In 1950, the rate of diabetes in the US was .78% of the population, today it's over 11%. Obesity is not the cause of diabetes in all cases. Mr. Peel, suffered a massive stroke 7 years ago due to undiagnosed diabetes. He was normal weight at the time. The insulin that he was on caused him to balloon in weight. He needed 5 injections a day. For years, I've been experimenting with his diet, until I finally hit upon a combination of foods - he now requires 0 injections a day, takes no diabetes medication and has (so far) lost 22 pounds.

The change for me was to totally eradicate any man-made / genetically processed foods from his diet. So, even though I laud Campbell's and Kellogg's for going gluten free, for us, that's not our problem. The genetically modified soy that is added to cereals and breads is more deadly to Mr. Peel than wheat gluten.

Tell us more about the diet that you found to work.

Is that because it is soy, or because it is GM?

In the 1950's, the rate of smoking was about 45%. Today it's about 21%. Nicotine is an appetite suppressant. There was a lot more nicotine in 1950's cigarettes (2.5mg) than those today (1.0mg). Eliminate a major appetite suppressant and you'll get increased food consumption. For the same level of caloric expenditure that will necessarily result in increased fat mass.

In the 1950's, people got a lot more physical activity than in the present day. Back then 30% of Americans worked in high activity jobs versus 22% by the year 2000. In addition, the percentage of low-activity jobs almost doubled from 23 to 41 percent. Driving cars to work went up from 67% in 1960 to 88% in 2000. As recently as 1969, about 40% of children walked or rode their bicycles to school compared to 13% in 2001. Leisure time activities have seen the same reversal. In the 1950s, there was little indoor play activity when it wasn't raining. In the present day, indoor play activity has almost entirely replaced outdoor play because video games, a million cable channels, NetFlix, and air conditioning make sedentary indoor activity more attractive. Eliminate a major source of caloric expenditure for a given energy intake and you will necessarily have an increase in body fat mass.

Adult onset diabetes is insulin resistant diabetes, not insulin deficient diabetes. The most common factor is being overweight and sedentary, that and having a high fat diet. Saturated fats can interfere with the action of the insulin receptor. A reduction in body fat caused by reducing energy intake, especially when accompanied by increase physical activity, can reduce or eliminate the need for insulin in Type II diabetes.

The change for me was to totally eradicate any man-made / genetically processed foods from his diet. So, even though I laud Campbell's and Kellogg's for going gluten free, for us, that's not our problem. The genetically modified soy that is added to cereals and breads is more deadly to Mr. Peel than wheat gluten.

You are barking up the wrong tree with respect to the contributing factors to adult onset diabetes.
