I cannot help remembering a remark of De Casseres . It was over the wine in Mouquin's. Said he: "The profoundest instinct in man is to war against the truth; that is, against the Real. He shuns facts from his infancy. His life is a perpetual evasion. Miracle, chimera and to-morrow keep him alive. He lives on fiction and myth. It is the Lie that makes him free. Animals alone are given the privilege of lifting the veil of Isis; men dare not. The animal, awake, has no fictional escape from the Real because he has no imagination. Man, awake, is compelled to seek a perpetual escape into Hope, Belief, Fable, Art, God, Socialism, Immortality, Alcohol, Love. From Medusa-Truth he makes an appeal to Maya-Lie ."
Get your physician to evaluate you for insulin resistance and formulate a strategy for you to help treat it. Rheumatologists are not always the ideal doctors (no offense to any rheumatologist) to treat this as it is not really the focus of their specialty training. If they are uncomfortable or uninterested ask your internist, family doctor or an endocrinologist for assistance. These type of doctors can also help treat any accompanying lipid disorders that may arise in conjucntion with Churg Strauss Syndrome and prednisone or steroid administration.
