I just heard that 1 in 3 kids will develope diabetes. The big pharm must be loving this. With evryone believing theres no way to cure it only manage it with med's. We are becoming like sheep. Thank God I have free will and choices today. Not ever cured, just another victim.

Sorry diabetis is not cureable unless by God himself. The best we can do is pray for help keeping it in check. Eat right, diet, exercise and take meds if needed.

I have to believe that God put this in my path for a reason. I have lost part of my foot to this disease. I do not question why. It is not my place. I am here at His pleasure and for His service. If He sees fit to "cure" me, He will. Until then I will strive to improve myself mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

I wish there was a cure and maybe someday there will be, but for now no. Once a diabetic always a diabetic. You can control it but not cure it.

For us, there is just acceptance of the disease and following the prescribed life-style changes.....and using SparkPeople to help us through the tough days! Now that is a mouth full. Acceptance is more powerful than you know!!! Next come knowledge along with determination! emoticon Giving it a punch up side its head!

One of my relative in india was told by an Ayurveda practitioner that he was cured of diabetes and all he had to do was take the Ayurveda pills. The relative didn't check his blood sugar further and did not do any diet control. Unfortunately, the death was sudden at 50 years of age.

Just stay connected here. Plan your work and work your plan. You'll get there. Takes lots of commitment, there will be bumps in the road, but for me, that's when Spark People was especially helpful to get over the bumps! You can do this for sure.

I was wondering how you did that. I asked my daughter to help me in July when she was home from school but she never did get around to it. I will try it later today. I am computer challenged when it comes to things like that.

WooHoo! Looks good! I don't know what that makes me if your computer challenged. HEE HEE I am constantly having to swallow my pride and ask one of my teens, "How the heck do I do this??" Nothing more humbling, I can assure you!

Have a great day and glad it worked.

Here's your answer!

How do I add or edit the weight loss ticker, profile picture and/or a signature to my message board posts?
You'll need to create a SparkPage to add these to your message board signatures.


1.Go to the Community tab at the top of any page and select SparkPages.
2.Click Create a New SparkPage (or View Your SparkPage, then Edit SparkPage if you already have one).
3.Complete the information for the title and description of your SparkPage. Your SparkPage can also be used as a personal homepage to share information about yourself with other members. If you don't want to have your SparkPage available to others, you can check the box to keep your page private (offline).
4.Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the weight loss ticker.
5.Check the box that says "Yes, show my weight loss ticker."
6.Put in your starting weight and goal weight. Please note that your current weight on your ticker will update automatically when you weigh in, but we will not update your ticker starting and goal weight if you change your goals on your program; you'll need to update starting and goal weight on your SparkPage.
7.Select your ticker icon.
8.Select your ticker background.
9.Click "Save Changes" at the bottom or top of the page.

To edit your ticker:
1.Scroll down the page to your ticker, make any necessary changes.
2.Click Save Changes at the top or bottom of the page.

Hope this helps you. It's nice to have it as part of your page and posts.

I so agree with you! You can control this diease, and sometimes are lucky to do it with just diet and exercise, but it never goes away. Once a diabetic always a diabetic. My goal is to be med free or at least not be insulin dependant.

I too have been an RN for over 30 years and am still practicing. And I am still amazed that people think they can be cured and don't realize that it is a chronic disease with severe complications if not controlled.

I am a still-practicing RN and I can tell you that there is no cure yet, no pancreas clone either, although some of the stem cell research is promising for the future. For us, there is just acceptance of the disease and following the prescribed life-style changes.....and using SparkPeople to help us through the tough days!

Do the things you have to do so you can do the things you want to do.

Each small step is progress on the journey.

As a nurse for 34 yrs. I have to agree. Until a human pancreas can be cloned, there is not a cure for diabetes! It is only controlled with diet/nutrition, exercise, medication as is appropriate. Not cured. Until then, as a type 2 diabetic, I am committed to the Spark principles of developing healthy lifestyle habits including proper nutrition/diet, exercise/rest, emotionally healthy habits and keeping life in balance. That's what it's all about, even without diabetes!

I agree with WITHERBEELINDA, they are doing the same thing we are doing with lifestyle changes not "diet" and excercise.

Diet is key. They are just controlling it with diet which to me is no different than what we do.

Some day scientists will learn how to clone a pancreas. When that day comes it will be possible to cure diabetes but even then diet modification will still be necessary.

I'd never heard of an ayurvedic treatment for diabetes so I looked it up. Here's what I found

Ayurvedic practitioners attack diabetes using a multiprong approach. First, they address diet modification, eliminating sugar and simple carbohydrates, and emphasizing complex carbohydrates. Protein is limited, since excessive intake can damage the kidneys. Fat is also limited because there is often a deficiency of pancreatic enzymes, making fat digestion difficult.

They also use colon cleansing and herbs, but it sounds like the basics of their treatment is diet. Sound familiar?

When you want to eat something so badly but after reading the ingredients, you know that you shouldn't eat, it's really painful.
I din't want to live with this sad feeling so I tried alternative treatments, I took a chance for ayurveda treatment. I had type 2 diabetes, I got treated at Ayurvaid hospital as they are government accredited so found them genuine. The treatment worked diabetes in contlrol now and I also have the liberty to eat some of my fav foods. you can get in touch with them and tell them about your type of diabetes and know about the treatment procedure. You can get their contact from their site. www.ayurvaid.com
