    Most drugs are produced by privately owned companies or are generically available. Also not a good way to make money...

    I would not be surprised if the government does have a cure. I am a type 1 diabetic and know how much the costs of everything is and it is just so expensive.

    there are natural products herbs out there for almost any ailment. God gave us all the tools we need to help ourselves. cinnamon controls blood sugar, for one. just have to search.

    If you want to know if it's curable, look no further than the nearest European country with socialized medicine. Most of my family still lives in a European country with Universal Healthcare. They receive excellent care at a small fraction of what we pay in the US, even considering the higher tax rate. If there were a cure for diabetes, they would definitely be cured rather than treated. R&D for new medications is subsidized by the taxpayers, medications are cheaper and the availability of cheap medications that are not available in the US for a wide range of ailments still does not include an outright cure for diabetes, let alone all cancers, HIV or any other such thing I've heard is curable, but withheld in the US for profit. That is a conspiracy theory that relies almost entirely on the willingness of some Americans to believe if it doesn't come from the US, it doesn't exist. Unless we're talking global conspiracies of course, but that's a "special" kind of conspiracy theorist right there.

    I believe there are many cures available that are not released for the simple fact that profits would decrease in the healthcare system. I also find it funny that they are so quick to give a medication for what ails us instead of recommending changes in diet. for example I was very iron deficient and was on injectable iron for the longest time, than I got tired of it so I researched foods high in iron and how to get enough a day; what do you know now I'm off of iron injections and have a more than sufficient amount in my bloodstream. No blood transfusions since. It seems they rather see you sick (and make money off of you) than well (making no profits).

    Governments have to fund medications for a portion of the population - elderly, disabled, welfare etc. Why on earth would they want to conceal cures? In Canada they think there are about 3,000,000 people with diabetes. Some of these people have private drug plan but many do not. With medications, needles, surgeries, amputations etc. the health costs are astronomical. With many more Americans their costs must multiply by 10. Forget it.

    There is a cure for absolutely everything, and it has been outlawed for the most part (A few states got it right, and Canada is getting there)... it is called Cannabidol. It is extracted from the marijuana plant, it does NOT get you high, it has NO SIDE EFFECTS and has been shown to outright CURE CANCER. Politicians are not for the people, Countries and governments are just giant corporations, with the sole purpose of creating a society entirely dependent on them.

    I wouldn't be surprised that there are many cures out there, but the money the pharmaceutical companies are making, along with governments and doctors outweigh the health and well being of patients.

    I wouldn't doubt it either. A cure would be bad business for drug industry. A very rich and powerful lobby that has many of our elected officials in it's pocket.

    Cannabis kills cancers. People don't look into it and believe what the government pharmaceutical companies, and media tell them like good little sheep. It can also treat diabetes, but idk anyone with it so i haven't looked more into it. Cannabis is close to a panacea.

    If the endocrine doctors don't know anything about thyroid, I'm sure people with diabetes aren't getting good treatment from them, either. If you have a disease do RESEARCH. Learn it. There is so much information out there. Become your own doctor. You are the only one who cares about your heath problems. Doctors look at you like you are a paycheck.

    Government conspiracy it is. I'm pretty sure they have one, but people with it will have to continue suffering with this horrid metabolism/pancreatic deficiency by pouring lots of money back into the system with each insulin purchase that costs an arm and leg.

    Lots of people who have gone raw (or have gone on the 'eat to live' plan) have claimed to cure their diabetes...look it up if it's of interest to you.
