Steven Liang has had diabetes for 20 years. He used to work as a programmer  and loved to drink two cans of soda in front of the computer every day. By the age of forty, he was diagnosed as type I diabetes. He followed doctor’s instruction and started insulin. He was never overweight, but the high sugar drink created the inflammation in his pancreas and eventually the pancreas cannot produce sufficient insulin. he has been using insulin to regulate his blood sugar for 20 years. He was told that he can eat whatever he wants, just adds more insulin. His blood sugar went up to 170 to 200 if he had some processed food or eat dinner too late before he came to see me. A few years ago, he came to Boston Acupuncture Clinic in Needham trying to control his blood sugar and neck and lower back pain. I told him high blood sugar and high insulin can cause inflammation in his blood vessels, muscles and nerves, destroying his network.  He could develop cataract, impotence, kidney failure, heart problems and neuropathy. He started drinking tea and cutting down the processed food. Now his blood sugar has been lowered to 100 to 120 most of the time in the morning. His A1c has been lowered. He needs to cut down the dosage of his insulin. He has more energy and his neck and lower back pain are gone at the age of 70.
