There are many Miracle Cures on the market for many ailments and illnesses, promoting hope and picking pockets clean of hard earned cash.

Morally wrong, but business nontheless, many companies pry on the unsuspecting, trusting and sometimes gullible consumer.

Sy Syms once said, " An educated consumer is our best customer, " and today you must be an educated consumer to avoid being short changed or ripped off.

This holds true for the consumer in all aspects of spending today, as diabetics we all want to be cured (there is no cure for diabetes, only management) but at what expense, your life ?

There is a product on the market that is targeting diabetics with it's undocumented and untested (USFDA) promises of controlling your glucose levels and curing diabetes.

This product " Glymetrol " is being advertised as a " Do all, cure all " for diabetics, as a consumer, please take note of this information :

Diabetes is caused by problems with the pancreas. Without a properly working pancreas, your body can't properly control your blood sugar levels. Let me say now that unregulated diabetes can be fatal. This is not something to mess around with. Some cases of diabetes can be controlled with changes in diet, and others require injections of insulin. With these careful measures, people affected by diabetes can live fairly normal lives; without them, they can die.

People with diabetes should be under the close care of a physician fully knowledgeable about their condition, their blood sugar levels, their diet, their weight, their insulin sensitivity and their medications.

No pill can replace your medical professional's education and expertise in caring for you medically.

Discard the miracle pills, potions and curealls no matter how tempting they may sound.
Maintain and control your diabetes with a plan devised by your health care professional and careful monitoring of your glucose level.

Well, MAYS, I don't have to worry about that, since I am Type 1 and on an insulin pump! Thinking about how serious Diabetes is, is very scary! I know there are probably people who will buy into these things hoping for a cure…And, like you said, there is no cure for Diabetes…I know that for me, without insulin, I would surely die! And, it is very hard to control it, it seems no matter what we do…It is so frustrating and scary…When I was first diagnosed, I was terrified. I just knew that I was going to die, that was the first thing that popped into my head…I have gotten better with accepting it, but a lot of the fears are still there…Thank goodness that I have a very supportive husband who helps to keep me calmed down when I get into one of my panic modes…LOL. He is very hands on, and studies everything now with regard to Diabetes! Thanks for the info… Sue

Your husband is truly a blessing !
Taking diabetes awareness to the next level by making it just as much a part of him as it is you. That's beautiful when a loved one becomes so much a part of you that they share your pain as though it's theirs.
Give him that extra squeeze when you hug him !

Yes Sue you are very lucky to have him.
My brither in law's wife is just the opposit. And what makes me mad is she is a diabetic too. His support comes from my wife and me, We try and help him as much as posible. In fact he had his leg amputated below the knee as his BSL's
were out of control. To top it off she says that she LOVE's him, well you know what I think of that. It's just a said situation. Dan
