– Khalid A.
The common misguided method of treating type 2 diabetes is to give patients medications which boost insulin production, or indeed, actually giving patients more insulin.
This brings the glucose levels down temporarily by forcing it in to the fat cells – that large storage unit – make you put on weight; hence the term ‘Diabesity’, the co-existence of both diabetes and obesity.
A vicious cycle is created, where higher and higher levels of insulin are administered and the patients weight goes up and up, and the root problem of high insulin levels isn’t just not being addressed, it is being made worse.
It makes sense, therefore, that a diet and lifestyle that reduces our intake or production of glucose and insulin, would help reverse type-2 diabetes.
