  9. I'm 29 and prediabetic. Without giving too much detail, the work I do causes me to sweat a lot and lose water. I was told I was dehydrated. But the liter of water a day doesn't really help. Most people say don't drink more than 2 Liters a day but I notice that when I drink a gallon of water within a 24-hour span, I get my blood sugars under control.

  10. These videos are designed to scare people, just eat right, get plenty of nature – plenty of water and cut out the junk food , use this recipe for life in general

  11. So where are the recipes…… and this is just an ad

  12. Diabetes is actually an insulin resistance disease that is reversible, not "chronic". Just need to eat healthy and exercise, don't worry about the calories, just do a low carb. no sugar diet. Lot's of green vegetables, nuts, grass fed meats and fish!

  13. That was MOSTLY fluff, in that no new info or step-by-step info given. 😑

  14. There is not a thing on that table with food that this diabetic will eat. Btw diabetes makes you fat, not the other way around–get it straight will you

  19. Listen to Indian doctors. These white fools only want you to take there medicine so they can make money. 
    Indian doctors know how to get rid of diabetes thats cos they have a good heart and ain't fucked up like these evil psycopathic greedy white cunts.

  20. Useless. He says "lose weight." hahaha If people knew HOW to lose weight, there'd be no problem! Duhh. Watch videos by Dr. Jason Fung. He'll tell you how to lose weight and KEEP IT OFF! You can reverse your diabetes–doesn't matter if you've had it for 30 years and are on 200 units of insulin a day. Fasting is the key. People, please. Don't rely on your doctor, the AHA, American Diabetes Assoc., etc. They are funded by big pharma and their advice will KILL you. Watch Dr. Fung, watch Dr. Berry. Save your own life.

  21. Shows pictures of watermelon…I can’t eat watermelon…

  22. What a load of bullshit. The cause of diabetes is not high blood sugar but insulin resistance. High blood sugar is only the symptom. Focus on treating the root cause.

  23. What a waste of a video. Told me nothing.

  24. This sucks I’m 13 almost 14 and I have type 2 diabetes and I am very embarrassed by it

  27. I am so sick and very discussed when Doctors say about obesity that causes type 2 diabetes – BS.. It's a LIE! -I have lost a lot of weight and muscle mass. I look like a scarecrow. I wanna gain weight I've been struggling …with High Cal and low carbs and true dietary fats..I have also been eating more fiber such as beans too.
