Type 2 Diabetes: You CAN Reverse It!


hello friends and patients dr. Barry back again to talk to you about a very important subject type-2 diabetes now there’s some disagreement in the medical community about whether type-2 diabetes is a disease of diet or a disease of genetics or a disease of lifestyle and also is it curable or is it not curable and so I want to talk about this for a few minutes today and give you some insight into the things I’ve discovered over the last decade when I’ve been doing this on a daily basis type 2 diabetes is a devastating condition people who suffer from it you may have a family member who’s lost a leg who’s on dialysis who is blind who’s who has lost toes I mean it can really destroy your life it is a huge risk factor for heart attack and stroke and dementia it’s something that you never want to come close to having yet as America and as the Western world gets more and more overweight type 2 diabetes becomes very very common in the past when I was first training in medical school it was almost unheard of for a child to have type 2 diabetes it was it was called adult onset diabetes back then because no children had it now it’s very common much more common than it should be for a child to have type 2 diabetes and that the medical community should be ashamed of itself that there is a such thing as juvenile type 2 diabetes that shouldn’t exist so let’s talk about this and let’s talk about whether we can cure this or not we can definitely make it better but I think we can cure it so first of all let’s talk about the difference between type 2 and type 1 diabetes very quickly your pancreas makes insulin and if your pancreas stops making insulin for any of a variety of reasons then you have type 1 diabetes you have to have insulin or you’ll die so type 1 diabetics are a completely different topic it really type 2 diabetes probably shouldn’t even be called diabetes it should be called something else because insulin is not the solution for to diabetes as it is for type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes is diagnosed in someone who previously had normal blood sugars and normal insulin levels and normal hemoglobin a1c levels and who now have elevated levels this is a terrible thing if your doctor said oh your hemoglobin a1c is elevated a little bit I want you to do this and this and then we’ll check it again in six months I don’t want you to think oh well my even sees a loyal but it’s no big deal I want you to be mortified I want you to be terrified that your hemoglobin a1c is elevated that should never happen if that happens then there’s you you’re on the verge of having terrible terrible medical consequences so what’s the diagnose the definition of type 2 about diabetes so what we go by these days is called a hemoglobin a1c and that gives me a three-month average of what your blood Sugar’s been doing on a daily basis it’s not exact but it’s good enough that we can diagnose you based on that if your hemoglobin a1c is below a 5.6 or below then that’s that’s fine I actually want to be much lower than 5.6 but if it’s five point six or lower that’s okay for now if it’s five point seven to six point four then you’re what we call a pre-diabetic borderline diabetic insulin resistant in the past we kind of acted like well that’s not terrible you know it could be worse but I want you to understand today that if your hemoglobin a1c is five point seven or above you are at huge risk of heart attack stroke dementia losing limbs blindness dialysis terrible terrible things I want you to take that number very very seriously and if your doctor if you have high blood pressure or if you have any other risk factors for heart disease or stroke and your doctor doesn’t tell you what your hemoglobin a1c level is I want you to ask him because if he didn’t check it that’s a problem you guys probably need to have a talk and you either need to train your doctor or you need to find a new doctor but if he says oh it was 5.8 and that’s not too bad we’ll just keep an eye on it no no no I want you to get on the internet start googling start asking other people other doctors my 1c is five point nine or six point two and my doctor said that’s not a big deal is that a big deal or not it is okay that puts you at huge risk for all these medical things that you don’t want trust me so if your hemoglobin a1c is six point five or higher than you are a type-2 diabetic maybe now how does your doctor know that you’re not suddenly a type one diabetic well there’s a couple of labs he can check you can either check your C peptidyl level or you can just check an insulin level and based on those labs he can tell you if you still make insulin or not because if you still make insulin you’re not a type one diabetic you don’t need insulin ever and we’ll get to that but if you’re a type two diabetic insulin is never the answer for you okay we’ll get to what the answer is but that’s not it so if your doctor says oh you’re a type 2 diabetic I’m going to start you on the insulin you need to you need to worry about that and talk about that and say wait a minute don’t I still make insulin and if he says wool I don’t know if you do or not that he needs to check your say peptide or your insulin level and know for a fact because there are adults who become type 1 diabetics their pancreas just stops making insulin and if that’s you you need to know that because no pill in the world will fix your diabetes even your diet you won’t fix it if you stopped making insulin so you got you have to know the answer to that so if your doctor doesn’t know whether you’re making insulin or not that’s a problem you need the answer to that question so let’s say he did check a seed peptide or an insulin level and you’re still making insulin you’ve just become resistant to it what are you gonna do well there’s all these pills for type 2 diabetes and he’ll probably start you on warning for a while that’s fine but I want you to consider that pill a band-aid until you can fix the underlying problem yourself because type 2 diabetes is a is a disease of diet okay slender people who eat paleo diets in other countries never have type 2 diabetes it’s exclusively and we call it a lifestyle disease but that’s really not even true because you can exercise you can live on the treadmill and if you don’t change your diet you’ll never cure your type-2 diabetes so that’s the first thing I want you to understand is the the solution is your diet you have to fix your diets okay now let’s talk about that is it is it fat that’s making you type 2 diabetic is it protein what is it 90 percent of the time it’s starches and sugars ok so if you’re a diabetic it’s not cute that you drink two or three cokes a day or sodas a day in the South I told you we call them cokes but soft drinks that’s not funny that’s not a joke you’re doing permanent damage that can never be taken back if you’re drinking teas with that sweet and if your drink putting sugar in your coffee if you’re drinking fruit juices I don’t care if the organic fruit juice I don’t care if there are no sugar added fruit juice you are making your diabetes worse you’re literally giving yourself diabetes by drinking those things stop that immediately someone with the hemoglobin a1c a 5.7 or higher doesn’t ever need to drink a calorie ever if it’s an occasional treat that’s fine but as far as a daily basis you don’t need to drink any calories if you’re drinking calories you’re making your diabetes worse okay you there there are essential amino acids you have to have them those are protein building blocks or you’ll die you have to have them there are essential fats fatty acids you have to have them or you will die there is no such thing as an essential sugar there is no such thing as an essential carb there is no such thing as an essential starch you don’t ever need them in your diet ever now the big corporations can make all kinds of things out of grains and grasses and starches and sugars so they will pay every big Association every medical association to say oh gosh you need your whole week you need your grains you need your your all this stuff no you need any of that okay your body will actually get better and get more healthy and flourish by not eating those things okay so you have to understand type-2 diabetes is a disease of your diet which means your diet caused it that’s the bad news the good news is that you can use your diet to cure it yes security that’s right I firmly believe that in many of more and more doctors today are believing that as well William Davis a very prominent cardiologist believes you can cure type 2 diabetes dr. Jason Fung a very prominent nephrologist or kidney specialist he believes you can cure your type-2 diabetes not believe it – and I want you to believe it I want you to investigate this and I want you to cure your type-2 diabetes and prevent yourself from ever having it to start with now do you need to lose weight to cure type 2 diabetes indirectly yes when you get off the starches and off the grains and off the grasses and off the sugars you’re naturally going to lose weight and that’s going to naturally lower your blood sugar which is going to naturally lower the amount of insulin that you need and that’s gonna make you naturally lose weight and it may be a little slower than you want to and if you want to see your doctor and see if he can help you hurry up the weight loss that’s that’s acceptable but I want you to understand the reason you’re overweight if you are is because of your diet now if your doctor has checked your thyroid labs and your other labs and we know there’s no medical reason for you to be able to wait it’s your diet and you can play reindeer games and you can pretend like you never eat anything or you only eat raw cabbage on Tuesday I’m sorry if you’re overweight and your lab work is normal it’s your diet I’m sorry okay so by fixing your diet you can fix your diabetes and so we talked about this cure and people say well you can’t cure it you can just get your a1c level down low enough that we can say it’s controlled but if you’re anyone sees below 6.4 then you’re not diabetic because that’s the definition of diabetes right so but I want you to get your a1c down under 5.7 so that you’re not even pre-diabetic anymore and that’s completely in your hands you can do that you can listen to this video today you Google a few things you can do some research and you can cure your type-2 diabetes and you don’t even need a doctor to help you do it I’d prefer if you did have a doctor because you need someone to check these labs to make sure you haven’t become a type 1 diabetic but after that you can do it yourself you don’t need me you don’t need your doctor you don’t need anybody you can do it yourself with enough knowledge okay what about the medications don’t they cure the type 2 diabetes all the pills for type 2 diabetes none of them cure that condition all they do is they keep your blood sugar lower and more and more research is showing that the blood sugar being high in your blood is just a symptom of the diabetes that’s not actually the diabetes okay that’s like if you have the flu and it would make your fever go up right and so if you took some Tylenol and it made your fever go down then did you cure the the flu with your Tylenol no I don’t think so did you make your flu better no all you did was lower the temperature you lowered your fever that’s all you did and that’s what the pills for type 2 diabetes do they lower your blood sugar but many doctors and a couple of huge studies have recently shown that even if you take the pills and keep your blood sugar low you’re still doing the damage behind the scenes it doesn’t lower your risk of mortality or morbidity at all by taking the pills and keeping your blood sugar down you have to fix this condition this disease with your diet okay what about exercise now exercise is great and if you do resistance training and you build muscle that’s probably going to help you keep your blood sugar down but is he gonna cure your diabetes probably not no probably not exercise is great for you it’s great for your brain it’s great for your body and hundreds of ways but exercise is never going to help you lose weight and it’s probably not going to help you cure your diabetes okay the number one way you’re going to cure your diabetes is by fixing your diet with either a ketogenic diet to start with and then morphing into a paleo diet some people can keep doing ketogenic forever but if you’re eating starches and sugars and carbs simple carbs you’re never going to cure your diabetes okay if you go see a nutritionist and he or she’s not in the know they may tell you how your type 2 diabetic you need to eat more whole grains if your doctor or your dietitian tells you as a type 2 diabetic you need to eat more whole grains you need to probably look elsewhere for advice ok so I want to leave you with a couple of books that you can read yourself and if you read these books you’ll be smarter than the average dietitian or doctor when it comes to type-2 diabetes sorry doctors and dietitians the truth is what it is if you don’t like it that doesn’t change it ok the first one is called the obesity code by dr. Jason Fung he’s a prominent nephrologist or kidney specialist and he is on top of this you read that book and you’ll understand this you’ll never be tricked again the second one is one called keto clarity by Jimmy Moore he’s just a guy who was obese and diabetic and he said you know what I’m sick of this I’m gonna fix this and he did so much research on his own that he is he has fixed his obesity is fixed his diabetes and now he’s helping other people do the same thing a third book is called the Paleo diet by Cordain I love this book it was one of the very first books that woke me up and got me interested in this sort of thing I highly recommend all three of those books to help you cure your type-2 diabetes and in the process you’re going to lose weight as well you’re going to lower your risk factors you’re going to lower your risk of heart attack stroke dementia kidney failure all these things okay there’s so many of my patients running around with a hemoglobin a1c of five point seven eight nine and other doctors have told them well that’s okay we’ll just keep it there but then a few years later their creatinine level starts to elevate and they’re like well I’ve got kidney pride sale yer I don’t understand what’s going on and all the doctors act like I don’t know why you have kidney failure but just don’t take this and this and this and we’ll keep watching that anyone see mm-hmm guess what people that anyone see the insulin the the sugar that’s what’s causing the kidney failure okay I have other patients with elevated a1c and they go and see the endocrinologist he’s like well we’re just gonna watch and you take these pills and then a few days a few years later they’ve got fatty liver disease and everybody’s like I don’t know why you have that I don’t know it’s just I don’t know it’s a thing so just try to you know limit your saturated fat intake and I’m going okay that’s not what caused that and that’s not what’s gonna cure that you have to fix your fatty liver you have to fix your kidney failure by fixing your diet okay there’s no pill that’s going to do that for you you have to eat the right things and you have to avoid the wrong things that’s just the long and the short of it and if you don’t like that you can just click away from this video and pretend you didn’t hear it but you’ve heard it and you’ve been told and you’ve been warned and if you don’t heed my words you’ll suffer later okay more and more doctors are waking up to this that slightly elevated a1c is not okay somebody with an insulin resistance with an elevated insulin or an elevated C peptide that is a huge risk factor that’s not okay alright so get with your doctor get with your dietitian and ask them about these things make notes and take notes and say hey what the heck dr. berry said this was not okay that my a1c was 6.2 is is it okay or not okay and if they get upset that you bring information that you learned on the internet you probably need to find a new doctor I love it when patients bring stuff that they heard or read on the internet when they print stuff out and they bring stuff to me that means that they care about their health that’s actually a good thing that’s not bad doctors if your patient brings you stuff and you get irritated by that you maybe need to look in the mirror and refocus because you’re trying to help people don’t you want their help in helping them I do I like it when patients are motivated and want to help themselves so please turn on notifications for this video subscribe I want to help as many people as I can and I can only do that if you share this message with other people comment below as always I’ll answer every question you ask me if you want to tag somebody in this video and they have a question I’ll answer their questions as well I love doing this you may be able to tell that and I want to keep doing it and help as many people as I can not have a heart attack I want to help people not have a stroke I want to help people not have to be on dialysis I want to help people to never have liver failure because their livers full of fat because somebody told them don’t eat saturated fat and then that’s that’s ridiculous don’t listen to that advice if someone told you that so tell me what videos you’d like to hear about next time I’ll be to make one ask me any question you have as always this is dr. berry just doing the best I can

    Don't let your doctor tell you that a HbA1c above 5.6 is "ok" or "close enough". At those levels you are doing permanent damage to every small artery in your body, from the arteries in your eyes to the ones in you kidneys. You must fix your diet to fix your diabetes!

    Im a 16 year old male, and I was today years old when I found Im at a HUGE RISK for diabetes, I weigh 228 lbs and suffer from many of the symptoms. Fuck this my doctor told me That I was "okay" I'm literally killing myself and the worst part is nobody is telling me. Thanks a lot doc we need more ethical people like you

    Brilliant video, Doc! I LOVE your forthrightness in telling it 'like it is' – no holds barred, emphasising the SERIOUSNESS of the condition and the responsibility of the PATIENT to cure themselves! I have come to the conclusion that with the exception of emergency medicine (at which they are brilliant) and reconstructive surgery (at which they are brilliant), most MDs are practising QUACK MEDICINE – trying to treat chronic illness as a DEFICIENCY OF MAGIC PATENT PHARMA PILLS. In fairness to MDs, they are in a difficult position – many are still BRAINWASHED by Drug Industry hype, fraud and pseudoscience, and those MDs that have realised the irrationality of this approach are often unable to change direction because their livelihood depends on them continuing to practise "Magic Pharma Pill" medicine. However, I remain optimistic. MDs ARE waking up, and this awakening is gathering momentum. Your final point – that MDs should WELCOME patients who research the internet and are interested in healing themselves – is very well made.

    Been keto for 6 months now. Have not done any blood work in years ( ya ya, I know….lol). I'm going to wait a few more months on keto before getting all metrics checked out, IF I can find a keto friendly doctor.

    I'd like to know if your average daily glucose measurement as say, per the keto mojo meter over a 120 days time would in any way be reflective of an A1c test? I believe the A1c is a percent of sugar in the hemoglobin over the past 3 months? Is that correct?
    So, would not my daily glucose readings averaged out over a 120 day time period effectively be the same thing, or close to it?

    My fasting blood glucose was 4.3 this morning. Average now over the past 2 weeks is 5.3 (mmol…. got the meter set to mmol to make the GKI calculation quickly) Am now 'experimenting' to see how the numbers change, lol.

    I really don't care what the numbers were before. Today is all that counts and I just want to know I'm on the right path. Age 65, modified keto for bodybuilding. Much more protein. Still, have lost way too much weight, lol. From 194 in January to now 145 lbs in July! (5'9" tall)
    Most of that weight was lost the 1st 4 weeks…..
    Keto was done for inflammation/joint pain & psoriasis control (the weight loss has taken me by surprise, lol), and it's been great for that in all areas. Not cured, but wow… major differences that I have not seen on my skin in many long years.
    Keto rocks doc, and you are one of the best! Thanks for all of the great information.

    Here's my story. Back in March of this year, I was going to have some dental work done, but the dentist took my blood pressure and it was 190/130 (no dental work done). I was told to go to the emergency room immediately. When I got there, it had risen over 200/130. I was immediately given blood thinners and blood pressure medicines, then admitted. During my short stay, not only did I find out that had 2 heart attacks, one in the emergency room and the second during a stress test, I had one some time in the past and all three times, I never knew I had them. I also found out that I was Type 2 Diabetic. At that time I weighed 320 lbs. After I was released, I was determined to get my diabetes to go into remission and get my cholesterol under control. After some research for low carb recipes, I discovered the Keto diet and I'm happy to say that I am now considered 'at risk' for type 2 diabetes, my cholesterol level is under 100, the heart is doing great and I have lost over 40 lbs.

    My A-1C is high and l.m going to see a doctor to find out what foods l should be eating and Not be eating in about 2 weeks.
    I was told by my doctor to eat whole wheat 100% or whole grain bread l do drink water everyday and plenty of it and l also drink apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoon in green tea with lemon a wedge and cinnamon and fresh ginger 3 slices an a little honey once to 2 times
    a day.
    Is this good to drink this 2 or 3 times a day.?
    l was drinking this tea 3 times a day or mixing the ACV in my 100% pink grape fruit juice with cinnamon and pinch pepper everyday is this good to drink everyday this many times.?
    It helped me lose weights as well so very helpful to me or should l do less .?
    Thank you for any feed back.

    You do NOT want your HBA1C to go extremely low. There are limits. HBA1C below 4% is associated with an increase in all-cause mortality after following 14,099 patients after a decade. This fact is supported by the study entitled "Low Hemoglobin A1c and Risk of All-Cause Mortality Among US Adults Without Diabetes"

    the study concludes with the following:
    In this nationally representative cohort, low HbA1c (<4%) was associated with increased all-cause mortality among US adults without diabetes. Additional research is needed to confirm these results and identify potential mechanisms that may be underlying this association.

    My husband was admitted into the hospital his sugar reading was off the chart, the first reading was 700. He was sent home and now I'm trying to see what food would adjust his sugar level. It's still reading above 200. He was given pills to take every morning. Could you tell me what foods I need to be having him eat to get this sugar level where it need to be. The nutrition just tells me to give him an balance meal which I'm trying to mix to see what spikes his sugar. Should he just be on green vegetables and protein

  9. Lynell Powell

    Can you please answer my question. My husband is a type 2 diabetic. We have been doing low carb for months. He is not fat, weight is about 215. He hasn’t lost any weight, and I’ve lost about 70. I’m larger than him. I lose very slow no matter what I do. This summer while out of school I’ve walked 4 -5 miles a day and the scale hasn’t moved. His A1C was up to 10, we’ve gotten it with med and eating to 8.1. We recently started the method on your video, no artificial sugar, natural and I’ve done the fasting as well. His sugar this morning was 203, during the day it comes down to normal or closer, but spikes over night. How can we fix this and why does my scales not move regardless.

    Dr Berry, I have been type 2 diabetic for over 20 years now and only was getting worse never better. I'm 57 year old male and 4 months ago my weight was 246.
    I started intermittent fasting and low carb, very little to no sugar diet and lost 41lbs. Sugar levels came down but still not to normal.
    Here is my problem. I was able to come off lantus(25 units a day) but when I stop my glimepiride(2mg once a day) my daily glucose readings are staying in the 160s and higher with spikes when I eat and even in the last 3 to 4 hours of my 16 hr fast.
    I'm really disappointed and confused as to why I'm not having the same results as others. Working out, doing HIIT workouts 3 times a week and still dealing with high glucose numbers.
    Having family issues that are causing high stress, could this be why? Is there anyone else having this same problem? Please advise.

  11. the III

    Dr Berry, let add that my ignorance and my doctor's incompetence when it comes to type 2 diabetes comes at a great cost.
    I was diagnosed at age 36. First heart attack at 46, second at 48 in the widow maker. Stints were used in both. Quadruple bypass, pacemaker and defibrillator done at age 55.
    Thanks for all your advise, I'm felling better than I have in 30 years. Your videos are a God send to all of us who are waking up to the fact that we have to take our health into our on hands and use Dr's as consultants not health managers.

    i have mentall illness the government gives me very little money to live on forcing me to eat pasta every day for years i get teh pasta for one dollar a box and i put very little sauce on it i beleive i now have type 2 diabetes

    Does drinking milk affect sugar alot? Should i be worried about drinking it? My dad is diabetic, can he drink milk? Sry if thats alot of question

  14. Meya Enyo

    Wait I was told it can't be reversed once you get it. I honestly thought diet soda would be fine but just learned it damages me, so I've stopped dr4inking it now.

  15. Lena

    I dont care what anyone says, YOU CANNOT REVERSE DIABETES. All your doing is changing your eating lifestyle, but you will always be a diabetic. If on a whim you decide to indulge in a day of sweets, your blood sugar will still rise bc your pancreas does not work properly…and yes I am a diabetic myself since the age of 12.

  16. Pheanixs

    Thank God I found your video! I am a Holistic Nutritionist and I've been trying to get it across to all these people with type 2 diabetes that they have to change their diet! No sugar no carbs.I live in Vancouver BC and if you go to the Diabetes Association website and check out the diets that they recommend it's absolutely atrocious! Full of carbs!I will be sending lots of clients to listen to your videos. Thanks so much for caring and being honest!

  17. Shirrell Johnson

    Thank you Dr Berry, I was told that my glucose levels are now 6.5 so I have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and its not something I wanted to hear, I have been a bit depressed and withdrawn from people since I lost a well paying job and have not been able to find something that pays any livable wage so food became my friend. I didn't care what I ate, it made me feel better, but now I have eaten myself into a disease,that I'm not claiming, I'm going to do everything in my power to rid myself of this title. And with the information you just shared with me I'm on my way. One other thing, I have been experiencing some numbness on my (R) foot in a few of my toes, can you tell me what that means? I'm concerned about this.

  18. Rick T.

    Dr. Berry… You’re saving more lives than you’ll ever know. Sadly, there are hundreds of thousands more who remain ill-informed and will continue to die. I share your videos to as many people I know who struggle with Diabetes and obesity. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for what you do.

  19. Annmarie Yorke

    Hi Dr. Berry I love your videos they are very informative you are talking truth some of the doctors only give you a bandage to cover the wound and the wound is getting worse and there is cure for the wound but they just keep giving you the bondage I am a type 2 diebetic and I started to do my dietary changes thank you for your knowledge I am trying to get my A1C down to 5.3 through dietary changes.

  20. Cheryl Allison

  21. Randy Cross

    Following Dr Berry's advice for 2 years now…Yesterday my A1C came back at 5.5 down from 6.0 two years ago…My triglycerides have dropped in half. My HDL is up substantially. Lost over 40 pounds of fat. KETO and intermittent fasting works. Thank You Dr Berry. Love your book too.

    Doc, my last A1C was 8 months ago and was 5.2% I’ve been on and off keto. Yesterday I ate a lot of bread and took my blood glucose today fasted. It was 123. This seems high. Is this something I should be concerned of?

    Thank you Doctor Berry, MD for possibly saving my life, or at the very least saving me from future years of illness brought on by the effects of diabetes.  The information in your video provided me both the encouragement and insightfulness into reversing diabetes.  Information and encouragement that neither my doctor nor my dietitian were able to provide.  You see, 3 months ago I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes (A1C level of 11.0).  I immediately turned to the internet to get more information on my diagnosis and treatment.  With the grace of god, I stumbled upon your video, which equipped me with the knowledge to reversing by diabetes. I'm extremely proud to say, all thanks to you, I have gone from an A1C level of 11.0 to 4.9 in 3 months.  My weight as declined from 215.6 lbs to 189.4 lbs, and I'm off my blood pressure pills.  My life style will never go back to what it was.  You mostly, and a few other youtubers, and William Davis, MD (his preface in Wheat Belly Cookbook – the facts about Wheat), were my sources of encouragement and guidance, when my wife and many others were so skeptical.  I will always be indebted to you.

    Dr. Berry, I have been watching a lot of your videos and been eating low carb. I lost some weights for sure. Sugar readings have got better too. My question is once my type 2 diabetes is reversed and my A1C becomes in the normal range, can I eat some stuff like I used to like rice and noodles and spaghetti and some desserts. It's been hard. Don't know how others went through but it's sure difficult for me. When my diabetes is reversed, I hope it's permanent. Or do I have to keep staying low carb or keto for the rest of my life? Thanks.

    Is taking aspirin with statin okay in a long term? What are the side effects? How could I avoid taking blood thinner and not at risk of stroke.

    I've read articles stating there is correlation between women having full hysterectomy, low thyroid and type 2 diabetes. What are you thoughts on this? My mother has all 3. I have her on iodine and selenium and her A1C and blood sugar have lowered.

  34. Matt Jones

    Nearly 4 months ago a random blood test showed my A1C to be 106mmol/mol (sorry, we do things different in the UK) which is way up near the top of the chart, I had heard that people manage to reverse their Diabetes, so found yours (and others) videos on here, coming from a fitness industy background, and remembering reading Lyle McDonalds book, I decided to try Keto, and after watching your videos, I backed this up with some Intermittent fasting (which was easy on Keto, I was never hungry!) – Anyway, to cut a long story short, in just over 3 months I achieved 75lbs weight loss, My hba1c has gone from 106mmol/mol to 39!! The Doctor (who was very dismissive of lifestyle change) couldn't believe it. Also other markers she was concerned about (lipids, Liver…pretty much everything) have all gone from "urgent action required" to normal, So glad I refused to take that Statin! Thank you for your advice, sincerely.

    Had a lab drawn 1 week ago and my total creatine kinase was 469 ,this has me concerned as the range is 0-235 u/l. I had eaten a lot of Mexican food 3 hrs before.

    Awesome job. Thanks so much for sharing and caring. Does a sea salt flush help? How bout juicing celery, carrots and any other juicing

    At age 60 I reversed my type 2 diabetes – my story is here on YouTube. Although my diet and lifestyle was the cause – I do wish that urgency you suggest from the medical community at the first sign of elevated sugars would have been conveyed – I could have made my change before damage was done.

    Dr. Berry, I just had a test done from my endocrinologist and my glucose is 102 and my insulin B chain is 29.8. What does the insulin B chain level mean?

  39. Lynda Pope

    Love your directness, and so true. its funny my text book i have to study says to increase whole grains which is funny because they come in the form of starches and sugars so the opposite to what we need.

    When diagnosed 6 years ago my Dr who has been a Atkins proponent for years handed me a pamphlet and told me to lose weight and all my health problems will be solved. HBP, Cholesterol, A1C. 6 mos moderate carbs low calorie diet and exercise I lost 55 pounds and kept it off. A1C went from 6.8 to 5.8 without meds. I went Keto last year and 5.1 no meds. Our diet is truly killing us. I have not used Keto to lose weight just glucose control. It works for that. The main benefit is hunger control. I just don't need to eat often or large portions. I don't count calories and still exercise.

    I realise that this video is nearly 2 years old and maybe now you have better understanding but …

    Please STOP claiming to be able to cure Type 2 Diabetes. It's quite simply false.
    Type 2 Diabetes is in essence a condition whereby the body becomes Insulin Resistant. No amount of diet or exercise will remove that Insulin Resistance.
    Diet can reduce your carb / sugar intake but it does not change the way your body uses Insulin to process glucose. Similarly exercise can help your body to process carbs and glucose stores faster but again it is NOT stopping your body from being Insulin Resistant.

    To claim that diet and exercise are a cure for Type 2 Diabetes is like saying that you've cured a rapist by locking them away from potential victims: they're not cured – sure, you've prevented the undesirable result but the underlying condition still remains.

    And not all diabetes is weight-related: mine's genetic. So again, diet is not a cure.

  42. Luvin Itall

    I realise that this video is now 2 years old and maybe you now have a better understanding of Type 2 Diabetes but please …

    STOP CLAIMING TO BE ABLE TO CURE TYPE 2 DIABETES.
    This is false and unethical.
    Type 2 Diabetes is a condition whereby the body becomes Insulin Resistant and so cannot process carbs / glucose normally. Type 2 Diabetes is not stroke, loss of eye-sight or fingers or toes, etc., … Type 2 Diabetes is Insulin Resistance.

    While I'm in total agreement with you that diet and exercise are healthy and key to MANAGING Type 2 Diabetes …
    Diet merely serves to reduce the carb / sugar intake while exercise increases the rate of burning carb stores for energy. Both diet and exercise help to reduce the glucose that the body needs to process – therefore avoiding the issue with Insulin Resistance and avoiding the glucose being dumped into the blood stream.

    Claiming to be able to cure Type 2 Diabetes via diet and / or exercise is like claiming to be able to cure a paedophile by locking them in a room alone. All you've done is avoid the end-result.
    A+B=C
    Paedophile + child = rape
    Insulin Resistance + carbs / sugar = Type 2 Diabetes issues

    Removing carbs / sugar and children simply removes B from the equation. It does not address the underlying condition of A.

    Like so many conditions (bipolar, clinical depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, etc., …): it cannot be cured – simply managed and hopefully avoided.

    And not all Type 2 Diabetics have weight issues. Mine is genetic and, as my Dr told me, I'm not overweight so I can't fix this by losing weight.

    There are a large number of female doctors a more inclusive use of pronouns would be wonderful. For example “they” when describing male and female doctors.

  44. Tatiana Neyra

    Doctor Berry, my husband is over weight and diabetic. He is having his blood work fasting next week. Any important tests we need to ask the doctor?

  45. Heidi Samuel

    Yes! It is reversible! I've done it! You are the best doctor! Thanks for your honesty and for getting this truthful information out there!

  46. AsILoveMyself ILoveYou

    Hello (Doctor?) Berry. I have T2D and I agree with everything you and an exponentially growing number of physicians are now concluding, which is that T2D IS REVERSIBLE and that insulin actually make T2D (Insulin Resistance) WORSE. Just a little 'heads-up' though: You can have much more credence (& more people take you completely seriously), if you STOP wearing your stethoscope around your neck ! No 'real' doctors do that anymore. It's like saying "Look at me, I'm a doctor. I know what I'm doing & pretty clever". We know that doctors just have ability to remember symptoms, diagnose patients & BLINDLY prescribe med(s) as per their COMPLETELY OUTDATED training. We are hopefully going to change that and STOP T2D pandemic which current treatment is failing to do.

    Dr Berry what are your thoughts on family history of heart disease and diabetes? I've always been told I can't get away from the family history of both of these diseases. I am a borderline diabetic and am on 2 high blood pressure meds. I started the keto lifestyle 2 weeks ago and stopped taking my metformin. I have lost 12# and my blood sugar is consistently below 100 at all times of the day. I feel fantastic!

    I figured out “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it) from my good friend and read it to shed weight as well as treat my diabetes. I had been following firm exercise as well as diet plan. I had been able to reduce Thirty five points from my blood sugar levels right after a day on the diet system. Right after Four days, I lost 60 points from my blood glucose levels. It`s been efficient for me personally. I`m very pleased that I managed to stabilize my blood sugar levels..

    I had been clinically determined to have diabetes almost a year ago. I`m presently Sixty-four years old. Getting diabetes is a distress for me personally, and also the fact that I will be suffering the effects of diabetes like my father. The good news is, I have found this excellent guide “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it). The main test outcomes show that my glucose was at 183 and my A1C was 7.3. I read the program carefully for a week and now my A1C dropped to 5.9…

    I'm on keto now for 3 weeks. My fasting glucose is around 150. Is this normal in the beginning? Even though I have absolutely no carbs in my diet, except for the ones from veggies. I keep my daily carbs under 20 grams. And yes, I'm type 2 diabetic.

  51. George Wilson

    and yet another Dr seeking to scare diabetics, they already know the complications that can happen, there is know need to keep repeating the scare stories. Mr Negative.

    I am very glad I found your channel I was told a few weeks ago I am a type 2 I have never been before . My doctor who said she was watching was doing just that watching it go from a good level to a 7.1 level . I am doing research like crazy to find out what I need to do to get this gone for good . so any help I will take and any advice I would love I have gone from a 12 pack of soda down to one a day if that some times I am not even doing that . I have subscribed to your channel because I want to do whatever I have to to get this gone .

    What he failed to tell you is that you should stop drinking Alcohol, and Sodas. In order to improve your Liver and Kidneys. Don't eat Cane Sugar, use Splenda Sugar instead and stop Smoking. Those are some of the things that can make things worse for you with Type 2 Diabetes. Eat more Vegetables and to lay off of White Bread which is high in Carbohydrates and Fat. Don't drink Fruit Punches, but you can drink your own Lemonade, Tea, and Coffee with Splenda Sugar not the Powder kind but the Sugar blend. Since I have been to the Doctor for my Check ups after I was Hopitalized. My Blood Sugar was around 1,400 when I had went to the ER from drinking Fruit Juices and Eating Snickers bars, I have had a good report. The Doctor told my that everything has improved a lot. I went to the Eye Doctor because I needed some new Glasses and Cotact Lenses, the Eye Examiner told me that I did not have Diabetes. So it's really about putting good food in you body and staying away from bad foods that can make you sick. Drinking more Water will help your Liver and Kidneys.
