What causes diabetes type II?
Diabetes type II is a disease which is related to many other disorders, such as obesity, high blood pressure and blood flow complaints. However, we appoint diabetes type II here as a separate disorder, because the long-term consequences of having diabetes type II can be very serious. It is estimated that in 2030, there will be over 1.2 million people in the Netherlands who have detected diabetes type II. As mentioned above, diabetes type II is related to being overweight. For example, 15.7 percent of the Dutch aged 4 years or older with obesity, have diabetes. That is eight times greater than in people without obesity. One of the key factors for the onset of diabetes type II is an overconsumption of sugar and bad carbohydrates. This results in a carbohydrate addiction which ensures the development of diabetes type II. Also, a lack of adequate exercise and an impaired metabolism ensures the emergence of the disease.
Consequences of having diabetes.
Poorly treated diabetes type II creates accumulations of fatty acids in the blood vessels (atherosclerosis) and hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis). When this is not addressed, there are serious conditions that lie ahead, such as stroke, nerve damage, heart disease, eye disease and kidney failure.
There are several different types of diabetes. Usually it is clear what type of diabetes a person has. When in doubt, genetic research is needed. Each form needs its own treatment, but the Quadrivas Therapy provides prevention of complications in all cases.
Quadrivas and diabetes
According to the Dutch Diabetes Fund, there is a link between obesity, insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia (too much insulin) and changes in blood pressure and the functioning of the blood vessels. Thanks to this research it has become clear how these things interact. The question that was asked was: how does insulin affect the blood vessels in healthy people and how in people who are insensitive to insulin?
With help from the adipose tissue in the body, insulin can widen or straighten the blood vessels. The adipose tissue namely excretes all kinds of substances, such as hormones and inflammatory substances, which together with insulin influence the blood vessels. With reduced sensitivity to insulin, insulin is not able to properly dilate the vessels, but it can make it narrower. Furthermore, the researchers discovered a new type of adipose tissue, which in diabetes type II accumulates around the blood vessels. There, it acts as a jammer for the influence of insulin on the blood vessels. This may play a major role in problems with blood pressure in people with diabetes. We welcome these new insights because we know that the Quadrivas Therapy causes this fatty degeneration to disappear around the blood vessels.
