My husband has been dealing with throat cancer since 2001. He had radiation therapy in 2002. He did not quit smoking then and the radiation was a waste of time. He has now quit smoking and we are going to Boston for an advanced treatment from Dr. Zeitels. He continues to drink beer ( a great deal less than he did) and always complains how dry his throat is. Reading your letters I now understand why.
He has also been diagnosed with diabetes, but the medicine is controlling that.
Do you have any ideas how he can continue drinking beer but stay lubricated?
With current advances in stem cell research, it won’t be long before we can find a permanent cure for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. ,
