Yes, I've seen many testimonials. They can be found on the web sites of the raw foodists linked in the original post and in their books.
I've never had diabetes (at least not that I know of), so I can't provide any insight from personal experience. But the theory behind it and the results others have reported makes a lot of sense to me.
Erin and I actually have a blood sugar testing device, like what diabetics use. I've tested my blood sugar a few times in the past several days out of curiosity and have never had a reading above 87 (I think the ideal range is supposed to be 80 to 120 or so), even though I'm eating tons of fruit sugar. So apparently my body is doing an OK job of regulating my blood sugar. I may keep testing after I convert to all raw just to see what happens, since then I'll be eating even more fruit. I just find it interesting that no matter how much fruit I eat, it doesn't seem to spike my blood sugar.
