Is there a cure for diabetes? This is a pressing question asked by millions struggling with diabetes. I myself asked the same question when I was diagnosed diabetic. The answer is definitely, yes. A number of researchers as well as publications confirm this fact. Disseminators of evidence that diabetes can be cured include, and are not limited to, the below:
- WebMD, the leading healthcare information provider to medical doctors and healthcare professionals. Doctors and healthcare professionals trust WebMD and so should pre-diabetics and type 2 diabetics. Their article relating our type 2 diabetes cure program is titled: “Secret recipe: How a Chef Cured His Type 2 Diabetes”.
- The results of a clinical research study performed by Natalia McInnes of McMaster University, Ontario were published in The National Post in March 2016. The article is titled “Type 2 diabetes can be cured in four months—if you cut calories and exercise, research shows”. As the title states, studies performed by McInnes show that type 2 diabetes can be cured.
- In a large clinical trial started in 2016, and which is still ongoing in the UK, researchers have found that that type 2 diabetes can be put into remission by following a regime of diet and exercise.
- Lastly, my own research, not to mention that my diabetes was reversed and cured through working with doctors.
The truth about curing diabetes is not being promoted, even though the mission of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF)—which includes Diabetes UK, Diabetes Canada, Diabetes Pakistan, the American Diabetes Association, and others—is to promote diabetes care and cure worldwide. Instead, managing the condition is what is promoted. But most diabetics who die from the condition—one out of two—die while managing their diabetes. Most research on diabetes done by large institutions is not about discovering a cure for diabetes; the research almost exclusively relates to developing new products—such as new blood glucose meters—to be sold to diabetics.
There are two main types of diabetes: Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes.
What is type 1 diabetes?
Type 1 diabetes is a condition whereby the pancreas does not secrete insulin, a hormone responsible for allowing the body to use sugar, which is transported to the red blood cells and further transported to the muscles to be used as energy that fuels the body. Without the natural production of insulin, the diabetic has to inject it manually. Ten percent of all cases of diabetes fall under the category of type 1.
What causes type 1 diabetes?
There are varying opinions as to what causes type 1 diabetes. Most often, victims are diagnosed with this type of diabetes as children. In terms of what causes it, we only know is that the pancreas simply does not secrete insulin. There is clear proof of why the pancreas doesn’t do what it is supposed to do.
Signs and symptoms of type 1 diabetes
The signs and symptoms of type 1 diabetes:
- A strong craving for something sweet
- Rapid weight-loss
- Cuts and wounds take longer to heal
- Blurred vision; which means, the blood sugar level is low
- Feeling tied
- Lack of strength
- Frequent urination
With type 1 diabetes, the food and liquids consumed do not stay inside the body long enough for proper digestion and assimilation. This means that the diabetic does not get enough nutrients from food and drinks, because they quickly pass through the digestive system. (This was also my experience in the period leading up to my being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Many of the symptoms are similar between the two types.)
When you notice any of the above signs and symptoms personally, or observe them in your child, you should visit your doctor immediately. Don’t ignore the signs.
Managing type 1 diabetes
If you have type 1 diabetes, it has to be managed, as there is no known cure for it. Type 1 diabetes is managed by insulin injections and an insulin pump can also be used. It is attached to a part of the body and injects the correct amount of insulin, as needed. When managing diabetes with medications, does the patient have to check their blood glucose level? The answer is yes. Managing diabetes does not mean one can eat excess refined sugar. If sugar gets built up in the body, it will lead to serious complications, such as heart disease, and damages to the eyes, feet, and kidneys.
What is Type 2 diabetes?
Ninety per cent of all cases of diabetes are type 2. Unlike with type 1 diabetes, where the pancreas does not secrete insulin, with type 2 diabetes, the pancreas still works. It does not secrete as much insulin as it does in a 15-year-old, but it does secrete an adequate amount. Type 2 diabetes means there is sugar buildup inside the body. It is very important to understand that, if the pancreas still works, it means the excess sugar causing the diabetes can be removed, and relatively easily.
Hereditary and non-hereditary type 2 diabetes
Hereditary type 2 diabetes means the disease was passed on from a parent, grandparent, or even great grandparent. However, not everyone in the family will acquire the condition.
Non-hereditary type 2 diabetes is also known as adult-onset diabetes, which means, the afflicted person is diagnosed as an adult, generally in their mid-forties. But recent research has found that children as young as 12 years old are being diagnosed with the condition.
Some research has linked the increase of type 2 diabetes to increased availability of sugar-sweetened beverages. For example, in many developing countries where cases of type 2 diabetes were very rare, with sugar-sweetened beverages becoming more available, so too has an increase in the cases of type 2 diabetes. This has been the case in North America.
What causes type 2 diabetes?
Type 2 diabetes is caused when one eats an excess amount of sugar and over the years, this causes a buildup inside the body. Some of that sugar finds its way into the blood stream where it converts into fat. Some of the fat coats the blood cells and prevents them from absorbing the sugar and transporting it to the muscles where it would normally be used for energy that fuels out body. At that stage the person becomes insulin-resistant, or type 2 diabetic.
Signs and symptoms of type 2 diabetes
The signs and symptoms of type 2 diabetes are similar to that of type 1 diabetes. Some signs to look for are:
- A strong craving for sweet drinks
- Indulging in sweets drinks
- Boils around the head area as well as genitals
- Feeling of fatigue
- Tingling around the finger tips and toes
- Frequent urination, which leads to the rapid weight loss
If you notice any of the above signs and symptoms, visit your doctor immediately. Here too, don’t ignore the signs.
Managing Type 2 diabetes
Managing type 2 diabetes is often the first thing physicians suggest to the patient. Physicians know that type 2 diabetes can be cured. So why then do they ask their patients to manage the diabetes?
After conducting several interviews with medical practitioners, I learned that some doctors assume that a type 2 diabetic already knows that his or her condition was caused by lifestyle choices. More specifically, they believe that their patients are aware their eating habits are a main cause of their condition and that they will modify their diet. Some doctors say that they prescribe managing the diabetes because people don’t listen when told to change their lifestyle: They don’t want to change their eating habits nor bother exercising, which is known to make one healthy, relaxed, and bring mental clarity. Healthy eating and exercise are also known to help reduce the chances of getting heart disease or having a stroke.
Most type 2 diabetics who have had a heart attack, had it while they were managing their diabetes. This is because type 2 diabetes is progressive condition. Type 2 diabetes is managed through the use of prescription drugs. Managing diabetes in this manner has allowed the condition—which can be reversed—to proliferate worldwide. Managing diabetes means the diabetic will always remain a diabetic. Taking sugar out of one’s diet is not as difficult as it is made to appear. The best time to reverse and cure type 2 diabetes is while it is being managed. The diabetes reversal program we offer through our website includes the recommendation of a supplement that suppresses the craving for sugar, making the reversal process much easier.
Note: You should confer with your doctor when undertaking a diet and exercise program that your body is not used to.
Type 2 diabetes remission
Type 2 diabetes remission is when the blood sugar level has returned to normal. The word remission is a medical term used in place of the reversal of type 2 diabetes, which means the disease or condition can return. When the diabetes is in remission, or reversed, the doctor takes the patient off of their medication. They can then eat some sugar, but not in excess. Excess sugar consumption overwhelms the body and allows the diabetes to return.
When type 2 diabetes has not returned for two years after it was reversed, it is considered to be cured. This is achievable if one follows a post-diabetes program.
