WARNING
RELATED TO L-NUTRA’S RECENT STUDIES ON DIABETES

Do not try to apply any type of fasting mimicking diet to treat either type 1 or type 2 diabetes alone or even with the help of a doctor.

The combination of the FMD and insulin but also other drugs could cause severe problems and even death.

Although the use of the FMD to treat either type 1 or 2 diabetes is promising, it must be first tested and proven effective in FDA clinical trials which will probably require hospitalisation during the treatment.
