Blood Sugar

blood sugarHypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and diabetes ( high blood sugar ) have become rampant detractors of health in this country. According to the CDC, there are 900,000 new cases of diabetes reported every year. Diabetes is determined by a fasting glucose reading of 126 in the blood or higher. Pre-diabetic or borderline diabetic is 100 to 125 fasting glucose.

Diabetes results from defects in insulin production that cause sugar to build up in the body. It is the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S.

The statistics are even more grim when it comes to the prevalence of pre-diabetes (impaired fasting glucose).

Almost 26 percent of U.S. adults over the age of 20 are pre-diabetics, and more than 35 percent of seniors, 60 and older. In total, that’s 57 million Americans walking around with pre-diabetes, in addition to the 24 million that have already crossed the line.


The additional health complications that diabetes fosters are multiple, and quite serious, including:

•    Heart disease and stroke – Death from heart disease and risk for stroke is two to four times higher among people with diabetes

•    High blood pressure – 75 percent of diabetics have high blood pressure (130/180 mm Hg or higher)

•    Blindness -- Diabetes is the leading cause of new cases of blindness among adults aged 20 to 74 years

•    Kidney disease – Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure. In 2005, more than 45,700 people began treatment for end-stage kidney disease in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and another 178,700 were living on chronic dialysis

•    Nervous system disease -- About 60 to 70 percent of people with diabetes have mild to severe forms of nervous system damage such as: impaired sensation or pain in hands or feet, poor digestion, carpal tunnel syndrome and erectile dysfunction

•    Amputations – In 2004, 71,000 lower limb amputations due to diabetes were performed in the U.S.

•    Dental disease -- Almost one-third of people with diabetes have severe periodontal disease

•    Pregnancy complications -- Poorly controlled diabetes before conception and during the first trimester of pregnancy among women with type 1 diabetes can cause major birth defects in 5 to 10 percent of pregnancies, and spontaneous abortions in 15 to 20 percent of pregnancies

•    There’s yet another updated study that warrants mentioning here: the American Diabetes Association’s (ADA) study on Economic Cost of Diabetes in the U.S. in 2007

•    The total estimated cost of diabetes in the U.S. in 2007 tallies up to $174 billion. This includes $ 116 billion in excess (read: unnecessary) medical expenditures, and $58 billion in reduced national productivity.

•    Having diabetes not only plunders your health, but your pocketbook too. People with diagnosed diabetes incur an average medical expense of $11,744 per year, almost 2.5 times higher than those who do not have diabetes.

•    Conventional treatment that is focused on fixing the symptom of elevated blood sugar, rather than addressing the underlying disease, is doomed to fail in most cases. Treatments that concentrate merely on lowering blood sugar while raising insulin levels can actually worsen rather than remedy the actual problem of metabolic miscommunication. It just trades one evil for another.

•    Since most treatments for type 2 diabetes utilize drugs that either raise insulin or lower blood sugar, the tragic result is that the typical, conventional medical treatment for diabetes contributes to the additional diseases and the shortened lifespan that diabetics experience.

•    They also state that table sugar is okay, as long as you readjust your medications to compensate appropriately (i.e. take more drugs to increase your fat cell storage capacity). Using toxic artificial sweeteners in lieu of sugar also gets the green light.

•    Many of these recommendations are not based on what’s nutritionally healthy. They’re based on industry lobbying – just like the USDA’s Food Pyramid, which is fraught with industry conflicts of interest.

•    With the standard nutritional recommendations the incidence of diabetes and obesity has skyrocketed, and has become one of the worst epidemics the world has ever seen.


The prevalence of type 2 diabetes is rising rapidly and is striking people at much younger ages, according to a just-published study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

•    Researchers looked at data from 1990 and 1998 and found that the overall rate of diabetes increased 33% during that time

•    Even more significant was the finding that the rate of diabetes among people in their 30s increased nearly 70%.

•    Researchers found increased rates among all ages, races, and educational levels.


The researchers also note that their results probably significantly underestimate the percentage of people with diabetes, since it is not uncommon for the disorder to be present for as long as 12 years before being properly diagnosed.

There are several types of diabetes, with Type II being the most common.  Type I is identified as the complete destruction of little isolates of langohons, however it is being discovered that that is not completely true.

Diabetes is considered the poor handling of insulin and often times people are being told that they are insulin resistant. Consequently, they are treated as being insulin resistant. Stunning research done out of the University of California/Irvine and the University of Pennsylvania has shown that between 65% and 80% of all Type II diabetes, that the condition and the insulin resistance are driven by some type of infection with nano bacteria being the most common.

An article written in JAMA in the 1950’s cited a research program in which diabetics that went on an all raw food diet, had a 100% fix rate. Yet when they returned to cooked food, the Type II diabetes returned. Nano bacteria thrives in cooked food and when a person’s natural HCL stomach acid drops too low, the nana bacteria is able to gain access to body organs and the pancreas is its most desirable target in most cases. Other target areas include in order: the heart; the arteries, the kidneys, the spleen and the liver.

Other Drivers that research has shown to be contributing drivers in Type II Diabetes include:

•    Chemical insults to the body in which an aberrant gene is expressed (These chemical insults often come from fried foods; charbroiled foodsprocessed meats; aluminum dioxide underarm deodorants; after shave; diesel fumes; hair spray; American grapes or raisins; pesticided food; cigarette smoke.)

•    Interference Fields such as an appendectomy; a leg scar

•    Bad teeth

•    Vaccinations

•    Diets containing MSG; transfats; aspartame

•    Diets containing high amounts of canola oil

•    Parasites – it has been shown that Giardia’s excrement has access and an affinity to the pancreas.


According to Dr Bruce Lipton, diabetes is not genetic 99% of the time. Some have reached the conclusion it is however Dr Lipton states it is erroneous thinking and the reason people are deceived is because typically families develop similar lifestyles and dietary habits the increase the vulnerability. Yet when family members develop different lifestyles and dietary habits, the results are quite dissimilar.

Juvenile Diabetes – it has been observed typically has a very low HCL levels caused by the lack of healthy salt (not garbage table salt) or from extreme exercise.  There have been cases resolved when the toxic sites and Interference Fields caused by a vaccination were cleared along with the restoration of normal HCL.   
 

Insulin Dependant


Many Americans Have Pre-Diabetes which in essence Is insulin resistance syndrome a person loses her ability to manage insulin effectively. The syndrome, if not treated with lifestyle changes, can develop into:

•    Heart disease

•    Non-alcoholic fatty liver

•    Possibly some cancers, such as colon or ovarian cancer

•    The good news is diet, exercise, good nutrition, special detoxes can help eliminate the insulin-resistance syndrome

•    According to Dr Joseph Mercola, nearly 75% of the American adult population have the insulin-resistance condition

Yet research is now showing that the underlying driver to insulin resistance is usually an infection.

A guideline to determine if you might me insulin resistance do the following: Just divide your HDL level by your cholesterol. That percentage should be above 24%. You can also do the same thing with your triglycerides and HDL ratio. That percentage should be below 2.
