Diet Sodas Increase Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

submitted by: admin on 01/09/2017

A French study on 66,000 middle aged women over 14 years that was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in February of 2013, showed that drinking 12 oz per week of a diet soda increased the risk for type 2 diabetes by 33%. Increasing the amount to 20 oz per week increased the risk to 66%.

It is interesting that the American Diabetes Association and the American Dietetic Association both recommend diet sodas for people who are obese and who have type 2 diabetes.

The likely mechanism is that when a person consumes a diet beverage that the brain anticipates that sugar is coming into the blood stream. When this happens insulin is secreted to handle the load of suger that is expected, but it never comes and consequently blood sugar levels drop and make us hungry.

 

 

 

Take Dr. Saputo's Type 2 Diabetes Health Assessment

 

 

Dr. Saputo's Type 2 Health Assessment assesses what you what your risk factors are for type 2 diabetes, what are doing to control your diabetes in terms of drugs, supplements, and lifestyle, and reviews medications that can predispose to developing type 2 diabetes.
 
Type 2 diabetes is usually a preventable and reversible disease once it has come on. It develops largely because of poor lifestyle habits related to diet, exercise, sleep, stress, weight, and toxic exposures (includes pharmaceutical drugs). While mainstream medicine relies mostly on drugs to manage blood sugar levels, all of these drugs have side effects, many of which are serious and even life-threatening. Dr. Saputo recommends lifestyle, dietary, and supplements as treatment for type 2 diabetes as strategies before using pharmaceutical drugs.
