This is a lecture by Richard Bernstein M.D. on his book "The Diabetes Solution." He has treated patients with diabetes for over 30 yrs. as he has had Type 1 Diabetes since he was 12 and he is 78 now. (Note the video is loud at the very start when it comes on.)
Dr. Bernstein says that ALL obese people are Insulin Resistant and that in time ALL will develop Type 2 Diabetes if they continue with their high carb diets. He is very interesting and I've learned so much from reading his books. He was an Engineer first and studied his disease because he was getting complications and he went to medical school at 45 yrs old so he could get other doctors to listen to him on the research he'd done. He's very healthy now at 78.

Hi, my name is Anita and I have been diagnosed with pre diabetes. I am married, 39 years old, no children and coming from some victories, losing 15 kgs (I used to weigh 90kg, I reduced to 73 a year ago but then suffered of hyperthyroidism. Well, I'm positive with the small changes I need to make consistently and all is ahead to win. One year ago I bought an elliptic machine so I can workout at home. Any people with pre diabetes? Saludos a todos amigos.
