Re: [IP] Insulin Resistance in Type 1 diabetics

First off, you KNOW that there is no stupid question -- except the one that
isn't asked -- and that there is no expert here.  However, one of the men in
my local type one group is taking Rezulin as well as the standard (ie my
horror) NPH and regular MDI regime.  It has decreased his R requirement a
bit.  Yet, I've heard his endo do a presentation for medical professionals
at the hospital and he referred to those drugs as only for Type 2's???  I
guess that it's still esperimental.  There has to be insulin present in
order for it to work, but all of us need insulin to survive, so we obviously
have insulin present.  It just so happens that we don't secrete our own.
I'm not too much help, but a bit of data....
