I'm 28 and I've been Type 1 diabetic for 23 years. I had a drug problem for about ten years, taking lots of coke and ecstasy. I had diabetic eye disease but it got cured from Laser therapy and a change in diet. I have kidney damage and they ache when I eat sugar or starch. I have cut out sugar and starches from my diet now, but the damage still remains. I am going to start longer periods of juice fasting now. I have already down three fasts at three days each. I don't look fat but I'm carrying a lot of fluid retention. I have an excellent diet but I can't seem to lose weight because it's toxins from my kidneys not working properly. I'm trying to quit smoking too. I live in Belfast, U.K.
