Type 2 diabetes is almost always reversible and this is almost ridiculously easy to prove. Once we understand type 2 diabetes, then the solution becomes pretty simple.
Latest scientific researchers have revealed that Type 2 diabetes develops under the following condition:
- Excess calories leads to excess fat in the liver
- As a result, the liver responds poorly to insulin and produces too much glucose
- Excess fat in the liver is passed on to the pancreas, causing the insulin producing cells to fail
- Losing less than 1 gram of fat from the pancreas by eating less can re-start the normal production of insulin, reversing Type 2 diabetes. To do this it is necessary to lose around 10-15kg of body weight.
- This reversal of diabetes remains possible for at least 10 years after the onset of the condition
The most important thing, of course, is to lose weight. But people with type 2 diabetes find very hard to lose weight.
Here are some good reasons why the standard advice of “eat less, exercise more” doesn’t deliver results for people living with type 2 diabetes.
Reason 1: With type 2 diabetes, insulin is high, and insulin is a fat-storage hormone
If you don’t believe please go and check your fasting insulin level. A normal fasting blood insulin level is below 5, but ideally you’ll want it below 3 µIU/mL.
Reason 2: Typically recommended eating frequent meals keeps your blood sugar and insulin levels consistently high.
If you keep giving your body food, it has no incentive to burn fat.
Sadly, these guidelines seem to serve the medical practitioners more than the patients. When patients are on diabetes medications, blood sugar levels are chronically suppressed by medications! This approach does little to combat the underlying cause of the disease.
Reason 3: Type 2 diabetes medications can drive weight gain
Insulin, for example is notorious for causing weight gain. Medications make diabetes looks better, since you can only see the blood sugars. We’ve been pretending that the symptom is the disease. That’s the main reason most doctors think type 2 diabetes a chronic and progressive disease. We’ve been using the wrong treatment. We’ve been prescribing drugs for a dietary disease. No wonder it doesn’t work.
If we have too much sugar in the body, then get rid of it or don’t put more. Anything you eat can be converted to sugar in the liver. So, don’t simply hide it away with medications by moving the sugar from the blood (where we can see) into the body (where we cannot see).
Reversing type 2 diabetes is pretty simple but it requires dedication, discipline and continued effort and a positive attitude towards health and life. The main steps are:
Step 1 – Don’t put the sugar in (change your diet)
The first step is to eliminate all sugar and packaged foods from your diet. Sugar has no nutritional value and can therefore be eliminated.
Step 2 – Burn off what’s already in (fasting and exercise)
Fasting is the simplest and fastest method to force your body to burn sugar for energy. When you eat, your body stores food energy. When you fast, your body burns food energy. If you simply lengthen out your periods of fasting, you can burn off the stored sugar. Both what you eat and when you eat are critical to achieve optimal health.
Step 3 – Stress Less, Sleep More (create an anti-inflammatory internal environment)
For those who cannot reverse diabetes by themselves we invite to participate in our Diabetes Reverse Program, which will provide the Education, Guidance, Support and Tools necessary for successful Weight Loss and Type 2 Diabetes Reversal.
Diabetes Reverse Program is a patient-centered health restoration care model to reverse diabetes, rather than just disease management.
Reversing diabetes is a way of life with sustainable lifestyle habits, diet-wise, physically, and spiritually.
