Adult Onset Diabetes – Part 6 – Case Study #1

<– 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 sixth 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. Here we look at an actual case.

Mr. “Jones” was one of a pair of identical twins. As you might expect, when “Mr. Jones’ got diabetes, his brother did too.
“Mr. Jones” was 39 years old when I met him. He came into my office with a copy of his last set of blood tests. Across the face of the copy were the hand written words: “eat better and exercise more;” the note was signed by his doctor. On questioning it was clear his doc had tried several medications and offered standard advice on diet and exercise; his doc had done as much as office time would normally allow. Yet the young man I met was clearly motivated and wanted very specific and detailed advice and guidance and would be willing to follow such direction if it worked. His identical twin brother was not interested in such changes.

As I was going to ask “Mr. Jones” to undertake intense exercise and given the severity of his diabetes, an A1c of 9.6 which represents an average blood sugar of 264(!) for the prior several months, I had him undertake a nuclear stress heart test to make sure it was safe for him to exercise so intensely. His stress test was positive. In other words he had coronary artery blockages, which put him at risk of a future heart attack. His ischemia, sign of blockage, occurred at a high enough heart rate and work load that we began his training, without a stent, by carefully monitoring his heart rate to peak at just above his ischemic heart rate. This is called ischemic heart rate training. Never (!) do this on your own. Following my training protocols, carefully monitored by an accomplished personal trainer, and dietary guidelines, outlined in the book, he lowered his A1c to 5.2, an average blood sugar of 108 – well below diabetes level – and eventually he had a negative nuclear stress test. He had reversed his coronary artery disease.
“Mr. Jones” was an exceptionally motivated patient and was meticulous in following guidance and by any standard did an amazing job of fixing his diabetes and heart disease. He is also unusual in that his diabetes is not from your typical insulin resistance syndrome; his diabetes is not driven by high insulin, his is driven by a liver that dumps and stores out of sync with his insulin. Still he cured his diabetes.
Coda to the story: a few years after “Mr. Jones” began fixing his illness his brother, who did not make the same changes, had a severe heart attack. Now, after the damage of the heart attack, he is following his much healthier brother’s lead and getting well.
This story illustrates that while genetics plays an important role in illness, choices, character if you will, are even more important.
