Is There A Type 3 Diabetes?

This is a must read article.  No if’s, and’s or but’s – you have to read this article on how a poor diet is tied to what some are calling Type 3 Diabetes, better known as Alzheimer’s.

Read About Type 3 Diabetes.  And, if that were not enough, here’s another that explains it a bit better.

Now, I don’t agree with everything said, or with everything inferred.  But data is data and discovering the links it reveals is as much art as science.  If you don’t fear loss of touch and sensitivity; if you don’t fear blindness – both of which can be caused by diabetes if it isn’t controlled, Alzheimers should at least make you think twice and maybe even provide  a great reason to treat Diabetes with respect and to control it.

Look, I’m not trying to scare you to death, but diabetes is something you can manage and control.  If controlled; if your doctor tells you that you have it under control, then the gruesome side-effects will probably not take place any more than they would in the general population.  Plain and simple, control Diabetes and you can lead a normal life.

“But, Phil, you don’t know how hard it is.”  Wanna bet?  Very few start with an A1c of 13 – which is where I started three years ago.  I was 60+ pounds over-weight and ate ANYTHING I wanted.  Cookies.  Pies.  Cakes.  McDonald’s.  The Colonel.   I have to watch and think about every bite I take; I have to think about everything I put in my body and what it will do to my sugar/glucose reading.  Any of that sound familiar? Is it fun? NO.  But, will it mean that I live a full life – or at least the life I was supposed to have without the interference of Diabetes?  YES.

You see, you can do it.  You can control and manage Type 2 Diabetes.  A few of you will even beat it into complete submission.  I know this.  I know you can do it.  Not only because I have it under control – and have had it under control for 18 months, or so, but because I know you want a full life.  You want to see children, grand-children, and great-grandchildren.  What can happen is pretty scary if you don’t get it managed.  Start today – right now.

So, what do you need to do?  That’s right. If you have read a posting here before you know the drill.  Diet. Exercise. Meds.  If you are just starting your battle, or if you want to take it to the next level, see The Type 2 Diabetes Survival Guide.

You can do this.  You can change your eating habits.  You can lose weight.  And, you can control your Diabetes – yes, it is YOUR Diabetes.  It doesn’t belong to anyone else.  And, don’t wait for that magic pill to come along to take Diabetes away – who knows how Diabetes might attack while you are waiting.  Don’t wait.  Start your road to control today.

Is there a Type 3 Diabetes?  I am not sure, but I do know I do not want to experience it.

Take control of your life today.  Please.

As always, thank you for reading.


I am not a doctor or health professional. I am just a guy who is working everyday to control Type 2 Diabetes. My goal is to offer hope, help and solutions for day-to-day living for the diabetic. The disease can be controlled. It can be managed. And, you can do it!
