Well, Bhairitu, it's always a good day when I learn something new and in this case it's 2 new bits of info. Have not heard of either of these kinds of diabetes and admit am horrified by the Type 3. I still think, and am hoping I'm right, that diet can go far in controlling it.

She told me once that she thought my mother was a "brittle diabetic." I thought it was a term she made up and then looked it up. That diagnosis fits me too. Brittle diabetes never go full blown type one but have similar symptoms throughout life. There is also the relatively recently discovered type three diabetes which is seen to be prevalent in folks who sit on their butts and use computers a lot. The research on that suggests that the pancreas is not the only organ which secretes insulin but our brain as well.

She went from being normal to borderline to Type 2 and now, daily injections. A big problem is that she doesn't like traditional breakfast food. And I think she doesn't quite get that carbs contribute to high blood sugar. Anyway, I've got high hopes about this consult on Tuesday.

People who have experienced hypoglycemia get very paranoid about missing meals. In the 1970s among TM'er hypoglycemia was rampant mainly due to eating bad vegetarian diets. Many went back to eating meat and felt better. Maybe some truth in MMY's "eat what your mother puts before you?" We are essentially what our ancestors ate. If one is paranoid about hypoglycemia the tendency is to overeat rather than do the anal and inconvenient small meals throughout the day.

Were you also meditating during the fast? ---In email@example.com mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org, <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> mailto:no_re...@yahoogroups.com wrote: I did it, once, for *four* solid hours. Two years ago, around Columbus Day. Nothing - not even a peanut, or half cup of tap water - zip. You probably don't believe me, but its true. I think my years of TM helped, a lot. I must have been in a trance or something, to withstand it. I seriously thought I was going to pass out. Almost like Richard Harris, in that scene, from, "A Man Called Horse". Even so, I am working with a teacher, now, who says I can achieve *five hours*, of non-food, non-water - no problem. He's expensive, but worth it. I think he's Indian. Total cost is ~$1,000 (not including the non-food and non-water, of course). This is a tough crowd, here on FFL, so I'll say up front: This guy is no cult leader. After all, I've been around the block. Don't knock it, 'til you've tried it. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com mailto:FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <email@example.com> mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org wrote: Michelle Pfeiffer, the actress, has disclosed that she was once part of a “cult” which believed humans can exist without food or water.http://tinyurl.com/odb3y4c
