I too am interested, since the informercial appears to be very scientific. However, if it is that good, why does the medical community not know about it?

To your question "why does the medical community not know about it?", the answers may be many.

 

1. They don't want their boats rocked. That is, they are doing well throwing palliative prescriptions at disorders they cannot control nor cure and they're happy raking in the dough that way. Though it doesn't help their patients, when those die, others will take their place.

 

2. They may know about it but a cure threatens their boats. See above.

 

3. Anything that purports to "cure" probably isn't going to work for everyone. Perhaps it won't even work for most, but it may work for many, and that's a blessing. For many, it might not work until they abandon the bad habits that put them in their state of disorder, i.e., type 2 diabetes is avoidable and 'curable' through better dietary habits. It takes work, personal discipline, and self control. Some people just can't imagine taking control of their lives, or don't want to, so perhaps no "cure" product would work for them because they continue the bad habits that brought on the disorder. However, for some others who exercise self-control and change their habits, it might help.

 

However, self control, the adoption of good dietary and exercise habits, and continual vigilence, might cure the problem without Gluco-sure.

How arrogant and obtuse! I am very physically fit and how dare you suggest that diabetics are fat lazy undisciplined slobs! I have a congenital pancriatic condition that makes me a diabetic. Try this on for size: Arrogant gum flapping, elitist, American redneck jerk. Unfortunately, there is no cure for your condition. And to suggest that it is a conspiracy amongst the medical community... Jeez. What's next in your book? Soylent Green? Maybe you should stick to that facts about what a suppliment or drug might do to HELP someone instead of spewing unfounded abhorent ill-will. Check your dress Suzy... your arrogance slip is showing!!!!

May I ask what it is that YOU are taking, so that I know to avoid it like the plague! I believe it is your "America-envy" that is showing, and no wonder. Despite our current lack of a leader, America still is the ONLY superpower. We always have been and always will be. Redneck? LOL. Hardly depictive of the actual concept of "elitist Americans." Who are we? Generally hailing from the New York City tri-state area, we are the ones who excel from academia and beyond. The global "summa cum laudes" if you will, with no apologies needed for any perceived arrogance due to our inherent superiority.

 

I trust I've made myself perfectly clear here, as you, Sir Clyde, were way out of line. I suggest you go off and find Bonnie and have yourself a jolly good day in, well, wherever it is that you come from. They don't breed them too cheery there, do they 'ol chap?

Yes, he is the hardest working president....at spending our money!!!  He is making another mess, not cleaning it up! If he is so Great, why is he still blaming his predecessors? If you hired someone that kept blameing everyone else, wouldn't you fire him? How is that Hope, Change working for you?? Small business are floundering, Job losses are high. How can you spend your way out of debt? The government is trying to control everything and everyone. They are supposed to protect us not dictate and mandate. Gluco-sure may work for some but may not work for everyone. When you try something and it does not work, you do not keep using it....Like our President, If it is not working out, stop using it.  The hope and change we need is getting him out of office! Try it if you get a bad reaction from it...Stop using it!!!!!

The medical Profession is not interested in natural things that help or prevent or cure because they are not able to make big bucks off them.  I have told my doctor many times of proven natural things and one Doctor told me he did not want to know what they were but to keep using them cause the worked when at the age of 53, two weeks after knee surgery I had full range of motion, no pain, and no swelling.  I had been rubbing a combination of naural oils, specifically blended for joints and pain,  into my knee three times a day. I did not take any pain medication, or anti inflamatory drugs ans had no physical therapy.

My husband uses Gluco Sure and his blood sugars are better.

I tried gluco sure and found it effective. The problem was that I was on automatic shipping. On the second month the money came out of my account and 3 weeks later I still did not have the product. I called to check, they said it had just been shipped, I did receive it the next day, but I had been out of it for awhile. They said this was in their perameters as far as shipping. So I decided to increase my order so I would not run out. So, now I was spending almost $80 per month. The next month the product again did not arrive. I waited since they had been so slow before. I never got the product even though they debited my account. I called them. They claimed it had been shipped. I never received it, so I canceled even though I think it is a good product, I cannot afford to pay for products I do not even receive.

The medical community knows about a lot of things that would benefit those of us on medication but they don't share it with us because it is not lucrative to do so.  No offense to physicians but their medical training focuses on prescribing meds and performing surgery.  Any treatment other than that goes against the very nature of their profession.  Diabetes is a huge profit making business for the medical community at larget.  Everyone benefits, physicians, pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies alike; everyone except the patients who are at their mercy. So, I say we need to do the independent research and find alternative (perhaps healthier) treatments for ourselves.

Hiya, If you know of a natural way to lower blood sugar then I would be very interesred. I am type 2 diabetes and take the equivalent of Amaryl tablets but since I have been on them my blood sugar and weight have continued to rise. I live in Spain and the language , especially for medical topics, is a big barrier for me.

Have you found out anything on Gluco-Sure?  I was reading an article from "Bottom-Line Secrets" about Gluco-Sure and thinking they would give me good advice only to find out they wanted to sale me Gluco-Sure.  I'm skeptical when anyone wants to sale me something but who knows.

hi-

i am a 57 year old, overweight woman, with diabetes that was being controlled by oral meds and diet since earlier this year. the highest my blood sugar has been is 279.

i decided to try gluco-sure and have been on it now for almost two weeks and i have to say i was sceptical, but hopeful and i am finding myself happily impressed!

my fasting blood sugar, with a good diet and no oral meds has been on the average, between 120 and 110. if i ate something i knew i shouldn't, i would take a couple  of glucophage before bed and it could be anywhere from 120 - 150.

on friday night i had tacos (corn tortillas) and oatmeal cookies (no meds) and it was 105 in the morning. last night i had apple pie with homemade ice cream and i took no meds - and to my surprise my fasting blood sugar was 101!

i realized it has been steadlily droppping in spite of "slip ups" on my diet for the past week or so. as well, my blood pressure which is a good, normal 120/75 is now 100-90/65-60.

my doctors are wondering what is going on and i told them i was taking gluco-sure and they said to keep doing it - it is obviously working!

so i would not hesitate to try it.

Let me answer that for you,  I am not associated with the company at all.  I am just someone who had diabetes.  After taking the product for almost 2 months now my blood sugar is normal.  I eat pretty much what I want with the excepton of sugar.  I try to stay away from it most of the time.  I use zylitol when baking my own pies instead of sugar, and make them only once in awhile.  I tried eating a regular piece of pie and to my surprise my blood sugar only went up 2 points.  I should also say that I use sprouted breads, and other things made with brown rice flour. I do not eat white flour at all.  I will never be without this product.  You can believe it or not, it works for me.

It really isn't necessary to be sarcastic. I haven't tried GlucoSure yet, but I plan to. Some things work and some don't. It depends on the individual. It might be necessary to try it for at least a month. Natural medicines take longer to respond.

 

I've had pretty good response with those companies who give a money back guarantee. I usually check on the internet to see if they are a good company first. I've used NorthStar Nutritionals for some time and they are really good about returning your money if it doesn't work for you. It may take about a month on your credit card to catch up, and while it may be a nuisance to return what is left of the unused product at least you can get your money back if it doesn't work. 

 

Not everything works, but I just return those. I just keep trying until I find a product that does. Everything isn't going to work for everyone. Neither do prescription meds, which I am doing my best to avoid. Also you do you have to correct your bad eating habits. Unfortunately, mine is a serious sweet tooth.

I started taking Glucosure as soon as I received it. Started taking one capsule along with a reduced dose of metformin/w glyburin (500 mg) two times a day. I din't see any changes the next day my numbers were 143 in the morning before breakfast. During a week or so I did't see results. I started to doubt about the product, but trying to keep my faith and feeling that it should work for me I just took the 2 capsules of this product for about 5 days w/out my metformin medicines. The results were really devastating with my numbers rising to 192. It's a big deception for me on The Health Science Institute who promoted the product and recommended it as the real answer to our worries about diabetis. I really feel bad about this because I had my hopes very high, I am a very enthusiast about natural supplements but this really got to me. I hope it really works for some people. Let me know of any new breaktrooughs that really will work

Whenever you try to add a natural diabetic supplement you still need to take your regular drugs for at a week or two before stopping them. Then you need to drop them slowly. For instance I stay on my metformin and cut my other pill in half for a few days.  If things are going well I drop the other half. Then I start taking away one metformin at a time untill I am off all 5 of my tablets.  In your case I would try cutting back to 1 1/2 tablets, then 1, etc.  It takes time for any new product to work. Even Rxs don't work in a couple of days.  Over the years I have tried several different products and most of them do show an improvement when I'm eating correctly and have slowly made the conversion.  I agree with the person that said that when she eats pie, ice cream etc., I do add back a metformin or 2 for a day or so until I'm back in control.

After trying glocusure wjthout my medicine (metformin) for four straight days and getting a whooping reading of 192 in the morning I really felt that this product really does'nt wor for me slowly I went back to my medicine and after three or four days it came dowm to 95 as of today. I must confess that I've taken some measures as to what I eat and not taken in any sweets. Even though this happen I really hope some day I'll find something natural that could help me with this desease. I've been reading some good info on this blog. Any information as to any new breakthrougs, plese let me know. I'm all up for defeating diabetis.  Thanks

I've been using dr's best agaricus blazei for about a week now, and have had suprisingly good results. I have been able to lower my insulin some, and my readings are in the normal range. If you try this stuff, get ready to feel like crap for a couple of days, with high glucose readings, but that gets better. Now I still have a slight upset stomach, but thats improving too.

  I read an ad for GlucoSure and it sure sounds tempting to me. I am on the verge of trying it. My question is this- does anyone know how to access the double blind studies they talk about? i'd like to read them. Sometimes the study is not as impressive as they make it sound- has a small sample size or short time span. I don't take medicines without knowing about the long term side effects. I would not want to be more naive with this. Please help.

I read the article on Gluco-sure BUT this website

http://www.herbsarespecial.com.au/free-sprout-information/so-good-sprouts.html   is UNREAL!  and doesn't COST A CENT!  - She does have a book and this book I should GET!

_________________________________

 

I am VERY WEARY buying online now!!!  I purchased a FREE trial of product of

Accai Berry & Colon Cleanse, and another Trial offer of Xtra Resveratrol ONLINE BUT then had several other MYSTERY debits come out of my credit card account that I DID NOT authorise!  (Read below)  I then had to file a bank complaint and fill out forms to TRY AND GET my money BACK!

 

I ordered the FREE trial of acai berry and Colon Cleanse and YES they do send you a FREE sample BUT charged for postage!! (8-1-2010) $9.15AU + the FREE trial postage Fee for Xtra Resveratrol was $2.19AU  

 

AND  (get this)!! The WEB COMPANY www.absolutescaiberry.com that advertised these TRIALS had a company name that was TOTALLY different to the actual company name that debited my credit card that company was called = YOUTH HEALTH ?!  

The web page ALSO indicated that a company called LB Cybernet entertainment UK (who I couldn't find in Directories at all) - was the company I would be ordering from?? 

On THE 2-2-2010 I WAS DEBITED MORE MONEY! $143.45 was withdrawn (TWICE) by ANOTHER company called NUSKIN P: 0011 65 68373363 (based in  Singapore) I did not recognise them and I had NOT recieved ANY further products (other than the FREE trials), so couldn't work out who was debiting me? I traked down  is was the acai berry & colon cleans so was able to CANCEL THAT BUT i still had the PRO BODY company debit for the SAME amount? I realised that was possibly the Xtra Resveratrol ongoing order but unlike NUSKIN, their was NO listing for PRO BODY at all with directories! so I am still working on that! -It said contact us at Rivington House, 82 Great Eastern Street LONDON but there is NO SUCH ADDRESS!

 

I discovered the fine print  said I would AUTOMATICALLY get another supply of these products each month (at their PRICE $Money mouth$) to go with the FREE trial! AND -

I had to call this singapore company called "NUSKIN"  phone number PH:0011 65 6837 3363   with my order number ON HAND (lucky I kept all the online info & knew my order number!) to cancell the ongoing Monthly supply!  I had to pay for the OVERSEAS ..STD phone call to CANCELL the auto mthly supply of course!

I was charged $2.15 for the Xtra Resveratrol and that FREE sample arrived but I also had to cancel the AUTO mthly supplies with that as well, the billing company on the email was LB Cybernet Entertainment LTD and the DEBITOR was YouthHealth? on the credit card with NUSKIN AND PRO-BODY then doing the $143.45 further debits on my credit card! 

 

I then found the exact same acai berry BRAND product in my local health food store, where I will be sure to get it,  from now on!!

 

 

____________________________

 

I also ordered the (Dr Wrights, starvation and Gym Free weight loss secret!) but when I got the digital download, I discovered that it involved daily injections over weeks and weeks!! I asked for a refund as I couldn't see myself dealing with that! -They said ok, but they didn't just want the order code and pub code and a email to cancel- NO...it was not enough - they also wanted to know, what were the full details I entered online at the time of the order?? as well (mind you it was electronic dowload NOT postal anyway?)- lucky I printed out what I had put down as my full details BEFORE I hit the ORDER button!

___________________________

 

I am quickly loosing ALL confidence in ordering ON-LINE at all with all these shark companies ruining it for the decent ones out there!

I think we have all been burned by these "Free Sample" ad's . I learned years ago to read the "Terms & Conditions" of these types of Ad's before ordering, and found out that most if not all, specify that you will get another shipment in 25 to 30 days from your initial order and you credit card will be charged the regular price.

  This is one area where we could use some Government controls.

Me too, very skeptical and tired of getting taken. I did get a suggestion on another site about the thing they say, to try it for a month and if you do not like it get money back or stop......well, I had the same experience with the acai thingy. The suggestion I got was, If you want to try this stuff, and they give you a month free etc, you know the drill. Well go down and get a prepaid Credit Card from the nearest store, and buy one for 30 or 40 bucks and that is all that is on the card, not traceable and when they go to charge you again......well not possible. I thought that was a darned good idea, they would not have a bank name or anything like that. I have not tried it yet but I am thinking of getting one to have on hand. I would buy a couple at about 25-50 each and have them on hand or the come ons......LOL   Just thought I would share that.

I had the same problem with the Acai Berry & Colon Cleanse ... had to get it removed through my bank, ugh Yell NIGHTMARE !!!


As for the injections for HCG...it is the tiniest needle on the market, like an insulin needle, & I didn't hardly feel it! The trick is to wait for the alcohol swab spot to dry first, before injecting! I got the prescription from my Dr & the pharmacy gives me a 1 month supply for under $40.00 & IT WORKS GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I could never lose weight before & I am losing like 6-10 lbs a week. Ask around at the hospitals, nurses & staff, they are living testimonials, losing large amounts of fat...lots of them have lost over 100 lbs. IT WORKS & IT IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

BTW there is an oral option, you might ask your pharmacist. Good Luck!!! Laughing

Please folks get real and READ all the fine print related to any ordering of "free" trial products. 

It is customary for the advertisers to charge you for shipping/handling and to place an "automatic" monthly charge usually of an exhoribitant price for the product you ordered UNLESS you notify them you intend to return or cancel your order WITHIN the stated refund timeframe which usually starts at the order date - not the product receive date.

It is also customary for the charge on your card to reflect a different name than the place where your order was placed as the ordering site is usually only a clearing site.

 

"Nothing" is for free - read the small print.

I recognize that this might seem like a viable solution however, it is a scam. In fact, I believe that their business practices may have legal gaps in disclosure. (...as I am not an atty.) Plan to speak with the ATTY GEN's office about it.

 

READ THE FINE PRINT!!!! It's like trying to cancel an AOL subscription. Had to have my bank restrict payment. Caveat emptor!!!!

 

My personal opinion is that this is not a viable alternative to treatment from your doctor- regardless what the snake oil sales people are pitching.

 

BTW- This crap never did anything for me. This is not the magic pill that this company is purporting. In fact, I believe that it is irresponsible for the mfg to gain market share by selling half baked results. The same poeple that support this suppliment also tie aspartame to a vast right wing conspiracy and Donald Rumsfeld. Really... look it up.

I've tried several of these so-called sugar solutions, including Gluco-Sure and Dr Whittaker's product with no luck at all. I've asked for my money back on both products, and I'm still waiting. I did try just plain old cinnamon capsules at 1000 mlg 3 times a day and they seem to be working. They're a lot cheaper too. Whittaker's product may work, but the green poop scared me.

Jerry, Hi. I see that you have already been on the journey of finding the correct products that "work". Assuming that you are diabetic, where have you obtained the most factual information about supplements, vitamins, herbs, etc.? Also, do you have any other suggestions in addition to the cinnamon? Your reply is very much appreciated.

Hi 

I have been on Dr. Whitaker's Glucose Essentials for a week and surprised to see my numbers drop quite a bit, 25% or more. Now, I also started Janeuvia, a pharmacutical, 2 months ago so that could also be doing it. Yet, until I started Glucose Essentials my numbers were higher. So I guess time will tell, and if the low  numbers continue I'll discontinue the pharma drug and see what happens. 

 

I am skeptical by nature so I'm taking a wait and see approach. 

Another sidebar is that I had been a bit run down, which normally causes my numbers to spike, instead they went down. So go figure.

 

The cost for 3 months was 64$, not bad.

My wife brought this stuff home and insisted I try it. Like a good boy I did! After two and a half weeks of being sicker than a dog and almost going to the emergency room one night, I put two and two together and stopped taking it. Within two days I started to feel better. After a week I am fine again. I just picked up the bottle and read it and found out that all my symptoms were right there. So good luck with them. And by the way my levels did not improve but went up!

Hi, I am not a doctor. I was on Januvia for about a year. I was taken off and later found out that there is a much larger incidence of heart attacks/heart problems in people with no heart issues with Januvia. I was put back on amaryl. I looked it up on several sites and found out this was correct. I don't want to scare you, but did want to pass the info along. Best of luck to you. I am thinking about trying the Glucose Essentials due to my sugar numbers staying too high.

It's not a scam. I've researched the clinical data you can get the results of it at

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00502008.

It was conducted by the National Institutes of Health in 2005 by

Principal Invstigator: Doctor Anura V. Kurpad MD, Phd St  John's Research Institute.

Dear Jairzinio:

 

First I want to express my gratitude for the information you provided. I read the trials and also found lots of information on

COCCINIA INDICA OR GENCINIA

 

I will order this product but from another source with a much lower price than Gluco-sure and Pay Pal to be safe.

I will post again in about 30 days or so.

Thanks again

I have taken this now for 6 months and I really like it.  You dont feel drug out and you can eat what ever, any way I can. It blocks the sugar.  I think it works great.  The longer I take it the better I feel. I am diabetic II.

Have heard good reports on Gluco-sure, better ones on Diatroxal by Syntratech.  It helps keep blood glucose levels under control and is available at many alternative health centers.  It's priced around $50 for 180 caplets.  Taken with meals, I have found I can reduce the amount of insulin I need for my Type I diabetes by 50%. I bet type II patients will see even more impressive benefit.

Hi, I realize this is a bit late, about a year, but I was just diagnosed and upon checking the side effects of Metformin HCL, I want to try an alternative option.  My Doctor is an Osteopath, he too likes healthy alternatives.  I'm running this one by him on Monday.  I have checked it all out and find that everything in the sales pitch is true.  I'm also passing this along to Swanson Vitamins, a little competition brings the price down.  So, I'm pretty sure my Dr. will agree when I present him with the facts, then he will research it also. 

 

As for you Type1 diabetics, it is my understanding that your pancrease doesn't work at all.  But there are good studies that say it is caused by a virus.  But, it has been a while since I researched Type 1 for a friend.  Getting off track, I don't beleive this will help with Type 1, but ask your doctor.  Research, get the facts, and present them to your Doctor.  If your Doctor is a good Physician he will consider this.  If he isn't interested in any alternative options, he isn't a good Physician, in my humble opinion, and you should look for another.  Many Doctors today are too tied to the Pharmaceutical companies and I believe get kickbacks for prescribing meds, especially the latest and greatest big money medication to come down the pike.

 

I don't know if any of this helps, but I'm glad to be a new part of this community, I just wish it were under different circumstances.

 

Take Care All,

Vezza =^..^=

Keep searching and reading about this mushroom extract. You will find that it is helpful in cancer treatment according to Memorial Sloan Ketterig HOWEVER there are cases of liver toxicity and DEATH from liver toxity in studies done on rats and in people with cancer taking the extract. But other studies show help in normalizing liver function in people with hepatitis B. Studies do seem to show blood sugar support and weight loss.

 

There are real clinical studies out there and there are cases of positive benefit and cases of possible death due to taking it, although the study of deaths does claim it cannot rule out other factors, but one person who died from liver toxicity improved aftre stopping taking it but went back on it and then got worse and died, indicating it probably was the mushroom extract.

 

I found standardized agaricus blazei for $14.99. Biotin and chromium are also easily and cheaply available from many quality vitamin companies. I do not know what Gluco-Sure costs, but you can probably buy the individual ingredients separately elsewhere. Many new, special formula supplements are packaging and promotion and sometimes MLM profits built into price. Always comparison shop and investigate any herbs or supplements thouroughly before deciding whether or not you want to put it in your body.

 

For me personally, this intrigued me but the liver risks are worrisome and I will investigate more before trying.

hello This is not the first time that biotin and chromium can be used to help in blood sugar. A question that still bothers me is what are the proper ammounts to take.?!

 

And is any brand of these products better than another. Does any one have an answer.?

 

Thank You

I've wanted ot try it as it was recommended that I try it by the natural doctor I hae been working with.  FYI, I've done a clean-out program, but need to get my liver and pancreas working right again.  I'll see if this posts and if it does, will comment more on the cleansing liver and pancreas programs that also include a colon cleanse that will get your body back on track.  The liver has to have time to heal as does the pancreas, but I've been wondering since I am an optimum candidate for having any supplement work better because of the cellular cleaning, if this would help the liver and pancreas repair and he blood sugar to be normal again.   I've read all the posts here and think I'll give it a try and post back in  month or two.  Probably the reason it might not work for some is that they may be low in the necessary nutrients to keep the body healthy.  Magnesium being one.  Calcium being the alkalinizing mineral of the body.  If these are low, it might be the reason this stuff won't work for some or becomes toxic if the liver can't take care of it.

Yell 

Case Nr1:Four years ago I read up on prostate problems because my regular GP (MD) suggested a biopsy (straight thru you know what!) possibly to be followed by surgery. This is when I came across the papers of Dr Cambell Douglass II (of Gluco-sure fame) and read about saw-palmetto. This, 2000+ year old palm fruit remedy cured me over a period of a few months of all my prostate problems and I am still fine 4 years later. I now use Dr C. Douglass recommended Ultimate Pro Support, rather than saw-palmetto, but that's just me. And yes I pee like a garden hose and if I have to go to the bathroom at night it is only once. 

 

Case Nr 2: My life style was all but healthy. My GP told me I was in "the range" of Type II diabetes. He suggested as a "precaution" to swallow some medicine, which I discovered were statins. I also needed to exercise and drop weight -the problem with statins is however that they make losing weight a real challenge.


Case nr 2 happened 3 years after the saw palmetto prostate supplement cure. The cured propelled me to take a real serious, indepth look into naturopathic (complementary) medicine and I knew by now where to look for knowledge about diabetes - again Dr Cambell Douglass II (et al) and Dr Mercola (and friends) were the first MDs that came to mind.

 

The success with saw-palmetto, had enticed me to take Dr Cambell Douglass' recommended Gluco-sure supplement, and take Dr Mercola's advice how to change my diet, cutting out all carbs and how to exercise properly. 

Result: I lost 68 lbs in 8 months and I am still coming down (slowly). I am now back at the clothes' size I was two and a half decades ago. And, as far as being "within" the "diabetic range" is concerned ... what diabetic range?

 

Please Note: Gluco-sure is a SUPPLEMENT, not a cure-all for diabetes. What it did for me was taking my weight down and that has a tremendous effect on your blood sugar. Excited by the weight results and increased energy, it got me to eat a leaner "healthy carb free" diet as well, and on my own accord I decided to take additional chromium, 200 Ug 1 daily. 

 

Reading all your blogging comments today I recognised the concerns many of us have and the assurance we seek. Does it help telling you that my wife and sister in law followed me in taking Gluco-sure, and eating a TASTY lean carb free diet and taking extra chromium to drop a lot of weight. Does it help telling you that it works for them, as it did for me... And that,.. by the way,..  my sister in law has got to the point now where her regular GP has dropped her diabetes II medicine.

 

When you read the Douglass, Mercola and (for instance) Healthiertalk.com websites you'll find hundreds of articles from hundreds of reknown research fellows and institutes, MDs and publicers UNATTACHED to any commercial organisation. This can't always be said of Big Pharma, Mainstream Medicine and the Food and Beverage Industry.

 

One last thing. I consider myself quite successful as an engineering-economist for World Bank and European Commission projects, world wide... but this year I decided to take an early retirement to go back to college and read for a BSc in clinical nutrition at CNM- CSU. I intend to practice complementary medicine side by side with colleagues practicing allopathic medicine (especially surgeons) - healing people by way of Gods natural pharmacy. I have experienced being cured from two deadly ills in a natural (supplemental) way. I am, 56 years old and looking forward to my studies and a new career - retiring at 65 seems to have become a big no, no...all of a sudden.

I have been pleasantly suprised with gluco-sure.I have tried other products,and for me this was the best combo.It does not mean you can go on with a high sugar intake,but as a controller ti works just fine.I also take a couple other suppliments,but you might find gluco-sure works for you also.

Anyone with a college-level statistics course can see the MANY flaws in the presentation.

 

The "study" is biased because the testers haver a vested interest in the outcome. Ethical problem.

 

The study needs 4 double blind groups:

1) who did not take the product, and did not exercize (control)

2) who did not take the product, AND exercized (control)

3) who took the product AND exercized

4) who took the product and DID NOT exercized

 

There would have to be an AVOVA to determine if there is a stastically significant (a precice math term ) difference in groups 3 and 4 than in the control groups. that was NOT mentioned.

 

There iis no mention of the number of participants; too few samples will skew the results.

 

While they did claim that their product did lower the A1C in patients, then failed to report the degree of reduction in either percentages or in average readings of the  pre and post trial tests

 

Of course their product is "not designed to treat, cure or whatever disease" (standard FDA-required disclaimer) but isn't the aim of reducing the rusullts of a medical test the same as practicing medicine?

 

Do you want better and faster results? Call me for free at 1-800-UR STUCK, and I will whisper sweet nothings in your ear, and you will get the same results. Please have your credit card handy when you call. The call is free, but the sweet nothings I whisper in your ear are not. Tongue out
