Fat causes Type-2 Diabetes

Diabetes Type-2 is not a disease of sugar but rather one of fat. We measure and even define diabetes by the level of sugar in the blood when it is only the messenger. The message being something is stopping the sugar from getting into the cell and being metabolised to produce the energy needed to survive and thrive. You can control the sugar all you want but unless you can get it into the cell and into the mitochondria where it is used as energy, the problem will persist and get worse. So what then is stopping the sugar from getting into the cell?

Fat is the single most important factor in the development of diabetes Type-2. We have not only learnt to extract fats from all types of plants and how to grow bigger fatter animals but we have also learnt how to put fat in every meal. And unfortunately in most cases it is the wrong type of fat, saturated fat, vegetable oils (omega 6) and trans fatty acids. The saturated fats (found in animal products) and trans fats literally change the physical structure of the membrane around all our cells. The membrane is normally like a liquid crystal, dynamic, mobile and is the interface between the cell and outside environment. It communicates with the genes to direct the cell to do things. If the membrane is impeded then so is the normal function of the cell, including its ability to take in sugar in the form of glucose.

The second aspect is that fat accumulating in the cell in the form of intramyocellular fat, shuts down the development of the mitochondria (the cells powerhouse) so you can’t burn up energy. People with insulin resistance (prediabetes) have more intramyocellular fat in the cell and less mitochondria to burn up the energy. The intramyocellular fat also shuts off the intracellular signalling of insulin which then means the sugar begins to accumulate in the blood because it can’t get into the cell. Interestingly, people put on a very high fat diet took only a few days to accumulate the intramyocellular fat. Fortunately it appears to only take a few days to start to reduce the levels in the cells in people on a fat free diet.
If you want to learn more and how to cure, yes cure, diabetes Type 2, I strongly suggest you read and implement the book “There is a cure for diabetes” by Gabriel Cousens.

  1. This all assumes you still choose to use sugar for your energy source. The body is perfectly capable of running on fat instead, but that would heresy for the medical profession to admit and/or recommend...

    Cut the bad carbs/processed foods out of our diet and your blood sugar levels calm down, you lose weight and diabetes can become a thing of the past, without having to live the life of a fasting monk.

    It's excess SUGAR in our food that mostly causes obesity, not excess fat. Not that I'm recommending a diet of fat and butter alone - just eating healthy foods (including some meat/fish) without unhealthy carbs.

    There's PLENTY of medical evidence to support this, but I guess the medical industry is more scared of looking bad after all these years of scaremongering us about fat, when they should have been tackling sugar/bad carbs...

  4. Dr Dingle, everything we hear from the mainstream about saturated fats has been wrong, is this perhaps another case of unfairly implicating SFA's?

  6. The type and amount of saturated fat we consume as well as all the other fats is very different from what we evolved with. wild game was low fat and high omega 3 along witht he saturated fat. The diabetes cure works on eliminaing just about all fats except omega 3. We just have too many of them. the worst culprit is the vegetable oils and transfats. It has only been the last 50 years we could extract all these fats and spead it on every meal. Before that fat in the diet was relatively rare for the hunter fisher gatherer.
    i will be putting the diabetes cure on this blog over the next few weeks.

  7. OK, but do you think the author of that article has point when she mentions-

    "Think of it this way: type-2 diabetes is a new disease, one that has now reached epidemic proportions. Type-2 diabetes did not exist 100 years ago when our diets were very rich in saturated fat"

    Is that a statistically accurate comment she is making there?

  10. I am doing a brief talk about oils and trans-fats on the ABC program "Can We Help" Oils are great but the heating of oil is dangerous. Olive oil is best consumed cold. The heating of oil will da-nature the structure of the oil and creates a trans-fat or damaging fat. Try not to cook with oil if you can avoid it and just add it cold to salads and smoothies.

  11. You can take CoQ10 to help with the muscle related pain of cholesterol lowering medication. Ultimately the best thing is to address your environment, diet, lifestyle and get your cholesterol to healthy levels so you can come off the medication or negotiate with your health care provider. Otherwise get a second opinion on your health care from another GP or Naturopath.

  12. Many people are unaware how diabetes is caused. Diabetes occurs when pancreas does not secrete enough of the hormone insulin. The level of glucose increases the body. There are many causes of diabetes like some virus infection, exposure to food-borne chemical toxins, obesity, certain medicines like alloxan,
    streptozocin, and thiazide. Diabetes is heredity in nature. For more details refer what causes diabetes

  15. My father was insulin dependant with type-2 diabetes for seven years. He found a book by another doctor that basically said the same thing Dr. Dingle is saying here... After understanding how the body processes different food elements, he started eating right, lost 150 lbs, and no longer needs ANY insulin. His HBA1C levels are in the low to mid 5s, and the highest his blood sugar has been in the last two years was about 140.

    I do not have diabetes, but I saw him lose all that weight and decided to try it for myself. I started January 1st of this year (2010) and was over 300 lbs, now I'm down to 180 (after 9 months) which is close to what I should be... And I no longer have to worry about getting type-2 diabetes!

    And, you don't have to fast like a monk, that's a misconception. I still eat large portions, but by eating mostly carbs instead of fats, I'm taking in way less calories than I used to (1 gram of carbohydrate has 3 calories, whereas 1 gram of fat has 9 calories). As I lost weight, I became hungry less often because my body was not struggling to provide my cells with what they need -- suddenly all the energy I was consuming was able to be used by my body easily, and my hunger response wasn't being triggered ALL the time. I used to feel hungry, even after eating and having a bloated belly! I started feeling great and having more energy... I've been able to accomplish more in my life than ever before, and I do it without the aches and pains in my knees and my lower back.

    Anyone who wants to thumb their nose at this fact is just making excuses for killing themselves, much like those that are addicted to cigarettes and alcohol.

    Live healthy, eat right! It's the key to life and feeling good.

  16. Dr. Dingle is right on. To anonymous, Of course cut out processed foods that are high in sugar. Large quantities of refined sugar that can't be processed are simply converted to fat. The excess fat from this activity along with the high consumption of fat clogs the body so the blood sugar regulation by the body is impeded. Simplify your foods. Get as natural as possible. Its not easy in beginning but the
    rewards are well worth it. If you're relatively healthy you can go off once in a while. If you are facing disease symptoms then recognize you must change bad eating habits. Medication based solutions are not solutions. They palliate symptoms without removing cause and they cause problems elsewhere in the body. Bite the bullet and simply eat fresh fruits, vegetables and moderate grains. If you must use condiments, use sparingly. Watch your health miraculously return as you simply eat the diet your body was designed to eat. And of course exercise.
