  1. Type 2 diabetes is reversible but not the lesions and sequels it does to your body.. So start watching out for suggars and timelapse between meals right now)

  2. That paradigm isn't new, in its principles it's probably always been known but it doesn't satisfy the pharmaceutical industry's shareholders, and the money they make by nurturing chronic diseases like diabetes is stronger than truth. Fasting, for its almighty simplicity, has never been appreciated by medicine – and will never be – for it simply puts her outta work. Upton Sinclair clearly mentions it in his 1910 book "The Fasting cure". The problem hasn't changed a bit. What applied to particular doctors being put outta work yesterday applies for giant multinational shareholders today. Pfizer makes more money than Apple, it makes more revenues than states like France or Germany. That kinda money buys even science. That's really what I think. That paradigm being true is far from being enough to let it prevail in medical science. If it sinks a dozen top medications off the market it's probably NEVER gonna prevail. Thank God our era is also the one of information.

  3. SGLT2s can cause ketoacidosis without the warning sign high blood sugar levels, which can accelerate rapidly and lead to death. They also damage the kidneys. Stay away!

  4. It is now time to respond to the fast “unhealthy” food industry and it's franchises. This can be led by the MDs and other professions who so eloquently explain the reason it is needed.

    I envision such a response would use the McDonald's playbook starting with its golden arches. Instead of arches a giant silver V would be underlined with the franchise name: Whofoplaba (short for Whole Food Plant Based). It would serve both take-out and dine-in. 
    A super salad bar offering no less than 25 vegies would be the centerpiece. Of course it would include nuts and seeds. The menu would range from raw broccoli and cauliflower with a wide choice of hummus dip to cooked rice and beans, steamed vegetables, varieties of starches including baked potatoes. To round out the menu selections choices can be made from the many vegan recipes created and already published. A highlight would be where customers could request customized personal plates. 

    A bonus for customers would be their opportunity to purchase many of the Whofoplaba books available.
    McDonalds is successful because it bought the land upon which it built the structure. Thus it had absolute control of what was offered and how it was managed, else the franchisee would be have to go.
    I am addressing this suggestion to the many Whofoplaba doctors and other professionals, some of who are listed below. 
    ToT. Colin Campbell, PhD, Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, John A. McDougall, MD, Joel Fuhrman MD, Neal Barnard, MD, Brooke Goldner, MD, Michael Greger, MD, Michael Klaper, MD, Joel Kahn, M, Pamela A. Popper, PhD, ND, Garth Davis, MD, Alan Goldhamer, DC,Doug D, Lisle, PhD, Robert Ostfeld, MD, MS, Ellsworth Wareham, MD, Matthew Lederman, MD, Alona Pulde, MD, Dean Ornish MD, Ron Weiss MD, Robert Lustig MD, Kim Williams MD, Joanne Kjong MD, Anthony Lim MD, Brenda Dsavuas RS, Micelle McMacken MD, Tati Kvis MD, Benjamin Benulis MD, and so many more.
    Iam also asking the vegan community to offer your support as future customers. On March 1, 2019 I start my third year as a vegan. Two years ago I was obese, had diabetes and high blood pressure. After watching the youtube videos of most of those listed above, I am no longer obese and do not have high blood pressure or diabetes. I am 78 years of age and hope to make it to 100.

  5. Thanks Dr Fung for explaining this to us that are not physicians. It’s like the cat is out of the bag, so why is the medical community still divided over this all important issue?

  6. Is there any way I could help with getting this with spanish subtitles? I need my parents to see this ASAP. I'm an English teacher and have a master's degree in literature. I have experience with high-level literature in English, Spanish and French.

  7. Great Dr. Fung. However, still, you failed to answer the solution to the very skinny guy who gets diabetes (type2). Will s/he still do fasting while s/he is not obese at all, rather underweight.

  8. This guy is a quack. Diabetes is a disease of fat. Fat is what prevents insulin receptors in the cell from working and prevent insulin from activating the process for glucose absorption. He is right about diet but wrong about which kind. A low-fat, whole-food, plant-based diet can permanently reverse diabetes. If you want to believe this quack, then take his fasting recommendation to its logical conclusion and just stop eating. This is dangerous.

  9. No wonder 'they' want to censor everybody.
    Millions of $€£ and political power can be lost, due to people informing themselves, using the free market of ideas.
    Bunch of bastards, go censor yourselfs with some bayer roundup poison.

  10. The richest segment of civilized society is Pharma and the Medical Industry.Hence people like Dr. Jason Fung are indeed a rarity, they are for helping the masses and not making money for the rich Pharma companies, hence him getting a Nobel Prize is out of question!!!

  11. As a Nurse practitioner, I work for a physician that has been saying this and treating insulin resistance this way for at least 20 years now. None of this is new. But most physicians don't know that and I don't know why.

  12. So what the hell am i suppose to eat then when ya have early onset type 3 and told to do low protein then someone says low carb? Everything has carbs! Everything has protein! Guess we just starve ourselves.

  13. Awesome!! He deserves Nobel prize really. Great doctor as well. Thank u so much Dr. Jeson Fung. U saved us.

  14. Dr J Fung should be appointed to the Health secretary urgently to make all the necessary changes into the world. Get rid of all these other fakes making money off the sick!

  15. I understand that the "key is broken" model model of insulin resistance doesn't make sense. I mean, if that were true, how could prescribing more insulin work for a while to pack more sugar into the body? By the same token, though, if the insulin key is working fine, and the cell is just refusing more sugar because it's full, I still don't see how prescribing more insulin could temporarily encourage the cell to accept more sugar? If the cell is full, the cell is full.

  16. Doctor Fung, your the best. Thank you.
    Type 2 diabetic for 10 years now off my meds with intermittent fasting.

  17. Great information but ruined by the close using the man who doubled our national debt and spied on American citizens. No he couldn't.

  18. The more I listen to Dr. Fung I am amazed by his sheer depth of knowledge in physiology. This man is on god mode in this field!!!

  19. So Dr Fung talks about how the liver is affected with Type 2 Diabetes…my husband is a Type 2 now for 25 years and his liver function panel has been and still is in normal range. What does this mean then?

  20. My A1C 8.7 on my first test two years ago. I discovered Dr. Fung. Started his program per videos and his book. In less than 5 months A1C dropped to 5.9; lost 40 lbs. After two years gained back 15 lbs and is steady for a year. A1C 6.3 .As I get back on intermittent fasting; No processed sugars and carbs; eat only when hungry; no snacks; weekly 36 hour fast, my metabolic set point will drop more. He saved my life.

  21. So I am not a diabetic, but I have found something really interesting, more of an unusual hyperglycemic effect. I usually stop eating around 8 or 9 pm and start again at 12 or 1, sometimes a bit later. LOVE intermittent fasting and how it makes me feel. But my blood sugar has been really high. I know because I have a meter because I'm a nursing student and just a weirdo and I like to check it. When I wake up with tons of energy I'll check my sugars and they're like 105-130- and no food for 8+ hours. It will stay a bit high until I eat, and about an hour after I eat it will drop into the 90's. There is basically no info on blood sugar levels in people without diabetes. Am I burning fat stores and seeing the released glucose in my blood? Does anyone have any info on this?

  22. Funny how western medicine's mistakes always seem to err on the side of producing increased profits for the pharmaceutical industry. Western medicine is all about the profit motive. Like everything with the system we live in, there are the success stories, the aspects that work to bring you, like antibiotics, but once in, so much is all about getting you hooked on drugs for your entire life.

  23. People living in Allopathic glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

    As far as the treatment of Chronic diseases goes, Allopathy is a house of horrors 💀☠️

    Just like Cholesterol, BP & Blood sugar are NOT diseases and is in constant state of fluctuation based on age, genetics, diet, stress and exercise.

    Big Pharma and their subservient servants, the Allopaths, who have prostituted the healing profession and the Hippocratic Oath to the pharmaceutical industry, want you to believe that they are diseases and take prescription drugs for life so that they can reap enormous profits.
    The worst thing to do is to constantly check blood for Cholesterol, glucose and pressure because when it is high it will cause stress and further elevate blood glucose and blood pressure. It is a vicious cycle of no return. Reductionist science at it's worst.

    Rather than that, people should increase the consumption of local herbs and spices to strengthen the Liver and Kidneys to age gracefully and focus on Subjective wellbeing not Objective blood tests.
    Holistic Science is better than Reductionist science.

  24. Whenever you supply what isn't demanded chaos arises, just eat when you're hungry and you're sorted.

  25. I have a question: If you do endurance sport all your life, does this change anything about these negative effects of carbs and sugar? For example if you go running three times a week, do you "burn" something off, so it does not get stored in the liver? Does anybody know, or has a similar video?

  26. Dr Fung you are the best. The more educate us . The better we are able to treat our Insulin Resistance, Fatty Liver, Type 2 Diabetes.

  27. We have one of the best doctors in the world.. giving us the most amazing medical advice .. All for free !!… How lucky are we !!!.. Thank you ! X

  28. Please address the people who have to inject insulin. I'm under 20 carbs. But still have readings of 200.

  29. Dr Fung Dr Berg Dr Berry all amazing! Keep united and keep up the good work! I was in the 1970s at start of low fat era and one of the reasons was medical profs were finding more bowel cancer. They then said we needed more roughage for our bowel. Sadly they said grain roughage rather than leafy green and grains were cheap.

  30. I'm a living example. 9 months OMAD with 20 hrs IF with 92 lbs weightloss, blood pressure is now normal 118/80. Cannot even THINK about returning to the unhealthy old ways.

  31. So I can get on board with this discussion, but for one thing………The Japanese eat a lot of rice right? They are not an obese people. So, is rice a bad thing? I think that fasting (emptying the liver), and not over filling it……. is the key to a healthy ecosystem. I'll work on that. Thank you for helping me understand diabetes!

  32. I wish I knew this stuff when I was younger. I think the diet industry knew this information all along. Even Weight Watchers denies the validity of Intermittent Fasting. Since I am doing both WW and Intermittent fasting, I know this is true. WW leaders will bad mouth intermittent fasting if you bring it up at a meeting. You would think they would want to jump on the science and incorporate it into their program to give their customers the best possible outcome. I think they are more interested in making money then really helping people. They know that their method as a stand alone plan, ensures repeat customers because people will eventually fail and gain the weight back.

  33. i have done low carb under 20 per day for a very long time i ex 90 min per day cut insulin to 2 units my blood sugar is always over 200 some times over 240 i do NOT seem to be getting better by doing this

  34. Hello Dr Jason, insulin resistance is a protective phenomenon against excess energy storage primarily fat which inhibit GLUT 4 transport. MalonylCoA primarly from excess glucose via glycolysis and krebs cycle inhibits CPT1 inhibiting fattyacid transport into mitochondria redirecting LCFA for TG synthesis inside cytoplasm. Inturn the intermediates of TG-ceramide, DAG finally inhibit GLUT4 transport. Glucose inside the cells is not supersaturated as it is shown in studies to have decreased. Its not internal starvation as you explained, but in a different way. You may have to reconsider the new paradigm again Sir.

  35. Jason Fung is my hero. No joke. When I first read "Jason Fung Nobel Prize…" I thought it was a joke… but now I don't anymore. He is saving milions of lives

  36. What if insulin pushes sugar into the cell and the cell develops cancer because of that overdose of sugar? What if toxins, chemicals, heavy metals or viruses or parasites would cause pancreas inflammation and the pancreatic gland would stop producing insulin? My advice: do a detoxification (heavy metals, toxins, chemicals, mold, viruses, parasites, etc. with binders like humic acid, charcoal, clay and zeolite – and later than eventually chelates like DMPS/DMPA) and a healthy diet (no sugars, no dairy, no grains or grass, no meats, no convenience food or processed food) as well as some supplements to support the body doing its metabolic job are the start-off to great health. The positive effect of fasting is that those inflammation-causing foods are not consumed. It is not the fasting itself that causes the change – it is the elimination of certain foods.

  37. Dr. Fung,

    Can you do a video on diet in children. What is the ideal or appropriate diet to meet the nutritional needs of growing boys?

  38. If you don’t have diabetes, big pharma, drs, hospitals, pharmacies, insurance companies would not be able to make big $$$$. The drug lords lose money. THANK YOU DOCTOR. THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

  39. As usual, big medicine wants you to believe that disease is irreversible and that drugs are the only way to manage it. What a crock. Dr. Fung makes more sense than other expert doctors who are living off the Big Pharma gravy train.

  40. It's a nice theory, BUT I have Insulin Resistance but I do NOT have a fatty liver. My ALT is supposed to be below 36 and it is at 15. My blood glucose is negative and my A1C is supposed to be below 6 and it is at 5.6. I also have stage 3b kidney disease with blood work that is excellent. It makes no sense to me. HARVARD HEALTH says that Metabolic Syndrome and Abdominal Obesity may cause Insulin Resistance. I have both of those. It seems to me that Harvard has got it right.

  41. Depending on your age and feeding choices you can have up to 9 meals in transition in your food tube. Intermittent fasting and raw salads with homemade juices will help clean out your system. Don't over consume fiber either. Coffee enemas can also be helpful in clearing the bile duct and colon to help support the livers function.

  42. Dr. Fung provides the most sensible and logical analysis of Type II diabetes I’ve ever seen! I have been arguing the “old school” paradigm of “eat less, move more” or “it’s all about calories” is wrong for overweight/obese/type II diabetics……the body has to be functioning as designed for that to work and not encumbered with fatty liver, hyper insulin issues, etc.

  43. – Intermittent fasting (eat between 11am and 7pm)
    – Regular sleep (10pm-6am)
    – Control Carbs (50grams per day, no sugar)
    – Prioritize Protein (fatty red meat & fatty fish)
    – Fill with Fat (no vegetable oils!)
    – Regularly walk for 30min (twice a day)
    – Perform HIIT (twice a week)
    – do strength training (twice a week)

  44. Dr. Fung you give me hope I purchased your book the diabetic code was wondering why my blood sugar keeps spiking up when all I consume is meat vegetables, I smoke cigarettes on occasions does this set me back? I would appreciate your advice, thank you God bless.

  45. Hope someone or this doctor answer my Question, the a Doctor told my son that he is type 2 diabetes,but he wasn’t fat, he start dieting and exsercs he is continues to losing wight .
