How To Prevent Diabetes. Are You At Risk? (#1 Health Threat EVER!)

September 4, 2019


how to prevent diabetes in this video
you will learn not only how to prevent diabetes but also how to prevent the
earlier versions called pre-diabetes and insulin resistance diabetes is the
greatest medical threat the world has ever seen but it is preventable and even
reversible more than one-third the population today has insulin resistance
also known as pre-diabetes and seven out of eight people are heading in that
direction but as big a problem as diabetes is an even bigger problem is
that as far as prevention is concerned they’re measuring the wrong thing and
the standard treatment for diabetes and pre-diabetes and insulin resistance at
best can solve one problem but in the process they create another problem that
can be just as severe this may be the greatest health issue that we are facing
today because it is so widespread and so misunderstood but before we’re done
today you will understand the mechanisms involved and you will know how to
prevent and even reverse diabetes coming right up I’m doctor Ekberg I’m a holistic doctor
and a former Olympian in the decathlon and if you’d like to truly master health by
understanding how the body really works make sure that you subscribe and hit
that notification bell so that you don’t miss anything
so it is well known that these are huge huge problems today and I got these
numbers from some publications from the American Diabetes Association that today
in the United States we have 30 million diabetics and on top of that there’s 8
million who are undiagnosed we have 86 million pre-diabetics and pre-diabetic
means that if you don’t change something you’re most likely going to have
diabetes in about five years or so and 90% of those people do not know that
they have it if we want to go a little further then we can also say that even
if you’re not officially in the criteria for pre-diabetes anyone who is
overweight is probably most likely having some degree of insulin resistance
and is heading in that direction and 87% of population in the US would account
about 250 million people so that’s the scope of this problem that the 30
million that are diagnosed that’s just the tip of the iceberg and even so those
thirty million accounts for one out of five healthcare dollars the diabetes
healthcare is 20% of the total healthcare diabetes related costs and
when we take the older population in Medicare it’s one out of three Medicare
dollars so we’re all paying for this indirectly through lost production
through suffering through increased health in health insurance costs and
through taxes on the Medicare so it’s not just a human suffering but if these
30 million grow into several hundred million then it’s going to be a huge
huge financial problem as well today each day we will get
forty six hundred and sixty new diagnosed cases of diabetes we will have
two hundred and ninety five amputations today and we will have a hundred and
thirty seven new cases of kidney failure that will be end-stage and required
dialysis for the rest of their life but then some people say that well you keep
telling us to eat less carbs but in Asia they eat lots of carbs their whole diets
are based on on rice and they don’t have any diabetes well that’s a myth think
again that was true while food was scarce but today when food is less
scarce the two countries that are growing the fastest are India and China
which are traditionally very dependent on rice and carbohydrates so today
there’s almost three times as many diabetics in India as there are in the
US and in China there’s almost four times as many diabetics there are four
hundred and fifteen million diabetics in the world today and in China they’re
getting close to 50% pre-diabetes so this is not a limited problem it’s not a
cultural it’s the fact that we eat too many carbohydrates and because food is
no longer scarce then those carbohydrates are creating insulin
resistance and diabetes we can eat a certain amount or a fairly large amount
of carbohydrates as long as food is scarce because if there’s enough time to
the next meal then we’re gonna store some food and we’re gonna burn off the
food before the next meal but more food is no longer scarce carbohydrate is not
a food that we can tolerate some of you have seen this but for those who are new
we’ll just do a quick review that the mechanism of developing diabetes and
insulin resistance is sugar and when we say sugar we mean all forms of
carbohydrate because grain and rice and potato
they are starches and starch is only ten minutes
away from becoming sugar it has very very high impact on blood sugar and
therefore very high impact on insulin so sugar in all its forms drive insulin
when insulin goes up and it goes up frequently and it goes up to high levels
frequently then that insulin is going to store excess fuel into the cell when the
cell can’t handle anymore the cell becomes insulin resistant because it
says I can’t handle any more fuel diabetes is nothing but and we’re
talking type-2 diabetes of course is nothing but a late stage development of
insulin resistance it is an adaptation and we’ve talked about that in some
other videos we’ll give you a link and some references at the end the
authorities are very aware of this problem of the scope of the problem so
they’re creating more and more campaigns to inform the public of how big a
problem this is so I’ve got these numbers from a couple of those
publications and each time they say join us to learn how to fight this costly
disease come and learn how to combat this costly disease at diabetes org
slash Congress published by the American Diabetes Association and that’s all good
and well that they’re trying to inform but what are they trying to do what is
the end goal what is the treatment well unfortunately the treatment consists of
eating more sugar and exercising and they tell you to lose weight and then
they tell you to take medication that will make you gain weight and everyone
who has been on metformin or insulin for a while knows that it will make you gain
weight that’s what insulin does it’s a storage hormone and they confuse it
because they tell you to lose the weight they’ve seen skinny people have less
diabetes but they get it backwards the fat is not causing the insulin
resistance the insulin resistance is causing the weight gain so when you take
medication that will drive the fuel into the cell
you’re increasing insulin resistance you’re increasing weight and you’re
making it impossible to reverse this process as a result I’ve had many many
people come through my office and say that oh yeah I have diabetes but it is
okay it is being managed I’m seeing a doctor he has it under control and under
control means that they’re suppressing blood sugar and in the process this
person can look forward to living ten years shorter have more complications
and spent two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in the treatment of their
disease if they get diagnosed by age 50 until the time they die that
unfortunately is what it means to manage the disease so how can the problem be so
misunderstood and the main reason is that we think diabetes type 1 and type 2
are the same thing when they are total opposites and we need to realize that
even though there are 415 million people and they’re expecting that to double in
a few decades this disease or this adaptation this condition did not exist
150 200 years ago when they discovered diabetes when they first started talking
about diabetes they talked about some mysterious thing where the blood sugar
was incredibly high and all of those cases were type 1 that was when some
process had destroyed the pancreas and they had lost the ability to make
insulin and if you don’t have insulin you can’t get the blood sugar out of the
bloodstream anything you eat gets into the bloodstream but it can’t get out and
now the blood sugar is go sky-high and they get really high blood sugar and
they have no insulin so in that case in type 1 diabetes insulin will save their
life it is absolutely necessary but then they think that type 2 diabetes is the
same thing type 1 is kind of a disease if you
want to call it that because something is broken type 2 is not a disease
nothing’s broken it’s all working we’re just pushing the system into an
impossible place so type 2 diabetes also has very high blood sugar
but unlike type 1 type 2s have a lot of insulin they have too much so when we
treat it with insulin we make the problem worse
so these are two completely different things one requires insulin one should
never have any more and here’s the problem with focusing on the blood sugar
thinking that the blood sugar is the problem blood glucose blood sugar is
actively controlled your body goes through an incredible amount of effort
to keep the blood sugar within a certain range it really really loves to have it
between 80 to 120 anything above that it will pump out and it will store for
future use when blood sugar goes down we can retrieve it convert it into blood
sugar and energy so our entire fuel economy in the body the physiology
around energy is around keeping the blood sugar within a certain level
storing the excess retrieving it when it’s too low but keeping it in there
it’s a managed variable so when we measure it we measure it after it has
been controlled it only tells us if it’s being controlled or if it has failed it
doesn’t tell us where it’s heading so as an analogy right now in Georgia it is
very very warm we’re in July and in the American South it’s been averaging
about 95 degrees Fahrenheit everyday that’s about 35 degrees Celsius for
those of you or abroad and let’s say that someone asked us could you do a
little study could you measure your temperature in Georgia because we want
to figure out how much air conditioning how much
electricity were going to need to keep it comfortable inside so okay I’d be I’d
be glad to I’ll measure the temperature so then I measured the temperature and I
get it back to them and I said well I measured 72 degrees it was 22 degrees
Celsius 72 degrees Fahrenheit and they say that’s impossible where did you
measure and I said in my living room that’s where it’s comfortable that’s
where the the temperature has been controlled okay do you see how
ridiculous it is to measure a variable that has already been altered that’s
what we’re doing with glucose when we’re measuring the glucose we want to measure
the factors that influence the glucose we want to measure the insulin we want
to measure how hard does the body have to work at controlling that glucose so
here’s how insulin resistance develops we talked about the mechanism sugar
insulin the cell starts resisting that’s insulin resistance but how do we measure
that well let’s say in year one we measure glucose and we measure insulin
and they’re well balanced we have balance between where insulin sensitive
then five years later we measure again and the glucose is the same because it’s
a controlled variable that the body has suppressed it it’s working to keep it
there but insulin went up to double so the
cells are becoming resistant because it takes twice as much insulin to manage
the blood sugar and then five years later the glucose is still the same but
it takes three times more so if we only measure glucose we’re not getting any
useful information it’s like measuring the inside of the living room to figure
out how hot it is outside okay we’re not getting relevant information you can’t
measure the suppressed variable you have to change you have to
measure the variable that is change based on the demand and the effort so
next we want to understand something very very important that there really
two problems and traditional diabetes care handles one and creates more of the
other so the two problems are on the one hand blood glucose elevated blood
glucose and on the other hand elevated insulin resistance because these have
different effects they cause different problems so if we let the blood glucose
run rampant then we’re going to have what’s called micro vascular disease or
micro vessel disease that means the tiny tiny blood vessels in the body they’re
gonna swell and get inflamed and they’re gonna have problems which is going to
cause blindness because we have lots of small blood vessels in the retina in the
eye we’re going to have kidney problems kidney disease because we have lots and
lots of tiny blood vessels in the filtering apparatus of the kidney and
we’re gonna have neuropathy because there’s lots of little blood vessels
around the fine nerve endings in hands and fingers especially it is super super
important to control the blood sugar because otherwise we’re gonna get all of
these things but we have to understand that in controlling the blood sugar if
we control the blood sugar through medication we are pushing the extra fuel
into the cell who is already overloaded it doesn’t want it so now we are
increasing the insulin resistance and in doing that we are creating what’s called
metabolic syndrome and metabolic syndrome is everything else that people
die from which is increased blood pressure cholesterol chronic
inflammation cardiovascular disease stroke and Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
disease neurodegenerative diseases dementia so we have two different
packages of problems and treating one will create the other so you have a
different choices you can keep eating like you’re eating and not get the
treatment and now you’re gonna have the blindness kidney problems and neuropathy
or you can keep eating like you’re doing and take the treatment suppress control
the blood sugar and get metabolic syndrome and you keep your fingers and
toes but you get stroke cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s or there is
another option and that is you don’t keep eating the way you have been you
don’t follow the general guidelines of eating 300 grams of carbohydrate in
times of food abundance but you change something in order to prevent this we
have to first understand the mechanism that it’s about insulin there is there
are factors that increase insulin and there are factors that allow insulin to
drop down and those factors that increase our sugar more sugar increases
insulin higher frequency of meals increases insulin that’s so obvious you
eat something that drives blood sugar then you’re going to get insulin the
more often you do that the more frequently you’re gonna put a burst of
insulin into the system the less time the system is going to have to recover
so the opposite of that the factors that decrease insulin then is to do the exact
opposite you reduce the sugar you reduce the carbohydrates that means low carb
high fat diets / keto that means reducing the frequency of meals
intermittent fasting and then you want to learn a little bit more about the
factors that are contributing to blood sugar such as stress that if you’re
stressed all the time you’re going to make
cortisol cortisol increases blood sugar which will drive insulin and also drive
insulin resistance and then we have this last thing and I recently did a video
you’re welcome to check that out about exercise because exercise can work both
ways that you do want to increase your exercise it is a good thing but you want
to increase the type of exercise that does not increase cortisol because if
you exercise a lot that increases cortisol you’ll actually be driving
insulin resistance while you’re trying to reverse it so you have to understand
this and then you have to measure the variable that matters which is insulin
the insulin is going to change relatively soon compared to the glucose
you could measure insulin and find out in the very early stages how where you
are on the insulin resistance we’ve got some videos on that as well on Homa ir
and you could save yourself ten years of not having to reverse something and
backtrack you can actually prevent it by measuring it and addressing it early if
you already have diabetes if you’re already diabetic what do you do you
don’t do anything different you measure you see where you are you understand the
mechanism and you reverse the adaptation you reverse that mechanism and you may
have to do more to reverse it you probably have to do more to reverse it
than you did then someone who just needs to prevent it because you have more
momentum you have more degeneration it’s been going on longer you have less
reserves there’s more habit in the body and so on and so on but it doesn’t
really change anything the principles hold it’s the same and once you apply
them you can start measuring and see if it’s working if it is great if it’s not
do more cut the carbs further increase the time of fasting
and as long as you apply these principles it will work so unlike the
medical model where they treat one thing and create the other when you do this
you improve both because you’re addressing the root cause you’re not
doing a cover-up you’re not trying to push the body from one place to the
other you’re allowing it to do what it’s supposed to do if you enjoy this kind of

    This is now my number one informational resource, simply because it's detailed and easily relayed. Also, not being a keto fanatic helps too! Would you say that low carb has the same efficacy as ketosis over time? I tried (and achieved) ketosis about 6 weeks ago, but due to very high levels of stress I had to stop due to tachycardia (not controlled with electrolytes). I'm staying under 100g/day at the moment and will lower it as I see fit over time. I already fast 16-18 hours a day most days. Your video on exercise was an absolute eye opener for me as I have responded badly to intense exercise for a few years (because of the stress) and my Doctor completely rejected the idea that it was even a condition.

    This lectures defines cleary and concisely what diabetes is and how to reverse it. I can attest to this as I reversed this silent killer when other diets (macrobiotics too many wholesome carbs, vegan etc.) only slowed it down a bit. The complication continued to evolve and it was only the low carb keto diet that was able to arrest the metabolic decline. Good job, doc.

    @4:09 & 5:18 So does that mean you can only eat high carb (vegan) diet if youโ€™re constantly in a (bioavailable) calorie deficit?

    Hi, I am pre diabetic and I have been watching your videos and learning a lot. I had gestational diabetes with my pregnancies and now going through menopause my type 2 is beginning. I have brought my A1c from 6.4 in December to 5.4 in June, but my low carb diet is not enough I must walk after my meals to keep my blood sugar below 125. If I take a vigorous walk after I eat my blood sugar is better, but your video on exercise said not to get your heart rate up. Did I misunderstand? I have never had weight issues in fact I went from 131 lbs in December to 113 now, but still struggling with high blood sugars. I have cut grains, sugars and pasta but itโ€™s not enough. Any other advice would be appreciated. Thank you

    Hello Dr. Ekberg no matter how many YT videos by multiple sources there's always the the same common denominator. When if ever will the rest of the medical world acknowledge the problem. Oh that's right it's not about our health it's all about the money. Greed and profit!!!!

    Beer n ice cream are my favs.I quit most white stuff but eat my favs that cause weight gain so obviously insulin is working overtime to store the extra glucose.

    Very good video Dr. Ekberg. It's a shame that most people fall into the spider's web which is the current medical system of managing symptoms and diseases with medication. I was once there too until I found Keto. My life has been saved because of people like you educating people around the world. Thank you.

    Dr. Ekberg, the value of your videos surpasses the cosmos. My research hasn't revealed this question: Are "all" of one's red blood cells replaced in 120 days? I dropped from 5.8 to 5.3 in 137 days, July 17. I hoped I've replaced "all" of those sugary cells with clean new ones. Thanks. Know you are busy, so no answer is not a problem.

    Question: how do we know that it's not that the insulin our body makes is at fault ? And why does the insulin we shoot up always work ? Please explain if you have the time :O)

    Nice video, keep sharing.
    Ayurveda also suggest not to do heavy work/excercise after taking meals, so your statement of not to exercise after meals is inline with age old healing system.
    Thanks

    Hello Dr. Sten Ekberg, what is your opinion on this study from 2018:
    " The new study โ€” led by Ana Clรกudia Munhoz Bonassa, a researcher at the University of Sรฃo Paulo in Brazil โ€” suggests that intermittent fasting may impair the normal activity of the pancreas and the production of insulin, which may, in turn, raise the risk of type 2 diabetes." ?
    Thank you.

    Been watching your videos since being diagnosed with Type 2 in late June. Using your advice (and those of Dr. Jason Fung) I turned my Type 2 around in less than a month. Was peaking at 486 after taking a supposedly healthy breakfast made out of oatmeal as per the US and Canadian diabetic associations. That was measured the 1st day after starting to wear a FreeStyle Libre. That was bad. After switching to Keto and not eating any high glycemic food I am now stable at a daily average of around 100, with low in the 75 and highs at 136. This really works and I feel a ton better. Hard to tell how long I have been undiagnosed Type 2 as I am pretty thin and fit (157 pounds before dropping 10 pounds due to diabetes). I am now stable at 146 and rising ever so slowly. Exercising for about 30 minutes a day taking a walk after dinner is also part of what I did. So eating habit change (keto), minor fasting, zero medication and exercise = success!

    I would be interested in a video speaking about "fit" type 2 individuals and how to best approach things. Is keto the best nutrition model? So far it appears to be working fine for me but perhaps there might be things I should change to better reverse diabetes. Is fasting still recommended if you are fit? Is it only good if you are overweight? Are there alternatives if you don't want to lose weight but still reverse insulin resistance.

    It's intentional by the global elites. They control everything because they control the money/currencies. The food pyramids and dietary guidelines that government agencies release are the exact opposite of what we really need. Doctors and medical mistakes are the 3rd leading cause of death in the US. It has become all about profits which money is a tool used to obtain power and control so all of this is ultimately about control over other people. Disordered human beings with personality disorders such as Cluster B disorders like psychopaths, sociopaths, narcissists etc desire control over other people above all else. They don't care about the planet or other people unless they themselves stand to gain.

    We are continually being told in the media that the Mediterranean diet is the best in the world, that itโ€™s so good for your heart.
    I live in a Mediterranean country where they eat this diet, and T2 diabetes is incredibly common, more so than anywhere else I have lived. The most common phrase I hear from older people is โ€œI have sugarโ€ which is this nationโ€™s colloquial way of saying โ€œIโ€™m diabeticโ€. So hence Iโ€™m a bit sceptical about this apparently wonderful Mediterranean diet!

    Can someone tell me how I can grow my nails fast? I feel like they grow sooooo soooo slow. And idk if itโ€™s from a lack of certain vitamin or a problem within the body. My hair is nice and long but it took 5 years to grow like to my ribs which I think is also slow

    Hi Dr Ekberg. I have listen to other doctors such as; Dr. Barnard, Dr Greger, Dr. McDougall and others. These doctors blame Type 2 on saturated fats in animal products. So I am not sure who to believe. Can you give me your thoughts on this?

    Hi Dr Ekberg. I really enjoy watching all your videos and find them extremely informative. So thank you! I wondered if you could give me some personal guidance. I have family history of diabetes and developed gestational diabetes some 20 years ago. I have been prediabetic since then as revealed by annual blood tests. My last A1c reading was 6.0%. I have been slim and active all my life. My diet has been mostly healthy consisting of lots of fruits & vegetables, nuts & seeds and quite large amounts of potatoes and grains, Would you recommend Keto Diet for me to reverse / control my condition? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!

    The obesity rate is only 1/10 of U.S here in Japan, but the diabetics are about the same in both countries. We also have the fastest growing number of dementia in the whole world. This sums up.

    This is the best explanation I've ever heard about diabetes!
    I can't do intermittent fasting because am too skinny!
    I'm a 64 year old woman with type 2 diabetes who's 5' 4" tall, and presently I'm only 106 lbs, (I was 115 lbs before I started my fasting).
    I tried eating 2 meals daily and lost so much weight that I got very skinny, weak and sick; I lost 18 lbs, imagine I was down to 97 lbs!
    I'm now having 3 meals daily and trying to regain a few pounds which is very difficult. Not everyone can do intermittent fasting, AND skinny people DO HAVE diabetes!
    Thank you Dr. Ekberg for this wonderful video; God bless you.
