diabetes is a disease caused by people not listening to their bodies for
prolonged periods of time. whether you can actually become asymptomatic
depends mostly upon severity.

Lifestyle choices can eliminate the disease, if you listen in time.

Bullshit. Tell that to a 4 month old baby with diabetes.

Being asymptomatic is not having eliminated the disease. As long as I use
my drops, my intraoccular pressure is fine -- but my glaucoma is still
there. In type 2 diabetes, controlling one's blood sugars with diet and
exercise is possible, but it doesn't mean the diabetes is gone.

I don't eat a special diet, but I'm fairly thin (also 6'2" but more like
165 pounds). I lost about 15 pounds in the last year just by walking. I
went from 4 diabetes pills a day to 1/2. My cholesterol went from OK to
very good (I'm on a max dose of statins). I try to walk three hours a
day. Fortunately, I really like to walk.

Are you an alcoholic for life? I don't think so. particularly if you've
never shown signs in the first place...

Being asymptomatic on medication isn't truly asymptomatic. Depression and
other inflammatory diseases can become asymptomatic on their own, and they
are _gone_.

depends on how bad you have it... if you listen in time, you don't
actually have much problem with the whole shebang. (none of this, no
sugar, never stuff...)

then again, i know people never formally diagnosed with diabetes, who
still watch their sugar intake (mostly by moderating with chicken soup).

Keep trying, it's worth it. I tried countless times over the years to quit,
often not making it through the day. Then one day the right circumstances
came together, I decided that would be my last day smoking --- I finished
that pack and managed to quit with virtually no effort.

Other than cigs going up to $3.00US a pack I couldn't tell you what the
"right circumstances" were, and they'll surely be different for everyone.
But if you don't try, it won't happen.

Maybe this will help: food tastes one *hell* of a lot better now that I'm
no longer smoking.

My daughter could turn her tonge upside down, as in rolling the tip 180
degrees. Really freaky.

You are on to something there with Type 2, but
that's not the case at all with Type 1.

Well the MIL wan't too specific, but she's apparently pretty much on
the South Beach Diet, with some exceptions. You'd want to ask your doc
first, but it seems more logical and easy-to-follow than most diets.
I think she is still in Phase I, sometimes with a little overlap. We
don't have the big book, but my wife has the companion "The South
Beach Diet Good Eats Good Carbs Guide". It's about 130 pages, was 7
bucks I think. It's just loaded with common sense, and even has some
dining-out guides. Turns out, it was originally for pre-diabetes
patients who were at risk. It's by Arthur Agatston, ISBN
1-57954-958-6. YMMV.
