Most interesting...

One injection stops diabetes in its tracks - Salk Institute - News Release

And seems to only work for Type 2 and for those who can still produce some amount of insulin. Well, in MICE for now.

Well worth keeping an eye on, at any rate.

My prediction is that it won't work for all Type 2s, though it would be great if it does. If, however, my prediction turns out to be accurate, hopefully such anomalies will result in long-overdue research into the causes of the various "Type 2s."

My daughter posted this on facebook for me to read. It was quite interesting and I'd be very interested to see how it progresses. It would be wonderful if this comes to fruition relatively soon. I'd try it. At this point, I'd try anything. I'm sick of fighting with my bg's, and I'm on a pump!

I would still like to keep away from glucose, even if this works.

Yes. If this treatment proves effective (and safe), I see it as relief from the labor-intensive side of diabetes, not as an excuse to go back to The Bad Old Ways.

Shalynne, I think too many will do just that and go back to living as they did before diabetes. Yes, I hope the medicine is safe, but I dread how people will use it.

I don't think I'd ever go back to eating "the old way" ever. I'm so used to eating low carb, my system doesn't like when I eat something that isn't low carb. I enjoy my low carb pizza crust more than regular crust, and I like my riced cauliflower more than regular rice.

My body likes low carb, but my blood sugar still gives me a hard time.

I didn't know that a high fat diet induced diabetes in mice.

And the instant they start telling me that type 2 diabetes 'can be brought on by excess weight and inactivity,' is when I stop reading and delete.
