Hyperglycemia:  Too high a level of glucose (sugar) in the blood; a sign that diabetes is out of control. Many things can cause hyperglycemia. It occurs when the body does not have enough insulin or cannot use the insulin it does have to turn glucose into energy. ...

Diabetes is a side effect - of a chemical poisoning

"I'm convinced that metabolic features (changes in cholesterol and lipid profile, changes in glucose uptake and cell use, mitochondrial diseases and so on) are among main underestimated issue of 2-BE," says a French journalist

Metabolic syndrome:

"Metabolic syndrome is a group of abnormal test findings related to the body's metabolism. These findings include excess body fat (particularly abdominal obesity); elevated triglycerides, blood pressure, and fasting glucose; and low HDL cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol) . . ."


Did you know there was an autoimmune aspect to diabetes?  even type 2?  Immune system attacking insulin receptors (lef.org info)

Did you know there is an autoimmune aspect to type 2 diabetes also?

Insulin-resistant diabetes *

In diabetes mellitus, autoantibodies are formed against insulin receptors. Insulin receptor  * source

Overweight?   Maybe more than Diet and Exercise?

Maybe this is part of the autoimmune metabolic issues those exposed to 2-BE often have to deal with

The most commonly used glycol ether (which also has butyl in it) is Ethylene Glycol MonoButyl Ether

Why did I study 2-butoxyethanol?

"Pregnant women with diabetes are three to four times more likely to give birth to an infant with a birth defect than others"

40 kinds of birth defects found to be significantly more likely for infants born to diabetic women than other infants. CDC study 

That's because diabetes is generally a 'side effect' of butyl or 2-butoxyethanol exposure

When you see diabetes, suspect exposure to BUTYL or 2-butoxyethanol. Also suspect this chemical exposure for HELLP Syndrome that shows up during pregnancy or around the time of birth (Maybe the primary cause of post partum blues) Ask the study group if they also have short term memory loss and headaches

So for the 60-70% of birth defects that have no obvious cause, and especially for those with diabetes (an autoimmune hypothalamus issue) ... look to see if the parent or a grandparent has serious CFIDS, CFS, FM, ME. If so find the anemia that is much more serious than is realized: acquired, approaching autoimmune hemolytic anemia



A good research to check in cases of sudden onset diabetes after 'flu':

At 2.5 days after flu-like symptoms start up, see if the reticulocyte count is elevated.  Then the diabetes is the result of butyl exposure that caused the flu symptoms ... and diabetes a side effect - not the cause of the flu

Why FATIGUE?  "The elevated reticulocyte count would be peaking exactly 2.5 days after the exposure. That's crucial!  If you don't look at the right time, you'll never see it." Patricia P. Wilcox, M.S., M.P.H. (master of public health),

Glycol: any of a class of organic chemicals characterized by having separate two hydroxyl (-OH) groups, contribute to high water solubility, hygroscopicity and reactivity with many organic compounds, on usually linear and aliphatic carbon chain. The general formula is CnH2n(OH)2 or (CH2)n(OH)2

CFIDS Health Handout

Look Alike?

Do WWII Vets, Vietnam Vets, Korean Vets, Gulf war vets and civilians with CFIDS look alike?  Do they look like the Exxon Valdez oil spill 'bioremediation' workers?  Do they look like our soldiers who fight in wars today?

There is another chemical to suspect INSTEAD of AO. When it was sprayed in Vietnam it was diluted 50% with jet fuel so it would adhere to the foliage. AND in jet fuel is a pesticide. I suspect you should be blaming that pesticide. Probably butyl or 2-butoxyethanol


AO Doesn't cause all the harm that it gets blamed for



Sonia Sotomayor came down with juvenile diabetes at age 8 *

When I noticed the comments that Sonia Sotomayor came down with juvenile diabetes and then her dad, Juan Sotomayor, who was a tool and dye maker (manufacturing) died a year later at the age of 42, it made me suspect that glycol ether in some form of exposure would have caused both. (second hand solvent exposure for Sonia.) Also, that Pres Obama’s grandmother died of one of the cancers these chemicals would cause and she worked in a factory during WWII. Diabetes is a symptom of the harm glycol ether can cause. These chemicals are often showing up in war and in manufacturing especially. I suspect Senator Specter's health issues are similarly caused. Just treating a symptom (abnormal blood sugar) is not the kind of help we need.
