Diabetes and the Plant Based Diet

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine put the plant based diet to the test with thousands of patients who have type 2 diabetes.  They determined that a plant based diet controlled blood sugar three times more effectively than a traditional diabetes diet that limited calories and carbohydrates.

Here is the article…


I recently met a few people whose doctors are telling them that that cannot eat two much fruit because it has sugar in it. Instead they are given  Diabetes Medicine to bandage the problem, instead of being given the actual solution.

Here is a list of all the latest Diabetes Medicines available in the U.S.  I am listing these because this shows you wasted time and resources have been used to create these temporary medicinal fixes.

  • Acarbose (Precose)

Side Effects

Signs of an allergic reaction, which include hivesdifficulty breathing; or swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat.Severe itchingSevere stomach pain Severe constipation.Diarrhea that’s watery or bloody. Unusual bleeding. Easy bruising. Purple or red pinpoint spots under your skin.

  • Albiglutide (Tanzeum)

Commonly reported side effects of albiglutide include: injection site reaction,diarrhea, and nausea. Other side effects include: vomiting

  • Alogliptin (Nesina)

severe pain in your upper stomach spreading to your back, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, fast heart rate, itching, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes), or.

I would list all of the side effects to these, but I’m sure you get the point…

  • Alogliptin and metformin (Kazano)
  • Alogliptin and pioglitazone (Oseni)
  • Bromocriptine mesylate (Cycloset, Parlodel)
  • Canaglifozin (Invokana)
  • Canagliflozin and metformin (Invokamet)

My point is these are medications that Physicians are prescribing to their patients which as far as I am concerned can cause more harm than good. Why not let the Food become your medicine? There have been many recent study’s done to show how effective the Plant Based Diet is and how it can change your life drastically and get you back on the right track.

We have a rule as a family in our household.  A little bit of Rice, a lot a bit a vegetables. To add to it we have a Raw green vegetable with every meal. Eat your Greens, (Please hold the Salad Dressing) or as I like to call it Liquid Once Consumed Solidified Fat. Avocados are a good source of fat.
