Nigerian Discovers Cure For Diabetes

Mar 18, 2009 Full story: thenewsng.com 45
For long, Dr.Louis Obyo Obyo Nelson was unknown to the Nigerian public. That has since changed. Last month Nelson, a research scientist, bobbed out of obscurity when he was credited with finding the cure for diabetes, considered the sixth largest killer disease in Nigeria and that which has about 123 million sufferers worldwide. Diabetes is the failure of the pancreas to break down sugar, leading to a series of complications.

Victims of the disease rely on injection of insulin and diet management as treatment. Nelson’s contribution bucks the trend. It is a herb-based drug that can be taken orally as capsule, tablet or syrup. Clinical trials have confirmed that the drug is a cure for diabetes.

Nelson has signed an exclusive worldwide licence agreement for the commercialisation, sales and marketing of the drug, currently named AD-1. The drug offers diabetics a great chance of living well, free of the hassle that comes with stringent health management routine. Nelson, quite justifiably, is being lauded as a national hero; a ray of hope in a season of darkness Full Story

I didn't know Africans suffered from diabetes. In America a large number of African Americans and Latinos have this disease. Must be our West African dna.

If this doctor has discovered a cure for diabetes then he will be a rich man.

Yeah, it's true, and the reason why we AA's have higher incidents of diabetes is because of our diets with all that fattening Soul Food and other unhealthy foods we eat.He'll be rich alright, but white people don't want to make cures for othe serious diseases since they'd rather continue to make millions off of people's suffering.

I just read the context of Nelson's statement....This is isn't a CURE...It's an alleged treatment... which means nothing.
He plans on hooking up with some rich americans to sell this scam in the usa... He will get rich,,but the sufferers of this disease will be the big losers.
It's all about the money baby!!!!

Our AA people need to stop beleve the hyped bull shit lies by the American media and the American Medical Asociation,according to them AA suffer the worst from all malladies.The real truth is American 's in general suffer from these diseases,White's die from more cancer's than black's so on on.... The African American diet in moderation is a great diet,bean meals cosisting of black eyed pea's or crowder peas ,or collard's turnip's kale green are excellent source of proteins and vitamins A C D E AND Calcium. The diet is pretty good,we should just go light on the freid food's fried chicken, and fish ,and have small portions. The traditional diet's are'nt the problem ,the corn syrup soda pop drinks are causing the obesity problems.These drinks and fake juices are full of this junk fillers.Farmers corn feed thier pig's to increase the size and fat percentage. Lastly ,additional reason for obesity in America is growth hormone meats and eggs we consume.With the help of growth hormones a half ton cow is mature in about four to six months,where as thirty years ago it took a normal cow two years to mature before it was slaugtered. Hormone induced eggs are twice the size of a unjuiced egg. The vast majority of world nation's will not accept are meat's due to the hormone's and the mass production process of are meats .Growth Hormones and cornsyrup products in all of the food we consume is the major cause of the obesity problem in America.

I got an email from Dr. Obyo Nelson two weeks ago.

Seems he needs $10,000 in order to continue his work. He offered to send me a certified check for a million dollars refundable in a year if I sent him the $10,000.

He said his patent would be worth one billion dollars once it's approved which would be in about a year.

I told him, sure, but he'd have to fly to the Cincinnati airport to pick up the money, that I'd be waiting on the tarmac with a brown paper bag stuffed with $10,000.

Haven't heard from the brother since.

No wonder scammers call you guys "mugus" meaning ignorant. They use innocent Nigerians to scam you people. They've used Genevive Nnaji (A nigerian movie star) who never in her life scammed, they've used Nkem Owoh (Anothe Nigerian movie star) who you amsterdam police went and arrested when he visited your country. Funny enough, the man barely even know they have been using his. They used the Nigerian presidents, they've used the richest black man in the world (who's a Nigerian) name. Dumbasses, they use rich or famous people to dube you people into thinking they are rich. No fucking wonder, they call you guys "mugus". Hell, even Nkem called Amsterdam's "mugus", he was pissed that they arrested him even though scammers were using he's name without his knowing. Hell, they even used Stephnie Okereke (another Nigerian moviestar) who has been in the hospital for over a year.

Not surprised, if it's a black scientist finding cure, then that shit isn't real. Stupid people

This has been out for years people. So has the cure for the common cold. HIV/AIDS too. To get cured of HIV/AIDS all you have to do is go to Italy. I don't know exactly where but it's very expensive though. They hook you up to a machine somehow and pump your blood out and heat it so hot that it kills the virus then, it pumps it back into your body.

This claim really is a bunch of silliness and Dr. Obyo Nelson is just the latest flavor in Nigerian quack doctor looking to make millions for a non-cure.

I wrote a lengthy comment on Nelson\'s so-called patent which ThiSDay has refused to publish.(I also write a comment on this Nelson misleading self-advertisement in 2003). Nelson is claiming a patent on bitter leaves (ewuro) which Nigerian herbalists, and herbalists in other parts of the worldd, have been using to control (not cure) diabetes for ages. This is 419 of the acada type. Let those who have a little science background go on-line and read this so-called patent and judge for themselves. Nelson is a chemist, but is claiming a patent based on spurious clinical studies he is not ethically qualified to conduct. Worse, his \'patent\' does not contain any quality chemical evidence that he isolated and characterized the anti-diabetic principle of ewuro. The chemistry contained in his \'patent\' is disgraceful. In willful ignorance, as usual of many Nigerians, these comentators are crowing over this dubious patent. Let anyone who wants to get the benefit of ewuro (bitter leaf) go eat ewuro (bitter leaf) and not wait for Nelson\'s \"invention\". This noise over Nelson\'s so-called invention is a disgrace to Nigeria. Thank God, anyway for the few voices of reason and science like Kingsley, and the Pharmaceutical Association of Nigeria.

This article is very deceptive at the least. The title suggests that diabetes can be \"cured\" with this agent - not controlled as is the current practice. Anyone who understands the process that medications pass through before they are considered effective and safe would be dismayed with this report.

Getting a patent for this product is a great achievement, but that is a long way from implying that it is effective for \"cure\" of diabetes and known to be safe. In the United states, the agency that determines that medications do what they are reported to do is the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA). I did not read anything here that suggests that this product passed through any form of FDA review.

If it has undergone appropriate reviews, then the results should be made public in the usual manner - scientific journals, meetings, symposia.

The danger of this kind of reporting is that if it is incorrect, it provides false hope for the millions of people with diabetes who would be dissapointed once the full details are revealed.

Sorry,guys, to pour sand sand into your celebrations. This happens to be a breakthrough known only in Nigeria (and Naija cyber-world. No journal publications or event presentations or other materials that may indicate some form of peer review. The news I have for you celebrants is that in the US, the drug aproval process is supervised by the FDA and not the Patents Office which only gives protection for inventions sort of like registering a company, if you will. The\'re millions of such herbal claims (with patents) running around the whole place. In other words, real breakthroughs are annouced in the pages of academics jouirnals and not on front pages news.( Almost akin to the goat-to-man story). Please get real, Nigerians!

Has Thisday and Nigerian Media evaluated this claim? What has the NMA got to say about this?
Dr. Abalaka fooled so many HIV AIDs patients and led them to an early grave in the 90\'s when Nigerian Media announced he found a cure.
Today many seem to have forgotten him after he made millions unethically.
This is another carefully contrived 410 in the making.
