      Hi so far the insurance company has not helped at all!! They ask me to try the net, the website for aetna is not ez to navigate and seems laid out for DOCTORS not medical suppliers, so I have to call them 1 at a time and wait to get denied. If i call too many at the same time, they will confuse the ins co and the doctor....

      Hi Ellen, I just wanted to pop in and tell you that I was so moved by your thread about your son's anniversary. Thank you for sharing. You wear the twenty years well. I hope that there is a cure before we hit the twenty year mark. But if not I want to be just like you!!!! You are such a great role model. Thank you for all you have done in the diabetes world!!!!

      You wrote: Is it true that persons with type 2 have presence of c-peptide but develop complications anyway? And persons with type 1 likely have no presence of c-peptide whatsoever and never develop complications?

      To which I say: Huh? I hope I didn't suggest that. Did I suggest that? I will go and reread what I wrote after I write this. On the assumption that you were not being sarcastic (and I have Asperger's, so forgive me if that was sarcasm):

      What I was trying to say that a LACK of c-peptide is a risk factor (maybe a very big one) for a few SPECIFIC complications, not all of them. I assume that people with type 1 diabetes of more than a few years' duration have low levels of c-peptide, and that some but not all have no c-peptide at all. I assume that any type 2 diabetic who doesn't use insulin has c-peptide, and that most (but not all) type 2s who do use insulin have some c-peptide but not necessarily as much as nondiabetics.
      Persons with type 1 and 2, no c-peptide and lots of c-peptide, develop complications, but a few particular complications may only happen in people with low or no c-peptide.

      Because of you request, I'm about to start a thread in the research section on c-peptide. I think somebody else on the forums is probably more qualified to evaluate the research becuase I don't even know what the differences between the types of neuropathy are. Some of the people whose advocacy of c-peptide I read strike me as kooky, yet the research on pubmed about c-peptide and diabetic complications, particularly neuropahty, is pretty convincing to me.

      Good thing you told me you posted here...I never would have found it otherwise :-). I pretty much never check this page. Did you try it on bare floors? Our entire house is tile.
