    Thank you for this lecture. This lecture is a comprehensive look at glycolysis/burning of glucose and how glucose management impacts the metabolism for those with Diabetes and High blood pressure. This lecture only lightly touches on the impacts of fats and the metabolism's burning of fats/ketones/triglycerides – aka ketosis. The Metabolism of fats is an important dietary component to a lifestyle intervention for diabetes. Many diabetics and those who are overweight/obese store their excess glucose as fats aka lipids in adipose/fat cells. When the metabolism is dominated by high levels of insulin – the insulin tells adipose tissue to store excess glucose as lipids/fats. There are two types of adipose tissue … subcutaneous which is located under the skin and along side the muscle/joint to protect them from impact AND visceral which located around the vital organs to protect them from impact. Over active Subcutaneous fat won't kill you but when overactive Visceral fat gets too big, these fat cells can crush the vital organs and kill you. Non Alcohol Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) is an example of Visceral Fat around the liver that can kill a person. The medical solution to NAFLD is a dietary one which restricts all possible carbohydrate sources including protein. Just high dietary intake of glucose may not be enough to alter the insulin levels. High Cortisol levels will trigger hight Insulin level – under high stress cortisol levels are increase to burn glucose so the body can act quickly. Glucose burns quickly but Ketones/fats burn slowly … burning ketones when you sleep is not a problem but the burning ketones when you are awake requires a physically fit body because burning fats produce energy more slowly. NAFLD is one of the possible common negative outcomes of Type 2 Diabetes along with renal failure. To learn about how to lose excess weight which is stored as fat – a lecture needs to be focused on ketosis and the burning of fats via getting the adipose tissue to excrete lipids to burn as fat is needed. it's complicated – but in order for the metabolism to burn fats – insulin levels must be low so ketosis can occur… the easiest way to get there not to eat 4 hours before you sleep AND to sleep for longer than 8 hours . .Note that the body comes normally with a fix number of adipose cells and depending on your fat storage needs … adipose cells increase and decrease in size to hold lipids/fats. Each adipose cell has a maximum capacity to store lipids – there is an upper limit to how much lipid each fat cell can hold. Each body has max number of fat cells before it cannot hold anymore fat/lipids – which is genetically – epigenetically determined at birth (see the WW2 Dutch Famine Study). This is really a complex subject ….which is why people have problems with it.

    Nice video, I use Libre and Blucon and love them. The alarms are nice and are loud enough to wake me up. You can adjust your BG ranges to whatever you want. The best part of blucon is I can calibrate it for higher accuracy!


    Brilliant lecture for anyone who wants to understand diabetes. Exceptionally informative for people who want to know how make better healthcare decisions about nutritional management of diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Excellently presented. Thank you.

    The restaurants aday, need to cook food relative to the needs of people, and not merely for profit. May ther be more vegan and low carb food.

    Based on randomized double blind studies it is polyunsaturated fats that are linked to cardiovascular disease. Saturated fats are neutral with protection for stroke.

    "2:22" Excellent Video clip! thanks, I would love your opinion. I have been researching "health tips for diabetes" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you tried Diyenry Subjective Dominance ?

    It is a good one of a kind product for reversing diabetes without the hard work. Ive heard some great things about it and my work buddy got cool success with it.

    This video is garbage advice.

    The only way that I stopped my insatiable hunger, lost the weight, and am maintaining the weight loss is by using keto. In my case keto is 20 or fewer grams of carbohydrates per day.

    The liver uses gluconeogenesis to create all the glucose that the body needs. Other body parts use "endogenous fructose production" to create all the fructose that the body needs.

    I strongly disagree with the negative comments on this video. The information provided is as accurate as current science allows. Just because there are a bunch of quacks on the Internet who claim otherwise, doesn't make this information incorrect.

    Very unprofessional and disappointing…

  12. gendo1kar1

    Nice outdated info, someday maybe they can get beyond research paid for by C&H sugar. Please look up how insulin, and insulin resistance work.

  13. Savvylicious

    Look up Virta Health for latest success research and nutrition protocol. Not the advice of this video.

    And they keep marching on,.. historical nonsense…….. Most people know this is akin to gravity working only when you look down, Beep, Beep… Sugar is linked to heart disease, not saturated fat. Seriously, this is advice is dangerous and damaging, based on, well, nothing really that stands up to physiology and biochem, and quite frankly scary that "this" is still being put out as medical and nutritional best advice when in fact it is terrible.

    this advice is complete old school garbage. i cured my diabetes by simply cutting out all sugars & refined carbs. restrict your carb intake to real vegetables. no processed fake food. this is not that hard people. Dr. Atkins figured this out long ago. I can't believe the disease management establishment continues to spew this nonsense.

    What actually fat does bad regarding diabetes?
