While it isn’t curable, the risk of complications can be greatly reduced with the McDougall Program. Type-2 diabetes is caused by the rich Western diet; medication is not required and is usually inadvisable. The McDougall Program cures this form of diabetes by correcting the malnutrition with a plant-food based diet and exercise.
