Help for Diabetes

Page has shown a direct relationship between high blood sugar levels and calcium levels and an abnormally low phosphorus level.   This situation occurs when the insulin level is too low.  His studies with many diabetic patients showed that the blood sugar, calcium and phosphorus levels improved with a diet of mostly animal protein and fat and fresh vegetables, that is eliminating all high glycemic foods, fructose, caffeine and alcohol.  While insulin may still be required, the dose will probably be much less on such a diet.  Dr. Atkin's New Diet Revolution or Neanderthin are two good books on this subject.

In addition, new research points to Vitamin D deficiency in many autoimmune diseases such as insulin-dependent diabetes.  Have your Vitamin D level checked and if it's lower than 30, your doctor will recommend supplementation with oral Vitamin D3.
