Wilderness Survival For Diabetics

The forum on the Jack Mounatin Bushcraft Network (our online social network) has been increasingly active lately. Someone recently posted a question about natural alternatives to insulin:

What happens if you are Insulin dependent and end up in a survival situation without Insulin. Is there anything you can do? Are there any natural forms of Insulin you can seek out in a real pinch?

I was a wilderness emergency medical technician for 7 years, but there was nothing about this in the training. Does anyone have any ideas, other than consult a physician?
