Have you heard about the reversing diabetes guide that Reader's Digest is publishing in May? I have always trusted the information that I received from the Reader's Digest for the most part. But when I saw this I got a little bit riled up. We have had this discussion here on Diabetic Connect before about the fact that there is no cure for diabetes. Although there are ways to control it, it is in no way reversable.
From what it looks like the information is probably accurate, but their choice of words is just bad. People tend to get a little upset when they are told that a disease that they have been battling for years can be reversed if they just try harder. I am one of those people. Many of us here on DC are trying everything that we can to keep our diabetes under control, so it is no one's place to tell us that we can reverse our disease by just doing better.
Here is a link to one of the many bloggers that has decided to make our view known.
Let us know your thoughts on the subject and what you think needs to be done about it.
