I have known many diabetics in my life, some very severe, I always wondered how the powers that be could allow such a situation to transpire. It is like a daily game of Russian roulette for those inflicted with it. With that said I have recently received my blood work and discovered how out of wack my triglyceride levels are which led me to realize through other avenues that I suffer from candida. I have dove head first into this dark world of bad biotics and weakened blood cells and came out the other side with this theory, Diabetes and candida are on some level related and possibly co-depended on each other. There are just to many common denominators between the two, Pancreas,liver, stress, antibiotics, illness, fructose, insulin and the list goes on and on, My theory is that Diabetes is caused by a candida infection some where in the organ system, possibly the pancreas or even the liver, I am still studying the symbiotic relationship of these organs with the digestive system and the information they share back and forth. I can not offer you advice or give it because I am not a medically trained Doctor but if I was you i would look into things like Agrisept-L , virgin coconut oil, olive oil with lemon juice as well as bone broth and milk thistle. I wish you the best my friend and hope you and others find relief from this condition some day soon.
