First thing is that you should not start somebody on insulin until you know how much insulin is already in their blood stream.
You have to know the insulin level. If you have a high insulin level already, which you probably do, giving you more insulin is going to do nothing more than make you fat.
Insulin not only decreases blood sugar, but it also forces triglycerides into fat cells that surround your gut.
If cells are insulin resistant, approach therapeutically from that direction. You may say, “Well, they had me on metformin, but it was not strong enough.” The issue is not Glucophage deficiency.
The issue is often a deficiency in chromium and vanadium, because these minerals are necessary for insulin to work. If you are not taking these things in your diet or if you are not absorbing them from your food, you will develop diabetes. First thing that happens is insulin level goes up, blood sugar stays the same.
Then the blood sugar goes up, and people go “Ooh, ooh, ooh, we have diabetes here.” No. You had diabetes for probably 10 years. The approach is to make the cells more sensitive, and what I use is vanadium sulfate and chromium polynicotinate, and then to that, I will add green tea extract. What this does, is it makes the cell more sensitive. We are going to try to get you off of that insulin, because it is going to fatten you, which makes everything worse.
You can add a few other odds and ends to it that make a difference. You can add cinnamon and honey, but you really have to do it with green tea extract and the minerals. Everything after that is polishing the apple.[/testimonial][/testimonials]
