Meat-Eating Causes Diabetes

According to Dr. Michael Gregor and other sources I will mention throughout this article, meat eating is linked to pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes and possibly type 1 diabetes.  Though meat maybe part of a low-carb eating meal plan for many of those struggling with diabetes, because meat is all protein and no carbohydrates, meat is in fact the reason diabetes continues to be rampant in the United States.  This is because meat creates an accumulation of fat in our muscle cells, causing insulin resistance from fat toxicity. This is not just any fat, but saturated animal fat which interferes with the action of insulin, the hormone that controls our sugar levels. The pancreas that releases insulin becomes overwhelmed by the toxic fat in the muscles, and releases more insulin that is not getting into the cells to give the body energy and control blood sugar. In the video posted below Dr. Gregor explains the connection fat toxicity has with the pancreas and the liver.

“The Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine,” (third edition) by Michael Murray and Joseph Pizzorno states, “A diet high in saturated fat (mostly animal fats) and trans-fatty acids produces cell membranes that are much less fluid in nature than the cell membranes of people who eat optimal levels of monounsaturated fats deriving from nuts, seeds, olive oil, avocados, and other plant based fats. The book goes on to explain that these monounsaturated plant based fats improve insulin response, while saturated fats add too much cholesterol to the cell membranes and confuse the bodies response to insulin. Again, insulin is the hormone responsible for delivering energy to the cells to control blood sugar. Insulin does this by transporting all the important vitamins, nutrients, proteins, and neurotransmitters across the cells. When Insulin cannot be delivered to the cell (insulin resistance) blood sugar builds up and causes cell oxidation and inflammation throughout the body that can be life threatening.

As a type 1 diabetic I have injected insulin for 10 years after I was told  at age 16 that my pancreas no longer was able to release insulin (in type 2 diabetics the pancreas releases insulin, but the body doesn’t know how to utilize it, aka insulin resistance) to control blood sugar in the food I ate. In 2016 my eleventh year of diabetes I went vegetarian while still having cheese and yogurt and noticed that every time I checked my blood sugar, it was within range and remained steady without the use of synthetic insulin injections. I didn’t know the science behind this “miracle” I was experiencing. It wasn’t until towards the end of the year I ran into Michael Gregors nutrition fact videos on youtube as well as Michael Murray’s book where the science was laid out.
