Type 2 Diabetes Can Be Reversed

Diabetes: What is it?

The following information is for educational purposes only and is meant to 
complement any medical treatment, not to prescribe or diagnose any condition. 
Please consult with your doctor before starting any medical or nutritional program.




With the invention of all our modern and refined processing for foods we have seen 
an increase in diabetes in our world. Some of the races that have diabetes in large 
numbers are the Hawaiians and the Native American Indians. Their bodies have a 
hard time adapting to the modern foods. More than any other disease, diabetes can 
be managed quite well with nutrition.

There are two types of diabetes: the first, diabetes insipidus, is more rare and has to 
do with a deficiency in the pituitary hormone called vasopressin. The other 
possibility is that the kidneys have an inability to respond properly to that hormone. 
People with this form of diabetes have several symptoms that make it stand out: 
they have tremendous thirst and they urinate large amounts regardless of how 
much they drink, and this shows us the weakness in the kidneys.

Diabetes Mellitus Type I is often called insulin-dependent diabetes It occurs at a 
young age and is sometimes called "Juvenile Diabetes." It is often caused by a viral 
attack on the system, but most experts are of the opinion that the body's immune 
system is weak when this occurs. With the destruction of the beta cells in the 
pancreas which manufactures the insulin, the body is unable to utilize glucose, the 
main food for the body. Consequently, the level of glucose is high in the blood since 
the body can't absorb it. This is often called "insulin resistance." The diabetic's 
blood becomes "too thick" or "sticky" and this causes blood clots or thromboses that 
damage blood vessels.

This can lead to the creation of excessive levels of free radicals (oxidants which 
break down the body faster) and makes the person more susceptible to the 
following problems: Diabetics have a larger risk of kidney disease, arteriosclerosis, 
blindness, heart disease or nerve diseases, as well as being more prone to 
infections. This is because of their body's resistance to insulin, which is the 
hormone that actually drives the glucose into the tissue and cells as a nutrient. 
When this does not happen the body becomes metabolically weak. The glucose 
molecules engage in an abnormal coupling with body proteins, a step called 
"glycosylation." Consequently, this disrupts the protein's ability to function 
biochemically and further weakens the immune system.

Some of the more common symptoms are abnormal thirst, again; irritability; 
weakness; fatigue; excessive urination; extreme loss of appetite or excessive 
hunger, and in the worst cases, vomiting and nausea. Some of these diabetics can 
have hyperglycemia type symptoms, which is too much glucose in their blood or at 
other times hypoglycemia when there is too low blood sugar. Both conditions can be 
serious. The worst of all these conditions is hypoglycemia, which can come from 
just missing a meal, or too much exertion or an insulin overdose. The symptoms 
could be dizziness, confusion, excessive sweating, and if not treated may lead to a 
coma. With hyperglycemia it could look the same as far as the symptoms, with not 
being able to keep down fluids as one of the danger signs. This means there is too 
much blood sugar in the system. It is more common during an illness and could also 
result in a coma. These two can be serious medical emergencies with life and death 
consequences.

A poor diet may be one of the biggest factors leading to diabetes. It often occurs 
with people who are overweight or who eat a diet high in refined sugar, highly 
processed foods, low in fiber, with too many complex carbohydrates and with too 
much meat, and who don't exercise.

The second category is Type II or non-insulin dependent diabetes, and more often 
occurs when people are older, and usually with people whose family may have a 
history of diabetes. This disorder is a little different in that the pancreas does 
produce insulin, but for some reason the insulin is not effective. Some of the 
common symptoms are poor vision; fatigue; frequent urination; skin infections, and 
slow healing of wounds as well as unusual thirst, drowsiness, and tingling or 
numbness in the feet. This disease is also linked to a poor diet. The National 
Institute of Health says that there are twenty to twenty-five million people with 
diabetes type problems, many have undetected Type II (some five million). Diabetes 
is the third leading cause of death in America. It can be detected with a simple urine 
test.
