Almased -- for persons who have Cellosis or PreCellosis?

- - -

FYI -- the word "diabetics" used 3 times
in the following, and in every instance,
they're actually referring solely to persons
with Cellosis, although, of course, persons
with PreCellosis may also be interested
in the substance.

One time, they mention "type 2 diabetes"
and, of course, the new word for that con-
dition is Cellosis.

Of note, they mention weight loss, reduced
insulin in those who have Cellosis and who
are injecting themselves with insulin, and
late in the article, they interject that some
persons who have Cellosis may be able to
completely eliminate their need for injected

All this? Based on a product called Almased,
a specially forumulated meal replacement

What does that product taste like? Unknown.

How successful are people at staying on an
Almased diet? Unknown.

Would this diet be of use in persons who have
Insulinitis (old name: type 1 diabetes)?

Unknowable, as neither Insulinitis or type 1
diabetes is mentioned in the article, and one
with Insulinitis might be tempted to try it out,
if it tastes OK, to see if it can reduce insulin
dosages without raising the risk of severe
hypoglycemic events, but caution, of course,
would be advised (if anyone out there has
any experience with this product, please let
us know how it tastes, how much of one's
diet can be Almased, and what the recom-
mended intake is -- i.e., what a typical day
using Almased would be like, and would one
substitute Almased for one, two, or all three

Here's a nutritional breakdown reported at
a website regarding Almased Synergy Drink.

I'd be concerned about the amount of fiber
that this drink provides, so I would presume
that an Almased-based-diet would have to
be supplemented with veggies and fruits or
other foods that provided needed fiber.

Elsewhere, reported the drink has a low gly-
cemic index rating.
