Dr. Ali’s Diabetes Course – Part 1: The Basics of Diabetes
Majid Ali, M.D.
The Basics of Diabetes — My 1958 View of the Disease
Reversing diabetes was not a part of medical consciousness then.
Diabetes was a “sugar disease” then in which blood sugar levels were high due to deficiency of the hormone insulin produced by the pancreas, a gland found in the upper abdomen behind the stomach. I was taught diabetes causes loss of weight, weakness, increased hunger, increased thirst, and frequent urination.
If left untreated, diabetes causes many complications, including brain fog, confusion, tremors (ketoacidoss), muscle twitching, coma, and death. Less acute complications include foot ulcers, nerve injury (neuropathy), eye damage (retnopathy) kidney failure, stroke, and heart disease.
