Can shock (not electrical) to the body bring on diabetes.

Prior to being Pre diagnosed with DB, I had no health problems except for being overweight. There is no one in my family that had or has this condition. After breaking my wrist I was getting pre operation tests and they found my blood sugar to be 250. If stress and weight are part of this condition then I think your body going in shock can bring it on.

All I can tell you JSJB is what my 2nd wife told me. She said that when she developed type 2 it was from the stress of her Congestive Heart Failure. So my answer would tend to be yes also.

come to think of it, I have a younger brother who years ago had cancer in his unmentionable parts, and he developed Diabetes not long after that. He has had diabetes many more years than I have.

yep he is as ornery as ever!

This was the brother who sat on my head when I was laying on the floor reading the newspaper. It was a linoleum floor and that caused a broken front tooth. Just the beginning of my tooth problems.

I wonder! We both live in las vegas and the last time I have seen him was about 3 or 4 yrs ago. I guess I need to try to make contact again. He's supposed to be planning to go back to Ohio for a family reunion in July. I am planning to go too. It would be a shame to live in the same town yet only see each other at a family reunion in OH.

Contact him James. Keep the family alive. I've been in Vegas 5 times. 4 motorcycle and 1 car trip. Some interesting sights. Stayed in Henderson and played the slots in the laundramat didn't win.

Thanks JS!

One thing that Vegas (in fact almost all of the state of NV) is built on is the lure of winning money which one did not earn. Most folks lose at the gambling tables or machines but those who do win are trumpeted as someone who wins. I guess about 98% of gamblers (the preferred term in the industry is "gamers" — another distortion) do not win. If everyone gambled as much as I do (that is not at all), Vegas would dry up and blow away. But so many people have gotten in so much financial trouble with gambling I take that into consideration when I am tempted by the lure of something for nothing.

I personally do not have a problem with recreatonal gamblers. In fact one of my nephews makes his living working in a casino. But my money has come too hard for me to basicly "give" the money up for the lure of making something for nothing.

Yes it is an interesting place.

The only winners are the casinos. I have a casino, Parx, just 2 miles down the road and if I didn't drive by it I wouldn't know it was there. No intrest in gambling. My wife and I use to go to Harrah's in AC. Gamble away 100 dollars if we won we would eat out. So we hate home alot :). If we did another trip out west, Vegas would be a deffinate stop but have to get grandaughter through collage. If it isn't one thing it is another but I enjoy it. Have a nice day James, going to work on the veggies and cut the grass today. Part of my exercise.

They say we are born with certain genes that are dormant until something happens. I'm hoping this is it for me. Doctors visit was great, continuing to work on my condition.

that's really good to hear.

There are others on this board who say that diabetes is TOTALLY due to our lifestyle. I don't buy it and I have debated them on this issue. They still haven't been convinced of my point and I can only agree that certain lifestyle choices do trigger the genetics to cause diabetes.

Thank you James and sorry to hear about your wifes condition.

unfortunately she passed away in July 2010. She had so many "medical challenges" (as she lagughingly called them) and some of them potentially fatal,
I am blessed she lived as long as she did.

Now I am working on wife #3 "SQ" who had a bad burn a month ago requiring a skin graft. You can find the discussion on it and most recent updates here ~

Sorry to hear about #3. Hope every thing is well with her now. Prayers are with her.
