  • well insulin is the master hormone of ageing so tight control of glucose levels with insulin does not increase life span acording to studies . type ones die 20 years early , type two die 10 years early. the latter you get it the better and its reversible by losing weight. Oh before insulin a diabetic diet was used.

    • What was the diet like? I’m assuming low sugar and salt, and perhaps no carbs.

      • If you have diabetes, consult your doctor. You won’t get the appropriate advice on this website or any other. Diabetes is managed based on many personal health factors.
