Dr. Gurpreet Padda and his team treat at the intersection of the pain epidemic, opioid epidemic, and the diabetes epidemic. Tune in for an informative conversation between Maggie Kelly and Dr. Gurpreet Padda as he discusses these interrelated pathologies and the… Continue reading Reversing Disease
About 30 million people in the US have diabetes, of these; about one 8 million don’t know that they have it. Early diagnosis of diabetes can help in the treatment and possibly reversal of diabetes. But what is diabetes reversal? Diabetes reversal is similar to long-term diabetes remission. As much as it is not a… Continue reading Reversing Diabetes; What Does and Doesn’t Work
The very mention of a ketogenic diet can throw some physicians into a tailspin. As physicians, we are taught about diabetic ketoacidosis, a potentially life-threatening medical emergency. We are not routinely taught about nutritional ketosis, the default human state of existence. Our brain requires either glucose or ketones as a primary fuel source. Ketones are… Continue reading Ketogenic Diet To A T2DM Patient
Understanding the risk factors that could lead to prediabetes and diabetes type 2… • Weight: Being overweight (have a body mass index—a BMI—of higher than 25), increases your risk for developing prediabetes. This is especially true if you carry a lot of extra weight in your abdomen. The extra fat cells can cause your body… Continue reading What are Market for Developing Prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes
In the 1960s, the sugar industry paid three Harvard scientists to publish a review of research on sugar vs. fat and their effects on heart disease. The Sugar Association paid the scientists the equivalent of about $50,000 today, cherry-picked the research included in the review; resulting in a biased article published in the New England… Continue reading Sugar vs. Fat
In the US, 52.3% of the adult population has either type 2 diabetes or prediabetes. Less than 12.2% of the adult population is metabolically healthy. Six feedings a day are a recipe for insulin resistance. Dietary carbs are only necessary if a person is currently taking diabetes medications associated with the risk for hypoglycemia such… Continue reading Prove Me Wrong.

Metabolic inflammation (metainflammation) of obesity and hyperinsulinemia is an under-recognized cause of pain in the United States. Musculoskeletal pain has been estimated to affect 13.5%–47% of the general population, and 75 percent of those affected have two… Continue reading Insulin Resistance is an Unrecognized Cause of Chronic Pain.
Research shows that patients in the prediabetic range need to be treated in order to prevent tissue damage. The HbA1c test has a significant tendency to miss cases of diabetes as compared to the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) Patients should be treated in the prediabetic range because macrovascular tissue damage is occurring from HgBA1C… Continue reading Macrovascular Tissue Damage Starts from HgBA1C of 5.7, Not 6.5 Treat Early
To reverse diabetes, weight loss and a low-carbohydrate diet must be combined. These are independent factors for reversing diabetes. Weight loss can achieve diabetes reversal through decompressing (decongesting) the liver and pancreas, improving blood flow, and reducing adipocyte hormonal responses. As the worldwide epidemic of obesity continues to worsen, the epidemic of type 2 diabetes… Continue reading Insulin Resistance and Metabolic Inflammation
