T2 Diabetes and gut bacteria Bimuno
« on: 19 June 2017, 11:23:24 AM »
I was sent the link below from the Diabetes UK website.  It seems that research has shown that insulin resistance in Type2 diabetics is linked to bacteria in the mucus that lines the colon.  I don't want to wait several years until medication is available from the NHS so I have decided to try Bimuno which is a pre biotic powder.  I have not gone for the free trial of this product as companies often charge people for follow on samples even when they don't want it.  (I know from experience when dealing with a company supplying raspberry keytones). 

I have sent off for 2 x 30 days of Bimuno powders at a cost of £17.98 and will let you know how I get on.

Here is the link:

Diabetes Type2 diagnosed March 2014.  Treated by diet only.  HbA1c 60 on diagnosis, 52 in June 2014, 50 October 2014, 44 December 2014, 48 May 2015, 50 Sep 2015, 53 Jan 2016, 50 Oct 2016, 56 Feb 2017, 50 Jun 2017. Pacemaker fitted 2008.

When I get old I don't want people thinking
                      "What a sweet little old lady"........
                             I want 'em saying
                    "Oh Crap! Whats she up to now ?"

Just to clarify, that site has nothing to do with DiabetesUK the charity, but is a commercial site.


However someone on their forum gave the powder a good rating.  I should be interested to know how you get on with it.

I didn't realise that it was a commercial site as they call themselves "Diabetes.co.uk".  I started getting emails from them a while back and just assumed it was "Diabetes UK".

If you are getting emails it probably means you have joined their forum at some point.  The charity is diabetes.org.uk

It does seem to be one of the current theories. I'm sure we will find gut bacteria is linked to lots of things, just which bacteria and which things are a bit unknown yet. I'll be interested in your findings.
