I feel like one of the judges on Dancing with the Stars. I know people may yell at me, but I’m going to say it anyway. Since diabetes interferes with the production of, or effective use of insulin, which allows us to store energy, could diabetes be a defense mechanism? If so, it does more harm than good, but that sometimes happens when the body reacts to something. Maybe the body is telling us that we are not getting the exercise our bodies need. Maybe its a reaction to processed grains or something else we eat. Maybe we’re not using our stored fat, so it’s trying not to store more of it. Maybe its a combination of things, or different things can trigger it. Obviously, we’re not all overweight or couch potatoes, or have a family history of diabetes, and I’m not suggesting it is our fault. I’m just wondering about what really starts our bodies down this path.
