type 2 diabetics... cause for hope?
A 1 hr procedure done thru a 'scope can reduce blood sugars drastically! I hope the FDA doesn't piddle around for 5 years on this, the studies were compelling, and based on solid previous research!

sign me up!

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

RE: type 2 diabetics... cause for hope?
Thanks, that is an interesting article. It is also a year and a half old, so I wonder how the further tests are progressing.

RE: type 2 diabetics... cause for hope?
near as I can tell, there were very successful trials done in several (not US) countries in 2015 and there will be a larger trial in 2016. It's based on the interesting feature that turned up with gastric surgeries that some types caused an immediate cessation of DMII irrespective of weight loss which was narrowed down to partial removal of the duodenum.

I am not so interested in gastric bypass, even though I am a candidate given weight + dmii. This however, sounds really promising!

RE: type 2 diabetics... cause for hope?
This is just my opinion, but from what I've heard along the diabetic grapevine, the FDA moves very s-l-o-w-l-y. They took forever to approve various improvements on insulin pumps and they still have denied coverage for those of us who can benefit from continuous blood glucose monitors. I wonder if we could find out from the author of the article if there has been any 'updates'?

RE: type 2 diabetics... cause for hope?
I sent them an email - no reply yet. CGM wise - depends on your insurance. I have just learned that my insurance will cover them at 100% for T1 or T2. Going to get me one. Just began Invokana because BS has been horrible, and honestly I feel terrific. Have lost about 8 lbs of water and generally feel less ill and movement is not such a burden.

The Blood sugar is not yet where it needs to be, but I am on the lowest dose of Invokana. I can triple it.

wrt the procedure... I will consider traveling to get that! There are a couple of international destinations where I have resources of one kind or another Smile

I have the Dexcom CGM since 2007 and it is most helpful. You are fortunate if your insurance covers a cgm. Medicare does not cover it at all. So those of us who desire to use one must pay out of pocket for it. Fortunately for me, one Dexcom sensor usually lasts 14-21 days. The FDA has approved the Dexcom sensor for 7 days only, but since the FDA does not pay for my equipment, I wear them longer with no ill effects.

Do keep us updated if you receive a reply from the author. It would not benefit me, but I have family members who are Type 2 diabetics.
