my body is reacting to the diet to cure my diabetes. I look forward to writing such good news in future […]

Today I would like to start saying that the current medicine way to treat diabetes is probably based on false assumptions (like, “diabetes is incurable”). Yesterday I found an example of this, reading an article in a journal on the Internet about genomics. Apparently, for the first time a study has found the complete genetic sequence of a person (in this case the researcher’s own project Craig Venter) One of the conclusions of the study is that “the [genetic] variation from one human to another is seven times higher than previous estimates, showing that at the genetic level we are much more unique individuals [than we thought].” What do I mean by this? Well, if in fact each one of us is unique and different at the biological level, why does the health system insist so much to treat everyone in the same way? If you are diagnosed with diabetes, […]

Today I want to recommend an interesting video about the possibilities for curing diabetes. It is actually a trailer for a documentary film that will be launched in spring 2008. It’s similar to “Super Size Me”, a critique to junk food that is reigning in some countries and the impact this has on our health. In this video, some Americans suffering from insulin-dependent type II diabetes who were in use to eat regularly McDonalds, were taken for 30 days to a kind of farm in the desert, accompanied by doctors, and ate only organic food, fresh, raw, changing their lifestyle. The results are impressive! I can’t wait to watch this documentary and I hope it reaches many people!
