Alternative Therapies and Explanations

Question from Atlanta, Georgia, USA:

I read that there is a new herbal cure for diabetes and the rights were bought by a Canadian company who will be marketing it. Is this true?

Answer:

Based on the information provided, I think that it is very unlikely indeed that this product is of therapeutic value for any type of diabetes except perhaps as a placebo. It is certainly not, nor does it claim to be, a cure.
