Descriere

A new and different way to combat diabetes is published for the first time. In this second book of the 3-book series you will discover a blue-print for avoiding or ameliorating T2D – a simple step-by-step plan that can make a huge difference to your life and well-being.

Other books that have attempted to give solutions for combating T2D have mostly failed because they are not based on the true root cause of the disease. There really is only one way to combat T2D, based on the very latest research that is now coming to light.

Be prepared for some surprises as you read the book – some wide held beliefs are laid to rest, and your life will never be the same once you see through the myths and deceptions. For example, you will discover why vigorous exercise and why low-carbohydrate diets are major causes of diabetes and ill-health. Why meat and fish play havoc with blood sugar on a par with sugary foods. And why a high-carb, high-fat diet is best for optimum health, whether or not you have diabetes.

If you already have T2D or pre-diabetes, this book makes essential reading because the ‘No More Diabetes Strategy’ in chapter 11 will be a real life-changer. And if you’re contemplating any kind of bariatric or pancreatic surgery, read this book first – it may save your life.

Unlike other diabetes books, this book ‘Banish Diabetes: Avoid and Stop Diabetes Now’ is not based on any kind of re-hashed, half-baked advice that leaves you no better off. It is based on astounding new breakthrough research that at last gives you a full-proof method for dealing with diabetes that is different to anything else out there. The book is entirely focused on how to avoid and stop T2D in it tracks, and how to live a full life by giving up or minimizing diabetes medications.

2. The Devastating Nature of Diabetes

There are mainly two types of diabetes:

Type 1 diabetes results from the failure of the pancreas to produce enough insulin. This form was previously referred to as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus or juvenile diabetes. The cause is not unknown, it is genetic and/or it is caused by factors that prevent the pancreas from producing sufficient insulin. Type 2 Diabetes can lead to Type 1 Diabetes by gradually wearing down the ability of the pancreas to produce insulin – this book shows how to prevent this from happening.

Type 2 Diabetes begins with insulin resistance, a condition in which cells fail to respond to insulin properly. As the disease progresses a lack of insulin may also develop. This form was previously referred to as non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus or adult-onset diabetes. The true root cause of Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) has only recently come to light and by addressing this root cause we can for the first time truly avoid the disease or at the very least stop it getting worse.

There are other so-called types of diabetes, such as type 1.5, type 3, Lada and Gestational Diabetes. In this book the focus is mainly on T2D which is the most common and affects about 95% of cases of diabetes worldwide. But if you are more concerned with Type 1 Diabetes, you are nevertheless urged to read this book as you will discover much information that will help you.

Diabetes is plaguing human society throughout the world. A hundred years ago the disease was relatively rare, albeit usually fatal. Now days, diabetes (types 1 and 2) can be treated with various kinds of therapies and medications thus making it possible to live a reasonably normal life. The big tragedy is that millions of people are on the road to T2D and an inferior quality of life, and yet T2D is entirely preventable if you know what to do.

It is estimated that nearly half of all adults worldwide are either pre-diabetic or diabetic. It has been predicted that by 2050, one in three Americans will have full blown Type 2 Diabetes if current trends continue (a staggering thought).

Even more staggering is the fact that a third of slim American adults have prediabetes. Yes, one in three slim Americans are actually pre-diabetic (source: Dr. Robert Lustig, professor of pediatric endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco, USA).

And according to the American Diabetes Association, over 25% of people who have full T2D don’t know it. This means that many people are becoming obese, feeling ill & tired, and living a poor quality of life without knowing they are diabetic and without knowing they could vastly and easily improve their health.

Here are five surprising facts about diabetes:

Fact 1: According to the American Diabetes Association, about 30 million people in the United States have diabetes, which is nearly 10% percent of the population. And over 8 million of those people have undiagnosed T2D.

Fact 2: In the United States T2D is the 7th leading cause of death: Diabetes kills more than 76,000 people in the United States each year, making it the 7th leading cause of death, after Alzheimer’s disease. Also, diabetes is the biggest cause of heart disease.

Fact 3: There is an alarming rise in the number of young people under the age of 20 who are diagnosed with diabetes. Over 200,000 youths are diagnosed with the disease each year in the United States alone. The rates of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are increasing in adolescents.

Fact 4: Diabetes affects some communities more than others: Diabetes can strike anyone, but some ethnic groups are more at risk. A study published in the journal Current Diabetes Report focused on the epidemiology of diabetes and its complications based on ethnicity. Researchers found that the prevalence of diabetes among Native Americans is 33 percent higher than the population at large, while Asian Americans have a higher prevalence of 8.4 percent. African-Americans, Hispanics, and Pacific Islanders are also at higher risk. The reasons for this are explained later in the book.

Fact 5: Diabetes causes 11 million emergency hospital visits in the U.S. each year: It can cause nephropathy, retinopathy, neuropathy, stroke, and heart disease. This is because high blood sugar levels cause damage and oxidative stress throughout the body. In 2009, there were 11,492,000 emergency room visits due to diabetes complications, according to the ‘Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’. Now, ten years later, the number of emergency room visit due to diabetes is much higher.

During the next ten years, in the 2020’s, it is thought that Asia and Africa will have a higher incidence of diabetes, compared to Western Europe and North America. Diabetes is no longer a disease of the ‘developed world’ – all sections of society are affected.

By simply following the advice in this book, you my dear reader can do a lot to never acquire diabetes or at the very least halt the disease and greatly ameliorate your diabetes. If you have Type 2 Diabetes (T2D), this book will help you dispense with diabetes therapies and medications and lead a full and normal life. The strategy that is explained in the following pages is truly full-proof because it addresses the root cause of diabetes.

Note: It is not being suggested that you necessarily stop using prescribed diabetes medications, but by following the advice in this book you will be able to monitor your progress and gradually dispense with the medications according to the progress you make.

The problem here is that diabetes medications are designed to treat the symptoms, but they don’t treat the actual disease. Such medications don’t halt, reverse, cure, or even ameliorate diabetes itself. Furthermore, diabetes affects many aspects of health. Consequently, a huge pharmaceuticals and health-care industry has grown up around diabetes and its related complications.

Possible health complications relating to diabetes include:

Cardiovascular disease.

Nerve damage (neuropathy).

Kidney damage (nephropathy).

Eye damage (retinopathy).

Foot damage.

Skin conditions.

Hearing impairment.

Alzheimer's disease.

Shortened lifespan.

The list of medications for types 1 & 2 diabetes is almost endless and runs to hundreds of brand names, many of which are either useless or unnecessary. It is often much more effective to focus on dietary and lifestyle changes rather than taking medications which may do more harm than good when their side effects are taken into account.

3. The Only Way to Combat Diabetes

In the first book in this 3-book series we saw how some skeletal muscle and liver cells become insulin resistant when the amount of glucose molecules in the bloodstream becomes too low in relation to free fatty acids that are always circulating in the blood.

When this happens, FFA’s (Free Fatty Acids) are given to mitochondria in muscle and liver cells instead of glucose, their preferred kind of fuel. This happens as a last resort to prevent body muscles from collapsing from a lack of fuel, and putting life at risk. Thus, when fat is fed to muscle and liver cells in place of glucose, this is an emergency action to keep the body going.

When fatty acids are fed to muscle and liver cells, the fatty acids become ‘jammed in the entrance’ to the cell, and henceforth such cells can no longer receive glucose. Metaphorically, the fatty acid causes the door lock into the cell to become locked. Technically what happens is that when a cell that much prefers glucose is forced to burn fat, this ‘fat burning’ produces metabolites that harm the internal structure of the cell. As a result, when insulin comes calling to deliver glucose, the cell cannot open its door to insulin.

This is how skeletal muscle and liver cells are made resistant to insulin, and over time the number of cells that become permanently resistant to accepting glucose goes up, thus causing chronic high blood glucose and the risk of T2D.

Apart from the diet, other factors such as smoking, alcohol, medications, drugs, air pollution, stress, and intense exercise can also cause insulin resistance. This happens because such factors can make the level of glucose in the blood plummet. For example, it is well established that stress, smoking and alcohol greatly increase blood glucose. This elicits an insulin response which brings glucose down to below the norm, and this in turn reduces the amount of glucose available as a fuel, thus resulting in the use of fat as an emergency fuel in some of our skeletal muscle and liver cells. This causes insulin resistance in the cells affected.

Similarly, air pollution, which has been extensively studied, is shown to significantly increase blood glucose. "In conclusion, the findings suggest that air pollution increases the levels of [blood glucose]. The effects of air pollutants on [blood glucose] were stronger in female, elderly, and overweight people". Source: Chen L, et al, Air pollution and fasting blood glucose: A longitudinal study in China, Sci Total Environ. 2016 Jan 15; 541:750-5.

"About 3.2 million incident cases of diabetes were contributed by ambient PM2.5 [air pollution] globally, as well as about 8.2 million disability-adjusted life years and 26,105 deaths from diabetes". Source: Benjamin Bowe, MPH, et al, The 2016 global and national burden of diabetes mellitus attributable to PM2·5 air pollution, The Lancet, vol 2, issue 7, pe301-e312, July 2018.

Exercise is a big cause of insulin resistance and significantly increases the risk of diabetes. For more information on this topic see the chapter ‘How Exercise Causes Insulin Resistance’.

Here is a list of factors that affect the level of blood glucose, as given by the American Diabetes Association at www.diabetes.org:

Quote

What can make your blood glucose rise?

1. Too much food, like a meal or snack with more carbohydrates than usual.

2. Not being active.

3. Not enough insulin or oral diabetes medications.

4. Side effects from other medications, such as steroids, anti-psychotic medications.

5. Illness – your body releases hormones to fight illness, and they raise blood glucose levels.

6. Stress, which can produce hormones that raise blood glucose levels.

7. Short- or long-term pain, like pain from a sunburn – your body releases hormones that raise glucose levels.

8. Menstrual periods, which cause changes in hormone levels.

9. Dehydration.

What can make your blood glucose fall?

10. Not enough food, like a meal or snack with fewer carbohydrates, missing a meal or snack.

11. Alcohol, especially on an empty stomach – this makes glucose go up and then plummet.

12. Badly managed insulin therapy and oral diabetes medications.

13. Side effects from other medications.

14. More exercise than usual.

Unquote

There is a common thread running through the above 14 factors affecting glucose. Can you spot it? Yes, you guessed it, the common thread is that all these 14 factors cause glucose (blood sugar) to fall too low.

When looking at the above list, remember that factors that make blood glucose go up significantly will have the effect of triggering an insulin response that makes glucose plummet below the norm, usually for several hours. This is when some muscle and liver cells will be made permanently resistant to glucose.

Another factor is the combined effect of the food you eat. For example, if you are stressed, drink alcohol, smoke, or take medications, and on the same day you eat junk food carbs, the combination of the two scenarios can significantly make blood glucose plummet.

The effect of the diet on glucose is far greater than the effect of all other non-dietary factors combined. This applies particularly if junk food is consumed regularly and is not masticated well. Note: Throughout this book the term ‘junk food’ refers to sugary foods and processed-carb foods, such as cookies, sweet desserts, waffles, sugary drinks, refined flour foods, etc.

As an aside, good mastication is crucial to combating diabetes and achieving good health generally. This issue is examined in detail in book 3 of this 3-book series.

"In normoglycaemic [non-diabetic] group, postprandial blood glucose concentration upon thorough mastication was significantly lower, due to early-phase insulin secretion. This simple lifestyle modification of thorough mastication can be a useful preventive measure against diabetes in people with a strong family history and other risk factors for diabetes who have not yet developed diabetes or prediabetes". Source: Vinayak Madhu, et al, Mastication Frequency and Postprandial Blood Sugar Levels in Normoglycaemic and Dysglycaemic Individuals: A Cross- Sectional Comparative Study, J Clin Diagn Res. 2016 Jul; 10(7): OC06–OC08.

A regular junk food diet will cause far more insulin resistance compared to smoking, alcohol, taking medications, etc. even if you do all these things on a regular basis. But you need to do both to combat diabetes: you need to follow a high-carb, high-fat diet as explained throughout this three-book series, and you need to avoid non-dietary factors that promote big drops in blood glucose.

Technical note: A normal fasting (no food for eight hours) blood glucose level is between about 70 and 99 mg/dL. A normal blood glucose level two hours after eating is less than 140 mg/dL. When we talk about low blood glucose in this book we are talking about a level below about 75 mg/dl (4.1625 mmol/L) whether or not fasting. Do not confuse this with ‘reactive hypoglycemia’ also known as ‘postprandial hypoglycemia’. Reactive hypoglycemia is a dangerously low level of glucose that can result in a medical emergency and can be anything below 70 mg/dL (3.88 mmol/L).

Apart from the diet, here are the main non-dietary factors that push your blood glucose out of quilter, thus causing insulin resistance:

Note: Clearly, menstruation cannot be avoided but it is listed as a factor nevertheless (more about this later).

You may be wondering why ‘pregnancy’ is not listed as a non-dietary factor that adversely affects blood glucose. It is quite usual for pregnancy to make blood glucose go up, particularly towards the end of the pregnancy (typically around the 24th week). Doctors refer to this phenomenon as ‘gestational diabetes’. This is a misnomer because so-called gestational diabetes has nothing to do with diabetes or with insulin resistance.

During pregnancy the body undergoes major hormonal changes so as to cater for the unborn child (the developing baby has a growing need for plenty of glucose towards the end of term). So the mother’s body undergoes hormonal changes that mainly affect the pancreas because this organ makes the hormones insulin and glucagon that regulate blood glucose. It would seem that the hormonal changes caused by pregnancy reduce the amount of insulin secreted by the pancreas. This has the effect of increasing the amount of glucose in the blood so as to not deprive the baby’s voracious needs for glucose.

"Throughout pregnancy, getting the appropriate
