WEDNESDAY, July 13, 2016 (HealthDay News) Among obese American adults, control of blood sugar is worsening, leading to more diabetes and heart disease, a new study finds. HealthDay Reporter. WEDNESDAY, July 13, 2016 (HealthDay News) Among obese American adults, control of blood sugar is worsening, leading to more diabetes and heart disease, a new study finds. While blood pressure and cholesterol levels stayed relatively stable among obese adults, poor control of blood sugar led to a 37 percent increase in heart disease risk factors between 1988 and 2014, the. Obesity is defined as a BMI of 30 or more.

Only 2 percent of obese adults had ideal heart health, a figure that remained stable throughout the study period. Between 1988 and 2014, rates of diabetes rose from 11 percent to 19 percent, which was due to increases in blood sugar. WEDNESDAY, July 13, 2016 Among obese American adults, control of blood sugar is worsening, leading to more diabetes and heart disease, a new study finds. In 1962, 46percent of adults in the U.S. were considered overweight or obese. By 2010,that figure had jumped to 75 percent.

Obesity is a complex problem with multiple causes. But among the likely suspects, sugar is high on the list. As sugar consumption has increased, so too has our national waistline. Being overweight or obese predisposes people to a host of medical complications, one of the most serious of which is type 2 diabetes. Among other things, substantial weight gain can lead to insulin resistance, a condition in which your body doesn’t respond normally to the blood-sugar-lowering.

The American Diabetes Association recommends the 15-15 rule if your blood sugar dips below 70 mg/dL: Eat at least 15 grams of carbohydrates, then wait 15 minutes to recheck your blood sugar. Blood sugar may rise in diabetics as heat puts more stress on their system, while others may actually see a drop in blood sugar, it explains. “High temperatures cause blood vessels to dilate, which can enhance glucose absorption and potentially lead to low blood sugar,” it adds. High-fat foods can make your blood sugar stay up for longer. The same is true for pizza, french fries, and other goodies that have a lot of carbs and fat. Check your blood sugar about 2 hours.

Eat enough lean protein and carbs to fuel your workout, ensure muscle recovery, and (with the appropriate insulin dose) stabilize your blood sugar levels. Consider reducing your insulin levels appropriately during the 24 to 36 hours after a workout to adjust for the type of resistance training you’ve done. Have fun in the gym!

If current trends continue, it is projected that by the year 2015, 41% of adults will be obese.62 The increase in obesity in the United States has been associated with the higher caloric content of the diet, mostly caused by increased consumption of refined sugars, sweetened beverages, and vegetable oils.

However, the principal reasons for the recent obesity epidemic include increased consumption of calorie-dense foods, high in saturated fats and refined sugars, coupled with a sedentary lifestyle, resulting in a chronic energy imbalance.

The reasons for this increase are probably related to lifestyle factors, including the increase in the rates of obesity, overeating (particularly sugary foods) and a lack of exercise (Hossain et al., 2007).

The incidence of T1D is increasing, particularly in overweight individuals with lower risk genes (Fourlanos et al., 2008), and insulin resistance, associated with obesity, is a risk factor for progression to clinical disease in individuals with preclinical islet autoimmunity (Fourlanos et al., 2004).

In most cases, the disease initially is associated with normal glucose tolerance but with insulin resistance and a compensatory increase in insulin secretion that is followed by continued deterioration of carbohydrate metabolism (Hansen and Bodkin, 1986; Wagner et al., 1996b, 2001, 2006).

  • Dennis, the scenario reminds of an episode of the TV show, The Outer Limits, where the people of earth finally established contact with an alien race from outer space. After some haggling around the aliens managed to gain the trust of the earthlings and introduced technology that produced higher yields of agricultural crops, corn, wheat, rice, etc. The earthlings grew fat and happy. Things were going so good that the aliens offered to take any of the earthlings who wanted to go to their planet on remarkable space ships. People signed up in droves. Meanwhile, an earthling stumbled upon a book published by the aliens in nd their language, and he finally deciphered. It turned out, too late to adequately warn everyone, that the publication was a cookbook on how to prepare dishes to eat with humans flesh as the main ingredient.
    Really weird, huh??? Is someone fattening humans for gourmet meals?

  • Thanks Brother, for all this great information on insulin resistance you shared. The truth will set you free. God Bless you and your lovely wife for all you do,to help so many people.

  • You know where malnutrition comes from british rule and also malnutrition is genetic after british rule average height decreased in India every fucking bullshit comes from britain sugar processed food
    If indians wants to be strong they have to start weight lifting because it increases muscles and decrease vescral fat and indians have to don’t eat sugar before british rule indians eat jaggery which is poorest form of sugar but rich in iron

  • Thanks to you. I really enjoyed from watching this related product. It can be effective also for you below link����


  • Humans are obligate carnivores. Getting your calories from plants (sugar, starch, seed oils) goes against what mother nature wants and you will get diabetes and its complication if you refuse mother nature. Its no different how a lion will die if you force a plant base diet on it.

  • Another excellent message Dennis. I love your videos, they are clear, honest and helpful. I just checked and I haven’t got that book, will be ordering one. By the way thumbs up to the new look.

  • I’m still mad at the doctors who told me to eat low fat…I gained 50 pounds and my cholesterol sky rocketed. It took me decades to figure out that the advice I’d been given was WRONG. I not question everything they tell me.

  • I enjoy your channel. When you make reference to the AHA or qutoing from a book you read, could give us where it is found. So we Can have the tools to help fight the norm. Can find it on AHA website.

  • This song and “Clover Cage On My Mind” are the two songs keeping me sane through these tough times. I just want to send love to everyone and I want everyone to know things will get better. We are in this together……

  • Vegan and non-refined sugarist since October 2018 and havent felt better since. Because the of Mac Donalds, KFC, poptarts and candy the developing countries will also be diseased like most Westerners.

  • @Beat Diabetes Hello Dennis, I have a request for a topic. I’m sure that you have heard about the Carona virus and that it might become a pandemic. Some of us might have to stay at home and live off the food in the cupboard. (Items in the refrigerator will parish, and I have a small freezer.) My question is, what are some good low carb foods that diabetics and others can have in the cupboard in case of emergency? As the saying goes, hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

  • It’s not just the food. It’s the way they live. People used to work hard everyday with very little food in these nations. Now they are lazier and eat even more.

  • I love that you aren’t using your hair piece! My husband has lost his hair and is still very handsome. The piece was obvious and you now just look BETTER! God bless you!

  • हेलो सब लोग। मैं परदीप हूं। मैं केवल 32 वर्ष का हूं। मैं डायबिटीज का मरीज हूं। मैं बहुत उदास था। मैं समझ नहीं पा रहा हूं कि क्या करूं। लेकिन सौभाग्य से चंडीगढ़ के मेरे एक मित्र ने मुझे Planet Ayurveda के बारे में बताया। मैंने उनके YouTube वीडियो देखे कि कैसे लोगों को इस समस्या से छुटकारा मिल रहा है। फिर, मैंने Planet Ayurveda के Dr. Vikram Chauhan से संपर्क किया, उन्होंने मुझे Diabetes care pack का उपयोग करने का सुझाव दिया। मैंने इसे तुरंत ही इस पैक को मँगवालिया और इसे नियमित रूप से लेना शुरू कर दिया जैसा कि planet ayurveda के डॉक्टरों द्वारा बताया गया है। आप यकीं नहीं मानेंगे । इसने केवल 1 महीने के दिनों में अपना अंतर दिखाना शुरू कर दिया। अब मेरी डायबिटीज काफी हद तक रुक गई है। अब मैं बहुत खुश हूँ।Planet Ayurveda और Diabetes Care Pack के लिए धन्यवाद।

  • catching the replay… thanks:D Was out on a 40 mi bike ride. In PDX so it was overcast in the AM but we got some sun on the last half hour of the ride which is perfect.

  • The fat heart hypothesis pushed by Ansel Keys has more blood in its hands than Hitler and Stalin combined. Complete lies rammed down our throats for so long.

  • You look good, Dennis! So…same day you released this video, Dr Gregor, Nutrition Facts, released his video blaming fat for insulin resistance. I commented that it doesn’t make sense because of your keto diet and results. It’s crazy how much conflicting information. It’s very confusing. Thank you for your videos.

  • Hey Dennis, You look great, and you speak very well. Thank you so much for all the wonderful videos. You are helping many of us. You are a good guy!!

  • Happy you’ve decided to be your real self, appearance wise. It must be freeing not having to deal with that. I have a friend who worries so much people will know he is bald he can’t even relax.

  • Who cares about the hair? Your age is your age but your message is clear. I’m not spiritual like you but I am a Type 1 diabetic and your message is liberating!!

  • I have been recently diagnosed with type 1.5 LADA diabetes at age 68. I would be very interested in all information concerning this topic. Thanks for the good work!

  • If the government came up with a plan to push a dietary plan without evidence for no good reason, do you think they are telling us the truth about the coronavirus?

  • I think you look better without it! I told my husband long ago that if he starts losing his hair he was forbidden to get a toupee or even do a comb over. Much better to age as God lets us.

  • I always think an Irish accent sounds similar to an American accent. (Mid Atlantic). I have to listen hard. But, then the Canadian accent is hard to tell too Except they have a few words they use that are the same as the Scotty’s like about becmes aboot. I feel closer to Canadian because if it and they are still part of the Commonwealth. But I do like American for still using feet and inches Imperial, penny nails and weight is in Imperial. I hate metric as it does not relate to our bodies but Imperial does.

  • Thank you for this update on subgroups of diabetes!! This makes so much sense!! I always enjoy the “nerdy” research! You should never apologize for educating us! ��

  • And women if you talk to women about this they just totally think your nuts some men will listen to you but women just think you’re nuts

  • Eating too many high glycemic foods causes diabetes. It is not a secret. There are people who feed their pet monkeys junk food. The pet monkeys ask for more junk food like an addiction and easily get diabetes.

    It is important to eat a balanced meal. Consume carbs that have a low glycemic index or mix high glycemic foods with meats, chicken, fish, non-carb vegetables. It is how fast the spike in blood sugar that matters. One serving of white rice affects the upside to 10%.

  • Industrial seed oils, high PUFA diet, etc also play a role. There are cultures with low incidence of diabetes who range from very low carb, to very high carb intake. The unifying factor appears to be the introduction of high PUFA intake, which in turn leads to greater insulin resistance, metabolic derangement, & carb intolerance.

  • Science is very complex and correlation might be incorrect because many factor responsible for diseases. As environment is changing around us including diets, we are becoming more susceptible to diseases of western world. India need to more conscience about their lifestyle.

  • I was told I’m diabetic six months ago and have gotten worse by the day! Going to doctors has been a joke and useless! I’m in constant pain and told I can’t get any pain medicine! Because of junkies killing themselves overdosing! I have went to 7 doctor’s and have gotten nothing but pissed off but they are getting rich from my insurance for doing nothing but telling me to go to someone else! Hard to believe there’s something lower than a lawyer but doctors are worse by far! So I sit with diabetic nerve pain day after day with vary little sleep or leaving the house waiting to die or lose my mind because of some stupid junkies and doctors that couldn’t care less!

  • Thank you!!! I have been Keto for years and post menopause’s for 20 years and STILL suffer from PCOS with a beard��. Thanking supplements to reverse metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance to help keto for years. 57 yo female and nutritional brain health’s and nutritional coach. A1c 5.3 but ovarian diabetic, fasting glucose 120. Pray research will offer more answers!��

  • I reduced my fasting insulin all the way from 12.7 to 5.9. But hemoglobin A1C has changed very little. It’s still at 5.8 which is not optimal although it’s not full-blown diabetes either.

  • What stresses me the most is the millions of overweight and unhealthy people in this world. How can the rest of us who take health seriously compete with that? Listening to you Mike is encouraging but it’s very discouraging when I think of the health of the human population and what an uphill battle this all is…

  • Thank you, I am a troubleshooter and look for cause not symptoms. My A1C has dropped down almost by 2 points. Don’t worry about your hair. You look good. kinda makes you seem smarter.

  • Sometimes initially fasts, keto, carnivore or lifestyle can stimulate cortisol leading to high blood sugar. Also sleep deprivation (even for one night) can increase insulin resistance and impair blood sugar regulation

  • Sure, understanding epigenetics is important, but isn’t it easier to just stop shoveling sugar into a body that’s slowly dying of too much sugar, and disregard the details of exactly how much sugar it takes to kill a specific person?

  • Hi Dennis. Costco has a new keto white bread that’s 0 net carbs. It’s really good. Its franz keto bread. I ate 4 slice and it did not raise my blood suger at all. Would you do a review on it? Thank you.

  • Firstly, you look great. Stop worrying about your hair and be glad that, as a man, you need not wear a hairpiece.

    Because of you, although I’m still working on it, I’m living more by my glucometer everyday. Takes work and, A LOT of food dodging, as well. What I mean by that is that, where I work, the company cafeteria staff was burdened with people not always buying what they were selling. Either they’d still bring their own lunch, go out or, God forbid — get food at the salad bar. I think the cafeteria staff was as frustrated with the possible loss of money, as they were with the wasted work.

    They announced a few weeks ago that they would be providing healthier fare. However, mostly what I’ve seen happen instead, has been bread pudding, super gooey brownies, cupcakes. They come out more from behind the counter to promote it, as well. It’s hard for me to not eat it but, I’m still working on it. I have started bringing a tastier salad though and, as I’ve seen with my glucometer what French toast does to me, I’ll need to start making low carb French toast at home, instead.

    Before anyone jumps on me and says, “Just drop anything that has sugar! It’s easy!” I’m sure it’s easier for some than others. I know that there are people out there who naturally gravitate towards foods that are healthier for them. There are also people who gravitate more towards salt, than sugar. Some are also quite relieved that they can eat more meat, eggs and butter. I would imagine that switching to a Low Carb or evening Keto diet is easier for them as, it’s not as much of a switch from what they already enjoy. But for someone who enjoys the sweeter things in life ��, going to work everyday and food shopping can be much like an obstacle course. People who even offer you food, sometimes, wonder why you care what’s in it and, as I can see with my employer’s cafeteria staff, for them, you can fall over dead right there — as long as you’ve swiped your card first… While I don’t want to vilify the unknowing, I also don’t want to imbue upon them that they’d actually care, if they did. Money has always come before life, unless it’s your own.

  • Thank you for removing the hair piece, you look much more authentic now. Ever shave your head. Ive listened to Ivor speak a lot. Wish there were books out that talked about reversing heart disease. My brother is sick and listens to outdated information, im afraid he’s going to die soon without a major shift in thinking.

  • Hey Mike, thanks for the video. Can you also give info about Physiologic Insulin Resistance an whether or not to be concerned about it, how to know if elevated blood glucose is from that or something else, thanks

  • I have the proxy of HCQ, Quercetin di-hydrate. And that other common drug for internal parasites human and animal, invermectin of which you would only require very small amounts if ill, and of course the baby aspirin since they found the body wide micro thrombi occur in situ where ACE is, long BEFORE viral symptoms appear! Might explain the long term suffering of some.

  • Food and nutrition are two totally different concept, big size population live on fast food,refined carbs and processed meat only. Really valuable findings and great to share this video. Thanks

  • Yes Dennis love the new you it suits you quite nicely. Appreciate your message and everything ur doing so we all can stay strong and healthy.

  • Diabetes hits poor countries badly because they arent used to high caloric foods like what is eaten by americans. We are more used to it. Our bodies can handle the extra sugar.

  • The main cause of diabetes is fructose in soda and processed food aggravated by starchy foods and inflamatory so called vegetable oils. People who cannot put on subcutaneous fat can only put on dangerous visceral fat.

  • Thank you Mike, Great info. You are so smart and I appreciate all the science you share. Loved the hiking pics too. So jealous… Florida is so hot and flat… no mountains. Hope to i visit the west coast someday… just put it on my bucket list! Thank u for all you do!

  • Coronavirus is diet related “ diabetes & prediabetes inda please watch my videos Coronavirus lock down raise blood big time “ India get ready “
    Please watch solution my utube videos “

  • It’s a fascinating paper that used previously collected things like age, BMI and insulin resistance to create clusters of individuals, then analyzed how those clusters differed in genetics, and in treatment and results over time. It let me guesstimate that I was in cluster 1 (severe autoimmune) and let me look up on 23andme how I had some genes strongly associated with that cluster.

  • I was listening to a Standard lecture from a decade ago talk about this. Heredity is not just genetic. They noticed this after WWII in the Dutch population I believe, where the Nazi basically forced starvation there. A similar effect appeared there, and also in those children’s children.

  • Much needed information about TOFI and Metabolic Syndrome in thin populations. Not everyone who gets Type 2 Diabetes is also obese. TOFI is real & dangerous.

  • Combining insulin resistance with increased sugar and processed sugar intake has caused an epidemic. Sugar per se isn’t bad, but some people are born without a good ability to produce insulin. Therefore they become pre diabetic or diabetic. Recent changes in the food industry are just bringing to light these health conditions that people already had.

    This documentary brings to light two problems. Malnutrition of a pregnant woman and diabetes, then it goes on to explain how the two may or may not be correlated.

  • You look more like your natural self without the wig Dennis (which is a good thing) but i think you look younger if you dye your hair.

  • Bc indian asians got fkd up genes we store visreal fat but other race people store subcutanious
    Solution lift weight get jacked eat lots of protein n carbs get huge

  • Thank you Dr. Chittaranjan Yajnik and Dr. John Yudkin for your pioneering work. Thank you to the documentary film team for sharing this valuable knowledge with the masses. I am of South Asian ancestry, and my father was afflicted with this horrible disease of diabetes, and he passed away as a result of it. Now my mother has it as well. Not only is diabetes a horrible disease because it shortens ones life, it also severely diminishes the quality of life when you have developed it. So I really appreciate the new insight that you have provided because this issue is quite personal to me.

    The combined effect of low birth weights, B12 deficiencies in mothers, and abrupt generational change in food availability as a plausible explanation of why South Asians are so prone to diabetes is so interesting. It is far more illuminating than the common and dismissive rationale of simply ascribing the high rates of diabetes in this cohort to “its just genetics”. One of the problems with rectifying the B12 deficiency in India is that the richest sources of bioavailable B12 comes from animal sources, and since a large portion of the Indian subcontinent is vegetarian for religious and cultural reasons, they probably are not getting enough of it. Even among the segment of the population that does eat meat, the portions they do eat are generally paltry. So you have most of the nation essentially denying their own future generations of the very substance that can help them ward off diabetes.

  • You look great without the fake hair! As far as you and your wife difference in age… the only thing I see is a loving, caring beautiful couple!

  • I just watched about 7 videos on this subject and yours is by far the most clearly explained. Great visuals as well. Subscribed!

  • Cut the carbs and you lose the Type 2 diabetes. True. See Dr. Eric Westman. Also the best B12 comes from meat and animal-based diets. Higher bioavailability.

  • Look at the importance of B-12. This is why veganism should never be followed by women who are planning to be pregnant. It is, by nature, a B-12 deficient diet. People always point at how vegetarianism and veganism should be followed and use India as an example but look at the bad health outcomes. This is what happens when not enough nutrition from meat and other animal foods is in the diet.

  • Simple fact is if your body burns more calories than you consume. You will be lean. Can be still skinny fat. As long as you don’t have many diaseas

  • Carb loaded food and the forced famine created by the British made Indians genetically prone to storing visceral fat. We need more fat shaming to motivate people.

    Primordial prevention that’s a cool approach.

  • Isn’t this just the easily known fact that BMI is different for people with differing amounts of lean muscle mass? And that BMI is not exactly accurate as a measure of health?

  • It really annoys me when they call it a western diet. It is not traditional Spanish, Italian or Danish food for example, it’s a new invented food group. It is not a traditional western diet.

  • Mike great work as usual. �� thanks
    In my humble opinion it takes a long time, tens of years to develop diabetes
    So I’m sure just because of this it manifests in many ways.

  • Thanks Mike for this more granular discussion of diabetes. I really think it is prudent, as the authors of this study do here, to categorize diabetes by its multifaceted etiology, instead of being content with a simple glucose or hemoglobin A1C measurement. If a malady is multi-factorial in its origins, then it is far more illuminating to define it based on its origins than simply defining it by its consequences. We do this in other areas of life. For example, if a child who was once an exemplary student starts to fail in school, and we are serious about making that child excel, we don’t just say the child got an F on his report card. We ask why? We ask what is the cause? Is he distracted? Is their turmoil in his house? When we see an abrupt change for the worse, we want to know the root cause because it is only by identifying the root cause of the problem that we can formulate an appropriate solution. The same approach should be applied to one of the most pernicious and pervasive diseases to afflict the human race type 2 diabetes.

  • It’s because of genetic differences in populations. Blacks, Mexicans and whites gain more weight than orientals and Indians and Pakistanis.

    Sugar causes the diabetes at the same rates, but those races don’t gain as much weight.

  • Interesting…I may fall into 4 with also some 2 however 2 for me would be much more influenced my diet over the decades of carbs /sugars and not a lack of exercise.
    I will be having some blood work done and will learn more..in the near future-will be interesting for me.

  • Thanks a lot, I’m doing Keto almost last four months, I feel great, my weight and glucose very good, but my blood pressure it’s the same when I started this way of life. What do you recommend? Thanks a lot

  • I agree, I changed my diet and am finding that the more fat I eat like animal fat, butter, olive oil ect….the lower my cholesterol. My current total number is at 163 down from over 200. It was the carbohydrates stressing out my liver in shutting down my testosterone levels and increasing my blood sugar levels and increasing blood pressure along with other side effects. Getting way healthier now by cutting bad carbohydrates.

  • Or, these kids are eating the same vegetarian trash as their parents, which causes a lack of vitamin B12. Fat and meat/organs are protective against diabetes. Just stop eating constant sugar and eat animals like we’re supposed to.

  • its epidemic here in Philippines and the people are getting fat like the west, the western corporate food conglomerates see the markets in asia as very profitable

  • Losing the hair piece was a great idea changed your looks tremendously you are a great looking guy that’s why she chose you for who you were….

  • For age related systemic inflammation. We take MSM powder daily. Wife has back issues so the MSM anti inflammatory power helps. As for glucose tolerance tests, I guess we can do that ourselves. With a glucose meter, or one of those Libre continuous monitors, which I have also ordered. I think a tolerance problem will be pretty obvious, even with a home test, eating some dissolved glucose powder etc etc…

  • Used to love glazed donuts. Haven’t had one in over a year don’t even miss them. Sweets hardly ever touch my lips. When I do cheat it is like a half of moon pie. Low carb no sugar has been a life saver. Feel better then I have in years!

  • I also had lifelong B12 deficiency which we did not know about until 4 or 5 years ago. My nerve damage was getting far worse so my neurologist tested for B12 and intrinsic factor and now I need to take a B12 injection every month at home.

  • Please pass along your social media if you cannot help and I am open to any and all questions. Thank you so much!:-) https://www.gofundme.com/too-young-to-be-housebound?sharetype=teams&member=731184&rcid=r01-153974828211-70a2e815f4e54d07&pc=ot_co_campmgmt_m

  • Thanks, Mike! Been Keto for over 3.5 years, with early success in abating my Pre-Diabetes, and weight loss. But the last 2 years have been seeing my weight slowly creep back up. Over the past couple of months, started to look into the individual foods I was eating to see if they spiked my BG. I was shocked/upset to find out that my fasting BG was 105. Fortunately, I was due for a blood panel, which stated my Glucose at 99, but my A1C was only 4.7, and my insulin came in at 4.2 (out of 1.9 23.0 range). No resistance, no diabetes some 3+ years.

  • You see? We think of Indians as eating healthy because so many of vegetarian or vegan. Trust me don’t go vegetarian or vegan to lose weight it’s just as easy to gain weight as it is to lose it. There is a lot of vegan junk food out there even eating too much fresh fruit is a bad thing too much of anything is a bad thing. I will say as I have said before the country is allowing this junk food in and the people are buying it when they don’t have to! I gave up all of that processed food for the most part when I went vegan. I didn’t go vegan to lose weight I went vegan for the right reasons but even before that I hadn’t had anything fried or fast food in years and the last time I had fast food was two years ago I went to Wendy’s and got a Blackberry lemonade because I was going to be 45 minutes on the road. People don’t have to purchase the junk food I would rather have high quality food and less of it than junk food and more of it! People need to take responsibility and stop with the junk food! Yes it can be like an addiction but so is smoking and I quit smoking after 40 years I had my first cigarette at 8 years old and was a regular smoker by 12 years old. I moved where I live now and I quit overnight I couldn’t smoke in here so I ordered Vape system which I have long since graduated from but I have not had a cigarette in nearly 4 years and I have cigarettes in the laundry room which are probably horribly stale. But what it shows is that I can live with cigarettes in the house and not open a pack and smoke it Outdoors. If I am extremely nervous or having anxiety I will pick up my vape and a cup of coffee and I don’t think I will ever go back to cigarettes so it can be done and if you have children don’t let them start! Don’t make food a fun family thing on the weekend because you go to KFC and Taco Bell! Have game night or movie night make popcorn don’t go out to the fast-food because there’s nothing else to do. And don’t bring it into your home. Indians used to bake and still do quite a bit at home and it’s much healthier than buying pastries and candy bars in the shops.

  • So essentially, prenatal exposure to increased fat levels ready the cells by helping them adpot a certain insulin training pattern & become resilient to future fat flooding.

    However when cells are deprived of this training (aka low birth weight) their response to increased fat levels later in life is erratic & haywire.

  • The John Yudkin in this video is the nephew of the John Yudkin who wrote Pure, White and Deadly. He most certainly knows sugar causes diabetes, unless he is a complete idiot.

  • John Yudkin? Any relation to John Yudkin, author of Pure, White and Deadly? the man who tried to warn us back in the 1950’s that sugar consumption causes heart disease?

  • Us people who spend too much time at gyms or with fitness in general know that having the correct body fat percentage is quite possibly one of the most important benchmarks a human can achieve. BMI is there too, but you do all those weight trainings just to avoid being ‘thin fat’.

  • Hi Dennis! Love the new look! Your looking like John Cleese now! I think the real way to find out how likely you are to have a heart attack is by doing a coronary artery calcium score test. Have you done this test before Dennis? If so, can you share your results with us? I think this test will really prove that carbs are the bad guys and fats are not!

  • I am 100% insulin-resistant as I have a genetic disorder no one else in the world has as of yet but causes my insulin receptors not to function. I was a research patient and they won’t speak to me any longer and the lead doctor is the dean of Harvard Medical School now. Is also a man in England who studied me in Boston and then when I lived in the UK wanted my blood. His name was O’Rehilly. My doctors as I said said will not even speak to my doctors. If anyone is interested in trying to help me and name this I would be grateful.

  • Could you convent why HbA1c might increase slightly on keto? My blood sugar is consistent “high” (mid 90s) although ketones are above 0.5. I would love to hear your opinion.

  • If love to learn more about these subgroups and figure out which one I’m in plus how to go about correcting for it long term if possible

  • Its only a “major mystery” to the medical establishment. People are easily and quickly curing themselves of type 2 diabetes by moving to a whole food diet with minimum animal protein. Processed food and animal protein are very hard on the pancreas, much harder than sugar, and this leads to the exhaustion of the organ. At best the body can only digest 25% of animal protein, the undigested portion ends up clogging the elimination pathway.

  • Why do none of the keto “gurus” never adress that fat can also cause type 2 diabetes therefore raising blood sugar levels in the process?

  • I recently listened to Dr. Ben Birkman who mentioned one among several causes of insulin resistance is formation of ceramides in the fat, muscle, liver and pancreas tissues. I love to hear you do a video deep diving on the mechanism of how this actually happened, and how a diet high in saturated fat, which we ( as keyonian and carnivor) all say is healthy for us in many ways, can possibly contribute to lipid mediated insulin resistance. I hope to get more clarity on this. Many thanks!

  • Looking good Dennis!
    “Each 5 percent of sat fat that you replace with carbs is associated with a 7% higher risk of coronary heart disease.” I could not find this information on the AHA website but would like to share this with my father. If you can find the source, can you please comment below?

    I did find this study from the Lancet https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(17)32252-3/fulltext which I think you will find interesting!

  • Thank you Mike! Great info as always!
    Would you please talk about gallbladder/ gall stones and keto. I’ve been on mostly keto/cycling carbs for years and for the first time in my life (I’m 45) I’ve been having gallbladder pain. I don’t want to quit keto nor to have my gallbladder removed but my gallbladder is complaining. What to do?
    I heard too much intermittent fasting causes gall stones? I’m confused.
    THANK YOU so very much for sharing so much valuable content! ������ You’re such a blessing!!! ������

  • Congrats on ditching the wig! I was getting bald around age 30 and 57 now. I just buzz it down to stubble. It feels great and no maintenance. No musss, no fuss.
    Continue to do God’s work and helping folks with “shining” confidence.

  • It scares me to death,almost as much as Covid-19,about how more and more people are getting diabetes! I read the medical world had to change the name of type 2 diabetes from adult-onset because doctors are finding children are getting it too. World seems to be getting sicker and polluted! When I was in school,only one or two kids had an allergy to peanuts or some other food,now I read its now 5 or 6 per class (elementary school).

  • @High Intensity Health Oh man this is what made me a subscriber! I really appreciate the outside the box way of thinking. Keep doing what you are doing, I know something you may face discouragement on your channel, but there is not a single person who escapes that. But your approach is what makes us feel your talking directly to us and I don’t see that in many YouTubers who do that. Not that I am saying they are bad, they are still helpful. But I like your approach in delivering content.

  • Hi Mike, thanks for the video. I have asthma and I use corticoids to control it. Due to that, even doing keto since 2016, my morning blood sugar is always near 100. So, in my case is a kind of medication induced pre diabetes. Regards from Brazil.

  • I would assume if you had B.G.L’s.between 0 and 25 through out a day,that would good.The average
    would be 12.5.There again I can see Diabetics can take Insulin.

  • I agree Mike. Based on my experience in reversing my own T2 diabetes from an HA1c of 6.3 to 5.0, there is still a lot to be discovered. For example, I recently completed a 6-month campaign of 3 cycles of 21-day fast/10-day refeed/30-day workout protocol. When I dropped into the weight range of my undergraduate years I started developing arthritic symptoms usually during the last 3-to-4 days of the fast which became more painful during refeed with the final refeed seeing a full blown re-occurrence of gout which I had not experienced in 6 months. Upon research and reviewing my findings and hypothesis with an endocrinologist at the US Medical School who I consult with weekly I found that burning decades-old visceral fat was releasing pre-inflammatory cytokines that were raising my uric acid level. When I started eating purine-rich foods during refeed, it was similar to lighting a match in a gas station. Treatment protocol was 3 phases: immediate pain relief, short-term relief and long-term relief. All 3 phases were successful, with the 3rd resuming my allopurinol prescription. Also should mention I still suffer from Stage 3a CKD so I have impaired kidneys in flushing out uric acid.

  • Don’t forget about nutrients like Chromium which are involved in blood sugar metabolism. One type of diet I will never consider is a carnivore diet. None of the societies that have large numbers of centenarians follow a carnivore diet. Excessive animal protein is bad.

  • this study is kinda invalid. because then it would claim that in the modern age which there is more food for mothers there should be less diabetes rate

  • I use a Keyto stick to measure my rough ketone levels after days of caloric restriction, and it’s pretty amazing what exercise can do to help. I ate probably just under 1000 Calories and even gave into the temptation of a late night donut… But because of the 2 hours of basketball I did, I still blew a 3 this morning, which I wasn’t expecting.

  • I have been successfully managing my T2D for 22 years with keto (Atkins then). The only time I do not get a large gluconeogenic spike in the morning after waking is on an extended fast. It’s like I am two different people. I believe I have some level of metabolic syndrome not caused by diet. I call it The Naked Diabetes.

  • Hmm I am 34, lean, fit, very active, super low Insulin and C-Peptide, A1C 5.0, hsCRP below detection, still fasting blood sugar 95. None of your new groups unfortunately. So if you ever find something for that group, please let us know:)

  • Thank you for the information.

    The incidence of type 2 diabetes, hitherto considered a disease of middle and old age, has been steadily increasing among children and adolescents. Data from developed countries shows that this increase parallels a similar rise in the prevalence of childhood and adolescent obesity. While type 2 diabetes in children and adolescents is as yet not a major public health problem in India, recent reports revealing increasing levels of obesity among youngsters especially in our metropolitan cities, gives cause for concern.

  • Impressive and admirable how such a rustic and unsophisticated hospital and research group in india found so many complex and useful information… Dayumm

  • I just looked at the Lancet study. The missing subtype appears to be Severe Autoimmune Diabetes. They say this is the smallest cluster ( fewer people have it).

  • Kudos on a clear and concise video with new and useful information! Most definitely interested in deeper dive into each subtype. What’s the 5th subtype?

  • Some of us want the scientific jargon, Mike! Teach us and don’t apologize!! And thank you for the great video, as usual. ������������

  • Knew it ahairpiece,glad you are free,had a husband who lost hair early and 2 sons as well, wonderful men,no worries.Video has such powerful input! Thanks again.

  • If one has high blood sugar when on a low carb diet then it could be related to the electrical environment. My body has a strong reaction to the powercord that charges a laptop. Any power cord that has a brick on it, or transformer, that black rectangular thing you see will spew off a manmade electric magenetic field and will drive up my blood sugar.

  • All Indian food is JUNK food. High carbohydrate, high glucose, low fat and NO meat diet is what causes diabetes, cancer and many other diseases. Whenever a human cuts out carbs and starts eating non-processed NATURAL foods like meat, fat and dairy products they become pictures of vibrant health. Down with VEGANISM!

  • I’ve seen your video bragging on how helpful the feestyle Libre is. I tried it several months ago and found it to be useless. But inspired by your video I decided to give it another shot. I mean it’s just complete garbage. I just checked mine and it’s said 81. I was so happy to see a good blood sugar before lunch. Then I used my meter. 115. This is pretty standard for me with this technology. It’s just useless. Waste of money.

  • IDK what my glucose levels ride at because I have been too lazy to check. I did lose 62 pounds. I just did some travelling and hiking for five days and I ate poorly. Pizza,breads,peanut butter,tortillas,spam etc.) I gained 13 pounds in five days! Back home and doing strictly beef and salt now, we will see how long it takes to lose this! Fat and bloated in Indiana. Stay low carb my friends!

  • India has high diabetes because they eat lots of fried food! Cut the oil and animal products in your diet and cooking and your diabetes goes away! No oil in cooking not even a drop!

  • Have you physically tried a little of experimental farming? According to Soviet era research it says otherwise and vitamin B12 are high if you are using heirloom natural genetic varieties of rice, practicing deep plowing, recycling all organic wastes and mixing composite rock dust mixtures as the organic wastes turned into humus creating humic acids that dissolves the composite rock dust mixtures (rock dust powder as fine as baby powder dissolves in water) and making the soil is given sufficient time to make itself properly and well biogeochemically balanced. Physical evidence is undeniable proof and irrefutable physical factors. Ever heard of beri-beri? Prisoners living on brown rice never had beri-beri but when given white rice they started having beri-beri and that is a scientific physical fact for it happened in the past in some Southeast Asian prison. And the other eating habits that might includes foods that might interfere with B12 absorption. The list is very long. DON’T BE ONLINE DEPENDENT, READ PHYSICAL PRINTED BOOKS GOING WAY BACK TO THE PAST IN THE 1990s, 1980s, 1970s, 1960s, 1950s, 1940s, 1930s, 1920a, 1910s, 1900…..and check your library microfilm archives concerning food and nutrition. We have been warning of a digital dark age and a digital dictatorship, and now BOTH ARE HAPPENING CREATING CENSORSHIP, DELETION, DISINFORMATION, MISINFORMATION, HALF TRUTHS/HALF LIES, ETC. With physical printed books and microfilm archives with microfilm equipments and office equipments and starting from the present edition to the past and 1st edtition you can have all of the information simultaneously open to you to conduct instantaneous access and cross-referencing capabilities while showing all themselves of their contents to you simultaneously. Unfortunately houses today do not even have a library room and a study-library room/office room filled with books covering all fields of human knowledge of civilization. A large library with large tables and well lighted and well equipped with 1970s and 1960s and early 1980s era office equipments and other technologies to make research-studying convenient are the required infra-technostructures. But now they are most missing in your American households, not all, but most of them are ill-equipped for they have been brainwashed that all they need is a computer and that is wrong for they have no physical printed books/microfilm archives libraries with the necessary analog equipments to do the required cross-referencing and counter-checking. All printed media such as textbooks, books, pocket books, hard bound books, encyclopedias, dictionaries, maps, calendars, leaflets, pamplets, booklets, mini-mags, etc, covering all the ages of the past many decades before the year 2000 is what you must acquire and study. Study speed reading, speed comprehension, speed retention, speed memorization, speed thought organization of knowledge in a well properly orderly manner, speed mental recall, etc. That way you won’t miss a single thing.

  • Thank you. Would love to hear more on ageand obesity-related diabetes. I am female, obese according to scale, 73 with 44% body fat, 32% muscle mass.

  • I understand that sugar and flour are bad. I don’t understand why saturated fat is good. Seem to be plenty of studies that show links between saturated fat and diabetes.

  • Whole food plant based diet is the answer for diabetes! Don’t use animal products and oils in your cooking! Just eat legumes, whole grains and lots of veggies and fruits and see how miracles happen!

  • Got a bit of shock with thickened cream. Thought I would test its effect on ketones. Made small cup of the cream with dissolved coffee powder and sweetener. Consumed it. 90 minutes later BS 4.9 Ketones 1.8 (up 1.0) Never realized cream could have that effect… so will test this again. Better than coconut oil, or MCT oil both of which make me feel a bit off. On keto at the moment, but with more protein than normal… so in and out of ketosis.

  • On High-carb, low-fat I was watching Cyrus Khambatta and Robby Barbaro on Rich Roll’s channel, I felt it was some kind of sham because I didn’t hear much science. I went to Paul Saladino’s podcast with those two plant-based guys.

    Here’s my comment at Rich Roll’s channel:
    After listening to Cyrus, Robby and Paul (Saladino), I’d probably say the concern isn’t plainly just carbs or fat or protein/meat.

    It’s processing.

    Processing, for example, plants to turn into productized carbs processed carbs and refined carbs either by itself or adding in either protein or fats makes the diet not good.

    Processed meats aren’t healthy either.

    We all know that fats don’t spike Insulin, protein does in moderate fashion and carbohydrates do spike Insulin.

    Now, comparing the spike of Insulin individually for the 3 macros and comparing it to the combined effects of Carbs+Protein and then Carbs+Fat to Carb+Fat+Protein, we get a clearer idea why the approach Robby and Cyrus mentions works. Add the fact that they both support Intermittent Fasting.

    We also get the idea why a carnivore diet works, even a ketogenic diet.

    The problem with SOME RCTs and funded studies is that they muddy the details just to force their favored result.

    High-fat won’t induce Insulin Resistance; high fat as in natural fat source from meats, fish, others. The processed version, however, toxic.

    High carb won’t induce Insulin resistance. Cyrus and Robby are clear examples. Processing plants to yield processed and refined carbs definitely will and add to that High-fructose corn syrup.

    I do hope Cyrus, Robby and Paul do get to meet up one of these days and acknowledge the diets of one another and weed out the untruths.

    My concern with plant-based High-carb, low-fat diets are
    • oxalates
    • autoimmune due to plant enzymes

    Going carnivore had my eczema go away and up until today, my Allergic Rhinitis isn’t acting up.:)

    Really good review, Dennis.

    I haven’t gotten a copy of Ivor’s book but I might by next week. Thanks.:)

  • Well done! At 74 I decided to stop dyeing my long hair. I got it cut really short and embraced the natural grey. I’ve had nothing but compliments ever since. As a newly diagnosed diabetic with hbp I am now your fan. Keep up the good work.

  • Great video Mike…. please do one addressing the Inflammaging you speak of….. specifically what to DO about it… I’m 58 & want to THRIVE not just survive… thanks ��������

  • Taylor: ‘with every guiter string scar on my hand, I’ll take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover’ is my favourite line.
    Me: Me too! ����������

  • The subtleties and complexity of biology is staggering.
    Excellent observation and research by Dr. Chittaranjan Yajnik and Dr. John Yudkin.

  • You should think about the consequence of your magnetic field being too stronggorgeous

  • good! lookin forward to more details. i got the nutrisense CGM. Not thrilled with it. Takes a day to normalize; i sleep with my arm under my pillow yowch; only samples every 15 minutes (a blood check can be every 5 or 10); it loses data after 8 hours. What device would you recommend? I’ve heard of a KetoMojo or somethin. Anyways my weight is perfect now. I”m 55. eating mooostly keto between 10am and 5pm. but my base glucose was about 105 on average. i did a 48 hr fast when dropped it to a base of about 90. I’m not strict keto but I thought I’d be around 80 or 90 but my past physicals show me a hair over 100…

  • This was great, I have been researching “why does my blood sugar go up when i do not eat?” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across Anebriel Foundational Ascendancy (should be on google have a look )? It is an awesome exclusive guide for discovering how to reverse type 2 diabetes without the hard work. Ive heard some decent things about it and my neighbour got great success with it.

  • Is the fishbowl known as the public eye?
    Is the snowball known as a microcosm?
    Is the dollhouse known as a place for fantasy?
    Is her world upsidedown?

  • Dr. Chittaranjan Yajnik and his team are doing exceptional work in the field of Diabetes. I always look forward to reading his research.

  • fun fact: This music video concept was inspired by the lyric “You two are dancing in a snow globe, go round and round” from the song “You’re in Love”. Taylor said about it at the end of the Lover Live Lounge video. Go watch it.

  • We are taking our oldest daughter, age 14, on a 5 day, 60 mile backpacking trip in the Glacier Peak Wilderness next month. Lots of miles on the Pacific Crest Trail. It’s a phenomenal area! You should check it out-its near you…

  • What is the correlation with ac1 at 5.8 or 5.7 and kidney protein release? Going thru this, and was advised not doing keto, and not eat red meat much. Thank you for all your videos and ministry. God bless you always.

  • This song deserves more views….
    I mean…that’s my damn favourite song…
    This beautiful song with beautiful TS deserves more attention…
    I don’t know what’s happening people??!!!
    Just can’t understand!!!!
    But this song is a healer…No doubt!!

  • Mike, have you heard anything about the Lifewave X39 patches? Apparently a chemical free way of invoking stem cell production via a patch?

  • I don’t have a dramatic story but just want to say this. I was diagnosed 12 years ago at age 58 with an A1C of 6.8. I had a revolutionary endocrinologist who put me on a 2 meal a day 30 grams of carb diet. No sugar, grains or starches. Within just weeks my A1C was 5.7 and stayed in that vicinity for years. Then a few years ago he died in a tragic accident, the next year I got breast cancer, I neglected my diet, and my A1C crept up to 6.2. Also a few years ago I developed high blood pressure. I take 3 different medications for that. This year I started taking things seriously again, especially since the pandemic, and staying home and not eating out. Started using “Mr. Mike” more to test and restricting carbs. I think my new endocrinologist will be shocked when he sees me in Oct. because my A1C is hovering near 5.4-5.5 and my family doctor is cutting back my blood pressure medication because my blood pressure is going so low. Have also lost 17 pounds since January. That’s a substantial loss because my weight wasn’t an issuein the normal BMI range. Anyway, what I’d like to say is that I needed to be re-motivated and your videos have done that.

  • I loved taylor swift music but now i respect her she has a black guy in her video ^-^ talking and doing is two diffrent thing and she did it:3

  • We took the kids out hiking all the time When they were young
    They still like walking for great outdoors exercise and biking too
    Much love xoxox thanks

  • I am diabetic type 2..I was on metformin for about a year, I had very bad side effects which never went away. I will never suggest taking it to anyone. It’s one of the worst drugs out there. I am doing Keto diet to help control blood sugar and it’s totally working with no doctors medication

  • Watching the replay. Cycled 45 miles in the last 3 days. Swam laps yesterday morning. Getting jacked and tan.��☀️ Down 16lbs since lockdown. 58lbs total from keto/carnivore. I love that you and your daughter are getting out and making memories! Keep up the great content! You have a heart of gold!

  • Gabor Erdosi did a fantastic presentation about how the greater the carbohydrate cell well is broken down the greater the incretin response: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rcfvRGZsDs&t=78s Bottom line, eat whole unprocessed/unrefined carbs if you eat carbs. Also, fasting blood glucose and fasting insulin levels are highly correlated with BMI. IMO, this needs to be discussed more.
