is a metabolic disorder not just insulin resistance.
You may think that the pancreas is not producing enough insulin if someone develops type II diabetes, but in fact it actually produces too much insulin in most of the cases.
If you have some of the following symptoms, you may want to check your blood sugar levels.
- High blood sugar in the morning, all day, or just after a meal
- Peripheral nerve problems
- Blurry vision
- Increased thirst and frequent urination
- Increased hunger
- Graving sugar
- Slow healing wounds
- Frequent urination
- Candida overgrowth
Insulin, the key hormone in glucose utilization, opens the receptor sites on the cells membrane to get glucose in. If the body produces too much insulin the cells become insulin resistant.
You could compare this to the smell of your perfume. A short while after you start wearing it you don’t notice the smell anymore; you got used to it and it doesn’t register in the brain anymore.
By eating sweets, and or too many carbohydrates without adequate fiber and or fat content, glucose level in the blood become elevated.
Other organs involved in blood sugar regulation besides the pancreas:
- Adrenal glands
- and Kidneys
Complications of high blood sugar levels are:
- Blindness in adults
- Kidney failure
- Digestive issues
- Dementia – Alzheimer’s
- Peripheral nerve issues
What causes type II diabetes?
- Eating too much sugar
- Being overweight
- Sleep disturbances
- Toxins in food, which in turn cause hormone imbalances
- Not enough exercise
In order to reverse type II diabetes you need to investigate the root causes, which can be done with simple blood tests
Thyroid function: test Free T3, Free T4, Reverse T3, TPO antibodies
Liver enzymes: test ALT, AST
Insulin, glucose, HbA1c
Minerals, the best test is the Hair Tissue Mineral Test
Adrenal hormones, the best test would be a urine hormone test (which also tests neurotransmitters).
What could you do in order to reverse type II diabetes?
Start by eating the right kind of foods:
- measure your blood sugar level after a meal and adjust the amount of carbohydrates you eat at the next meal
- add more fats to any meal, such as olive oil. It will slow down the absorption of carbohydrates
- add more fiber to your meals such as a salad, cabbage
- reduce starchy vegetables such as potatoes and peas
Add more physical activity into your busy life
- take the stairs instead of the elevator
- park in the back of the parking lot
- start a vegetable garden. It keeps you physically active and you have great, organic vegetables to eat
Improve your sleep
- sleep in a dark, cool room
- turn off all electrical devices, especially the once connected to the internet
- go to bed before 10 PM and get up when the sun comes up
- turn off your Wifi router, read about EMF (electromagnetic frequencies) and watch my Youtube channel
Check your gut function
- Do you have food sensitivities? If you suspect you do you can start an elimination diet.
- Do you have leaky gut?
- Take probiotics in the form of a spore based probiotic; the best one is Megaspore. More info on Megaspore
- Improve protein digestion by chewing your food properly, and/or take digestive enzymes or digestive bitters
