The word "diabetes" conjures up images of having to watch your diet like a hawk,
give yourself shots, or, at the very least take a bunch of pills and make counting calories and portion control
into some kind of a new religion. In other words no fun at all. Not something anybody would choose to
Yet more and more people are having to deal with
it. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has declared it to be epidemic in the United States. In 2010,
nearly 26 million U.S.people had diabetes. According to the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse, diabetes
costs $132 billion in the U.S. every year.
To better understand how not to become one of those
statistics, it's important to understand what diabetes is. Simply put, diabetes is a downstream problem of
pancreatic dysfunction. In particular, it's a problem making sufficient insulin - the hormone that regulates blood
This results in blood sugar levels that become way too
high, damaging various organs and tissues in the process. Insulin is made by particular pancreatic cells, called
beta cells, located in the Islets of Langerhans.
With these statistics rising at an alarming rate, great
interest exists in finding causes. While a number of theories abound, most overlook three of the most common ones.
Knowing these three is how you can start to reduce your odds of becoming one of those rising
1. Eliminate corn
syrup. This issue is something the Food and Drug Administration has decided to overlook,
but you don't have to overlook it and can take control of your personal intake. The FDA has known since 1930
that corn syrup (high fructose corn syrup) literally kills the insulin-producing beta cells of the
Nontheless, it has refused to regulate corn syrup out of
the food supply. Instead it has succumbed to pressure from the food industry. The food industry wants to add corn
syrup to everything, because it causes anyone ingesting it to crave the food to which it's been added. Those
cravings result in greater sales.
In that respect, the huge rise in corn syrup as a food
additive and the corresponding rise in the incidence of diabetes could be said to be caused by government
What this means is that, in working to normalize and
strengthen your pancreatic functioning, you will need to remove any sources of corn syrup from your diet. The
importance of this one factor cannot be overstressed.
2. Check for and eliminate
parasites. The second factor, and one that's often overlooked as a cause of diabetes,
particularly child-onset diabetes, is infestation of parasites. It is axiomatic that many people have parasites,
but few know it.
There are many types of parasites. Some types
create symptoms that are different from those others produce. The bottom line is that to restore and
maintain good pancreatic functioning, it is essential to get those critters gone, and that includes their
One of the symptoms that can remind you to suspect
parasites is craving sugar. Parasites love sugar, and they act like little dictators, 'telling' you that you
will eat sugar (or simple carbohydrates) and you will do it now. When you suspect your pancreas isn't functioning
right, consider parasites as a possible cause.
3. Eliminate food
intolerances. The third common contribution to pancreatic exhaustion is food
intolerances. Whether this is from the effect of the food on the pancreas directly, or the result of the
pancreas having to 'scramble' to attempt to metabolize the food is uncertain.
What is certain is that removing the offending food or
foods from the diet removes the pancreatic stress and makes a considerable contribution to normalizing its
Do these three things, and you'll be way ahead of the
game. You'll be reducing the chances that you'll become one of those rising statistics.
