[IP] Review of Discovery Health show tonight
for those who were unable to watch it...
i began to watch this with my 11 year old daughter. She has done a project
on diabetes, so i thought we'd watch it together. .
the show began, with a statement how diabetes is a major killer, and cause
of early kidney disease, and blindness (not that too many of us, are
unaware of that).
I dont think that hit my daughter was quite ready to hear that.
it seems to hit a little hard, and she went and watched a little lighter
programming, like csi.... ;-)
first, it did appear to be quite informative and accurate, except for one
portion (i think).
let me first say, that, although ive been able to , at this point, survive
i in no way admit, to knowing all that much about it...
i THOUGHT, that COMA , was brought on by high BS, ONLY.... the program
that "low bs, could bring on coma". my thought is, that this was an error,
but, like i said,
i could be totally wrong....
BTW, i think they got type II, and type I correct, for those concerned.
i was quite surprised, that the only treatment for (type i) diabetes, was
whether you think the pump is, or isnt a cure, is your own personal choice,
i dont think that any of us, dont consider the pump a viable treatment
it was never mentioned, even once. (obviously, not a cure, but a pretty
decent treatment, IMO)
The main subjects, were people, who had a difficult time, either keeping
control, with mdi,
or having complications... and, for them, different types of transplants
(mostly cells, in one form, or another)
it WAS quite interesting, and definitely worth the watch.
i did leave it, with a better understanding of the techniques being used and
feeling like a cure was on the way, though no definitive determination, as
