Adult Onset Diabetes – Part 1 – Introduction

<– Previous Next–>

Adult onset diabetes is not genetic and is curable. Many in the medical profession would disagree with both. Quantitative Medicine clinical practice has cured adult onset diabetes consistently and repeatedly.

This the first post in an in depth series which examines Adult Onset Diabetes (also called Type II Diabetes). We’ll abbreviate it AODM.

Subsequent posts will deal with the exact causes, how to reverse the disease, how to measure the progress, and how to maintain a cured state. Almost all people diagnosed with AODM can reverse the condition permanently, and without drugs.In 20 years, dealing with hundreds of patients with clinically diagnosed AODM, all have been reversed and many cured, and none needed drugs. Depending on their continued discipline the improvement was permanent; many in time did slip back. But only after returning to their old bad practices. I had one man who reversed his diabetes and when his numbers were clearly in the non-diabetic range he asked me, “now, can I go back to eating pizza?” He was a smart man, but he just didn’t get it.

Let’s start with the genetic issue, because it gives us valuable insights into AODM. The logical proof that adult onset diabetes is not genetic is simple: A lot more people have it now than had it 50 or 100 years ago. Genetics simply cannot change that fast. Our body manages sugar and starches as though we were still hunter-gatherers; the genetics of this fact may change in a few thousand years but not soon enough to make candy a health food in our lifetime.

AODM is usually defined as a failure to properly manage circulating glucose, i.e. sugar. The levels get too high and this causes myriad problems.  Since it is the “job” of insulin to get rid of glucose, and juvenile or Type I diabetics have both high glucose and cannot make insulin, AODM got categorized as diabetes on the basis of high glucose even though, unlike Type I DM, there is plenty of insulin. However it is possible to have an impairment in insulin production, but by far the principle cause of AODM is not a lack of insulin, but a glut of glucose.

Frequently doctors will speak of “insulin resistance” as a cause of AODM. What is meant here is that the cells are refusing to use the circulating glucose, even though the insulin level is high, and normally a high insulin level is a message to the cells to gobble up the circulating glucose. If the cells would obligingly do so, the circulating glucose levels would fall to normal ranges and there would be no AODM.

But the cells refuse to take up this excess glucose. They are “resisting” the insulin signal. Hence the terminology.

So following the obvious trail: What causes insulin resistance? Often you will read that this isn’t known. However, there are two dominant factors, either of which could wholly account for insulin resistance. First: age. Older cells are simply less efficient. They are less able to metabolize circulating glucose. Second: They are full. The cells will take enough glucose for their specific needs. If the cell is “full” then it simply won’t accept any more. Fat cells accept quite a lot of circulating glucose. They convert it to fat for long term storage, but even fat cells have their limits.

The current “standard treatment diet” for AODM is one of the biggest mysteries in medicine. It is almost a recipe for making the disease worse. In fact, a curative diet is strikingly different. Fifteen years ago when Dr. Mike pointed this out to a group of diabetes practitioners, they were enraged. Fast forward to the present, and Dr. Mike has a lengthy string of cured patients. Standard practice solemnly pronounces the disease incurable, and for all practical purposes they are actually causing that to come true for their own patients.

By the way, the “standard treatment” today is little changed from that fifteen years ago. That is why 10% of the country is diabetic, and an amazing 50%, according to latest research, is pre-diabetic. Even though the science is basically “in,” the current diet is a bad one, there is a much better, more healthy alternative.

    I read the article in today’s Daily Telegraph about the SNPMP who lost 3 1/2 stone and beat type 2 diabetes.
    I’ve lost 4 stone and hope to beat type 2 diabetes as well.

      Great! Keep in mind merely losing weight is a temporary ‘cure’ of type 2 diabetes; you have to change the fundamentals and eliminate all starch and sugar or weight loss merely turns down your metabolic burn rate and then, after the adjustment for the weight loss, your glucose numbers will go back up. Good job, Good Luck and God Speed, Dr. Mike
