    Isn't a issue like this PRECISELY way steroids were invented?

    I don't know if this pertains to your Brother but it seems this is a muscle wasting issue.

    I would chalk it up to genetics and lifestyle. He takes metaformin now among alot of other things

    I emailed my mum to ask her about which type he is, thanks

    I’m vey confused here. By what you’re describing he sounds like a type 1 diabetic but I see your mom said he is type 2. Type is not ordinarily associated with weight loss. Is his blood sugar well controlled? I tend to agree with Evan here that it must be a digestion issue coming from part of his pancreas being removed. The defibrillator should not interfere with his weight training. How are his hormone levels.....at 45 I would imagine he’s a candidate for trt

    Oh god, this is way out of my knowledge mate. Sounds like he's been in denial of having it like many do and not managed it effectively. I hope he's going to be okay mate.

    If most of his Pancreas are removed,surely he is type 1 ? The pancreas cant be producing insulin if they are damaged / removed to that extent ? Has he had a C peptide test to see if he has any Beta cell function ? He should be able to weight train to some degree with the heart condition.I know someone who competes at a high level with a pacemaker.Best diet for him would be ketogenic type diet ( Thats is digestion isnt an issue ) Calorie dense,and it will keep insulin sensitivity high....

    My Grandfather and parents have Type II. I am very careful. Wish I had advice to offer OP but his health issues sound complex. Perhaps he can look into seeing a TCM Doctor? A lot of people do not believe in it but I like the Eastern approach as they treat the body and mind as a single entity. Here in the West, we tend to isolate health issues and you see a specialist for this and a specialist for that rather than a single practitioner who can treat the body and mind as an interconnected and multifaceted system. Best of luck.

    Diabetes itself is not a great science, but once you are at an advanced stage, all metabolic processes and signaling pathways are ruined, so it is very complex to attack.

    Years and years of advertising from the pharmaceutical industry have led to this vision of health, but people are not stupid, and even scientists and open-minded doctors are adopting a holistic approach.

    Those in charge of taking care of our health, even in countries where healthcare is free, have neglected the value of nutrition and exercise and have entrusted everything to medicines, whether by ignorance or interest. It is not surprising that the population is more stupid and sick every day.

    A balanced lifestyle can get you only so far when it comes to health. For serious chronic problems, medicines with powerful have to be used anyway, you can't treat an insulin deficit with just food, natural herbs and exercises, when insulin is produced by the pancreas, among other hormones.
