Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: a diabetes link with a plastics compound that mimics estradiol

Sorry about forgetting to put this in the note I just sent.

There are ferret diabetes patients who are helped by having Lupron to
better control a diseased adrenal (some amazingly helped). This has
been long known, but perhaps there is more data now on what can feed
into that given the newly discovered receptors.

I wonder if it means that possibly providing Lupron and melatonin
before surgery for pancreatic and adrenal woes may decrease the rate
or degree of post-surgical diabetes? It seems a possible route, too,
toward seeing if perhaps adrenal disease present may be an indicator
of worse post-surgical pancreatic problems with diabetes.

Data on that is in both the FML and FHL Archives.

The FML Archives URL can be found in that list's header each day.
The FHL archives has a link from the homepage or the FHL and is also
in my signature.
