I recently read an article on www.EverydayHealth.com which has been an absolute eye-opener about a connection between Type 2 and menopause. The article dealt with women whose bodies are still producing insulin but whose bodies are not utilizing that insulin because of the Type 2 and talked about hormone replacement therapy. As an experiment, I started using a 100% natural product called Estroven, available at many stores (it's usually used for hot flashes). Even though I have been taking oral diabetes medication for years, my BG has never been in control until now. I've been between 80 and 150 and before I was consistently over 250 and sometimes as high as 400. I'm feeling great and don't need naps in the afternoon just to get through the day. I've also lost 10 pounds so far. This news is very motivating for me.
