Are there alternative treatments to diabetes type 1 or 2?

Are there alternative treatments to diabetes type 1 or 2?

Depends: If you are talking about type2 diabetes then weight loss, healthy eating and exercise may get you to the point where u no longer need medicine (and u'll be healthier overall) some people however are beyond that and require Insulin to prevent the complications of diabetes. Don't believe any "alternative" med works unless you or your doctor note your sugars are well controlled. Many fake cures.

My son has a nf2 tumors in the spine. 1 of intramedullary c2. Please advice about alternative treatments to keep tumor growth.?

Beware: Junior needs to be treated at a major cancer center. Ask about gamma knife treatment. You will also be approached by cancer quacks offering "alternative medicines" and talking about conspiracies to suppress a cure. They will take your money and when their treatments fail, they will say it is because you ate GMO food or something. I hope it's possible to help your son. Best wishes.
