My personal position on Type II diabetes from a layman and Type II diabetic:
#1 I am always looking for a CURE and taking responsibility for my own dietary habits, trying to stay abreast of the latest findings on BOTH sides of the Aile including the medical field and the nutritional field. Even IF both the medical community and the nutritional community both fail to find a legitimized acceptable cure, there is a GOD in heaven and there are thousands of documented cures and healing all through God's word, the Bible and countless documented cases of miracle's taking place.
#2 In the interim, I continue to improve my diet and exercise habits and take my medication, while working closely with my own doctor and testing frequently and having frequent A1C tests performed.
#3 If all else fails, my lifetime goal is to be FREE of diabetic complications such as stroke, heart attack, neuropathy, amputation, blindness, and other related complications. I have read that eventually (in other words IF you live long enough with Type II diabetes) you have a 4 out of 5 chance to develop one or more of these complications.
In closing this post, I cannot stress strongly enough, that you must play an active part in your own health. You must ask questions, and also do your own research. If you are on prescription drugs or insulin, then do the research. Look up the side effects, both short and long term, and then pay attention if you develop any such side effects. I like to also check the "forums" to get a real world perspective of what people who are taking a particular drug experienced. You must also make your doctor aware of any natural supplements, herbal formulas etc. you are taking and make sure they have a complete list of all your non-diabetic prescriptions also to check for any synergism that may be taking place.
