Why Can't Doctors Cure Diabetes?
T2D PART 8. It might surprise you to know that diabetes has been diagnosed as a disease since 1550 B. C. And yet we still aren’t close to finding a cure. Type 1 is well controlled with insulin, but the drugs we use for Type 2 are completely ineffective.
Insulin was discovered almost 100 years ago and we were certainly better off with T2D before that. So what perpetuates this disease that has affected over half the population of the United States in some form? The answer will amaze you and quite frankly is truly disgusting.
