Some Very Basic Information About Diabetes

As I explained in my other posts, I am not a physician or health care provider, nor am I an expert on the subject of diabetes, but I have conducted exhaustive research and  have a good grasp on the subject. Much of what I have learned about diabetes is gained from the fact that a family member was diagnosed as being pre-diabetic nearly three years ago.

Diabetes is best explained by saying that it is a disease–but not a disease about the hormone insulin. It is a disease of the pancreas, the organ that manufactures insulin. Insulin has the ability to collect all the sugar (sucrose) and carbohydrates that we consume on a daily basis and it converts it into glucose. Insulin is also kind of like a delivery van. It carries the glucose to our body tissues where the glucose is absorbed by the tissue cells. The cells convert glucose into energy. No glucose, no energy!

Type 2 Diabetes

Up until recently, medical science was baffled as to why the pancreas slows down in its insulin production and why the body cells seem reluctant to accept all of the glucose that is available. This condition is known as type 2 diabetes.This form of the disease usually requires a modification in the diet and medication. When insulin is in extremely short supply, insulin injections are called for.

Type 1 Diabetes

In some cases the pancreas stops production of any insulin at all and treatment calls for medication and insulin shots for the remainder of the person’s life.

Diabetic Symptoms

Many of the symptoms of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are similar. In both types, there is too much glucose in the blood and not enough in the cells of your body. High glucose levels in Type I are due to a lack of insulin because the insulin- producing cells in the pancreas have been destroyed. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body’s cells become resistant to insulin that is being produced. Either way, your cells aren’t getting the glucose that they need, and your body lets you know by giving you these signs and symptoms:

  1. Frequent urination
  2. Being thirsty all the time
  3. Losing weight without even trying
  4. Being overly weak and tired most of the time
  5. A tingling sensation in the hands, legs and feet
  6. Blurred vision
  7. Dry, itchy skin
  8. Cuts and infections that take forever to heal

This is a partial list, but I think you get the picture.

So Is There are Cure For This Dreaded Disease?

No doubt you health care provider has told you that diabetes has no cure. That’s a bunch of crap! Thousands of people just like you have reversed their diabetes that they stopped taking medications and insulin shots. But the media and the drug companies seem to be conspiring to keep this information from you. Why…?

Follow the money!

Sales of diabetes-related drugs amounts to a Multi-Billion Dollar business. Natural cures are becoming plentiful and this has the drug manufacturers in a quandry. You can not patent thnings that grown in farmer’s fields or on trees.

And the mainstream media would suffer because the drug companies spend Hundreds of Millions of Dollars on advertising!

Margie’s Story

As I mentioned in my first post, my wife Margie was diagnosed as being pre-diabetic several months ago. Well this tough old gal decided she was not going on drug or insulin therapy and she began studying diet plans. Her doctor suggested she try a low carb diet but Margie went way beyond that. She set up a diet what was practically no carbs for several months. She completely avoided eating any of the “white” foods like potatoes, white rice, wheat flour and most assuredly–sugar.

Granted, it has been tough on her, but her determination won out over all else. Not only is her blood sugar down within acceptable limits, she lost over 50 pounds! For the past month she has been giving away her “FAT” clothes. She went from a size 18 to a size six in most of her new outfits.

No, I’m not a doctor but here’s what one respected physician says, ““How long can we as a profession afford to keep our heads in the sand regarding the benefits of low carb diets for diabetics?” Dr Richard Bernstein, Author of “Dr. Berstein’s Diabetes Solutions”

My Tip For Today…

So…my tip for today is to begin your recovery by adopting a strict low carb diet. Seriously…you must do this if you have any hope of getting out of the clutches of the Drug Lords.

Future Posts…

My next post will introduce you to a respected scientist and microbiologist who sent shock waves through the health care community with his discovery!
