I was told by my chiropractor that insulin resistance is progressive. She says there is no way to stop the progression into diabetes because the body adjusts to everything you do to control it and it just keeps getting worse. This has really scared me.

The idea that type 2 diabetes is progressive and there is nothing you can do to stop it is either incorrect or people I work with are all miracle patients. I was close to death when I was diagnosed with A1C 20.9 and lots of stuff going wrong. When I left the hospital after 2 weeks I had a backpack full of meds.

My mother’s toes were purple from neuropathy and headed toward amputation. I now have an A1C of 5.0 and taking no meds for anything. My mother’s toes are pink and healthy. If what you were told were true neither of these would have happened. There are lots of other people telling me similar stories.

Instead of trying to tell you what we did I will give you a link to my site and ebook. The site is 1600+ pages and the ebook is 168 pages. I am not a medical professional, just another type 2 diabetic. My site and book is about what has worked for me. Some of what I have to say is contradictory to what the doctors and the ADA is saying but then what they were telling me to do was not working. The site is www.Diabetic-Diet-Secrets.com and the ebook is available by clicking the link in the upper right corner

Even if the doctor is correct in the analasys, there are things you can do to compensate and overcome the insulin issues. So many of us here are finding ways to improve our BG levels with diet, exercise, meds and Lots and LOTS of positive attitude. Just as Butterfly_8 said, don't give in to the thought of "what's the point". I am living a better, and healthier lifestyle now than I was before I found I hade Type 2. If that is your wake up call to get serious about taking care of yourself, that is good, but don't let it scare you into non-action. So many folks here can offer you great encouragement and guidance. All you have to do is ask, and we will be here to help you out.

My advice is to not believe everything you hear,especially if it is negative.
I would ask a diabetes specialist and not a chiropractic Dr.for advice on diabetes. Read and research for yourself. Do not take one persons word for anything. . All of us here are trying to adjust to our illness and find ways to improve ourselves. we do not want to give in to fear tactics.Don't you either.
