Diabetes is a major problem especially in the US where obesity is growing daily. We want to see that number shrink and we know Lodonal can help that. Lodonal was originally prescribed at a higher dose to deal with addiction. Many people with obesity and diabetes are addicted to food and sweets. Lodonal blocks your opiod receptors temporarily reducing these "cravings". It also balances your TH3 and TH4 which is a big factor in people with diabetes. In doing research of what is in Lodonal it is interesting that sometimes is uses fillers like sugar but in the case of patients with diabetes it does not use sugar. 

According to the the LDN Book, "We ultimately chose sugar and microcrystalline cellulose as the most economical and easy-to-use excipients. However in cases where the patient is diabetic or hypoglycemic, sugar isobciously not the filler of choice. " Also they address the problem of lactose intolerant people as well as lactose is a common filler as well. "Many people have asked why we decided not to use lactose or acidophilus as fillers. First, Lactose is not particularly "compounding friendly" because the powders tend to fly around during the encapsulation process. Also, there are very large number of patients who are lactose intolerant."
