Can Keto Cure Diabetes?


so I’ve been following the protocol for two or two-and-a-half years and I got my a 1c down from seven point three to five point nine but when I hear the word reversal I’m confused okay because mom only reversed until I eat a piece of toast well so what you would be confused about then is the word cure and that’s why we avoid it because we’re not curing anyone from type 2 diabetes because of exactly what you just said welcome back y’all today we’re asking the question can keto cure diabetes yeah yeah can the keto diet cure type 2 diabetes okay I would love to be able to say that we cure people but that’s not true okay maybe someday we’ll get there that’s dr. Sarah Hallberg medical director at Verta health and you are about to understand how she clarifies her position that the keto diet does not cure type 2 diabetes this video will illustrate the careful management of public perception crafted by dr. Hal Berg and her colleagues at Verta health and then provide you with the real solutions to the problems you’re about to understand you see words like cure and remission were chosen by the American Diabetes Association when they convened an expert panel in 2009 to improve clarity and create understanding in the way the language should be used in the medical literature this panel noted the distinction between successful treatment and cure is blurred in the case of diabetes they even warned that for a chronic illness such as diabetes it may be more accurate to use the term remission than cure this is where it gets interesting folks the 2009 ad a panel went on to define remission of diabetes in several ways such as partial mission complete remission and prolonged remission these words have specific meanings in a medical context and since remission is less likely to generate buzz on social media than the word cure the savvy promoters of Kido at Verta health have sidestepped these conventions and deliberately chosen a different word altogether for the results of their intervention reversal don’t we actually talked about what the right word is because in other word people have used is remission also but honestly I do believe that reversal is the most accurate fairest descriptor to use because when we think about it think about the cycle right we all know that our patients get into this horrible vicious cycle you know their blood sugar goes up they actually get bigger cravings they’re eating more carbohydrates you know they need more medications you know their body is kicking out more of their fat storage hormone I mean around and around and around we go and so when we implement again a change in lifestyle what is the honest thing what exactly is happening we’re truly brain reversing out of that cycle we’re going backwards okay I would love to be able to say that we cure people but that’s not true the misleading nature of using this language for marketing purposes or generating social media buzz is debatable but as pointed out by nutrition expert Stephan Guillen a PhD the term reversal has even worked its way into the medical literature they are preparing to publish on their two-year results it is my opinion that this use of language within the medical literature outside of the established conventions from the previously mentioned 2009 ad a expert panel constitutes a blurring of the lines between the expectations people assume based on social media buzz and the results they are capable obtaining in reality dr. Hallberg is aware of the results her patients are obtaining in reality and is careful in qualifying her next statements everyone is at risk still I mean anyone who’s had this disease is that risk for it becoming a problem again even if they’ve reversed out which is one of the reasons actually that we encouraged our patients even if they had reversed out of their type-2 diabetes to stay on metformin because that’s indicated outside of just type 2 diabetes and and let’s face it even if they’re doing well now they are still at great risk for redeveloping a problem if they deviate into carbohydrates at all her justification for keeping all of the patients on metformin makes sense from a diabetes management and patient care perspective but the same esteemed nutrition PhD was kind enough to point out that reversal and diabetes management are not exactly the same thing so if keto is not a cure for type 2 diabetes and diabetes management is a more accurate description than reversal when it comes to the results you can expect to obtain what happens if you eat a small amount of carbohydrates if they eat if they go back to eating the way that they used to a piece of toast you know a dish of pasta then the blood sugar will instantly become a problem again if you can’t eat a piece of toast without your blood sugar instantly becoming a problem have you reversed your type-2 diabetes hmm amidst all the social media buzz about the keto diet reversing and curing type 2 diabetes didn’t you expect to one day be able to metabolize carbohydrates properly so you could enjoy an apple maybe a banana or a plate of pasta unfortunately that’s not how this works if you choose Kido for diabetes management in my opinion you will remain cornered in a place where you must restrict carbohydrates as long as you stay on that plan the ketogenic world number one I have a lot of respect for them they are all trying hard to eat well and that’s great I respect that the thing is what we’re teaching we just want every understand is the ketogenic diet makes insulin resistance worse yes you can get great short-term results but you’re actually worsening the disease process for those living with pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes recent research from 2018 indicates a plant-based diet is capable of not only improving beta cell function in the pancreas but also improving insulin sensitivity in the presence of metabolizing carbohydrates the people in this study were generally health-conscious people who were willing to make substantial changes in their diet and wanted to lose some weight now doesn’t that sound just like most people you know who decided to try the keto diet they were willing to make substantial changes in their diet and wanted to lose some weight the big difference is these people on the plant-based diet were able to eat nearly 70% of their total calories from carbohydrates it doesn’t sound to me like they would have much trouble with a piece of toast or a plate of pasta alright y’all if you want to learn how to health is able to report improvements in insulin sensitivity in patients who are still unable to eat a single piece of bread I have created a video explaining exactly how they do this in detail and while you’re learning about this topic you should see this video which explains how they are able to report improvements in cardiovascular disease risk factors on the high-fat keto I’ll create a vertical playlist for you with these videos and put a link to it at the end of this video please watch and share this information and consider contributing a dollar on patreon we all know what time it is red pill vegan next [Music]
