    Here you can find a very effective natural treatment for diabetes:

    Diabetes can be "reversed" or go into "remission". I believe that what that is is decreasing the need to take medications. A person who has diabetes will always have it... but there are cases where a type 2 can either reduce medications or even eliminate them... but will still need to watch diet, get plenty of exercise and keep their weight down. This is called management and control. However, that does not mean that there will never be one. Research has taken huge advances and the more scientists learn about it, the higher likelihood that a cure might come about someday.

    While I did recently read an article that stated gastric lap band or gastric bypass MAY be a potential cure, more research is needed and even if this one day is a cure, it would only be effective on type 2s who are obese since neither of those procedures are performed on people who are of normal weight or body mass. Stem cell transplants are still highly controversial and most likely, have a long way to go before it is approved as a diabetes cure by the FDA. Since the vast majority of diabetics are type 2 (roughly 90%), those of us who are type 1 seem to get lost in the shuffle. EMT type 1 for more years than I care to remember, use a pump. Let me add that when I mean diabetes can be controlled and managed without medication but with diet, exercise and weight control, I'm referring to type 2. This is not an option for type 1s, who must take insulin, either by injections or a pump, to survive.

    A TV vet once said a Yorkie bar would do harm to a yorkie, so a lot of Chocolate is bad. Things that swell up should be avoided (raisins, dried fruit). Our terrier generally eats a bit of whatever we eat as well as proper dog food. and no problems in 11 years. Too much sweet/sticky stuff can give dental problems, and small bones can get stuck. Remember dogs are scavengers, so there's not much that is bad that they don't bring back up. Human medicines are not right without vet's permission. Alcohol isn't good either.

    Doge tend to work on the basis of get it down and worry about the digestion later

    As long as its not in a large amount it wont hurt them, I have had dogs in the past eat chocolate and stuff and it not affect them. I dont know what other people may think and personally dont care but I feed my dogs human food all the time and I have always had healthy and happy dogs. I dont feed in large amounts but as my parents and grandparents did, I always make a little extra for them, its good for there skin and coats especially the grease from food. I have never had any problems and the vets say my dogs are perfect and healthy. But as I said you dont want to feed them to much because that can harm them, and its really always best to mix any human food with dry dog food.

    Raisins, grapes, onions, chocolate. A hersheys kiss or kitkat may cause an upset stomach but a bag of choco chips or cooking chocolate, you need to make the dog vomit and possibly go to ER.
