reverses diabetes type 2 pathophysiology (⭐️ olives) | reverses diabetes type 2 nicehow to reverses diabetes type 2 for It’s so easy, anyone can do it!

Becoming diabetic and proudly having to finger stick your way to blood sugar control is patriotic, as it builds revenues for Big Pharma. What better way to support your country than to help successful industries grow larger, increase shareholder value, and increase the salary and perks for hard working executives?

So if you want to join the growing ranks of people who are becoming diabetic, now the largest epidemic of chronic disease ever witnessed in the history of the world, here’s what you do:

  • Cut your fat intake — Because it leaves you unsatiated and hungry, you will be left with cravings and the loss of resolve to consume healthy foods, making those chips and cookies irresistible. Celebrate with Frito Lay and Oreos!
  • Consume high-glycemic index foods — By “high,” I mean any food with a greater than zero or single-digit glycemic index, such as grains and sugars. Also eat more “low-” and “moderate-” glycemic index foods, because they raise your blood sugar to high levels, too!
  • Consume modern wheat — Because the gliadin protein yields opiate peptides that stimulate appetite and increase calorie intake by 400 calories per day, every day, making you want more to eat all throughout the day, paving the road to a wonderful and proud collection of visceral fat.
  • Listen to your doctor’s advice to not supplement vitamin D or supplement at low-dose and be content with a 25-hydroxy vitamin D level of 30 ng/ml, the level you would have with minimal sun exposure and no consumption of animal organs. Ignore the fact that healthy, young, sun-exposed people typically have 25-hydroxy vitamin D levels of 70, 80, or 90 ng/ml. And ask your doctor to take the less effective, non-human form of vitamin D available by prescription!
  • Give into the joint pain, lethargy, and depression caused by grains. This allows insulin resistance to gain a foothold, sending up blood sugars. And, anyway, think of all the TV you can catch up on not having to worry about exercising.
  • Eat processed foods made with grains and sugars, also filled with herbicides like glyphosate and imizamox, that cause changes in bowel flora. Cut back on those healthy Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria species and give equal time to E. Coli , maybe even Clostridium difficile!
  • Eat gluten-free foods made with cornstarch, tapioca starch, rice flour, and potato flour, since they have the highest glycemic indexes of all foods — there’s nothing higher! Your doctor will be shocked at how high your HbA1c can go just by following this simple strategy. Gluten-free foods might even earn you your very own insulin pump!
  • You’ll know when you’ve succeeded when you have to shop for larger and larger pants and dress sizes and, best of all, your doctor feels good about himself because he is able to do his job and hand out more prescriptions to treat your high blood sugars, high blood pressure, joint pains, skin rashes, acid reflux, and high cholesterol. Maybe he will even have to put you on antidepressants!

    Think how much you will add to the bottom line of your friendly neighborhood pharmacy alone.

    You can find a number of roadmaps to accomplish this lifestyle. One way would be to not read nasty books like Wheat Belly that could actually harm the profit making potential of grains and drugs. Another way would be to just follow the advice of the American Diabetes Association and all their friendly supporters in the drug and processed food industry.

    After a number of years of diabetes, think how much more you can contribute to the nation’s economic success when you need a heart catheterization, stents, or bypass surgery, carotid artery surgery, stents in your femoral arteries, hemodialysis, and foot amputations? Your doctor is happy, high-fiving you for all the terrific fees you generate, the hospital adds your name to its mailing list to keep up-to-date on all its new services, while dietitians congratulate you on how well you adhere to their low-fat, grain-based advice.

    High fives on this one. So true in every aspect. Seems that many actually think they’re still healthy as long as they follow the Food Plate. Heck, even students are rebelling across the country to show their displeasure on being handed Big Gubmints confiscation of school lunch programs. Read the other day an article which I failed to bookmark. It was how when many patients miss or mess with the new insurance programs are getting calls and home visits by workers to check to see if they’re following the ADA’s recommendations for diabetics, and taking their prescriptions. I totally believe that we must do as much as we can to avoid the long chart of common illnesses these days. I also think that long list of common illnesses will eventually be rationed to those that only follow doc’s orders and can prove they did.

    How should we respond to those that claim that if all of us went grain free it would bring the economic collapse of the agricultural, medical and pharmaceutical industries, which would create the most severe depression the world has ever seen, which would generate lawlessness, anarchy and riots, possibly destroying our civilization?

      I’d tell them they better be shopping for acreage to grow/raise their own or hang on for the ride. ;) Right now bakeries are losing money by the tons, and fast food sales are down, at least those that depend on buns to market their slime (no pun intended). I also don’t see as much sales in packaged bake mixes. Hmmm, methinks there are far more people not eating what/grains as there used to be. I sat at a table for 8 at lunch the other day, and not one of us took the rolls from the little basket. Six did indulge in the dessert but ate the strawberries with cream, leaving shortcake alone.

        Well, we can hope the change is a-comin’ and I love your enthusiasm, Neicee, and positive attitude. But I live near an area where one of top-rated high schools in the country is located, high percentage of advanced degrees among the residents, good to excellent incomes. And the last time I visited the local McD’s there (for coffee only, I swear!) every customer was wolfing down burgers and fries. And well-dressed mom’s with little kids in tow were busy ordering Happy Meals at dinner time. If this McD’s in a prosperous area populated with the well-educated is thriving (as far as I can see) one wonders what’s happening in other areas. I think we’re still at the bottom of a pretty high mountain to climb.

        I’ve been really shy about spreading the word about WB considering how I look and my many health problems. But once I’m looking and feeling better I’ll be getting out my bullhorn to encourage others to join our ranks so the climb to the summit is a bit faster.

        Our American psyche has to change from rugged individualism and self interest to a more responsible concern of contributing to community welfare and public good.
        New industries will begin the transition to sustainable and non toxic food and water production. Those corporations who only consider impact on their bottom line will find themselves without many customers.

          Barbara in NJ, I read a book about 10 yrs. go by a young woman from Africa that told the story of how the WTO, UN, and the West had destroyed the agribusiness in Africa. Where they had been self sufficient in years past, they were basically trained to stop farming and becoming totally dependent of imported foods and donations of tons of food. It was really enlightening. Sorry, cannot for the life of me remember that author’s name of title of the book. Oh, and of interest, their farming methods did not destroy the land.

            Exactly right.
            The gifts and donations followed by “development” financing that couldn’t or wouldn’t be paid back opened the way for the dictators and thugs to take control of any industry and food production.
            Corporate greed overcame common sense. The “natives” and “peasants” usually know how to survive on the land they occupy and eat in a manner which sustains their health. Planting at least 1 tree for 1 that is cut down had been pushed aside so the agribusinesses could sell their products. Africa’s expanding desert is the result. Stripping the natural resources has lined the pockets of many while the natives starved.

      Is there some compelling reason why you post on this blog? If you don’t believe that your son’s pancreas is/was affected by grain and sugar consumption then go to another blog site which embraces your viewpoint. Whatever autoimmune disease your son has, nearly all show improvement in symptoms when grains and sugars are consumed in limited amounts, if at all. Dr. Davis is merely publishing his viewpoint. If you read this blog, then you have read about wheelchair bound Dr. Wahl recovering from her MS autoimmune illness, developing a dietary protocol for herself. This was after the best of modern medical treatment failed to improve her condition. The fact that cancer feeds on sugar has been widely known for many years. Please direct your disagreement elsewhere. No one has slapped your face and no one has placed a stigma on you or your son’s condition. Vent elsewhere or prove your statements.

I even fed my baby girl those poisons and once grown figured out her attacks of either celiacs or severe gluten intolerance were worse than mine. I talked for years about her need to get tested and finally she did agree to give up wheat and grains. She called after 3 days with “OMG mom I feel terrific.” Do I feel guilty? Yes, but she’s on the right track and looks like a kid. And, I don’t blame my mother because she was only doing what she thought was right.

      Oh rubbish. You know what’s a slap in the face to diabetics? It’s the ADA, who:
      1. fail to admit that T2D is a totally optional ailment avoidable and usually reversible with diet
      2. fail to admit that T1D is controllable with minimal/no meds via diet, and
      3. conveniently confound T1D and T2D when they want you to buy their dogma that the cause of “diabetes” is unknown, but it’s “incurable”.

      Anyway, this T1D angst was fully explored on the old, more provocative, thread:

      Since the exact cause is not nailed down, how do you know that? No parent wants the cause to turn out to be parental diet, but it odds a high that it is.

      T1D is rising. There’s an active cause out there, and it’s gaining on us. Anything otherwise harmless is worth a try. Once we’ve had a statistical cohort of grain-free moms raising grain-free kinds, we’ll know more. In the meantime, there is zero harm in joining that cohort.

        It’s also the danger of becoming not only a statin nation but an insulin nation as well. Someone must know (and I believe they do – our LCHF community) the causes of diabetes, both types.

When I told her I didn’t like any of them she said, “we’ll get along.” She apologized for being so abrupt but that most patients exhibit disappointment if they leave without a piece of paper and they get agitated.

    http://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/early/2014/04/18/dc13-2900.abstract

    A commenter there reported that it was funded by Jenny Craig, and only compares a modestly lower carb diet to a “low fat” diet. Unsurprisingly the diabetics (T2D) did better on the lower carbs. I haven’t seen the full text, but I doubt either group was grain-free. Of course they didn’t test against LCHF.

    My take on this is that either the generic diet plan industry and/or the ADA are finally emerging from their appalling, perhaps willful, ignorance about human nutrition, or they are carefully building a paper trail of “new” science that they can use to explain away why they are so late low-carb, and why they are backing away from carbs so slowly.

    • Uncle Roscoe

      Type 2 diabetes is insulin resistance. So you can’t have insulin resistance without having type 2 diabetes.

      I’m not that familiar with Emmerich’s ketogenic diet. The idea behind a ketogenic diet is, you take in less calories, in food that turns to sugar, than your body needs. Then you fill in the shortfall with fats. It works by making your body adapt to fat. In my view the idea behind wheat elimination for insulin resistance is elimination of proteins which cause insulin resistance. The proteins in legumes (peanuts, beans and peas) also cause insulin resistance, so you’ll need to give them up as well.

      Fructose and alcohol are also excellent causes the 1 last update 07 Aug 2020 of insulin resistance. Your combination of insulin resistance and fatty liver disease says that (apart from wheat) alcohol. fructose or both are probably giving you lots of trouble. Stop ingesting both of them. In case you don’t know, in nature fructose is responsible for the taste of sweetness, so you’ll have to stop ingesting anything which tastes sweet.Fructose and alcohol are also excellent causes of insulin resistance.

        Actually, ketogenic diets aren’t usually calorie-restricted, except when they are being used for theraputic purposes (e.g. cancer) or one is shooting for maximum weight loss. Total caloric intake (largely fats) may well rise. A great intro to KD is:
        http://eatingacademy.com/nutrition/ketosis-advantaged-or-misunderstood-state-part-i

        I haven’t seen the details of Maria Emmerich’s keto diet either, but since Dr. Davis wrote the Foreword for her book, chances are it’s WB-compliant with lower net carbs. WB is in my view right on the keto-glycemic border.

          “Actually, ketogenic diets aren’t usually calorie-restricted, except when they are being used for theraputic purposes (e.g. cancer) or one is shooting for maximum weight loss. Total caloric intake (largely fats) may well rise.”

          Yes, generally ketogenic diets concentrate on restricting the weights of carbohydrate intake. That’s not what I’m talking about. The physical pathway goal of ketogenic diets is to supply the body with far fewer sugar calories than the body’s total calorie requirement. Restricting carbs by weight accomplishes this goal. The body then makes up the calorie deficit through fat intake, and through burning adipose fat.

          It takes time for the body to switch between sugar adaptation and fat adaptation. Ketogenic diets make the body use up ingested sugar. The blood runs on low glucose levels, and cells adopt chemical pathways which intake fats at least as readily as glucose

      Can you post a link to that here? The first question I’d have about it is was that “insulin spike” or “blood sugar spike”, which aren’t the same thing at all.

      And then if it was “insulin spike”, was that in response to one of her recipes, and what, if any sweetener was used? I’m not sure that an empty insulin spike in response to an artificial sweetener (that doesn’t actually raise blood sugar) is a problem.

    I would encourage any of you that think we’re all nuts over on this site to simply use your fingers to learn a few things. Go over to Youtube and type in “Type 1 Diabetes Cure” and sit back for the next few hours. Most of the commenters are doctors, or those that have documented their own cure after suffering with T1 diabetes for years. I got thousands of possible hits. I can’t imagine what I’d get on a Google search. There was also an article on http://www.dietdoctor.com by a young man that had even dropped out of school because of depression in Norway. He’s turned himself around and hopes to help others in the future.

            Neicee,
            You know we usually agree! But… unless you make your living by those 1″ nails and HAVE to have them… would you consider not having nails “to die for”?
            I am always perplexed by how many women define their worth by these things – still, to each her own.
            Here is another situation where hanging onto behaviors or styles isn’t as helpful to our health as making a change.
            If you need those nails then consider what Maria Emmerich suggests and have gelatin in tea in the evening. This will strengthen your nails – but make sure you get her recommended gelatin. Not all gelatins are healthful.

    My son was diagnosed with Type 1 at 13 months old. Through my own research, I discovered the possible link between wheat consumption and T1, and we immediately pulled our entire family off of wheat (and all other grains, actually). That was 2 1/2 years ago, and his diabetes has not changed. We strictly follow Dr. Bernstein’s recommendation of no more than 12 carbs for breakfast, 6 for lunch, 6 for supper, and 0 for snacks, and he still requires both his basal and bolus insulin. In fact, if he eats zero carbs, and does not receive his basal insulin, his blood sugar will still continue to rise, and he will soon go into ketoacidosis.

    I don’t doubt that wheat elimination can help some T1s, but it is not a guaranteed cure.

    On a positive note, since going wheat free both my wife and I lost all of our excess weight and have never felt better!

    • Dr. Davis

      Thank you, Dan.

      That’s right: wheat elimination has potential to reverse type 1 diabetes in only a minority of cases and if undertaken immediately upon recognition of the diagnosis. It will most definitely not reverse the beta cell loss once for 1 last update 07 Aug 2020 it occurs. That’s right: wheat elimination has potential to reverse type 1 diabetes in only a minority of cases and if undertaken immediately upon recognition of the diagnosis.

      The real answer is to either eliminate wheat across the board before type 1 diabetes develops or find a means to identify those at risk and manage with diet.

        reverses diabetes type 2 variation (πŸ”΄ and headache) | reverses diabetes type 2 treatment optionshow to reverses diabetes type 2 for Dr Davis, it seems to me that research needs to, in a sense, go back in time to what Mom is eating while pregnant, and even to consider what happens if she ditches the wheat before she conceives.

        And, if one is going to look at Mom, maybe Dad also needs to watch his diet before conception. Surely if wheat and generally high carbs are dangerous, they must be affecting the sperm?

        Could this help to reduce the incidence of even T1 diabetes?

          As you have come to appreciate, Erica, these are really tough moral and logistical issues to address. I suspect you are right on all counts, but proving such things as in utero adverse effects is very, very tough.

          We DO know from both human and experimental models, however, that type 1 diabetes is substantially increased in incidence with exposure to the gliadin protein of wheat.

Consensus medicine doesn’t even have ears when it comes to nutrition. So, future parents, it’s up to you to puzzle out the obvious.

    Great article! But in truth, I carry my glucose monitor with me and use it throughout the day to remind myself I don’t HAVE to build revenues for Big Pharma. In addition to avoiding wheat and consuming more natural, healthful fats, I find that taking my blood sugar readings helps with self-awareness, and self-control, and helps me make adjustments in my eating or activity to keep my glucose levels from going too high.

        I’m prediabetic (A1C 6.I) and attempted to get a glucose monitor & test strips covered through Medicare Part B to help me PREVENT full-blown TD2 diabetes. No chance. In order to have the monitor and test strips (the bigger expense) covered my internist would have to fake a diagnosis which I think is Medicare fraud. Seems ironic that they won’t spend relatively little to prevent potentially much greater expenses due to complications of diabetes–penny wise, pound foolish as the saying goes. I eventually found a reasonably inexpensive monitor and test strips at Amazon and awaiting delivery. Doing my best despite the frustrating hurdles.

I have just recently discovered the wheat (actually all grains) free life style and the effects were immediately apparent. Within 2 months my HbA1c went from over 6 to 5.4 and my triglycerides went almost 300 to 165. Not to mention the 36 lbs lost… What scares me though is my two year old. All she will eat is chicken nuggets (breaded of course), pizza, pasta and grilled cheese sandwiches. She does do fine with fruits and vegetables but the basis of all her meals is of course wheat. I feel like I am poisoning my beautiful daughter and don’t know where to start to turn it around because she refuses to eat anything else.

    • reverses diabetes type 2 keto (β˜‘ nice) | reverses diabetes type 2 lifestyle changeshow to reverses diabetes type 2 for Dr. Davis

      Sadly, Rob, wheat consumption distorts the sense of taste, causing kids (as well as adults) to gravitate towards the flavors created by the processed food and fast food industries. It is not currently possible to confidently identify someone at risk for type 1 diabetes, but the antibody tests (e.g., antibodies against wheat and islet cells, among others) can be helpful Problem: You can still develop type 1 diabetes even in the absence of these antibodies in abnormal ranges.

      This is why I advocate wheat elimination for everyone, as the majority of adverse effects cannot be predicted.

    Dr Davis,

    as mentioned on another reply area. i have followed Dr. Neal Barnards “reversing Diabetes” for about a year and 3 months with great success. i have lost 50 lbs and my blood sugars are reversing. i was at a1c 10.9. First test after following Neal Barnard was 6.1, my most recent test was a 6.0. I have not been on diabetic meds since may of last year. His Theory is that being vegan (having animal fat, which fills your cells of fat ,which will not allow your body to absorb sugar) is what cures you of diabetes.(after the fat dissapates from your cells) although i have to tell you i do not feel that great…… bones ache mostly and i am afraid i am not getting proper protein. or something is amiss………. BUT… i have to say my blood sugars are in check……. i continually chk them several times a day. although they are not spot on and i know that 5.7 and below is best. the fact that after 6 years of taking oral meds i am no longer taking any and i am down 50-55 lbs i actaully consider this a success.
    however, i am addicted to pasta. OMG!!! i do buy really, really, good pasta. Deboles, spinach, inulin, jeruselum artichoke pasta. and i am still on wheat !!! i really like the idea of eating protein again… real protein like a steak, but …..i do not want to undo all the success i have had.
    so i am asking !!! can i actually have animal protein, as well as dairy, /cheese, egg and it not affect my blood sugar as long as i am not eating wheat?
    i have downloaded your book to my kindle and am intrigued thus far. Please tell me how i can eat this way and still lose weight and keep my blood sugars in check.

    thanks,
    Colleem

      Well, you might not like my answer, Colleen, BUT:

      1) Throw Barnard’s book in the trash where it belongs. Yes, it is better than the average processed diet, but it is not the dite that humans have evolved to follow.
      2) HbA1c of 6.1%, while better than the awful 10.9%, is still quite bad and continues to expose you to complications of glycation and diabetes. This is due to the continued inclusion of grains on the absurd dietary program he has you on. We aim for HbA1c of no higher than 5.0%, the level at which ALL phenomena of blood sugar/glycation/diabetes disappear.

      25 years ago, I followed something similar to the approach Barnard advocates. I promptly became a type 2 diabetic. I am no longer diabetic with a HbA1c of 4.8% on no medication.

  15. Bob

    Dr Davis: How do we respond when the news and on TV they cite recent reports that show to lower diabetes, heart disease, and to lower weight that one must eat more whole grains in order to lower these risk. Here is a study I just heard that they are using:
    http://www.nrjournal.com/article/S0271-5317%2814%2900005-0/fulltext

    The study says: “Whole grain (WG) foods have been shown to reduce chronic disease risk and overweight. Total dietary fiber is associated with WG and its health benefits.” Also, it says:
    Evidence from a meta-analysis of longitudinal studies among adults indicated an association between whole grain (WG) intake and reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and overweight.”
    So this only leads to confusion in America and people don’t know what to believe in. How can these studies seem to prove this?

    • Boundless

      > Whole grain (WG) foods have been shown to reduce chronic disease risk and overweight

      The key question is: compared to what?
      This study, as is typical (and consistent with “This study was funded by General Mills, Inc.”) basically compared a WG high gly diet to a refined grain hi gly diet. The funding source would never permit them to test against no-grain, low carb or keto.

      reverses diabetes type 2 treatments and regiments (β˜‘ diet) | reverses diabetes type 2 symptoms in womenhow to reverses diabetes type 2 for > How can these studies seem to prove this?

      Yes, if you turn the grain dial from 100 to 95, you see a 5% improvement. What happens when you turn that dial to 0, and don’t replace grain carbs with other junk carbs? The funding source knows the answer to that, and is unwilling to pay for it to be published.
