New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with How Long Before a Diabetic Goes Blind??
so I wanted to do this video based on a question that someone had how long does it take before a diabetic goes blind or loses the limb so let’s talk about that and I’m not saying that that’s gonna happen to you if you’re a diabetic but you should know this data okay normally it takes ten years of exposure to high blood sugar before you see some pretty serious complications to your nervous system to the eyes you start developing infections to the kidney to the even even the brain with loss of memory so some of the complications are numbness in the fingertips in the toes definitely infection you can get infections anywhere because it lowers your immune system your kidney starts leaking protein because there’s destruction in the kidney and then the nerves of the eyes get destroyed and the way it works is this so high levels of glucose combined with proteins in your tissue and they create this situation called glycated proteins which I’m not going to get into that in this video it just basically makes the the protein sticky it starts clogging up the vascular system especially to the nervous system so the nerves in your eye like the retina is fed through the vascular system so if the if the blood vessels to the nerve can’t flow blood anymore the nerves die and that’s what causes the diabetic to go blind it’s called diabetic retinopathy so there’s certain tissues in your body that are influenced with this high sugar more than others the eyes are at the top the list the nerves are affected the arteries the inside of the vascular system is affected that’s why it affects the heart so when your blood sugars are over 200 or your a1c is over eight that’s the type of exposure that I’m talking about normally a fasting blood glucose is between 70 and 90 a pre-diabetic is anywhere around 100 to 125 and then a diabetic is over 125 all right guys so here’s the real big problem you go to your doctor and the main focus is to keep your blood Sugar’s within normal range okay using medication now my question is if you’re taking the sugar out of the blood where is it going is it just evaporating is it disappearing no you’re basically shoving that sugar in to other places in the body you’re creating other problems so you’re switching one problem lower blood sugar for another problem so that sugar now is being crammed into other places it’s going into the liver it’s going around the organs as visceral fat it’s going inside the organs creating damage and these are some of the problems that are not addressed the other thing that it’s not addressed is the high levels of insulin that you have would type 2 diabetes okay type 1 is not enough insulin but type 2 is a serious problem with insulin resistance where you have high levels of insulin but the doctor never checks that they’re checking the blood glucose but here’s the other point I want to bring up high levels of insulin is just as damaging if not more than high levels of blood glucose this is why your body develops insulin resistance because it doesn’t want that much insulin and in your body so it actually creates a situation where the receptors don’t absorb it into the cell anymore as a protective mechanism and it’s gonna be really hard if not impossible to ever correct this problem unless you get the amount of carbohydrates out of your diet all right so now the question is if you already have gangrene or you went blind can you reverse it I have no idea I guess it’s possible but I have no idea it could be too far but I would definitely try and what would I do basically go on a healthy keto plan and guess what in a minute fasting I have a link down below to show you how to do it for those of you that are new to this so really there’s two things I want you to focus on one is getting the carbohydrates out of the diet okay that alone is very therapeutic so we want to lower the carbs that’s gonna lower the risk of all of this right here and number two we want to increase the nutrients in your food why because it’s the nutrients in the food that protect against the complications of high sugar that way you can kill two birds with one stone and lastly start eating foods that are nutrient dense to minimize the complications from the high sugar alright thanks for watching so if you want more knowledge on how to create a healthy body subscribe now and get daily notifications daily notifications that sounds weird well I’ll just remind you on a daily basis how about that

Here’s The Video Description From YouTube
Overview of Ketogenic Diet and Intermittent Fasting:

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about diabetic and blindness. Normally, it takes 10 years of exposure to high blood sugar before you notice very serious complications to your nervous system, eyes, kidney, and even the brain.
Some Complications of High Sugar:
• Numbness in Fingertips and Toes
• Kidney Leaks Protein
• Nerves of the Eyes get destroyed
High levels of glucose combined with proteins in the tissue and create this situation called Glycated Proteins. The nerves of the eye is fed to the vascular system, if the blood vessels to the nerve can’t flow blood anymore, the nerves die – which causes blindness on a diabetic person. It is a condition called diabetic retinopathy.
• Normal Fasting Blood Glucose: Between 70 – 90
• Prediabetic: 100 – 125
• Diabetic: Over a 125
Type 2 diabetes is a serious problem of insulin resistance where you have high levels of insulin and it is just more damaging than high levels of blood glucose.
Focus of these two things:
1. Getting the carbohydrate out of the diet.
2. Increase the nutrients in the food – start eating foods that are nutrient dense.
