The Hurdles for Diabetics
The problem for the diabetic is often not that the disease is entirely incurable; indeed there are many well-documented cases of folks reversing and eliminating the symptoms of diabetes as well as halting the progression of the disease in its tracks. Rather, the problem for many is that the path to the cure has either not been revealed to them personally, or else the path is too difficult.
While no single cure can be expected to work for everybody, especially since there are different types of disease (for example, Type 1 and Type 2), if there is a method that offers a high level of success most would only dream of attaining, it may best be considered a miracle.
Essentially, the body only contains a small amount of sugar. Even in the worst event of hyperglycemia, the human blood may only contain the amount of sugar in a standard sugar packet one might dump in the morning cup of coffee – typically just a few grams. Unfortunately, even with just a few grams of glucose in the blood, the damaging effects of diabetes can and do occur. In a healthy non-diabetic individual, a few grams of glucose are not a problem, since the body produces and uses hormones such as insulin to regulate the sugar and bring it back down to levels that are not damaging.
An Option Trader’s Unique Perspective
Perhaps an unusual perspective, that of a stock-option trader can shed some light on the reason some folks lose their ability to regulate blood glucose. If so, this perspective may shed light on the method of reversing the disease itself. In other words, the option trader’s perspective may offer the cure. Again, no cure can be expected to work 100% of the time, but for some, the method may be their best chance at success.
The basis of option trading is that stock prices are somewhat predictable. Of course, they are not predictable in the sense that one can say this stock will go up tomorrow, or that one will go down. Nonetheless, there is some statistical sense of (more…)
