Health- Diabetes


This is a picture I took in college and I’ve always loved the detail.

Anyway, this is my first post in a while, but I’m back. The thing I wanted to discuss was medicine, and in particular diabetes. I noticed in the news, they’ve reversed the effects of diabetes type 2 in dogs as well as mice. This astonished me, and inspired me to do my radio project on the research and development for diabetes. They did it using 2 drugs that are used for the treatment of cancer. This made me think. Is there always a solution, it must be frustrating for researchers and doctors knowing that there is one right answer out of billions of possibilities. A simple antibiotic can cure lepracy nowadays. Any wrong answer leads closer to a right one though. 
I’m going to interview Roy Taylor and Mark Walker, Professors  doctors and researchers for Diabetes, and I’m excited. I have very close family members with type 2. I want to know more.

 I want to follow the steps and hope that this generation and the next get even better care then us. There is always room for improvement.
I can’t wait to report on it and find out hands on, rather then googling it on my laptop.
