FASTING & TYPE 2 DIABETES

How to cure Type 2 diabetes as described by Jason Fung, MD

Modern medicine says that Type 2 diabetes is a progressive disease. This belief is wrong.

Type 2 diabetes does not have to be progressive.

You do not have to take insulin or other diabetes drugs for the rest of your life.

You can cure your Type 2 diabetes.

Below is a summary of a paper coauthored by Jason Fung, MD, author of the book The Complete Guide to Fasting and the book The Diabetes Code, describing three (3) people who cured their Type 2 diabetes by doing intermittent fasting, fasting 24 hours per day, 3 times per week.

Artificial sweeteners associated with 33% increased risk of diabetes

People who consumed artificial sweeteners “always or almost always” were 33% more likely to develop diabetes after adjusting for body mass index compared to people who consumed artificial sweeteners “never or rare” according to the E3N-European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition Study.

(The risk was 83% greater before adjusting for body mass index indicating that part of the increased risk was due to a person’s adiposity.)

HEALTH BENEFITS OF CHOCOLATE

One ounce of dark chocolate per day lowered blood pressure 6 mm Hg, fasting blood sugar 8 mg/dl

People with type 2 diabetes and hypertension who were given one ounce (25 grams) of dark chocolate per day had a 6 mm Hg drop in systolic blood pressure (dropping from 137 to 131 mm Hg), a 6 mm Hg drop in diastolic blood pressure (dropping from 85 to 79 mm Hg), and an 8 mg/dl drop in fasting blood sugar (dropping from 138 to 130 mg/dl) over two months compared to people who given the same amount of white chocolate according to a study from the Iran University of Medical Sciences in Tehran, Iran.

CHOCOLATE & DIABETES

Chocolate lowers diabetes risk 7-41% in men

Men consuming 1-3 servings of chocolate per month were 7% less likely to get diabetes during an average follow-up of 9.2 years compared to men who never ate chocolate according to data from 18,235 male physicians in the Physicians Health Study.

Men consuming 1 serving of chocolate per week were 14% less likely to get diabetes during an average follow-up of 9.2 years compared to men who never ate chocolate according to data from 18,235 male physicians in the Physicians Health Study.

Men consuming 2 or more servings of chocolate/week were 17% less likely to get diabetes during an average follow-up of 9.2 years compared to men who never ate chocolate according to data from 18,235 male physicians in the Physicians Health Study.

The effect was much stronger in normal-weight men (BMI less than 25), and in men younger than 65.

In men younger than 65, those who consume 2 or more servings of chocolate/week were 27% less likely to get diabetes compared to those who never ate chocolate.

In normal-weight men (BMI less than 25), those who consume 2 or more servings of chocolate/week were 41% less likely to get diabetes compared to those who never ate chocolate.

BUTTER

Butter consumption associated with 4% lower risk of diabetes

One Tablespoon of butter per day is associated with a 4% lower risk of diabetes according to a recent meta-analysis of previous studies by researchers from Tufts University and Stanford School of Medicine.

“This systematic review and meta-analysis suggests relatively small or neutral overall associations of butter with mortality, CVD [cardiovascular disease], and diabetes,” the paper concludes. “These findings do not support a need for major emphasis in dietary guidelines on either increasing or decreasing butter consumption, in comparison to other better established dietary priorities.”

STATINS

While statin use increased 68% (1999-2005), heart attacks increased 16%, strokes 45%!

Statin use among US adults increased dramatically from 1999 to 2005 from 8% of people surveyed to 13.4% of people surveyed, a relative increase of 68%.

How much do you think this reduced heart attacks, strokes and coronary heart disease?

Would you be surprised to learn that during this time that:

Heart attacks increased from 3.4% to 3.7%, a relative increase of 16%!

Strokes increased from 2.0% to 2.9%, a relative increase of 45%!

Coronary heart disease increased from 2.8% to 3.7%, a relative increase of 32%!

Type 2 diabetes increased from 7.8% to 10.3%, a relative increase of 32%!

People with one or more of these conditions increased from 13.4% to 16%, a relative increase of 19%!

Do you believe that statins reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke and death?

I do not.

The results of the study mentioned above suggests the exact opposite.

Below is more evidence that statins are not the wonderful, life-saving drugs that we have been led to believe, but instead the exact opposite: that statins are causing harm.

STATINS

Statins are NOT effective, but instead can cause hardening of the arteries, heart failure, diabetes

“In summary, statins are not only ineffective in preventing CHD [coronary heart disease] events but instead are capable of increasing [coronary heart disease] and heart failure,”  according to a 2015 review paper by Prof. Harumi Okuyama from Nagoya City University in Nagoya, Japan, Peter H. Langsjoen MD, a cardiologist from Texas, and others who reviewed more than 20 statin drug studies done after 2004.

People eating 5 or more servings of white rice per week had a 17% greater risk of type 2 diabetes compared to those eating less than one serving per month after adjusting for age, lifestyle and dietary risk factors according to a 2010 analysis by researchers at Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Replacing one-third serving of white rice with brown rice per day lowers type 2 diabetes risk 16%

“We estimated that replacing [one-third serving] of white rice with the same amount of brown rice was associated with a 16% lower risk of type 2 diabetes, whereas the same replacement with whole grains as a group was associated with a 36% lower diabetes risk,” the authors of the paper noted.

METFORMIN

Is metformin a life-extending drug? Metformin LOWERS risk of death in Type 2 diabetics vs controls

Type 2 diabetics taking metformin were LESS likely to die during a 2.8-year follow-up than non-diabetic controls leading the authors of the study to suggest that metformin might have a life-extending effect even in non-diabetics.

“Patients with type 2 diabetes initiated with metformin monotherapy had longer survival than did matched, non-diabetic controls,” the authors of the paper noted.

“This supports the position of metformin as first-line therapy and implies that metformin may confer benefit in non-diabetes.”

To say this another way, the authors of the study are suggesting that metformin might be life-extending drug in people WITHOUT diabetes.

JONATHAN WRIGHT, MD

Type 2 Diabetes can be predicted 20 years ahead of time looking at insulin levels, Jonathan Wright

You can predict who will get Type 2 Diabetes, 20 years before it happens by doing a glucose tolerance insulin resistance test which plots both blood sugar levels and insulin levels over 4 to 6 hours notes Jonathan Wright, MD, a pioneer in natural medicine, in this video clip.

He notes that that this test was best described by Joseph Kraft, MD way back in 1976.

(More info about Dr. Kraft and his book is at the bottom of this article.)

Fructose is a chronic, dose-dependent, liver toxin just like alcohol notes Robert Lustig MD

"Alcohol is metabolized to fat, and so is fructose, driving more liver fat then it can export, you get more insulin resistance, which drives the pancreas to make extra insulin, driving energy deposition into fat cells [increasing body fat], driving your weight gain, and the extra insulin is driving high blood pressure, driving heart disease, driving cell division which leads to cancer, driving changes in the brain that lead to dementia. Driving every single one of these diseases," notes Robert Lustig, MD, pediatric endocrinoligist from the University of California, San Francisco in a 7-part video series called "The Skinny on Obesity" (Episode 2).

"When the pancreas can't make enough insulin, and it burns out, it drives diabetes as well."

TESTOSTERONE

Too much testosterone can cause weight GAIN; one man gained 35 lbs according to one doctor

Older men, who on average were 61-years-old, who were testosterone-deficient, and who were given injections of testosterone, lost an average of 35 pounds according to a study presented on May 9th, 2012 at the 19th European Congress on Obesity in Lyon, France. However, beware that too much testosterone can cause you to GAIN weight. One doctor told me about a man who came to see him who had been given testosterone by another doctor, and who had gained 35 lbs, but he found his testosterone levels were TWICE as high as they should have been. So, while testosterone replacement may help older men lose weight, too much testosterone may cause weight gain. Read the entire article | Email this article
