About Diabetes Free

Brought to you by Dr. David Pearson, Diabetes Free is a program that’s claimed to be “scientifically guaranteed” to help men and women permanently cure—not just reverse—their diabetes in as little as 14 days. The information contained in Diabetes Free is claimed to work for type I and type II diabetics, and because it treats the root cause of diabetes, to have helped more than 20,000 individuals to date.

In order to accomplish this, the information contained in Diabetes Free is claimed to focus on increasing the production of Insulin-Like Growth Factor (IGF) in your liver, which is claimed to be 100X more powerful than insulin, using special shakes. In addition to teaching you how to unlock this “sugar regulating powerhouse,” Diabetes Free is claimed to help repair your liver from the inside out, while being completely natural without any side effects.

You’re here because managing your diabetes is a huge hassle, as well as a big threat to your health. You’re also here to find out if Diabetes Free really can cure your diabetes, or if it’s just a bunch of sweetened marketing hype. Let’s take a look.

Can Insulin-Like Growth Factor (IGF) Help Cure Your Diabetes?

Quite simply, insulin-like growth factors “are proteins with high sequence similarity to insulin.” IGFs are expressed in two different types; IGF-1 and IGF-2.

As far as IGF’s role in treating diabetes, this article sums the situation up nicely: “Several companies have evaluated IGF-1 in clinical trials for a variety of indications, including type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS aka "Lou Gehrig's Disease"), severe burn injury and myotonic muscular dystrophy (MMD). Results of clinical trials evaluating the efficacy of IGF-1 in type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes showed great promise in reducing hemoglobin A1C levels, as well as daily insulin consumption. However, the sponsor, Genentech, discontinued the program due to an exacerbation of diabetic retinopathy in patients coupled with a shift in corporate focus towards oncology. Cephalon and Chiron conducted two pivotal clinical studies of IGF-1 for ALS, and although one study demonstrated efficacy, the second was equivocal, and the product has never been approved by the FDA.”

In layman’s terms, this simply means that there is some promising research showing that IGF-1 may have some therapeutic benefits for patients with diabetes, but there remains insufficient evidence that it can fully treat, reverse, or cure diabetes, as claimed by Diabetes Free.

Can Anything Cure Diabetes?

According to WebMD, there is no cure for diabetes, natural or otherwise. Plain and simple.

In fact, a Healthline article from October 2012 (long before Diabetes Free was on the market), claims to have specifically addressed whether or not a movement is ongoing by Big Pharma to cover up a cure for diabetes. This article even discusses Dr. Denise Faustman’s claim (also discussed in the Diabetes Free video) that she “approached pharmaceutical companies for funding, she was told "there wasn't enough money to be made in a cure that used an inexpensive, generically available vaccine."

Is It Possible to Naturally Increase IGF Production in Your Body?

To date, not a whole lot is medically understood about the relationship between foods and IGF production. However, we do know that IGF-1 and IGF-2 are both secreted by the liver, and some (although conflicting) research has given us a glimpse at possible answers. These include:

  • Protein derived from milk, fish and poultry, but not red meat (Giovannucci and coworkers, 2003)
  • Protein derived from red meat, fish, seafood and zinc (Larsson and coworkers, 2005)
  • Dietary fat, saturated fat and protein, but not carbohydrate (Heald and coworkers, 2003)
  • Milk, dairy products, calcium, carbohydrate and polyunsaturated fat (Gunnell and coworkers, 2003)
  • Human breast milk (Buyukkayhan and coworkers, 2003)

However, as noted in this article, as well as on the Harvard University website, excess IGFs may result in some serious health concerns, including that it can “significantly increase the risks of colorectal, breast, and prostate cancer.”

Will Diabetes Free Cure Your Diabetes?

Chopping to the point: Considering the fact that there is no cure for diabetes, the answer to this question is a resounding no. Can it at least help relieve some of the symptoms of your diabetes though? Without knowing exactly what kinds of information the Diabetes Free program contains, it’s difficult to say.

However, current research about the link between IGF and diabetes remains inconclusive. And in a worst-case scenario, increased IGF levels could actually cause some pretty serious health concerns.

With all of this in mind, we might recommend spending your hard-earned money on something other than Diabetes Free.

    I have been reading the reviews. Most people are missing the element that the book requires you to fast. The fasting does work to bring sugar levels back to normal. After following the suggested protocol and changing my diet - eradicating greasy and fatty foods - as recommended in the book, my type 2 diabetes is gone.

    I didn't see much difference in taking the pills they recommended. And the shake recipe that the book recommends is too complicated. But the revelation of fasting and diet totally worked for me. For that information alone, the book is worth it.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    I watched a video online. Seemed pretty informative to me, so I decided to order the book. They said that it would also include a book on diabetic feet, one on diabetic desserts, and one on proper breathing, including diabetes free.

    It also said if I order now it included free shipping. So I ended up paying their ten dollar shipping because I thought it was for shipping and handling on the three other books. I received the diabetes free book (nothing I didn't already basically know), but no other books. They sent me an email when my book arrived, and I asked where my other books were. That was two weeks ago, and there is still no reply.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I have read this book and was disappointed, no real cure at all. However, I have been using cannabis-infused coconut oil in my cooking and baking recipes in place of oil or butter.

    I have reduced my diabetes meds by over 50%, I have lost over 20kg without doing any exercise (I have chronic pain). The amount of cannabis I use is tiny, around 300mg day, less than 0.3 grams.

    I also use less opiates and benzos due to the nature of the medibles, it creates a flat line for lower pain instead of pain spikes. I urge to look up information for microdosing cannabis, or a recipe for infused oil if you have available trim or bud or even access to quality full plant extract or oil. Good luck on your journey.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Purchased the program but didn't send the shake

    This is by far the worst program put together. I've purchased this program and was offered the free sugar balance. I received the program but not the sugar balance. When I inquired, I was told that my card was declined for a zero amount purchase and was given the link to purchase it again, but I must pay this time.

    I'm disappointed because the program does not lay out a step by step plan and you have to figure it out by reading several books. Most of the information was copied from the diabetes website.

    Don't waste your money

    Not only is there a huge laundry list of supplements to purchase on top of the program, but my hemoglobin A1C actually increased by a small increment (.1%). Non the less, if something sounds too good to be true, it is. Although understandably, they prey upon people who are in a vulnerable state (or possibly a little overly optimistic). As for the foot care "miracle", all of it is common sense. Nothing your doctor or any other practitioner could not have told you (or you didn't already know). Waste of time, money, and effort.

    Diabetes Free by David Pearson

    • Seattle, WA,
    • Feb 5, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    Hi. I bought and tried David Pearson's Diabetes Free book a few months ago. I was being very careful to follow directions, exactly the way he strongly suggested. Before starting the diet plan, he recommends an Epsom salt-based liver cleanse, which I did according to his direction. Before the liver cleanse, my glucose levels where well in line with the test A1C and read around 6.5. I was on low doses of Glipizide and Metaformin two times per day. After the cleanse, my glucose levels are all over the world. I had to more than double my diabetic medications, and start on insulin. I am still having problems getting my glucose readings under control. Everything I eat sends my readings through the roof.

    To make a long story short, I regret ever trying the liver cleanse and strongly suggest that no one touch this plan with a 100 foot pole! It has destroyed my health. I tried to contact them for advice. They will not respond, even though they say they will within 24 hours. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this plan. I would give it a lower rating if I could. My rating would be negative 10. 

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      How can cleaning something in your body affect your levels? I find that hard to believe. I have been a diabetic for 17 years. I do cleanses all the time just for the sake fo my health, and that never happened to me. There has to be some other factor causing that, because that is not medically possible. The plan may or may not work, but your story is off here.

    Scam

    • Mexico,
    • Jul 18, 2015

    I went online, paid for the material. I did not get the material or a receipt sent to my email. Their only contact information is an email that is bogus, does not work. Also, the company that collects the money is ClickBank, some say that it is a red flag in itself. From ClickBank I did get an immediate refund.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
