    It really comes down to the concept of potential energy in thermodynamics.
    I.e. another definition of diabetes may be a total P.E. of sugar in the
    body/lb. greater than X calories. The body has torouble converting the P.E.
    effectively. I had an interesting experience 25 years ago in college; I ate
    a pizza with a lot of cheese and olive oil in the crust. With a large soda,
    I started urinating profusely all night. I tested my urine and saw massive
    sugar, and indication of Type I diabetes. However, I got back to normal by
    noon the next day. I think that particular combo of pizza ingredients (i.e.
    heavy cheese ,olive oil, and also soda) is very scary and very dangerous.

    Why can’t American’s use mmol/l now? It’s a widely used measure in medicine
    and pharmaceuticals all around the World.

    (Type 1 Diabetic here. Had Diabetes for 22 years.

    Very interesting and well presented. BUT, and there is always a but, I
    think that you should mention that kale and other brassica varieties
    contain large amounts of vitamins A and K Which when taken in large amounts
    can be harmful A being fat soluble, toxicity can build and K being a
    clotting agent can be harmful when having to take blood thinning tablets.
    Please correct me if I am wrong? I particularly like the comment at 13.33
    “why don`t doctors know this?” Doctors are simply pill pushers, most if not
    all them know nothing about nutrition. (Stated from personal experiences)

    Who on Earth has marked this video with a thumbs-down?
    This is free, interesting, and factual information, brought to us without
    adverts or info-mercials !!

    Forewarned is forearmed.

    This chap has posted this for our benefit, not as some a money making
    effort, so please “youtubers”, a little respect.

    I’m glad Eric Berg has posted this video, I’ve learned some things and I
    can now address some matters in my life.

    Let’s all be a little more gracious folks ….
    Thanks Eric :-)

    I enjoyed your Video. What do you think about the latest research that
    pinpoints diabetes is cause by the hormone amylin which can cover the cells
    in the pancreas and starve them of nutrients. Maybe the need is for a
    substance that can alter the formation of amylin in the pancreas would be
    helpful. I have found dark chocolate to reduce my Insulin intake by 50%. I
    have discussed this with the medical staff in NZ. They simply don’t know
    the answer yet.

    +angel time>>>I feel worried about constantly checking blood levels being a
    former diabetes sufferer imagined I would undoubtedly die with diabetes>>>>

    At 9:00-9:35, I find that this guy was incorrect about type 2 diabetes as
    being a problem with the liver. It’s not just the liver. And even if
    there’s no problem with the liver, people can still have type 2 diabetes.
    And in most cases, the problem is the body cells like muscles cell and fats
    cell not capable enough to be able to respond to the insulin for the need
    to get sugar out of the bloodstream and to give body the energy it need.
    The liver does control blood sugar when you don’t eat, but if the pancreas
    put out too much insulin which causes weight gain and the body does not
    respond to it, the fasting glucose will be high even if there’s no problem
    with the liver.

    very good teacher

  • Cintia Spataro

    Thank you so much. This is wonderfully lectured :)

  • SoothedBySound

    What if you are hypothyroid? Don’t you have to be careful about consuming
    large amounts of vegetables such as kale?

  • joe smoe

    great video! helping me put the puzzle pieces together. love that feeling.

  • Megan McDonald

    What are some options besides kale that aren’t goiterogenic? I did loads of
    kale after watching this video last year and it killed my thyroid levels.
    Had to go off of that family of veggies and my thyroid levels returned to
    normal. Thank goodness. But I’d still like to get as much potassium per day
    from food – aside from the fact that the supplements are only available in
    99mg doses! What do you suggest?

    Thank you so much for this terrific breakdown of logic and simple to follow
    explanation of the liver and its importance. I suffered 2/3 loss of my
    liver in 1993 due to a parasitic invasion. I was diagnosed with Diabetes in
    2004 in my early 30’s. I was showing all the symptoms but had no idea, I
    had 4 young children and figured I was just really tired, a single parent
    wonder woman. I love to read and mostly “brain food” reading so I went to
    work on learning all I could about my diabetes. I have felt all along that
    my liver issues of the past fed into my diabetes. My sugars rage. My mood
    swings are horrible, and now I am entering my menopause years.. nearing 50
    years old my eyes are in dire condition. Blindness is swiftly coming upon
    me. Terror is strong. I am consumed by fear of not seeing the faces of
    those dear to me. Thanks to the aid of the internet, I am reeducating
    myself with a vengeance. This video is by far the best information I have
    seen or even read about. I have started to see the Growth and IGF
    Hermione’s as vastly underrated in the flood of information in controlling
    Diabetes and working with ones body to find a balance to aid optimum
    health, through exercise and correct nutrition. I have also been to several
    vague classes that left me nearly as uninformed as when I paid to start
    them. A few classes and $$$ later I found myself on the hunt to learn..so
    much hints or edges around what you put together here so neatly. Reminds
    me of that saying about if its hard to explain you don’t understand it well
    enough. You clearly do understand, and now so do I. THANK YOU!!!

    Thanks doc. This is the best diabetes explained video I’ve ever come
    across.

    One doubt:- Is diabetes a disease or is it a functional disorder?
    Please clarify for the benefit of all the readers.

    For example, bronchitis is a functional disorder
    in respiration; it is not a disease. 

  • orchid lover

    is this boring,,,or what,,,Id like to watch,,,,but Id rather nail my toes
    to the floor,,,would be less painful,,

  • Mukund Chaskar

    Thanks Dr.Berg. Video was very helpful to understand the basics.
    Could you pl inform the name of the Book u had written ? Where it’s
    available ?

  • Angie Doodle

    Excellent Video, thanks very much as always very informative Dr Berg. xx

  • KetoBabe

    One of the primary abnormalities one sees in type 2 diabetics is increased
    production of glucose by the liver. (hepatic insulin resistance) 

  • KetoBabe

    The body processes toxins in the liver using different biochemical pathways.
    kale, broccoli, cabbage and Brussels sprouts contain glucosinolates and
    other nutrients that supports the Glutathione conjugation, the glycine
    conjugation and Glucuronidation detoxification pathways of ones liver.
    Foods that contain sulfur such as eggs, garlic and onions support the
    sulfation pathway of ones liver.
    These pathways detoxify chemicals, toxic metals, antibiotics, alcohol,
    caffeine, aspirin, acetaminophen, estrogen, testosterone from ones body.
    These pathways are supported by vitamins, minerals and specific amino acids
    such as zinc, copper, magnesium, selenium, B vitamins, iron, glutathione,
    L-glutamine, Cysteine, and alkaline forming foods.( arginase an enzyme in
    the liver works best at a very alkaline or base pH of 9.5 to 9.9)
    The over the counter pain killer called acetaminophen is very damaging to
    the liver as it drops glutathione levels needed for the liver to detoxify
    and protect itself.

    Its amazing video doc. You made it so simple to understand.

  • Helen Peebles

    Once you focus on the ‘Root Cause’ of your Diabetes — *you instantly start
    seeing Diabetes from a different perspective* — instead of “Medication” and
    “fighting the symptoms,” you start thinking about “Health” and treating the
    cause.

  • Nick F

    No way this guy is an actual physician 

  • bwelc00

    It comes down the same things every time. Cut your carbs very low, eat your
    veggies get some exercise. Where is this a mystery?
