Lesson 1. The two most prevalent types of diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is on the rise today. It poses a serious health hazard globally. More than 90 percent of all diabetes cases constitute Type 2 diabetes. Around 400 million people around the world have this disorder, with 28 million of them in the US alone. 

Diabetes is a disorder that is characterized by high blood sugar levels. Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are the two most prominent forms of this disorder. Let’s look at the difference between the two.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases are caused when the body’s immune system starts attacking its own healthy cells. In this case, the immune system attacks insulin-producing cells, thus causing Type 1 diabetes. 

Insulin is the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. The body of a Type 1 diabetic patient doesn’t produce insulin. So, they require external insulin shots. 

Type 2 diabetes, on the other hand, is caused when the body cells become insulin-resistant due to high insulin levels. A substandard diet rich in sugar is the primary cause of Type 2 diabetes. 

When you consume too much sugar on a regular basis, too much insulin gets produced in your body. There comes a time when your body cells get resistant to insulin, which renders the hormone useless. This obviously results in blood sugar levels shooting up. 

Insulin injections don’t resolve Type 2 diabetes, for it isn’t caused by a shortage of the hormone, rather by an excess of it. However, the medical establishment has treated both these two types of diabetes with insulin shots. This works for Type 1 diabetes, but not for Type 2, as we just discussed. 

This wrong treatment method for Type 2 worsens the condition of the patients. They often gain weight and experience other issues. 

Lesson 2. Obesity and Type 2 diabetes.

The rise of Type 2 diabetes is often linked with an increase in obesity. This was established in a 1990 research by a nutritional expert at Harvard University, Walter Willett. His studies revealed that post-puberty weight gain is a crucial contributing factor to developing Type 2 diabetes. 

In the follow-up research they carried out in 1995, Willett and his colleagues found that even small weight gains drastically increase the risk of Type 2 diabetes. Even if you gain 10 to 20 pounds of weight, there is a 90 percent jump in the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes! 

Following this, many people started to believe that consuming fewer calories would cure both obesity and Type
