Recently came across this post circulating on facebook:
Finally, Good News for Diabetics
A woman (65) was diabetic for the last 20+ years and was taking insulin twice a day. She used the enclosed homemade medicine for a fortnight and now she is absolutely free of diabetes and taking all her food as normal including sweets.
The doctors have advised her to stop insulin and any other blood sugar controlling drugs. I request you all please circulate the email below to as many people as you can and let them take maximum benefit from it.
AS RECEIVED :
DR. TONY ALMEIDA (Bombay Kidney Speciality expert) made the extensive experiments with perseverance and patience and discovered a successful treatment for diabetes. Now a days a lot of people, old men & women in particular suffer a lot due to Diabetes.

The only Tony Almeida I could reliably find after searching the internet is this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Almeida, a fictional character from a TV series.
Think about it, what has diabetes got to do with kidneys? How come no researcher working on diabetes comes up with any solution and only a “bombay kidney specialist” gives a magic formula?
All medical research is reported in medical journals and can be searched online. Can the people posting this point me to where this is published?
This is not even ayurveda but an obvious hoax. Dr. Sheldon Cooper (Delhi brain speciality expert) requests you to share this so that “maximum number of people can benefit from it.” Let the hoax die, please!
