This past week while watching the Blooming TV channel their headline "ticker" stated "90 year old vaccine may reverse diabetes". Have you heard this?

Background Info Hide
Have had type 2 for 15 years and am fighting to control it so any hope of a cure is welcome. Since this was on Bloomberg, I tend not to consider this a scam but am wary.

I believe this is being studied in Boston by a cutting edge researcher, Dr. Denise Faustman. It is thought to be able to help halt the autoimmune response which can cause diabetes, especially type 1 in many cases. There may be a long period before approval for such treatment, but hope is very much alive.
