Diabetes and Blood Sugar Imbalances

Prediabetes-19% or 59 million + 18 million have diabetes = 83 million 27% either prediabetes or diabetes (pancreas and liver imbalance)-this heals!

Data from the 2007 National Diabetes Fact Sheet  

Total: 23.6 million children and adults in the United States—7.8% of the population—have diabetes.

Diagnosed: 17.9 million people

Undiagnosed: 5.7 million people

Pre-diabetes: 57 million people

New Cases: 1.6 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed in people aged 20 years and older each year.

One out of every 4 Americans or 25% has either diabetes or prediabetes

In the past decade, the incidence among people in their 30s has jumped by 70 percent

40 percent of people ages 40 to 74 are pre-diabetic, explained Dr. Frank Vinicor, diabetes chief for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Once the body loses its ability to control blood sugar levels, the harm spreads everywhere from your eyes to your feet.  “Diabetes effects the total body because blood sugar goes everywhere in the body,” says the CDC’s Frank Vinicor.

World faces a “devastating” diabetes epidemic-World Health Organization

The number of people who have pre-diabetes has more than doubled since two years ago.

For decades, experts have worried that too much sugar damages small blood vessels, leading to blindness, kidney failure, and amputations.  But now the spotlight is shifting.

“Small-vessel problems that affect the kidney, eyes, and nervous system are devastating,” says Vinicor.  “But large-vessel problems like heart attacks and strokes are far and away the most common lethal complications of diabetes.  Sixty percent of diabetics die of a heart attack and 20 percent die of a stroke.”

Warning Signs

Type 1 diabetes: Frequent urination, unusual thirst, extreme hunger, unusual weight loss, extreme fatigue, irritability

Type 2 diabetes: Any of the type 1 symptoms frequent infections, blurred vision, cuts or bruises, tingling or numbness in the hands or feet, recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections

Note: People with type 2 diabetes often have no symptoms

Increased Cancer Risk of People with Type 2 Diabetes,

Diabetics have a higher rate of cancer than people who are not affected by this metabolic disorder.

The largest study ever on cancer risks of people with type 2 diabetes. The study included 125,126 Swedish citizens who had been hospitalized

The researchers discovered that people with type 2 diabetes have an increased risk of developing 24 of the types of cancer studied. The most significant risk elevation was established for pancreatic and liver cell cancers. The rate of these cancers in people with type 2 diabetes is elevated by factor six and 4.25 respectively compared to the general population. The epidemiologists also found the risk of cancers of the kidneys, thyroid, esophagus, small intestine and nervous system to be more than twice as high.


There are a number of risk factors which significantly increase the likelihood of the onset of Pre-Diabetes. These are:

  • a family history of Type 2 Diabetes or heart disease
  • Darkened areas of skin, a condition called acanthosis nigricans, is one of the few signs of prediabetes. Common areas that may be affected include the neck, armpits, elbows, knees and knuckles.
  • Increased thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Fatigue
  • Blurred vision
  • being overweight or obese
  • being aged 45 or older
  • suffering from hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • belonging to a high-risk ethnic group, namely African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Latinos or Pacific Islanders
  • being “apple-shaped” rather than “pear-shaped,” meaning that excess weight gathers around your waist, rather than your hips
  • suffering from Gestational Diabetes while pregnant or giving birth to a baby weighing more than 9 lbs
  • sleep and average of 5.5 hours or less
  • eating an excess amount of carbohydrates
  • leading a sedentary lifestyle with little or no exercise
  • being recently diagnosed as suffering from Insulin Resistance
  • Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X),
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) – a major cause of menstrual irregularity and female infertility, as well as skin conditions like acne, excess body and facial hair and female baldness

If not resolved diabetes ends up leading to many other diseases:

  • Cancer- 2-6X more chances
  • Neurological disease- Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Neuropathies
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease – diabetes is the number one reason for kidney failure and dialysis
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Thyroid disease
  • Gastrointestinal disease
  • Adrenal disease
  • Blindness
  • Amputations
  • Gum disease
  • Respiratory disease
  • Asthma/respiratory problems and childhood asthma has a definite link to sugar and carbohydrate maldigestion and sugar sensitivity.
    • Hearing loss/Meniere’s syndrome

Symptoms of Diabetes

The list of signs and symptoms mentioned in various sources for Diabetes includes the 64 symptoms listed below:

  • No early symptoms – many people have Type 2 diabetes without knowing it
  • Early mild symptoms- from moderate blood sugars (which are still dangerous and lead to serious complications):
    • Abscess

Major Cause of Diabetes is maldigestion

Signs of Not Digesting Carbohydrates

  • Crave sugar
  • Dry everything; eyes, nose, mouth even when you drink water.
  • Respiratory problems-asthma
  • Muscle weakness
  • Cannot think clearly or concentrate
  • Person may startle easily
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Voice changes when under stress

Signs of Not Digesting Proteins

  • Crave protein
  • Cold hands and/or feet
  • Do not like to exercise – stay sore
  • Heal slowly
  • Gums bleed
  • Weakened immune system
  • Increased body secretions – edema, perspiration, salivation, tears
  • Menstrual problems

Signs of Not Digesting Fats

  • Crave fats, oils
  • Dry skin
  • Respiratory problems – asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, COPD
  • Difficulty getting pregnant
  • Tremors


Pancreas #1 function is to digest your food, #2 is to balance blood sugar

Pancreas (hormonal-Endocrine) low blood sugar symptoms:

  • Dizziness when standing suddenly
  • Sugar cravings
  • Headaches that are relieved when sugar or alcohol are consumed
  • Shakiness, jitteriness
  • You wake up craving sweets in the night
  • Tired, weak or shaky feeling if you miss a meal.
  • Need to drink coffee to get going in the morning
  • Impatient, moody and nervousness
  • Tired feeling 1-3 hours after eating
  • Poor memory
  • Feeling faint
  • Poor concentration


High blood sugar symptoms:

  • Night sweats
  • Very thirsty, wake up during the night to drink water
  • Fatigued in general
  • Crave sweets but even when you eat them your symptoms don’t improve Increased healing time

Next stop is pancreatitis, diabetes, pancreatic cancer

The liver is your primary blood sugar balancing organ. It works in harmony with the pancreas. We have never seen a person with diabetes without a liver imbalance long before the pancreas imbalance.


  • High cholesterol
  • Varicose veins
  • Intolerance to oily, greasy, fatty food
  • Headaches after eating
  • Foul-smelling stool
  • Not having one bowel movement for each meal
  • Constipation
  • Sour taste in mouth
  • Green-, black-, and/or white-coated tongue
  • Grey-colored skin
  • Yellow in whites of the eyes
  • Bad breath
  • Body odor
  • Fatigue, sleepiness after eating
  • Water retention
  • Pain in right side under rib cage
  • Dry skin or hair
  • Skin problems
  • Vertical lines on nails
  • Painful bowel movements
  • Big toe pain
  • Pain radiating down leg

The answer to diabetes and all symptoms, conditions and diseases is rate your level of health and chart its improvement until you not only feel great but know that you are great on all testing and analysis- this is when total health has taken root and cannot be lost.

Do you understand yet how it works? You must balance all systems, all interconnections between systems and live all of the 7 basic steps to become and stay healthy in body, mind and spirit.

  1. Nervous system- brain, brainstem, spinal cord, spinal nerves
  2. Immune system
  3. Hormonal system-pituitary, thyroid, thymus, pancreas, adrenals, m/f
  4. Respiratory system- taking oxygen into the body
  5. Vascular system- blood supply to each organ and gland
  6. Digestive system
  7. Elimination system
  8. Reproductive system
  9. Structural system
  10. Biochemical system
  11. Mental/emotional state
  12. Spiritual state

Always remember to heal you must address the 10systems & 2 states.
