Dear Jenni, Targeted Low Dose Chemotherapy using Insulin as a biologic
response modifier is a form of alternative therapy known as Insulin
Potentiation Targeted Low Dose Therapy (IPTLD). ‘QuackWatch’ (Your Guide to
Quackery, Health Fraud, and Intelligent Decisions), states that Insulin
Potentiation Therapy (IPT) is one of several unproven, dangerous treatments
that is promoted by a small group of practitioners without trustworthy evidence
that it works. It is claimed to be effective against cancer, infectious
diseases, arthritis, and many other conditions. Several patents have been
issued, but patents are based on whether or not something appears to be
original – proof of effectiveness is not required. IPT is based on the notion
that intravenous insulin increases the effect of medications so that lower
doses can be used.
It is suggested that you stay clear of IPTLD until you have had an
in-depth discussion with your treating physician. (MCH).
