I am extremely excited about a new development in my life!
I have had Type II Diabetes for 23 years and progressed to Insulin after 3 years of being diagnosed. I have suffered many of the effects of the disease…diabetic retinopathy (eye) and kidney disease being the worst.
I had a gastric bypass in late 2008 hoping to rid myself of this disease or at least halt the progression of its ravages. I lost a lot of weight, but not all of the excess and I still had diabetes(even though the insulin amount was reduced).
My doctor recently gave me Vitamin D2 , a prescription dose - 50, 000 units 2xwk. I have been on it for about 1 month now. I had heard at a Humana class that over 90% of the population is deficient in this vitamin, so I asked for it. We get vitamin D from the sun (which I have to avoid because of one of my medicines) and from eating fish (which I do not) and some from the additives to milk, etc. But that is not enough. Actually, at the Humana seminar, they said you could stand buck naked on the equator all day long and not get enough Vitamin D!!!
I take it on Tuesdays and Fridays. This past week, I saw the most dramatic results…I thought I had been CURED! I was having lower lows that I have ever had and had to eat more carbs…(which is not good for weight loss) I know it has had an effect on me and believe it will lead to a cure.
Ask your doctor about it. He may not know about it though. It's definitely worth a try. You must monitor your blood sugars frequently and be under a doctors care. After 3 months he will do a blood test to check your levels and may decrease you to once a week as a maintenance dose..
I just had to share. Does anyone else have any information on this????
