Since AP is a mimicker of insulin, and ususally its stated you body will produce less while using it. Could AP in anyway push you towards having diabetes? I ask because I have a half sister and grandmother who are diabetic and that stuff creeps me out.
I couldnt find the info in the write up or in any random posts, even in the USPlabs sub forum

This is more or less speculation on my part but I would assume the opposite would happen. There are two types of diabetics; type 1 and type 2. With type one diabetes the pancreas does not secrete enough insulin to control blood glucose levels and therefore it must be supplied through an exogeneous source. type two diabetes occurs due to insulin resistance. This insulin resistance is caused by exessive spikes in blood glucose which are then followed by a spike of the same magnitude of insulin. These constant surges of insulin desensitize the cells to the point that more and more insulin is needed. Eventually there is a point where the pancreas cannot keep up with the body's demand for insulin and therefore exogeneuos insulin must be intriduced.
Anabolic pump seems to cause cells to become more sensitive to insulin and cause the pancreas to secrete less of this hormone. As you can see, this is essentially the opposite of what occurs with type 2 diabetes.
EDIT: and type 1 diabetes you are essentially born with, so no worries there.
EDIT2: I love AP

Anabolic Pump isn't an Insulin mimetic, so to speak. Its glucose regulatory capacity is part of a larger regulation of energy system as a whole - these same systems also mitigate the synthesis of cholesterol and triglycerides, lipogenesis, lipid hypertrophy, FA oxidation, and the expression of lipid binding proteins in adipose cells.
As the above poster said, this 'efficiency increase' in the manner in which your body transfers and expends energy would have the opposite effect of Diabetes. Both NIDDM and IDDM are diseases mischaracterized - ironically - in the same manner as Anabolic Pump: As being solely problematics of inefficient glucose disposal. In fact, both Anabolic Pump and these afflictions deal with energy turnover ratios throughout all cell types. Continually improving these ratios via Anabolic Pump would work away from NIDDM/IDDM, not towards them.
