No one has to live with Diabetes Type 2 or take medications for it


Diabetes has already been reversed for over 20,000 people, it is the drug makers who hid the story.
The Anti Obesity drug makers and diabetes drug makers take in 10 billion$$$$ every year with no cure but you do not need their drugs.

There is no need for any “drug” for Type 2 Diabetes. The drugs cause direct heart attacks. Diabetes is being reversed without medications with a specialized diet
