Try being a little more sensitive - The Diabetes Blog

Try being a little more sensitive - The Diabetes Blog:

It looks like I have to do more research on citrus flavones and their effect on insulin resistance. The evidence for the benefits of Resveratrol is becoming quite solid, but credible references for citrus flavone research would be appreciated.

"I grabbed a copy of Life Extension magazine. I'm always a bit suspicious of anything that retail stores give away for free, so I admittedly paid little attention to it at first. But, after perusing through its 110-plus pages, I have to say that I was quite impressed with some of the information contained therein. In particular, I found a small piece on Citrus Peel Extract, and its supposed relationship to insulin sensitivity, to be rather interesting.

Based on what was stated in this article, it appears as though citrus peel extract has for some time been used to improve cholesterol levels. However, a recent study involving some fancy scientists, a few hamsters, and a sugar-rich diet to induce insulin resistance and elevated triglycerides led to the discovery that impaired insulin sensitivity could be reversed by supplementing with citrus flavones.

While this is great news (for humans and hamsters), you may want to consult with your doctor first before taking this or any supplement."

SYMLIN-- Where have you been? - The Diabetes Blog

SYMLIN-- Where have you been? - The Diabetes Blog:

I came across this link on a Byette analogue I missed somehow:

"when non-diabetics produce insulin, they simultaneously release a hormone called Amlyn. The synthetic form of this is SYMLIN. Well it's about time! I assure you, as certain as the sun rises in the East-it works!

SYMLIN slows down the movement of food through your stomach. This affects how fast sugar enters your blood after eating. SYMLIN also helps you to feel full more quickly during meals, causing you to eat less than you normally would. SYMLIN is always used with insulin to help lower blood sugar during the 3 hours after meals. You may have already heard of its sibling: BYETTA. Amylin manufactures both, SYMLIN and BYETTA. There's a chemical juxtaposition, but I'm no rocket scientist. Anybody want to take a stab at it?

SYMLIN is not an ideal drug for every diabetic. It does have its side effects, the most pronounced being nausea. However, if you've been searching for an agent to quell the search and destroy mission insulin conveys to your appetite - SYMLIN might be your new friend on the battlefield."
