    Thanks for posting this LCG. It is starting to hit other news outlets. I pray that studies eventually show that it is true for humans as well.

    You're quite welcome Abbey. Like I said, I have a 5 year old nephew who is an insulin dependent diabetic. He was diagnosed at 18 months. I've been there with my sister for many nights when his sugar was so low, in the 20s, where we had to actually pour things down his throat when he was barely conscious, just to keep him from going into a diabetic coma.... ive seen him when his sugar was in the 300s when you would swear he was drunk. Diabetes, especially in young children, takes a hard toll on the body. Its even harder on children... it breaks my heart to hear him say "Mommy, why did God give me diabetes?".

    I, like you, also pray that we get the same result with tests in humans.

    As a mom, that is so hard to imagine seeing my child go through.

    And as we continue to dumb down our schools, and pat kids on the back for mediocre efforts, I expect that we will see less and less of this kind of breakthrough thinking.

    Hello Friends...........

    Diabetes cannot be cured completely, but can be effectively controlled. People with diabetes can lead a healthy life if, their blood glucose level is under control. The decrease in life span of a diabetic is restored to normal by maintaining good blood glucose control (90-130 mg/dl at fasting and with less than 180 mg/dl 2hrs after meals).

    Thanks

    Study: Gastric Bypass Procedure Reverses Type 2 Diabetes
    March 31, 2014 ~ A new study at the Cleveland Clinic shows that bariatric surgery reverses Type 2 diabetes 90 percent of the time, meaning patients have normal blood sugar levels, sometimes immediately afterwards, and they no longer have to take insulin or other medications to control the illness.

    There is no cure for Diabetes. You can only control it.
