Re: [IP] Another Newspaper Article

There is absolutely no evidence that one can be totally cured of diabetes
with weight control and exercise. It makes a big difference  with the amount
of insulin or meds you need but I DO NOT KNOW ANYONE WHO IS SO CALLED CURED
FROM EXERCISE.  I asked my Doc this question once and he told me no promises
, he said it was like being half pregnant. YOU CAN NOT BE PARTIALLY DIABETIC
