Just the title of this recent Internet offering should be setting off fraud alarms because it contains a word that scamsters over the centuries have loved to use: “loophole” . But there is no loophole…..only a scam. This one is rooted in the scientifically-dubious proposition that cytokines are at the root of diabetes. Like so many of the other Internet diabetes scams, this one tries to pry $37 from your checking account. Like other alleged cures, including Diabetes Destroyer and Diabetes Free, they use questionable cures and over-the-top promises to reduce your bank account rather than your insulin levels.
Diabetes Loophole’s “get” is that chronic inflammation is caused by cytokines. Cytokines are a well documented chemical substance released by the body’s immune system to fight disease and other foreign bodies entering our cells. Their activity usually causes inflammation, which subsides once the offending disease/foreign body is neutralized. The medical community has known for decades that cytokines are connected, in some way, to diabetes. So what these scammers do is take a small bit of science and blow it up into a “cure” that has no scientific validity. In this case, they took a 2015 study about the use of gene-cell therapy techniques to manipulate cytokines in order to treat Type 1 Diabetes and then distort it into a quack cure.
We see this kind of scam all of the time; it is an almost textbook scheme by which Internet marketers overcharge consumers for dubious information, much of which is readily available on the Net for free. The typical price charged by these other scammers is $37….identical to what the Diabetes Miracle Cure marketers want to charge your credit card. We dug a bit into this particular Diabetes scheme and here’s what we found out.
The emails hawking Diabetes Loophole send you to an even slicker web site asking for the “low price” of $37 for a guaranteed to cure diabetes. Is it a scam? Is it a rip-off? Does it work? You’ll never find out from the websites, largely because of an increasingly pernicious Internet industry that offers fake product review sites; You’ll also never be able to find out about the credentials of Reed Wilson because he doesn’t exist. So, should you spend the $37? We recommend not, for the following specific reasons:
1. There’s a reason these sales pitches are slick — they spend a lot of marketing money to get it to you. Who is paying for that? You are!
2. If you look for a review of the product, you are deluged with lots of fake review or scam sites that simply direct you to the main sales site or offer some pablum talking about how the product is highly rated or recommended. (such as scamX.comand infoscamreviews.com) The marketers for this service paid to have these fake sites thwart any customer looking for real reviews.
3. The author of Diabetes Loophole doesn’t exist. His name is alleged to be Reed Wilson and they describe him as an “alternative health researcher”. But Contrahealthscam.com and other web sites have figured out that he is a stock photo you can buy at Shutterstock.com, Deposit Photos, 123RF.com etc.!
The real author of this scheme is one of the Agora scamsters who have littered the Internet with these kinds of health scams such as scams Pure Natural Healing, Hard on Demand and NutriO2 . Check out the Clickbank affiliate ad below for the real behind-the-scene details about this particular scam:
That’s right. This offering promises its “affiliates” $24.77 from the $37 that you send to Diabetes Loophole.
4. To buy the Diabetes “modules”, you are required to use Clickbank. This Internet payment gateway has generated a number of complaints about difficulties in securing refunds and getting responses. It is unregulated and known to serve unscrupulous businesses. It is akin to going into the wrong bar in a bad neighborhood; they may serve the same booze but you’d not want to hang with the other patrons.
5. Perhaps most importantly, there is an abundance of free or low-cost diabetes prevention information on the Internet. Amazon offers a number of ebooks that cost nothing and provide well-established, scientifically-validated diabetes treatment plans. The titles include: Diabetes, the Ultimate Guide, The Sugar Solution and Mayo Clinic Essential Diabetes Book — all of this information is free or less than a few bucks; Even easier, you can just click this link and find excellent information about diabetes prevention.

And please consider the recently reported case of a Type-2 diabetes sufferer. She was 3 years old and morbidly obese. After 6 months of lifestyle changes monitored by doctors, she was “cured”. For many people, lifestyle changes really do make a difference. The doctors replaced her soda and fast food diet with balanced home cooked meals and water.
Based upon our findings, we strongly recommend against anyone forking over their hard-earned money for an overpriced, medically-questionable Internet offer. You can create your own “diabetes miracle cure” for free through weight loss, aerobic exercise along with some resistance training (weights and bands),eating low glycemic foods reducing stress in your life.This is the prescription outlined by hundreds of books online.
If you choose to hand-over your $37 to these unscrupulous marketing machines, then be prepared for what follows because once they find someone willing to part with their hard-earned money, you can be sure that they’ll be back with more dubious offers. You’ll now be marked as a “cow” and they’ll try to milk you every way they can with additional offers and costly upgrades. You may want to think twice before you open this nefarious box.
