Sugar intake, pre-diabetes, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes explained using a subway analogy,

hi this is Steve Hughlett from balanced
fit lifestyle .com and today I kind of want to explain to you a little bit
about what type 2 diabetes is what insulin resistance is what pre-diabetes
is and what full-blown type 2 diabetes is and the way I’m going to do this is
I’m going to use the analogy that I got from dr. Jason Fung he’s a nephrologist
out of Canada and he wrote the book diabetes diabetes code and the obesity
code and both of these are fantastic books if you have diabetes or know
anybody who has I highly recommend both these books to read because it really
explains a lot and again I really like this analogy and I hope that this helps
kind of clear things up for you as well so what we’re going to do in this
analogy is this is actually a subway station and these cars on the side these
are going to be the cells in your body and the people are the glucose that’s
the sugar that’s in your body and then the conductor’s the conductor’s is going
to be like the insulin and so it’s up to the conductor’s to make sure that we
only have 80 to 100 people out here in this in this hallway and that’s kind of
to equate to our 80 to 100 milligrams per deciliter of our fasting glucose so
Arrius that only wants or these conductors only 180 200 people out here
so after we have a mill and we have all this glucose what happens the
conductor’s come through here and they tell all these people they need to get
out of this hallway we need to get you into these cells okay because we can
only have 80 200 milligrams per deciliter or 80 200 people out here so
that’s what happens we have a meal the conductor’s come down and they tell the
people get in the cells and so the cells the people go and they get in the cells
and now there’s the glucose inside your cell and the glucose and they’re your
cells are all packed and they’re all up here at all you know their structure up
here together but that’s perfectly fine because this is what’s supposed to
happen this is this is our normal glucose inside of our cells and what’s
supposed to be happening as I’ve explained in another video our glucose
is made for energy that that’s what we actually use that for in our bodies this
energy so this these glucose molecules are sitting in our cells waiting for the
doors to open up and so we can be going and use for whatever energy we need and
so that’s what happens the doors open up and the glucose comes out okay now it
goes and gets transport around to wherever it’s needed for energy and this
is all perfect this is exactly what’s supposed to happen this is normal now
what happens if this is the the glucose is all cramped up here inside these
cells and it’s sent here and is packed in and it’s waiting for these doors to
open up so it can be come out and used for use for energy but instead of the
door though nothing coming out we have another mill so we have this another
huge glucose flow that comes into our bodies and it’s floating around inside
glucose and fructose it’s sugar and it’s floating around and start our blood
stream well our bodies come out and say whoa whoa whoa there are way too many
people out here we’ve got to get you packed in these cells so those that you
know those of you that were inside the cell that’s trying to come back out and
go back in we don’t have room for you and we’re gonna pay put more in so the
body kind of freaks out and what it has to do is it says I can’t handle this I
need to call out more insulin and so that’s exactly what the body does is it
causing more insulin so this is what happens and this is what pre-diabetes is
pre-diabetes means your glucose is kind of the same kind of normal but our
instant levels are really really getting high because it takes more and more
insulin to handle the same glucose load that we hit that we’re putting it
through but remember insulin doesn’t just come into the body and just make
glucose just disappear what insulin does is insulin comes in and it pushes more
glucose into the cells because that’s what insulin is Instant is a storage
hormone it means it takes your glucose and it makes it it stores glycogen gets
make it stored as fat or or it allows it to get burned off as energy that we need
right away so this instant when it comes in and our
bodies are full of sugar what the insulin does is it gets in there and it
starts packing back and pecking us pushing pushing pushing all this glucose
into these already packed cells and that’s what happens is these cells are
so packed that you’ll see as it doesn’t matter how much insulin it doesn’t how
many how many conductors you get when these cards are totally full you’re not
gonna be able to put any more people in there and that’s what it is with our
insulin when our cells are so full all of a sudden we have all this insulin
that’s trying to do it trying to get the glucose in this is called insulin
resistance it takes a lot more insulin to get the
inside the cells getting out of this bloodstream that since the resistance
but what happens when these cells are totally full and we try to get more and
more in it ends up there’s nothing else we could do and now the glucose spills
out it spills out all into our bloodstream and this is when we come in
and we say oh now you have full-blown diabetes you have sugar floating all
around your cells and so what are the physicians do what do we do in the
medical field what we do is we try to get this blood close out of glucose out
of the bloodstream the only way we can do it there’s different ways we can do
it but one of the main ways we would do it is with medication and we have to do
it by either either making given medication makes the pancreas produce
more insulin which as you see that’s not going to really do that much good or if
that gun start working now we have start giving you more insulin but remember the
more insulin guid that’s not really help in this situation it’s actually making
the situation worse because now your body can’t produce
enough insulin to cram more people who met grim more glucose in the cells so we
give you more insulin to cram more into these cells the only way to stop
diabetes to prevent it and reverse it is stop putting sugar in our mouths
stop putting sugar stop printing high-fructose corn syrup
stop putting processed food stop putting flour in our mouths because it doesn’t
matter how much medication you give there’s no medication that’s going to
stop the root cause of diabetes and the root cause is too much sugar and too
much high fructose corn syrup too much processed food too much flour in our
diets there’s no medication that’s going to take that blood glucose out of
ourselves we have to quit putting it in and we’ll talk about more of that on
another video but I hope this kind of makes you understand what’s going on and
how you totally have total control over what’s happening you’re type 2 diabetes
and treat it now before this high blood glucose goes in and starts making more
damage with organ damage and organ failure so hope this helps and hope to see
you in another video
