Dr Diabetic Supply

Dr Diabetic Supply – Dr Fedon Lindberg, a Norwegian endocrinologist, who has treated more than 18,000 diabetic patients in his four clinics in his home country, is one of the leading proponents of new dietary approach in treating diabetics, has this to say – “My experience with type 2 diabetic patients is that a balanced low-glycaemic diet coupled with a healthy lifestyle can reverse the disease”. No doubt this is a natural cure for diabetes.
