  • I have reactive hypoglycemia. Anytime I eat potatoes or rice my B.S. dips into the low 20s leaving my extremely disoriented. I like being vegan but I'm having a hard time finding a staple I can feed my family on the regular. Any thoughts?

  • Hi there, this is an unrelated post to the video in question but it seems the best way to contact is through a message below a video. My question: is there any science on whether there is a risk to children raised vegan from birth of developing egg allergies?

  • Yeah, you don't have to turn into a dogmatic, militant, angry health nut to get healthy.
    Just adapt to a few better eating habits. Cut way down on meat, dairy, and processed junk.
    Reach for more fruits, veggies, seeds & nuts. Oh, and beans!

  • Excellent video 🙂 I was Type 2 diabetic… When I was diagnosed I looked at my diet and found that I was still eating all of the foods that I grew up with… All of the sugar, meats and crap… I decided to throw out my Mother's and Grandmother's Cookbook and build my own… I have been slowly writing my own book… "Change the Menu and Change your Life"… Now I am no longer Diabetic but I still have the odd craving for meats… Being that a purely vegetarian diet lacks some elements my body still craves their sources… Meat… So, what to do…??? We cannot get everything we need from one source… There are some things we can get only from meat sources… That's why, as a bit of a "Prepper", I make and store "Pemmican"… I am turned onto a High Fat Diet, Low carbs and moderate Proteins… Even my Pemmican is an example of that… I do not use the traditional recipe, but adjust it to my current diet… Instead or 50/50 meat to fat, I use 25/75 meat to fat and about 15% Berries and additions… I dunno… Maybe you could do some research into my recipe… 🙂

  • i was 600lbs morbidly obese then I listened to durianrider's advice and drank 3 liters of sprite a day to lose weight. 6 weeks later I am now 170lbs weight at 9%bodyfat! I am competing in my first natural physique contest this weekend.

  • Dr Greger – can you look into modern day wheat – and discuss the big controversy about how there is really no organic wheat anymore – (they say)- and uncover lies and truths on this subject please?

  • Dr Greger. In 2008 the NEJM studies reported that they know the components that cause type 1 diabetes.
    1) genetic predisposition (you cannot get an auto-immune condition that isn't in your genes)
    2) intestinal permeability (causes of: gliadin from barley wheat and rye, glyphosate and all grains etc…)
    3) Bovine protein introduced before the first 3 years of age. (the antigen that gets into the blood that engages the immune system, collateral damage occurs when the immune system mistakes your beta cells instead of the bovine) Bovine and Beta Cells are structurally similar on a molecular level and that is why your immune system cannot tell the difference and attacks you instead of the antigen.
    4) chromium/vanadium deficiencies
    And PubMed.gov reports multiple studies that link the MMR vaccine to the onset of type 1 (auto-immune) diabetes.
    Thank you for finally announcing this 2008 information. No other doctors will even talk about the cause. So it is no wonder that eliminating the cause will reverse disease in some patients. (cause being Dairy and all grains and avoiding vaccines that engage your immune system.
    Thanks for finally bringing this to light.

  • Great video!! I was wondering what your position is with regards to Indigenous people with diabetes? In Canada diabetes rates for Indigenous peoples is reaching 10.3% off reserve and 17.2% on reserve. What the Canadian Diabetes Association and the National Aboriginal Diabetes Association promote is of course low-carb, but also traditional which includes hunting and eating animals and a lot of the blame for these growing rates is placed on refined carbs. Some research has also pointed to a possible increased sensitivity to glucose that Indigenous peoples may possess that has lead to Canadian health organizations pushing low carb for these populations. In addition there is also the influence of social determinants of health that would make implementing a plant based diet difficult for remote fly in communities where growing seasons are short and flying in food is expensive. On top of that there is the cultural element as well where veganism is seen as colonial, and hunting is seen as traditional. It's tough to unpack all of this. Is plant based a good option for Indigenous people?
    Thank you!

  • not all plant based diets are created equal. I'm sure you're talking about whole food unprocessed plant based diets as opposed to highly refined high carb high processed oil high coconut oil plant based diet. it's also assume that the plant based diet has sufficient EPA and DHA. some people lack the enzyme to convert flax oil to DHA. so without enough EPA and DHA you're probably die from cardiovascular disease before you get diabetes

  • Are you supposed to avoid fruits and roots? Im a bit confused? My dads 2hr post eating fruit(banana or papaya) is still over 200mg/dL and it makes him really dizzy.

  • This guy doesn't know what he is talking about–I am someone who had been eating VERY CLEAN OVER THE PAST 12 YEARS (like paleo–no processed foods, only complex carbs, good quality meats and healthy fats). I then became hypothyroid and TRIED the vegan diet, only to discover that on top of this, I ended up with SO many health issues over time, with that diet (IT WAS A CLEAN VEGAN DIET) that I BECAME a Type 2 over the course of 3 years (I only know this as was having ongoing bloodwork done because I was hypothyroid)!! I went on the Ketogenic diet and my blood sugar came down tremendously within 3 weeks and I lost 30 pounds over 5 months!!!

    PEOPLE, NONE OF THESE"EXPERTS" KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT!! Now, after being on the Keto Diet for 18 months, am having some issues as a woman with sleep and anxiety.

    I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE LONG TERM ANSWER IS BUT I DO KNOW THAT ALL OF THESE "EXPERTS" ARE ANNOYING — AS THEY ARE ALMOST ALWAYS MEN–they simply seem to be unable to acknowledge the physiological difference between men and women … and how these various type diets work DIFFERENTLY on men and women…and probably SO many other factors involved!!!!

  • I’m vegan – and now at 55 I’m becoming insulin resistant! I’m 5’5” and 125lbs. Exercise every day! Active! Don’t eat processed or fried foods. So your theory here doesn’t work for all!

  • I am 64 years old and I discovered I have diabetes ten months ago. I can`t believe that I`ve got diabetic issues and it worries me that I will also experience the same struggles like my father did. Uncovered this excellent info “amazing fivu com” (Google it). The main test outcomes reveal that my glucose was at 183 and my A1C was 7.3. After a week of reading the plan, I have managed to decrease my A1C to 5.9.

  • When it comes to information about overall health and also diabetes treatment, I have found this “amazing fivu com” (Google it) easy to understand and extremely good. Aside from being easy to follow, this diet plan as well as lifestyle transformation won`t stress you about carb or calorie tracking! After shifting into a healthier and greener way of living, I did not just lose fat but also I`m also free of diabetes and also high blood pressure! The guide can certainly help you cure diabetes.

  • I don't think it's a good idea to present the video "how not to die from diabetes" with that sarcastic tone. It's a sensitive issue, so that telemarketing attitude is a bit inappropriate, in my opinion.
