Adult Onset Diabetes – Part 4 – The Cure

<– 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 fourth post in an in depth series which examines Adult Onset Diabetes, or, as it is also caused, Type II Diabetes. We’ll abbreviate it to AODM.

Most AODM Can Be Cured By Lifestyle Change

Further, virtually all patients that have been treated for AODM with Quantitative Medicine lifestyle changes have been cured. It is largely a matter of getting the body out of its glucose dependence and AODM induced torpor.


If it’s all about glucose rising to high levels because the cells don’t want it? Isn’t there a solution sort of screaming at us: CUT THE GLUCOSE?!

And if study after study shows substantial improvement with low carb diets, isn’t the message clearly: CUT THE GLUCOSE?!

glucose-a1c-carbs-sugarWe do not know what could be a plainer truth. Obvious, logical, verifiable, and repeatable, but adding to the absurdity, this was once common knowledge.

We Do Not Need Dietary Glucose

There is some general notion that dietary glucose is essential, the basic fuel of life, or essential for the brain, or something along those lines. It is true that the brain runs mainly on glucose, but it can also run on the smaller fat molecules and on ketones. The liver will always supply enough nutrient for the brain no matter what you eat. It can and does synthesize glucose as needed, and can also synthesize ketones, which are a backup fuel for the brain, and a perfectly satisfactory one. In fact, it may run better on ketones. Several studies have indicated that a ketogenic diet has significant benefits for dementia sufferers.

None of the other cells in the body need glucose. In fact, they run cleaner and better on fat; the heart especially.

How can we be so sure that we don’t need glucose containing nutrients like starches and sugars? Most of our evolutionary past we were hunter-gatherers, and in many regions where hunter-gatherers thrived, not a lot of vegetal matter grew in winter, especially an ice age one. For arctic hunter-gatherers, there is not much vegetal matter year round. Yet these people thrived. And they clearly thrived on a diet of protein and fat. Starch and sugar were rare in that world, typically a windfall, and invariably stored as fat. We are their descendants. We have the same dietary proclivities.

It’s Quite Hard to Cut the Glucose

This is the insidious part of AODM: it won’t let go of you. After some period of time in a chronically high glucose environment, the cells are thoroughly “programmed” to run on glucose. They are literally programmed. Cells metabolize fat differently, The cellular mechanisms that metabolize fats are suppressed and inactive, when those metabolizing sugar are fully engaged. This has all the attributes of addiction. A need for more is felt, and cutting is painful.

Suppose glucose is cut dramatically—no sugar, no starch. Glucose and insulin will immediately start to come down. This is disease reversal, plain and simple. However, the cells aren’t quite ready for this. Though there is plenty of circulating fat they could eat, they often don’t—at least not at first. They get hungry, and you get hungry—for sugar and starch. This phase takes substantial willpower, but there is no danger here. Eventually, the cells will respond and start using the fat. Insulin will drop. Glucose will drop and the craving for sugar and starch will completely cease. This could take a couple of weeks or as much as a couple of months, but it will definitely happen.

Once the transition is made:

  • No more craving.
  • Weight will drop.
  • Lipid profile will improve dramatically.
  • Well-being and focus will improve dramatically.
  • Sugar and starch will taste a little weird.
  • If this is coupled with an exercise and spiritual discipline program, cancer and atherosclerosis will reverse.

Cutting or Eliminating Dietary Starch and Sugar May Not Be Enough

High stress levels promotes AODM. It can even be the cause. Too much sustained sub-maximal exercise speeds up the process.

Stress Reduction

Chronic stress can cause AODM, and will lock it in. Chronic stress will elevate cortisol. Elevated cortisol will increase glucose levels, increase insulin levels, and increase inflammation. This significantly increase AODM and cancer risk; elevated insulin and elevated glucose. Reducing stress is imperative, but beyond the scope of this post  Some stress reduction tips can be found here.


To insure recovery, an exercise program should be undertaken as well. A lack of exercise will slow recovery, and may prevent it. Exercise information can be found in our Exercise Resource Center.

Medical Advice Varies Widely

To its general discredit, the medical profession assumes no one has the willpower to pull this off. However, in the Quantitative Medicine practice, cutting the starch/sugar, along with an intense exercise program, has been successful almost every time, and compliance is high.

Why does the medical profession assume that no one has willpower? Simple. The ones that had the willpower got cured and didn’t come back. The repeat customers are those that couldn’t successfully change their diet—but that’s not entirely their fault. Successful treatment is usually dependent on patient awareness of these three key components.

  1. The patient needs to know where he or she is heading with AODM. Many view AODM as a weight issue, but it is far worse than that.
  2. The patient needs to know, with certainty, that the Quantitative Medicine protocols will work, why they work, what they consist of, and how long they will take.
  3. The patient needs a way to keep score, and the periodic Quantitative Medicine measurements provide this information.

Is This Really a Cure?

This depends on your definition of cure. The high glucose, high insulin, high triglyceride problem will go away. All the health risks associated with this will likewise subside. For many, this would be a “cure.”

However, if the dietary discipline is broken, the AODM will return, and likely fairly quickly. In this sense, there is no cure.

Frequently doctors and others will toss around terms like “incurable,” implying that AODM is out of your control. This is patent nonsense and absolutely untrue. Trust your doctor, but verify.

      hi Sarah,i was wondering if you could tell me a bit more about the Stem Cell treatment? How did you get put on the trial? Where are you from? I thought of asking my consultant about this as we have run out of treatments to try but not sure how to approach this.Any help would be brilliant.loren xx
