I came across a discussion from 2010 about PIVIT. I have participated in the PIVIT clinical trial for a little over a year now.
It works!!! I had been nearly bedridden for years, painful neuropathy kept me off my feet. I was on heavy duty pain medication, pain management, etc. I took ambulance rides to the ER, unconcious from low sugars, on a regular basis.
I had not driven a car in six years, I feared passing out at the wheel. My sugars remained irratic, no matter what we tried for 30 years. In Feburary 2010, I was told I would have to start dialysis with in months.
I started PIVIT in January 2010. I have had to come to another state to participate. Here, I live alone, scary, at first. I live independently, drive my car anywhere. My A1c is down, my creatnine is 1.3— A okay. My energy is up, I bought a bicycle, I ride through the neighborhood, when it is not raining. I walk
1 to 3 miles a day. I no longer loose sleep to neuropathy. I got off my heavy duty pain meds last May (2011). Pivit also has a good effect on blood pressure. I cae here on three Blood Pressure medicines, I got off two of them over the past year. I came here is a size misses 14-16, I am now a size 6. Without the constant pain I can exercise, lost over 20 pounds, muscle tone greatly improved.
There are no negative side effects. The only problem I can see with PIVIT is
insurance and medicare does not cover it. If I was not on PIVIT I would now be on dialysis, with no quality of life. Dialysis costs between $80,000 to $250,000 per patient per year. PIVIT projected costs pppy is $40,000.
The only other problem with PIVIT is, I am enjoying life again, but, I am 1500 miles away from my family, who I have seem 4 times in the past year.
I know, if it sounds too good to be true, it . . . I can speak only for myself, it has changed my life.
I now face a turning point. We are not in a financial position for me to continue living a new life. I will be moving home in March 2012.
Research this therapy for yourself. I can direct you to articles or they call the same treatment by many different names, PIVIT, PIT, CAT, CIIT, MAT. Look them up.
If your quality of life is suffering from diabetic complications, including renal failure, retinopathy, neuropathy, hypoglycemic unawareness, etc, it is well worth the 4 hours of treatment, once a week.
Some insurances do cover it. There are clinics in Georgia and Alabama.
