A1C chart on this page has A1C to BS conversion chart and calculator using the DCCT formula. The hemoglobin A1C result is an important value for long-term glucose monitoring; about three months mean value of glucose level. DCCT (The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial) Formula: Below is the a1c chart to show a relation between A1C and BS equivalent. A blood glucose test measures the amount of a type of sugar, called glucose, in your blood. Licence fees: A licence fee will be charged for any media (low or high resolution) used in your project. Abstract: Transient electromagnetic fields (dirty electricity), in the kilohertz range on electrical wiring, may be contributing to elevated blood sugar levels among diabetics and prediabetics.
Alert: Don't be deceived by imitation filters!Beware of imitation or knockoff filters.Know the differences and get genuine Stetzerizer Filters! Pre-diabetes, also known as metabolic syndrome, impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) or impaired fasting glucose (IFG), is an early sign that you may be at risk of developing full-blown type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Symptoms of pre-diabetes develop so gradually that most people affected by this condition often don’t recognize it until it is too late. Pre-diabetes is caused by a combination of a weakened secretion of insulin and reduced sensitivity of the body cells to insulin (insulin resistance). Although pre-diabetes is a serious condition but it can be reversed by making modest changes in their daily routines such as increasing the level of physical activity, achieved a healthy weight and follow a healthy balanced diet by eating fewer calories.
A recent study published in the prestigious scientific journal New England Journal of Medicine shows that the risk for dementia is higher in people with higher blood sugar levels. Above is a graph from the study showing average blood glucose levels in non-diabetics and the relative risk for developing dementia. As usual, statistical correlations don’t prove that the risk for dementia decreases with avoiding blood sugar-raising food (like sugar and grains).
To determine the cause we have to perform expensive studies that test advice on a low-carb diet and compare against a control group in order to see whether the risk of dementia is actually decreasing.

Whether you are a diabetic or non diabetic the closer to normal you can get your blood sugar numbers the better. Reply to comment #7 by eddy9FrankGNovember 12 2013"far fitter than" is a relative term eddy :-P and why the heck should I listen to this author anyway?
So the issue for me is, why would I try to cut out carbs to lessen my chance of developing dementia, Alzheimer's, etc.
Some here keep suggesting that everyone needs to go the low carb route because we probably have some hidden internal fat even though we can't see it. BTW, in several previous threads I gave out the precise information that the chart now shows.
I think there are some brilliant people who are not physically screwed up and yet have chosen to eat LC. What you perceive as a attack is more a investigation wherein one questions what is put forth. After, if ever lower blood sugar is valuable in preventing dementia and alzheimers, then even skinny people without issues may want to pursue it. Thus my interest in any possible value in avoiding such to keep a low blood sugar even lower than it currently is. How else are you gonna learn unless you have questions and don't blindly accept whatever is written. Reply to comment #1 by eddy15Galina L.November 13 2013 1I suspected that Indian's diet sucks (too much rice, sweets, too spicy), but now I have an inside opinion to validate my suspicion.
Was your father overweight or did he have high blood sugar (or other metabolic syndrome markers besides Alzheimer's)?
As indicated before, I seldom eat the typical refined carbs, or the sugary things, drinks, desserts, etc. For one without any of the physical problems most here seem to have come with, its hard to just go for less carbs and more fat.
And since my blood sugar is already below 90, I was exploring any potential reason for attempting to take it lower. So far, I'm finding the data lacking in any direct evidence for those of us with readings below 90 gaining additional benefit.
While my situation isn't similar to many here, it is hardly unique in the general population.
Doc advocates that all should eat good, healthy whole unprocessed food and stay away as much as possible from fast and junk food. But the rest of the time why do you resort to hyperbole such as "I don't buy butter (although I happily eat it when out or over at friends homes).
If you want a reasoned, adult discussion then when not offer one, instead of constantly picking away at strawmen of your own construction? I do not believe that Dr Andreas IS "suggesting that everyone should eat LCHF", at the very least without several caveats, including that clearly the level of carbs different people can healthily tolerate differs. Does that mean that: in general terms a great many people could NOT benefit from a diet which limits sugars and refined starches? Many of us are quite capable of critical thinking and learning without you playing devil's advocate thanks.
Intake of a Western diet (WD), which is high in saturated fat and sugar, is associated with deficits in hippocampal-dependent learning and memory processes as well as with markers of hippocampal pathology. This research (a) further substantiates previous findings of WD-induced deficits in hippocampal-dependent FN discriminations, (b) suggests that ketones may be protective against diet-induced cognitive impairment, and (c) provides evidence that diet-induced cognitive impairment precedes weight gain and obesity.
New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center, Boston Children's Hospital, Boston, MA, and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. Qualitative aspects of diet influence eating behavior, but the physiologic mechanisms for these calorie-independent effects remain speculative. We examined effects of the glycemic index (GI) on brain activity in the late postprandial period after a typical intermeal interval.
With the use of a randomized, blinded, crossover design, 12 overweight or obese men aged 18-35 y consumed high- and low-GI meals controlled for calories, macronutrients, and palatability on 2 occasions. Compared with an isocaloric low-GI meal, a high-GI meal decreased plasma glucose, increased hunger, and selectively stimulated brain regions associated with reward and craving in the late postprandial period, which is a time with special significance to eating behavior at the next meal. Dietary carbohydrate restriction improves insulin sensitivity, blood pressure, microvascular function, and cellular adhesion markers in individuals taking statins. Ballard KD, Quann EE, Kupchak BR, Volk BM, Kawiecki DM, Fernandez ML, Seip RL, Maresh CM, Kraemer WJ, Volek JS. Statins positively impact plasma low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, inflammation and vascular endothelial function (VEF).
In conclusion, these findings demonstrate that individuals undergoing statin therapy experience additional improvements in metabolic and vascular health from a 6 weeks CRD as evidenced by increased insulin sensitivity and resistance vessel endothelial function, and decreased blood pressure, triglycerides, and adhesion molecules. Like many people who discuss benefits of LC here , I have relatives, friends and family members who do not have the same need as me to eat a very low carbohydrate diet . I am not implying you are sick and miserable, I just want to re-direct your attention from BMI to other things which are important. I sometimes wondered if it was just me was being particularly sensitive to it; as one or two of the folks who comment here (usually knocking LCHF) seem to suggest that such advice is no longer mainstream! 30eddyNovember 13 2013The Denver Post tips of avoid fried food and fatty meats this I agree with, avoid all fast foods, there are healthier ways to get fat through nuts and avocados.
Also I would remove all processed goods such cookies, processed cereals, ketchup, ready made salad dressings. While I do not have an opinion that everyone should eat a LC diet, sometimes I wonder, how I would advise to someone to add more animal fats and meat in a diet high in carbohydrates? However, newer research shows that even fasting blood glucose and average blood glucose fail to tell the whole story.
There is no food I would not abandon if my inquiry indicated it had a significant net cost and it wasn't a culinary item "to die for" literally and figuratively. Nonetheless, I certainly appreciate the wait-for-more-certainty approach, especially when one is in excellent health by the first level of standard metrics and not experiencing any difficulties.
If the" only reason" for you to eat low carb is to reduce your probability of getting Alzheimer's then why isn't this a pretty damn good reason?
The question would be whether those effects would be adverse in individuals who don't have diabetes or other risk factors. Whether a huge meal of carbs, IF it raised ones blood sugar for X period of time, would do damage either in the short or long term (six days). On the other point where the curve does not begin to flatten or bend, we really need more data.
It would be foolish to think that if I am at 85, that going to 80 or 75 (if that was even possible), would provide some measure of safety from dementia or Alzheimers.
However, as I said, and I don't know her actual numbers, Cynthia Kenyon of UCSF is eating to lower her blood sugar. I'd be more impressed by that view if I knew her "normal" readings on a standard diet were already at 85 or 90. And if high for a hour, whether that one hour would cause damage over those 6 days mentioned. 39Galina L.November 13 2013 1Actually, the desire to lay down in one hour after a meal or feeling tired is often caused by the spike in a blood sugar, people who experience it even developed the therm a "carb coma". The term "blood sugar" refers to the concentration of glucose, a simple, sugar, that is found in a set volume of blood.
Blood Sugar 101 does not control which products appear in Google Ads or endorse these products. This A1C chart is based on the DCCT formula, a randomized clinical trial designed to compare intensive and conventional therapies and their relative effects on the development and progression of diabetic complications in patients with type 1.
By closely following plasma glucose levels in four Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics, we find that they responded directly to the amount of dirty electricity in their environment.
At this stage, vital organs such as the heart, kidneys, arteries, nerves, eyes would have started to deteriorate due to the high insulin level in the blood caused by the body cells being insensitive to the insulin. Insulin resistance occurs when the pancreas secretes normal amount of insulin to regulate sugar but the body cells do not respond. Take action to prevent it from progressing to full blown diabetes as once you have it, there is nothing much you can do except that for the rest of your life you will have no choice but to change the way you eat and the way you live. T2D and even on a (pretty strict) LCHF diet with lots of exercise, I can't keep my glucose levels close enough to normal.
But on such a diet, I got a boatload of cavities, had to work out daily, and developed a constant upset stomach, acid reflux and an esophageal ulcer. Or maybe you think Dr Andreas is really suggesting that butter has a medicinal value if applied liberally? Someone who undertakes high intensity physical activity for example can evidently tolerate far higher levels. In the present study, rats were trained to asymptote on hippocampal-dependent serial feature negative (FN) and hippocampal-independent simple discrimination problems. The primary outcome was cerebral blood flow as a measure of resting brain activity, which was assessed by using arterial spin-labeling functional magnetic resonance imaging 4 h after test meals. Carbohydrate restricted diets (CRD) improve atherogenic dyslipidemia, and similar to statins, have been shown to favorably affect markers of inflammation and VEF. I think that another marker of health which is important to watch is the susceptibility to infections, allergies and dental health. Under a section called '10 Tips for a healthier you', the first section, 'Eat Better', says, "Avoid fried foods, burgers and other fatty meats, such as pork, bacon, ham, salami, ribs and sausage.
When I look around grocery stores like Sprouts and Vitamin Cottage, talk friends, neighbors and coworkers about food, and go to restaurants around here, it seems to me the low-fat, high-carb craze is over. Lots of benefits after going keto, from loss of tinnitus, to loss of forehead wrinkles and softer, tighter skin generally, to reversal of greying, to greater endurance, to hardening of teeth (grass-fed butter with plenty of K2-retinol-D3), to requiring less sleep. But significantly, the curve did not turn up again or even flatten as blood sugar decreased. This study shows how transient hyperglycemia induces long-lasting activating epigenetic changes in the promoter of the nuclear factor ?B (NF-?B), resulting in elevated oxidation and inflammation.

Did you read the Post today and the 'healthy foods' that made DIA the healthiest airport in the country are, well, here is the quote, "Dieticians from the physicians committee reviewed 18 of the busiest airports in the U.S.
Seven-point capillary blood-glucose profiles (pre-meal, post-meal, and bedtime) obtained in the DCCT were analyzed to define the relationship between HbA1c and BG. A drop of blood placed on a test strip is being inserted into the Reflolux meter for a reading.
In an electromagnetically clean environment, Type 1 diabetics require less insulin and Type 2 diabetics have lower levels of plasma glucose. Accessing or using this website is restricted; user hereby agrees to the Terms and Conditions or must immediately cease use and end this session. People who are pre-diabetic have a 40% to 50% chance of developing into type 2 diabetes within 10 years. If no preventive measures are taken to bring down the blood sugar level to a normal level, the pancreas would over a period of time becomes totally overworked and would be unable to produce enough insulin to overcome the insulin resistance, resulting in your sugar levels rising to abnormally high levels. We know from before that dementia is far more common in people with abdominal obesity, type 2 diabetes and other metabolic disorders. I feel great, my numbers are normal BUT more importantly his blood sugar numbers are great. I recently ate a small square of 80% chocolate (usually eat 100%) and I could really feel it - nasty rush feeling. Or are you (as I suspect) already eating a diet of real whole foods, that by comparison to the SAD is actually much lower in carbs than many eat. Performance was then assessed following 7days on ad libitum chow and after 10, 24, 40, 60, and 90days of maintenance on WD, on ketogenic (KETO) diet, which is high in saturated fat and low in sugar and other carbohydrates, or continued maintenance on chow (CHOW). We hypothesized that brain activity would be greater after the high-GI meal in prespecified regions involved in eating behavior, reward, and craving.
No studies have examined whether a CRD provides additional benefit beyond that achieved by habitual statin use.
Everybody seems to pay too much attention on a person being fat or thin, while the picture is more complicated. Dairy products such as cheese, cottage cheese, milk and cream should be eaten in low-fat versions. Now I am finding lots of research coming out on how ketones activate Foxo genes that ramp up glutathione production and have other anti-oxidant, anti-aging effects.
In every study I have seen reported on cognitive decline or loss of brain mass, the lower the glucose the lower the decline or loss of brain mass, as far down as was measured. A long investigation into science, anthropology and food chemistry ("soft matter physics") has lead me to keto by choice. Insulin and IGF-1 are the prime culprits for aging and activating genes (such as daf-2) and metabolism that promotes degradation with aging. Buried in the article is a gem of a quote--that it's impossible to find a large group of experts that don't have any pharmaceutical industry ties. Converting A1C to equivalent blood-glucose level (as shown by the glucometer) can be easier interpreting the result. He recommends DCCT's formula to convert A1C to BS than the formula by ADAG recommended by ADA. The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. The chart is from the BM Test 1-44 which measures blood glucose from 1-44 mmol per litre by colour change from yellow to black, white to dark blue.
Dirty electricity, generated by electronic equipment and wireless devices, is ubiquitous in the environment.
The excess sugar build up in the blood would then spills over to the urine and passes out of the body and eventually, this would lead to type 2 diabetes. These are problems you also run the risk of getting from excessive amounts of bad carbohydrates. And the LCHF approach keeps my BGs very stable instead of the roller-coaster I was on when following the standard advice.
Confirming and extending previous findings, diet-induced obese (DIO) rats fed WD showed impaired FN performance, increased blood-brain barrier (BBB) permeability, and increased fasting blood glucose levels compared to CHOW controls and to diet-resistant (DR) rats that did not become obese when maintained on WD.
From observing other people and myself, I got an impression that eating more animal products and fat could be important for the people who get sick more easy or have trouble to recover after illness or a surgery, amount of carbohydrates could make the difference for the people with mental issues. Nuts and sandwich meats, mayonnaise, margarine, butter and sauces should be eaten in limited amounts." I don't know why but this just makes me mad. I have read too many comments of the people who reported that adding more fat to their carbs just resulted for them in a weight gain (more likely fat gain). The paper made me annoyed today as well, FrankG, Denver International Airport has just been ranked the number one airport in the USA for healthy food.
I have found fasting blood glucose to be highly variable (I measure every day) so I expect studies that rely on that are less reliable. I hope there is an Elway's at the airport, there is, isn't there, I will go and have a steak. Goldstein, MD "Defining the Relationship Between Plasma Glucose and HbA1c, Analysis of glucose profiles and HbA1c in the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial," Diabetes Care 25:275-278, 2002. Diabetes mellitus is a carbohydrate metabolism disorder in which unused sugars accumulate in the blood and urine.
A pain-free stomach, no more tooth decay, niggling joint pain gone, less time spent working out, and a 20-pound weight loss were pleasant side effects. For rats fed the KETO diet, FN performance and BBB integrity were more closely associated with level of circulating ketone bodies than with obesity phenotype (DR or DIO), with higher levels of ketones appearing to provide a protective effect.
In my family history we have a record of a person who managed to recover from tuberculosis at the time when antibiotics were not available by eating a lot of eggs, butter, pork fat. It looks like just adding butter to your carbohydrates-based breakfast may be not a good idea. The more I read, the more butter, egg yolks and coconut oil I add, and the lower goes my HbA1c. For this reason, most studies I have seen reported rely on HbA1c, which measures the extent of glycation damage to blood protein from sugar and is indicative of time-weighted average blood sugar levels over the previous 90 days or so. Bottom lines show Insulin and C-peptide levels at the same time.Click HERE if you don't see the graph. Glycated hemoglobin (hemoglobin a1c, hba 1c, a1c, or hb 1c; sometimes also hba1c or hgba1c) is a form of hemoglobin that is measured primarily to identify the average.
Raised levels of blood glucose must be controlled, by diet and insulin injection (at top right). The evidence also indicated that FN deficits preceded and predicted increased body weight and adiposity. My thin and athletic son who has no problems with blood sugar , eats a LC diet only when he feels like he may be getting a flu, during busy test time at university he lives on two stakes a day to save time from cooking. So, at the end of the day people have to choose more or less between eating a lot of carbohydrates or eating more fat. Weston Price managed to stop caries among the people prone to a dental decay with a one teaspoon 3 times a day of the mix of a grass-fed butter and a cod liver oil. Here is the kicker---the epigenetic effect lasts six days after blood sugar returns to normal. This is why I watch ketones, as insulin stops ketosis, so this is my proxy measurement to confirm low levels of insulin.
Based on estimates of people who suffer from symptoms of electrical hypersensitivity (335%), as many as 560 million diabetics worldwide may be affected. I guess, eating in the pattern of IF (two meals 6-8 hours apart, without snacks, 16 hours minimum fasting window) one could get more relaxed about mixing carbs and fats, and it will sure result in a lower average blood sugar level. I don't get it, they are still going on about cholesterol, and now they want to change the guidelines so more adults are put on cholesterol lowering meds. Plainly, blood sugar spikes are going to stimulate insulin, so I avoid those like the plague.
Exposure to electromagnetic pollution in its various forms may account for higher plasma glucose levels and may contribute to the misdiagnosis of diabetes. Peak forearm blood flow, but not flow-mediated dilation, increased at week 6 compared to baseline and week 3 (P ? .03). I have a friend who is absolutely do not let herself to gain a pound, goes to a gym, but she is a magnet for seasonal flues, and her recovery is usually a long one.
I am becoming a conspiracy theory person here thinking all the interest groups have more influence than common sense and science when it comes to eating and drugs.

Below you will find the normal readings for these various tests.Normal Fasting Blood SugarFasting blood sugar is usually measured first thing in the morning before you have eaten any food. According to the World Health Organization, in 1985 the global population of diabetics was 30 million (0.6% of the world population). Doctors attribute this rise in diabetes to poor diet and limited exercise, resulting in obesity, and seldom look for causes other than lifestyle and genetics.This article presents a paradigm shift in the way we think about diabetes. In addition to Type 1 diabetics, who produce insufficient insulin, and Type 2 diabetics, who are unable to effectively use the insulin they produce, a third type of diabetes may be environmentally exacerbated or induced by exposure to electromagnetic frequencies.Our increasing reliance on electronic devices and wireless technology is contributing to an unprecedented increase in our exposure to a broad range of electromagnetic frequencies, in urban and rural environments and in both developed and developing countries.
This energy is generated within the home by computers, plasma televisions, energy efficient lighting and appliances, dimmer switches, cordless phones, and wireless routers, and it can enter the home and work environment from nearby cell phone and broadcast antennas as well as through ground current.Although the position of most international health authorities, including the World Health Organization, is that this form of energy is benign as long as levels remain below guidelines, an increasing number of scientific studies report biological and health effects associated with electromagnetic pollution well below these guidelines (Sage and Carpenter, 2007). He also monitored the dirty electricity in his home using a Protek 506 Digital Multimeter connected to a ubiquitous filter (Graham, 2000) to remove the 60-Hz signal and its harmonics. Low or no readings of dirty electricity were taken in an electromagnetic clean environment far from power lines and cell phone antennas (Fig. Three years later, the microsurge meter became available and Case 1 monitored his blood sugar levels once more (Fig. Normal Blood Sugars in PregnancyBecause the blood volume increases greatly during pregnancy, diluting blood sugar, normal blood sugar concentrations for pregnant women are lower than those for everyone else. Instead, what it measures is how much glucose has become permanently bonded to your red blood cells.
Insert shows the entire data set with one very high plasma glucose reading that was recorded during a period of high exposure to dirty electricity. From this it estimates how much glucose those red blood cells have been exposed to over the past several months. Lower chart: Three years later, fasting plasma glucose levels correspond to power quality measured in GS units. 1.Case 1 also documented rapid changes in blood sugar as he moved from a medical clinic (environment with dirty electricity), to his parked vehicle (no dirty electricity), and back to the medical clinic. The Calculator that Shows How Estimated Average Glucose is Supposed to Map to A1cThe calculator you will find HERE uses the formula doctors rely on to show you what average blood sugar is supposed to be connected with your A1c.Unfortunately, the A1c test often gives a misleading result.
This is prone to occur if you have anemia, abnormally long-lived red blood cells, or certain unusual red blood cell genes.
His endocrinologist classified him as pre-diabetic when his blood sugar was tested immediately upon entering the medical clinic and as a Type 2 diabetic after a 20-min wait in the medical clinic.
The test assumes you have a normal number of red blood cells, so any condition that changes your concentration of red blood cells can produce a misleading A1c results. Treadmills have variable speed motors and produce dirty electricity.Doctors recommend exercise for patients with diabetes.
For many years the American Diabetes Association specifically stated that the A1c test should not be used for diagnosing diabetes. However, if that exercise is done in an electromagnetically dirty environment, and if the patient is sensitive to this form of energy, it may increase stress on the body and elevate levels of plasma glucose, as in Case 2.This subject also measured her plasma glucose as she moved from an environment with dirty electricity to one that was clean, and back again.

They recently changed their recommendations to allow the use of A1c for diagnosis, however the A1c often misses diabetes in people whose red blood cells are not entirely normal.When in doubt about the accuracy of an A1c test result use a blood sugar meter and take a number of fasting and post meal blood sugar tests to determine if you are running blood sugars that are high enough to damage your organs.
What A1c is Truly Good Enough for a Person with Diabetes?Doctors have been taught that any A1c below 7.5% is "good control" for people with diabetes. Her elevated plasma glucose levels were associated with headaches, nausea, and joint pain in her home, where she was exposed to both dirty electricity and radio frequency radiation from nearby cell phone antennas. But research published in 2008 that was based on studying a group of 2,442 subjects who were free of type 2 diabetes at the beginning of the study found that fasting glucose tests were a very poor predictor of who in this group would develop diabetes. In contrast, the researchers found that the one hour reading on a glucose tolerance test did a good job of screening for people heading for diabetes. These filters provide a short to high frequency, and, thus, reduce transients on electrical wiring with an optimal filtering capacity between 4 and 100 kHz (Graham, 2000, 2002, 2003). Fasting Versus Postload Plasma Glucose Concentration and the Risk for Future Type 2 Diabetes Muhammad A.
They are similar to capacitors installed by industry to protect sensitive electronic equipment from power surges and to adjust the power factor. More about the Study Whose Results Are Graphed Above This research was conducted using a Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGMS) a device that uses a needle inserted into the abdomen to measure blood sugar every few minutes. Her evening blood sugar did not change appreciably during this period, although it did differ on days she was away from home. The headaches continued and a power quality expert measured high levels of dirty electricity and ground current, possibly attributable to the septic system installation.In December 2002, one child, a 12-year old male, was hospitalized and diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. His younger sister had been living with diabetes since the age of 3 months and was one of the youngest children diagnosed with diabetes in the United States.On January 14, 2003, the family installed GS filters to help alleviate their symptoms of electrical hypersensitivity. Shortly after the GS filters were installed, the mother had great difficulty controlling her sons blood sugar.
She couldnt reduce the amount of insulin fast enough to keep it within an acceptable range and needed to give him sugar pills to prevent hypoglycemia (Fig. Christiansen, presented at the Annual Meeting of the EASD.The whole presentation is well worth watching. The honeymoon period cannot explain the response of the subjects sister, who had been living with Type 1 diabetes for years, and who also had lower plasma glucose levels and difficulty regulating her insulin within an acceptable range after the GS filters were installed and the dirty electricity was reduced.Case 4 had higher levels of plasma glucose at 8 am (fasting) than at 2 am on some days before the GS filters were installed. This study also found that the same amount of carbohydrate eaten at a meal other than breakfast does not raise blood sugar anywhere near as high as it does at breakfast.A Second CGMS Study that Confirms this RangeA study of CGMS measurements taken in 74 normal people aged between 9 and 65 years old over a period of 3 to 7 days was published in June of 2010.
This was not observed with the filters, except when sugar pills were taken at 2 am to deliberately increase blood sugar (Fig. Case 4: Sequence of mean daily plasma glucose levels and total daily insulin injections for 12-year old male with Type 1 diabetes who was admitted to hospital in December 2002 and returned home on January 1, 2003. Case 4: Fasting (8 am) and 2 am plasma glucose levels for 12-year old male with Type 1 diabetes with and without GS filters.
Type 1 diabetics require less insulin in an electromagnetically clean environment and blood sugar levels for Type 2 diabetics increase with increasing exposure to dirty electricity.In May 2006, a long-term health care facility in Ontario, Canada installed GS filters to reduce dirty electricity. This is probably because by the age of 45 people with the underlying genetic conditions that lead to diabetes, whose blood sugars would have been normal at younger ages, but who would have been getting higher than true normal readings after meals, would have progressed to where they failed the screening test. Of the five diabetic residents, for whom data were available, two (aged 87 and 88) were insulin-dependent Type 1 diabetics. So it is a good bet that the people in the 45 and older age group in this study are truly, physiologically normal.
Their insulin intake did not change during this period and nursing staff had to give them orange juice on several occasions to prevent hypoglycemia.
The levels of plasma glucose of the remaining three, who were Type 2 diabetics, did not change during this period.The GS filters, used in this study have been tested at the Yoyogi Natural Clinic in Japan (Sogabe, 2006).
He had been unable to achieve such low values with medication alone.In this study, we classify diabetics whose blood sugar responds to electromagnetic pollution as Type 3 diabetics. In contrast to true Type 1 diabetics who produce insufficient insulin and true Type 2 diabetics who are unable to effectively use the insulin they produce, Type 3 diabetics are responding to environmental triggers that affect blood sugar readings and blood viscosity.
These individuals may be better able to regulate plasma glucose by controlling their exposure to frequencies in the low RF range, and thus differ from true Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics whose blood sugar is not affected by this type of electromagnetic exposure.The increase in blood viscosity with increasing exposure to dirty electricity is a critical observation. There was a significant linear correlation (R=0.99) between daily median RF exposure and incidence of diabetes. If you rely only on pills and do nothing else, the only blood sugar levels you will be able to get to are the much-too-high "good enough for a diabetic" levels which, as you can see elsewhere on this site, are "good enough" only if you think neuropathy, retinopathy and a heart attack are "good enough." Though your doctor may think you are too lazy to do the work needed to get normal blood sugars and may not bother explain to you what it takes to achieve normal numbers, people with diabetes CAN and DO attain these normal blood sugar numbers. These symptoms are typical of radio wave sickness or electrical hypersensitivity (Firstenberg, 2001). Another study of elderly patients treated at VA hospitals found that patients with longstanding diabetes whose blood sugar was lowered aggressively with outdated methods of dosing insulin did not improve their health outcomes.
Failure of the transmitter for a 3-d period was associated with improved sleep and, hence, these reactions are biological not psychological.Beale et al. Influential doctors interpreted these studies to mean that lowering blood sugar to normal levels using any means was dangerous and family doctors have been brainwashed to believe this is true. In fact, subsequent analyses of this data has revealed that in ACCORD the patients in the group that strove to lower blood sugar who experienced slightly more heart attacks were those in the "lowering" study group who failed to meet the lowered blood sugar targets. Those who succeeded in lowering their A1c did better than those who did not.Further analysis linked the increase in heart attacks to the use of the now-discredited drug, Avandia, which raises the risk of heart attack independent of blood sugar level. Epidemiological studies of power lines tend to focus on cancers, rather than diabetes, and, hence, limited information of this type is available.Litovitz et al.
No statistical tests were reported and no attempt was made to measure frequencies other than 60 Hz. Without an understanding of how normal blood sugar works, it is hard to understand what is going on in your body as control breaks down and even harder to fix it. If you want to understand your true risk of developing diabetes and what science has learned about process people go through as they develop diabetes, read: The Patterns in Which Diabetes Develops. What It Takes to Get Normal Blood SugarsEducation If you want to avoid diabetic complications, following doctors' orders is not enough.
You must put in some time educating yourself about how your body works and what is in the food you eat. Serum insulin levels decreased at the middle- and high-flux densities, which the authors associated with stress.Sakurai et al. Learn What Foods Your Body Can Handle The simple technique you'll find here: How to Get Your Blood Sugar Under Control has helped thousands of people regain their health, and it will work for you, too. Insulin secretion was reduced by approximately 30% when exposed to low-frequency magnetic fields compared to sham exposure.
Try this technique for a week and you'll end up with a much better idea of what foods make up an ideal "Diabetes Diet" for your own unique metabolism.
The authors conclude: "it might be desirable for diabetic patients who have insufficient insulin secretion from pancreatic islets to avoid exposure to ELFMF".

The magnetic flux density was exceptionally high in this experiment and is unlikely to be encountered in normal daily life. No matter what you read in the media or what your doctor tells you, diabetes is not caused by obesity. Studies of the incipient level of electromagnetic exposure, at which insulin secretion is reduced, would be useful.Li et al. Studies with laboratory animals and in vitro studies with human cells show both low-frequency electromagnetic fields and non thermal RF radiation stimulates production of stress proteins, and that the biochemical reactions are the same over a range of frequencies and intensities (Blank and Goodman, 2004). Release of insulin is strongly inhibited by the stress hormone norepinephrine, which leads to increased blood glucose levels during stress. Free yourself of this Toxic myth by reading You Did Not Eat Your Way to Diabetes and learn what scientists have found are the real causes of Type 2 Diabetes. The "stress response" to electromagnetic energy may provide, yet, another mechanism that could explain Type 3 diabetes.Reduced insulin secretion and reduced binding capacity of insulin to its receptors may explain the elevated levels of plasma glucose in Type 3 diabetics exposed to electromagnetic fields. More research on mechanisms is needed.ConclusionsIn addition to lifestyle and genetics, the environment appears to be another factor contributing to high levels of blood sugar. This concept presents a possible paradigm shift in the way we think about diabetes and the consequences may be far reaching. Doctors have long suspected an environmental component but it has not been until now that one has been found.The increasing exposure and ubiquitous nature of electromagnetic pollution may be contributing to the increasing incidence of this disease and the escalating cost of medical care. Diagnosis of diabetes needs to be done in an electromagnetically clean environment to prevent misdiagnosis, and to properly assess the severity of this disorder. Most medical centers have electronic equipment and use fluorescent lights that produce dirty electricity, which is likely to cause abnormally high blood sugar readings for those with a combination of diabetes and electrohypersensitivity (Type 3 diabetes). Dirty electricity may also explain why brittle diabetics have difficulty controlling their blood sugar levels.Type 3 diabetes, as described in this study, is an emerging disease. Unlike true Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics whose blood sugar is not affected by dirty electricity, Type 3 diabetics may be better able to regulate their blood sugar with less medication, and those diagnosed as borderline or pre-diabetic may remain non diabetic longer by reducing their exposure to electromagnetic energy. The GS filters and the microsurge meter provide the tools needed for scientific investigation of dirty electricity and may help diabetics regulate their blood sugar by improving power quality in their home, school, and work environment. Minimizing exposure to radio frequencies (kHz to GHz), flowing along the ground or through the air, also needs to be addressed. Large-scale studies are needed in controlled settings to determine the percentage of the population with Type 3 diabetes.These results are dramatic and warrant further investigation.
