I can't get the link to work, Patti. But, yes, I would like to know if there are patterns in the people in whom it doesn't work. Do they research people for whom it is not completely a "lifestyle disease"? Thinking about myself and my kidney condition, I never see any acknowledgement of the role of other meds in causing diabetes. Was there a point at which I could have reversed it? What if I'd refused the atenolol (that I no longer take) that I was on when before being diagnosed diabetic (not that it was considered a risk then)? Or was I just stuffed by having to take prednisolone for ever? My weight's normal now, so it's obviously too late.
