Table of Contents

This picture of an interview in the newspaper is getting shared on Social media.

Someone has captioned text on this picture and it seems he has written a summary of the interview.

That caption states “US doctors admit that hba1c should be in between 7 to 8 is normal

Because of that caption and a big headline about “Insulin scam” very few of us read the full interview.

US doctors admit that hba1c should be in between 7 to 8 is normal

If we consider 250 Blood glucose is normal then almost half of the Diabetics are no more diabetic.

So how true this is?

If you read the whole interview then you will understand that the news is about Type 2 Diabetics in India which are misdiagnosed and directly put on Insulin shots.

You can read the full article here:

Pushing diabetics to take insulin is a medical scam: Fiona Godlee

In this article nowhere mentioned that “250 sugar level is normal” or “hba1c should be in between 7 to 8 is normal“. She is only talking about Type 2 Diabetics who have directly put on Insulin without making changes in lifestyle and misdiagnosed cases”

Hba1c test or glycated hemoglobin test which test shows the average level of glucose in your blood for the past 3 months.

The main reason for Type 2 Diabetes is a lifestyle. (let’s keep family history aside)

Due to fewer activities, more junk food, more stress our chances of Type 2 diabetes increase.

Type 2 Diabetes can be controlled by lifestyle changes and in some cases can be reversed (totally of medicine).

Type 1 Diabetes is a condition in which your body doesn’t produce Insulin. A hormone that is responsible for lowering your blood sugar.

For Type 1 Diabetic Insulin is a life-saving drug. Without insulin, they cannot live.

Diabetes and complications

250 blood glucose is high. High blood sugar has various complications:

  1. Cardiovascular disease
  2. Nerve damage (neuropathy)
  3. Kidney damage (nephropathy)
  4. Eye damage (retinopathy)
  5. Foot damage
  6. Skin conditions
  7. Depression

After reading the above image as a Diabetic if you keep your blood glucose around 250 then you are surely welcoming these complications in your life.

So buddy here is my request to you.

Please never follow or Implement anything which you have read on Facebook or in WhatsApp message.

Indeed, all information gets online is not false. You should verify with professionals before implementing anything. Specifically, if you have already diagnosed with medical conditions.

The second request is please share this article so that more people know about this fake photo. This image is spreading like crazy throughout the internet.

Actually, I was going to share this as WhatsApp message because it got lengthy therefore I have to put it as a blog post.

Do you think, Insulin is a scam?

  1. I have been diagnosed by type 2 diabetes about 2 years back and my doc has reduced my medication to just 1/2 tablet of gptolio 25 mg and telecare AM.

  2. I was diabetic type 2 for 9 years from 2010 and always under control with medication. HbA1c between 6 and 7.
    In Oct. 2019, I changed my diet to keto. I am out of all types of medicines. No statins. I could reduce weight by 8 kg from 72 with height of 165 cm. My A1c has come down to 5.5 in Jan 2020 and to 5.2 in Feb 2020. I also adopt Intermittent Fasting of 16:8.
    Type 2 diabetes medication is a big scam. Insulin for it is a bigger scam. Statins are one more. Advice people with Type 2 Diabetes to consult the right doctor who advice dietary changes and help revering Insulin Resistance. It will take care of the Major health issues of CVD, BP, Diabetic related Kidney Disease etc.

    • Great to see that you have reversed your diabetes completely and congrats for getting off from medicines. Yes, with diet and fitness lifestyle you can manage diabetes easily.
      Medication are scam or not is a very controversial topic. At least for Type 1 diabetics, Insulin is a lifesaver. They can’t live without it!

      All the best for your further journey.
