    Yes, it's true. We already have the cure for type 2: intermittent fasting and a low carb diet. Also, cancer cells feed off of sugar. But all that is free. There's no money to be had there.

    There is a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, a Pancreas Transplant. I understand that it is fairly successful but often it includes a Kidney Transplant too. I don't know if many insurance companies would approve it.

    But, I think your point is very valid about the economics of treating the symptoms not the emphasis on a cure.

    Don't get me started on big Pharma. That boat I am sending out to shark infested waters to be sunk with Lawyers, politicians, and insurance companies, has more then enough space for big Pharma.

    My rule of thumb is that folks with diabetes need to do what work for THEM.
    For me personally, I cannot fast, period. When I don't eat, my blood sugar continues to elevate until I give in and eat. That being said, my body tends to be weird.

    I think it is also important to realize that not all people became diabetic for the same reasons. Far too many people believe that folks are diabetic (type 2) due to obesity.

    Although the parts about obesity in this video do not apply to me, this video made all the difference in the word for me.



    I do live a KETO lifestyle and have for more than a few years now.

    This is a video I made for a diabetes forum that I work with. It is the basics of what I do.



    Just my 2 cents...

    P.S. I don't call it a CURE for diabetes. A cure would indicate I could go back to eating whatever the heck I want, and that is simply not the cases. (Just semantics, I know.) For me it is simply about having 100% control of my diabetes.

    Cricket,

    Do you find that drinking generous amounts of water and moderate exercise while fasting brings your Blood Sugar down?

    While I have seen that work for some diabetics, that does not work for me personally.

    P.S. I don't live a KETO lifestyle for weight loss. It is simply what happens to work to control my numbers.

    A couple comments …..
    I eat a Keto diet staying under 30 carbs a day. It works for my weight control and blood sugar.

    I thought we banned Cricket, is her time in the penalty box up already?
