bloodsugarOMG!    If “Restore My Vision, Today” wasn’t too saccharine for you, then your blood pressure will spike if you subject yourself to “Restore My Blood Sugar Now“.   This newest scam, no doubt related to the Restore-My-Vision scammers,  is yet another in a series of overpriced, misleading information pitches.  This time, it is targeted at the millions of diabetes suffers who are looking for relief from this very complicated illness.    It claims to provide a natural and safe way for controlling your unpredictable blood sugar levels in as little as 21 days.  What is so unfortunate is that diabetes is a very serious condition and what these marketers are offering is so overpriced for the value offered.

The emails promoting this dubious offer send you to a slick web site asking for the “low price” of $37 for a booklet about a diet plan “guaranteed” to reduce your blood sugar.   There, you are treated to a videomercial that touts the “controversial way to fight your diabetes”.   Is it a scam?   Is it a rip-off?  Does it work?    You’ll never find out,  largely because of an increasingly pernicious Internet industry that offers fake product review sites. It uses the same “controversial”, “banned” “revolutionary” and “shocking” video come-on to entice consumers to pay premium bucks for a “diet plan” fashioned by alleged doctors:  Andrew Forester and D. Chao.  If you try to find these “doctors” online, you’ll be disappointed, as they don’t exist.   At least, they have no credentials posted on the Web.

So, should you spend the $37?   As with its sister scam,  “Restore My Vision”  We recommend not, for the following reasons:

1.  There’s a reason this sales pitch is 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 vinamy.com, healthproductreviewcenter.com and secretsites.org)   The marketers for this service paid to have these fake sites thwart any customer looking for real reviews.   They are nothing more than cleverly concealed links to the same scheme that is attempting to separate you from your hard-earned $37.

3.  The authors are unknown.  If the website fails to feature the credentials of the author and/or if a Google search turns up nothing about this person, you can bet this is a marketer-driven product.   The fact that the alleged Dr. Forester has a well-trained announcer’s voice with almost perfect diction suggests that the so-called doctor is not what he seems.   The absence of any qualifications for these “doctors” or any scientifically-supported analysis on the Web is a tell-tale sign of a marketing ruse.

4.  Perhaps most importantly, there is an abundance of free or low-cost blood sugar information on the Internet.    Amazon offers a number of ebooks that cost nothing and provide the kinds of well-established diets that reduce blood sugar.  The titles include:  “The Daniel Sugar Diet”, “Diabetes Patients Capsule”,  and Diabetes Diet Mastery….among many others.   All of these are priced at under $1.    Moreover, the Internet is chock full of very reliable and scientifically supported dietary solutions to high sugar levels.   Among the most reputable is the Mayo Clinic web page.  The price for this information?   $0.

5.  The testimonials offered in the video do not offer the full names or backgrounds of the individuals who are touting the product in very terse, well-crafted and well-lighted videos.  And the 60-day guarantee accompanying the offer is part of the ClickBank program that has a lot of consumers complaining about run-arounds and unresponsiveness.

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.

We recommend that you try these low-cost or free books out before forking over $37 to the faux doctors.   And beware ANY Net-based sales pitch that has uncredentialed, slick video presentations with no independent reviews.  It may not be a scam, but just like the almost identical “Restore My Vision” scheme, this one is probably an identical rip-off because it is overpriced for what it is offering.   In this case, there’s lots of good vision exercises in the marketplace offered at a fraction of the cost of “Restore My Blood Sugar”.   Save your hard-earned money.
