Type 2 Diabetes, formerly known as the Adult Onset Diabetes (because it almost never occurred before adulthood), is now occurring in epidemic proportions in the US and in many areas throughout the world. Genes almost certainly play a role in the predisposition to Type 2 Diabetes. However, it is equally clear that those who are predisposed to diabetes are not destined to develop it unless they also develop poor lifestyle/health habits. Furthermore, it is refreshing to note that even in those who have developed type 2 Diabetes, it can be reversed with significant changes in lifestyle habits.

Study after study has confirmed, and I have witnessed, multiple patients who have reversed all of their signs, symptoms, and lab values of type 2 Diabetes using simple lifestyle modification. With the reversal of certain biometrics and lab values, it has been proven that severe problems like blindness, kidney failure, and heart disease can be completely avoided in these patients.

On the other hand, using standard medical therapy of oral medications and/or insulin typically leads to weight gain and a myriad of other health problems. Simply treating high blood sugar levels (a symptom of diabetes) with medications which lower blood sugar levels does not, in any way, treat the cause of diabetes. Ironically, though medications may be necessary at first, if appropriate lifestyle changes are made, then there will be no need for diabetes medications in most cases. Therefore, for patients with metabolic syndrome, prediabetes, and mild type 2 diabetes, lifestyle modification alone will likely completely reverse the disease.
