Please Continue To Remind Others That....

Insulin is not a cure for diabetes; it is a treatment.
It enables the diabetic to burn sufficient carbohydrates, so that proteins and fats may be added to the diet in sufficient quantities to provide energy for the economic burdens of life.
Sir Frederick Banting
'Diabetes and Insulin', Nobel Lecture, 15 September 1925.

Just wanted to say


Because of you

I made an appointment with an endocrinologist.

I have lost 15 pounds, exercise daily and have got off my blood pressure medication.

My Endo was awesome. Great bedside manner. I had one as a teenager b/c of PCOS and HATED it.

Now I am taking responsiblity and going to live healthy.

Thanks Kelly for speaking up to all of us with our head up our ass pretending we have to just accept doom.
