I wanted to write about diabetes as the first in a series of articles on the link between nutrition and disease. First, let’s talk about diabetes.
Diabetes is twofold. It is categorized as first and second. In addition, there is a temporary diabetes condition. It usually occurs during pregnancy. Let’s talk about the first two. We have what is known as genetic inherited diabetes. Insulin is not produced by the pancreas in people with the condition. Let’s take a closer look at this situation.
We can get more medical data from America. According to US data, about 11% of people in the country suffer from diabetes. Most of them are American blacks. More than 13% of blacks are diagnosed with diabetes. American blacks are people who have been captured by Nigeria hundreds of years before America. According to the available data, 4% of people in Nigeria have diabetes. Thus we have one thing to look at. If the genes are coming from, the percentage of black people in the US who suffer from diabetes should be 4 or so. Otherwise, the percentage of people with diabetes in Nigeria should be 13% or less. But that has not been the case. Thus, we have to somewhat dismiss the notion that genetics cause diabetes.
In fact, Darwin’s theory of evolution suggests that if a gene is not favorable to the environment, the gene will become recessive and prevent those genes from becoming prominent. Accordingly, the number of patients with diabetes should be reduced in the coming years. But it doesn’t look like that. Insulin hormone production, which is expected to be given to diabetic patients, is estimated to be out by 2030.
I think the above two things are important in overcoming some kind of diabetes mom or dad.
Let’s talk about the function of the pancreas. In the pancreas, there is a type of cell file called Lanahan. There are two distinct types of cells. One is classified as alpha cells and the other as beta cells. Both cells control glucose in our blood. Alpha cells use a hormone called glucagon to increase deficiency and insulin to reduce glucose.
What we do know is that most people with diabetes pay for their lives because of low blood glucose levels. We have seen instances where some people have accidentally overdosed on insulin. However, we need to know that our body is capable of both lowering and increasing blood glucose levels. For some reason, this balance is called diabetes. Diabetes is not an increase in blood glucose but rather a lack of proper control of glucose levels. Unaware of it, most people only try to lower their blood glucose levels. It is important to go beyond that state of mind and find out the cause of diabetes. One of the main reasons is that we are talking about today.
There is a mineral that is essential for the production of insulin. The mineral is zinc. An insulin version is made of zinc. So if a person has zinc deficiency, he or she cannot produce insulin. So we see that this person’s pancreas doesn’t produce insulin. Perhaps the reason is the lack of zinc. So people with diabetes first need to eat zinc. That is the first step. About one month after taking these foods, you can figure out how to measure your blood glucose levels.
But if the beta cells of your pancreas are destroyed, the condition is a bit more serious. According to Western medicine, the first type of diabetes is caused by the destruction of our immune system, beta cells. Or a genetic mutation may be viewed as a gift from the mother or father. We are looking at this from a different angle. It may be contrary to your thinking. But think in the meantime. Something will make sense.
In just a few days, the embryo, which is formed of two mother and father cells, is used to produce over 200 different types of cells. Very nice work, right? One cell is two hundred square. If the cell was split, we would not see the world as a human being. We’re just a cell pellet. But the amazing thing is that our body has the ability to make another cell.
The same cell is created in the body where it is needed. In order for this to occur, the design of the DNA from the mother and father needs to be tailored to the cells in the site. This is done by a process called methylation, which takes place inside the cell’s nucleus. In this process, the mother cell disables all unnecessary DNA. So all that is left is the DNA structure that the cells can carry out. In other words, the mother cell can be transformed into 200 cells, of which 199 types of cells deactivate the DNA that is required for the cell, leaving only one cell type. This allows the new cell to function properly.
When a cell is created that is unable to perform its functions in some part of the body, the methylation process is not done properly. The immune system then destroys these cells. It is because the new cell does not accumulate on the spot and if it goes on to regenerate, the cells that do not fit into it will grow into cancer. So the relevant mutant cell must be removed. It is a healthy characteristic of the person concerned.
Now we need to find out what happens to beta cells. If beta cells are mutated, the immune system has to destroy them. This is a general rule not only for the pancreas but for the whole body. If so, then we can assume that the cause of autoimmune disease is not the proper formation of cells.
What we need to do now is provide the pathway for all cells of our body to carry out the process of methylation in the inner nucleus. This process is a complex one and I will explain the nutrients it needs. The following nutrients are needed for the process.
- Vitamin B12
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
- Folate (B9)
- Vitamin B6 methionine amino acid N-Acytel-Cysteine
Imagine if you were deficient in one or more of the above nutrients, your pancreas beta cells wouldn’t change? And then the immune system can’t kill those cells?
Thus, we can conclude that nutritional deficiency can affect anyone with the first type of diabetes. There are also non-nutritional factors that cause this condition. We will talk about them in future articles.
