Is There A Cure For Type 2 Diabetes?

Unlike type 1 diabetes, which is a chronic condition, type 2 is preventable. Plus, recent studies show that it’s also reversible. Preventable and Reversible: It’s these two clinically proven facts that most healthcare systems choose to overlook when prescribing a treatment plan for their patients. If you have diabetes mellitus type 2, also known as type 2 diabetes (T2DM), your body makes insulin but it fails to recognize it. This is commonly called insulin resistance. It’s this condition that allows the glucose in your body to elevate, causing numerous health complications. Here’s the trouble with the U.S. healthcare system. It has been taught that T2DM is a blood sugar disease. It’s not. T2DM is a disorder of insulin and leptin signaling for glucose regulation. It starts as prediabetes and slowly progresses into full-blown diabetes. Without proper treatment it’s a killer, leading to heart disease, stroke, and more. Western medicine is failing to eradicate type 2 diabetes because it largely refuses to treat the condition with anything other than pharmaceuticals. With long-term use, drugs often worsen a patient’s condition by artificially increasing sensitivity to insu Continue reading >>

    What do you do when you have no appetite?

    For the last month, I have had no appetite.. I make myself eat (healthy foods) so my level won't drop. Any suggestions? I'm a 2 and lately my bgl has been about 93 to 101. I've found if I drop below 80, I experience the problems of low sugar.
    Thanks!

    I have been on prednisone (40mg) dailyt for the past 15 years, which has caused my diabetes and much more. But o ne of the worst side effects is the constant sensation of hunger. Since predinsone is a cholesterol and tends to hoard and retain anything one puts in their mouth, I used visualization to override the sensation of needing to eat all the time. Unfortunately, to this day, I have no appetite either, and even the right foods that make me feel better do not sound appetizing. On a whim, when my numbers were way up, I decided to fall back on an old recipe- remember the cabbage diet recipe? Well I augmented it a little adding more vegetables, and tomatoes for the sugar content, and I've found that it is not something I have to force myself to eat because it is flavorful. But it is a negative calorie meal or snack, so you'll have to fill in the gaps with healthy snacks, but for some reason, having the soup around has helped me modify my eating schedule so that I am getting all of the protein, carbs etc. I need. I just fill a dutch oven with 1/2 head shredded cabbage, three leeks, whites only, 3 bunches green oni, ons, one sleeve chopped celery, 2 cans sliced carrots, 1 chopped green pepper, 1 chopped yellow pepper, 1 chopped red pepper (for color) 1 64oz bottle of V-8 and 2 64oz canned tomatoes (either hand crushed or diced). Garlic Pepper to taste, a dash of cumin and 1 6oz can of stewed tomatoes with green chili.
    I just keep the soup in the dutch oven heated, and eat it in between snacks and it seems to get my appetite going. I don't know if it is the heat of the soup, or the ingredients.
    Otherwise, don't force yourself to eat, rather keep foods in sight and out to graze on so that when the urge does come, (your body won't let you starve to death), you can eat at will.
    Good Luck!!!
