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 have.

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 sugar.

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 statistics.

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 pancreas,

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 regulations.

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 eggs.

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 function.

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.
