Can a diabetic do a colon cleanse program?

Posted by admin on Thursday 29 October 2009

I’m type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for a little over a year. I feel like I’m in seiruos need for a colon cleanse (I’m not going to go into details) and I’d like to do something that basically flushes my system out and can help me on my way to eating better and keeping my colon clean and healthy. Are there any colon cleanse programs that are safe for diabetics?

Whatever you do make sure to ask your Dr. or the manufacturer of product.
So often most of these can have added sugars for osmotic reasons. Read label very carefully .
And keep very close watch on glucose levels during and after.

    The medical profression today agrees there’s no such thing as "colon cleansers". Though, there is no shortage of companies that put products out claiming otherwise.

    The best thing for you to do would be to eat a healthy diet and drink enough water.

    Another way to help your intestines is to take acidophilus.
    Acidophilus helps maintain the healthy bacteria that live in the intestinal tract.

    I’d stay away from so-called colon cleansers.References :

    These so-called " colon cleansers " are little more than snake oil.
    the colon is more than capable of taking care of itself.
    ————————————-
    Snake oil is a traditional Chinese medicine used to treat joint pain. However, the most common usage of the words is as a derogatory term for compounds offered as medicines which implies that they are fake, fraudulent, or ineffective. The expression is also applied metaphorically to any product with exaggerated marketing but questionable or unverifiable quality.

    I think with type 1 diabetes "any procedure" that you do on your own without the help from your doctor could be every "Unsafe"even"Risky"
    Talk with your doctor first, tell him what you want to do and let him advise you with your diet&any
    "Safe"ways to do this procedure (if any) without it causing any problems with your diabetes.References :
