In this film we’re going to explain how
your body processes the food you eat
in order to provide all your body cells
with the energy they need,
and also what happens when you have
and this system doesn’t work properly.
When you eat food that contains
it’s broken down in the stomach and
digestive system into glucose, which is
a type of sugar.
sugar. We need glucose from food because that’s what gives us energy.
Carbohydrate containing foods are things like starchy foods,
sugary foods, milk, and some dairy products
and fruit. This glucose then moves into the bloodstream and the body detects
that the blood glucose level is rising. In response to that
the pancreas, which is a little gland
that sits just underneath the stomach,
starts to release a hormone called
and it’s insulin that helps our body get the energy from the food we eat.
The blood stream then takes the glucose and the insulin
to every cell in our body that needs it.
To make this easier to understand let’s
look at muscle cells.
At the muscle cells it’s insulin
that allows the glucose to get into the
cells where it can be used for energy.
It’s a bit like insulin is a key
unlocking the door to the cells
so the glucose can get in.
That way, the blood glucose levels starts to drop but
the blood glucose level can be topped up
at any point by the liver
releasing extra glucose that it has stored. The blood glucose rises again,
and again, the pancreas produces more
insulin to move with that glucose
through the bloodstream to the muscle
cells, open the doors
and let the glucose in.
The body functions best with the blood glucose at an optimum level.
It doesn’t like it if the blood glucose rises too high.
Normally there’s a cycle within the body which balances out
the glucose and the insulin level and this is achieved
the food you eat, the pancreas and the
However in some people the system
doesn’t work properly
and they develop diabetes. There are two main types of diabetes –
Type 1 and Type 2. In Type 1 diabetes
the body isn’t making any insulin at all. This is because of an
autoimmune response whereby
the body has destroyed the insulin
producing cells in the pancreas.
We don’t entirely know why that happens in some people
and not in others. Type 1 diabetes
accounts for about 10 per cent of all cases.
It’s most often found in the in the
under 40s
and it’s by far the most common type of
diabetes found in childhood.
In Type 1 diabetes the
carbohydrate-containing food is turned into glucose as normal. That glucose
then moves into the bloodstream. Normally
the body would produce insulin to let that glucose into the cells but because
into the cells but in Type 1 diabetes
there is no insulin being produced so
the glucose
can’t get into the body cells at all, so the level of glucose in the blood
rises and rises. The body tries to lower
the level of glucose,
it tries to get rid of the glucose through the kidneys.
That’s why people who have undiagnosed
Type 1 diabetes
tend to go to the toilet a lot to pass
As the kidneys filter the glucose out of the blood,
they also take a lot of water with it so
the person with diabetes will get very
The urine contains a lot of glucose
and that creates an environment where
it’s quite easy for bacteria to thrive
so it’s also quite common to get thrush
or genital itching.
In the same way the blood contains a
high level of glucose as well
so more bacteria than usual will tend
to breed in flesh wounds
and they might be slow to heal. Glucose can also build up
in the lens at the front of the eye causing the liquid in the lens to become cloudy.
That can mean that some people with
undiagnosed Type 1 diabetes
can have blurred vision. Because the
glucose can’t get into the cells
to be used for energy, somebody who’s got undiagnosed Type 1 diabetes
is going to start feeling very tired,
and unable to go about their normal
daily routine. But the body still needs
an energy source
in order to work properly so what it
does is it starts to break down its
fats tools
and that can lead to weight loss.
So, the main symptoms of Type 1
are going to the toilet a lot, thirst,
thrush or genital itching,
slow healing of wounds, blurred vision
tiredness and weight loss. These symptoms
generally happen quite quickly often over a few weeks
and come be reversed once the diabetes
is treated with insulin.
Type 2 diabetes accounts for about
90 per cent of all cases in the
It’s most common in the over 40 age group in the white population
and in the over 25 age group in the
South Asian population.
Type 2 diabetes is a little more complex
because there are slightly more processes at
Either the body isn’t producing quite
enough insulin
or the insulin it is producing isn’t
working properly.
That can be due to being overweight
because a build up of fat can stop
insulin doing its job properly
but it can also happen in people of a healthy weight.
So in Type 2 diabetes, the
carbohydrate-containing food is broken
down into glucose
in the stomach and digestive system as normal. That glucose
then moves into the bloodstream. The
starts to produce insulin which moves
with the glucose
through the bloodstream to all the body
cells which need
glucose for energy. However the
glucose can’t always get into the cells
because the locks to the cell doors
have become furred up with fat deposits. That means that the
insulin can’t open the cell doors
So the level of glucose in the blood
continues to rise.
In response to this, the pancreas
even more insulin so the blood glucose
levels continue to rise
and the insulin levels continue to rise.
This situation is further complicated by
the cells
which are desperate for energy – sending
out emergency signals to the liver
to release stored glucose. The blood glucose level
up and up and the pancreas produces more
and more insulin
until it can’t cope anymore and
eventually it can wear out.
As with Type 1 diabetes the symptoms of
Type 2 diabetes
are going to the toilet a lot, thirst,
thrush or genital itching, slow healing of
blurred vision, tiredness and weight loss
in some people.
The symptoms for Type 2 diabetes come
very slowly and some people don’t
have any symptoms at all.
So for that reason, people can live with
Type 2 diabetes for up to 10 years
before they realise that they have it. Type
2 diabetes
can be treated in a number of different
ways. Initially it may be sufficient to
make changes to the food you’re eating
and to take extra physical activity or
lose any weight
that may be appropriate. But Type 2
is a progressive condition and most
people will need some form
of medication to treat it

    Diabetes UK Can you cite the paper that shows that the body doesn’t make any insulin.

  2. Cryptosomania Posted on March 7, 2018 at 5:21 pm

    According to a 2012 study by the American Diabetes Association, nearly 30 million people were suffering from diabetes in our country. The majority of the statistic was Type 2 diabetes that is mostly seen in adults. Unfortunately, the same study quoted that nearly that many people have undiagnosed diabetes. With pandemic proportions such as these, no wonder there is a plethora of books and articles about the disease.

    If you suffer from diabetes, you have probably read your share of diabetic studies and have thought about the perennial wonder treatments in the media. Since you may have experienced disappointment with information and treatments in the past, you might be cynical about yet another book.

    Excellent Video! Forgive me for butting in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you considered – Patlarny Diabetes Ruins Principle (do a google search)? It is a good one off product for destroying diabetes without the hard work. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my friend at very last got excellent results with it.

    I was on pre diabetes, when I went to doctor for consulting, Doctor said you are on pre diabetes. He didn't give me any medicine but instead he advised me to control the food, do walking daily for about 5KM per day.. Since I'm following this, few days back I checked my blood sugar is become normal..

  11. Sha Khan Posted on April 6, 2018 at 5:30 pm

    When I checked my fasting blood sugar first time my result was 128 mg/dl. After I control my food and walking 5km per day, my blood sugar come down at 106 mg/dl.. now I'm feeling better. So, it was a natural way to reduce blood sugar for me, you also do the same, you will get good result after a month..

    Guys, you can cure any kind of Diabetes trough fasting, and having a 0 carb diet.
    Human body does not have any need for carbohydrates, stay away from carb food such as grains, bread, processed food.
    Eat once a day.
    Your body currently burns Glucose for energy, but when you start eating once a day, and do fasting,
    after 16 hours of not eating, your body will have depleted all of it's glucose, and it will start burning fat for energy.
    This is called Ketosis.
    And this is one of the best forms of energy for your body,
    Fasting is the cure to any disease.
    Also, Fasting stimulates productions of protein called Sirtuins, which are responsible for DNA repair, and key factor in Longevity.
    Your Doctor may tell you to continue taking medicines for life, but it's not true,
    these Companies and Pharmaceuticals depend on your Diabetes to stay alive, so they can make more money by selling you effective medicines.

    One of the best presentations I've ever seen on the differences between Type 1 and Type 2.  There are other types as well though, and I feel really bad that those people probably have very little if any support from others because they don't understand what they are dealing with.

    There is no need to take medications like Metformin even when you are a type 2 diabetic. Just avoid bread, cereal, pasta, rice, corn, ice cream, soft drinks, fruits, fruit juices and sweets. Eat eggs, beef, bacon,fish, chicken, pork, peanuts, butter, cheese and lots of vegetable salad instead. Take omega 3 capsules. Don't eat anything from 5pm until 7am. Verify my advice based from experience using a glucometer one hour after meal.
