Patients in a Nigerian hospital

The main misconception about Nigeria’s life-shortening diabetes is x-rayed by Dr. Isa Asah, said to be a Nigerian endocrinologist. As of today, according to unconfirmed sources, he is considered the best diabetes care specialist in the country. All celebrities with diabetes got out of their way to get a consultation from him. These include patients from France, Germany, Great Britain and other countries – they all go straight to him. He is one of the most important endocrinologists in the country. He’s written 32 scientific books, and there are 3 times as many scientific publications in journals in his professional arsenal. Dr. Isa Asah rarely gives interviews, but agreed to answer our correspondent’s questions. Below you will find important tips to help in your fight against diabetes.

Q: What is the most important thing when it comes to treating diabetes? Why do 95% of diabetics fail to cope with their diseases? When is it possible to cure diabetes completely?

A: Metformin is not what you need. As of today, metformin-based drugs are the basis of practically all treatment methods. However, this is a delusion shared by illiterate patients and doctors. Metformin is a straight path to illness and untimely death. This isn’t treatment. If you come to your doctor with type 2 diabetes and he prescribes treatment based on these drugs, run away from such a doctor immediately.

All of these drugs increase blood insulin to critical levels. With this amount of insulin, the blood becomes thick, like condensed milk. In large quantities, insulin causes colossal harm to the body. It literally destroys the liver, kidneys and other excretory organs. Insulin is similar in consistency and action to stomach acid. Imagine what would happen if stomach acid filled your internal organs. It would burn right through them!

Elevated insulin levels corrode cells, thereby contributing to their abnormal division, and this is already nothing less than oncology. For this reason, cancer develops in 28% of diabetics, as statistics show. Added to that, it is the high insulin content that leads to the rapid clogging of blood vessels with cholesterol plaques, since insulin-rich blood becomes thick and starts moving slower. As a result, blood vessels become clogged with cholesterol plaques, which in turn lead to pressure surges. Hypertension accompanies 98% of diabetics. Many other problems with the cardiovascular system appear as well.

Q: If metformin kills, why is it used?

A: Unfortunately, not many doctors today actually care about the health of their patients. I would even go as far as to say they couldn’t care less. They just do their job and get paid for it. They don’t care if you get well or not. That’s why without a second thought they prescribe whatever their superiors or the Ministry tells them to. And what they’re told to prescribe are metformin-based drugs, since their sale brings good profits. And it also provides an effect, albeit a temporary one.

Such indifference can’t cure diabetes. Patients, as a rule, do not know what consequences await them from the constant use of this drug, and doctors do not find it necessary to talk about it. Treating diabetes with chemically aggressive drugs should be illegal! But type 2 diabetes can be cured! All you need to do is choose the correct treatment method!

I often have patients who have been treated with metformin for several years. These are sick people, people who have aged far sooner than they should have. Still, most often, patients find out they have type 2 diabetes during a checkup. At the same time, up to that point, the patients, as a rule, felt fine and would never have thought that they had high blood sugar. And then they are prescribed metformin with an increased dosage.

As a result, the sugar levels drop, but over time, the person’s condition begins to gradually deteriorate. The patient begins to complain of chronic fatigue, obesity, high blood pressure, headaches. Their legs begin to swell, and in the morning so does their face. They feel like bells are constantly ringing in their ears. Fingers go numb and limbs grow cold. Eyesight falls. Their memory deteriorates.

The doctors say that it’s all because of diabetes. But in fact, it’s all because of insulin or rather, because of metformin which increases the production of hormones to abnormal levels.

However, do not think that you do not need to treat diabetes at all. If forced to choose between treating diabetes with metformin and not treating it at all, then, of course, you should pick the first option. Type 2 diabetes will kill you even earlier if left untreated.

Diabetes makes a person go blind forever. It is impossible to restore diabetes-damaged eyesight even with the help of laser correction, since retinal detachment occurs as a result of many hemorrhages. The kidneys get destroyed. Sugar just clogs up the ureters. The environment in the kidneys becomes incredibly sweet. Sugar is a preservative. It preserves the kidneys. Gradually they die. Chronic renal failure is just the tip of the iceberg. The kidneys can be lost completely.

The joints stop moving. Joint movement is provided by synovial fluid. When the vessels stop nourishing the joint, the synovial fluid is no longer secreted. The joint just dries up. As a result the person is forced to endure excruciating pain. Even painkillers do not help. The joint freezes completely. A person loses the ability to move independently.

The nervous system breaks down. The nerves, like many other organs, suffer from excess sugar. Over time, the diabetic develops psychoses, the person becomes emotionally unbalanced. They are often tormented by depression, nothing pleases them. They just want to lie down and die.

The skin begins to rot. First, it dries up a lot, scratches appear, followed by eczema and ulcers. The muscles and bones begin to rot and detach from the skin. A foul odor appears. This all leads to gangrene. No matter how you look at it diabetes is a very dangerous disease. Perhaps even the most dangerous. I am very sorry for people who are diagnosed with diabetes. I try to help them, but everything depends, first of all, on them.

Q: If metformin is out of the question, how do we treat diabetes? Take, for example, the average senior citizen who developed diabetes with age. Now their sugar levels are constantly rising. Let’s say they are taking metformin and are not feeling well. What can they do to cure the diabetes? Can they do it on their own?

Let me reiterate – type 2 diabetes is a complex, dangerous and systemic disease. This is not the common cold or a case of diarrhea. It is much more serious. The disease affects the entire body, and therefore treatment must also be systemic. It is insufficient and harmful to simply raise your insulin levels and be done with it. Diabetes treatment should be comprehensive and should be done only with drugs that, in addition to lowering the sugar levels, also ensure the safety of the rest of the body.

If we talk about specific drugs that people can use to treat diabetes on their own, then I would recommend a drug called Insulux. It was developed in 2015 by the Institute of Endocrinology of Nigeria. It isn’t random chemical elements like metformin, but a natural anti-diabetic complex which contains over 60 different active components. The drug contains all the vitamins, macro and micro elements most necessary for diabetics. Insulux contains 28 herbal extracts collected from different parts of the world.

Insulux is good because it does not harm the body. In fact, it even strengthens it. But most importantly, it has a positive effect on the disease from all sides. 60 active ingredients is a lot. No other drug in the world can boast such a rich composition. Insulux’s effectiveness is unprecedented! After we started recommending this remedy to our patients, the recovery percentage – and I mean total recovery from diabetes mellitus increased to 96%. This means that 96 out of 100 people say goodbye to their condition. Their sugar no longer rises and they feel great.

The main effect of Insulux is that it not only removes sugar from the blood and thus normalizes glucose levels. It also dissolves sugar, which has already penetrated the walls of blood vessels thanks to one of its ingredients – Ginkgo Biloba. It’s sort of like the blood vessel walls are thawed out and regain the ability to narrow and stretch. The blood clots get dissolved, the vessels are cleansed. Small capillaries are restored. As a result, the person’s pressure stops spiking, the weakness and drowsiness disappear, and wounds and cuts start to heal faster. In addition, the person just gets more energy. They immediately get the urge to do something around the house or in the garden.

Insulux does not raise insulin levels, so it is harmless. But in addition to that it also has a positive effect – namely, it reduces insulin resistance. This is a very remarkable property. The biologically active components of the drug penetrate directly into the cells of muscles, fat and liver and stimulate them in such a way that they begin to better respond to the presence of the hormone in the bloodstream. In medicine, this process is called “secondary cell education.” As a result, over time, the cells begin to consume glucose more actively, which leads to a decrease in its concentration in the blood. This is the safest way for the body to utilize glucose. Patients begin to feel great at any time of the day, including after meals. They are no longer thirsty. No more swelling, rashes or itching genitals. The constant bathroom breaks also stop.

Even heavily damaged skin is restored. Ulcers heal and the skin no longer festers and dries out. The same thing happens to the bones, their healthy composition is restored, they stop being brittle. Healing occurs in all tissues, the muscles become elastic. Insulux works like the flap of a butterfly’s wing which triggers a healing chain reaction that restores the internal organs and improves the overall well-being, from the healing of blood vessels to the restoration of eyesight and joints.

You wake up in the morning and just fly off your bed — you don’t need to force yourself to get up, kneading and rubbing your stiff legs, creaking your back and neck. From the very morning your body is full of energy and strength. All day. You sleep well and get enough of it. You feel rejuvenated. You don’t have to go to the toilet all the time at night. Nothing hurts or itches. Your menu will expand significantly. You will no longer need to follow a strict diet. You will remember the taste of those dishes that you currently can only dream of. No more low-carbon diet. You begin to enjoy the taste of your favorite food!

You no longer need to worry about your legs when going outside, walking is no longer an exhausting task, and you can walk or even jog all day without your legs getting tired or swollen. Sandals, shoes, socks do not bite into your swollen legs like a fork into a sausage. You are completely calm and relaxed. No more constant pain that consumes your mind, preventing you from focusing on anything else. When nothing hurts familiar things, sounds, smells play out in new, long-forgotten colors. Even severely damaged vision will begin to gradually recover. What used to be fuzzy will become clear. You can once again see the bus number from a distance. You can once again admire the beauty of nature. And most importantly, you will extend your life! At the same time, even in extreme old age, you will feel healthy and energetic. You don’t have to burden your relatives with taking care of you. You’ll be able to take care of yourself.


However, these claims have been denounced by a science graduate by education and a content writer by profession, Aditi Gangal who prefers doing research and analysis at THIP.


With a keen eye for detail, she works as a responsible fact checker who sincerely analyses fake news. A proactive and confident writer, she enjoys writing on health and wellbeing. And recently, she did this fact check: ‘Are doctors recommending Insulux for diabetes control?’ Aditi has this to say: “A herbal supplement Insulux claims to treat diabetes. The supplement is available in multiple online retail stores. The company promotes the product by publishing interviews with doctors who endorse the product directly or indirectly. The company further claims that the supplement is running out of stock due to high demand. We fact-checked and found that the interviews of those doctors were fake, and the stock shortage claims are False.  They also have a Facebook post promoting the herbal supplement named Insulux. The post claims that this supplement can cure diabetes and recommends people not to have metformin by giving reference to Dr Isa Asah.

Fact Check

Are the doctor interviews promoted by Insulux real?

It’s doubtful. The interview of Dr Isa Asah in the Facebook post was published, quoting different doctors on different websites. We found the same interview published under Dr Ibrahim Abdullah and Dr William Clapton on different websites.

Also, there is no online presence of any of these “renowned” doctors. The image of Dr Isa Asah, as shown in the Facebook post, also looks dubious. We ran a Google reverse image search on the photo of Dr Isa Asah and found that the image is fake. Our search showed that the image is a portrait of a mature Chinese doctor taken from a stock image library called Focused Collection.

Is Insulux running out of stock?

It does not seem so. The product is easily available at most online retail websites. We even found a few websites running Google Ads to increase the sale.

Is Insulux effective in curing diabetes?

Not sure. We have not fact-checked the effectiveness of the Insulux supplement. We have only fact-checked the marketing claims related to the product, especially their content.

That said, the company uses terms like “Magic cure” and “Diabetes disappears” in its communication. There is no clinical research quoted anywhere on its corporate website or product pages. As per available researchtype 2 diabetes in most cases cannot be cured but can only be managed.

Editor’s Note:  Please be careful about the nedications you buy online. Always consult your doctor. He is your surest bet.
