Why Type 2 Diabetes Is a Reversible Dietary Disease

man is measuring the level of glucose in the blood

Diabetes associations repeatedly tell the story that type 2 diabetes is a chronic and progressive disease. It is inevitable, like getting older. As much as we would like to stop the process, it is impossible. There is no hope to change its course. It cannot be prevented and cannot be reversed.

However, multiple studies and common sense conclusively show that this assertion is false. It is only a carefully crafted deception. Continue Reading →

Children Eating Excessive Amounts of Sugar Develop Diseases Associated with Alcoholism

White sugar

Children are now developing fatty liver (which used to mainly affect alcoholics) and type 2 diabetes, as a result of excessive sugar consumption.

This is a terrible trend that Dr. Robert Lustig predicts might bring about the downfall of the social security and healthcare systems, unless some drastic measures are taken to combat this:

Low Carb the Best for Weight Loss and Managing Type 2 Diabetes


A delicious and healthy low-carb meal

There are many myths surrounding low carb. It’s about time to bust them all, and realize that it is proven to be a highly effective and healthy method for managing type 2 diabetes and losing weight: Opinion: It’s Time to Clear Up the Misinformation About Low-Carb Diets

‘The most amazing benefit of the low-carbohydrate diet was the reduction in the patients [with type-2 diabetes] medication levels, which was more than double the amount than the volunteers following the lifestyle program with the high-carbohydrate diet plan’, says the lead investigator, Associate Professor Grant Brinkworth.

These researchers are now suggesting that the dietary guidelines need a rethink.

UK: Number of Type 2 Diabetics Tripled in Twenty Years

Diagnosis diabetes  and pills.

The number of people suffering from type 2 diabetes went from 700,000 to 2.8 million in the UK – in only twenty years. Along with it came a doubling of the obesity rate, and there seems to be no end to this in sight:

BBC News: Type 2 Diabetes Numbers Treble, Cardiff University Finds

Arguably, the main culprit in the twin epidemics type 2 diabetes and obesity is the increased proportion of sugar and other carb-rich junk in the diet. Focus on reducing this, and the epidemic could halt, or even reverse, as is the case for many individuals already.

Another Study: Type 2 Diabetes Can Be Reversed

Type 2 diabetes can be reversed, according to yet another study. It’s not a chronic or progressive disease, that’s just what happens when it’s treated wrong.

Medpage Today: Intensive Therapy Put T2D in Remission

Note that the lifestyle program wasn’t even very effective, as it focused on cutting all calories. Just removing the food that turns into sugar in the body (carbohydrates) is far more targeted and thus likely a more effective approach.

Also, the smart medications used in the trial (metformin and acarbose) were combined with night-time insulin. The additional insulin may lower blood glucose short therm, but it’s likely counterproductive long term. Type 2 diabetes is characterized by insulin resistance, which is likely caused by frequently high insulin levels.

This study is just a sign of what is very possible – type 2 diabetes reversal. There’s likely a much more effective way to do it though, using a ketogenic low-carb diet (ideally with addition of intermittent fasting):

To be frank, it’s not very helpful to treat a dietary disease with medications. The solution can be much simpler – remove excess sugars from your diet, and you remove the excess sugar from your body.
