The accepted knowledge is that Diabetes destroys gradually over years. Ketosis Prone Type 2 diabetes is an acute form of type 2. This type 2 can reach fasting blood sugars of 300 or higher in months. This blog brings together all the documentation that I could find in the world and my speculation of what it means for KPD’s in specific and diabetics in general. I ask you to leave your stories about what happened to you so that we can all gain a better understanding of what we are dealing with.

Even if my fondest wishes are met.
I can't go back.
I will have caged a tiger but there will always be that tiger and I will never let it out.
Vigilance is my defense and having seen the destruction of this beast,
I can never consider myself safe.

There is a type of remission but having seen its cold yellow eyes, I think not.
I can not ever go back.
My innocence is lost in that regard but is that so bad?
I have played carelessly in a dangerous place and been mauled.
Now I know this place and wish to forever avoid it.
I have lost my ignorance but why would I wish to reclaim it whilst a tiger paces near by.


  1. This is so true, for more than just diabetes. I really like the tiger metaphor. Well done.

  2. Here here. This claims truth with all tigers in life. I have played this out many times in my life on many fronts. You words ring home..true, true, true......thank you for the reminder. i will keep it in front of my soul.

  3. Michael, I would like to share your remission poem with other FaceBook Diabetes groups that I belong too. With your credit and permission. I will wait for your response. you again for the work of art. Andre
