This animation describes insulin resistance, an underlying cause of type 2 diabetes. It explains the roles of glucose and the hormone insulin in our body. Symptoms of diabetes are reviewed and various health complications that type 2 diabetes can lead to if left untreated.

Can a person be “cured” of Type 2 Diabetes? Dr. Sarah Hallberg provides compelling evidence that it can, and the solution is simpler than you might think.

Dr. Sarah Hallberg is the Medical Director of the Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program at IU Health Arnett, a program she created. She is board certified in both obesity medicine and internal medicine and has a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology. She has recently created what is only the second non-surgical weight loss rotation in the country for medical students. Her program has consistently exceeded national benchmarks for weight loss, and has been highly successful in reversing diabetes and other metabolic diseases. Dr. Hallberg is also the co-author of www.fitteru.us, a blog about health and wellness.

    Our pancreas creates insulin, type 2 diabetes, so i think more information regarding dysfunctional pancreas should be given, like chromium deficiency that's all we need along with a class regarding good carbohydrates and bad ones

  9. André Almada

    And I still don't understand ☹️

  13. Cherry Ding

    latest research shown,such disease is caused by too much PROCESSED food, DAIRY and ANIMAL fats. Going plant based diet reverses the problem.

    I have been a type-2 diabetic for more then 20 years. My A-1C stays around the low, to mid sixes. I am a very Disciplined person. I have not had Bread, Pasta, Rice, or potato's during that entire time. I made up a little jungle that reads like this. ("Chicken, fish, or turkey, baked not fried. simple veggies on the side. Bread, Pasta, Rice, Potato are to hate, never again regret what you ate"). The bottom line is that if we eliminate wheat and sweets, and move our body, we will not have the consequences of type-2 diabetes. Great advice! Great talk!

  15. Austine Ogar

    I honestly can’t stop thanking Dr IGUDIA on YouTube who cured my Diabetes disease permanently with his natural herbs medication which I ordered from him. Thank you so much doctor IGUDIA.

    Dr. Sarah Hallberg should be the Surgeon General! Thank you Doc! You are Priceless!

  18. Isabella

    I'm 53 and menopausal. It has served me well to Intermittent fast, and follow the no sugar, no refined carbs and grains rule. I broke the heriditary cycle of generational diabetes!!!

  19. Peter Kerr

    What happens if I go on a diet which does reverse my diabetes while I'm still taking those two big pills for it?

  20. Peter Kerr

    I went on the Doctor Bernstein diet for my cholesterol, it went to normal and I lost 30lbs in a little over a month. I spoke to Doctor Bernstein about his diet and he told me he developed it to control his own diabetes. It's almost carb free. I just had a quadruple bypass and was told I had diabetes so I'm going back on the Bernstein diet.

  21. Peter Kerr

    I was just diagnosed with type 2 at 67yrs of age. I lòoked into it a little and read that over 60% of us are now in the same boat.

  22. Amidu Jamiu

    Being recommended to Dr Itepu on YouTube was a blessing after years of suffering from herpes, I have finally been cured, thanks doc God bless you

  23. Philip Durling

    Type-2 diabetes isn't just caused by lifestyle choices. If one has Hyperthyroidism then Type-2 can be a result of that. A lady that I know had Hyperthyroidism from childhood and developed Type-2 in her 40's. Taking anti-histomine tablets for an unrelated illness has meant that her weight has dropped and her blood/sugar levels have dropped. Reducing Carbohydrates isn't always the answer. And people should not take this at being the answer in all cases.

    check out Fasting…. talk to Dr Michael Mosley… or check him out on YouTube…. Dr Mosley does the Science show for the BBC, and came out with Fasting…

  27. Andrea Simmens-Porter

    This is why making healthy food cheaper than snack food is important! Especially for people who don't have money for food… I love this video! Very informative and I can't wait to try it!

  28. Henry Cupps

    I love some of these trolls that say " no, you are not cured. Because you can't eat like you did you are still a diabetic."
    That is like saying you are never cured of the flu! Once your body has fought off the virus and it is no longer present .. you are completely cured of the flu unless you acquire the virus again.
    You are completely assured of type 2 diabetes once it's no longer present as long as you don't introduce yourself to the stimulus (bad diet) that created it in the first place. And I don't hear people talking about 0 carbs like keto, they are talking about low-carb which is just plain healthy eating.
