Diabetes - a hereditary disease



Host: Diabetes creeps into our life very silently and we don’t understand what to do and what suggestion should we seek from whom. There are so many restrictions fasten us that we feel ourselves caged. It feels like that we have trapped our life in a cage.  But now, you will get the correction solutions and suggestions by the doctor who claims to not only treat but also reverse diabetes. He is India’s number 1 lifestyle doctor and famous diabetologist ‘Dr. Gaurav Sharma’.

Doctor, you have always informed us about Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes inflicts by birth and is hereditary disease also. Why diabetes is called a lifestyle disease?

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: Let me correct you a bit. Type 1 diabetes is not a hereditary disease but it’s an autoimmune process due to which we fall ill. It was also called ‘Juvenile diabetes’. But now, 20 to 22-year-old people are suffering from this disease since their lifestyle has been changed completely.  We have diagnosed 7 to 8 year-old children suffering from Type 2 diabetes. Our environment is changing a lot.  As per standard, a civil war takes place inside our body under autoimmune system. Our body is confused a lot. The cells inside pancreas called Islets of langerhans begin to destroy. Thus, insulin is not produced leading to hike in blood sugar levels. You have to take insulin for saving your life for life long. As far as Type 2 diabetes is concerned, it’s a disease of insulin resistance. That means our produced insulin has become weak lacking good quality. Our lifestyle is related to it. We have pesticides, insecticides, fertilizers dissolved in water; the quality of food is down, chemicals are used for rapid production but half food is wasted. There are no nutrients available in our food. The deficiency of nutrients cause pause of small bi-chemical reactions, such as chromium zinc and selenium. They used to available from micrograms to milligrams. Plants would make vitamins from the earth that was consumed by us which fulfilled our nutrients’ need. But vitamins and minerals are deficient in our food today. Therefore, lifestyle has become important today. We are not doing enough exercise; taking stress a lot; and thereby our insulin has become very weak. Then, we have to take drug. It becomes a progressive disease. Gradually, the pills multiply. We have discussed about insulin, organ damage numerous times. Diabetes is a lifestyle disease for preventing to which life correction plays important role. When, what and how much to eat and how to do exercise; how to monitor blood sugar-these are our responsibilities to teach you and following to these is your responsibility.

Caller I: I am Sudha Chaurasia from Rajinder Nagar, Indore. I had the problem of diabetes. I have been relieved to such extent that I feel I am not inflicted with it now. My fasting and PP are 102 and 130 respectively.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: There is a little trouble here. You have to go down a bit by levels. How long would it take to come down your blood sugar levels?

Caller I: I think within one month.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: Would you cut down only 10 points in one month? Let we do it quickly for you. Have you reduced your drugs or not?

Caller I: I am taking tablets twice a day.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: What you have to do is to talk to our diabetes educators. Add diabetall to treatment. As your levels will come down below 120 you ought to begin stopping the drugs having cut down their dosage. Have you tasted sweet joy till now or not?

Caller I: No, not yet.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: Go for it. Give us feedback how to improve it for stirring more sweetness to your life. Talk to our diabetes educators instantly.

Caller I: My condition was worse to such extent that I became bed-ridden. I felt that my life is wasted now. I was nervous while feeling that some other problem may also hit me.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: What’s your age, Sudha ji?

Caller I: Mine is 50, sir.                

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: Since how long have you been a diabetic?

Caller I: It has been 2 years.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: What were your blood sugar levels when you visited the doctor?   

Caller I: Those were 550.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: Glucometer shows high instead of showing the number. No one can walk with such a high number of blood sugar levels so its automatic to go bed-ridden. Fatigue or tiredness hits.

Caller I: I relieved very much and I believed that diabetes is not threatening.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: We are informing the same as diabetes is not threatening. Just follow the path shown by us. As soon as possible, bring yourself in safe zone and stop taking drugs.

Caller I: Earlier, I used to think to do any work but I was incapable of doing do. But now, I don’t feel so. I feel active throughout the day.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: Were you overweight earlier? Do you feel any difference?

Caller I: My weight is around 75 or 80 kg now, but it was 90 kg earlier. I joined the gym also which made the difference.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: We always inform our patients that weight training is very important for insulin sensitization.

Caller I: My son has a gym where I do exercise. He got inspiration from me to commence his own gym. 

Host: When the levels, brought down to the safe zone, become exaggerated and out of control then the condition becomes critical to tackle.  

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: We always tell our viewers that we can reverse the diabetes but if you go back to the stage of severity then you can slip back to the severe stage. You have to follow the lifestyle strictly since it’s a very hazardous disease that it will attack you with more intensity. You ought to take care of your health but carry on your life with control instead of leaving on the chance.

Host: As experienced by our earlier caller, she shed her weight while doing work out in gym. Does the weight loss affect a lot to the health of a diabetic?           

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: You can talk to our all diabetes patients. Some have shed 5 or 10 or 15 kg till 30 kg. Just control your diabetes and normalize your blood sugar level. Your health will begin to improve and the body begins to retain its shape and ideal weight. This is the most exciting part of this protocol that we teach to people.  

Host: O, it means it is essential to important how we are affecting our activities or aren’t we stabilizing our active life.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: I want to correct you here. We are not stabilizing our active life but denying it not to be sedentary. But, as I always say, as much fat will deposit on your abdomen as more invitations will be sent to diabetes. So, be cautious and stay away from such condition; take care of your food habit and examine your blood sugar levels or go for the HBA1C test essentially. If it will exaggerate then you will be died due to organ damage. As being conscious and focused, go for HBA1C test once in three months.

Caller II: I am Sheila Khare. I was operated in December for uterus disorder. I was critical and was on insulin but later, I dropped insulin having taken your food supplement and now, I want to stop taking medicine.     

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: Sheila ji, what’s your age?

Caller II: 67

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: And from where are you speaking?

Caller II: I am speaking from Bellandur district of Bangalore.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: Please inform us in detail about your uterus problem.

Caller II: Just a year has been passed since I was operated. Earlier, my sugar level was upto 200 before operation. Then, I went through robotic operation. My sugar level was unstable for 2 or 3 months. Thereafter, I continued your food supplements from January to stop allopathic medicines. I took diabetplus from January. I continued it for 4 to 5 months which helped me to drop insulin.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: How much insulin did you inject before?

Caller II: When I was operated, I used to take 25 then, 20 insulin and afterwards 16. I don’t go to doctor now because I am connected to you. Now, I have become friend of your medicines. I placed order for diabetplus through my daughter who is in Delhi. Thence, I started ordering myself. My level while fasting was 104 or 110 and PP used to be 150 or 140 or 160 sometimes. Those levels did not come down. Thus, I asked for ‘Diabetall’. Now, I am taking both. Yesterday, my level of fasting was marked as 110 and 140 as PP.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: Your levels are still high. You have to do hard work. Since when have you started Diabetall?

Caller II: It has been one and half month when I started it.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: You ought to talk to our diabetes educators and check whether there is any problem in food or not. There is some problem somewhere.

Caller II: I drop pills some times since I think that my sugar level has come down.         

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: The levels must be come down. You can’t stop taking it. You ought not to stop the food supplement since the blood sugar level will shoot up and it takes time to control it. Glucometer is your friend. You have to check your blood sugar level and pay attention to your food also.

Caller II: My daughter is also suffering from diabetes. I advised her to take diabetplus.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: you ought to do some benefit of your daughter as well.

Caller II: I gained energy. I do exercises as per direction mentioned in the chart. I have morning walker as well which I use.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: You ought to stop using it. Do walking in real.

Caller II: But I have problem in my knee. I can’t walk smoothly.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: Then, have you taken arthritplus? 

Caller II: I don’t have enough money.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: But you can do cycling at least.

Caller II: We, both, are retired.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: Pay attention to exercise and cycling. Cycling will reduce your knee pain since your muscles will become strong. So, install a stationary cycle at your home. Thus, your diabetes will be relieved a bit. Don’t ignore it. You ought to keep your sugar levels below 120 and don’t stop taking food supplements. And talk to diabetes educator which is free of cost. Thus, improve your condition taking support of their advice. Have you tasted Sweet joy or not?  

Caller II: I take sugar free.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: Sugar free is harmful, do you know it? We prohibited taking it but still you take it. You are causing more harm to you.

Caller II: No, no. I don’t take sugar free every day. I drink tea without sugar. And for now, I have stopped taking tea. Now, I have started taking buttermilk, coconut water.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: If you want sweetness to have then you ought to take Sweet joy. But you ought not to take artificial sweetener absolutely since it will cause more harm and exaggerate your diabetes.

Host: Please give our viewers the tip of the day.

Dr. Gaurav Sharma: I want to discuss one thing. We all are participating in rat race. Rat’s physical fitness is examined in the laboratories. We all are like rats who hurry to our work place for doing work and then, come back at home. But we don’t know why are we doing this? Just 5 % people are there in the world who have distinctive approach and 95 % people are part of rat –race. They become inflicted with diseases. They have to look for an option. The person who listens to his heart and follow the path directed by his soul, he would get the way for sure via courage and determination.  Patience and trust are essential.
