How to reverse diabetes type 2 – the video course

mayo 18, 2018

Is type-2 diabetes a reversible disease we’re told that this is a chronic and progressive disorder that means that once you develop type 2 diabetes you’re gonna have it for life and there’s nothing you can do about it you’re gonna be on medications you’re gonna be on insulin and then you’re gonna develop the complications blindness nerve damage amputations heart attacks strokes kidney damage dialysis the whole works it’s inevitable but is it really imagine a world where type 2 diabetes is a simple reversible disorder where a simple dietary maneuver can reverse your diabetes in a matter of weeks the American Diabetes Association of course disagrees they say right on their website that it’s a fact that for most people type 2 diabetes is a progressive disease so you might as well forget about it don’t even try to get better it’s hopeless they’re telling you there’s no hope but we can look at certain examples and we can see that this is actually not true at all let me give you some of these examples bariatric surgery bariatric surgery is also called weight loss surgery or stomach stapling what they do is they take your stomach and they cut it to the size of a walnut so you really just can’t eat because you’re not eating you’re gonna lose a lot of weight but what happens to the diabetes well let’s look at this study here in this study they randomized two groups of people one group of people stayed on their medications and got the best medical therapy available the other group got weight loss surgery on the horizontal axis is time over 12 months and the vertical axis is a number of medications that these people were taking you can see that the number of medications that people took while doing the best medical therapy available really didn’t change they kept a the same number of medications they’re really know better than they were when they started then they were at the end but look at the weight loss surgery grew very quickly within a matter of months they’re coming off all their medications and it keeps going quite 12 months many of these people are off of all their medications and their blood sugars are completely normal that’s amazing wasn’t this a chronic and progressive disorder wasn’t this a disorder where there’s no treatment and there’s nothing you can do it’ll get worse well not really not according to this study it looks like diabetes is a disease that’s reversible but better than that it’s quickly reversible and even other types of weight loss surgeries such as gastric banding have the same benefits gastric banding is a procedure where they put a belt inside your stomach and tighten it so that you can’t eat and again what you see here is that the diabetes very quickly reverses and it stays gone so this is not a chronic and progressive disorder this is a reversible disorder I’m not saying that by a gastric banding or weight loss surgery is the answer for everybody but it simply points to the fact that the situation is different and this is a reversible disease let’s look at another example we can look at fasting fasting is a dietary maneuver where you don’t eat anything for a certain period of time I had this patient here Richard who came to me for treatment of his diabetes he had been diabetic for ten years he was taking about 70 units of insulin and he was developing complications he was getting eye disease he was getting kidney disease so he changed his diet we put him on a little carbohydrate diet and we gave him some simple tips and we included some intermittent fasting in his regimen over a period of months he lost about 50 pounds and his diabetes got incredibly better we took him off all of his insulin took him off all of his medications and his blood sugars are even two years out now he’s still on no medications and his blood sugars are doing amazing so in fact this is a reversible disease fasting seems to lead to a reversal of his diabetes and this is not a new finding in fact if we go back almost a hundred years dr. Elliott Joslin perhaps the most famous diabetes specialist in history wrote this in the Canadian Medical Journal that temporary periods of undernutrition are helpful in the treatment of diabetes will probably be acknowledged by all after these two years of experience with fasting so what happened was that he had been using fasting for two years and he thought it was so amazingly great that it’s gonna be obvious everybody’s gonna know this there were a few problems of course at the time he didn’t differentiate between type 1 and type 2 diabetes while it’s very beneficial for type 2 diabetes it really doesn’t impact type 1 very much and with the discovery of insulin a few years later all focus shifted to insulin and everybody forgot about these dietary therapies recently in the United Kingdom dr. Taylor performed a study called the counterpoint study and there he put people on very low-calorie diets while it’s not fasting is very close and look at these results in this group the blood Sugar’s went from nine point six to five point nine in seven days seven days his Sugar’s have gone back to normal what happened to this idea that it’s chronic it’s progressive you’ll always be on medication it’s simply not true there’s another example we can give we can look at the example of very low carbohydrate diets or so-called ketogenic diets let me give you a case I had a 27 year old graduate student she was actually studying physiology and she was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes her hemoglobin a1c was 10 point four percent this is a three month average of her blood Sugar’s the diagnosis of diabetes happens at six point five percent so ten point four percent is very high her doctors were very concerned of course started her on three medications right away being only twenty seven she didn’t want to stay on medications for the rest of her life so she looked on the internet and decided that she would follow a ketogenic diet well she very quickly lost about 20 pounds and at her three-month checkup her hemoglobin a1c was five point five percent well within the normal range and clearly not diabetic better she had taken herself off of all her medications as soon as she started so in this case it looked like her type-2 diabetes was essentially cured Wow that’s not what we are told right but we all know this is true we all know that the type 2 diabetes is completely reversible for example if somebody comes up to you and says you know what I lost 50 pounds and my diabetes went away you’d say wow that’s great terrific good for you you wouldn’t say to them no you’re lying to me the American Diabetes Association says it’s chronic and progressive get back on your medications no of course not so it’s immediately obvious that this is just a lie type 2 diabetes is not chronic and it’s not progressive it’s reversible but what about all the cases about people on medications do you ever hear people say hmm I started my insulin or I started my medications and now I’m so much better I took myself off no not really if you take medications you’re generally on it for life right or what about the standard low fat diet nobody ever comes up to me and says you know I went to my dietician I started a low-fat diet and now I’m so much better I’m off all my medications I’ve seen reasons of patience and that doesn’t happen so in those cases the diabetes is not cured so actually there are treatments that lead to a cure and there are treatments that do not lead to a cure so those that lead to a cure bariatric surgery fasting and very low carb diets and these treatments do not lead to a cure insulin other drugs a low fat diet you’ll never guess of course which direction all our current treatment protocols and research are heading – they’re all heading towards the path of no cure and that’s why they tell you it’s a chronic and progressive disease but it’s not this is amazing news this is amazing because type 2 diabetes in fact it curable and reversible disease the fact that treatments exist means that there is hope for all of us drugs however cannot cure a dietary disease the cure must be a diet the right diet you
