A little disapointed it's not a "hot meat" injection.

This drug needs injection every two days.
There is some drug byotta or whatever that is injected every day.
But this drug seems to reverse insulin resistance.

And it will only cost $100.00 a shot!

My wife takes Byetta twice daily.  It works good.  But one shot every two days would be good.  Reducing insulin insensitivity is even better though.

You mean byetta.   Problem with Byetta is it has an adverse reaction of stomach cramping,  Also not completely successful in reversing insulin resistance.  Although with this on the horizon, I remain hopeful in conquering type II diabetes so I can go back to eating sticks of butter and chowing down on entire boxes of donuts.

Grrreeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat, now the fatties will have no reason whatsoever to lose the lard.

I guess the question is, is the sugar (a) excreted or (b) packed away into fat cells. Because with (b) the side effect will be getting fatter.

Butter is good for you. It is the doughnuts that are wrecking you.

Eating a stick of butter on its own is very unlikely to cause diabetes. Green, runny shiat maybe, but no spike in blood sugar.

The donuts are a different story.

Fixed that for me.

Is it a high dose of Potassium Chloride? My cat had diabetes and KCl cured it with one injection.

Derek Lowe has a nice little writeup if you want some more scientific literacy: http://pipeline.corante.com/archives/2014/07/17/reversal_of_type_ii_d i abetes_may_be_possible.php

Of particular note is the fact that you don't want to just go injecting cell growth factors, unless you want to trade your diabeetus in for a shiny new collection of tumors.  But there are suggestions that the glucose regulation behavior may not be too closely tied to the cell growth behavior, so it might be possible to hit one button without hitting the others.  Doing that will take some chemistry.

Okay, I toooootally was thinking of something else.

/jeez I need to get laid
 
2014-07-17 12:33:25 PM  
Well that's great. More advancement for Type 2 Diabetes while Type 1 continues to be forgotten.
 
2014-07-17 12:53:50 PM  
I am in a Type II diabetes experimental study so I am getting a kick out of this...

Seriously, two shots a day for last two months and only 1 week to go. Last overnight I spent there, they pumped a quart glucose in my vein and my sugar never rose above 160. Yeah they pull blood every 10 minutes for 6 hours to check it...

Ever try to pee with an IV in each arm?

"FGF1 has been shown to interact with CSNK2B, CSNK2A2, HSPA9, S100A13, Casein kinase 2, alpha 1, Fibroblast growth factor receptor 1, FIBP, Fibroblast growth factor receptor 4, Fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 and Fibroblast growth factor receptor 3."


Anybody understand that word salad and whether it means that this stuff wouldn't play nice with other stuff? I saw in the article how FGF1 doesn't have the side effects of other current treatments, but that doesn't mean no side effects.

This is a preclinical result, so you're going to need to put that cupcake back down. You can have it in 5-10 years, if you're lucky and the results hold.

Well, easier access to penis (either one's own or someone else's) is a good motivator...

Know how much insulin pens cost? They're around $100 a pop I believe. So I'd wager it won't be very far off your estimate per injection...
