Defeat Diabetes

Posted Jul 29 2010 7:59am

Ken Hampshirewill be here to talk about what the 5 stages of diabetes are and what they mean, Diabetes is broken down into 5 stages. As insulin resistance begins to manifest somewhere in our late teens or early 20's, the body compensates by producing more and more insulin to keep blood glucose levels within the normal ranges. You enter into stage one (insulin resistance) without even knowing it. Stage two is when you have both insulin resistance and elevated insulin (as the body produces more insulin to keep blood glucose in check). Again, most people have no idea they are in stage two diabetes. Stage two is where severe bodily damage begins. This is also where increased levels of insulin, an anabolic hormone, promotes weight gain and an increase in blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels. The insulin Sequence: Elevated insulin leads to increased delta desaturase enzyme production. This triggers an increased conversion of omega 6 fatty acids to arachidonic acid, which leads to increased prostaglandin 2's. This leads to an increased production of cytokines, which triggers inflammatory response throughout the body. Stage three is when your body can no longer compensate adequately, and you see elevated blood glucose for the first time. This is where most people learn they have diabetes for the first time. Unfortunately the damage caused by elevated insulin levels has been occurring for years or decades. This leads to the symptoms of "metabolic syndrome" characterized by: elevated blood glucose levels, hypertension, obesity, low HDL cholesterol, and high triglycerides. Stage four is clinical diabetes with high insulin levels. The serious bodily damage that began in stage 3 now takes full effect. The body is attacked from both the effects of high insulin and high glucose. Typically stage 4 diabetics will display all metabolic syndrome symptoms plus suffer from loss of sensation in extremities, fatigue, and some loss of vision. The Glucose Sequence: Elevated serum glucose leads to increased intestinal candida and then migration of the candida to upper intestine. Here candida takes root in the duodenum. This leads to migration of candida spores throughout the body leading to chronic candida infection. Stage 5 is clinical diabetes with low levels of insulin (pancreatic exhaustion) and high blood glucose levels. Bodily damage accelerates and risk of blindness, amputation, kidney failure, and heart attack come to the forefront. Ultimately some type 2's will technically become type 1's, without the ability to product any or sufficient insulin.
