This is the first day of my Liver cleanse. all seems to be going well, my blood sugar was 119 this am, I worked all day, mowing, planting, trimming, laundry and garage saleing. My pre-dinner blood glucose is 111, I took my usual 10 units of insulin. I feel great and I'm almost finished working for the day it's 5:17 pm.

I'm also using this colon cleanse:
I came across this amino acid and thought you all might like to hear about it.
(1)L-methionine is a protein amino acid.
"It is classified as an essential amino acid for humans and therefore must be supplied in the diet. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO), recommended daily L-methionine intake is 13 mg per kg or about one gram daily for adults. Actual intake is higher. This is principally derived from dietary proteins. Rich sources of L-methionine include cheeses, eggs, fish, meat and poultry. L-methionine is also found in fruits and vegetables, but not as abundantly. Small amounts of free L-methionine occur in vegetables, vegetable juices and fermented foods...It is effective as an antidote in some cases of acetaminophen poisoning...."
"L-methionine is an essential amino acid, meaning that it must be obtained through the diet in adequate quantities to meet the body's needs. L-methionine is used in the manufacture of taurine, which is an important amino acid for cardiac function as well as serving as a brain neurotransmitter. Deficiencies of L-methionine (which are found to be associated with a poor-quality dietary protein intake) can result in taurine, cysteine, and one-carbon metabolite deficiencies. Insufficiencies of methionine can result in poor synthesis of phosphatidyl choline and other phospholipids. These substances are essential for nervous system function, prevention of blood cell stickiness, and healthy liver function."

"L-methionine is an essential sulfur-containing amino acid that is soluble in water. It is a powerful antioxidant, assists in the breakdown of fats, and helps inactivate free radicals. Because it is an essential amino acid, it must be supplied in the diet."
L-Methionine a main ingredient in SAMe
Source Naturals SAMe is a stable, bioavailable form of S-adenosyl-L-methionine. These tablets are enteric coated and blister packed to prevent breakdown and inactivation of the ingredients.
Dozens of clinical studies have demonstrated that SAMe supports joint comfort, function and mobility in the spine, hips and knees. It is important to the joints because of its critical role in cartilage formation. Studies also show that SAMe helps support a positive outlook. It is able to cross the blood-brain barrier where it affects the synthesis and activation of various proteins, such as neurotransmitters.
SAMe is known as a "methyl donor." This means that it works by giving up a piece of itself (a methyl group consisting of one carbon and three hydrogen atoms) to other molecules. Methylation plays a part in many critical cellular functions. SAMe is present in every living cell in the body. However, levels of SAMe tend to decline with age.
