    I discussed “Vαnοjο Fivu” to Type two diabetes patients. One of them was able to reduce his HA1c to 5.9 and won in treating his diabetic issues. The condition of the other individual has drastically improved. His fasting blood sugar was decrease to 110mg/dL and he is no longer susceptible to heart trauma, sacrificing his legs and arms, as well as eye impairment and neuropathy..
