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.

I come from slaves in the US. We suffered lynchings and burnings because we believed that there was something right that had to be pursued. I was brought up to make the fight for justice and this is was this blog has been for me. It is dedicated to my family who died young from heart attacks, strokes and cancer. It is based on the belief that this did not have to happen and that it can be stopped, if I would make the fight.
In this blog, I have not only brought forth the information about this diabetes but also put myself on the line by actively experimenting on myself to show that this is a special type of diabetes. I can't do it alone. You, out there, have to push this issue in China, Indonesia, Brazil, Turkey, Africa. It is up to us to make this known and get proper care for our brothers and sisters.
I've made the fight. Please, make the fight as well. Nothing will get better without our efforts. No more funerals, no more amputations without the understanding of what we face. This is what I ask. This is what making the fight is about. The information is here. What is needed is the will to push it and challenge all the thoughts on diabetes that endangers us.
Take this information and, please, make the fight.

There has to be some sort of failsafe in the body to prevent this. Cutting off all insulin would be deadly as well but the beta cells have two phases; one is slow and steady and the other puts out large amounts of insulin in a short time. It would have to suppress the first phase. What we do know about type 2 is that early stages typically involve reactive hypos then the loss of 1st phase insulin. The later phase involves the steady rising flow of insulin to keep bringing blood sugars back in line. This is an interesting supposition but what I’ve shown is that hyperglycemia suppresses my 1st phase.
