I simply don't agree with your link. I've kept my blood sugar levels well within the normal range for more than three months at a time and have been doing this most of the time for well over six years and I am still diabetic. The pancreas does not heal that way. Once you have Type II - it sticks. Nobody at your link can go back to eating cake, candy or ice cream without their Type II blood sugar levels being out of control.
In fact in your earlier post which also claimed the paleo diet cured diabetes at
the individual claiming to be cured by the paleo diet was actually in the advanced stages of Type II with a blood sugar reading of 62. Anything under 70 is hypoglycemic and that individual is setting himself up for a diabetic coma also known as insulin shock which results in death. That individual doesn't know what on earth he is dealing with and is in fact endangering himself.
"A blood glucose level of 62 mg/dL or lower attained from either the Fasting Plasma (FPG) or Random Glucose Tests generally indicates hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia is a condition that occurs when the body's blood sugar drops too low. If you're experiencing consistent low glucose levels at or near 62 mg/dL, you should consult with your physician."
Am not saying that the paleo diet doesn't benefit Type II but from what you've posted so far it hasn't proved anything yet.
There is no known cure for diabetes. If there were then a "former" diabetic could return to eating candy and other sweets without any spike in their blood sugar levels. Also the links that you have provided regarding paleo diet "cures" post no a1c tests. The a1c test is a measure of the amount of glucose that your cells have absorbed over the preceding three months and anything under 6.0 is "normal." Mine has been there many times yet I'm still diabetic. (I have never taken medical supplements to control my diabetes, I do it with diet alone.) If the folks on your links have an aversion to medical care there are many places on-line where you can purchase the a1c test kits.
Added to that, the guy who had a blood sugar reading of 62 is just the opposite of cured by the paelo diet - he is killing himself.
You don't understand Type II diabetes. People with a completely normal pancreas can still have Type II diabetes - it's not all about the pancreas. The body cells of some people have become resistant to insulin and they are Type II with a normal pancreas.
Unlike people with type 1 diabetes, people with type 2 diabetes produce insulin; however, either their pancreas does not produce enough insulin or the body cannot use the insulin adequately. This is called insulin resistance. When there isn't enough insulin or the insulin is not used as it should be, glucose (sugar) can't get into the body's cells. When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, the body's cells are not able to function properly. Other problems associated with the buildup of glucose in the blood include......
The very best information on how to control diabetes - Type I or Type II is in the book "Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution: The Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Blood Sugars." Bernstein is a Type I now in his 70s and is the father of home blood glucose testing. It was his work with home testing that has led to the home testing devices that we now have. When the medical community wouldn't accept his own personal research regarding the foods that cause diabetes, he at the age of about 45 went to med school and became a doctor and then pressed the medical community to finally accept his findings - though many doctors still push the American Diabetic Association diet which will kill you. Bernstein's diet is 3 carbohydrates per meal with no limit on fat, plus a lot of exercise. It is difficult to follow and I have fallen off several times - particularly during the holidays, but I always manage to get back with the program and gain control. His diet is very similar to what my medical clinic recommends (15 grams of carbos per meal) so he isn't alone in what he is teaching.
Finally, each individual is completely different. I love steel cut oats but eating a small bowl for breakfast without milk or any other additives raises my blood sugar level to 185 after two hours. Another person I know can eat the same thing with an after meal reading of 85. The clue to any individual's control of their diabetes is test, test, test, and more testing until you understand what you can and cannot eat because you are unique. High protein is the only way to go if you wish to control the disease and "complex" carbohydrates still turn to sugar in your stomach.
"If you wish to worship your own diabetes illness... that's your decision......."
I don't worship my diabetes. I have it under control. Have had it under control with diet for more than six years. You are the one who has made your own golden idol, the Paleo Diet.
"Diabetes is PRETTY EASY to cure. It's your MIND that needs a make over."
Then why haven't you posted any testimonials of people who have been cured?
When you recognize yourself as the bright eternal spirit that you and everyone else on the Planet are, you will recognize that the mind cures nothing. The mind is a body function. It is you as spirit - separate from your body, that heals and cures.
You are sure one happy camper. Have a beautiful eternity because that's what you are experiencing right at this moment in time.
You haven't posted any cures. Period. I do agree that having Type II "under control" is not only possible, but highly probable with a high protein diet - something that I've posted as my control - on this thread as well. Control is not the same as a cure and you haven't posted any cures where people who were diagnosed diabetic can return to eating even as much as one Snickers bar without a spike. Post that kind of a cure!
Now - I want you to be very honest - have you since October 31st 2011 at 12:00 am until January 1st 2012 at 12:00 midnight had one or more food items other those that you are falsely calling the "Paleo Diet?" That means no alcohol, no grain or other processed food item, no manufactured sweets or anything else? (My double martinis with a couple of olives are within my diet restrictions. They are very low carb.)
Remember that not only are eye balls, brains, lips, intestines (uncleaned, still with the original contents), bung holes, deer droppings/poop all a part of the real Inuit/Paleo Diet. Have you had any of that?
Had my usual sausage and eggs breakfast this morning and my blood sugar level exactly two hours later was 88. I've had my blood sugar under control on this high protein diet for many years - except when I do fall off. Holidays, birthdays, family gatherings are difficult to control so I generally don't even try. Yet I can quickly climb back on my diet and get right back with the program and control my blood sugar. I'll bet you that 98% of those who claim to be on the Paleo Diet fall off like I do, including yourself.
I have never ever had any medication during my years of Type II though I've tried many months of bitter melon, Essiac Tea and other alternative products which claim to control blood sugar levels but with no positive results for me.
Those on this diet "Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution: The Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Blood Sugars" are achieving normal sugar levels and it is even higher protein than the false Paleo Diet. The Type I diabetic who wrote this book wasn't a doctor when he made his discovery, he was an engineer. So he too is practicing an alternative medical program as am I.
