I've been looking at diabetes, because as a result of recent checkups, I have pre-diabetes.

Generally resolvable if caught in time.

But it’s interesting when you think of how diabetes was probably diagnosed, after research, everything is clear, and everybody knows exactly what to do. You read forums, and there are all the tips and suggestions, all about exercise, taking medicines, or insulin, all clear and doable, but there isn’t a cure.

But before research, it wouldn’t have been at all that clear. For years you go without knowing you have it, and when it starts to affect you, you are well into the process, and in some cases damage done. Based on what you feel, you would have tried this and that… if you look diabetes up, there are even catecholamine implications, adrenaline, noradrenaline, dopamine, that kind of stuff. So I’m sure at first, before research people would have tried to attack this system or that system, with remedies usually used for those systems, but those systems are put out of kilter because of another reason, so those other solutions wouldn’t have worked, other than to make you feel better for a while.

Then research found out exactly WHY the systems were out of kilter. Now the whole process of diabetes makes a lot more sense. And many can live normal lives as a result.

Based on how I feel when I have high blood suger, I probably would have tried other things… I still don’t have to take medicines, but with the knowledge of what it is, it is really easy to make improvements on my life and how I feel.

I don’t know why we insist on losing  valuable time to make this move for POIS. Imagine knowing what it is and exactly what causes it. If we ONLY do that, it will be a BIG, BIG jump. We will do much more.

Think about it, it’s even worth taking out a loan. No problem taking out a loan for a car. Take one out for health.

WITHOUT RESEARCH THERE WILL BE NO CURE!
Sessions 5 to 9 days, mostly Flu-like, joints, digestion problems, light cognitive.
Niacin has changed my lif though, now 1 day MAX.
Somewhere in this interaction with Niacin is the answer!

Think about it, it’s even worth taking out a loan [to donate to our Research Fund]. No problem taking out a loan for a car.

Take one out for health.

I am also pre-diabetic.

Excellent analogy to what we're going through to get REAL research done, and to *finally* (I've been at this circular forum thing since Feb. '07 - my head is spinning with 6 loooooong years of posted...zzzzz......so-called "theories"!) see The Real Thing -- and to.......................... STOP OUR HOMEGROWN/FOREVER-SPECULATING (vs. scientifically researched medical theory) IDEAS ON WHAT POIS IS OR POIS ISN'T! Sorry for shouting, but I do get emotional.

Thank you, Daveman, and Thank You to Our True Supporters, financially and otherwise.

As per Daveman's recent post, I totally agree that before the end of March deadline the majority of discussion and effort here should be channelled toward getting the NORD grant. If you have time to spend thinking and posting about POIS in the next couple of months, please spend it thinking about fundraising for the grant. If you have an idea, please act on it. Sometimes there is a danger of discussing things too much rather than just carrying out our ideas. Its better to carry out 5 ideas, 4 of which end up failing than to just discuss things and not do any of them. One common characteristic of successful entrepreneurs is that they are not afraid to fail, thus they act on ideas more often than others and ultimately some of them work! And the first step is to just write that email or whatever it is you've been thinking about doing. Just take the first step and the rest follows. Who knows where it might lead. Every breakthrough success we've had here be it the October money bomb or the reddit campaign, getting POIS sufferers on TV (amazing!) and in newspapers, getting more doctors interested in POIS, having POIS officially recognised by the major US and European databases ....all of these have come from a small first step taken by individual forum members here.

Its a new year of opportunity - put aside your excuses (we all have them), be positive, act on your ideas and get your new year off to a flyer. You'll feel great that you did something for everyone (and don't forget that everyone includes you so you really can't lose).

Let's PLEASE put POIS *medical* theories/conjecture on hold till we get our Grant funded.

Our aim is to get The Medical Experts - not amateurs like us -  to diagnose us and come up with treatments - for ALL POISers.

Many thanks. I feel very proud and fortunate to be part of your POIS History and Maturation.
