Jason Fung: The Biggest Lie – T2D 2
There are many things untruths said about type 2 diabetes (T2D) but the biggest lie of them all is this: T2D is a chronic and progressive disease. This message has been spread so far and wide and repeated so often that people do not even perceive that there is any controversy. Of course it is true. Everybody says so. If you develop T2D, you will have it for life. It will get worse and then you’ll go blind. You will soon be on insulin, get used to it!
In fact, the ‘authorities’ all agree. They have been one of the loudest voices proclaiming T2D a chronic, progressive disease. You had T2D, you can’t get better so don’t even try! It is on the website of the American Diabetes Association and others such as diabetes australia.
