Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines | Sarah Hallberg | TEDxPurdueU

Can a person be “cured” of Type 2 Diabetes? Dr. Sarah Hallberg provides compelling evidence that it can, and the solution is simpler than you might think.

Dr. Sarah Hallberg is the Medical Director of the Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program at IU Health Arnett, a program she created. She is board certified in both obesity medicine and internal medicine and has a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology. She has recently created what is only the second non-surgical weight loss rotation in the country for medical students. Her program has consistently exceeded national benchmarks for weight loss, and has been highly successful in reversing diabetes and other metabolic diseases. Dr. Hallberg is also the co-author of www.fitteru.us, a blog about health and wellness.

  • Do your research independently and you will quickly find the same as i have. "Numerous studies bear out the value of physical activity and exercise in improving insulin sensitivity."

  • Thank you. I am a believer in doctor Berstein, all diabetics should have his book.

  • Even a greater reason why that commenter's logic is totally flawed. Thank you for the clarification! (This is in reference to a commenter pointing out that Dr. Atkin's died in his 70's of heart failure, but commenter Tanya Robinson pointed out that Dr. Atkins actually died of a congenial heart disease.)

  • Any 'first year' interested college student,….can teach how and why insulin works…especially with respect to carbohydrates.
    Diabetes is a disease of naivete now….not genetics….for the most part.

    Stop eating "processed food"…stay in the "outside isles" of the supermarket…and eat clean meats, butter….cured!

  • great information! Tfsharing.

  • Great presentation of a great truth. Look at the ADA's funding sources.

  • I'm an insulin-dependent type 2 diabetic. I have been eating low-carb for almost a month now. I stopped taking insulin before every meal because inevitably my sugar level would dip too low, and I'd have to eat carbs. It was a vicious cycle! I still take the slow-release insulin at night, however. I completely agree with Dr. Hallberg's approach and know the information is accurate. However, my blood sugar level is still way too high after meals in spite of my cutting carbs. I am also in ketosis, which doesn't make sense because my glucose is too high. I've lost only 7 pounds, and that was after two weeks. So for the past week-and-a-half, I've lost nothing. Not sure what to do, but I certainly don't want to consult my endocrinologist — the doctor who keeps telling me I need to eat 45 grams of carbs with each meal!

  • Gee, you mean that a sensible, balanced diet and a disciplined regiment of physical training will prevent diabetes, among other illnesses? You don't say.

  • With traditional treatments, diabetes can never be cured permanently. Fortunately there is a proven scientific technique to cure diabetes naturally>> Diabetescureonline*com >>

  • reversed t2d in about 3 months doing this.. also dropped weight and bad cholesterol tanked.. whats not to like? look if nibbling on arugula worked for you then do that. if staring mindlessly at blue fire hydrants daily for fifteen minutes worked for you then do that.. keeping insulin low worked for me.. and will also work for virtually anyone with insulin resistance

  • Carbs are not essential? This is a correction from text books? You NEED fiber which is a carb and need carbs! Gluconepgenisis is a taxing process and INcreases chances of diabetes

  • very low carb diets are wonderful for reducing the symptoms of diabetes. however. .. . especially with exercise, your thyroid will be affected by the lack of carbs in the long run.

  • love her !

  • My friend advised this “fizo amazing plan” (Google it) for my weight and diabetes. I had been following a strict and doing exercise on a regular basis. After one day on the diet my blood sugar was lower about 35 points, and by day 4 it was lower about 60 points. It does work and it enhanced my condition. I can’t be more happy having my blood sugar in a good level already.

  • She's not explaining the difference in high-density carbs vs low-density carbs. This is key, and is what Dr Sears published in his zone diet back in, I think, 1995!!

  • Thanks very much Sarah for the great, bold advice with proof, will follow and pass on the message to the needy and point to this talk!!!

  • I could watch and listen to her speak about anything forever. She is good ! Thank you.

  • This sounds similar to the Dukan Diet

  • The first 60 seconds is completely wrong so how can I trust the rest. Calories in/Calories out. Learn your body's calories out and feed appropriate calories in.

  • This speech doesn't give any solutions for diabetics just a common speech every one did before

  • Does Hybetez Remedy (google it) help me cleanse my high blood pressure issue inherently ? I notice many people keep on speaking about this high blood pressure secret remedy.

  • Alot of the negative comments that are coming from people that dont know that everybodies body chemistry is different and that all diets dont work for the same people find what works for you and Go for it try it out dont rely on BIG PHARMA

  • Anyone know what is Hybetez Remedy about? I hear a lot of people cleanse their cholesterol issue naturally with this diabetes secret remedy.

  • Isn't another widely accepted prejudice, lack of intelligence?

  • We have this disease because we eat too much, and our lives are too stationary. Through most of human history this is not the case. There was more natural food which was much much leaner, and people use their bodies more in everyday life and survival. It's very simple.

  • I was obese or morbidly obese since puberty. At 53 I had a "normal" bmi since I was 14! What a weird feeling. I am so insulin resistant. I am so so apple shaped even after losing 170lbs!
