Type 2 Diabetes

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015

Type 2 diabetes is nearly always a preventable disease and is usually reversible using lifestyle strategies by themselves. There are dozens of medications available to treat elevated blood sugar levels, but nearly all of them have common potentially serious "side effects." There are also a wide range of nutritional supplements that are equally effective and far safer that will be reviewed.

The importance of a low carbohydrate diet, stress reduction, regular exercise, getting 8 hours of sleep at night, avoiding toxic chemicals, managing weight, and having meaningful purpose in life are the keys to successful treatment.

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.

Diet Sodas Increase Risk of Type 2 Diabetes


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.

Scientists Uncover New Treatment for Diabetic Neuropathy


An article published in May of 2012 in Nature Medicine reported that a chemical (methylglyoxal) that is produced excessively in people with painful diabetic neuropathy, appears to attack and modify a protein in nerve endings that causes nerves to become hypersensitive to pain, heat and cold. This may lead to investigating ways to increase an enzyme, glyoxalase, which removes methylglyoxal and could reduce or eliminate pain.

Who needs this when the treatment for painful diabetic neuropathy has already been discovered, is inexpensive, safe, and works in just a few 15 minute treatments with infrared light?
