    Someone told me that cactus juice can do miracles such as cure cancer and reverse type 1 diabetes. I argued that that would be impossible, at least diabetes wise.
    But what if I am wrong. What do u think of it?

    P.s. Don't know what kind of cactus they were talking about. Just cactus.

    It's some idiot talking nonsense. Type 1 is incurable it cannot be reversed with anything, let alone cactus juice.

    This is either the best kept secret in the medical world or just wishful thinking.
    I'm sure if cactus juice could do as quoted then we would know it's name.
    That's a subtle way for me to answer your question.
    I could be more direct, but may receive an official mod warning for bad language.

    I thinks it's a perfectly natural question to ask upon diagnosis, it's one of those situations whereby I wish it wasn't me and I could be misdiagnosed. A friend tried to sell me aloe Vera to cure mine and my dad told me to have more cinnamon, sadly neither work, insulin for the time being is the only medication that works for me.

    Not a cure, but if you catch that little critter, it'd at least help out the low carbers!

    There are lots of "cures" on the Internet for Type 1 and they all have one thing in common. They're all utter tosh (using that word to be polite but there are better words out there).

    There will be a cure one day but currently there is no cure for Type 1 @metelskaya

    I know that when I was diagnosed, I had a number of people tell me about cures. They usually involved eating/not eating something, and every time someone mentioned something I'd get a little,spark,of hope. All proved to be completely false. Half the suggested cures stemmed from total ignorance of Type 1 and the other half stemmed from people trying to make money out of the desperate.

    When there's a real cure, we'll know about it.

    With all types of medical conditions (or disease's) there will be an exception to the rule, a rare occurrence ( but if they could bottle this for the future, I will have my purse out ready, willing and able :D)
