Are Diabetes and Insulin Resistance Reversible? 

DIABETES...NOT A LIFE SENTENCE! THE MEDICAL PROFESSION WOULD have you believe that diabetes is permanent and only controlling your blood sugar with drugs or insulin will protect you from organ damage and death. But diabetic medication and insulin can actually increase your risk of getting a heart attack or dying.
