Type 2 diabetes may be caused by gut bacteria

Studying gut bacteria can reveal a range of human illness. Now, new research shows that the composition of a person’s intestinal bacteria could play an important role in the development of type 2 diabetes. These results, from a joint European and Chinese research team, have just been published in the journal Nature.Production: Lasse Foghsgaard Mathias NielsenPhotography: Mathias NielsenSpeak: Carl Hagman

  1. Sir I am suffering from diabetes. In past about 7years sinus exhausted me.What is relation between them.

  2. I see a lot of people keep on talking about Hybetez Remedy (search on google). But I'm uncertain if it is good. Have you ever tried this popular hypertension home remedy?

  3. If a person stops eating the standard American diet and switches over to a whole plant based food diet then their gut bacteria will become very improved with the beneficial bacteria in more abundance and with a large decrease in the bad bacteria population. People who have switched over to the true vegan diet have reversed their diabetic condition.

  4. The pharmaceutical industries are trying to suck more money from diabetes victims by selling supplements that just give short term effects.

  5. Here is my problem.. I think when Monsanto move into a country, obesity rates rise. I have a problem with wheat flours & it didn't happen gradually. It happened all in 1 day & I believe that, that was the 1st bread I ate baked from genetically modified wheat & the same for somebody else I know. That's where the problem started & now sugar has also become a problem. I suspect the government knows but they keep quiet. I'm convinced our wheat is genetically modified & who knows what else is being covered up. Governments can be bought! The minute I eat too much wheat / sugar it triggers a sinus driven migraine that can last 1 -5 days & no signs of diabetes at all. Still working on that one. Even oats is a problem. Possibly it destroys healthy gut bacteria & because it is no longer there It cannot break it down properly. I think everything begins in the gut & all these chemicals, food additives and GMO"s are altering our gut bacteria.

  6. He said ones own gut bacteria is hard to grow and populate, perhaps they should look into doing such on a more personal individual level, involving ones own urine, just a thought.

  7. Hey! Well this is an interesting take on it all. But, have you examined – the Curesal Rapid Diabetes Reversal program (do a search for it on GOOGLE)? I have heard some extraordinary things about it. My nephew got magnificent progress in developing a consistant and easy eating pattern that quickly reversed glucose levels with it. I am diabetic also (type 2) and I have just started it myself. 🙂

  8. When you have Type 1 diabetes, You could radically decrease or even completely remove your dependence on insulin

  9. Oh hello! Have you considered – the Curesal Rapid Diabetes Reversal program (Have a quick look on GOOGLE – cant remember the place now)? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my BF got nice changes in glucose meter readings from it. 

  10. Surely the cause has been understood for a long time. Diet/ junk food/ too much carbohydrate. Sugar consumption has gone up and so has the rates of Diabetes. I thought this was well known? Am I wrong?

  11. Its likely the bad gut bacteria is a result of excessive carbohydrate intake.

  12. Hi jorgipogi. I am not sure exactly what technology you are referring to, But I am sure you can find the information in the news release or in the scientific article published in Nature – there are links to both in the video description.

    Best regards, University of Copenhagen Communications.

  13. What is the technology?
