I Read On Facebook That You Can Cure Diabetes, Is That True?

Did you know that in secret underground labs, staffed by hundreds of health care workers, who were fired for trying to tell the truth and are now being hunted by hit squads, sent by big pharma, are taking their lives in their own hands on a daily basis to produce cures for most diseases out there.

And if you just sign a disclaimer that you don’t work for the pharmaceutical industry, watch a video and then click through about 5 dozen pages (obviously to weed out those hit squad members and the… read more

That's where I mostly disagree.

The average person "binges on carbs" everyday.

If you follow the national food guide, it is the recommendation of the Dietary Health Experts that you should consume 300 carbs a day as part of a healthy diet.

We got diabetes because something went defective. And yes our crappy eating may have triggered it or brought it on sooner, but it was not underlying cause.

Because if it was then the incidence of diabetes would be closer to 50 or 60% of the population instead of 10%. There is no straight line between eating crap and diabetes for "most that eat that way".

And I do agree that "some" who get control and lose weight improve their insulin resistance which will allow them to eat a "few more carbs" then before, but again that is not universal.

There is a whole (physiology) out there that has shown "in some diabetics" reducing the amount of fat around the pancreas and the liver will improve insulin resistance.

My BMI when diagnosed was almost 30. Today it is 22.8 - I lost 60 pounds over the period of 1 year and have kept it off for coming on 5 years. So if "I" belonged to that (cohort) that had the fat around the organs it would be likely that I would have corrected that problem with the weight loss and my insulin resistance would have improved.

(I know nothing changed with my insulin production side of things - a couple of C-Peptide tests spaced 3 years apart showed no significant change - I'm producing a decent quantity of insulin).

Yet despite the weight loss and reduction in body fat, my insulin resistance has stayed effective the same.

In the beginning I could tolerate about 35 carbs maximum before going out of range. With the weight gone and 5 years of a steady 5.4 A1C I can still only hand about 35 carbs or I WILL go out of range.

Diabetes is full of those "sometimes but not always and not for everyone" rules. Because it's metabolic it is as unique as your own DNA/

pends on how you see it you can get your numbers down in normal range and keep it there for years. ARe yo cured? Now you cant go back to a life of binging on carbs. But remember thats what got you in trouble in the first place. If you keep your numbers down in normal range for a few months you can tollerate some carbs it spikes your suger but your body is able to respond quickly but why??

Believe no cure trust only 1 thing your meter move cautiously test often let your meter tell you what is good for you. you need no diet books figure out your own. Now that said once you find what works for you look for like minded stuff on the internet to help. For me that is a missionary's preacher that came down with diabetes 20 years ago. He figured out what works for him. started a youtube channel to help others and it has become a second mission for him he has half a million followers and what he teaches works for me so I watch him. He is ruthful aint selling no pills and fun to watch I took some tips from him he turned me on to toher like minded people and my numbers are heading in the right direction

It’s been my belief for years…that Fatty Liver disease affects the pancreas creating Fatty Pancreas disease due to too much exterior fat. This cellular fat is causing the organs to “underperform” resulting in metabolic diseases like diabetes, et. al.

That said, look into “IM-21”….Interesting stuff…
