How to cure type 2 diabetes – without medication | Diabetes | The Guardian (Me: I walked away from type 2 – it can be done)

One of Taylor’s most important new discoveries is that everyone has their own fat threshold: an individual level of tolerance for levels of fat in the body. “It’s a personal thing. It’s nothing to do with the sort of information that’s often provided about obesity, which is about average BMI and what the population is doing. The bottom line is, a person will develop type 2 diabetes when they’ve become too heavy for their own body. It doesn’t matter if their BMI is within the ‘normal’ range. They’ve crossed their personal threshold and become unhealthy.”

He is currently in the middle of research to find out whether there’s any way of discovering, via a blood test, when people are heading into this dangerous territory and their fat cells are putting out what he describes as “distress signals”.

What we do know already is that our bodies start to have trouble controlling blood sugar when fat can no longer be stored safely under the skin and it spills over into the liver and then the pancreas. If these organs get clogged with fat, they stop functioning properly and that is when you develop type 2 diabetes.

    1. I got diagnosed, did not want to take medication for life. Changed diet – no added salt or sugar and started walking. Lost 35 pounds in 4 months and doctor called me and said stop taking medication or I’ll have to treat you for low blood sugar. 22 years ago.

    2. In 14 months I lost 105 pounds and kept it off – I had ballooned up the previous three years – lol – my normal diet now is pretty boring but it works for me.

    3. He just needs to just walk – start easy and work up to 3 miles a day in a couple of months or so and then keep it up.

    4. Yes! I know. It’s getting into the habit of it that’s the problem, I know consistency is key (for me too, though I am not diabetic!)
