Diabetes “Management” is the term used by the medical establishment to refer to the practice of keeping a type 2 diabetic’s blood sugar numbers artificially low through the use of medications. The truth is Type 2 diabetes cannot be managed. This is why we put Diabetes “Management” in quotes – because there really is no such thing as diabetes “management”.
To be clear – we’re NOT saying diabetes medications do not lower blood sugar levels – they most certainly do. And we’re not saying that Type 2 diabetics should stop taking their medications. A diabetic should only stop taking their medications under the strict guidance of a physician.
However, what we are saying is that diabetes medications do not STOP the damage that diabetes does to the body. Diabetes is a progressive, degenerative disease. If you are taking diabetes mediations to “manage” your disease, you WILL slowly get worse over time. It’s inevitable.
It’s for this reason that diabetes is STILL the leading cause of amputation, neuropathy, blindness, kidney disease, heart disease & stroke. The vast majority of the millions of Type 2 diabetics who suffer these horrible complications are all taking their diabetes medications faithfully. Yet they still lose limbs, their eyesight, their kidneys and eventually their lives to this disease.
