Most doctors only treat the symptoms. It's like a band-aid approach. Just putting on a band-aid and not treating the infection underneath.
Let me explain what I mean…
Let's take a donut. If you eat a donut and you don't have blood sugar problems, insulin comes in and mops up that sugar from your bloodstream.
I can remember one time when I was going to consult with a doctor. And I heard the doctor say, "your blood sugar is too high, it's 214."
And the patient said, "But I just ate."
If your pancreas is working the right way, your blood sugar should not change that much. It shouldn't go too high.
The main problem here is that insulin in your body isn't doing its job. There are a number of things that are going on behind the scenes.
So the first step is to take the load off of the pancreas which makes insulin. Because after a donut in type 2 diabetes, it will take longer for insulin to come in and mop up that extra sugar from your bloodstream.
By lightening the load on your pancreas, over time you can help to save and improve blood sugar control. In the heat of the battle, your pancreas can’t handle too much sugar in the bloodstream when you’re type 2 diabetic.
I know this sounds simple. But it’s more to it than this. And it all can get overwhelming.
And not many people know how to go about “taking a load off of their pancreas” and effectively controlling type 2 diabetes.
Not to mention, if this is done the wrong way it can really backfire.
