Is Diabetes A Sugar Problem? No.

Majid Ali, M.D.

Suite 3 C, 344 Prospect Avenue

Hackensack, New Jersey 07601



Is diabetes mellitus (Type 2 Diabetes) a sugar problem? No. The abnormalities of blood sugar seen in diabetes are the consequences of the derangements of cellular energetics and toxicity that collectively create what is commonly called diabetes. Is diabetes an insulin problem? No. The abnormalities of insulin functions are the consequences of plasticized (chemicalized) and hardened cell membranes that immobilize the insulin receptors embedded in them. Is diabetes a problem of blood vessels that causes blindness, kidney failure, stroke, heart attacks, and neuropathy? No. The abnormalities of blood vessels are the consequences of oxidizing and deoxygenizing influences in diabetes.

In this column, I marshal evidence for my view that the state of insulin resistance should be regarded as a “hardened cell membrane state.” The so-called metabolic syndrome should be visualized as a “gummed-up matrix state.” Prediabetes should be seen as a “mitochondrial dysfunction state.” The strategies for the prevention and reversal of diabetes yield better long-term clinical results if diabetes is recognized as a “dysfunction oxygen signaling,” or dysox, state.

In type 1 diabetes, insulin itself becomes a potent autoantigen and initiates autoimmune injury to pancreatic islet cells.1-3 I will show how this recently documented role of insulin in the pathogenesis of diabetes fits in the dysox model of diabetes presented here. In type 2 diabetes, insulin cannot function – insulin resistance, in the common jargon – and hyperinsulinemia develops, which triggers and amplifies the inflammatory response.4-6 In all types of diabetes, the endothelial cells produce nitric oxide and other bioactive factors in abnormal quantities and proportions.7,8 Diabetes causes neuropathy, retinopathy, nephropathy, dementia, stroke, and heart attacks. I will describe how those complications of diabetes can be better understood when the problems are seen through the prism of oxygen signaling.


Clinical, Epidemiologic, and Experimental Evidence Links Obesity With Insulin Toxicity

The link is supported by known metabolic roles of nonesterified fatty acids (NEFAs) and altered paracrine and endocrine functions of fat cells (adipocytes) in the energy economy of the body. For example, in a healthy state, NEFAs serve as substrates for adenosine triphosphate (ATP) generation. In obesity, these fatty acids are retained in excess in biomembranes of all cell populations of the body and within adipocytes. NEFAs, along with trans fats and oxidized lipids, then “harden” the cell membranes to clamp down on insulin receptors – rusting and impacting the crank, so to speak – to cause insulin resistance.12 Those lipids also “gum up” the matrix, blocking molecular cross-talk there. Eventually, those elements, along with other toxins, uncouple respiration from oxidative phosphorylation and impede mitochondrial electron transfer events.


In obesity, output of fattening hormones in adipocytes (fat cells) is chaotic in the ways in which it further increases cellular fat build-up and sets the stage for the development of diabetes.13,14 However, the obesity/diabetes link does not prevail in all populations of the world. For instance, in India, there is also an epidemic of low body-weight (LBW) diabetes15 – a phenomenon that clearly points to the existence of environmental factors unrelated to obesity that are involved in the pathogenicity of diabetes, and supports the dysox model of diabetes.

A growing number of free radicals, transcription factors, enzymes, and proteins has been – and continues to be – implicated in the pathogenesis of diabetes, including:
· nitric oxide16,17
· inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS)18
· mitochondrial uncoupling proteins (UCPs)19-21
· proinflammatory cytokines22-24
· resistin25,26
· leptin27,28
· adipokines29
· adiponectin30
· tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a)31
· peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARgamma)32-34
· nuclear respiratory factor-1 (NRF-1)35
· suppression of cytokine signaling (SOCS) proteins36
· retinol-binding protein-4 (RBP4)37
· antibodies against glutamic acid decarboxylase38
· prothrombotic species, including fibrinogen, von Willebrand factor, and plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1), adipsin (complement D), and acylation-stimulating protein (ASP) 39-42
· heat shock protein 60, voltage-dependent anion channel 1 (VDAC-1), and Grp7543
· hypercoagulable platelets44

 Reversing Diabetes – Four Goals of the Patient 


Reversing Diabetes:

Four Steps for the Patients

Four Steps for the Physicians

Four Steps for the Patient

  1.                                  Love

  2.                                 Oxygen

  3.                                 Prayer

  4.                                 Insulin


Love provides the purpose of reversing diabetes.

Prayer provides the path to that purpose.

Oxygen orchestrates the bodily functions that prevent and reverse diabetes.

Insulin is the master energy hormone for preventing and reversing diabetes.


The Reversing Diabetes Path

The Path to Healing Is the Path to Peace.

The Path to Peace Is the Path to the Spiritual.

The Path to the Spiritual Is the Path Away From the Self.

The Path Away from the Self Is the Path to One’s Own Divinity, to Oneness With Divinity.

The Path to That Oneness Is the Path to Insulin Solutions, and Freedom from Diabetes and Its Suffering.


Four Steps for the Physician

My top four goals for reversing diabetes and clearing insulin toxicity (hyperinsulinism) are the same as they for all other chronic diseases. Specifically, they are:

1. Oxygen signaling

2. Gut ecology

3. Insulin signaling

4. Truth and best effort


For my patients on the Path Away From Diabetes, I

  • Promise no results,
  • Promise total honesty, and
  • Promise best effort.


An Important Link for the Path

Other important links for knowing the path, please go to my video library near the end.

Vitamin B6 for Preventing and Reversing Gestational Diabetes

Vitamin B 6 in its Pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P5P) form can be rightfully considered a nutrient of choice for preventing and reversing gestational diabetes. Simply stated, this is how it works:

  1. Xanthourenic acid (XA) is a metabolite of tryptophan(which is used to produced melatonin and serotonin)
  2. Women who are more vulnerable to gestational diabetes seem to have altered enzymatic function so tryptophan is readily turned into xanthourenic but not so readily into melatonin and serotonin.
  3. Excess xanthourenic acid binds with insulin and blocks metabolic functions of insulin in lowering blood glucose level setting the stage for gestational diabetes..
  4. Women who are more vulnerable to gestational diabetes seem to have altered enzymatic function so tryptophan is readily turned into xanthourenic but not so readily into melatonin and serotonin.
  5. Very high estrogen levels during pregnancy also seem to play a role.

Supplentation Guidelines for Reversing Diabetes

Integrated Nutrient, Spice, and Herb Plan

Celebrating Small Successes, Not Sweating Small Missteps.

A Component of Holistic and Integrated Science and Philosophy of Reversing Diabetes

The Golden Begin-Low Build-Slow Principle

Do Not Take All Items In These Guidelines On the first day. 

In all guidelines for preserving health and reversing chronic disease with natural remedies, I strongly suggest that  readers to consider my Golden Start-Low-Build-Slow Principle. Simply stated, this principle requires that an individual, in trying natural remedies, be cautious and closely observe how the body responds to natural remedies, beginning with small amounts or portions (as low as one-tenth the value on the first day, and doubling them every day until the recommended amount is reached.) If any negative senses are experienced, the item should be discontinued for several days or be taken in smaller amounts for longer periods of time to increase tolerance. It is important that a doctor be consulted to rule out the presence of serious coexisting or underlying conditions.

Family healing work, first and foremost, has to be fun, each member moving on a personal pace. Pushing and brow-beating does not work in the long run, learning and knowing does. Long-term results require a philosophy of love and healing. So, again we celebrate small successes and not sweat missteps.

Reversing Diabetes – Lesson One Includes the Following:

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

Five-Step Plan for Reversing Diabetes

  1. A plan of food choices to prevent sugar spikes that trigger insulin spikes;
  2. A plan to do daily gentle bowel and liver detox;
  3. A program of oxygen-stabilizing spices, herbs, and nutrients;
  4. A program of non-competitive Limbic Exercise; and
  5. A personal goal of self-compassion
