Type 2 diabetes is one of the fastest growing health problems in the United States. It is frequently progressive, getting harder to control the longer you have it.

Type 2 diabetes is characterized by the inability of the body to use insulin properly (insulin resistance.) Over time, some type two diabetics require insulin shots to help control their diabetes.

(Type one diabetics cannot produce insulin, but they may over time become insulin resistant. Type two may have their pancreas quit producing insulin and wear out, so it is possible to have characteristics of both at the same time.)

I am a type two diabetic, and have been for about 6 years. Yesterday I started a new medication, which is a major breakthrough in the treatment of type two diabetes. It helps with insulin resistance, to help your body use insulin better.

This is not really a gadget, but it promisses to be a big improvement in my life due to medical technology. One of the things that this medication is supposed to do is to help protect beta cells, the cells that produce insulin.

The medication is injected, and is based on an enzyme present in Gila Monster Spit.

I will report back on how well it is working for me. It is already improving my blood sugar more than insulin did for me.

Sometimes technology is truely wonderful.

**** Disclaimer - this is a new medication that has been studied for only a few years. I have deliberately not included the name of the medication because I am talking about my experience, not offering medical advice. If you think you might be diabetic (tired, blury vision, always hungry, always thirsty, rapid weight loss without trying) please get checked by a doctor right away.
