Thanks everyone for your support. Someone wrote to me that it would take millions of $ to have it published.
Today it was published without a penny.
Only McCain, Huckabee answered diabetes query
April 10, 2008
My son was diagnosed as a juvenile diabetic at age 7, and he much later found out, after taking the C-Peptide Test, that he actually had Type 2 diabetes.
The insight my son gained from this test is that his pancreas is working and producing above normal insulin levels. It points out that not enough attention is paid to the mechanism of "insulin resistance," the reason so many are Type 2 diabetics.Recently, he discovered that Dr. Jesse Roth, formerly of the NIH, called for such research, only to have his advice ignored for almost 30 years. Since this discovery, my son has worked to attract attention to the lack of research necessary for the Type 2 diabetes population.
He wrote letters to all of the presidential candidates. Only Sen. John McCain and former Gov. Mike Huckabee answered. Gov. Huckabee is himself a former Type 2 diabetic and showed much understanding in the matter. Unfortunately, Sen. Hillary Clinton, Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John Edwards did not respond.

|Oops...got side-tracked over to your son's website couple days ago and forgot to come back here and comment. Read everything on his site.
Good for you for getting the PR published in paper. ALWAYS worth a try to get information like this to the public.
Hope others went over to diabetescasestudy.com, too! Congrats to your son for keeping track and writing about his experience. I sent URL for site to my cousin...there's diabetes in his family.

|Happy to have been wrong, but then again, you know that life has made me a cynic when it come to politicians.

|Congrats!!! This is big news in many ways for you and for diabetes. Amazing how they did not answer, usually people answer only when they can relate in a direct way, what a shame that is.|
