It is flat! and where can I get certified in it!?

Devil's Advocate: While not that healthy long term, it is only meant for 15 days. The low caloric content and complete lack of refined sugars will definitely make some sort of immediate positive impact for someone who has achieved a pre T2 diabetic state (high insulin resistance/blood-glucose) from a prior long-term diet high in refined sugars and processed carbs, etc, and a lifestyle of taking in more energy than expended.
Edit: This rice cleans-ish diet kind of reminds of of that "Nail Soup" fable, where the hungry charlatan goes door to door with a nail, telling gullible residents that their special nail will make the most wonderful soup. All that is needed is one extra ingredient... and just one more ingredient... and just one final ingredient. In the end, it isn't the nail that makes for a decent soup, but all of the ingredients provided by the resident. Substitute the nail with rice in this scenario, the real benefit to blood-glucose levels coming from calorie restriction and elimination of refined sugar.
What is it?
Lysulin is a formulation developed by a Ph.D. It is nothing groundbreaking. Just a combination of the amino acid Lysine, vitamin C and the essential element Zinc.
How does it work?
Lysulin takes a three-pronged approach to attacking the high blood glucose problem.
Lysine binds with glucose molecules and is passed out through the urine. Result: lesser numbers of damaging glucose molecules to go around wreaking havoc on the body.
Vitamin C is similar in structure to the glucose molecule and will substitute glucose in the adverse metabolic reactions that are responsible for the ravaging effects of Diabetes. Vitamin C also drops the blood glucose level. Result: Diabetic damage is minimized.
Zinc is necessary in the storage of the insulin molecule. Diabetics are usually deficient in Zinc. Result: more Zinc is available for the body's needs and especially for storing insulin in sufficient quantities.
Are there any side effects?
Depends. If Zinc levels are normal in the body, supplementing with additional Zinc may disturb the levels of copper in the body as both are related. High levels of supplemented Vitamin C may increase the impact of any insult/injury to the liver. And finally, the amino acid Lysine may cause renal tubular necrosis. Translation: may lead to kidney failure.
Should I use it?
If you think the benefits outweigh the potential side effects, Lysulin may help to bring blood glucose levels within the normal range. Always discuss with your doctor before starting any supplement.

I stand by the accuracy of these statements as they reflect my understanding of this product and its constituents based on non-exhaustive Google searches and study of medical research papers. Those interested in verifying the veracity of these statements are encouraged to conduct their own Google searches and reach their own conclusions. Thank you.
EDIT: wrongly mentioned that Zinc is involved in formation of Insulin. Zinc is actually used for storing Insulin in the pancreatic beta cells.

Yeah. See a doctor and ignore the credulous fool on some random Internet forum.

You may have initially had some bad experiences, but I still doubt anyone here has the education or qualifications to say "all the doctors are wrong" about anything, regardless if they or their "friend" has it.
Hopefully no one here is dumb enough to discard real medical advice and their doctor's direction, and follow some whizz-bang crap about rice from an internet forum.
