RE: [IP] now t1 vs t2

_All_ T1s are able to make do without insulin -- the question is
imprecise.

The question that should be asked is, "For how long, and accepting
what amount of damage?"

Unfortunately, quacks abound. For T1s and even more so for T2s,
the two best things that we can undertake for stable blood sugars
are a balanced diet and a lot of exercise. (And yes, this is
independent of weight loss; but where indicated, weight loss ranks
just as high.)

Cheers,
Felix.
