Reversing Diabetes – Lesson One


Majid Ali, M.D.

Celebrating Small Successes, Not Sweating Small Missteps.


 

This Lesson One of Reversing Diabetes Series includes the following:

  1. Diabetes is not a sugar problem
  2. Two examples of healthy insulin and glucose (sugar) profiles
  3. One example of insulin and glucose profiles of an individual with diabetes, before and after diabetes reversal
  4. What is insulin intelligence
  5. Metabolic Actions of Insulin Hormone
  6. How does insulin toxicity (hyperinsulinism) develop)?
  7. Oxygen Model of Insulin Toxicity

Diabetes Is Not A Sugar Problem

Diabetes is not a sugar problem. Diabetes can neither be prevented nor reversed by focusing on blood glucose (sugar) levels. To reverse diabetes, we need “Insulin Intelligence,”which requires the study of the subject with healing literacy, not with disease literacy or drug literacy.

Please study Table 3 for the insulin and glucose profiles of the man who reversed diabetes by making his insulin work. Closely examine his falling insulin level accompanied by his falling blood glucose levels with passing months. But first for comparison study, I offer two ideal insulin profiles presented in Tables 1 and 2.


Two Examples of Healthy Insulin Profiles

Table 1. Ideal Insulin Profile (Peak Value, 18 uIU/mL) of a 60-yr-old 5′ 7″ Male Film-maker weighing 147 lbs. Without Health Problems and Interested in Healthfl Aging. His Three “Secrets to Health” Are: Beautiful Thoughts, Diet, and Exercise.”

The Crank-Crank Shift Model of Insulin Toxicity

 In my book entitled “Dr. Ali’s Plan for Reversing Diabetes,” I illustrated the insulin/insulin receptor dysfunction with a crank/crank-shaft analogy. Below is some text from that book (available at http://www.majidali.com).
The cell membranes become resistant to insulin when they become chemicalized—plasticized, so to speak—and hardened, immobilizing the insulin receptors embedded in the membranes. The insulin receptor is a protein that criss-crosses the cell membrane like a cord. One of the consequences of grease buildup on cell membranes is that insulin receptor becomes turned and twisted, literally and figuratively. In a previous paper, I offered the analogy of a crank and a crank-shaft to explain insulin resistance. I visualize insulin as a crank—a device that transmits rotary motion—and the insulin receptor protein as a crank-shaft embedded in the cell membrane.receptor protein as a crank-shaft embedded in the cell membranes.




Metabolic Actions of Insulin Hormone

 Insulin hormone preserves health in many ways. Specifically, it has metabolic, vascular, and signaling roles, including:

☞ Facilitation of the entry of glucose in cells;

☞ The breakdown of glucose to produce energy in cells;

☞ Storage of glucose in the liver;

☞ Conversion of glucose into fatty acids;

☞ Activation of specific enzymes involved with protein metabolism; and

☞ Changes in vascular reactivity (compliance).




 What Is Insulin Intelligence?

I introduce term Insulin Intelligence for a clear working understanding of molecular biology of insulin which is necessary for preventing and reversing diabetes of all types. Specifically, it includes a deep knowledge of energetic, metabolic, signaling and other functions of insulin. To foster Insulin Intelligence, I include in this article brief outlines of Oxygen Model of Insulin Toxicity and The Crank-Crank-Shaft Model of Insulin Dysfunction. Before that, below in the simplest possible words, I offer the core of my dietary guidelines for normalizing insulin homeostasis.


Five Things to Remember

  1. Sugar in any form increases insulin toxicity
  2. Healthy fats are insulin-friendly.
  3. Healthy proteins are insulin-friendly.
  4. All carbohydrates in excess are insulin unfriendly.
  5. Vegetables are insulin-friendly.


  6. Insulin in excess (insulin toxicity) is fattening and inflaming.

The Oxygen Models of Insulin Toxicity and Diabetes

I proposed my Oxygen Models of Insulin Toxicity and Diabetes as unifying models that recognize disturbances of oxygen functions as the fundamental commonality of all elements that cause dysfunctional insulin signaling, hyperinsulinism (excess insulin), insulin resistance (inability of the insulin receptor to respond to insulin), and the biochemical and clinical consequences of insulin dysfunction.


Models in Science Are Proposed to: 

  1. Offer workable simplicity to reduce complexities of natural phenomena;
  2. Explain such phenomena;
  3. Predict natural phenomena hitherto unrecognized.

 

Models in medicine are tested, validated, or refuted with ongoing scientific observation. In clinical medicine, I add a fourth criterion for a model’s validity: it must facilitate health and healing. 
How does my Oxygen Model of Insulin Toxicity stand up to these criteria? I leave that to the readers’ faculty of considering the evidence which I present in a large series of my articles on http/:VUIM.org and in my insulin channels on my YouTube Science, Health, and Healing Encyclopedia.
