I met a guy who gives massages who told me that there's a certain spot on t in a couple of weeks, I'd probably start to notice that my blood sugars will go down. Can this work? I am 13 years old with Type 1 diabetes.


Sounds like an interesting idea, but I'm unaware of any information that indicates that this is anything more than wishful thinking. It's probably something called the placebo effect.
