Default NPR... T2 is curable

Listen to this WBURs "Here and Now" radio show implys T2 is curable
the whole show is 7:45 seconds, but the worst is in the first 17 seconds.

Per your request, this is the reply I left at their web site..

"As a newly diagnosed T-2'r, I too agree with what Chris Schuch wrote above. It's hard enough living with the big "D" (and everything we need to do to try to control it).. but with additional misinformation being passed around, it only makes it that much harder.

It would be a lot better (from our perspective), if people would get their facts right before disseminating false and misleading information about T-2."

Good post Breeze, Thanks! The problem is that many Type 2's who read that link will believe it and buy into it. That is how scammers make their money. The artificial pancreas is not a scam, but claiming it will cure diabetes is certainly a scam.

The other problem is that a lot of people with type 1 believe this too and think that people with tyep 2 can cure or reverse their diabetes.

This is just one of the many thousand people who think is a cure.
