Q: It seems that diabetes is caused primarily by eating too many sugars and carbohydrates over the years. Can changing your diet reverse it?

A: I now have in the neighborhood of 40 or 50 patients who are no longer diabetic. I had them on HCG, a low-calorie program and supplements. It was a combination of the three, but if I had to put a No. 1 on the list it would be the weight loss… I had one patient with such bad diabetes that I didn’t know if I wanted to deal with it. She has lost 40 pounds and is no longer diabetic.
