Diabetes lies have proliferated over the internet. A recent survey showed that 90% of North Americans have fallen for false stories they have read or come across on social media platforms. Another 68% of the pool said that they didn’t trust large corporations and their government. Many large companies involved with the manufacture and sale of diabetes products may be involved in diabetes lies.
In 2009, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I had not been taking care of myself. As Director of Food and Beverage for a large resort, I was always busy. I found myself turning to cola drinks and other sweets made with refined sugar for a quick energy. One day after work, on the drive home, I began to crave sugar. I recall that day as if it was yesterday. It was June 25, 2009, the day the famed singer Michael Jackson died. I heard the announcement on my car radio.
When I was diagnosed, I was understandably upset. I didn’t want to accept what had happened to me. In desperation, I began to search for a cure. I turned to the internet. That was when I became exposed to how money makes people and corporations put profits first instead of honest business practices. They will lie to customers just to make a sale. I once met a U.S. business who told me that others operating in the same industry as he told him that if he were dishonest, he could make 10 times more money. Similarly, my acupuncture doctor told me that a couple of doctors in her field approached her asking her why she was charging $50 per session and not $80. They then demanded that she change her rate, but she refused.
Diabetes lies online
We know it is common for businesses to cheat the costumer. The diabetes industry is no different. Here are just some of the pitches I came across online, one of which was rather dangerous.
One individual claimed that he had a God-given gift of healing people and said that he had healed thousands of people. He included testimonials. His product for the cure of diabetes was cinnamon. He fortified his sales pitch by accusing diabetes drug manufacturers of being dishonest. I tried his cinnamon pills for several months. They did not work. It was then I learned that I had been lied to.
There is product called Banaba being marketed by a lady who claims she used it to help her husband cure his type 2 diabetes. She said her product would cure type 2 diabetes in one month. What I couldn’t understand was that there were three and four months supplies offered, and if the potential buyer would make a 6-months supply purchase, they would get a one-month supply free, in addition to a diet book for curing diabetes. Strange, considering the claim was for a cure after only one month.
I also came across an infomercial hosted by a well-known man named Hugh Dows. He use to host a TV Show called 20/20 so I trusted him. During the infomercial, which was for selling a book called Hidden Health of Treasures, the guest, who was referred to as doctor, said that the book contained all types of remedies and cures, including for diabetes. I rushed to order. When the book arrived, I could not wait to use the information to cure my diabetes. I searched for the chapter, but there was no such information in the book besides saying that a diabetic should drink bay leaf tea. It then said that bay leaf tea can be poisonous. The book gave a phone contact, so I called. The young lady who answered informed me that they had a list of all the conditions and diseases that the book has a remedy for. She put me on hold, came back, and informed me that the list did not include a cure for diabetes. Again, I was lied to.
Diabetes and corporate lies
My search continued, which led to a video I watched made by one, Dr. Joel Fuhrman. In his video, he said that diabetes drug manufacturers came to him and asked him to author an article on diabetes for publication. Upon completion, the drug companies rejected his article saying that if diabetics knew that they could cure their condition, they would stop buying diabetes drugs.
In 2016, with the assistance of doctors, I developed a diet, exercise, and supplement program that reversed and cured my type 2 diabetes. This was my direct evidence that type 2 diabetes can be cured. The method I developed that reversed and cured my type 2 diabetes was featured in the September 2016, WebMD Diabetes magazine, page 19. In my excitement, I reached out to Diabetes UK and the American Diabetes Association, which publishes Diabetes Forecast, an online magazine. In addition, I contacted the Canadian Diabetes Association, (now called Diabetes Canada), to share the good news that was published in WebMD. I wanted to contribute an article about how type 2 diabetes can be reversed and cured, but all of them declined.
Their rejection of my article for publication mirrors what Dr. Fuhrman said in his video (that is still available online) about the drug companies that refused to publish his article so that they could intentionally prevent diabetics from knowing that their condition can be cured.
If you are pre-diabetic, type 2 diabetic, or overweight, information you need to reverse and even cure your condition is now available at Just For Diabetics.
Facebook diabetes groups vary according to the manner in each moderator moderates and what they allow and don’t allow. Facebook diabetes groups that I have joined do not allow the selling of any products. Who can blame them? I can feel what they must be feeling. When I was diagnosed a type 2 diabetic in 2009, I found myself being approached by diabetes pill-peddlers. Some of these pill-peddlers claim that all a diabetic has to do is take their cinnamon pills, for instance. In my case, some claimed that a product they sold called Banaba—which has been used to cure diabetes in the Philippines—was all I needed and that I needed to get a six months’ supply would cure me.
Interestingly, they further said that if I were to make a one-year purchase up front, they would give me three bottles free, in addition to free recipe books. If it takes six months for their product to cure diabetes, then why were they trying to sell me a one-year supply? Others trying to take advantage of diabetics claimed that their calling on earth was to heal people. Let me tell you that cinnamon can never and will never reverse diabetes or help diabetics cure their condition. I learned that the hard, way not to mention being taken financially by a con artist who know absolutely nothing about diabetes.
Diabetes groups on Facebook
Diabetes groups on Facebook are very good to join. They provide support to each member who, otherwise, may not have anywhere to turn. They are also very helpful for those who become upset when they are diagnosed as type 2 diabetic, and for new members who have questions about being diabetic. Some people join a group because their spouse has been diagnosed and they want a support base to turn to and gather information in order to help their spouse.
I myself had to work with doctors and eventually, through research, I was able to develop a three-part formula that reversed my type diabetes in weeks. There are other publications by researchers from top universities showing they have found that type 2 diabetes can be reversed and cured. Somehow this information is not reaching those who need it the most—diabetics.
There are a number of diabetes groups. Before you join one, read their policies and decide if they are a good fit for you. What type of questions can you ask? You can ask questions related to your diabetes or that of loved one; for example, your spouse. I caution, though, that you should be aware that you will likely not be asking questions to a medical doctor or a diabetes cure expert. You will be asking your questions to members of the group who are also diabetics. As a new member—or an established member— you can also respond to comments and give your support to other members.
I hope you find this article helpful.

About Diabetes Canada
Diabetes Canada is a member of the International Diabetes Federation, whose mission is “Promoting diabetes care, prevention and a cure worldwide”. On the other hand, Diabetes Canada does not promote diabetes care and a cure. It promotes managing diabetes. In 2009, Diabetes Canada stated on their website that a blood glucose level of 7 millimoles per liter (mmol/L) was a good level. Now they have changed that number to 5. That means, what they are saying is that if your blood glucose level is above 5 mmol/L, you need diabetes drugs to manage your blood glucose level.
It is very interesting that when Diabetes Canada first changed their name to Diabetes Canada, in a TV ad, they targeted people in their thirties asking them to go and get a blood glucose test. Yet, many of these people did not have type 2 diabetes, which generally affects people in their mid-forties.
Why did the Diabetes Canada ad target young men and women? Was it so that, if their blood sugar level tested over 5 (mmol/L), they would be considered diabetic and would have to take diabetes drugs? Was changing the starting point for considering someone diabetic changed from 7 mmol/L and above to 5 mmol/L to increase the number of people who depend on diabetes drugs, thus increasing the customer base for the pharmaceutical companies? If the intent was to help sell you drugs manufactured by their sponsors, the pharmaceutical companies, then isn’t it clear who are they serving?
Type 2 Diabetes On The Increase
Type 2 diabetes is mainly on the increase due to two causes:
- Lifestyle choices that make people diabetic. As one doctor I interviewed for the book Diabetic’s Journey said, “They depend on modern medicine to cure themselves when all they have to do is eat moderately and exercise—and 90% of their diseases will be cured or prevented, including type 2 diabetes, heart attack, and stroke.”
- Lack of correct information. The most misleading information about pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes (both which do not require manual insulin injections), is that these conditions should be managed using pharmaceutical drugs. But the purpose of these drugs is to allow the diabetic to continue to eat refined sugar, which is the leading cause of pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes, as discovered by Dr. Sanjay Basu PhD, an epidemiologist at Stanford University.
Evidence of a cure for type 2 diabetes: On March 16, 2017, it was reported that a research study headed by Dr. Natalia McInnes of McMaster University, Ontario, Canada, concluded that: “Type 2 diabetes can be reversed in just four months by cutting calories, exercising, and keeping glucose under control.”
Type 2 diabetes is managed through the use of prescription drugs. Managing diabetes in this manner has allowed the condition—which can be reversed—to proliferate worldwide. Managing your diabetes means you will always remain a diabetic. While managing diabetes, we invite you to take control of your health and try the program being offered from this website at a fraction of what medical professionals charge. Notably, our formula was featured on WebMD (as mentioned on our Home Page) to give you an assurance that our program works.
