The Scary Results of the Type 2 Diabetes Tsunami in Australia


Here’s another scary prediction about the results of the diabetes epidemic, this one from Australia:

The rising tsunami of diabetes in Sydney’s western suburbs will overwhelm hospitals within 15 years and specialist factories will need to be built to perform amputations.

SMH: Diabetes Threatens to Overwhelm Western Sydney Hospitals as Obesity Epidemic Rages

This is clearly not just a problem in Australia, the type 2 diabetes epidemic is a worldwide tsunami.

Luckily there’s a very possible solution. Stop recommending people to eat more of the foods that raise the blood sugar the most (carbohydrates). And stop telling people to avoid foods that do not raise blood sugar (fat, meat).

If you’re taking insulin for your diabetes be careful when switching to a low-carb diet. It’s a very powerful tool for lowering your insulin requirements and stabilizing your blood sugar. This means you’ll have to immediately adapt (lower) your insulin doses as needed, to avoid low blood sugars.

Watch the segment above for the experiences of Hanna Boëthius, it’s a shorter piece of a longer interview we did last year. Continue Reading →

“Diabetes Emerges as Japan’s Hidden Scourge”


Diabetes is “surging” in Japan, with a 65 percent increase in the last decade. The cause is not certain, but it could be because of an increase in sugar consumption and processed foods, on top of a high rice consumption.

Framingham and the Muddy Waters – Dr. Jeffry Gerber4.9 out of 5 stars5 star95%4 star0%3 star5%2 star0%1 star0%20 ratings2033:15

How do you know if you’re at risk for heart disease or not? Traditional cholesterol panels are not usually very helpful – but they should not be ignored completely either.

What may matter most of all is something discovered by the now retired 94-year-old doctor Joseph R. Kraft. He discovered a very strong link between heart disease and diabetes type 2… so strong that he said this:

Those with cardiovascular disease not identified with diabetes… are simply undiagnosed.

It’s quite an interesting story, and at the recent Low Carb Vail conference Dr. Jeffry Gerber told it effectively. The presentation, shot with 4 cameras and with the slides edited in, and including captions, is now available on the member site.
