you can lose weight and cure diabetes without the meds. The American Diabetes Association teaches the wrong diet for a cure and pharma doesn't want a cure, they just want to endlessly treat for more profit. I cured my type two diabetes and high blood pressure by eating primal and the weight also just falls off. When we were told in the 70's to eat a low fat, high carb diet, that was a political decision, not a scientific one and it's resulted in an obese, ill population. We've been fooled about so many things.
