How to reverse type 2 diabetes is a hot topic that is still being debated and is shrouded in mystery. Are you a type 2 diabetic? Have you been diagnosed a type 2 diabetic? This article is intended to help you find answers. The information we are providing is evidence-based. This means you can trust that it is coming from a reliable source.
Centuries ago, students were taught that there were only nine planets in the entire universe. Back in those days, because of the limits of scientific equipment, no one dared postulate that there were more planets than the nine that revolved our sun. Fast forward to today. We now know that we live in a galaxy with more than 200 billion stars, and each star has its own planets that orbit around it. Furthermore, we now know that there are over 300 billion galaxies in the universe. It would be laughable, in today’s world, to suggest that there were only nine planets in the entire universe.
Similarly, when there was little research and information about type 2 diabetes, we were told that it should be managed with pharmaceutical drugs and that it was a lifetime disease. Fast forward to today. We don’t just know that this condition can be reversed; we also know that it starts as pre-diabetes and eventually progresses to type 2 diabetes. We know what causes it and we know how it can be reversed and even cured.
What is type 2 diabetes?
A form of sugar called glucose is meant to reach the cells in the body in order to give the body energy. This sugar is then burnt up by the activity of the muscles. The condition where this process is first disrupted in called pre-diabetes. If nothing is done to prevent its progression, the pre-diabetes progresses to type 2 diabetes. So, what happens in this progression? Knowing what actually happens inside your body will help you take steps that many diabetics have taken to reverse their condition and regain good health.
With type 2 diabetes, your pancreas still secrets enough insulin to transport sugar to your blood stream, but your red blood cells are not able to transport the sugar to your muscles. Research by Dr. Sanjay Basu, Ph.D., an epidemiologist, showed that type 2 diabetes is typically caused by over-consumption of refined sugar. My own research, along with research by done by others, confirms this fact. This is why when you are diagnosed a type 2 diabetic, it is after your doctor has you do a blood glucose/sugar test, which determines the amount of sugar in your blood.
Type 2 diabetes does not happen overnight. It takes several years to develop. Over the years, as you consume refined sugar in excess, by your mid-forties, there is a sugar build-up inside your body. As mentioned, your pancreas still works; however, because there is too much sugar in your body, some of that sugar, in liquid form, finds its way into your bloodstream. What happens when we eat sugar and fail to burn it off? It turns into—you guessed it—fat. Some of the excess sugar finds its way into your bloodstream where it converts into fat. The fat coats your blood cells, so even though your pancreas is secreting insulin and the insulin is transporting sugar to your bloodstream, your blood cells are not able to absorb the sugar because they are coated with fat. The sugar cannot penetrate the fat. You are now insulin resistant, or type 2 diabetic. The truth about type 2 diabetes is shrouded in mystery mainly to prevent consumers from knowing the truth. For example, while doing research to find out if type 2 diabetes could be cured or not, I came across a very well-known food scientist based in the US. According to him (his statement is on video for anyone to view), a drug company asked him to write an article on type 2 diabetes for publication in a magazine. When the food scientist handed in his article, the diabetes drug manufacturer declined to publish it saying that if diabetics found out they could cure their condition, they would not buy their drugs.
Now that you know what causes type 2 diabetes, so the question is, how can you reverse it? We offer programs on this website designed to help you accomplish that.
It is not uncommon to find articles written by doctors, mainly those operating online diabetes businesses. They claim that when you have type 2 diabetes, your pancreas’ ability to secrete insulin declines. That is incorrect. Often, the intent is to get you to spend hundreds and even thousands of dollars by enrolling in their diabetes cure program. It is a well-established scientific fact that type 2 diabetes can be reversed with proper diet and exercise. Speak to your doctor about this, and yes, it should not cost you an arm and a leg.
Food and diabetes
It is a long-held believe that when we consume carbohydrates—for example, rice, pasta, white bread, potatoes—they convert into sugar which the body uses for energy. It is not uncommon to read that one can be become type 2 diabetic by eating too many carbohydrates. But is there any evidence of this? Type 2 diabetes is a modern condition brought on by lifestyle choices—namely, what you eat and drink.
Research linking sugar consumption to the weight gain and the increase in cases of type 2 diabetes
Dr. Sanjay Basu Ph.D., an Epidemiologist from Stanford University was cited in the Stanford Medicine newsletter in an article written by Digital (2013): Researchers from Stanford University School of Medicine, the University of California-Berkley, and the University of California-San Francisco examined data on sugar availability and diabetes rates from 175 countries over the past decade. After counting for obesity and a large array of other factors, the researchers found that increased sugar in a population’s food supply was linked to higher diabetes rates, independent of obesity rates. 
FB Hu and VS Malik (2010) put forth: Research suggests that sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) consumption is a risk factor for overweight and obesity as well as several cardio-metabolic conditions, especially T2DM. 
Here is the scientific fact. Elevated sugar levels in your blood are caused by consumption of manufactured foods. These include candies, soft drinks, sweetened milk, artificial drinks, and much more.
Research shows that excess consumption of carbohydrates may lead to weight gain in the form of fat. Fat is a solid mass that does not move around inside your body.
Refined sugar, particularly in soft drinks and other sweetened beverages, is in liquid form. Thus, when it is consumed, it is quickly absorbed by the body and some finds its way into your blood stream where it converts into fat, which then coats your red blood cells preventing them from doing their job, which is to transport the sugar to your muscles for energy. Pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes are predominantly caused by the consumption of refined sugar. Recent research has shown that when there is an increase in the consumption of products made with refined sugar, cases of type 2 diabetes also increase. This is much more so for developing countries. Take West Africa, for example: Years ago, there had relatively few cases of pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes. If you travel through African countries today, most drink shops selling water have more sweet beverages than water for sale.
Diabetes and the evidence
The man accredited as the father of Mathematics, Abn al Haytham, also known as Al Hazeen, taught his students about the importance of evidence-based conclusions. If you want your own evidence that your pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes can be reversed, try our program and draw your own conclusions.
Did you know that there is no evidence that pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes cannot be reversed and cured? Diabetes is diagnosed by the level of sugar in your blood. In the US, it is measured differently than in Canada. See the examples below:
US 100 mg/dL = CAN (5.6 mmol/L )
US 140 mg/dL = CAN (7.8 mmol/L )
How to lower blood sugar with diet
I lowered my blood sugar by taking these steps; and the result was amazing.
- Diet: Remove refined sugar from your diet; otherwise, I can tell you with 100% certainty that your effort will not yield the desired result. Soft drinks are especially high in refined sugar. Some 20-ounce bottles of soft drinks contain over 16 teaspoons of sugar, and a 2-liter bottle has about or 54 teaspoons. Chocolate is bitter, and so to make chocolates or chocolate cake, a huge quantity of sugar is needed. To make a chocolate cake, enough sugar has to be added to balance out the bitterness and more has to be added to sweeten the cake mix. Simply, take refined sugar food products out of your diet.
- Exercise: You can never underestimate the role of exercise. I realize many people don’t like to exercise. Many adults tell me this. Here is a reason why you should exercise regardless of your age. Exercise is a most powerful medicine to help reverse and cure type 2 diabetes. It also reduces your chances of getting heart disease, stroke, kidney failure will all go away. Start slowly and work your way up. The secret is that the exercise must be conducted the correct way or it will yield no benefit to you.
If you are already a diabetic, your doctor will have prescribed a drug to help lower your blood sugar. This is done to prevent you from ending up in the hospital. But if you follow the above two steps properly, your doctor will eventually be able to take you off your diabetes drugs.
How is diabetes reversed?
As a diabetes researcher and lifestyle strategist, my research has shown that pre-diabetes can be reversed and type 2 diabetes can go into remission by using a three-pronged approach. This includes:
- A low-calorie diabetes diet: This facilitates weight loss.
- Exercise for diabetics: Exercise designed for diabetics facilitates the burning off of excess sugar buildup in the body, plus, it helps you achieve weight loss. Once sugar has been burnt off, the body turns to fat for energy. The first of the fat to burn off is the thin layer coating the red blood cells. Once that layer of fat is burned off, red blood cells responsible for carrying sugar to the muscles to be used for energy are exposed and begin to absorb sugar and transport it to the muscles. The cells, which had become insulin-resistant, are restored to insulin-sensitivity. The diabetes is then in remission.
- Vitamins: A diabetic often requires vitamin supplementation. Vitamin supplementation can speed up the effectiveness of the above two methods.
If you ask most experienced medical doctors, they will tell you that pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes can be reversed and there is evidence backing that up. In fact, the International Diabetes Federation’s stated mission is to promote diabetes care and cure worldwide.
