Can one, with heroic approaches to diet and exercise, truly reverse type II diabetes or is the best one can do is to delay the inevitable horrible problems?

I estimate 30%, are able to reverse AOD with diet and exercise alone. Another 50% require diet, exercise and a range of nutrients which help overcome insulin resistance (the problem in AOD). Of the remaining 20%, 15% will reverse with all of the above plus IV EDTA chelation therapy. That leaves 5% and among those 5%, 4% will need to take an oral hypoglycemic agent. The remaining one out of 100 people is in trouble and will need to use insulin (which is a bad solution as hyperinsulinemia accounts for the serious health risks inherent in AOD). The "horrors" you mention are the result of insulin resistance and the response of the pancreas to that situation by producing more and more insulin. and one suffers from insulin toxicity. If insulin sensitivity is restored the complications therefore do not occur. You can ignore the standard dietary advice regarding diabetes. They have people eating refined carbs for God's sake, about the worst thing you can do. Also, do not consult a "dietician." These people are institutional quacks of the first order, knowing truly nothing accurate about nutrition. (Check out hospital menus - designed by "dieticians.")
