Type 2 Diabetes Complications

DO NOT Ignore The Seriousness of Type 2 Diabetes

What is Type 2 Diabetes?

When carbohydrates are eaten the body breaks them down into simple sugars that enter the bloodstream; as a result the pancreas releases insulin.

Insulin is a hormone that allows the body’s cells to absorb and use sugars from the blood for producing energy.

When the body does not make any or enough insulin, or utilise the insulin correctly, blood sugar (glucose) levels rise.   High blood glucose or Hyperglycemia is a symptom that characterizes diabetes.

Insufficient insulin production and / or resistance to the actions of insulin can cause diabetes to develop.

Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes.

There is growing evidence that type 2 diabetes may have an autoimmune component and is not solely a metabolic disorder.  Studies have found that insulin resistance may be the result of immune system cells attacking the body’s tissues.

When someone has this disease, the body becomes resistant to the normal effects of insulin.  If you have type 2 diabetes your body does not use insulin properly.

This is called “insulin resistance”… meaning! the hormone insulin is being released, but a person loses the ability to respond appropriately.  The body compensates and keeps up for a period of time by producing more insulin, but eventually the insulin receptor sites burnout.

Every system in the body can be affected  

Someone may begin to feel lethargic and fatigue easy, develop digestion issues, put on weight, sleep poorly or find their vision is deteriorating.

Do Not Become Complacent!!

The seriousness of Type 2 Diabetes cannot be underestimated.   Someone that has been diagnosed with this disease cannot afford to become complacent.

If left to its own devices and harmful habits are not changed; and measures are not put in place to reverse it; it may lead to serious complications. These include; kidney damage, blindness, amputations and there is nothing more serious than death.

The “SNOWBALL EFFECT” of Medicating Type 2 Diabetes

The doctor may play it down and say that someone will be ok and that it’s perfectly manageable with medication.  Unfortunately this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Once someone starts on medications to manage type 2 diabetes; they need to understand that their health problems may continue to deteriorate.  If fact, using the word “manage” is incorrect.  It’s not manageable, it may be just the start of more and more problems.

Just because someone has a pill now to control their blood sugar and it appears in control; don’t think for a second everything is ok.

The next pill may be a statin drug to control their cholesterol.   In turn, another to control their high blood pressure.  Next there may be antacids for the reflux.  Following on, probably painkillers and anti-inflammatories for the muscle and joint pain.

The cause is still unaddressed; chronic stress will compound & systemic damage will keep occurring.  This is the road leading to a very miserable life.

Following the diagnosis of type 2 diabetes.   If someone chooses the medical route and doesn’t change their diet and lifestyle as well.  The chances of ever getting well or their health actually improving are slim to none.

Type 2 Diabetes is a Metabolic Disorder & Cannot Be Passed On

Contrary to what we have been lead to believe; type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder that is earned.  Self-inflicted by poor diet and lifestyle choices (not genetics).

Yes, it runs in families, although so does poor diet and self-destructive lifestyle choices.

I know that may sound a little harsh, but its reality.  Someone may be predisposed to this disease because of their family dynamics.  Although, it’s how they choose to live their life as an individual that determines if it will manifest.

Most people are unaware that they are travelling down this destructive path until things start falling apart.  The silent / under the radar manifestation of this disease can take many years before they get the diagnosis.

Type 2 diabetes is one of many serious diseases; left unaddressed it has the ability to destroy people’s lives.  It may also impact the lives of family and loved ones.

Not only may their lives be put on hold to look after someone suffering with the devastating complications.  Constant care may also be needed; and the financial burden may be enormous.

If Caught Early Enough, Type 2 Diabetes is Reversible!

Excess weight & Obesity are common in those with this disease.  Adopting a healthy diet and exercise plan is the only way back to optimal health (for each individual).

To reverse Type 2 diabetes naturally certain foods will need to be removed completely as they negatively affect blood sugar levels.  Other foods will need to be incorporated into the diet, along with specific supplementation.

Daily exercise will support the metabolism and may help to reduce the effects of the disease.  Exercise will also help to improve glucose levels, blood pressure, heart health, cholesterol and ultimately quality of life.

Type 2 Diabetes may be Reversed Naturally

For a lot of people this will be a big learning experience; this is a classic example of having to learn the hard way.

Changing a lifetime of eating habits, for most, won’t come easy.   There is help available to those who reach out and ask for it.  Some will benefit from assistance and direction by a qualified Natural Health Professional.

I say “Natural” Health Professional as a conventional Dietitian may advise as per government dietary guidelines and standards.  Which in my personal opinion, are highly flawed.

Loved Ones & Friends with Type 2 Diabetes

If someone is reading this and they have a friend or loved one with type 2 diabetes, please forward this to them.  If you are able to,  sit them down and have a conversation about getting better.

Get the ball rolling in their mind sooner rather than later, as later may be too late.

I’m quite straight forward when I talk about Diabetes.  That’s because its a quality of life, robbing disease.  Unlike most medical doctors, I am not going to sugar coat the seriousness of it.

Don’t sit on the fence and say nothing because it may offend or be uncomfortable.  The complications of saying nothing may be far more unpleasant.

Commitment & determination are required to regain good health.   Type 2 diabetes can turn around in a remarkably short amount of time.

Lets Get REAL !
I watched something last night that I woke up still thinking about this morning.

The Right for Information, Free Speech and Freedom of Choice.

When authority say “ this is how it must be; why don’t we demand evidence to back this order up.

Professors and scientists etc. are saying this or that is true, so let’s check it out.. is it actually true?

Where is the disclosure and information to back it up and make it justifiable?

So question and research so called “facts” yourself. Broaden your perception of reality and critical think outside of the narrow minded narratives that they force feed us.

Now your blinkers are off; see what you come up with from your own “new” perceptions.

I’ll tell you from experience that once you start to do this; you can never unlearn what you find.

Your whole life of learned and programmed perception of what’s “true” and what’s actually the “truth” will begin to unfold.

This step out of the box will begin to open your mind and world in a way that then forces knowing.

We have been brainwashed by repetition; if that all you’ve ever heard, then that’s all your ever going to believe.

The range, width or corridor of allowed information has decreased exponentially with heavy censorship of information.

They only provide the “information” that fits into their agenda for humanity and society.

The more lies and deceit or as I like to call it “theatre” that you reveal the more “truth” you’ll crave.

We have all lost our voice and self sensor our personal beliefs and perceptions so we fit the mould created.

We have become fearful to speak our minds because of reticule from our peers and persecution from our “so called” authority.

How can we make it ok to have a voice and agree that it’s ok to have a different opinion.

To allow someone to say something that you don’t agree with and be ok with that.

Thinking in life has become polar or what I like to call “black and white” thinking.

There is no allowance for the grey area in between.

As authority in history has proven over and over again; they get it wrong, a lot.

How can they tell us; you must “do this” cause I am right.

Therefore you must be wrong; people are forced deeper into the illusion of awareness and ignorance about everything.

The system tells us; this or that is what we must believe.

We can set ourselves free by no longer believing what the “system” in all it’s forms tells us we must believe.

To break free of this unrelenting brainwashing; allowance of critical thinking; contribution of many personal perceptions; along with actual facts, evidence and justifications are necessary.

The censorship and manipulation of information must cease.

When this happens the narrow corridor of allowed thinking will vastly widens to a massive ocean of possibilities.

People will once again be able to stop self censoring everything they think and say and will finally be able to speak without fear.

Ask yourself this one question and then “critical think” your own response. “Where did I form the basis of everything that I believe to be true”??

Then create in your mind or write it down if need be; a flow chart or in other words the origin of your source of belief.

Is it from the tv or media, your doctor maybe your teacher!!! Follow the threads backward from your source.

You will connect the dots and alarm bells and lights will go on.

The problem seems so vast but the solution is actually quite simply.

We all want to be free; let’s just set ourselves free!

Once again we may be able to have conversation and opinion without being attacked and that will be ok.
