I have been liviing with Type 1 diabetes for 37 years. I have read and reviewed the multiple postings on this thread about reversing Type 1 to Type 2 diabetes as a consequence of taking a natural food product. I clearly understand the suspicions that people have about this assertion, particularly by those of us who have seen so many false assertions, claims, and theories throughout the years about "healing" this disease without actual medical intervention.
If "Reversed" is correct, that eating healthy foods is the answer, then let us all resolve to do so if we're not already doing so. Let's eat healthy and organic vegetables that are available from our local grocery stores and farmers' markets...no need to buy a "magic potion" in a bottle from the websites cited by "Reversed" in virtually all of his posts. By the way, promotion of commercial products on Juvenation is a violation of the terms, conditions, and rights of use that we all agreed to when we signed on to use Juvenation. "Reversed", I would encourage you to refrain from the promotion of commercial products on Juvenation. This is site abuse that will and shall be reported accordingly.
For all of those who wonder if such a claim is viable, I offer this: Anyone who has had Type 1 diabetes for 7-8 years as alleged, should be visiting their endocrinologist every 3 months. If someone with Type 1 diabetes is taking "other drugs" as claimed, it would be interesting to find out what those drugs are. By the way, insulin IS NOT a drug. Insulin is a hormone naturally produced by one's pancreas. In the case of Type 1 diabetes, the cells that produce this natural hormone are destroyed, and thus it becomes necessary to take insulin. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease. It is not preventable. It is not the result of foods eaten by individuals. If it is, then how can we explain the onset of Type 1 diabetes by infants at age 6 months?
Secondly, the only way that a qualified endocrinologist could conclude that one's disease moved from Type 1 to Type 2 is if a series of rather costly tests are conducted to show increases in C-Peptide levels before and after the "change" occurred. To convince me, "Reversed" would have to demonstrate those measured and quantified changes in their C-Peptide levels. And those changes would have to be sustained, not simply transient or temporary.
Furthermore, the fundamental question: To what extent, if any, did the intake of insulin by "Reversed" change as a result of this?
The list of questions and inquiries as to the validity of this claim could go on and on and on. But, I will not waste your nor my time any more.
"Reversed", I wish you well; however, I strongly urge you to refrain from using this site, a service to all of us living with this disease, as a forum for peddling products.
On the contrary...Juvenation is intended to be a forum for espousing the truth.
