Dr. Ali’s Diabetes Course – Part II

Majid Ali, M.D

Shifting Focus From Sugar to Insulin For Preventing and Reversing Type 2 Diabetes


Question: What is the commonest reason for delay in diabetes diagnosis?

Answer: Failure to do 3-hour blood insulin test.


Question: What is the commonest reason for failing to reverse diabetes?

 Answer:        Failure to do 3-hour blood insulin test.


Question: Is Fasting Blood Sugar (Glucose) Test Reliable for Screening for Diabetes?

Answer: No. It is common for me to  diagnosis diabetes with a full 3-hour glucose test when the fasing blood sugar level is in the normal range.


Question: Is Blood  A1c Test Reliable for Screening for Diabetes?

Answer: No. It is common for me to  diagnosis diabetes with a full 3-hour glucose test when the A1c is in the normal range

The Basics of Diabetes — My 1958 View of the Disease

Reversing diabetes was not a part of medical consciousness then.


Types of Diabetes

  1. Prediabetes
  2. Type 2 diabetes
  3. Type 1 diabetes
  4. Gestational diabetes
  5. Latent autoimmune diabetes of adults (LADA)
  6. Mitochondrial DNA Mutations diabetes

All of the above are forms of insulin toxicity


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.


Two Core Aspects of the 2016 Diabetes Story

  1. One of two Chinese Have Diabetes or Prediabetes (JAMA 2013 report).
  2. Type 2 diabetes (the main type of diabetes) can be reversed by everyone willing and able to make the right effort to reverse diabetes.

Types of Diabetes

  1. Prediabetes
  2. Type 2 diabetes
  3. Type 1 diabetes
  4. Gestational diabetes
  5. Latent autoimmune diabetes of adults (LADA)
  6. Mitochondrial DNA Mutations diabetes

Pancreatic Diabetes

  1. Acute pancreatitis
  2. Chronic diabetes
  3. Pancreatic tumors
  4. Pancreatectomy

Diabetes of Endocinopathies

  1. Acromegaly
  2. Cushing syndrome
  3. Hyperthyroidism
  4. Glucagonoma
  5. Pheochromocytoma
  6. Hemochromotosis
  7. Cystic fibrosis

Genetic Forms of Diabetes

  1. Insulin gene mutations
  2. Insulin receptor mutations
  3. Genetic forms of diabetes

Three Parts of Dr. Ali’s Diabetes Course

Part 1:

The Basics of Diabetes — causes, symptom-complexes, clinical course, treatment options

Part 2:

Shift from glycemic status to insulin homeostasis (Getting away from the “sugar talk.” Knowing the truth.)

Part 3:

Clearing insulin toxicity, preventing diabetes, reversing Type 2 Diabetes, preventing and/or controlling complication, preparing to teach the course to otheres.


Limits on Students Taking the Course

  1. There are no limits who should take this FREE course..
  2. No medical background is necessary.
  3. The Course can be completed in six weeks or six months, or on an individual’s own pace.
