1194. Diabetes Before 30: A Silent Alarm You Can't Ignore

A new study has revealed if you’re diagnosed with diabetes before the age of 30, you’ve essentially shaved 14 years off your life! This earth shattering news ought to be heralded from the rooftops.

Join Dr. Martin as he teaches on sugar diabetes, what type two diabetes was originally called.



Announcer:  You're listening to The Doctor Is In Podcast, brought to you by MartinClinic.com. During the episode, the doctors share a lot of information. As awesome as the info may be, it is not intended to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent any disease. It's strictly for informational purposes.

Dr. Martin:  Well, good morning everyone. I'm back. Once again, welcome to another live this morning. Hope you're doing well. Good to have you on with us. We appreciate you guys more than you know. Okay, this morning we're going to continue with headlines. We had so many come out in the last several days that I just got to bring these back up. We're going to do a little bit of a deeper dive on some of these because they're so interesting. We're going to look at these things, but let's just go through a couple of more headlines. So we call it News Behind the News, okay? These are health news studies, research papers, okay?

Cortisol and insulin. Okay? New study on cortisol and insulin. Serial killers, two hormones that want you dead. What wants you dead? Man, that was a successful book. People liked that title. Serial killers, and it wasn't cereal with a C. Real serial killers are insulin and cortisol, okay? Medicine really hasn't caught up yet. I mean, it's very hard or very difficult to get physicians thinking about cortisol. They just don't. It doesn't register when it comes to testing it. Everybody's stressed, so why worry about it? Well, cortisol over a period of time can be very, very detrimental. Here's a new study that talks about cortisol and insulin resistance. Okay? Now here's what happens. This is the paper. Never spike glucose within two or three hours of sleeping. Okay?

Now you guys know this because I talk about it all the time. One of the best ways to settle your stomach, whether you have gallbladder problems, digestive problems, stomach problems, whatever, don't eat at night. I talk about that all the time. The earlier you eat and then stop you're really practicing intermittent fasting, okay? Do your fasting. Make sure to try and, look it's not always possible. I get that. I understand that. Okay? I'm talking in generalities. The best thing habit to get into is don't eat at night, but I'm going to give you another reason for it based on this paper that was published. Never spike your glucose within two to three hours before going to bed. Okay?

So I talk about don't eat for a lot of reasons at night. The number one reason, I've talked about this for years and years and years and years and years. I have a protocol to get rid of gallbladder problems, okay? If your gallbladder is gummed up, and even with stones at times. How do you get gallbladder problems? Because you don't use it. We went fat free. Your gallbladder's made for emulsification. It's made for emulsifying fat, and when you don't eat fat, and we went on a fat-free craze, there's all sorts of gallbladder problems, okay? So one of my protocols to get rid of gallbladder problems, was stop eating at night, don't snack, don't eat at night and don't eat late. So that was the primary reason I talk about that all the time is digestive. People that have acid reflux, people that have IBS, people that have any kind, ulcerative colitis, whatever. Don't eat at night. Let your digestive tract have a break.

But this research paper was saying, don't spike your blood glucose before going to bed. Two to three hours. You're obviously, you're going to spike your blood glucose if you eat. Now, if you eat the right things, you eat eggs, meat, and cheese, you'll have some glucose made, but you're not going to make a lot of it. But anyway, don't eat at night, and they're saying, don't spike your glucose. Why? Because it increases the sympathetic nervous system. It increases your basic metabolic rate. Your body gets geared up. It gets geared up, and your heart contraction goes up. Blood sugar, remember energy and your sympathetic nervous system gets going. In this research paper, they said that that mimics anxiety. It mimics anxiety, and your cortisol goes up, your cortisol goes up, your blood sugar goes up. Think of what cortisol is, okay? I'm just going to show it to you, okay? That's cortisol.

And again, you need that. You got two little glands on top of your kidneys. Addrenals. That's secrete cortisol. It's on your side. It'll save your life. You see a gang coming at you, you are walking down the street at night and you see a bunch of thugs coming. You ain't going to fight them. You're going to run as fast as you can. Run, cortisol, adrenaline, okay? But when you eat at night, your blood glucose goes up, your sympathetic nervous system gets going, and then it mimics anxiety. Your cortisol goes up. Of course, that's going to affect your sleep, and they're suggesting in this study, don't get your blood glucose up at night. Good idea. Eat early if at all possible. Eat early, be a senior. Most seniors like to eat early. Well, me, okay, guys, got the memo? Don't spike your blood sugar, and there's a lot of other reasons digestively not to eat at night.

So then you're practicing intermittent fasting, okay? Now, technically, technically you're intermittent fasting when you've gone over 14 hours of not eating technically, but any kind of fasting. 12 hours fasting. Like if you eat six o'clock at night, six o'clock in the morning, well, you might not eat even at six. You go to 14 hours. Let's say you stop eating at six and you don't eat till eight in the morning. What if you go to 10 in the morning? All good for you, shorten up your eating windows, okay? Got it. Got the memo from that study? Okay, that was a good one. We got 70% of the population that can't sleep. One of the biggest reasons they can't sleep is they don't get enough melatonin because they don't get enough vitamin D. They don't get the sun, or they wear sunglasses and they don't let the third eye, your pineal gland absorb vitamin D. Okay? Got it. Okay.

Now, listen to this study, okay? Like I said, I'm only going to bring you some studies and we'll pontificate a little bit. Some of these I'm going to go into a much deeper detail down the road. Type two diabetics, okay? This is another study. If someone is diagnosed with type two diabetes, which is adult onset, which used to be called sugar diabetes, okay? Sugar diabetes, type two adult onset diabetes happening in children. If you get diagnosed before the age of 30, listen to this, it'll go along what I've been saying for a long time. Type two diabetes diagnosed before the age of 30, reduces life expectancy by 14 years. This is in the Lancet, Diabetes and Endocrinology, Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology says type two diabetics or type two diabetes, if it's diagnosed before the age of 30, will reduce that person's life span by 14 years.

Here's the headline, Diabetes Never Ends Well, okay? You've got all sorts of medications. You've got all sorts of medications, including metformin. I'll bring you the Ozempic craze in a minute. Let's just throw that in there because a diabetes drug that has become so popular for weight loss, Ozempic, and again, there's another headline, so I'll get to that in a minute. If you get the diagnosis of diabetes before the age of 30, it's going to on average, cut your lifespan by 14 years. That's a lot, guys, because it doesn't end well. Diabetes medications have a shelf life. What do I mean by that is that they work, they'll control your blood sugar. Yes, they will, but they will not affect the outcome long-term because you're not getting to the bottom line. Diabetes, type two diabetes is a food problem. Type two diabetes is an allergy problem. Type two diabetes means you are not getting along with carbs. You have an allergy.

Every time I see a cat, I think of my cat story where I told the patient, you have allergies. She said, doc, I know. I said, well, what are you allergic to my cat? I said, get rid of it. She said, I can't. I said, well, I can't help you. If you have trouble with insulin, you and carbs don't get along and you have an allergy to carbs. People ask me all the time, doc, I got an allergy to dairy, but I like it. I said, yeah, but I don't like you. You have an allergy. So they're saying, type two diabetes. Imagine getting the diagnosis. Listen, guys, I never, ever, ever, I was in practice for 46 years and I never saw type two diabetes or sugar diabetes or adult onset diabetes in children. That's why they called it adult onset. But today it's common. Children are diabetics. They don't know it because the last thing, what we teach at the Martin Clinic, we teach this, teach it, teach it, teach it. Tony Jr and I talked about this the other day. We've been saying this so long, the last thing to happen in your body is diabetes. Your body is so intelligent, so fearfully and wonderfully made.

If someone's a diabetic, they've been in trouble. They've been in deep doo doo for a long time. The last thing to happen is for sugar to stay in your bloodstream where you can monitor it and measure it, and it gets up into the high numbers, and people go, I'm a diabetic. It's funny, last week I wasn't a diabetic, but now I got diabetes. I said, nah, you've been a diabetic for a long time. You weren't listening, Linda. You weren't listening to your body, Larry, okay? In all due respect to Linda's and Larry's out there, you're not listening. Your body was giving you clues. It was trying to talk to you. It was trying to tell you, yes, I know you love carbs, but we don't get along. You know how many times in a day when people send me their blood work, and I tell 'em, you have insulin resistance, meaning that your A1C is over 5.4, that means you and carbs don't get along. That's what it means. You have an allergy. You can deceive yourself, dupe yourself, bury your head in the sand, but your body's trying to tell you something.

Isn't it interesting that they do this study? And I'll tell you, if it ever made the headlines in traditional media, it would be because they're going to try and tell you. But if you take our medications, Metformin, Ozempic, nah, nah, nah, nah. This study is saying, in spite of medication, you're still going to lose 14 years off your life span on average. Folks, this is earth shattering research. I've been saying this for so long, it never ends well. The idea is to take the bull by the horns. Number one, understand what the problem is. The problem isn't your genetics. My dad is a diabetic, so is mine. Diabetes all around. It's a weakness. Yeah, it might be a weakness, but at the end of the day, you and carbs don't get along. You have an allergy to them. Hello? That's what it means.

So what do you do about it? It starts in the kitchen or at the grocery store. It's choices. You're on the Titanic plus, if you're diabetic, you already hit the iceberg. Don't play games. Get into the life boat. There's a life boat out there. It has your name on it, and it's change my diet. Is it going to be easy? No. No. Not easy. Is it going to be worth it? Yep. It'll be worth it. Does it work? Every time because you're getting at the root of the problem. It works every time. Now, if you're already diabetic, and I'm not talking about whether you stay on meds or not, I don't talk about that. That's between you and your physician. But if you get to the root of the problem. I had a lot of physicians who trusted me, sent me referrals. They were diabetics, their patients, and they sent them to me and they said, listen to Dr. Martin. I don't know if they thought they were coming for a pill. They weren't coming for a pill. They were coming for nutrition 1 0 1 teaching and then accountability.

I can't go home with you, but here's the solution. You're going to start the first 30 day reset. That's how the reset started, by the way, okay? If you don't know the background of the reset, 30 days of eggs, meat, and cheese, it was for diabetic patients. Did it work? Unbelievable. Did it ever work and then I started using it for horrormones, and I started using it for you name it, because it really does do the reset. And the primary advantage of it is that now you are giving your pancreas a holiday because that's the problem in diabetes. Of course, diabetes is the last thing to happen. The first thing to happen is insulin resistance. Your cells get tired of insulin. They're always knocking at the door. They're always coming around, and your cells get tired of it, but insulin is a big bad neighbor, and it doesn't care if you tell 'em to stay home. It comes around anyways, as long as you insist on eating bread, pasta, rice, cereals, any cereal, sugar, sweets, pastries, muffins, bagels. "Dr. Martin, it's a whole wheat muffin. Dr. Martin. It's a carrot muffin. It's got carrots in it." I don't carrot. I don't, it doesn't matter. It's going to be sugar in five seconds, okay? It's going to be sugar in five seconds.

This study should be earth shattering because usually what gets the attention of people and physicians is when you tell people it's like smoking, okay? It's like smoking. Think about it. Why did stop smoking catch on? Remember, including my father thought smoking was good for you. Nine out of 10 doctors choose Camel, okay? Medicine actually thought that smoking was good for you. Here take a cigarette and it'll clear out your lungs, right? You remember that? Well, you got to be my age. And then smoking is bad. I mean, folks, there are some parks that you can't even go smoke outside because people don't want that. And you know what guys? It's true. Smoking's bad for you. Is there a physician on the planet that would argue that anymore? I don't think so. But yet they will defend carbohydrates till the cows come home. Pardon the pun.

They will defend the, you need carbohydrates, you need them. Your brain can't work without sugar. I mean, it's moderation. Yeah, you shouldn't overdo it and don't live on ice cream, but you can have ice cream. And I have a diabetic patient, I go, ah no. What? No. What do you mean no? No. The toughest word in the English language is no. It's the toughest in Russian too. Nyet. French. Non. Okay. I used to tell my French patients, non. What? Non pas pain. Pas pain, no bread. What? No bread. I get excited, folks, but I'm telling you, when I see these articles and they come out and actually say it, that lifespan, and guys, the nice thing about our group is that our group knows this. We've known it for a long time, and think about this, we know that the same thing that causes diabetes is the same thing that causes cancer. It's the same thing that causes heart disease and stroke. It's the same thing that causes Alzheimer's. It's called metabolic syndrome, and it has to do with food. Diabetes, it's food.

I'm not even talking about type one, which is an autoimmune disease. It starts in the gut. Type one starts in the gut, leaky gut, leaky pancreas, type one, different. This is type two. They changed type two, they changed the name. Be honest about this. You got to give the food industry credit, give them credit. They're marketing geniuses. They changed the name from sugar diabetes. My dad telling me about diabetes in 1968, son, I have sugar diabetes. I asked him a question, dad, why do you stop? You won't eat any sugar at all. Dad, why are you doing that? I have sugar diabetes, son. Do you think I forgot that? Do you think when I got 2000 hours of nutrition that I ever forgot that from my father's lips? I never forgot it. Son, I have sugar diabetes, and by the time I got into school, they started changing the name of it. It's adult onset.

So what they're saying is it's not food. It's your poor adults that happen to be unlucky, and they leave the kids out of it because what's food got to do with diabetes? And the whole mantra. Guys, I watched it happen in my lifetime. The whole mantra was this, moderation, moderation. Eat everything in moderation. True or false, it's a hundred percent true. I watched it. I watched it. And remember, even when I took from all the gurus moderation, I never, ever, ever believed them, ever. My dad was smarter than the average bear, let me tell you that. And he had a huge influence on my life. I never believed that. No, it's sugar, man. I've been against sugar from the day when and what turns the sugar in five seconds because it's all a matter of insulin response. My word. I didn't even get to these other studies today. Well, we might have to continue tomorrow.

Okay, thanks guys for patience yesterday. We didn't have a program, but we thank you for coming on today. Tell your friends, share this. Share the information. Tell 'em to get our new book, Sun, Steak and Steel, still available, martin clinic.com. How do you get the new books? Sun, Steak and Steel? Yeah. Thank you for making the number one in Canada health book. We love you. Thank you. Share the message. Let 'em read. If they don't believe it, well, you can give 'em information. Okay? You can give them info. You can lead a horse to water. You can't necessarily make 'em drink it, but you can certainly add some salt to make them thirstier. Okay, guys, we love you dearly, and we'll talk to you soon.
