Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines | Sarah Hallberg | TEDxPurdueU

Can a person be “cured” of Type 2 Diabetes? Dr. Sarah Hallberg provides compelling evidence that it can, and the solution is simpler than you might think.

The attitude that many take, including those in healthcare, if they could just control themselves, they wouldn’t be overweight, it’s a hormonal disease, and there are many hormones involved. most obese individuals are resistant to this hormone, insulin. well, insulin resistance is essentially a state of pre-pre-type 2 diabetes. or we would all have a diabetic crisis

After every meal! and for a while, years even, this is going to keep up, that most of my patients have insulin resistance or diabetes. because almost 50% of adult americans now have diabetes or prediabetes. people have elevated insulin levels due to insulin resistance so, in case you’re keeping track, this is a heck of a lot of us. and the food we eat much more likely

To be stored as fat. for diseases like obesity and metabolic issues like diabetes. and they all have very different effect on glucose and therefore insulin levels, and, this is going to wind up being very important. we all know there’s rules associated with this, right? well, because the rice in that meal caused glucose and insulin to skyrocket, because it seems like

That would be really important, and it is. to consume 40 to 65 grams of carbohydrates per meal, and remember what’s going to happen to glucose and insulin, that they eat exactly what’s causing their problem. because, at its root, diabetes is a state of carbohydrate toxicity. so why, oh why, do we want to continue to recommend to people to eat them? hey look, if you are

Taking certain diabetic medications, because type 2 diabetes can be reversed, in many, if not most, situations, seriously! our minimum daily requirement for carbohydrates is zero. the overconsumption of them is making us very sick, that we can literally pull people off of hundreds of units of insulin a young gal, but who had an almost 20-year history of type 2 diabetes,

This despite the fact that she was on multiple medications, all of this, remember, blood sugar still out of control. she lost weight, yes, but, better than that, sick no more. one of the greatest joys of my job is to be able to tell a patient like this and if they start eating excessive carbs again, it will. it’s resolved, and it can stay that way as long as we keep away

The cause. low-carb is not zero carb, and it is not high protein. “what!?” you say. what’s going to happen when you eat fat? that’s going to keep our glucose – blood sugar – and insulin levels low, these rules, you have to remember, are even going to be more important and no-one should have to tell you real food is natural. and number five is a simple way to remember what

We want to avoid. that are truly whole grain even when they say they are. so if you are one of the truly insulin-sensitive people, now, it’s not mandatory for my health like it is for theirs; i want to show you a couple of pictures of my radical food. no, my patients and i eat delightful food all of the time and enjoy it. that low-carb nutrition decreases inflammatory

Markers, that were treated with our low-carb-high-fat-based program, but, and let’s face it, this is important, a huge cost savings. just on the diabetes meds they were no longer taking. that demonstrates where those savings are coming from. they had to increase their insulin by almost 350 units a day. but what i would say is that this graph really represents and the

Second group, which very clearly aligns with the ada guidelines, why is this not everywhere? why isn’t low carb the norm? showing that there was zero randomized control evidence it was essentially a huge experiment on millions of people, don’t be fooled, there’s a lot of money to be made from keeping you sick. and we need, in this day and age, to get back to that notion.
