Big Pharma is doubling the price of insulin in the US – here’s how to get the last laugh

In the last few years Big Pharma has doubled or tripled the already high price of insulin in the US. This price increase has no match in the rest of the world. The result is a situation where many patients have a hard time affording their medications.

Fortunately there’s a surprisingly simple solution, that can allow patients to get the last laugh.

If Big Pharma makes big dollars by overcharging on insulin, patients can reply by going low carb and perhaps also doing intermittent fasting. This can well reduce their need for insulin by around 30 to 70% (type 1 diabetes) or possibly even (type 2) allow them to stop needing insulin completely!

It can also reduce the need for many other chronic medications, like other diabetes or hypertension drugs. There’s a lot of money to be saved.


If you’re taking diabetes medications and want to start low carb, make sure to read this guide first:
