Type 2 diabetes
Did you know that type 2 diabetes is caused by insulin resistance and that insulin resistance is caused by fats inside muscle cells?
There are at least four components involved with glucose entering the cell; insulin, glucose, insulin receptors, and the cell. The insulin works like a key and the insulin receptor is like a lock. When insulin is inserted into the lock the door is opened and glucose comes in. Then the cell has the fuel it needs. If the sugar can’t come in, it remains in the blood and wreaks havoc.
Somehow, when there are too many lipids (fats) in a cell the insulin receptors don’t work well enough to let enough glucose in. I don’t know if the fats act like gum and the key doesn’t fit or if the cell is in control and because it is already overloaded with calories it doesn’t let any more in.
It has been proven and demonstrated in countless individuals that the solution is to stop eating fats. All animal products contain a lot of fat. Vegetable oils taken from plants are just fats. So a diet without animal products and with no added oil is the best solution to diabetes. The fiber in plant adds another very valuable tool to help reverse diabetes.
