The main problem with treating type 2 diabetes

How do you reverse type 2 diabetes?

The key to treatment is determining the true cause of the problem. Our bodies contain far too much sugar. We’ll use a metaphor to demonstrate this. Consider our bodies as a sugar bowl that slowly fills over time until it’s completely full.

What happens when we eat and our blood sugar levels rise even higher? Because the sugar bowl is full, the sugar is absorbed by the blood. In type 2 diabetes, this is the case. The majority of treatments rely on the administration of drugs, primarily insulin, which do not eliminate excess sugar. Insulin merely facilitates the transfer of sugar from the bloodstream to the other organs. Because the body can’t handle it (the sugar bowl is already full), it sends it to the eyes, kidneys, nerves, and almost everywhere else.

A large portion of the sugar is also converted to fat. This is why insulin consumption is frequently linked to weight gain. This is due to the fact that the main issue has not been resolved, and the situation keeps repeating itself after a meal.

Visual impairment, neurological problems, kidney damage, the need for dialysis, heart attacks, and strokes are all consequences of this. Internal organs, on the other hand, refuse to obey. It is intolerable for the body. In this case, doctors increase the insulin dose, which improves things for a while but then the problems return.

This is unsurprising because, rather than getting rid of sugar, we reintroduce it into the body. The analogy is used once more. Consider a room that is extremely disorganised. We stuff the trash into the closet rather than cleaning it up and throwing it out. The situation repeats itself after a while, and we come to the conclusion that we require a larger wardrobe. This does not solve the problem, so we begin moving the trash to different rooms. After a while, an unpleasant odour begins to pervade the entire house…

There can only be one solution: get rid of garbage, which means get rid of sugar. What is the best way of achieving this?

There are two solutions:

  1. Don’t overload your body with sugar. Following a low-carbohydrate or ketogenic diet is one of the better options. This solves part of the problem by ruling out the problem’s build-up.
  2. Burn any sugar that needs to be thrown away. Intermittent fasting is one method. It means you don’t eat for a while, but your body still needs energy and burns the sugar you’re trying to get rid of first. Learn more about intermittent fasting by clicking here.
