Why I choose Diabetes
To address the elephant in the room, no, I am not a doctor neither do I have any medical training at all. What I am is a 55yrs old retired detective living in the Bahamas where I was born and raised. I was inspired to do a lot of research on diabetes because my daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 21yrs. She showed no signs of being diabetic during her childhood, except for two occasions when she fainted in school once in junior school and again in high school. Doctor visits revealed no medical problems so we chalked it up to being in a crowded heated room since both times were during the school assembly.
My daughter eventually was put on two insulin shots a day. Even though she was taking insulin as prescribed she still ended up being admitted to the hospital twice a year. It wasn’t until she was advised by another diabetic patient to try a berberine supplement that she was able to control her sugar level. She took this supplement along with her insulin. I began doing research on this product. I found that berberine is a plant-based alkaloid. It was used as medicine for centries for a number of illnesses including diabetes.
As a result of this research, this website was created to showcase supplements or natural medicine that help regulate or balance your sugar level.
I also intent to add information on how to lower high blood pressure naturally since research shows that about 73% of persons with diabetes also has high blood pressure.
