What REALLY Lies Behind Diabetes?

I liked this article in the New York Times. I liked it because people are beginning to open their eyes to the complexity of diabetes.


Bernard just sent me this additional article, which seems to be closely related to the article mentioned above. I thought it best to edit my blog entry so you would all the info at the same place! Thank you Bernard for letting me know about this! So much more research is needed, but maybe people are beginning to wake up to the complexity of diabetes, and we are not even talking about a cure!

Careful logging and decreasing the number of variables by maintaining constant food, exercise and insulin levels have clearly shown me that other elements are causing many of my high and low blood sugar values. We don't have to blame ourselves for mismangaement, at least not all of the time!

Want to read a DELIGHTFUL book? A book that will make you chuckle? Check out Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann. I have added it to the books under my profile book list.

I have gotten use to the new layout at Barnes and Noble - and it is not so bad! It has led me to other new books, not that I need to buy more kids books..... Children's books are often marvelous. Check out books by Mo Willems such as The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog and Don't let the Pigeon Drive the Bus. My excuse for buying these was that I can give them to some grandchild, when I have read them myself a million times first! And Anthony Browne is still writing children's books. I bought his books 30 years ago when Eric and Ellen were little.... so I was simply was FORCED to add to our collection of his books. I love the drawings and I love the text. Check out Gorilla by Anthony Browne. I haven't read it yet or seen it, but Voices in the Park, by the same author, is very tempting.... And A Perfect Day for It by Jan Fearnley was just to cute to resist....... This is why I have to have numerous bookshelves both in Sweden and in Belgium. I cannot resist good books.

Now I am reading First Words: A Childhood in Fascist Italy by Rosetta Loy......
