Welcome to Peak Metabolism.

Here Is A Guide To Diabetes And Your Treatment

What Is Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes is typically a lifestyle driven disease whereby the glucose in the blood becomes too high. This chronic condition develops over time, whereby your pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin to regulate the blood glucose levels, and the cells respond poorly to insulin and take in less glucose.

Complications:

Tiredness
Blurred vision And Eye Damage
Excessive Thirst And Urination
Heart Disease
Brain Damage
Permanent Kidneys Damage

What Are The Causes Of Diabetes?

The causes of type 2 diabetes, is where the cells in the muscles, fat and liver become resistant to insulin and the reason for that is excessive consumption of glucose, coming from refined carbohydrates (bread, pasta, cakes, pastries, rice, noodles) and not exercising enough or at the right intensity. Race can also play a role, if you’re south Asian, native American, Hispanic or black you’re at greater risk. Additional factors like gut microbiome imbalances, toxic exposures can also increase the risk of diabetes to occur.

How Do You Know If You Have Diabetes?

How Do You Know If You Have Diabetes?

Diabetes is diagnosed when your doctor tests your hba1c, your fasting glucose and possibly your post prandial glucose levels. If your Hba1c score is above 6.5%, or your fasting blood glucose is about 125 mg/dl or your post prandial glucose after 2 hours is 200mg/dl then these results are indicative of diabetes. What we’re missing however, is the diagnosis of pre-diabetes or insulin resistance which is only really picked up when assessing fasting insulin or post-prandial insulin levels.

How Is Diabetes Treated?

Typically your doctor will recommend some general lifestyle advice like exercising more, modifying your diet. They may also recommend some medication to lower blood glucose and help your body secrete more insulin so that you can lower the blood glucose. Other drugs include GLP-1 receptor agonists which slow digestion and help lower blood sugar levels. Insulin therapy is also recommended, raising the body’s insulin level to lower the glucose in the blood.

Diabetes Reversal Vs. Diabetes Management

Diabetes Reversal Vs. Diabetes Management

Diabetes management is focused on stabilizing the patients blood glucose level, and stopping the condition getting any worse. The medications are very effective at stabilizing the disease, however the longer the patient stays on medication the greater the risk to complications of medications. For example with insulin therapy, there could be weight gain, swelling in arms and legs and low blood sugar.

Diabetes reversal is only truly achieved when a person restricts the carbohydrate levels to less than 20g / day of net carbohydrates. This is typically what’s called a ketogenic diet. Combining a ketogenic diet together with Intermittent fasting whereby you restrict your eating patterns to an 8 hour eating window accelerates the return of insulin sensitivity. The success does depend on the severity of diabetes experienced by the patient. In addition to doing a ketogenic diet, specific exercise routines are recommended to be done daily to improve muscle sensitivity to insulin.

Agnes C.

I’ve been going to Miles for almost six years now for evaluation and treatment of Type II Diabetes, hypertension, chronic fatique syndrome, GERD, nutritional imbalance and brain fog. He has been of great help! My blood sugars and haemoglobin A1C are improved, blood pressure has been lowered, I am feeling more energetic, burping less, less confused with better focus, and I am able to put thoughts into words and retrieve my memories. I’m truly grateful.
