"Today, almost half of our population suffers from a degenerative disease that directly causes Heart Failure, Stroke, Type 2 Diabetes, Kidney Failure, Impotence, Obesity, Neuropathy, Retinopathy and a host of other similar symptoms. It is thought to be implicated, but not yet proven to be causal, in ADHD, ADD and some forms of Cancer. Its beginning symptoms are so mild that most who exhibit them do not realize that they are under a sentence of premature death and disability. It affects adults and children of all ages. At the turn of the last century this disease was so rare that many doctors could not correctly identify it. Today this disease forms such an important economic pillar in the medical community that every doctor in the country can easily recognize it at a glance."

  Reversing diabetes is not only possible, it is likely if you are willing to put forth the effort. This website is about reversing diabetes. It's about honest information; not about rampant industry promoting disinformation. It is about reversing a monstrous degenerative disease syndrome that shouldn't even exist. Diabetes is a disease syndrome that is so common that all of us either have the disease or we know someone that does have it. It is a primary, if not the primary, economic support for a medical community whose policy level management has absolutely no interest in curing it. This one disease syndrome alone accounted for over 40% of the deaths in the US from all causes in 1995 (Based on data published by American Demographics). This disease syndrome currently constitutes one of our most effective restraints on population growth in the developed nations. At the beginning of the twentieth century, this disease syndrome was so rare that it was considered a medical curiosity.
What's new

    Today a diabetes epidemic of incredible proportions rages through the country. It directly affects over half the population and incapacitates almost twenty percent of us. Over ten percent us are completely dependent upon synthetic medication and live under constant medical supervision because of a crippling drug dependence.

    There are few of us in America who are not affected directly or indirectly by diabetes. It has been known since the 1950's as Adult Onset Diabetes, Type II Diabetes, Insulin Resistant Diabetes, Hyperinsulinemia, or Insulin Resistant Hyperinsulinemia. It is known to the medical community by the symptoms that it produces. Some of these symptoms are: Atherosclerosis,Vascular disease, Diabetes type 2, Impotence, Kidney Failure, Heart disease, Liver Damage, Stroke, Obesity, Neuropathy, Retinopathy and Gangrene to name but just a few. We have separately discussed, each on its own page, the connection of each of these symptoms to the underlying endocrine disorder, Diabetes.

    This disease has so many life threatening symptoms that it influenced an  extensive reorganization of the medical disease classification system in 1949. This was the year the medical community defined many of these symptoms into the independent medical specialty diseases that has ravaged America for the last  forty years. This reorganization was promoted ostensibly to focus medical activity more  clearly on the underlying disease syndrome.  However, in actual fact, it has resulted in the widespread compartmentalization of the medical community into  numerous  competing

medical specialty groups according to the presentation of the differing 

"proprietary symptom sets" in different patients. 

This compartmentalization has obscured both the cause of this disease and the incredible scope of the epidemic that it produces. However, none of these newly formed "medical compartments"are trained to deal with the underlying cause of this disease. They are trained to deal only with their proprietary symptom set. The existence of these numerous new alias' for this disease became a real  problem for the scientists who had a genuine interest in understanding cause and effect. Their solution to this "problem of too many aliases" is illuminating. It can be found on our History page.

    This compartmentalization resulted in the establishment of powerful economic disincentives to the promotion of a cure for the disease as competing medical specialists simply vied for market share. As this competition became managed by medical "authorities", the American medical community rapidly became the wealthiest in the world. Clearly the medical reorganization of 1949, which rapidly developed into a major disaster for the patient that we see today, did indeed enormously benefit the medical community.

    All Doctors now are trained to deal only with their proprietary symptom set according to the prescribed protocols.  This is why and how the "cure" word disappeared from the medical vocabulary entirely. This also explains why it has become a federal crime to use the "cure" word in many circumstances where it would clearly apply; this in a country that loudly trumpets its belief in free speech. Try discussing the "cure" word with your doctor; you will find it to be an illuminating experience indeed.

    As all focus on actually curing anything became hopelessly lost, the orthodox medical community prospered as never before in all of its history. Today America has fallen well below the norm even for western developed nations in the quality and quantity of medical care it dispenses. Here in the US, doctor caused death is the third leading cause of death from all causes. However, the American medical community still retains its lead as the wealthiest and most prosperous medical community in the world.

    As the endocrine disease itself, that underlies and causes so many of these symptoms, develops the human body strives to cope with a severely damaged metabolism that, if not swiftly corrected, will  kill it. Details of this process is discussed on our webpage on hyperinsulinemia. Subtle cause and effect relationships between insulin and glucose are thoroughly  explored there.  Early warning indicators often include elevated cholesterol, elevated triglycerides, poor HDL/LDL ratio, high blood pressure, insulin resistance and weight problems. Some of these early warning indicators of disease are discussed on our fats page.

    This precursor Hyperinsulinemia is also thought to be significant in several forms of cancer and in the epidemic of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) raging through our schools today; although with these latter two diseases, the evidence while compelling is not yet completely conclusive. As we develop the evidence for these connections, we will post them on this site.

    Symptoms are valuable warning signs that something is wrong and that effective medical attention is required. When  symptoms are deliberately suppressed without curative action being undertaken to cure or reverse the disease, the disease will make more rapid progress. Now that this policy of criminal suppression of symptoms and careful avoidance of cure is being widely exposed, many are turning to the alternative medical community. For them it is now possible to look forward to something other than a rapid decline to invalid status and an early painful death.

    One would logically think that this disease would be cured by now since it has been increasingly well understood since about 1950. However, as we shall demonstrate on our history page, there are sound economic reasons why the disease can never, even in principle, be cured by existing medical institutions even though the cure is well understood in the research community. In addition, there are other social forcing functions that operate to prevent a cure from ever being made available. We examine some of these on our more information page. For the 50% or so of people who have the disease in its various stages, it is necessary to take responsibility for our own health and seek alternative medical treatment or remain sick.

    The good news is that although this disease accounts for almost half of the annual death toll in the  western nations from all causes, it is, in most cases, curable, permanently, quickly, economically, completely and often easily and by natural means. This means little or no reliance upon synthetic designer drugs and no ineffective medical treatments for symptoms, while causal agents remain untreated.

    The bad news is that the orthodox medical community cannot afford to cure this disease. It forms a financial backbone to the entire orthodox medical establishment. Should an effective cure be popularized, the resulting financial impact to the medical business, the drug business, several of our tax free foundations and a large part of our food processing industry would be severe. Many hospitals would close and many doctors, notably heart surgeons, would soon need to find another line of work. Many drug companies and a large part of the food industry would have to either shut down or greatly change their way of doing business. A discussion of these economic forcing functions is included in ourhistory page.

    This disease originated as an epidemic in the late 1920's and became the focus of considerable medical attention in the early 1930's. It grew exponentially through the 1940's and 1950's and is today accepted as a ubiquitous piece of America's medical wallpaper. From a per capita incidence of 0.0028% at the turn of the century, it has ballooned to 10% under doctors care; another 10% who should be under doctors care except they are "coping" and don't yet realize that they are diseased; and another 30% that exhibit clear symptoms which they ignore because the disease does not yet interfere with life. In 1995, forty percent of the death certificates in this country listed one or more symptoms of this disease. Although much has been learned about this disease, dating back to the 1930's, including how to easily cure it, it remains the underlying cause of an incredible annual death toll.

    A "death certificate shuffle" exists that acts to obscure the cause of death and to camouflage the incredible epidemic that rages among us. The shuffle works like this. Prior to the reorganization of the medical community in 1949 all of the diseases listed above were known to be but symptoms of what was then called Diabetes. After the reorganization these "symptoms" became diseases in their own right. Each group of related symptoms became the province of the specialist that presumably had expertise with that particular symptom set. For example, if the disease had progressed to the point where the patient experienced heart problems, he would be referred to a Heart Specialist. If he died while treated by the the Heart Specialist, his death certificate would say "Heart Failure." If the disease progressed to the point when Kidney function was destroyed before heart problems occurred, the death certificate filled out by the Kidney Specialist would say "Kidney failure."

    In this way we have defined a "top ten" category of killer diseases. Many of these killer diseases are but differing symptoms of a single underlying disease with numerous confusing aliases. This underlying disease is now known to be caused by specific poisons and inadequacies in our food supply. For those who would like to see more about the origins of this disease we have included a briefhistory. As we show on our history page, this disease began to become epidemic shortly after poisonous food was introduced.

    This underlying disease is a severe unbalance of the endocrine system that destroys our ability to metabolize food. The unbalance results in elevated levels of certain control hormones as the body strives to correct a systemic problem that it cannot correct with the known toxins in the food supply and without the missing essential elements of nutrition.

    Although this is a relatively large site with a considerable amount of useful information, we recognize that many who are either affected by this disease or who have the responsibility to treat others may want to study additional information in book form. For this reason we have written a book for the layman, but which includes an extensive list of scientific cites and references. This book includes a specific, non-drug protocol that can reverse the disease fairly quickly and easily for the large majority that suffer from it. This report includes a glycemic index with complete instructions for use and a bibliography and a glossary. This book, Insulin: Our Silent Killer, contains far more information than we can conveniently present on a web page. Click here to find ordering instructions for purchasing it.

    The results compiled on this web site and even more in our book are the result of a four year study undertaken by this writer who, having the disease, was faced with the need to find a cure for it because his doctor couldn't or wouldn't cure it. This book presents, not only an effective cure protocol for the disease, but helpful information on how to naturally manage its damaging symptoms during the cure process. It also includes the information needed to reverse much, but unfortunately not all, of the collateral damage that this disease causes when it is encouraged to run rampant with ineffective orthodox medical treatment. 

Comment and review

    This site contains a great deal of information about a widespread disease whose very existence has been largely suppressed. Much of this site is not very politically correct, although what that has to do with real science escapes us. All of this information has been taken from credible published authors and published scientific reports, many of which never come to the light of public scrutiny. We have made every effort to be accurate and objective in our investigation and reporting because we know that only the truth about this disease can be helpful to those who are affected by it. However, we're human and the sources from whom we've garnered this data are human and thus mistakes can be made.

Diabetes Type I
  Type I diabetes is believed to be caused by the damage or destruction of the pancreatic beta cells by an autoimmune reaction. In this, reaction the bodies own immune system destroys it's own beta cells. This mistaken bodily response is precipitated by the presence, in the bloodstream, of antigens that the body perceives as a threat and which are camouflaged to look like beta cells. This camouflage consists of a coat of proteins on the antigen identical to the coat on the beta cells. So, when the body mobilizes to attack the foreign invaders, it's antibodies are programmed to identify them by this coat. When these antibodies later encounter a beta cell, it regards it as an antigen and destroys it.

  Because of the way that this disease works, it is not  only important to restore pancreatic beta cells, but to also deal with any antibody-antigen complexes that may still be around. This is to prevent any repeat of the antibody-antigen conflict  that precipitated the disease in the first place.

  Several causative agents, as antigens, have been implicated in this damage. Some of the prominent ones are various virus' such as mumps, measles and coxcackie virus. A protein commonly found in cows milk, as the result of numerous studies, has been shown to be causative for type I diabetes. More recently, childhood vaccinations have been seriously  implicated as a causative agent in type I diabetes.

 Both the Internet and many university libraries have extensive documentation on these causal phenomena. Sadly, much of this information is not available any longer to a public that has lost interest in researching things for themselves and of thinking independently. As a consequence, a disease that should be a very minor epidemiological footnote in history, continues to survive as a major profit center for the diabetes industry.

 Dealing with any form of diabetes involves, as we have pointed out previously, three different things that need to be done. They are:

                            1.   Reverse the disease.
                            2.   Manually  control blood sugar during this process.
                            3.   Repair collateral damage to kidney's,eyes, arteries, etc.


    My program, outlined on this site and thoroughly discussed in  my book, Insulin: Our Silent Killer,

provides information to accomplish all three goals for the type II diabetic. This information was painstakenly gleaned from research literature spanning almost a century. For the type I diabetic, my program can accomplish the second and third items on the list but not the first one. My type II diabetes program, if applied to the type I, will result in better glycemic control, fewer of the wild glucose and  insulin swings that characterize the use of injectable insulin and, usually, the use of lesser amounts of insulin; but, it will not reverse this disease.

    In  this article I summarize what I have discovered about this disease

   My comment, in my article Our Deadly Diabetes Deception, that there is "now available a cure" for some type I diabetes was based upon the work done in India and around the world and regularly published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology starting in 1990 and continuing since. In this work, regeneration of the pancreatic beta cells was clearly demonstrated in both humans and lab rats by significant reductions in the need for injectable insulin and by better glycemic control. A large number of herbs have been investigated in these studies. Many of them  have been shown to have significant hypoglycemic effects and a number of them appear to improve pancreatic function by restoring and regenerating pancreatic beta cells.

    The published results of this work can be studied in the local university library in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology by anyone with sufficient interest to do so;  just remember to bring a good medical dictionary to help with the big words.

    A search of the Pub med and Medline websites with key words such as herbs, blood sugar, hypoglycemic, type I beta cell regeneration, etc...will quickly turn  up the abstracts of a number of papers relevant to the herbal regeneration of pancreatic beta cells. In the US these papers can then be obtained through the loansom doc program through the local university library. The website is:


    A patent search will disclose a number of patents filed as a direct result of this herbal research that make some strong claims about the regeneration of pancreatic beta cells.  For example, patent number: 5,886,029 entitled "Method and composition for treatment of diabetes" makes this  claim. This particular patent states in part:

                    "The unique combination of components in the medicinal composition
                    leads to a regeneration of the pancreas cells  which then start producing
                    insulin on their own. Since the composition restores normal pancreatic
                    function, treatment can be discontinued after between four and twelve

    This  patent, along with many other similar ones, can be freely researched in their full text version at the US government patent office website:

    Sadly, this excellent work has not matured into a medicine,  available at the retail consumer level, that will reverse type I diabetes. I strongly suspect that the reason is because there is no financial incentive to market a cure for a disease that provides such a lucrative and dependable income from the insulin side of its business.

    Also, this just in, March 2005.  Dr Denise Faustman, together with a foundation supported and funded by Lee Iacocca, whose wife died from the complications of diabetes, has just announced a major break through in dealing with type I diabetes. You can find details at:


    Since the medical community reorganization in 1949, the cure word has been banished from everywhere except fund raising efforts. If you doubt this statement, mention the cure word to your doctor and see how quickly he reacts. It is now politically correct to treat but not to cure disease; any disease. I encountered this same irrational mindset when I contracted a severe case of type II diabetes some years ago. Had I accepted my doctor’s prognosis as inevitable, I would have died from the disease long before now. As it is, by the exercise of my own faculties and contrary to my doctors advice, I completely reversed my own type II diabetes and, at age 75, am in perfect  health.

    What's needed is for someone, unconnected to the diabetes industry and not driven by the profit motive, to perform a thorough literature search on the science and herbal treatment of type I diabetes; and, to then take the information public as I did with the type II diabetes issue. There is a strong probability that herbal remedies could be discovered in  this  way that are capable of fully restoring  pancreatic beta cell function and thus curing type I diabetes.

    To expect the diabetes industry, or any part of it, to financially self destruct by actually eradicating the disease that provides their sole source of income just doesn’t make any business sense at all; they will obviously never do this. If an effective cure is discovered, and I believe it already has been discovered and concealed, it will remain suppressed by the diabetes industry as a matter of business necessity.

    I hope that this information proves helpful in tracking down the information needed to cure this  burdensome disease.

Diabetes type 2

Diabetes is classically diagnosed as a failure of the body to properly metabolize Carbohydrates. Its defining symptom is a high blood Glucose level. Type 1 Diabetes is caused by "insufficient Insulin" production by the pancreas. Type 2 Diabetes, which constitutes about 95% of all the cases, is caused by normal, or sometimes excessive production of "ineffective Insulin". In both types, the blood Glucose level remains elevated. Neither insufficient Insulin nor ineffective Insulin can limit post prandial (after eating) blood sugar to the normal range; in established cases of Type 2 Diabetes, these elevated blood sugar levels often result in chronically elevated Insulin levels.

The ineffective insulin is no different from normal insulin. Its ineffectiveness lies in the failure of our cell population to respond to it not in any biochemical change in the insulin itself. Therefore it is appropriate to note that this disease is a disease that affects almost every cell in our body. The biochemistry of our cellular metabolism is changed from the normal.

The classification of Diabetes as a failure to metabolize Carbohydrates is a traditional classification that originated in the early 19th century when little was known about metabolic diseases or about metabolic processes. Today, with our increased knowledge of metabolic processes, it would appear quite appropriate to define Type 2 Diabetes more fundamentally as a failure of the body to properly metabolize Fats and Oils as well as carbohydrates. This failure results in a loss of effectiveness of Insulin and in the consequent failure to metabolize Carbohydrates. Unfortunately, much medical insight into this matter, except at the research level, remains hampered by its 19th century legacy.

The Type II diabetes and the Hyperinsulinemic symptoms that occur are system wide symptoms of a basic cellular failure to properly metabolize Glucose. Each cell of our body, for reasons which are becoming clearer, find themselves unable to transport Glucose from the blood stream to their interior. The glucose then either remains in the blood stream or is stored as body fat, or otherwise disposed of in the Urine.

Until quite recently it was believed that Insulin molecules bound themselves to Glucose molecules to form a sort of "lock and key" configuration at the cellular Membrane interface. These two molecules together sort of fit the Membrane Receptor and allowed the Glucose to be transported into the cell where it was used for fuel. Many doctors practicing today were taught this concept in medical school. While this theory is descriptive and attractive in its simplicity and while it may be adequate for some purposes, the true picture that is emerging is much more complex and much more revealing.

It appears that when Insulin binds to a Membrane receptor it initiates a complex cascade of biochemical reactions inside the cell. One of these reactions causes Glucose transporters known as GLUT4 molecules to leave their parking area inside the cell and travel to the inside surface of the cell Plasma Membrane. When in the Membrane, they migrate through the Membrane to special areas of the Membrane called Caveolae areas. There, by another series of biochemical reactions they identify and "hook up" with Glucose molecules and transport them into the interior of the cell by a process called endocytosis. Within the cells interior, this Glucose is burned for fuel by the Mitochondria to produce ATP and waste products. The ATP provides energy to power the cellular activity and the waste products are excreted by other metabolic cellular pathways.

These GLUT4 transporters are responsible for transporting glucose from the blood stream into all of our peripheral cells. Of the seven glucose transporters so far identified they have, by far, the greatest ability to quickly reduce our blood borne post prandial glucose. GLUT1 and GLUT3 are glucose transporters that facilitate the transport of glucose from the blood stream across the blood brain barrier to the neuronal cells of the brain. Remember that the brain uses glucose as a primary fuel almost exclusively. GLUT2 facilitates transport of glucose from our liver and intestines into the blood stream; it also regulates insulin release from the pancreatic beta cells. GLUT5 functions in the absorption of Glucose from the intestine into the blood stream and also in the reabsorption of glucose from the kidneys back into systemic circulation when we are in a glucose sparing mode of operation.. Two additional glucose transporters have been identified but not yet characterized as to their function; they are, as you might expect, GLUT6 and GLUT7.

Each of the glucose transporters operate most efficiently at different levels of blood glucose. GLUT4 swiftly reduces very high levels of glucose. GLUT3 operates efficiently at low blood glucose concentrations in order to keep the brain supplied when blood sugar is low. GLUT2, in its regulatory function, has an activity that is linear across a wide range of blood glucose concentrations. It can thus provide an insulin demand signal to the pancreatic beta cells that is proportional to the blood borne concentration of glucose. Since our BSCS functions as a type 0 control system we would expect to find a proportional sensor somewhere and this seems to be it.

Type 2 Diabetics, perhaps because of the high average Insulin levels, typically have only about 1200 Insulin Receptors, or less, per cell Membrane. This is about half of the norm. This appears to be one of the issues involved in the high average Insulin levels often encountered in Type 2 Diabetes.

Many of the molecules involved in these Glucose and Insulin mediated pathways are Lipids, that is they are Fatty Acids. A healthy Plasma Membrane, now known as an active player in the Glucose scenario, contains a complement of Cis type w=3 unsaturated fatty acids. This makes the Membrane relatively fluid and slippery. When these Cis fatty acids are chronically unavailable because of our diet, Trans fatty acids and short and medium chain Saturated Fatty Acids are substituted in the cell Membrane. These substitutions make the cellular Membrane stiffer and more sticky and inhibit the Glucose transport mechanism. The mobility of the GLUT4 transporters is diminished, the interior biochemistry of the cell is changed and the number of Insulin Receptors on the cell surface is reduced. Although there remains much work to be done to fully elucidate all of the steps in these pathways, this clearly marks the beginning of a biochemical explanation for the known epidemiological relationship between fat metabolism and the onset of Type 2 Diabetes.

There exists another phenomena peculiar to Type II Diabetes that operates to keep the blood sugar elevated. It works like this. Remember that normally the liver stores glucose as glycogen and inhibits the release of glucose when glucose stimulated insulin levels are high. You may recall from our earlier discussion that this mechanism keeps our short term, rapidly accessed supply of glucose replenished. In Type II Diabetes the elevated glucose levels do not seem to inhibit glucogenesis in the liver as it does in normal systems. Although all of the evidence is not yet clear, this can quite likely be due to the same impaired cellular glucose transport at the liver similar to that observed in the peripheral cells. Also when the system is stressed, the Catacholamines that are released stimulate additional glucose release by the liver. Sometimes this effect can be noted by observing a fasting blood sugar in the morning that is higher than the blood sugar of the previous evening, several hours after the last meal of the day. Such unexpected over night elevation of the blood sugar cannot be explained by a meal in the middle of the night when there wasn't one.

It is fashionable for pop medical science to blame "trans fats" for the failure of the plasma cell membranes in our 67 or so trillion cells to facilitate the operation of our GLUT 4 transporters to haul glucose into the cell. To the extent that these trans fats are responsible for stiffening the cell membrane and reducing its fluidity when they are used in place of the Cis type w=3 unsaturated acids, trans fats are indeed a culprit. However, if we didn't eat transfats and ate only "good" short and medium chain saturated fats, we would still get Type II diabetes. The body limits its use of either these transfats or saturated fats in cell membrane repair only when adequate Cis w=3 unsaturated fatty acids are present in the diet. It is only when these Cis w=3 fats are chronically unavailable to the body that Trans fats and Saturated fats appear in excess in the membranes. These important membranes then stiffen and become sticky, and systemic disease, including Type 2 Diabetes, manifests.

All of these Cis w=3 unsaturated fatty acids have been completely removed from our food chain and replaced by their trans isomer counterparts. This was done because Cis w=3 oils require refrigeration and typically have a fairly short shelf life. This makes them incompatible with the economics of modern food distribution. Our convenient grocery store availablity of these Cis type essential fatty acids ended in 1950 when Archer Daniels Midland, the last supplier, decided to stop producing this valuable oil and concentrate on processing flour. Our diet now consists only of saturated fats, transfats and some of the hardier Cis w=6 and w=9 fats. All of the delicate w=3 Cis fats, uniquely needed by our cell membranes, because of their poor room temperature shelf life, have completely disappeared from the local grocery store.

Two of the w=3 Cis fats are called essential because without them our bodies develop chronic disease and because our bodies cannot synthesize them from any other food that we eat. These two are: Linoleic acid (LA) and Alpha Linolenic acid (LNA). A third fatty acid, Arachidonic Acid (AA), was once thought to be essential. However, recently it has been discovered that a healthy body can convert LA into AA, so it is no longer believed to be essential for healthy people.

A major reason for discontinuing the production of the Cis w=3 oils is that they rapidly become rancid when placed in a transparent bottle on a room temperature grocery store shelf. The resulting manufacturing and distribution problems that would ensue would seriously impact the bottom line of profitability. The trans isomer counterpart to the essential fatty acid we need and do not get has a very long shelf life. Trans fatty acids present few manufacturing or distribution problems for the oil makers; this substitution of the trans isomers for the needed Cis type oils causes Hyperinsulinemia and results in the many other symptoms of the disease that are curently killing us. This outrageous fraud is often accompanied by advertising that informs us of the "monounsaturated" or "polyunsaturated" value of these worthless and damaging trans oils. The law does not require the oil sellers to state that their oil is a trans isomer and not the Cis isomer that we desperately need; and, this is their reason for not doing so.

This story started to come to light in 1950 when serum Insulin assays became available to the medical community. It has been actively suppressed since then; the careers of many ethical scientists have been damaged by trying to bring this story to the light of day. Many others have been cowed into politically correct silence. Now the evidence is so overwhelming and the number of people becoming knowlegable about the matter is so large that it cannot remain hidden in industry funded, politically correct ivory towers any longer. For additional information on the effect of these fats and oils, including how to protect ourselves from the damage they are believed to cause, see our page on Hyperinsulinemia .

Kidney failure

Technically termed Renal Nephropathy, Kidney Disease is an inevitable result of the chronically uncontrolled blood Glucose and chronic high Insulin levels that are associated with Hyperinsulinemia and Type 2 diabetes.

The Kidneys are system filters whose purpose is to filter out the water soluble waste materials in the blood, to mix them with an appropriate amount of water to form urine and to send this mixture to the bladder for excretion from the body. They do this in a way that conserves blood components that may be needed for future use. Thus the Kidneys return non-waste blood components to the blood stream to maintain proper blood Homeostasis, they control the blood PH to within very tight limits (7.35-7.45), they control the water Electrolyte blood balance and they, through the action of Renin-Angiotensis mechanism and the excretion of water from the system, play an important role in the operation of the Blood Pressure Control System (BPCS). This BPCS is another of the bodies' control systems similar to, but not directly related to, the Blood Sugar Control System.

In structure the Kidneys consist largely of many fine capillaries through which the blood flows during the filtration process. A number of complex osmotic reactions occur during the passage of blood through the Kidneys that are driven by the Electrolyte balance in the blood and by the osmatic pressure differentials caused by the Sodium Potassium balance in the blood stream.

When Renal Failure occurs, Dialysis is required or death will ensue in short order, typically 50% within six months and most by one year. Dialysis is a procedure whereby the blood is externally filtered through a machine especially designed for the purpose. When this procedure is done periodically the blood stream is filtered of impurities. By the use of this method life may be prolonged after Kidney Failure is experienced.

There are three major damage mechanisms by which progressive deterioration of the Kidneys occurs.

The first is by direct damage of the fine capilaries by the high Glucose levels associated with Diabetes and with Hyperinsulinemia. The glucose directly causes an increased permeability and the capillaries leak and fail to perform their filtering action. Severe and extensive damage to these fine capilliaries is thought to be irreversable at this time.

A leading cause of Renal Failure for the Hyperinsulinemic patient is Renal Thrombosis (blood clotting in the Renal vein).

The high levels of Insulin in the blood directly cause Atherosclerosis of the Renal artery. This mechanism is discussed on our Atherosclerosis page.

A related complicating factor is caused by the high levels of dietary protein to which many sufferers from Diabetes and Hyperinsulinemia resort. This protein, when it is metabolized, results in high levels of Ammonia . Chronic high levels of Ammonia, mostly changed into Urea by the Liver, nevertheless directly damage the fine capillaries. Also there are known other negative effects in the tubular basement membranes of the Kidneys that are directly caused by certain proteins.

Unless normal blood Glucose levels can be maintained without resorting to a high protein diet, the progress of Hyperinsulinemia and its related Type II diabetes invariably leads to Renal (Kidney) failure and the need for Dialysis. In our special report Insulin: Our Silent Killer we thoroughly discuss the dietary factors that are especially important to the diabetic. This High Protein-Kidney Damage relationship is potentially one of the most important to the recovering diabetic. During the recovery process, which may last for several months, it isn't smart to wreck the Kidneys by resorting to a high protein diet. This is uniquely important because, while much of the damage done by Type II diabetes and Hyperinsulinemia is reversable, all of it is not. In particular when the basement membranes of the Kidneys are destroyed, the destruction is currently thought to be irreversable.

High blood pressure, Hypertension, which is often found in progressive Renal Failure, is also one of the characteristics of Hyperinsulinemia. If there is any suspicion that Hyperinsulinemia or Type II diabetes, may exist, one should have a blood test done and obtain medical advice based on the BUN and Creatine levels found in the test with regard to possible Kidney damage.

On the next page where we discuss Hyperinsulinemia, we discuss ways in which this disease can be readily prevented from progressing. We include below a starter list of references for those who want to look at the original data. Much more information about Hyperinsulinemia is available in our Special Report than can conveniently be put on this web site.

Liver damage

The Liver is a huge chemical factory that manufactures basic biochemicals that are used by our entire body. It is central to our digestion of fats, to metabolism, to detoxification and to many other vital processes. When it fails, death will typically occur within 24 hours.

Detoxification, one of the many vital functions of the Liver, is performed through multiple chemical pathways. These pathways chemically alter toxic materials into harmless substances that are water or fat soluble. The water soluble end products are sent to the Kidneys for excretion in the Urine. The fat soluble end products are sent to the small intestine for subsequent excretion.

Virtually all synthetic drugs, as well as many natural drugs and compounds, are regarded by the Liver as toxic. For this reason many, if not most, prescriptions for synthetic drugs call for up to 50 times the dosage needed to combat the symptom treated. The assumption is made that sufficient drug must be introduced into the system to overcome the detoxification activity of the Liver.

This is one of the reasons why most, if not all, modern synthetic drugs have one or more undesired side effects. Many of the Hypoglycemic agents (agents that lower blood sugar) used to treat Type II diabetes and Hyperinsulinemia are known to cause liver damage. There are so many of these agents, with more appearing every day, in an exploding drug marketplace, that it isn't possible to list and discuss them all on this web site. Some of the toxic effects of these drugs affect other organs of the body in addition to the liver. An increasingly common side effect is that they kill. In our Special Report we thoroughly discuss the common side effects of all of the current classifications of Hypoglycemic agents.

When you contemplate taking a prescripton drug it is very important to understand the consequences of these drugs. You can visit the library to look up the drug in the "Physicians Desk Reference" (PDR). Or, alternatively, if you have our Special Report you can quickly look up the risk factors involved with the medication you're taking in the appropriate section of the report. This will eneble you to determine the nature of its side effects. If you are already experiencing any of these side effects it is time to have a serious talk with your physician. We cite here side effects for a few of the commonly prescribed agents used to control blood sugar in Hyperinsulinemic and Type II diabetic patients so that you can get the idea.

The Sulfonylureas are a class of drugs that include Orinase, Tolinase, Diabinase and others. These drugs have been implicated in greatly increased deaths from Heart Disease and Hepatitis, specifically Granulomatus Hepatitis.

Glyburide, another Hypoglycemic agent has been reportedly associated with Cholestatic Jaundice, with Hepatitis and with Hypersensitivity Angitis; all of these are very serious Liver diseases.

Rezulin is an oral Hypoglycemic agent that has come to be associated with Liver Cancer. It was believed to be a potent Cancer producer by the original FDA investigating officer who refused to approve it for American use. He was administratively removed from the case and replaced by another who quickly approved it. After approval it killed an estimated 100 people before recently being finally removed from the American market by our FDA. It had previously failed to gain regulatory approval with England's equivalent of our FDA. This matter is currently headed for the courts.

In addition to drug induced Liver damage, evidence is slowly accumulating to suggest that the Hyperinsulinemia itself may cause Liver damage. High levels of Triglycerides in the blood stream are a known result produced by the development of Hyperinsulinemia and Hyperglycemia (Type II diabetes). When these Triglyceride levels become chronic, they induce a condition known as Hepatic Steatosis (fatty liver). In this condition, the Liver becomes infiltrated with Triglycerides and much of its normal function is impaired.

In our section on Hyperinsulinemia we present effective ways to deal with this disease. Below we include a starter list of references for those who wish to do further investigation. In addition to the contents of this web page, which have been designed to include the essential information needed, more information is available in our Special Report on this disease.

Hyperinsulinemia is an endocrine disorder characterized by a failure of our Blood Sugar Control System (BSCS) to work properly. It manifests when insulin progressively loses its effectiveness in sweeping the blood glucose from the blood stream into the sixty seven trillion or so cells that constitute our bodies. The insulin level in the bloodstream then rapidly rises to damaging levels and, together with the resulting elevated glucose levels, account for much of the damage to our arteries and vascular system. When insulin loses its effectiveness this loss is not due to any change in the insulin produced by the pancreas. It is due to a change in the cellular metabolism of almost every cell in our body. Although our insulin has not changed, our cell metabolism has changed. Our cells no longer respond to blood borne insulin signaling as they should.

Our BSCS works like any negative feedback system to maintain our blood sugar at a predetermined setpoint. This setpoint is below the threshold where excess glucose can cause vascular damage. And the insulin required to do this is normally below the threshold where it will cause arterial or vascular damage. When the BSCS is working right, it automatically, without our conscious knowledge, maintains correct blood sugar with a minimum amount of insulin whether we have just eaten a meal or been fasting and exercising for a week.

When our system starts to exhibit hyperinsulinemia, our pancreatic beta cells simply increase insulin production and for a time this maintains our ability to swiftly lower post prandial (after eating) blood glucose. For a time this maintains normal glucose levels, albeit by the secretion of these abnormally high insulin levels.

At some point during the progressive loss of effectiveness of insulin, our pancreatic beta cells may no longer produce enough insulin to manage normal post prandial and fasting glucose. This may occur because our pancreas becomes exhausted by trying to maintain abnormally high insulin levels needed. It may occur because the progressive failure of our cellular metabolism has created a chronic demand for insulin beyond what even a healthy pancreas can supply. In either event, when this happens Type 2 diabetes is diagnosed. Of course, hyperinsulinemia has been around for some while, often for a long while, by the time this diagnosis is made.

As these elevated levels of insulin and glucose in the body continue they set in motion two damaging sequences of events that rapidly lead to atherosclerosis and heart failure.

The insulin sequence is:

Elevated insulin---increased delta desaturase enzymes---increased conversion of omega 6 fatty acids to arachidonic acid--increased prostaglandin 2's--increased production of cytokines--increased inflammatory

response throughout the entire body.

The glucose sequence is:

Elevated serum glucose--increased intestinal candida--migration of candida to upper intestine--root formation of candida in duodenum--migration of candida spores throughout the bloodstream--candida infection throughout the body.

A naturopathic doctor, with access to a dark field microscope, can readily show you the candida spores that appear in large numbers in the bloodstream. This is an  inexpensive test and one well worth the few  dollars that  it costs.

This candida source of infection is not the only source of infection. Because of the increased availability of cytokines, he body becomes subject to infection from many other sources. This is one reason that diabetics experience poor wound healing. One of the most important sites of infection is the coronary artery.  This is located in the high pressure, sugar rich side of the blood supply. When the infection that occurs here is noticed by the immune system, the body attempts to patch the damage with cholesterol, Lp(a), free calcium and a few other things. This patching process is known as atherosclerosis. As the patching process continues, the interior of the artery becomes narrowed. As the artery narrows, we become more susceptible to ischemic events.  These are events where a clot forms in the artery and blocks the artery at a narrow atherosclerotic point. When this occurs in the coronary artery, the blood supply to the heart muscles is stopped and a heart attack ensues. This whole process is exacerbated by  the fact that without adequate omega 3 fatty acids in the diet the blood thickens and the platelets become sticky and prone to form clots. Our book, Insulin: Our Silent Killer discusses this phenomenon more  fully.

Notice the role of omega 6 fatty acids in making the entire body subject to the inflammatory response mediated by the prostaglandin 2 family of prostaglandins.  The body would, if it could, manufacture the antagonists to these prostaglandin 2's to prevent setting up this whole body inflammatory response. These antagonists are the prostaglandin 1's and 3's. Our bodies, typically, cannot manufacture these anti-inflammatory  prostaglandins because they lack the basic raw materials. These are the omega 3 fatty acids. We typically need and do not have, any omega 3 fatty acids in our diet at all. We have an over abundance of omega 6's and transfats in our diet. The separate damaging role of transfat substitution for omega 3 fatty acids has been discussed elsewhere in connection with the glucose transport system.

Epidemiologically, the fat and oils connection to Hyperinsulinemia, and thus to all of the diseases mentioned on our home page, clearly parallels the rise of the Hydrogenated and Refined fats and oils business. Although not well known outside of research circles, (for reasons that are probably economic), the connection between artificial fats and oils and the Hyperinsulinemic destruction of vital functions is now well established. Recent advances in the study of appropriate cellular biochemical pathways have been most revealing.

To stop and reverse the progress of Hyperinsulinemia the following is mandatory:

Do not eat any hydrogenated oils or any prepared foods that contain them as ingredients.

Add to the daily diet a therapeutic amount of beneficial oils containing omega 3 fatty acids.

This one thing will, in conjunction with the rest of the program, greatly delay the onset of and in many cases prevent entirely these terrible diseases. This one simple dietary change is a part of a complete program thoroughly discussed in our special report, Insulin: Our Silent Killer. By making this change we are forcing the body to begin the healing process on every cell in the body. This is a drastic step and cannot be maintained for ever. When the body begins to heal, it then becomes necessary to restore the other fats and oils that it needs to accelerate the healing process. The timing on  this is critical to the  success of the program. To maintain such a drastic change in the fats and oils balance for the body forces every cell in the body to adjust. This is a therapeutic protocol and is not a protocol that can be maintained for ever. To use it safely, requires care and knowledge of what is going on so as to be able to decide when to move on to the next step. At some point it is  necessary, in order to continue the healing process, to add back into the diet the other fats and oils that we need. In our book, Insulin: Our Silent Killer we are able to expand, explain and elaborate upon this protocol and present useful tricks and techniques to assure its speedy success in the vast majority of cases.

However, there is another problem that must be faced when curing this disease. It is this: during that part of the cure cycle when elevated blood glucose and insulin levels are manifest, the body is being slowly destroyed by these agents. This period may last for many weeks or months dependent upon how long the disease has been allowed to run rampant before a cure is attempted. During this period of time it is of the utmost importance to use all measures available to keep blood sugar and insulin levels as low as possible so as to minimize the damage.  This is the focus of the drug treatment available from the medical community.  While this is an  important  step in minimizing vascular damage to the body during  the cure process, it itself is not a cure for anything. In our book we fully discuss a number of proven effective ways to minimize blood sugar and insulin levels without drugs and their damaging side effects.

Our program will, relatively quickly, reverse hyperinsulinemia, type 2 diabetes and some of the other symptomatic diseases caused by hyperinsulinemia. In my case, my type 2 diabetes was reversed in 103 days from start to finish. At the start my fasting blood sugar was 368  mg/dl. At the end of the program it varied between 75 and 85 mg/dl.

This program will remove much stress from the components of the BSCS; over a period of time they too will be restored to youthful function. This includes the liver, pancreas, adrenals, thyroid and the interior transport agents in every cell of our body.

This program will slow and in some cases reverse vascular damage and gangrenous damage to our extremities. There are faster ways to reverse this sort of damage which is thoroughly discussed in our Special Report.

This program will, over time, revcrse much of the neuropathic damage to the nervous system.

It will reverse atherosclerosis too, but may take years to do it. But here too, there are faster and better ways to reverse atherosclerosis which we cover in our Special Report.

Although this brief discussion of hyperinsulinemia has been designed to provide the basic information needed to understand the condition, a great deal more information is available, in our Special Report. This is for those who prefer to have a reference book handy, that is more focused on reversing the condition. This is because more detail, beyond this elementary explanation, is needed to assure a safe, effective and comfortable reversal of this disease than is practical to include in a web page.
