I am new to the site but my 14 year old son was diagnosed with Type I last summer and is still in what they call "the honeymoon period". If I can help him overcome this while his Pancreas is still making some insulin I'd like to learn more. But he does not need to lose any weight (he's 5'8" and 140 pounds which is perfect for his height). What about this parasite cleanse, does it truly work and is it safe for someone of his age, and what exactly is it? Sorry for all the questions but this is all new to me.
