Can a person be "cured" of Type 2 Diabetes? Dr. Sarah Hallberg provides compelling evidence that it can, and the solution is simpler than you might think.
Dr. Sarah Hallberg is the Medical Director of the Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program at IU Health Arnett, a program she created. She is board certified in both obesity medicine and internal medicine and has a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology. She has recently created what is only the second non-surgical weight loss rotation in the country for medical students. Her program has consistently exceeded national benchmarks for weight loss, and has been highly successful in reversing diabetes and other metabolic diseases. Dr. Hallberg is also the co-author of www.fitteru.us, a blog about health and wellness.

Did not like the presenter. I scrolled her up and just listened to the presentation information. Her diet said no grains, no potatoes, no sugar. I think that not having sugar would push the need for insulin down. I think that more needs to be done along these diet lines before we can say that this is a Type 2 Diabetes "cure". If it was as simple as the presenter says back in 2015 then every body would be cured of Type 2 Diabetes by now in 2018.
I just got diagnosed with diabetes. I’m not overweight and it’s a genetic thing. I’ve spent days doing research and I really feel like the ADA, Food, Drug industries work in a loop. I know it’s complete speculation but it truly looks like a Diabetes factory to get 500 to 1100.00 bucks from single insulin prescriptions. I immediately quit smoking and have changed eating habits dramatically but I am going to try this woman’s way of doing things. Having this scares me and i see too many people with horrible conditions because of it.
The Mastering Diabetes people get the same results cutting out process foods , sugars, all meats and very low on fats. They eat whole foods : Plenty of fruits and vegetables, some whole grains. They use stuff like hemp protein and flax seeds for omega -3's.
the stop sign doesn't work...but if you know how many calories you should eat and how many there are in what you are eating you can make a consciouss decision to stop. in an hour you'll get hungry again...but if you inform yourself about this and either have a light, healthy snack or just wait it out you can manage at least some of the time. Obese people are addicts and saying it's hormonal is like saying coke addiction is "neurochemical". It's true, but it doesn't make it acceptable
everyone is talking about food,but you also have to move with diabetes. at least 30 minutes to an hour 4 to 6 times a week exercising. we don't use our bodies anymore . especially in America. kids barely play outside now.its Xbox /Playstation generation. no one is talking about the dying beta cells and how the right kind of weight-loss can help.use your muscles, eat a lot of leafy green and cruciferous vegetables. avoid all processed foods.cook your own foods.and get 7 hours of quality sleep.
I am in great mental stress as I started out reading through this “amazing fivu com” (Google it) mainly because my A1c was 11.5% and my blood glucose level has soared to Three hundred. The figures was 2 months ago. I made sure that I followed everything from “amazing fivu com” (Google it). And that did it. I was very delighted concerning the fact that I managed to lower my average PP sugar level to 140.
Where is she getting fiber in her low carb diet? Fiber is what makes you feel full and aids in digestive health. And, for that matter, other vitamins and minerals that are only found in carbohydrate containing foods, like fruits. Carbohydrates, on a biochemical level, also provide the building blocks for those non-essential amino acids that our body produces on it's own. They are the primary source of energy for our body and without carbs, our body would break down it's own muscles to provide energy.
Insulin also provides a healthy hormone cycle in the body. Insulin and Growth Hormone are inversely related. So if insulin is never turned on, growth hormone is never turned off which provides it's own set of dangers.
hey ,if anyone else needs to find out about diabetes and diet try Jadonite Proven Diabetes Buddy (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my friend got great success with it.
It sounds like she is misrepresenting what doctors tell their patients. Or maybe my particular experience has been fortunately very different. I have never been told that I have to eat carbs. Everything I have been told about carbs is that I need to reduce them as much as is practical. The one thing that she doesn't seem to be mentioning is insulin. If you are diabetic and taking insulin, there is a danger of hypoglycemia. I am fortunate enough to not need insulin at this time and my doctor isn't pushing it. I am able to maintain a reasonable blood glucose level through diet and moderate exercise. I will try to finish this video, but I am somewhat skeptical at this point.
Hey, guys! I'm doing an awesome T1D giveaway on my instagram! All you have to do is follow me and you're automatically entered! Giveaway includes: Pump peelz, snacks, diabetes merch, and more! I plan on fully customizing to the individual. So, follow me! @courtni_t1d
She is correct up to a point, but she is blatantly wrong when she says we don't need carbs. Try running, cycling or doing a HIIT workout on a diet of zero to minimal carbs. You will crash, that is fact. An extreme low carb diet may initially help a diabetic to lower their blood sugar, but over time, it will be harder and harder to maintain. Dr. Neal Barnard cites studies that show a vegan diet with no limit on carbs reverses diabetes.
There is a twenty year old research paper that might be interesting to anyone who wants to know more about the impact of different and very specific foods on insulin production. The paper is listed here:
An insulin index of foods: the insulin demand generated by 1000-kJ portions of common foods
Susanne HA Holt, Janette C Brand Miller, and Peter Petocz, Am J Clin Nutr 1997; 66:1264 - 76.
I take issue with this purely for the fact that a plant based whole foods diet has also been proven to reverse type 2 diabetes, within anywhere from 2 weeks to a month in most cases.
This flies in the face of her no carb advice because things like bananas, apples, strawberries etc all have carbs in. In fact just 1 of her mushrooms is 65% of calories from carbs! So it's less about avoiding sugar and carbs, and more about avoiding refined versions of those things.
It's when carbs, sugar & fats are refined that we have issues, because the fibre content is no longer there. It's the same reason when you have fruit juices that those spike your blood sugar, because the fibre isn't there to help slow the absorption of those nutrients.
This is the issue!
This is just another "let's try to get away with being lazy" diet fad. Low carb is a gout trigger, plus you miss out on many of the best foods. Muscle tissue increases insulin sensitivity. People are so insulin resistant nowadays because we just sit around all day looking at screens and don't ever build any muscle. Instead of giving up foods you like for the rest of your life and still only be half as healthy as you could be, get off the couch and pick up a barbell a couple times a week, that's all it takes. You'll not only get healthier according to some number on a blood test, you'll feel amazing and have tons of energy. I reversed insulin resistance and I eat pizza, ice cream, and sweet and sour chicken all the time, plus cereal for breakfast every day. The sad deprivation diet fad she's trying to sell here is not required.
I would love to know why over 4.5 k dislikes ?!!
As someone with type 2 diabetes I can undoubtedly attest that this information is 100 percent spot on !
I went low carb about 2 months ago and now have no need for my diabetes medicine, I stopped taking them a month ago !
I feel absolutely great and I am losing weight !
I also exercise 4 days on , 1 day off rotation.
Never going back to carbs again !
I have been searching for recipes to work for my family. My husband had Type 2 diabetes. I have PCOS/pre-diabetes. Our kids are 13 & 15. I feel that the Keto lifestyle would greatly improve the lives of my family members! I’ll be posting recipes, etc. on my IG acct @poshygolden1
I don't know about anyone else but I am a type II diabetic and from the get go I was told to drastically reduce my carb intake and I was never told to eat a specific amount but to reduce, reduce, reduce. None of my doctors nor endocrinologists that I have seen have EVER told me to have a certain amount of minimum carbs but they have ALWAYS said the less the better. It is obvious to me that Sarah Hallberg has never spoken to a nutritionist or gone to a diabetic clinic. They do not recommend any level of sugars or carbs or insulin but teach that lowering sugar and carb intake AND weight loss will need you to lower your insulin. They recommend you test you blood ATLEAST 3 times/day and adjust accordingly. Oh this is about the ADA, I am in Canada with the poor quality medicare system? :P
My dad quit eating carbs and still is diabetic. He is 6'11" and weighs 160lbs... He is active with cutting wood for his heat in the winter, he gardens, cuts grass, does household chores... Still diabetic.
How to cure type 2 diabetes: walk 45 minutes per day briskly in the evening or late night. That's it. This was recommended by Dr. Memet Oz in a 2007 in a one-pager in men's lifestyle magazine. My blood sugar was off the charts when I read this article when it was published. I started walking at least 30 minutes per night every night. Numbness in the extremities: gone! Hypertension: gone! Fitness level: up. Muscle tone: up. The advice that I just wrote saved my life. It can save yours. Don't cut things out of your diet. Ad walking to your life. That's it.
You don't have to mess with your diet if you *walk* as written above. Take it from me.
The average US woman now weighs as much as a normal man did in 1960. about 165 pounds. No its not a disease, its being lazy, its not caring, its costing me healthcare dollars. Obesity is unhealthy, and a disease didn't change this weight issue. Its being lazy, eating processed foods. And you making excuses for the 90% of obese people is a disservice to their health. 10% have a legit excuse for obesity, the other 90% is all diet and exercise.
Love it , Not a tree hugger here , normal Guy , I went on the American Diabetes Association , the bulk of their funding come from drug manufacturer and their distributors , most of their "heath" show are sponsored by the same , in short without the drug Co there would be no Association , this is far more than a conflict of interest . One has to laugh please go to their web site , they state a study has been conducted , it might be possible to eliminate Diabetes , not an encouraging sentence , they continue on to state a study was done on 30 patients ...... Were they afraid it might work and loose funding ? You be the Judge . But they do ask you to become a sponsor ....... Sound more like a late a cheap infomercial
I would like to see her explain why diabetes is not common in asian countries.. I think carbs are not the problem the asians eat alot of carbs and most of them are skinny so technically it invalidates what she is claiming . perhaps its the type of carbs you consume or possibly you need to eat carbs with fats and proteins. You need all of them together for the body to properly utilize them.. Or lack of exercise might be the main problem..
I have some food for thought, for all those people flooding this comments section with cries of "This is no cure! This is non-sustainable!". Do you have so little faith in your fellow human beings that you'd deny them a solution, purely because by your estimation, they don't have the self-discipline to handle it? There are videos on YouTube that lay out, completely free, detailed plans for managing your finances in a way that will help you get out of debt and pay off your mortgage early. Do you troll the comments section of these videos trying to discredit their channels, and telling people they should turn their eyes away .. there's nothing to see here .. this isn't a solution ..No one has the self-discipline to do that! it's NON-SUSTAINABLE? Let's imagine you had stage 4 cancer, and half your family and friends also had it. You have a brother and sister? One of them has stage 4 cancer. A mom and a dad? One of them has stage 4 cancer, as does half of everyone you know. Suddenly a pill shows up .. completely legitimate... and someone on YouTube is telling people about it. The pill is completely FREE, and it doesn't "cure" cancer, but it completely removes all of cancer's threat. But the catch is, you have to take it every hour, on the hour, for the rest of your life. Would you deny yourself this option, and do your best to discredit the people promoting it, and tell your friends and relatives, your mother, your sister, to look away? Don't look at that video! That's not a solution to stage 4 cancer! You have to take one of those free pills every hour??! No one can do that! That's NON-SUSTAINABLE. Eating low-carb is not a cure for diabetes, but it takes away the symptoms and the threat of diabetes. Peeing every 10 minutes? Fixed. Leg cramps every half hour during the night, waking you up in excruciating pain? Fixed. Deteriorating, wacky, all-over-the-map eyesight? Fixed. The looming threat of future limb amputations? Fixed. Is the diabetes gone? Cured? No. If you go back to eating fast food three times a day, the symptoms and threats will all return. But is the negative impact of diabetes almost completely gone from my life? Yes. It takes discipline, self-education, patience .. but does that mean it's NON-SUSTAINABLE and we should talk people out of doing it, because they'll only give up at some point, because people are weak? I say, if a person is ready to make a change in their life, there's nothing they can't do, and keep doing. Let them decide what's sustainable for them.
Simple but so important. My doc told me last year I was pre type 2 and to cut down on sugary food and drink, I am vegan and do not ever have sugary drinks and don’t even eat much sugar, I don’t have a sweet tooth. He did not mention carbs. And, no I am not obese, hardly overweight at all, maybe like five or six pounds. But I love pasta, rice, bread and potatoes!
Broccoli is 80% carbohydrates. Who thinks eating broccoli causes insulin resistance or diabetes? The video is a good example of why doctors should learn about nutrition in medical schools. The best diet for reversing diabetes is a whole-food, plant-based diet!
Does this mean no more nice hot oatmeal? No more peanut butter sandwiches? Are you kidding me? God damn it. I know I shouldn't swear but when does it end? I gave up booze and cigarettes and now I have to what, eat grass in the morning? For crying out loud! No more doughnuts? Now I suppose I have to look up what a no-carb diet looks like. Maybe its okay to gnaw on tree bark.

I went from 700 units of insulin a day to 0 in 5 days doing this. My labs are all normal or better. The ADA are wolves in sheep's clothing. Type II Diabetes is reversable. If your Doctor does not know this and how to do it, find another Doctor. The ADA takes tainted money. Carbs are not needed.
Obesity as a hormonal disease is a chicken-egg situation. It's usually an unhealthy lifestyle that disrupts the hormones (though some other diseases, like PCOS, can also be the cause -- but this is relatively uncommon). Hormonal imbalance then triggers all kinds of madness in the body, including fatigue, stress, lower metabloism, etc. Many people eat as a coping mechanism for this stress and fatigue. So, obesity IS a result of bad habits and choices and it CAN be a difficult thing to correct and cure. The system (medical, political, and educational insititutions) ARE corrupt and set us up to fail (like the dairy board getting a say in the health food guide in Canada -- conflict of interest, right there). A whole food, plant based diet and some exercise is all you need to cure most preventable diseases, including obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, and heart disease. Sugar is not bad for you, nor does it cause disease -- processed and refined foods are bad, as are animal products (which many Keto consume a lot of).
no potatoes? wtf? i eat nothing but healthy carbs like sweet potatoes brown rice and tons of healthy grains, my blood result were amazing. population that eat low meat and high healthy carbs never experienced diabetes. look up the okinawa population diet in the 1900s they ate nothing but healthy carbs and were the longest living population recorded.
You can't say never about what can cause diabetes. Prolonged consumption of high carb foods ( even healthy ones)will lead to diabetes in some cases. Lowest risk of which groups? Carnivores, pescaterians, low carbers. Add studies to back up this claim.
I'm not saying "we should". I'm saying that some people should limit carbs if it effects their blood glucose numbers in a negative way. If people eat carbs and not have a blood spike then continue but the majority of people overeat carbs especially highly processed ones. The same can be said of people who go low-carb and never experience diabetes.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
