Many people are probably unaware they have diabetes. Even with unreported cases, the CDC estimates that almost 30 million people in the United States are living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. More frightening still is the estimate that by 2050, 33% of the population will have diabetes, according to the NY Times best-selling book, “Mastering Diabetes” by diabetes experts, Khambatta and Barbaro (2020).

With diabetes comes the potential for many other serious diseases and health complications, not to mention challenges, lower quality of life, financial strain, emotional distress, frustration and a sense of lack of control.

The good news is that type 2 diabetes is reversible with easy changes in diet. In simple terms, diabetes is caused by reduced insulin sensitivity. In non-diabetics, where insulin sensitivity is normal, insulin delivers glucose via the bloodstream to tissues in the body, such as muscles and liver. This is used for energy; without this process we would die. In people with type 2 diabetes, insulin is not able to deliver glucose into tissues because fat is essentially blocking those “doors.” That is called insulin resistance. This is why reversing type 2 diabetes is possible. Eliminating all processed and animal foods (including dairy), saturated fats, refined grains and sugars, oils, and trans fats while switching to a whole-food, plant-based diet that includes lots of fruits and vegetables, beans, rice, quinoa, legumes, starches like potatoes, greens, etc., with a maximum 15% fat intake (fat from natural sources such as avocados, nuts, coconuts, etc., not processed or animal sources) has proven to be the healthiest way to reverse type 2 diabetes. Why? Because a low-fat lifestyle that includes fruits and vegetables is more conducive to better insulin sensitivity.

To be clear, type 2 diabetes is different from type 1 and type 1.5. In type 2 diabetes the pancreas still has the capability to produce and secrete insulin (even though it may be out of control). Type 1 diabetes and type 1.5 diabetes are both autoimmune conditions where the body destroys the pancreas’ ability to produce enough insulin to sustain life. However, multiple studies have demonstrated that insulin resistance is reversible for all types of diabetes (prediabetes, type 1, type 1.5, type 2 and gestational) with the same low-fat, whole-food, plant-based diet. Of course, you should always consult your healthcare practitioner.
