I just watched the video (it's 2:21 am) and I think he's a snake oil salesman. He did not say what I wanted to hear. There seems to be no way to contact them without a purchase. Before I spend over $5, I have questions. Do there have answers?

Most people use and confuse the following information :

Diabeetes and Pre-Diabetes are not the same thing.
Pre-Diabetes can be cured, Diabetes cannot.

Most people by the time that they are examined and diagnosed are well beyond being Pre-diabetic.

Diabetes doesn't happen in stages, the two are not related but somewhat connected.

The fault lies with both the doctor and the patient in the explanation and acceptance of such and our desire as humans to want, and demand at times without the acceptance of fact and resposibility (the easy way out) !

I'd like to join the others who know that there is no cure for diabetes. I am a third generation diabetic and my wife is a diabetic. If there was a cure out there, I sure would like to know about it from my own physician. As far as My wife and I are concerned there are three things that will help you most with your diabetic condition, a good diabetic diet, exercise and weight loss.

Diabetes is not something that can be "cured". In fact, at my seminar the other night, the surgeon said several times "this surgery could help you get healthy and cure your diabetes"… he said it 2 or 3 times and I wanted to say something soo bad. Diabetes is manageable.. it is not curable.

BTW, after checking..i was very thankful to find out he is NOT my surgeon *whew!*

Maybe if we all yelled it loud enough at the top of our lungs everyone can hear us … Diabetes is not Cureable !

Kira_xo 2010-02-18 04:26:28 -0600 Report

Yea, needless to say it really bothered me. I kept giving the surgeon funny looks and looked at my husband like "this wack job has no clue what hes talking about" because my husband was like "wow really? you can be cured?" of course im like "sorry but no"…and i kinda think the surgeon saw me…cause then he said something along the lines of "if you've had diabetes for less than 3 years it's easier to cure and faster"…

So yeah. A certain surgeon needs to do his research before giving a room full of people false hope.

The jury is still out on that. There are trials going on right now in various countries on a surgical option (duodenal-jejunum bypass) for certain cases of type 2 which could potentially be a long term cure because it looks promising in the short term. Downside is no-one knows the long term effects of the surgery.

It was a lap band seminar. So it was a gastric bariatric surgeon who said it, not a surgeon who is testing a surgery out for diabetes.

kdroberts 2010-02-18 20:06:35 -0600 Report

The duodenal-jejunum bypass came out as a side effect of gastric bypass. Gastric bypass is unpredictable regarding diabetes but a decent number of people find that they can live, for a limited time at least, essentially diabetes free. Some people it has no affect on their diabetes and some non-diabetics have developed diabetes after surgery so it's kind of a throw a 6 to start and hope for the best kind of deal. So far it's the closest thing to a cure there is, not a cure yet but it has potential.

Kira_xo 2010-02-18 20:16:53 -0600 Report

I personally do not believe anyone with diabetes can be "cured" or diabetes free. I do think some people can manage their diabetes with out hte help of medicine..but as for diabetes free, I personally do not think so. Thats great that some people thought they were diabetes free, but I'd like to know what happens years down the road..when they think they are diabetes free and go back into old eating habits and such… odds are it will come back meaning they wernt diabetes free, they were more or less in diabetes remission. Science is coming a long way, but were not quite there yet.

I agree, that's why it's still being studied and will be for a long time. There will be cures someday and they will all have to start somewhere. I think the good data so far goes back 7 or 8 years and people have been able to do whatever they want with no blood sugar issues or complications. Not many people have been studied though. One study I read showed that within a week, with no other changes to diet or exercise all medications were dropped, fasting blood sugars on average dropped 55 points and within 90 days the average A1c dropped by almost 3%. Those are changes too dramatic to not see some potential and research further. It won't help everyone but will help a few.

Please take note of this :

The ad that you are reading is misleading.
Diabetes cannot be cured but Pre Diabetes can be, there is a difference between the two which you can find here :


Pre-diabetes is a common condition related to diabetes. In people with pre-diabetes, the blood sugar level is higher than normal but not high enough to be considered diabetic.

•Pre-diabetes increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes and of heart disease or stroke.

•Pre-diabetes can typically be reversed without insulin or medication by losing a modest amount of weight and increasing your physical activity. This weight loss can prevent, or at least delay, the onset of type 2 diabetes.

•An international expert committee of the American Diabetes Association redefined the criteria for pre-diabetes, lowering the blood sugar level cut-off point for pre-diabetes. Approximately 20% more adults are now believed to have this condition and may develop diabetes within 10 years if they do not exercise or maintain a healthy weight.

In my personal opinion, I wouldn't, not that I'm telling you not to, it's just that I am a firm believer in doing whatever is necessary, even if it's tough or it hurts.

I don't believe in " Miracle Cures, Quick Fixes or Over Night Success Stories."

It's your health, your condition and there are many non proven cures for everything on the market.
If you are going to be a statistic, be a positive one, hold onto your money !


Diabetes cannot be cured, it's a chronic illness meaning life long and you should be evaluated by proven representatives of the medical industry including specialist for your ailment or disorder.

Do your research thoroughly and ask many questions.

Remember the old saying " All that glitters isn't gold "
