[Discovered!] The REAL Cause of Diabetes?
Diabetes can be a maddening disease.
You try to eat healthy… you take your prescription drugs… and you still might not get your blood sugar numbers where you want them.
And that’s when you start to wonder… are we attacking this disease the wrong way?
Well, we might be.
There’s an odd gut issue that may actually be at the root of your type 2 diabetes.
Fixing this condition may be the key to getting your blood sugar under control.
The only problem? Nobody is talking about it.
In a study published in the journal Nature Metabolism, researchers examined 40 obese people — half had type 2 diabetes, and the other half didn’t.
They found that there was a big difference in the bacteria between people with and without diabetes. More specifically, people with type 2 diabetes had bacteria in places it’s not supposed to be.
This included places that are key to regulating your metabolism: the liver and in the fatty areas connecting the stomach and colon.
This misplaced bacteria likely causes the body to mount an inflammatory response that hinders insulin from being able to properly regulate blood sugar levels.
In other words… it may be a root cause of your problems with insulin and blood sugar.
So how did the bacteria get there?
This study didn’t look into that, but there seems to be a logical answer:
Your body has an intestinal barrier that’s supposed to prevent harmful bacteria and pathogens from entering the bloodstream.
When that barrier becomes compromised—appropriately called “leaky gut”—bacteria and pathogens leak out of your gut, and can contribute to all manner to problems in your body.
Problems with insulin—and the resulting type 2 diabetes—are part of it.
Previous studies have shown that obese people are more likely to experience leaky gut.
If you’re diabetic or pre-diabetic, don’t just look at your blood sugar levels. They only tell part of the story.
Talk to your doctor about your gut health—and taking steps to improve it.
You’ll be amazed at the difference it will make—both in terms of diabetes, and your overall health.
