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).
