Diabetes Persists Because of How it’s Defined
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Diabetes Persists Because of How it’s Defined?
so I believe diabetes persists because how its defined diabetes is a state or condition in which you’re unable to maintain your blood sugars okay you start developing high blood sugars now what’s interesting is between 1979 1997 normal fasting was below 140 milligrams per deciliter and the way they diagnosed diabetes was this if you have blood sugars greater than 140 milligrams per deciliter and two separate occasions you were a diabetic then in 1997 they changed how they diagnosed diabetes so anything greater than 126 milligrams per deciliter fasting glucose was considered diabetes so overnight millions of people were not now diabetic so if you’re a diabetic or a pre-diabetic or you want to avoid diabetes you must know what normal blood sugar is okay it’s between 70 and 85 and yes it can go up to 90 but right in this range is this this is where you want it right here between 70 and 85 milligrams per deciliter when you’re fasting there’s an interesting study I’m gonna put a link down below two thousand men that revealed that if your Sugar’s are over 85 it increases your risk of dying from a heart attack by 40 percent okay so we want to keep your blood Sugar’s right around 85 or less okay that’s the ideal scene right now worldwide we have 14% of the population on planet Earth diabetics okay and pre-diabetes is much much higher so sometimes people have this idea that oh yeah my blood sugars are below 140 so I’m okay I can just i’m not diabetic yet oh yeah I’m a pre-diabetic so I can just keep doing what I’m doing right so here’s what you need to know you have this pre-diabetes right where you’re going into diabetes okay your blood sugars may be over between 101 125 but here’s the thing if your blood sugars are between 85 and going up to a hundred this would be considered subclinical kind of like the it’s like gradually going into this pre-diabetes which will eventually going into actual diabetes so anything over 85 is not good diabetes is a condition of high blood sugar so for those of you that are new to my channel you must realize that to correct this you must get the sugar out of the diet and the carbohydrates but that’s not what is recommended according to the American Diabetes Association the expert on diabetes the authority on diabetes okay so I wanted to show you what they recommend it’s very fascinating alright avoid or cut back on regular soft drinks in juice now notice how they say they give you the option of cutting back I mean come on if you have pre-diabetes or even if you have blood sugars in your 90’s or you’re diabetic you shouldn’t be cutting back you should be completely and utterly avoiding sugar of all kinds okay choose a low calorie snack such as popcorn principle on the on the glycemic index popcorn is way too high it’s going to turn into sugar it’s gonna spike your blood sugars so they’re recommending a low-calorie what does a calorie had to do with it there’s no link between eating more calories in causing diabetes it’s the type of calories that you’re consuming it’s the sugar and the carbohydrates next one include at least one vegetable every day one vegetable they’re saying one serving which is like one cup no you need to do a lot more because you need the potassium to help fix the insulin resistance which is always involved in type 2 diabetes and many times in type 1 to next one be careful with salad toppings the calories can add up fast again they’re focusing on the calories what about the carbs choose fruit instead of cake pie cookies well that’s better but why even add fruit in there because fruit is high in sugar eat smaller servings of usual foods they’re not telling you to necessarily change your diet too much in this one just eat smaller servings of the junk that you’re eating when eating out share your main course with a friend or family member because of the calories right eating too much all right next one be mindful of how much fat you use in cooking why are you even talking about fat fat has the lowest response on blood Sugar’s it doesn’t trigger insulin okay and by the way for this for when you see in the media where they say that oh yeah high fat diet cause diabetes or prediabetes or insulin resistance those studies were based on mice which really did not consume a pure fat diet or a high-fat diet or a keto diet they were consuming high fat and high carbohydrates at the same time okay so you can pretty much ignore any of those studies all right avoid foods high in saturated fats like butter again no no you want to eat more butter if you have diabetes use healthy oils such as canola which by the way is GMO olive okay that’s good in vegetable oil like what like what kind of vegetable oil corn oil soy oil which is high in omega-6 fatty acids which will increase insulin resistance inflammation and it’s GMO okay start with one meat free meal each week by trying plant-based protein such as beans or lentils in place of meat wait a second meat doesn’t cause cancer especially if it’s grass-fed so again they’re not talking about the most important thing you need to avoid they keep switching to the the meat thing and the fat thing okay eat lean meats such as round or loin cuts or chicken without skin again no no we need the fat the more lean proteins you consume the higher you are on what’s called the insulin index if you don’t know about that I’m gonna put a link down below and insulin index is the non carbohydrate foods that affect insulin okay the glycemic index is all the carbohydrate foods that stimulate blood sugars but you also have the insulin index and lean protein okay spikes insulin more than fattier protein interesting we want to keep things low on the insulin scale next one cut back on processed meats that are high in fat and sodium again it’s it’s not the fat okay and it’s not the salt per se it is the carbohydrates okay eat fewer and smaller portion sizes of desserts and treats such as ice cream cake and cookies try saving these for special occasions well why why do you even allow people to consume it at all and also realize this if you consume just a small amount of a dessert you’re gonna be hungry for it one hour okay because of the carbohydrates will start increasing hunger because of the insulin spike so this is why diabetes is persisting okay so you want to know normal you want to keep your blood Sugar’s right here you need to keep you need to actually get a blood glucose testing kit and keep checking it and change your diet until you can get it within this range right here I put a link down below of the diet that I’m gonna recommend and if you’re a diabetic and you’re trying to get your blood Sugar’s down and you’ve had diabetes for a long long time you might not be able to get it down here but get as low as you can and make sure that you filed a plan I’m recommending so you can lessen the complications all right thanks for watching so I want to thank you for being

Dr. Berg discussed the reason as to why diabetes persists because of how it is defined. Diabetes is a state or condition where you are unable to maintain your blood sugars – where you start developing high blood sugars. In between 1979 to 1997 normal fasting was below 140mg/dl and the way they diagnosed diabetes is when you have blood sugars greater than 140mg/dl in two separate occasions. Then in 1997, they changed how they diagnose diabetes wherein anything greater than 126mg/dl fasting glucose was considered diabetes.
Normal blood sugar is between 70-85mg/dl when you are fasting. If your blood sugar is between 85 up to 100, this is considered subclinical where it is gradually going into prediabetes which will eventually go into actual diabetes.
