Time to raise this thread again.......just want to mention my recent experience with red wine, which I love, and have been using 1 glass per day, almost.
Well, I recently ran out, and was too busy to shop, and noticed immediately that abstinence has brought my daily fasting glucose readings down to an excellent level on a regular basis, and that I also sense that my weight control may be better as well. Pity, but it's a sacrifice I am more than willing to make, even though red wine is good for me. I'll keep it as an occasional celebratory drink I think.

Hi Jenny, I have just started drinking organic red wine as it is a diamond for me (i don't like the taste, much prefer a pineapple juice etc) and it makes me very relaxed so i have it just before bed and i sleep well but wonder if i should be having it if it makes me tired? I do love the thought of it thinning my blood and protecting me from heart attack and diabetes as it runs in the family on both sides.

Serenity,
if heart problems and diabetes run in your family, but you have not been diagnosed as such,the best preventative would be to follow your swami, keep your weight in the normal range, exercise, be happy, drink your wine in moderation if you enjoy it (but not if you don't), there are plenty of super drinks for us that don't have to involve wine if you really don't like it.
It is only because I have been fully diagnosed as diabetic that I have to watch my glucose levels, and hence the comments about red wine.

Just to encourage newly diagnosed diabetics, I had the first spectacle check in three years this morning and found that not only did I not need new specs. at all, but that in some ways my retina and macular condition had improved over that period according to the photographs that he took and showed me. It can only be down to my obsessive adherence to the dadamo w.o.l.

thank you dear Possum, I was within the 10 k exclusion zone, but actually although it was a serious fire as you obviously saw on the news, I could not actually see the column of smoke from my place. Fortunately today they have announced that there was no toxic fallout. It must have been awful for the people who had to bunk in community halls for the weekend.The air here is so pure (apart from politics) that people take affront to local incidents like this. Life in many parts of the world is a whole lot worse than this all the time in terms of air quality. Blessings.

Please don't worry, that will make you ill.....I admit that I was most surprised at the outcome of my tests today, but have taken heart, and intend to go on improving in many areas.

Some eye conditions are more treatable than some would like to believe...

So glad you found the thread Monti...hope it gives you confidence...I can't believe my good fortune in having found Dadamo at this late stage of life (ie 10 years ago), as it has given me tools to deal with all the health challenges of late middle age. I also care for toddlers for 12 hours a week, so know the exhaustion that brings! But worth it.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

I'm still overwhelmed but revamping our family meal plan. Kind of exciting!

without BTD I think I would be  sorry puppet on a medicine string..

I postponed the onset for years, and even now I am making steady progress.. but not by lying down.. I try to find answers, I read some stuff and test it..

I recently saw that  just maybe fixing the gut might reverse diabetes.. the cause being in the gut not the pancreas.. the pancreas is the victim..

BTD is th best way to fix the insides.. it takes time.. and even there supplemtns are hard to take as one has to take to many .. becomes expencive, easier to take a drug...

but the results in drigs are only part the answer, the food we need to neurish is most importnat.

for me finding a homeopathic substance in HCG was interesting.. the numbers just dropped from off the chart to marvelous..   But it is not theonly answer.. I am searching for more..

right now its cinnamon and apple that seemed to work on my BRAIN not to need to look for food all day.. a nice change for me.. then again the apple is not good for me being O .. but its worth the experiment for a month and then I will take the test to see if it is worth doing..

in my reading there is a apple supplement some place, that might become my next test..

I am also doing Trehalose Complex to see if it will do good things.. ..I have less of a need for sugar now - a - day.. but the Trehalosa would be a good enough sugar for sprinkling on all foods or in drinks..  look for th threads with on * in the front, they are from Dr D.. always educational..!!


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Goldie having cravings in some ways is good. Ignoring the cravings and teaching your body to use what it already has instead of going way to far and then lacking insulin to control it, is a problem.

Do the cravings just totally stay if you eat some jerky, maybe celery with almond butter on it too? Is sugar and carbs the only way to curb it? I would think after ignoring the cravings steadily for awhile they would go away since your body rather has what it needs to be healthy, with all the good food you eat. There are certainly some age factors involved, so that response of the body may not be as quick or easy to achieve.

I guess the only really unfortunate thing is the fact that you are older now so exercising like you want to win competitions (like an O should) is not so easy.

Goldie, would you like to update us on your exercise program these days? Also note that vegetable glycerine liquid is usually an acceptable sweetener for use by us.
Possibly  like you, I find it a constant challenge, daily, to deal with weight issues. But since being very compliant on food and exercise my blood sugar levels, both the simple prick test, and the complex HbA13 are perfectly under control.

hi guys, ive been on the btd for a few months now, i could not get my blood sugars under control even with 3  meds a day, i am now down to one half pill twice a day, my goal is to be off meds entirely. a couple of days ago i went through a drivethrough and ordered a diet lemonade, an occasional indulgence that hasnt bothered me, when i got home an hour later my blood sugar was over 400,they had to have given me the real sugar lemonade, even though i ask three times to be sure. i  got really freaked out took an extra pill for my sugar and worked out. by that night my blood sugar ws in the 50s, but the last two days my sugar has been  between 130 and 160s which s much higher than usual. im really afraid that this incident has messed up my system. im being very strict in my diet im just hoping that keeping up what im doing will eventually get  blood sugar back down to normal.

If I feel the need to be sociable over a glass of something, I try to find mineral or soda water, plain. Served in a wine glass it is almost as good as plonk.
