    I feel tired from small amounts of activity, physical and mental. I don't know how I'm going to get well enough to hold a job one day. This condition like the cherry on top of the cursed sundae that is my list of health issues. I pick up my paleo book from the post office tomorrow. Hopefully...

    Things were going good for two weeks, despite an increase in anxiety and the worsening of my schizophrenia. Yesterday and today, I seem to be hit by the blues. Not severe depression, just very awful sadness. My blood sugar doesn't show much change (nothing I didn't see last week or the week...

    During the summer of this year, two tornadoes hit near my area (they destroyed a whole bunch of houses). Many people were without power for a few days, including several relatives of mine. I was wondering, since granola bars are very sugary, what type of food should I store in case of an emergency?

    Hello! Desperately need your views/comments on this one. Have been looking for an alternative for my diabetic wound treatment for quite a while now.

    Hi, all. I'm having a difficulty with my foot ulcer I want it to be completely healed. It has been bothering me for quite a long time now.

    So I just stumbled upon some research that I wanted to share. And also to say, I think anecdotally it has possibly worked for me! So I was Vit D deficient for over a decade. I was at a 6 which is critical but no doctor said it was a big deal. WRONG. I had crippling anxiety and panic attacks...

    Hi everyone, I wanted to get some insight from the panel that have had a hysterectomy and being diabetic. I recently found out I have a fibroid tumor in my fibroid.

    Hello, a few months ago I posted an inquiry asking if people thought I had diabetes. Everyone was very nice and answered what they thought I should do. I ended up getting an HbA1C test and it came out normal according to my doctor. Now I didn't ask for my number because I was so happy. Fast...

    Hello, everyone. I was diagnosed as diabetic in 2009 following a severe asthma attack which required an aggressive steroid (solumedrol) regiment. In the days following the attack, I had an insulin drip 24/7 to help combat the elevated blood sugar. I was in the hospital for a total of 15 days...

    Chris Kresser wrote a nice post on his blog on using the Paleo diet for Diabetes, if you can forgive his use of "preventing or reversing type 2" verbiage. Personally, I like the Paleo approach combined with low carb, because, as he points out, it addresses whole food nutrition, sleep...
