It's unfortunate that Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes are both called diabetes because they have two entirely different causes. Type 1 diabetics make no insulin whatsoever and are unable to clear glucose from the blood therefore are benefited by exogenous insulin. Type 2 diabetics make too much insulin which causes insulin resistance which results in high blood glucose but is treated the same T1D, exogenous insulin. Medicine is literally treating a disease caused by too much insulin by giving these people even more insulin. What a bunch of ****tards...

These people are not stupid. They are deviously and some devilishly evil. Profits to shareholders trump any good science so these CEOs and executives can rake in huge bonuses. Ignorance/stupidity can sometimes be forgiven - ethic/moral/scientific turpitude cannot.

Look at Nova Nordisk that has been around 90 years treating symptoms and not the cause. But even with their supposed altruistic mission statements it wasn't enough to stop them them from colluding to fix insulin prices with other insulin suppliers.

Of course they provide the drug for 'free' to the needy after stealing money from everyone else's pocket

Doing away with governmental and insurance sponsored plans for type II would also put a MAJOR and immediate dent in the profits of these robber barons - a secondary benefit of Karl's plan. We'd also have to make sure the cost of such drugs could not be deducted from taxes or the scam will find another way to pass the costs to the people. The drug makers would be forced to sell directly to public with a listed price equating to what the insurer's were paying to stay viable for the drug. If they refuse their clients that must use the drugs may die.

But we know clients don't have to die. Diet will fix this for most people - death by diabetes II is not an inevitable outcome (with proper diet) that so many groups want you to believe.That knowledge hurts profits too! Nothing like a game of Russian roulette with a .45 auto or a full chamber. The question is who pulls the trigger first especially when we know the other side can only bluff!

Cancelling or severely penalizing all governmental contracts for firms found conspiring would also help. I won't be holding my breath on that one though.

Both the pushers and the users can either CHANGE or DIE. The choice is their own initially. Wait too long and nature and the market will make the final calls.

It is your body. It's time you own it. It may not be a Ferrari but it is the only one you'll ever own. At least go for the options that give high mileage and best performance with what you have.
