I came upon this on a website and it was really interesting to read, has anyone else heard of this and do you think it will eventually be used for treatment?

Looks promising, however it has only been used on mice and unfortunately a mouse is not just a small. furry human so there are several hurdles to be overcome until it is used on a human test subject. . It would be great if it worked as promised!

All people with more intelligence than I..God bless them…I find the fact that it has proven effective in correcting insulin sensitivity to be much more promising than it's effect on BG levels…Insulin sensitivity is the root cause of type 2..and frankly I am not a happy camper that most medications deal with controlling BG levels and NOT insulin sensitivity…I equate that to a person going to the doctor because of a high fever, the doctor telling him he has an infection and sending him home with just Tylenol…he is treating the symptom of the infection..but NOT the root cause of the symptom

iLooks promising. Do you think in our lifetime? It always takes so long to get approval on these things.
