Imagine controlling&́#x80;avoiding&́#x80;reversing!&́#x80;the &́#x80;health hazard of the 21st century&́#x80; (World Health Organization), the disease that afflicts nearly 26 million Americans and is an imminent threat to an additional 80 million adults and children. That&́#x80;s exactly the promise of The Diabetes Reset by Dr. George King, research director and chief science officer at Harvard&́#x80;s Joslin Diabetes Center, the world&́#x80;s largest and most respected diabetes research center, synonymous with revolutionizing the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diabetes.

You can even reverse it&́#x80;effectively resetting your body&́#x80;s glucose metabolism for a long, healthy life.
