Re: [IPk] Insulin resistence?

This may be very left of centre but Grace often goes low after osteopathy
and I have wondered if insulin tends to store in the tissues as I have
noticed when her arms are involved in the manipulations she tends to swing
low. I wonder if dragging the lawn mower might stimulate these tissues too?
May be rubbish but I know of a child who was fine at the start of first
session and had dipped to 0.6mmols at end. This never happened before or
since for them but I've been watching to see a pattern with Grace,
Also massage and yoga both bring down bloods which again would fit with the
idea of there being residues of insulin in the tissues. It would fit with
the idea but the idea may be for the birds!!!
