Re: Help for a friend, could this be diabetes? (Archive in acne.)

Hi, kmd.

Your friend will likely pay a much greater price for her convenience of taking the "easy way out" than she ever could have imagined! Her weight change is a common one in some people who have used prednisone since it seems to reset the appestat for ever after. It also can trigger biabetes in someone with a genetic susceptibility which she surely has.

She needs to get that checked out but has to know enough to insist on a 5 hour GTT with a 3 day preparation of at least 400 grams of carbohydrate/day before the test.

Let us know what she learns. Rather than deal with the hormonal imbalance causing her acne, she elected to just put tape over the warning lights on her dashboard. Now those same hormonal imbalances are causing her present conditions. EVERY doc knows that new obesity problems and diabetes are hormonally related!

The body mind just keeps shouting louder and louder until the person hears the plea for help!

Namaste`

Walt
