Prediabetes drug increases risk of diabetes!

Raise your hand if your doctor has ordered a blood test to check your glucose. Most do, whether or not you have symptoms of diabetes. If your fasting blood sugar is 125 mgm/dL or above you are considered a diabetic. But if your number comes in between 108 and 125 they’ll say you have “prediabetes.”  That’s a condition where your cells have a resistance to the hormone insulin. Your body uses insulin to put glucose into your cells where it can provide energy. But with insulin resistance, your cells are slow to take up glucose. It builds up in your blood.  Over a lifetime, 70-75% of people diagnosed with prediabetes will progress to diabetes. If your doctor tells you that you’re prediabetic, he or she will almost certainly put you on Big Pharma’s metformin. You may know it as Glucophage. It’s a huge blockbuster drug. Over 120 million people take it to try to control their blood sugar. But like so many of Big Pharma’s “cures,” metformin creates more problems than it solves. In fact, it makes it even more likely that you’ll develop full-blown diabetes!  Let me explain… Metformin has a load of side effects. One of those side effects is especially worrisome. Research shows that metformin leads to lower levels of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) for people with an underactive thyroid.1 Researchers studied data from over 74,000 people taking metformin over 25 years. Compared to another diabet...

The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between serum 25(OH)D concentration and the risk of ASCVD in Chinese, especially in Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients.METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: Based on the "REACTION" study conducted in 2011, some 9,014 Lanzhou residents aged 40-75 years were followed from 2014 to 2016. A total of 7,061 with complete data were analyzed. Baseline...

J Nutr Sci Vitaminol (Tokyo). 2021;67(5):266-272. doi: 10.3177/jnsv.67.266.ABSTRACTLow 25 hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels are closely associated with the risk of cardiovascular disease. Vitamin D deficiency is more common in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus than in the general population. In addition, vitamin D status is lower in patients with the metabolic syndrome than in those without the syndrome. Therefore, we examined the association between lipid profiles and 25(OH)D levels. In this case control study, 285 type 2 diabetic patients who attended the Manda Memorial Hospital from March to October 2017 were selec...
