Is diabetes an incurable disease type 2 diabetes should it get worse all the time as it usually does or is that a simply that is that the course were treating it totally wrong or not even treating it at all that's what I'm going to talk about with my guests today I'm not dressing fit from diet doctor for Carmen I'm here with dr. Jason Tania neurologist from Canada welcome thanks very much so I just watched a presentation by you I thought was really fantastic um it was about how we treat diabetics today in a medical system and your nephrologist you meet you meet diabetics when they're when they've had issues for a long time and they're really sick right yeah so I treat people on dialysis that's a lot of what I do and it's very disheartening too because what happens is that when they develop their disease are so sick but the diabetes itself is actually quite reversible and that's one of the things that I realized a short while ago and that's what needs to be understood is that this is not a disease that needs to progress but we often tell people so that it's a chronic progressive disease and that's not simply me talking but if you go to the Diabetes Association's whether it's the American Diabetes Association or the diabetes Australia they all put out there that this is a chronic disease and they tell people essentially that you have diabetes you'll have it for the rest of your life you might as well get used to it but the problem is that that's simply not true and it's actually pretty easy to to prove it because if somebody came up to me and said I've had diabetes told I had diabetes I watched my diet I lost 50 pounds I cut my carbs I cut my sugar and now they took me off of my medication I'm fine now that's obviously true nobody would say oh you're lying right so that patient who has lost the weight who has changed their diet has increased their exercise for instance their diabetes actually got better and the thing is that if that patient got better what happens to this idea that this is a chronic progressive disease well obviously it's not true because anytime that happens every time it happened it means that the disease is actually reversible but you have to know how to reverse it if you don't know how to reverse it then you're just going to get worse and the thing is that the drugs don't actually do anything for the disease and this is also not controversial because the thing is that type 2 diabetes is a disease of too much insulin resistance and that's not controversy so everybody acknowledges that right so if you have very high insulin resistance it's going to cause high blood sugar right but that's the symptom of the disease the disease is actually too much insulin resistance so the treatments that we give are are all targeted at blood sugar right that doesn't make any sense because it's almost like to give an analogy if you have an infection if you have a leg infection well you need to treat that infection so what was causing it was bacteria you give antibiotics but that infection can give you a fever but that fever is not the disease if you start treating that fever as if it is the disease then that leg wound is going to Fester because you're treating the symptoms of the disease and ignoring the disease but that's what we've done with type 2 diabetes we're treating the blood sugar but it's not it it's not a disease of the blood sugar it's a disease of too much insulin resistance so what happens is that because we're not treating the disease the disease tends to progress so if you look at what happens over a period of 10 years 15 years what happens is that you start off with one medication then you take two medications and three then you take insulin and more incident more insulin and after ten years you started with one medication now you're on 100 units of insulin a day well you're taking more medication to do the same job to keep that blood sugar the same that means your diabetes is worse even if your blood sugar is better your diabetes is worse than it's ever been because you've never actually done anything about treating the insulin resistance so that patient who went and lost weight and exercise and cut out the carbs and cut out the sugars they actually reverse their insulin resistance and therefore their sugars came down which is far different than making your blood Sugar's got to go down by force by medication and ignoring the actual disease so that's the fundamental mistake that we've made over this last 20 30 40 years right we've treated the disease of type 2 diabetes which is too much insulin as if it was type 1 diabetes which is too little insulin so you got to understand that type 1 diabetes has too little insulin so that makes sense you should give them insulin type 2 diabetes is too much insulin you need to reduce their insulin but instead we're giving more insulin to a disease state that has too much insulin well of course it's crazy that's crazy you had an analogy there as well that in your talk you're saying it's like it would be like treating an alcoholic whether exactly so if you have a disease such as alcoholism where is characterized by too much alcohol the very last thing you want to do is give more alcohol and that seems very obvious right but if you look in the short-term as you take away the alcohol they might get the shakes they might get delirium tremens
