Episode #54 – Type 2 : Fix Blood Sugar Webinar with Dr. Scott Saunders M.D.
Join Dr. Scott Saunders and Leslie Prins as they discuss Type 2 Diabetes.[6:30] Today’s discussion: What is Type 2? How did I get this? What do I do about it?
[7:00] Type 2 diabetes vs. Type 1. What is the difference?
Type 1 Diabetes -people died of starvation before insulin was discovered.
The issue is “not enough” energy.
[9:50] If your pancreas is not making enough insulin, you need shots.
[10:00] Diabetes means “peeing to much”. There were 2 types in the old days. melatus & insipidus.
[12:40] In Type 2, you have too much. You need less, and especially less sugar.
[13:40] What do you do?
1. Exercise. It’s really important for using sugar, but you cannot lose fat by exercising.
[15:10] in order to lose one pound of fat per day, the average person would have to run one marathon per day, without eating. That’s the only way to lose weight with exercise.
[21:20] People are fat because they eat too much, not because they don’t workout. It’s all about food.
[21: 50] Type 2 is when cells are bloated with sugar. Why would we add more insulin? That would be a horrible thing to do and that’s what taught in medical school. Type 1 you need more insulin and you need to eat. With Type 2 you need less, in fact zero is better. This is completely opposite of what is taught.
23:10 Doctors will tell you that you can eat as much sugar as you want, just as long as you get more insulin to keep your blood sugar down. It’s completely wrong.
[24:25] The Diabetes Solution Kit talks about how to get that bloating down, by getting that sugar out of your diet. You will then start getting your blood sugar lowered and you will become sensitive to insulin again.
[25:00] 20 grams of net carbs per day, in phase one of the Diabetes Solution Kit.
[29:30] We have to get carbs lowered until your blood sugar is consistently in the 70-90 range, or the 4-5 range for those in Canada or Europe. This is an indicator that your cells are opening back up, and you’re using the energy out of those cells.
