I think that's a good way to look at things. Though hopefully we won't have to wait 30 years. But there are many young people today living with diabetes, and if e push for one and get a cure within the next decade or two, plenty will still be at a fairly young age and able to enjoy the benefits of a cure-like lifestyle.

how many have looked at a raw vegan diet...? nothing cooked over 118*... when you heat food it changes the molecular structure of the food... (the difference between uncooked corn on the cob and high fructose corn syrup is HEAT...!
i have been on insulin for 46 years... with a RAW / Vegan diet i have reduced my insulin from 70 units per day to less then 30 units in 2 weeks... the glycemic index of vegies and fruit is really low when it is raw...
check out this link:

this is working for me.. i believe i can heal... all of the type 2 diabetics on this are cured... 2 of the type 1 diabetics no longer need insulin injections...
diabetes is your choice..! i choose not to be diabetic any more.. it's RAW /VEGAN for me...

I think it's great that a raw diet worked for you but I disagree completely that diabetes is a choice. I did not choose to get this disease at age 21 in college. Perhaps some type 2's can reverse it but I do not believe type 1s can reverse it completely with diet alone - yes, we can reduce the amount of insulin we take but I think the idea of using diet and no insulin is risky long-term and a raw diet is very hard to maintain longterm and for most people, not very appealing. Again, great that you can do it but I just don't think it's fair to say this disease is a choice, who would chose this?

Amen! When my daughter was dx'd at 6 they tested her insulin production. She was making none, nada, zip. At that point the told us that she would have a maximum of 3 days if she ever went off insulin. That is 3 days till she died. Definitely not a choice. And be careful who you tell that your raw diet is a cure. You may be responsible for killing someone.

hello.. i want to apologize for upsetting you..i just found out after 46 years of type 1 insulin dependance that my C-Peptide revealed that i am producing a very small amount of insulin.. not all type 1 do...again i stress testing often and adjusting as you always do...
i have asked to be removed from this site... didn't realize the hate mail that i would receive from people after giving my testimonial...i only wish you all the success that i have gotten from this..remember to test... robb

you asked, "who would choose this..?" i was born 46 years ago i was dxed at 13 months.. i believe if there is a possibility to self heal through a raw vegan diet it is worth it... the answer to your question is, ..those who won't try when there is a possibility ... every action you take in this life is a choice... much love.. robb

i want to let you know that i have asked to be removed from this site...i didn't realize that giving personal testimony was so dangerous.. i wish you all the best health..and a happy life..i apologize for my response to your using a LOL to describe how you viewed what i was trying to say...i felt threatened and didn't respond well..i only want the best for you... again..remember to test..test..test your blood sugars and live a long and healthy life... good bye for now.. robb
