Hypoglycaemia, Insulin resistance and pre-diabetes
Are you developing Type 2 Diabetes?
Diabetes is one of the most common problems in the Uk and Ireland today. Currently, the number of people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK is estimated to be 3.5 million. ... This represents 6% of the UK population or 1 in every 16 people having diabetes (diagnosed and undiagnosed).
The Western Diet continues to promote blood sugar disorders and will for decades to come. Some have predicted that the diabetic explosion will bankrupt the national health system. Diabetes is on the rise and is the leading cause of blindness, amputations, kidney failure, and neuropathy. Diabetes is a growing problem in industrialized countries, primarily due to a lack of lifestyle education and physical activity, as well as the consumption of high-calorie, low-nutrient, processed foods.
Diabetes disrupts all aspects of human physiology. It increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, cognitive decline, and virtually every other disease. There are different categories of blood sugar handling issues: reactive hypoglycemia (low blood sugar, below 60) and hyperglycemia (high blood sugar, above 100). Contrary to popular belief diabetes is not a blood sugar issue, it is 100% of the time an insulin issue. High blood sugar is a symptom of insulin resistance or a lack of insulin production.
Diabetes is classified as either type 1 or type 2, and both result in high blood sugar. In type 1 diabetes a person has lost the ability to make insulin because their pancreas is being destroyed by either their own immune system or a virus. A type 2 diabetic eventually loses the ability to make insulin due to poor lifestyle choices, specifically diet.
“It is estimated that 20% of type 2 diabetics are misdiagnosed and are actually suffering from Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA). These diabetics are typically not overweight and live a healthy lifestyle, but still remain on insulin as a result of pancreatic destruction.”
Unfortunately most people have absolutely no idea just how serious and debilitating Diabetes can be. It is assumed that if you take your insulin medication correctly that you will be ok…nothing could be further from the truth! Diabetes can lead on to horrible debilitating and disabling, and sometimes fatal complications such as blindness, amputation of limbs due to gangrene, heart failure and heart attack, liver disease, kidney failure, Alzheimer’s and many more.
Conventional Medicine Has It All Wrong...
Statistics such as this point to two very important facts. First, it tells us that diabetes cannot be primarily caused by genetics, and secondly, it literally screams that something we're doing, consistently and en masse, is horribly wrong, and we need to address it.
So let’s have a look at how diabetes 2 develops…
Insulin is a hormone that is produced by the beta cells of the pancreas. These cells are scattered throughout the pancreas in small clusters known as the islets of Langerhans. The insulin produced is released into the blood stream and travels throughout the body. Insulin is an essential hormone that has many actions within the body. Most actions of insulin are directed at metabolism (control) of carbohydrates (sugars and starches), lipids (fats), and proteins. Insulin also regulates the functions of the body's cells, including their growth. Insulin is critical for the body's use of glucose as energy.
Before a person becomes a diabetic, they go through a stage called insulin resistance. This means that their cells require more insulin than usual to force that sugar into the cells. This problem is promoted by lifestyle factors such as physical inactivity, overeating, high sugar and high starch snacks and meals, and a lack of fiber. People in the insulin resistance stage usually complain of getting tired after meals, cravings for sweets, and trouble losing weight. When the insulin receptor becomes over-saturated (due to inflammation or insulin resistance) sugar cannot get into the cells. This excess sugar is converted into circulating fats called triglycerides. This process demands a lot of energy, resulting in fatigue after a meal. High triglycerides on a blood test are one of the first signs of insulin resistance and seen before diabetes is full blown.
Insulin resistance ALWAYS comes before diabetes is officially diagnosed. A person may be severely insulin resistant and still present with normal blood sugars. This high demand of insulin results in pancreatic burn-out, ultimately resulting in insulin dependence (medication). High circulating insulin does not only affect blood sugar; remember, insulin is at the root of virtually all chronic disease and therefore affects various other systems in the body. This is why diabetes is so much more than blood sugars.
So what goes wrong?
1. Initially there is an increase in blood sugar caused by the over consumption of sugar, carbohydrates and the lack of exercise which would have burned the excess glucose up.. Blood sugar will also be elevated if you are chronically stressed as the stress hormone Cortisol’s job is to mobilize sugar from storage into the blood stream to give you the energy to “fight or flight”
2. The cells become over stimulated with insulin and stop “listening” to the signal. (insulin resistance) This is in the same way as our nose gets fatigued when we are testing perfumes…we eventually cannot smell any perfume. As a result, higher levels of insulin are needed in order to have the correct effect. So the pancreas compromises by attempting to produce ever higher levels of insulin, swamping the cell wall still further causing more resistance.
3. Insulin then drives the blood sugar out of the blood, turning it into fat, and weight is gained, especially on the belly. This leads to low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia) They will also feel exhausted, especially shortly after eating a high carbohydrate or sugary meal.
4. With insulin resistance, the pancreas produces more and more insulin until the pancreas becomes exhausted and can no longer produce sufficient insulin for the body’s demands. The result is that blood sugar starts to rise.
5. The lack of usable glucose (hypoglycaemia) for fuel in the cells leads to increased cravings for sugar and carbohydrates, we eat more of these…and the downward cycle continues
6. Eventually the over worked Pancreas cells get warn out, and stop producing enough insulin, leading to a permanently high blood sugar (hyperglycaemia) which we call Type 2 diabetes.
7. A high blood sugar (hyperglycaemia) changes our blood Ph. and makes it a little too acidic. This leads to internal environments which causes pathology in our organs and tissues, but also will promote the growth of pathogenic yeasts…Candida. Yeasts depend on sugar. In order to keep the blood sugar levels up yeasts produce alcohol this has a blood sugar elevating effect. Once the blood sugar begins to fall, the body starts to crave sugar again and the cycle continues. In every case of diabetes or suspected insulin resistance I have tested, Candida has been present!
8. Prescribing insulin therapy actually tells the Pancreas it does not need to produce insulin anymore, so it stops. You are now dependent on an artificial drug which has serious side effects, to keep your blood sugar down, while you continue to eat sugar forming carbohydrates. Your body remains too acidic, and your organs degenerate.
9. Unfortunately all Type 2 diabetics treated this way are much more likely to die prematurely, having suffered years of complications such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s, blindness, gangrene, liver disease, and kidney failure.
Type 2 diabetes is a very serious and potentially lethal disease which is entirely preventable and curable using diet, lifestyle and other natural methods. Convention medicine does not address the root cause of diabetes…rather it attempts to “manage” the symptoms using medication. It is assumed in conventional medicine that high blood sugar is caused by a lack of insulin…wrong! It is caused by insulin resistance brought on by an over consumption of glucose forming foods, sedentary lifestyle and stress…all of which are preventable, and reversible
Insulin Resistance Symptoms (hypoglycaemia) may include:
• Sugar cravings (sweets, confectionary, fizzy drinks, fast food)
• Carbohydrate cravings (refined white bread, cereals, pasta, rice, potatoes)
• Fatigue, especially shortly after meals, or prolonged fasting
• Constant hunger
• Weight gain especially on the belly
• Disturbed sleep
• Foggy brain, difficulty concentrating and poor memory
• Feeling cold even in warm weather
• Low libido, lack of interest and depression
• Aggressiveness, short fuse and anger outbursts.

The Health Transformer Approach
In every case of Hypoglycaemia there is an underlying cause…something individual to each person. If at one time you didn’t have these symptoms and now you do, obviously something has changed within your body which has led to Hypoglycaemia being produced. The key is to unlock your root cause, and healing it. is Hypoglycaemia merely a symptom of the underlying cause. To heal Hypoglycaemia we need to address the root cause. In this centre we specialize in root cause diagnosis of any health condition using our state of the art Meta Health Scan.
The Meta Health Screen is carried out utilizing the amazing diagnostic ability of Clinical Kinesiology. It is reliable, accurate and reproducible. The scan will reveal the imbalances unique to your body, and how these are affecting you. The scan reveals such issues as endogenous bio-toxicity, nutrient imbalances or deficiencies, sub-clinical infections, allergies and food sensitivities. We also test for organ imbalances, hormone imbalance, and leaky gut. Any abnormality in these areas will easily be picked up during the Health Scan. We also examine your entire lifestyle, sleep quality and any emotional/psychological contributors to your condition.
