Reversing Prediabetes and Diabetes With 3D Plan: Insulin-Wise and Insulin-Unwise Foods and Meals

Majid Ali, M.D.

A Question-Answer Learning Exercise of Great Importance for Reversing Hyperinsulinism (Prediabetes) and Reversing Diabetes


 

Reversing Prediabetes and Diabetes 3D Plan

 

Three prongs of the Reversing Diabetes D3 are:

                                     D  for diet

                                     D  for Detox

                                     D  for Dysox

I use the term dysox in the context of controlling hyperinsulinism and reversing Type 2 diabetes (T2D) for oxygen-related co-morbidities of both hyperinsulinism and T2D.


 

Questions Exercise

For Losing Weight and Reversing Prediabetes (Hyperinsulinism) and Diabetes

with Diabetes 3D

I suggest that you print these questions and circle your answer in light of materials presented at this website. Specifically, which one of the following food/meal options are insulin-wise compared with others. The answers and explanatory comments appear at the end of questions.

  1. Popcorn in the movie house or a slice of pizza before the movie.
  2. Popcorn with butter or popcorn without butter
  3. Whole milk yogurt or fat-free milk
  4. Yogurt or kefer for snack
  5. Fruit juice or protein shake
  6. Egg omelette or scrambled egg
  7. Fish meal or beef meal
  8. Whole milk or 2% milk
  9. Toast with olive oil or with it
  10. Blueberries snack with or without cheese
  11. Peanut butter snack or an apple
  12. Foods that cause sugar spikes or foods that trigger insulin spikes
  13. Salad with olive or salad with salad dressing
  14. Flaxseed oil or freshly ground flaxseeds
  15. An apple in the afternoon at work or two teaspoons of almond butter
  16. Breakfast Protein Shake with or without Spices
  17. White rice of brown rice for dinner
  18. For high morning blood sugar levels due to diabetes, four ounces of protein shake in the morning before breakfast or at bed time
  19.  Carrots or radishes in equal weight  
  20. Total gluten abstinence for GERD-gastritis complex or for colitis
  21. Aspartame or saccharine as sweeteners 

 

Essentials of Relationships Between Food Spikes and Insulin Spikes

  1. Every food that causes a sugar spike triggers an insulin spike.
  2. Every insulin spike causes a sharp drop in blood sugar level (hypoglycemia).
  3. Every sharp drop in blood sugar level creates a craving for foods that produce sugar spikes.
  4. Every sharp insulin spike sets the stage for secondary, albeit lower, insulin spikes.
  5. The larger the number of insulin spikes, higher the chance of developing hyperinsulinism (insulin toxicity by its more appropriate name)

Majid Ali, M.D.

Introduction and Outline of Dr. Ali’s Reversing Diabetes 3D Plan for Reversing Hyperinsulinism and Reversing Diabetes 3D

Unless specified otherwise, the term diabetes in this article is used for Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) which is the main type of diabetes. 


 

The 3D Plan

  1. D    for Insulin Diet Plan for Reversing Diabetes
  2. D    for Insulin Detox for Reversing Diabetes
  3. D    for Insulin Dysox for Reversing Oxygen-Related Co-morbidities of Prediabetes and Diabetes 

 

Nine Essentials

of 3D Plan for Reversing Prediabetes and Diabetes

 

  1. Diabetes is not a sugar problem. It is a type of insulin dysregulation caused by toxicities of food, environment, and thought which collectively create dysfunctional oxygen metabolism and signaling.
  2. Insulin dysregulation has two dimensions: (A) the first dimension of insulin toxicity (hyperinsulinism) without raised blood glucose levels diagnostic of diabetes; and (B) the second dimension of insulin toxicity accompanied by raised blood sugar levels diagnostic of diabetes.
  3. In the writer’s oxygen-insulin perspective of human biology, insulin serves as the primal energy hormone of the body serving at the pleasure of oxygen. Homeostatic pathways of oxygen and insulin are intricately intertwined. 
  4. Insulin dysfunction can be reliably diagnosed only with blood insulin tests, not by tests for blood sugar levels (fasting blood sugar level, A1C level, two-hours post-prandial blood glucose test, or glucose tolerance test).
  5. Insulin toxicity (hyperinsilinism always predates diabetes by five, ten, or more years.
  6. So the only right way to prevent diabetes is to detect insulin toxicity and reverse it. No insulin toxicity, no diabetes. It is really that simple.
  7. Hyperinsulinism is eclipsing all chronic diseases worlwide. This writer and his colleagues documented a hyperinsulinism prevalence rate of 75.1% in the general population of New York Metropolitan area.
  8. Hyperinsulinism-to-diabetes continuum begins withe increased production and release of insulin by the pancreas gland in order to meet increased energy demands of injured tissues as they strive to repair their injuries.
  9. Reversing of hyperinsulinism and diabetes requires philosophy and science of holism in healing.

 

A Crucial Message From My Patients – My True Teachers

 

Hyperinsulinism cannot be controlled and diabetes cannot be reversed with denial of dieting or euphoria of eating. These objectives can be achieved and maintained by an informed focus on

First, according to a report of Global Burden of Disease Obesity Collaborators concerning 195 countries published in The New England Journal of Medicine on July 6, 2017, since the prevalence of obesity doubled in:

  1. More than 20 countries

  2. More than 30 countries

  3. More than 50 countries

  4. More than 70 countries

  5. More than 90 countries.

Second, insulin in excess is fattening, fermenting, and inflaming.

Two Dimensions of Insulin Dysregulation

Majid Ali, M.D., FRCS (Eng), FCAP (Path)

Type 2 Diabetes (TD2) Is Rooted In the First Dimension of Insulin Dysregulation. Type 2 diabetes does not occur when the first dimension of insulin dysregulation is detected and reversed.


SPECIAL NOTES

Treatment plans for reversing prediabetes (hyperinsulinism) and diabetes are presented at this site under the titles of

Reversing Prediabetes and Diabetes With 3D Plan 

 Links to important related articles are included at the end of this article.


Two Dimensions of Insulin Dysregulation

The author recognizes two primary dimensions of insulin dysregulation: (1) the first dimension is of excess insulin accompanied by a multitude of adverse effects of hyperinsulinism without associated glycemic disruptions characteristic of Type 2 diabetes; and (2) the second dimension of excess insulin accompanied by glycemic disruptions that meet the numerical criteria of Type 2 diabetes (T2D). The first dimension is rooted in the toxicities of food, environment and thought, while the second dimension is rooted in the first dimension. The first dimension is optimally detected by measuring timed blood insulin concentrations following an oral glucose load as shown in Tables used for case studies. The core message of this short article is this: If the first dimension of insulin dysregulation can be reversed, the problem of the second dimension (T2D) simply does not arise.


The Oxygen-Insulin View of Insulin Dysfunction, Diabetes Type 2, and Reversing Diabetes 3D

Oxygen is the organizing principal of biology and governs the aging process. The author began his book Oxygen and Aging (2000) with those words. This simple statement was the essence of his interest and study of molecular biology of oxygen for twenty years.1-4 His interest in molecular biology of insulin5-8 arose from his work in oxygen. The “oxygen-insulin perspective” of the two dimensions of insulin dysfunction and its scientific underpinnings was comprehensively discussed in his book entitled Dr. Ali’s Plan for Reversing Diabetes (2011)9 as well as in a series of follow-up publications.10-18

Life is an injury-repair-injury cycle. Cellular injury is intertwined with cellular repair by diverse mechanisms. Patterns of repair change with varying types of injury and the prevailing tissue condition. The constant in all this is expanded energy requirement of cells in the repair processes. Whether cellular repair is in acne or psoriasis, in polycystic ovarian syndrome in young women or recurrent prostatitis in young men, in chronic GERD-gastritis complex or Crohn’s colitis, inflammatory arthritis or pulmonary interstitial fibrosis, steatosis of the liver or chronic renal failure, systemic lupus erythematosus (see illustrative case study in Table 4) or scleroderma, the core requisite of cellular repair is the same: increased energy demands. Hyperinsulinism, in this context, is pancreatic response to increased energy needs for repair of injured tissues. The author has documented the presence of the first dimension of insulin dysregulation in all of the above-mentioned pathologic entities.


 

Three Crucial Aspects of Two Dimensions of Insuloin Dysregulation

From a clinical standpoint, three other aspects of the two dimensions of insulin dysfunction are:

  1. Epigenetics play greater roles than genetics in both dimensions;
  2. Understanding the pathophysiology, clinical courses, and optimal management of both dimensions of insulin dysregulation calls for a shift of focus from glycemic status to insulin homeostasis;
  3. Since first dimension is not accompanied by glycemic disruptions, the lab tests for glycemic status (fasting and 2-hour postprandial blood sugar levels, and A1c test) are not suitable in the detection and reversal of the first dimension.

 

Neglect of the First Dimension Deepens the Suffering of the Second Dimension

The data in Tables 1 and 2 summarizes the core statistical relationships between the two dimensions of insulin dysfunction. The two columns presenting mean peaks of blood glucose and post-glucose-load insulin concentrations in Table 1 dramatically document how far the prevailing practices of neglecting the first dimension go to deepening the problems caused by the second dimension.

Table 1. Insulin Homeostasis Categories in 506 Study Subjects Without Type 2 Diabetes

Neglect of the First Dimension By Laboratory Professionals

 The neglect of first dimension by the laboratory professionals is one of the most disturbing aspects of the sordid story of the two dimensions of insulin dysregulation. For instance, the reference range for the 2-hr post challenge blood insulin concentration of laboratory 2 (Table 3) is an astonishingly and utterly clinically unusable 0.0 to 163.5.

**Personal communications with clinicians revealed that they do not find this laboratory note to be satisfactory in their clinical decision-making.


 

Mechanisms of Insulin Regulation and Two Dimensions of Insulin Dysregulation

 The following is text on the subject from the author’s comments e-published in June, 2017 by the journal Nature. “The work of Zhang and colleagues is important for physicians who treat diabetes because class B G- protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are important therapeutic targets. Beyond that, this work invites all physicians to a deeper study of the inner mechanisms of insulin homeostasis, a subject that is seldom duly considered in clinical medicine. Specifically, insulin dysregulation has two distinct dimensions: (1) the first dimension of pathophysiology of hyperinsulinism which predates Type 2 diabetes (T2D) and is not accompanied by glycemic abnormalities detectable by the laboratory tests in current use; and (2) the dimension of T2D accompanied by hyperglycemia and its biochemical consequences. This author has long recognized the need for a shift of clinical focus from glycemic status to insulin homeostasis for detecting and optimally managing adverse metabolic, proinflammatory, endothelial, developmental, and neurologic effects of hyperinsulinism (ref. 2-6).”

Reversing Prediabetes (Hyperinsulinism) and Diabetes With 3D Plan

The insulin homeostasis protocol (the “Protocol”) evolved as a three-prong approach comprising: (1) diet; (2) detox; and (3) dysoxic comorbidities (oxygen-related coexisting pathologic entities) including disrupted hypothalamic and related neural pathways which regulate the energy economy of the body. The three “diabetes 3D” subjects are vast and clearly beyond the scope of this brief outline. A comprehensive discussion of all above subjects is presented at free access www.alidiabetes.org. Google search words are: majid ali, shifting focus from glycemic status to insulin homeostasis.
