The Process Called Diabetes
As more is learned about diabetes, the definition of disease patterns
because increasingly complex. Scandinavian researchers have identified 5
types:” Adult-onset diabetes consists of five types of disease that have
different physiological and genetic profiles, rather than the traditional
type 1 and 2 classification. Gathering data on almost 15 000 patients from
across five cohorts in Sweden and Finland, they found that using six
standard measurements identified five clusters of patients with diabetes.
These divided into three severe and two mild forms of disease: one
corresponding to type 1 diabetes and the remaining four representing
subtypes of type 2 diabetes. The clusters included one of very
insulin-resistant individuals at significantly higher risk of diabetic
nephropathy, another of relatively young insulin deficient individuals with
poor metabolic control (high HbA1c), and a large group of elderly patients
with the most benign disease course. Crucially, treatment often did not
correspond to the type of diabetes. The classification of diabetes into type
1 and type 2 relies predominantly on the presence or absence, respectively,
of autoantibodies against pancreatic beta-cell antigens and younger age. On
this basis, 75% to 85% of patients are identified as having type 2
diabetes. Recent research on glutamate acid decarboxylase antibodies (GADA)
and gene sequencing has demonstrated that type 2 diabetes in particular is
highly heterogeneous.” (Liam Davenport Diabetes Consists of Five Types, Not Two, Say Researchers -

Diet Revision Improves Diabetes
People with diabetes have a food-disease. They have the task of changing
their food choices and managing their diet carefully. This is a difficult task.
We develop a perspective on diabetic management and reveal issues that are not
well understood. We will suggest intelligent strategies for self-management of
diabetes. Renewed concerns about the safety of popular drugs that lower blood
sugar should focus attention on non-drug strategies.
Understanding diabetes has become more difficult as more is learned. In all
biology, increasing complexity is revealed by ongoing research. Since glucose is
the principle source of energy for all life, complex systems of glucose
regulation have evolved. Eating behavior is steered towards high sugar foods
that, once eaten, require prompt metabolic responses to utilize and store
glucose for later use. Diabetes 2 involves a complex of disorders that start
with appetite deregulation and continue through disordered metabolism of
glucose, cholesterol and fatty acids. Diabetes 2 is a progressive disorder.
Early corrective action is highly desirable.
The Supreme Importance of Diet Revision
Standard medical treatment protocols for Diabetes always mention diet
revision and then quickly proceed to drug options. While food control is always
mentioned, the critical, decisive importance of diet revision and exercise is
not emphasized. Diet revision is neglected in favor of drug treatments. Diet
revision means changing your food choices and learning how to self regulate by
adjusting food choices and food amounts.
The odd reasoning in medical practice is that even though eating the wrong
food contributed to or even caused the disease, you can just go to the store and
buy a drug that will excuse you from changing the cause. Although some of the
chemicals for sale at the pharmacy may reduce some consequences of eating too
much of the wrong food, a smart person will get busy and remove the cause of the
If you follow common arguments about diabetic diets, then all diabetics
should eat a low carbohydrate, low fat, low protein diet. The only way you can
achieve all three goals is to eat a low food diet. Indeed, reducing caloric
intake is the key to success. Another key to success is to increase your
energy expenditure by enjoying a more active life. When you exercise more, your
muscles grown in size and strength and become more metabolically active. No drug
can compete with beneficial changes in metabolism that exercise creates.
Exercise acts on all the key metabolic organs and all the signaling molecules
that control metabolism.
