The Deliberate Lies They Tell About Diabetes

One in four Americans now have either diabetes or pre-diabetes (impaired fasting glucose) Type 2 diabetes is completely preventable and virtually 100 percent reversible, simply by implementing simple, inexpensive lifestyle changes, one of the most important of which is eliminating sugar (especially fructose) and grains from your diet Diabetes is NOT a disease of blood sugar, but rather a disorder of insulin and leptin signaling. Elevated insulin levels are not only symptoms of diabetes, but also heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer, and obesity Diabetes drugs are not the answer – most type 2 diabetes medications either raise insulin or lower blood sugar (failing to address the root cause) and many can cause serious side effects Sun exposure shows promise in treating and preventing diabetes, with studies revealing a significant link between high vitamin D levels and a lowered risk of developing type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and metabolic syndrome By Dr. Mercola There is a staggering amount of misinformation on diabetes, a growing epidem Continue reading >>

    Does insulin automatically cause weight gain?

    I keep hearing that insulin 'makes it harder' to lose weight. I have also read reports that it can make you gain weight. If I took insulin is there a sure fire way to make sure I don't gain any weight?
    If I took up weight lifting could I keep off the fat or will it come regardless?

    Yes insulin is a weight gain agent for me and yes countermeasure are for sure needed. Weight weight lifting I have a lot of tummy fat still but also some muscle mass.
    Sure fire ? Nothing is sure fire but adding metformin helps and so does a low carb diet to minimize the insulin needed.

    I have been on insulin for 8 years and weigh now what I weighed 8 years ago. I have not gained. I don't think there is a "sure fire" way to make sure you don't gain however it is important to remember that taking insulin is not an OK to eat anything and as much as you want.
    Portion control, eating the right type of carbs and exercise will help.
