How You Can Cure Your Type Ii Diabetes

How You Can Cure Your Type Ii Diabetes

The Diabesity Prescription “After 4 Years Of Suffering from Diabetes, this 58-year old Woman from the Midwest Now Lives A Normal, Happy, Hassle-free Life… (Again)” Recent Advances Published in The New England Journal of Medicine Reveal the Science to Reversing Diabetes…and the New Program That Makes it Available to You Right Now After years of hassle, frustration and pain managing her type II diabetes, my patient Janet finally uncovered the underlying causes of her diabetes and the chronic conditions associated with her insulin resistance, which made her sick and overweight. What follows is not just her story of survival, but also of a remarkable new science that can arm you with the same tools to prevent diabetes. They are the steps you can take RIGHT NOW to rebalance your body’s 7 key systems and permanently reverse your diabetes, just like Janet did. To return to a normal, happy, active, joy-filled life like Janet did, you need to identify which of your body’s 7 key systems are imbalanced and to restore them to health…but identifying precisely WHICH of those systems are out of balance is the key. Here’s how Janet did it… “Diabetes Sucks!” Those were the first words out of Janet’s mouth when I met her in my office. I was a little surprised, but soon I completely understood her frustration. At the age of 56, Janet was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. After several years of deprivation, eating like a rabbit and “sticking” herself with a blood sugar measurement device several times a day, Janet was frustrated when her doctor said she’d “have this disease forever.” Tired of just treating her symptoms with medication, Janet wanted to learn if there was another way to eliminate her diabetes. Janet is not an isolated case — anyone with type Continue reading >>

Can Diabetes Be Cured? A Review Of Therapies And Lifestyle Changes

Can Diabetes Be Cured? A Review Of Therapies And Lifestyle Changes

Diabetes is a condition that affects blood sugar levels and causes many serious health problems if not managed well. The health impacts of diabetes can be limited, but can it ever be "cured"? Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that develops when the body destroys the cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. This means people with type 1 diabetes do not make insulin. In those with type 2 diabetes, there is a decreased sensitivity to insulin and the body does not make or use as much insulin as it needs. Type 2 diabetes is much more common than type 1 diabetes. This article reviews therapies and lifestyle changes that can help reduce the effects of diabetes on a person's health. It also explores whether these treatments can help "cure" diabetes, or if they are simply helpful ways to manage the condition. Contents of this article: Is diabetes curable? Medically speaking, there is no cure for diabetes but it can go into "remission." Diabetes in remission simply means the body does not show any signs of diabetes. However, the disease is technically still there. According to Diabetes Care, remission can take different forms: Partial remission: When a person has had a blood glucose level lower than that of a person with diabetes for at least 1 year without any diabetes medication. Complete remission: When the blood glucose level returns to normal, not simply pre-diabetic levels, for at least 1 year without any medications. Prolonged remission: When complete remission lasts for at least 5 years. Even if a person has had normal blood sugar levels for 20 years, their diabetes is still considered to be in remission rather than "cured." There is no known cure for diabetes. The good news is that remission is possible in many cases and can be as simple as making some lifestyl Continue reading >>

Is There A Cure For Type 2 Diabetes?

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 insulin. Our pancreas produces insulin, which is used by our cells as an energy source. In healthy people the pancreas provides the body with the right amount of insulin at the right time. However, certain conditions cause the pancreas to stop functioning properly. Risk factors include: Overweight or obese Family history of diabetes Hypertension Physical inactivity Depression History of gestational diabetes Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease HDL-C levels under 35mg/dL Fasting triglycerides over 250 mg/dL Treatment with atypical antipsychotics, glucocorticoids Obstructive sleep apnea and chroni Continue reading >>

Is Type 2 Diabetes Curable? (the 8 Things You Need To Know)

Is Type 2 Diabetes Curable? (the 8 Things You Need To Know)

If you’ve been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, you can probably relate to the feeling of helplessness and sheer devastation that comes along with it. It’s scary – and it’s a problem that’s spreading fast. In fact, almost 10 percent of Americans have diabetes, and nearly a third are undiagnosed. Plus, a shocking 1.4 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every single year (1). It’s pretty clear that diabetes is becoming a widespread issue and the truth is that it will affect all of us at one point or another, either directly or indirectly. But let’s be clear: a diagnosis of diabetes is not a death sentence. If you’ve been told you have prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, there is hope. And the first step to treating your diabetes is arming yourself with the knowledge of what’s going on in your body so that you can learn how to cure type 2 diabetes permanently. Let’s get started. Diabetes 101: It’s Not Just Sugar Most people think that diabetes is just a problem with blood sugar. Many doctors and health practitioners often simplify their explanation of diabetes, boiling it down to just having too much sugar in the blood because that’s easier than really explaining the full scope of the problem. To really get started with reversing type 2 diabetes naturally, though, it’s important to get the full picture. It starts with the food that we eat, which is all converted into glucose, a type of sugar that our body uses for energy. When we eat, our pancreas produces a hormone known as insulin, which is what takes that glucose from our blood into the cells of our body, so that we can use it for energy. When it comes to diabetes, the problem really isn’t with our blood sugar. It’s with the insulin. For those with type 1 diabetes, the pancreas isn’t Continue reading >>

Type 2 Diabetes Is A Fully Curable Disease

Type 2 Diabetes Is A Fully Curable Disease

Type 2 diabetes is a fully curable disease. And still conventional medicine treat it as the opposite – as a chronic and progressive disease. We try to mask the symptoms and slow down the complications, instead of curing it! It’s quite easy to prove that type 2 diabetes is a curable disease. Have a look at this chart of the number of required drugs for treating the disease, over 12 months on three different treatments in a 2012 study: The top graph is conventional treatment. Everyone starts out on three different medications and they keep having to take the drugs. This is what we normally do. It simply does not work as a cure and may even make the diabetes worse. The bottom two graphs are common variants of obesity surgery, where a large (healthy) part of the stomach is removed. Many patients suddenly don’t need drugs anymore, their diabetes completely goes away! The point is not to recommend surgery that removes healthy organs – I don’t recommend that. The point it that type 2 diabetes is a fully curable disease. Luckily it’s not even necessary to remove healthy organs to do so, it’s also possible by just changing your lifestyle. Here’s a longer post on the subject by the great Dr. Jason Fung: IDM: Surgery Reverses Diabetes – T2D3 I just spent a few days with Dr. Fung and we have some really interesting plans. If you’re at all interested in this topic I think you’ll love what we have coming up soon. More Continue reading >>

A New Medical Trial Has Seen Type 2 Diabetes

A New Medical Trial Has Seen Type 2 Diabetes "reversed" In 40% Of Patients For 3 Months

Type 2 diabetes is generally considered to be a chronic health condition that can't be cured once it develops, and can only be managed with a combination of medication and healthy living – assisted by gastric band (bariatric) surgery in some cases. But new research suggests that people may actually be able to beat the disease for set periods, by undertaking an intensive short-term course of medical treatment that's been shown to reverse type 2 diabetes in a significant proportion of patients. "By using a combination of oral medications, insulin, and lifestyle therapies to treat patients intensively for two to four months, we found that up to 40 percent of participants were able to stay in remission three months after stopping diabetes medications," says one of the researchers, Natalia McInnes from McMaster University in Canada. "The findings support the notion that type 2 diabetes can be reversed, at least in the short term – not only with bariatric surgery, but with medical approaches." Type 2 diabetes is caused by the body not producing enough insulin – the hormone that enables cells to absorb glucose - or becoming insulin resistant. As a consequence, blood sugars build up in the body, and can lead to serious health problems like organ damage and heart disease. Over 29 million Americans have type 2 diabetes, and estimates indicate that it could cost the US health care system as much as US$512 billion annually by 2021 – so any interventions that can effectively treat the condition are desperately needed. To investigate whether intensive health treatments could trigger remission in type 2 diabetes patients, the researchers recruited 83 participants with the condition and randomly divided them into three groups. Two of these groups received the short-term interve Continue reading >>

Has A British Man Really Been Cured Of Type 1 Diabetes?

Has A British Man Really Been Cured Of Type 1 Diabetes?

I have been living with type 1 diabetes for 25 years now. The relentlessness of type 1, and the fact that I will probably live with this non-preventable condition for the rest of my life never goes away, but I have almost made peace with it. A few days ago, I saw something that gave me pause. “British man with type 1 diabetes to receive tests after coming off insulin,” read Diabetes.co.uk’s headline. The article goes onto say that, “Daniel Darkes, from Daventy in Northamptonshire, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes seven years ago. But his recent tests have baffled doctors as his pancreas has shown signs of working properly again.” My first thoughts upon reading this were, “this can’t be true,” and “what’s the real explanation here?” There are many types of diabetes including type 2, LADA, and monogenic. Maybe he actually had one of those types instead of type 1. Usually, tests can determine this quickly though, so why was it not the case with Dan? I live in the UK and I wanted to get to the bottom of things. I managed to get in touch with ‘Miracle Dan’, as he’s been called by his friends. Although he is saving the specific details of his recent test results from the U.S. for an upcoming exclusive interview with another media outlet, he spoke to me and answered some of my questions about everything that has been happening. Please tell us a bit about yourself and your diabetes. When were you diagnosed? I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes back in February 2011 at the age of 23, after just leaving the army. I started a new engineering job and within two weeks of starting, I noticed the traditional symptoms of type 1 diabetes: thirst, weight loss, blurry vision, and a lot of vomiting. I collapsed and was taken by ambulance to hospital where I wa Continue reading >>

You Can Reverse Your Type 2 Diabetes Within A Month As Follows

You Can Reverse Your Type 2 Diabetes Within A Month As Follows

Once you have fixed all of these you will be clinically non diabetic. You will pass any diabetic test. Any peripheral neuralgia will have improved to the point of almost vanishing. However you will have to continue to eat fairly low carb and you will have to do some amount of carb burning medium intensity exercise every night before bed for several years after the fix. The writer was diagnosed Type 2 with fasting sugar of 18 mmol/L (324 mg/dl) in November2012 and HbA1c of 11.4%. He has done all 3 steps above. He now has normal fasting insulin resistance (HOMA IR1 is 1.2), normal HbA1c (4.8%) and normal fasting sugar 4.4 mmol/L (79 mg/dl). It was an extremely difficult piece of research to do to get to this point and the writer although clinically non diabetic is not fully cured and still has to watch the carbs and to walk for 75 minutes on a treadmill every night before bed. But his peripheral neuralgia has essentially gone and he has no diabetic complications. Step 1: Fixing spot sugar. 1. Eat two meals per day and no snacking at all. No cups of tea or coffee except with meals. 2. Eat no type of food with more than 12 grams of carb per 100 grams of food. 3. No Vegetable oil at all 4. No Nuts at all. 5. No Cheese at all 6. No sugar at all.. 7. 300-400 grams of flax seed and chia seed bread per day 8. 200-300 grams of full fat natural yoghurt per day 9. 250-400 grams of whole milk per day 10. Fish or Chicken or Lamb or Beef roasted or grilled so as to remove most of the fat. 11. Eat at most one egg per day. 12. Eat spreadable butter which is mainly butter with a small amount of rapeseed oil (such as Lurpak spreadable) 13. No high carb bread, no grains, no cakes, no biscuits, no pizza, no pastries, no pasta, no muffins, no doughnuts, no crackers, no pies 14. No fruits exc Continue reading >>

Will Diabetes Go Away?

Will Diabetes Go Away?

There is no cure for diabetes. Neither type 1 (juvenile onset or insulin-requiring) diabetes or type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes ever goes away. In type 1 diabetes, patients sometimes experience what physicians have come to call a "honeymoon period" shortly after the disease is diagnosed. During the "honeymoon period" diabetes may appear to go away for a period of a few months to a year. The patient's insulin needs are minimal and some patients may actually find they can maintain normal or near normal blood glucose taking little or no insulin. It would be a mistake to assume that the diabetes has gone away, however. Basically, type 1 diabetes occurs when about 90 percent of the body's insulin-producing cells have been destroyed. At the time that type 1 diabetes is diagnosed, most patients still are producing some insulin. If obvious symptoms of type 1 diabetes emerge when the patient has an illness, virus or cold, for example, once the illness subsides the body's insulin needs may decrease. At this point, the number of insulin-producing cells remaining may be enough — for the moment — to meet the person's insulin needs again. But the process that has destroyed 90 percent of the insulin-producing cells will ultimately destroy the remaining insulin-producing cells. And as that destruction continues, the amount of injected insulin the patient needs will increase — and ultimately the patient will be totally dependent on insulin injections. Scientists now think that it is important for people with newly diagnosed diabetes to continue taking some insulin by injection even during the honeymoon period. Why? Because they have some scientific evidence to suggest that doing so will help preserve the few remaining insulin-producing cells for a while longer. Patients diagnosed wi Continue reading >>

Is There A Diabetes Cure?

Is There A Diabetes Cure?

With all the research on diabetes and advances in diabetes treatments, it's tempting to think someone has surely found a diabetes cure by now. But the reality is that there is no cure for diabetes -- neither type 1 diabetes nor type 2 diabetes. (Although lifestyle changes can achieve remission in type 2 diabetes in some cases.) However, there are treatments, including simple things you can do daily, that make a big difference. No. Natural therapies such as deep abdominal breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, and biofeedback can help relieve stress. And emotional stress affects your blood sugar levels. So learning to relax is important in managing your diabetes. Supplements don't cure diabetes, either. Some natural supplements may interact dangerously with your diabetes medication. Others have been shown to help improve your diabetes, but always check with your doctor before taking any supplement. Be skeptical about claims of a diabetes cure. A genuine cure will have been tested repeatedly in clinical trials with clear success. Even though there's no diabetes cure, diabetes can be treated and controlled, and some people may go into remission. To manage diabetes effectively, you need to do the following: Manage your blood sugar levels. Know what to do to help keep them as near to normal as possible every day: Check your glucose levels frequently. Take your diabetes medicine regularly. And balance your food intake with medication, exercise, stress management, and good sleep habits. Plan what you eat at each meal. Stick to your diabetes eating plan as often as possible. Bring healthy snacks with you. You’ll be less likely to snack on empty calories. Exercise regularly. Exercise helps you keep you fit, burns calories, and helps normalize your blood gluc Continue reading >>

The Cure For Type 2 Diabetes Is Known, But Few Are Aware

The Cure For Type 2 Diabetes Is Known, But Few Are Aware

The cure for type 2 diabetes is known, but few are aware I recently posted to Facebook about a cure for diabetes and suggested someone try it. Just six days later, I received the following message from a friend: I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for that post… My lab results at the beginning of the month were 230. After just this last week it’s down to 155. I think I’ll be in normal range within a month. Really miraculous… It’s really been a game changer for me already and I wanted you to know how much I appreciated the info and how much of a difference I think it will make in my life. Four months later, the friend posted this to Facebook: I started on this regiment when Nathan posted about it [four months ago]. My blood glucose level at that time, while taking two daily glucose meds, was 235. Two weeks ago, my [fasting] glucose level, WITHOUT the meds, was 68. If you google “diabetes cure” you are directed to websites like WebMD and the Mayo Clinic where you find information on diet, exercise, medication, and insulin therapy, but nothing about the cure. This lack of information may have to do with the fact that Americans spend $322 billion a year to treat diabetes, $60 billion a year on weight-loss programs, and $124 billion a year on snack foods. This is about 3% of the US economy! Because so many peoples’ livelihoods are supported by diabetes and its main cause, obesity, the viral effect of people getting cured and telling others is greatly diminished. Because of this understandable stifling of the message, if you are like my Facebook friend and have already experienced the type 2 diabetes cure for yourself — there are thousands of you out there — it is important for you to share your success stories as far and wide as possible. You c Continue reading >>

Can Early Diabetes Be Controlled Or Completely Stopped?

Can Early Diabetes Be Controlled Or Completely Stopped?

Type 2 or adult-onset diabetes is one of the most significant threats to health today. Most cases are linked to the epidemic of obesity. The long-term consequences of diabetes include cardiovascular diseases such as stroke, heart attack and peripheral vascular disease. Diabetes is also a leading cause of blindness, kidney failure and leg amputation. Attention to diet, exercise and even a small weight loss can help someone with diabetes, or especially pre-diabetes. This is a metabolic disease, meaning it is an issue of energy balance. In normal physiology, when the amount of food energy consumed, measured in calories, exceeds the amount of energy burned, the body converts and saves the excess energy as fat. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a resistance to the hormone insulin, which causes sugar or glucose to enter muscle and organs of the body. For reasons that are poorly understood, some people's tissues become less sensitive to insulin as the body stores more fat. The results are a rise in blood sugar levels and the long-term consequences described above. I prefer to think of diabetes as a disease with a white-to-black spectrum of severity and a broad gray area. For those who have pre-diabetes or even mild diabetes, one can take steps to move toward the lighter gray or white area of the spectrum, with small improvements in diet, small increases in activity and loss of just a few pounds. I am hesitant to say that diabetes is cured, but it can often be controlled, and one can return to normal blood sugars without the need for diabetes medicines, and the risk of diabetic complications are significantly reduced. This is rare and more difficult but not impossible for severe diabetics. Many who progress to diabetes could have prevented it by maintaining a lower and not necessaril Continue reading >>

Man Cures His Diabetes In 11 Days With 'starvation Diet'

Man Cures His Diabetes In 11 Days With 'starvation Diet'

“I was stunned,” he said. “I have always been a healthy weight, 5ft 7in and 10st 7lb. I had no family history of diabetes, ate a healthy diet, never smoked and I did not have a sweet tooth.” Researching on the internet, he found Newcastle University scientists had devised a low-calorie diet said to reverse diabetes in eight weeks. It involved eating 800 calories a day – a man’s recommended intake is 2,500. This was made up of 600 calories from meal replacement shakes and soups and 200 calories from green vegetables, plus three litres of water a day. The diet was devised by Roy Taylor, professor of medicine and metabolism at Newcastle. It is based on the fact that Type 2 diabetes is often caused by fat clogging up the liver and pancreas, which are crucial in producing insulin and controlling blood sugar. Professor Taylor’s studies show that drastic dieting causes the body to go into starvation mode and burn fat stores for energy – and the fat around the organs seems to be targeted first. This leads to the liver and pancreas becoming unclogged and insulin and blood sugar levels returning to normal. With the consent of his GP, Londoner Mr Doughty, who works in the media, followed the diet, setting a target weight of 8st 12lb. He said: “Surviving on a soup, two shakes and green veg wasn’t easy.” But the weight dropped off, and tests proved he had reversed the condition. “I stuck to the diet for 11 days and reduced my blood sugar to a healthy non-diabetic level,” Mr Doughty added. “It has remained that way for the past year and I have kept to just under 9st.” Professor Taylor said: “While it has long been believed that Type 2 diabetes will steadily get worse, we have shown we can reverse the condition.” Continue reading >>
