Can you Cure Diabetes? | Does Fat cause Type 2 Diabetes?

The American Diabetes Association describes
type 2 diabetes as a chronic condition that you have to live with, “One of the themes
that’s coming across is once you have diabetes it is such a hard disease to manage and to
have treated because these are long term chronic conditions.” Considering that as of September 2018, A record
high number of Americans—40% are living with diabetes or prediabetes, this would mean
100 million people are going to have to learn just learn to live with this disease that
harms every single organ in the body. However… British Politician Tom Watson recently made
a buzz by reversing his type 2 diabetes: “Well I really did it by just completely changing
my diet.” And here is Dr. David Unwin presenting data
on 66 diabetics who did a diet intervention for 2 years: “Now, of the 66 cases, 33, 50%
are in remission after 26 months.” So, it doesn’t sound like type 2 diabetes
has to be chronic. This video is about 6 Myths that hamper your
understanding of diabetes and how to prevent or possibly reverse it. This was Myth #1, that Diabetes is a Chronic
condition. Myth #2 – is the idea that Excess calories
are the key cause of weight gain and so we should monitor calories to get a handle on
diabetes. “The biggest impact is probably because restaurants
are reformulating their menus to offer lower calorie products and they’re reducing the
calories in newly introduced items that are constantly coming on menus by about 60 calories
or 12%. At a population level, if you can extract
that number of calories out of the diet, it can actually have a pretty big impact on levels
of both obesity risk and diabetes risk.” The American Diabetes Association says that
because being overweight is a risk factor for diabetes, calories, but not sugar are
what lead to diabetes. Calories in calories out, it’s a rule of
physics – of thermodynamics, so it is of course correct …but when it comes to understanding
weight loss, it’s practically irrelevant. Why? Well, Because while calories can be a rule
of thumb, they tell you pretty much nothing about hormones. So, let’s look at the hormone you’ve been
expecting me to talk about: Insulin. In Chapter 4 of Robert Lustig’s book “Fat
Chance,” he tells the story of Marie, a 16 year old who had to have a tumor in her
hypothalamus destroyed with radiation, and ever since that procedure she gained 30 pounds
per year, and weighed 99 kilos or 220 lbs when Dr. Lustig first saw her. “Her insulin levels spiked to incredible
heights every time she ate. She had a form of intractable weight gain
due to brain damage called hypothalamic obesity.” Dr. Lustig put her on a drug called octreotide
that lowers insulin release. According to her Mom, after the drug, she
stops being hungry on half the amount of food, she has more energy, and lost 21kg or 48lbs
in one year. Dr. Jason Fung points out here that as early
as 1921 and in the 1930’s insulin was used specifically as a “fattening agent” to
help chronically underweight children and pathologically underweight patients gain weight. “So, here’s a startling fact. I can make you fat. I can make anybody fat, how do I do that? I prescribe insulin.” A very clear display of insulin’s fattening
properties is “Lipohypertrophy” – a well known phenomenon where people who inject insulin
will develop a bulb of fat at the site of injection. “So, if I prescribe insulin or if I give drugs
that increase insulin, you will gain weight and every doctor and every patient who takes
insulin knows that already.” There’s a dangerous condition called diabulemia
where type 1 diabetics wanting to lose weight will deliberately skip injections risking
the serious consequences of unchecked high blood sugar. Going back to Marie, she was less hungry and
more energetic on the insulin lowering drug, so she did end up eating less and her resting
calorie burn went up, calories in calories out checks out, but this was all thanks to
less insulin. This leads to another very similar myth: “But
beating obesity will take action by all of us based on one simple common sense fact. All calories count, no matter where they come
from. Including coca cola and everything else with
calories.” Myth #3 A Calorie is a calorie
When you eat carbohydrate, especially low fiber carbs, your blood sugar or “blood
glucose” goes up, and your pancreas pumps out insulin because insulin’s job is to
get the glucose into the cell to be used for energy. On the other hand, eating protein elicits
only a moderate release of insulin and fats elicit almost no release of insulin, so how
can all calories be equally fattening? Keeping all this in mind by the way, what
are diabetics recommended to eat? “General recommendations are to tell patients
with type 2 diabetes to consume 40 to 65 grams of carbohydrates per meal plus more at snacks. That’s a lot of carbs.” Ironically type 2 diabetics are often told
that they need to lose weight to reduce their insulin resistance and manage their diabetes,
…but in order to keep their blood sugars in check while eating a high carbohydrate
diet, they are routinely prescribed to inject insulin, a fattening agent. Now, the problem with type 2 diabetes is that
the cells are insulin resistant to the action of insulin, they are insulin resistant. This means they need need more insulin to
get the same amount of carbohydrate processed. But what is the cause of this insulin resistance
? Insulin is a hormone, and hormones get their
job done by binding receptors on the surface of their target cell, much like a key fitting
into a lock. Insulin acts like the key, fitting into the
lock on the cell to open the door for glucose to get into the cell so it can be turned into
energy. Dr. Neal Barnard uses this analogy in a TEDx
talk of his to explain his theory of how insulin resistance develops : “What if I get home,
and, getting up to my front door, I take my key out of my pocket, I put it in the front
door. It’s not working. And there’s nothing wrong with my key. But I look in the lock – somebody put chewing
gum in my lock. Well, when a person has diabetes, their insulin
key is not working. Why would that be? It’s not that there’s chewing gum inside the
cell. What there is is fat. Intramyocellular lipid is fat inside your
muscle cells and That is what interferes with insulin’s ability to work like a key to signal
glucose coming in.” This idea that fat from the diet is clogging
up the insulin receptor leading to insulin resistance is what he’s talking about within
the first 10 minutes of Kip Andersen’s relatively popular documentary “What the Health.” “Ah you’re driving me crazy. Diabetes is not and never was caused by eating
a high carbohydrate diet and it’s not caused by eating sugar. Here’s the thing, if I eat a sugary cookie,
the sugar lures you in like the trojan horse but waiting inside that cookie is a huge load
of butter or shortening. And that’s the part that leads to the diabetes,
it’s the fatty foods, not really so much the sugar. The cause of diabetes is a diet that builds
up the amount of fat into the blood, I’m talking about a typical meat based animal based diet.” Now, Dr. Barnard did show in 2009 that a high
fiber low glycemic whole foods vegan diet had better outcomes for diabetics compared
to the conventional recommended diabetes diet. but I would assert that a lot of the benefit
comes from the protective effect of all that fiber in all those plant foods. Consuming carbs wrapped in a ton of fiber
in the form of vegetables protects you from getting blood sugar and insulin spikes – fiber
is like an antidote to the carbohydrate. Dr. Barnard’s diet is also very low in fat,
but that doesn’t mean fat is the bad guy. Just because there’s fat in the muscle of
diabetics doesn’t mean that dietary fat, rather than sugar, causes diabetes. Now, Dr. Barnard is correct in that there
is at least an association between accumulation of fat in skeletal muscle and insulin resistance. But this leaves us with two questions
The first is how did how did the fat get in the muscle in the first place? Is it coming straight from the fat you eat? Well, it’s a little complicated, but it depends. As you’d expect, There is a process where
dietary fat is stored in your body as fat and this process is called re esterification. And, as this study found, high dietary fat
intake can lead to an increase of fat in the muscle, intramyocellular lipid. However, consider that this re-esterification
process is an insulin facilitated process. So the fat you eat can go right to storage
in the body, and some of it may end up in the muscle, but insulin, which rises when
you eat carbohydrate, is what stores the fat. So to really test if dietary fat really is
the culprit of getting fat into the muscle, you’d want to have the people doing a diet
that is high fat but very low carb and therefore very low insulin. This would be like the ketogenic diet, which
has only 5% of energy coming from carbs. However, in the earlier mentioned study, “subjects
were put on a diet of (25% fat, 55% carbohydrate, 20% protein) for three days, and then for
three days they had the high fat diet. But it was 60% fat, 20% carbohydrate, and
20% protein. This is not nearly ketogenic and most wouldn’t
even define that as “low carb.” With 20% carbohydrate there’s still plenty
of insulin to shuttle dietary fat into the muscle. So what happens when you do restrict carbohydrate
sufficiently? This study, similar to the last one, compared
a low carb and high carb diet to see which would put more fat in the muscle. Except, the low carb diet of this study was
much lower carb with only 10% carbohydrate and then 60% fat and 30% protein. Their high carb diet was 60% carb, 20% fat,
20% protein. The results? This time, they found the “High-carb diet
increased fasting insulin and [fat in the muscle].” So it depends on the context. Precise intramyocellular lipid kinetics are
not entirely clear yet, but fat isn’t the bad guy it’s made out to be. It seems insulin is peer pressuring the fat
to get into places we don’t want it to be in like the muscle. So this was Myth #4, “the fat you eat is
the fat you wear” Just because you eat fat doesn’t you’ll store it. A more correct version of that statement would
be: “The fat you eat might be the fat you wear if there is enough insulin present to
make you store it.” One other thing to consider in the second
study is that the carbohydrate could be getting turned into fat and put in the muscle. The process of turning carbs into fat is called
de novo lipogenesis. And, it’s well known that refined carbohydrates
increase triglycerides and a high fat super low carbohydrate ketogenic diet results in
the best reduction in triglycerides compared to other diets. If you want to see fat in the muscle, by the
way, look at cattle. Grain fed cattle – cattle fed on a high carb
diet have a lot more fat marbling in their muscle than grass fed cattle on a high fat
diet. The grass fed cows have barely any fat in
the muscle. Wait but they’re on a grass diet, not a
high fat diet… right? Actually, up to 70% of the grass fed cattle’s
energy requirements come from short chain fatty acids, which are produced as a result
of microbial fermentation of the grass in the foregut of the cow. So they are technically on a high fat diet
yet develop hardly any fat in the muscle. There’s still one more question. Is fat in the muscle, however it happened
to get there, gumming up the insulin receptor lock and causing insulin resistance? Well, some papers say fat in the muscle might
be one source of insulin resistance, but others say it’s not a marker for insulin resistance. In any case, consider this: exercise is well
known to have a beneficial effect on insulin sensitivity. However, as this study found, “exercise training
increased IMCL by 21%” but at the same time, it improved insulin sensitivity. This phenomenon actually has a name, it’s
called “athlete’s paradox” “in which endurance-trained athletes, who have enhanced insulin sensitivity,
also have higher [fat content in the muscle]” So, fat in the muscle may be associated insulin
resistance, but it’s doubtful that it’s the key cause of insulin resistance by gumming
up the insulin receptor lock. In any case, because dietary fat doesn’t
reliably increase fat in the muscle cell regardless of the context, and simply because many people
have improved insulin resistance and reversed their diabetes on a low carb or ketogenic
diet, “at the ten week mark, nearly half of our patients reversed their diabetes, and
by one year, that number increased to 60%” we can safely mark the idea “Dietary fat
is the cause of insulin resistance, and therefore diabetes” as Myth #5 Ok if that’s the case, Then what does cause
insulin resistance? Well, insulin causes insulin resistance just
like smells cause smell resistance or alcohol causes alcohol resistance. When you first meet your girlfriend to hang
out you might be able to smell her perfume very easily, but after a couple minutes you
no longer notice it. If you start to drink a lot, you’ll find
you have to drink more alcohol to get the same effect. Similarly If you keep getting a lot of insulin
in the bloodstream, your cells will get resistant to it. Jason Fung explains this in his book “The
Diabetes Code.” He says “I can make anybody insulin resistant. All I need to do is give them enough insulin.” In Chapter 6, Dr. Fung presents three studies:
・In One maintained a forty-hour constant insulin infusion into a group of healthy young
people and this increased insulin resistance by 15%. ・In another, a ninety-six-hour constant
intravenous infusion of insulin into a group of healthy young people increased insulin
resistance by 20 to 40 percent. ・And in the third experiment, patients initially
not taking insulin were titrated up to a very high dose of 100 units of insulin per day. Dr. Fung says: “The higher the insulin dose,
the more insulin resistance they developed— a direct causal relationship, as inseparable
as a shadow is from a body. Even as blood glucose levels got better, the
diabetes was getting worse. Insulin causes insulin resistance.” So in a high carb diet, unless it’s offset
with a bunch of fiber, a vicious cycle is created where excessive carbohydrate consumption
raises insulin, insulin worsens insulin resistance and fattens you up. This insulin resistance means you’ll need
more insulin the next time you eat the same amount of carbohydrate, speeding up the whole
cycle. Then, if you get to a point where you need
to inject insulin, then you are really speeding up the cylce. This finally leads us to Myth #6 – that You
need a certain amount of carbohydrate to be healthy. Nope. Our bodies can make all the glucose we require
– this is called gluconeogenesis. “We have essential amino acids, those proteins,
essential fatty acids, but nope. No essential carb. Our minimum daily requirement for carbohydrates
is zero.” So when you think about all of this, it seems
like the simple solution to type 2 diabetes would be to restrict these insulin raising
carbs. So, you could go on a low carb or ketogenic
diet or you could really lower insulin by eating nothing. But of course all kinds of articles and guidelines
against doing this and there’s experts saying you should definitely not do a keto or low
carb diet, and that it’s very dangerous in the long run. So it’s pretty confusing. Stick around because next week I’ll be talking
about concerns like this along with more information on diabetes itself. This video was sponsored by Audible… which
is still something I use almost every single day. I’ve gotten a lot comments before asking about
my research process. And, a lot of it is just reading all the time,
and a lot of my reading is actually listening to non-fiction books on Audible. I really like their non-fiction selection,
but they have an unmatched selection of all kinds of audiobooks, original audio shows,
news, comedy, and more. I recently listened to Dr. Jason Fung’s
audiobook “The Diabetes Code,” the content itself was very intriguing but what made it
special is that it is narrated by Dr. Fung himself. It was engaging enough that I ended finishing
it in a span of just two days. Dr. Fung thoroughly covers the history, epidemiology,
cause and treatment of diabetes, putting complicated concepts in plain English with a bit of subtle
humor here and there. He also dispels many myths surrounding diabetes

  1. My mother is a diabetic, and was forced to go to a class for Medicare. The woman running the class basically told them they could eat anything, but in 'moderation' . And that they could always inject more insulin if they wanted to have something with more carbs. My mom brought up low carb/keto diet (what I want her to eat, but doesn't) and keeping blood sugar low and the woman told her that wasn't healthy and not recommended for diabetics. They handed out pamphlets with meal suggestions for restaurants. I shit you not, their recommendation for Bob Evans was pancakes and syrup! This was a mandatory governmental class! Oh, another fun fact, the class was funded by the manufactureres of insulin!

  2. tl;dr eat a balanced diet comprised of whole foods containing plenty of protein, fat, fiber, and yes, carbs too. Avoid refined sugars and processed foods. Kind of like our ancestors did for half a million years. Extreme diets might work to reverse existing disease, but for a healthy person they're completely unnecessary. Just because we can survive without carbs doesn't mean that it's ideal to do so. Same goes for meat.

  3. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes this past February with an A1c of 11.1. I refused to take insulin and metformin against my doctor's wishes. By my three month followup I had lost 65 lbs and dropped my A1c to 5.4. I did this with intermittent fasting and eating a ketogenic diet of high fat, moderate protein, and low carb. All my bloodwork came back perfect. My doctors still push me to take medication and to eat more carbs even with the numbers staring at them in the face. Educate yourself and question your doctors.

  4. The key to stopping this Global Eugenics agenda is to STOP eating sugar, carbs and GMO foods, not to mention drinking fluoridated tap water and not taking over the counter drugs and prescription drugs is the answer. That's a great place to start. I do Keto, Intermittent fasting and follow Dr. Berg and Thomas Delauer on Youtube and have lost over 55 pounds. I feel AMAZING!

  5. Type 2 diabetes cure: eliminate sugar and restrict carbs. You never, EVER need to ingest sugar. EVER! Not one single grain. Dietary sugar is very, very shy of being classified as a poison.

    As far as the doctor saying diabetes isn't caused by carbs or sugar, he didn't say that you can do one or the other, but not both. Japanese eat rice and other high carb foods, but consume very little fat and they don't have a diabetic epidemic.

  6. Ii is my understanding that the liver needs a small amount of carbs for it's role in glutathione production. Please research glutathione and make a video on it.. Thanks.

  7. I found out I was diabetic when I woke up one morning and felt like I was going to pass out. My fasting BG was 310. I've been doing keto for only 3 weeks and my fasting BG is now 110. My BG after eating is around 120-125

  8. Barnard has got it all way around,  just like colesterol. Fat in the receptor is not the culprit as it may seem, as colesterol in the ateroma plaque is not the culprit, they are victims of circumstance. Great video.

  9. Crazy to see the extent the sugar industry has paid off research. Definitely sad that it's almost universally assumed sugar doesn't cause diabetes by these Americans.

  10. Remember when your insurance runs out they kill you… After they get whatever they can.. From pills, injections, eye tests, special equipment, AMPUTATIONS and other issues. That slowly kill you while making them rich… Insurance ran out they killed my mother…

  11. Ok come on we know most diabetics will loose a toe or foot or leg. They will have a stroke. They will have high blood pressure. They will go blind. They will have kidneys fail. They will skin problems. Oh crap the list is long. They keep our medical insurance and everyone in the medical fields working. From the Dr. To the labs ,to the grave digger. The sugar manufacturer the pie makers. See they keep the economy working earning wages and paying taxes. They need home help nurses. They need special medical beds, socks, pee pads. We can't have them learning what not to eat the money would go away

  12. Chromium gets insulin to move sugar into cells but it uses up the chromium. Eventually you run out of chromium and the insulin no longer works. You need to add more chromium to get more insulin to work.

  13. About intramyocellular fat does it make sense that shorter chain unsaturated fats can more easily enter the cell than saturated long chain fats? What is the structure of the lipids found within cells? Could it be that vegetable oils and other unsaturated fats are the culprit? Or contributing

  14. You see, the country I am from, has free healthcare, but not enough money to do it effectively. So instead of giving people insulin (which costs money), they *actually try to make the person healthy instead*, because healthy people aren't as expensive to take care of.

    The Type 2 diabetes pamphlets are very different here. The revolve around cutting as much sugar and fat from your diet as possible, and focus on shedding the pounds. And you know what? It works. My husband with type 2, since coming to New Zealand (he was from the states), and starting a low sugar diet, and going on meds to reduce the sugar in his bloodsteam, has found that the damage in his eyes caused by type 2 diabetes is now *healing*. The damage to his blood vessels is finally being reversed, you can clearly see it in his eye scans :DFun Fact: Sugary drinks are the worst for you if you have type 2. Sugar if fluids are absorbed 3 times as much as in solid foods.

    The recommendations are to not eat any food thats higher than 15g per 100g of sugar, and to not drink anything that is higher than 5g per 100g of sugar in drinks.

  15. This video is right on the money and everyone needs to read these books. They changed my life. Keep up the great work!!!!! Best youtube channel ever!

  16. It’s ironic that the mainstream food pyramid Standard American Diet is exactly what the abbreviation is s.a.d. Thankfully I know better these days…my husband was diagnosed with diabetes and was taking metformin…but now thanks to healthy eating guides (we all eat this way) A healthy person is not profitable…only sick people…light bulb went on just in the nick of time…grateful in Az and just a little note diabetes CAN be reversed been there already proved that without processed foods and portions..his doctor was shocked when his numbers went down to normal and said wow whatever you’re doing keep doing it!

  17. Sugar is ~like~ SATAN. It looks so innocent and makes everything taste great. But it will wreck your health and kill you eventually if you don't recognize it for what it is.

  18. I swear I remember Jason Fung saying that the idea of the insulin resistance is caused by FAT inside of the cell is absolutely ridiculous.

  19. Any suggestion for limited type systemic scleroses (scleroderma) diet ? Symptoms: Poliomyelitis (legs muscle weakness), hands skin thickening ("mechanic hands"), also thickening of foot skins. Joints contracture in knees. My mom can't walk anymore. She cant even stand up because of: 1)Legs muscle weakness 2) Contractures in knees 3) Foot skin thickening and fasciitis pain like symptoms. Please help.

  20. very informative… could u consider to involve in next videos st about people – present hunter gatherers and their diets and health/disease and also relationship diet x gut bacteria..fiber, resistant starch.. thnx

  21. Its bull that you have to have diabetes. My A1C was 7.6 and my father had his at 8.9. 3 months into doing a Ketogenic diet with also doing intermittent fasting we are both in the 4.2 range. He had it for 15 years and me for 1 and boom gone after 3 months. Don't die due to huge food corporations. Anything in a box or bag or processed is poison.

  22. Fat causes diabetes? LOL I've been doing low carb/keto and even carnivore for several years, and my fasting glucose, insulin and A1c are all normal. Insulin resistance score very low.

  23. there's no such thing as insulin resistance, what you're seeing is energy storage
    saturation. body can't store anymore energy in the form of fat. to reduce insulin
    taking l-arabinose works, it's a sugar inhibitor, blocks the digestion of sugar and HFC.

  24. I have never seen any video on health with such wide and ingenious coverage , perfect amalgamation of sources and orator explanation is just waaoooo. Thanks for the video man .

  25. I've recovered from type 2 diabetes twice already, but it has always come back because of depression. During depression I don't care much about what I eat and it's difficult to get into exercising. I'm really not even fat, but due to genes from my father's side, it's easier for me to develop certain diseases. Planning to beat it once and for all by switching to keto from a mostly vegetarian diet. Hoping it will help with the depression too and give me more energy to exercise.

    E: When I was first diagnosed I had to use two kinds of insulin and Metformin. After that only been using Metformin.

  26. 7:40 He's using the same slotted spoon for everything in that buffet. Such an asshole. Would totally kick his ass at the parking lot. 😠

  27. It’s funny that most of your information comes from Virta a company that requires you to take a statin if you participate in their keto studies. You may get skinny on a keto diet but you won’t be protected from heart disease.

  28. Let's not forget that 99% of those who have diabetes went a long time without getting enough micro nutrition. Vitamins and minerals.

  29. *Diabetes is chronic you can't get rid of it let me explain …just last week I fasted for a colonoscopy drinking the water to flush out my body brought my 16mmol average to 7.7 after the 8th glass of alternatively water , clear grape juice , apple juice, and clear chicken broth …that is pretty low for someone with a high average . However 30 minutes later I was back up to my average . If I eat a chocolate bar my level doesn't go up as much as starchy foods or bread and obvious sugar as well as hidden sugar . None of this video is true . Your pancreas wears out and there goes your chances of a diabetic free life .Most diabetics can bring down their numbers but you lose specific nutrition in order to succeed. At one point eliminating all starch- pasta- breads brought my numbers down consistently to less than ….6.0….it took 3 months to be diabetes free …so I thought because my numbers were perfect day after day consistently 24 hrs a day week after week in the last month …. after eating the diabetes increasing foods it went back up almost instantly less than half a day and stayed there*.

  30. Everything is energy and that means you kids. What happens is Karma internally and externally. If you are alive with cognitive ability unwilling to just accept the "everybody knows" or a diagnosis as a lifelong issue, if you choose to change you WILL heal. No bones about it.
    I never use Doctors. The mind is the better choice.

    What I did to throw away glasses I'd worn 61 years, cure glaucoma & cancer, regrow my hair… the list is long was do the following:
    Here's how,

    1. I forgave everyone and everything that had ever hurt me.

    2. I vowed to forget it & forgive myself.

    3. I continually said to myself "I have healed."

    To have is to have, but to want means you do not have– in essence you must identify emotionally and intellectually with I HAVE. You will then have. You can only be what you accept that you are. Now go heal.


  31. Wow….so much misinformation in this video. I don't even know where to start. You are taking a topic and turning it on it's head. You are talking about people with insulin surplus causing obesity. This is obvious. If you have the physiological amount of insulin, it is what you eat and lack of activity that causes weight gain. Which in turn causes your cells to become less sensitive to insulin, which ultimately will result in the feedback loop for insulin production to shut down. They do not need "more insulin". They need their cells to be more sensitive to it.

  32. All this talks from all so called experts, I don’t even know who to believe anymore. We must search on our own and stop believing everything we hear from these experts on tv.

  33. Sugar and refined carbs are the devil 👿….. I’ve lost weight and reversed my PCOS (a syndrome of insulin resistance) on keto, fasting and exercise.

  34. I have tried to go off insulin on my own, but my sugar levels started really going up so I thought I really should take it. Tried to talk to my doctor about it and she is adamant that she does not want me off insulin. I got the impression that she does not believe in reversing diabetes. Feel trapped. BTW, have been very low carb for long time (keto) & IF when poss. Sometimes sugars go too low..type 2 for over 35 yrs…

  35. This makes a lot of sense… my tribe easts high, carb high fat diet BUT ALSO EVEN HIGHER AMOUNT OF LEAFY VEGS/HERBS(mostly forest/jungle vegs) WHICH R HIGH IN FIBRES.
    My Tribe has VERY low Diabetes risk n very few got it, n those who suffered from it r urban folks.

  36. I am quite disappointed about how Lipohypertrophy was skimmed over. Yes, insulin injections cause a buildup of fatty tissues around injection sites, but this is often because people are incorrectly rotating sites or not rotating at all. I was given many papers when I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes about Lipohypertrophy, why it happens, and how to avoid it. Insulin is also a growth hormone and can cause increased growth of adipose tissue if in high dosages. Insulin isn’t supposed to be in your adipose tissue, but it’s currently the only way we can get it. The buildup makes it more difficult for insulin to be absorbed and results in the requirement for higher insulin doses. When people are treated for Lipohypertrophy by stopping injections to the area completely and moving to another place, the patient needs to suddenly lower their insulin doses because their regular doses result in low blood sugar.
    Diabetics (especially those with Type 1) are taught about rotating sites because the only way to get rid of the buildups from Lipohypertrophy is to completely avoid the area until they go away and there are many cases that they don’t completely disappear.

  37. The Vegan Agenda is pushing to ban animal products cause of "climate change", everyone needs to understand this rigged system everything proofed by fake studies, us showing the way to hell.

  38. Dr Barnard is wrong, it is the sugar, not the fat. That's why soooooo many T2D have reversed their disease with a keto, high fat no sugar diet or Paleo diet or carnivore diet, which all have a good amount of healthy animal fats.

  39. If you want to live you will change your diet if you don't you will get a rude awakening maybe when it's already to late to do anything about it. But it's up to us. Sugars, carbs are very very very addictive I had headaches and dizziness for over to months on my life change but well worth it my Drs say I don't know what your doing but keep doing it. All my levels in my blood are getting better everyday inflammation gone feel so much better. Lost over 40 lbs.

  40. I was diagnosed 2 years ago with type2. my weight is where I'm supposed to be. not over or under weight. I threw the pills away. changed my diet and speedwalk 2 miles 3 days a week. my H1c is now 6.5

  41. This medical industry infuriates me. After 1 blood test with a fasting glucose of 105 I was told to eat lots of fruit and vegetables. I was already vegetarian. My cholesterol was 286. Immediately I was offered Statins, after 1 blood test. I told her I was under enormous stress, as I cared 24/7 for my 87 year old Mom with advanced Parkinson's; she then wanted me to start anti depressants!!! Situational stress in not a reason for drugs. Instead of referring me to a counseling group for caregivers, I'm offered drugs that have many side effects. I was already on Lorazepam for PTSD, something that should never be prescribes for longer than 6 weeks as it is extremely habit forming. After 13 years on this drug, I decided that's it!! I'm detoxing, I'm down from prescribed 3 2mg. Tablets to 1/4 tablet but it has horrible withdrawal. It's slow as cold turkey causes seizures. I would be interested in a,study of how the stress hormone (cortisol) affects glucose and lipid stats. I never eat sugar, and am a normal weight. Thanks for awesome videos!!
