Chances are high you may already be diabetic, or you will become one, or a family member will — and you must be concerned. Diabetes leads to many serious medical complications. Diabetes kills. Over 400 million Type 2 diabetics around the globe are causing economic havoc to those affected, their families, and their countries. Its future costs will be catastrophic.
Insulin resistance is a faulty theory
Doctors will tell you that in Type 2 diabetes, the pancreas produces insulin, but some body cells are "resistant" to it. However, despite 80 years of research, this theory remains unproven. There is no explanation why insulin resistance begins or why it affects only three types of cells — liver, muscle, and fat. This false theory impacts your treatment.
Type 2 diabetes is a nutritional condition
Type 2 diabetes results from the overconsumption of grains and grain flour products. Grains create triglycerides that fill the body's fat cells, after which excess triglycerides break down into fatty acids that muscle cells burn, leaving glucose in the blood. This is why Type 2 diabetes is spreading in countries where grains become a major percentage of the diet. It explains why children and teens now develop Type 2 diabetes. It explains how even thin people and pregnant women develop diabetes. You can avoid or reverse diabetes by not eating grains, weight control, and exercise.
Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are different
Don't be confused between the two and readily accept medications and insulin injections to lower blood sugar if you are or become Type 2 diabetic. Type 1 diabetes is a hormonal disease, caused by the destruction of the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. Type 1 diabetics must have insulin to replace what the body does not produce. Type 2 diabetics produce insulin, but the overload of glucose makes it appear that insulin is not enough or is not working. If you avoid the overconsumption of grains, your body's insulin production is likely enough to normalize your blood sugar.
