Before reading any further, please know that this blog does not constitute medical advice. My plan is to outline my own experiences in managing type 1 diabetes in the hopes that I can provide interesting and educational information for my readers. I do not recommend that you try to emulate any of the experiments that are discussed on this blog. I have been living with type 1 diabetes since September In this post, I plan to discuss an ongoing self-experiment to see if there are ways I can help myself feel better more often, avoid dangerous hypoglycemia as much as possible, and exercise more safely and enjoyably. During this time, the ailing pancreas is still sputtering — doing a little bit to help out — giving its last gasp as it is finally killed off by the immune system. This honeymoon period has been documented to last anywhere from a couple days to up to a year — in very rare cases, longer. Every person is different, and without careful, stimulated c-peptide testing it is difficult to discern if the pancreas has made any sort of a comeback. It is also important to discuss disease duration because I have seen a couple people post that they cured their own type 1 diabetes — only to either vanish from the internet or resume taking insulin injections after a brief remission. In one amazing case, a blogger named Caroline Potter 1 reported that she temporarily stopped using insulin for 2.
Within type 1 diabetes, however, there can still be some variation. Below is the direct data from myfitnesspal. Starting from the beginning of the second week, the fasting blood glucose level was significantly lower in the FMD group than in the control group Fig. Resources Community Advice Patient Guides. I maintained my 5. The clinical impact of islet transplantation. Many recent studies have indicated that gut microbiota are involved in the development of type 2 diabetes [ 31, 32, 33 ]. So the researchers next looked at human pancreatic cells. When too much insulin is released during the day, our body begins to store this excess glucose as fat in our thighs, chest and stomach area. Summary Stem cell-based therapies can potentially reverse organ dysfunction and diseases but the removal of impaired tissue and reactivation of the program leading to organ regeneration pose major challenges. But — I need to wait.
