The munchies cause the dia-beatus. Better eat more Quaker oatmeal to offset it.

There had been a cannabinoid antagonist under development several years back as a weight loss drug. IIRC studies showed it averaged causing 15 lbs weight loss, and significantly reduced rates of cigarette and alcohol consumption. But it had side effects - mainly psychiatric I think - sufficient that the FDA didn’t approve it. I don’t recall reading anything about diabetes rates and it. I wonder if there is any valid scientific data on the incidence of type I diabetes in pot smokers?

Insulin Pumps Better Than Injections for Kids With Type 1 Diabetes: Study

One Step Forward for DIY Health Care (Walter Russell Mead)

"The nucleotide-binding domain leucine-rich repeat (NLR)-containing family of pattern recognition receptors includes several proteins that drive inflammation in response to a wide variety of molecular patterns," appears to be involved with the inflammatory response and the innate immune system, much like magrophages. This NIH report about endocannabinoid receptors might explain how type 2 diabetics become insulin dependent.

FReepmail me if you want on or off the diabetes ping list.
