Raviraj Prakashabhai Thakrar is a member of Juvenile Diabetic Foundation, Rajkot; like other Rajkot based Insulin Dependent Diabetic Children who takes Insulin twice a day by Injections. He is a member of more than 175 Diabetic yahoo Groups consisting more than 19,000 Diabetic/Scientists/Researches/Heads of Diabetes Research Centers of their Countries all over the world including U.K., U.S.A. & Egypt. He; through internet; regularly receives latest research papers by which; he knows very well that till date; Diabetes Type - 1 (Insulin Dependant) is not curable; only controllable. These entire diabetic have to compulsorily inject their daily dose of Insulin regularly. By injecting insulin in their body daily; they are not going to be free of this disease; they can only regulate their blood Glucose Level for maximum 24 hours only. There is no medicine, which can cure such type of diabetic all over the world. No O.H.A. (Oral Hypoglycemic Agent), no medicine, which can be swallowed by mouth, is effective in this disease. Vice President, American Diabetes Association certifies this fact and an e-mail print out is exists with father of the diabetic child. In conclusion, we can say that "Diabetes Type 1 is not curable; only controllable"; till date.

We must praise the courage of the diabetic child for the fact that before competiting all the Championships on various days of Competitions; he took his regular dosage of Insulin by injection himself & used his Pneumatic Air Rifle for constantly 1 hour 15 minutes in single standing position as per the National Rules & won the Gold, Silver & Bronze Medals in ".177 Open Sight Air Rifle Sub Junior Men Individual".

The diabetic child, as advised by his doctor, records himself his Urine Blood Sugar through Ketodiastic daily 3 to 5 times. He takes his daily dosage of Insulin (30 Units a day) by Injection at 12:50 p.m. & 7:30pm daily.

There is a humble appeal of father of the diabetic child, Shri Prakashbhai Thakrar, to all of you to send any information related to remedy of Type 1 diabetes by which he either can stop daily injections or reduce the daily dosage of Insulin to his son.
