Don’t Fall Victim to Diabetes Scams

diabetes scamsBeing diagnosed with diabetes is a scary thing for anyone. There are questions and concerns that you want answers to; although speaking with your doctor can bring a little relief, you are still trying to find a way to beat it. Although doing some research on the internet may be able to help you find the deeper answers to your questions, it is important to know that many of the medications you may read about are either false or the claims of being able to “cure” diabetes are leading you down a wrong path. They may be looking to just take your money and run.

One of the many things that you may read about is a vitamin called Glymetrol. It is advertised to be able to control your blood sugar naturally and to increase your sensitivity to insulin. However if you do your research, you are going to find that this vitamin has not been regulated by the government and that there have not been any trials of study. You may also read that drinking hydrogen peroxide is a way that you can manage your blood sugar levels as well. It is important to keep in mind that although this is a great medicine for what is wrong on the outside of your body, it is not a good idea to drink it and your digestive tract can be damaged.

You may have read from time to time that magnets have healing properties and are great for helping the flow of blood in your legs and for healing diabetic neuropathy. The magnets are supposed to be placed in your shoes for them to work. There is no proof that magnets are able to heal diabetes in any way. Of course there are all types of alternative treatments that are online as well and this could not only end up costing you money, but they can also hurt your health. Yes natural herbs are great and certain juices as well but, they have not been proven to cure your diabetes. You don’t want to jump the gun and take something that has not been tested.

While you are doing your research on ways to help your diabetes, knowing how to spot the scams that people are trying to take you with is vital. Look out for a program or information that is asking you for money. When someone is telling you that you need to pay for the product up front when there is no proof that it actually works is a no-no. You should make sure that there is plenty of research on the product that you are considering so you are not taking something that is experimental. If you read something that tells you to stop taking your medications or to add to your medications, speak with your doctor before making this rash decision. Stopping your medications can put your body into a tailspin and if you start taking something that does not mix with your current medication plan, you could end up sick, in the hospital, or worse.
