There are two main types of diabetes:
- Type 1 – Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM)
- Type 2 – Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM)
Some people also experience gestational diabetes, where higher levels of oestrogen and cortisol during pregnancy cause blood sugar level to be raised and therefore more insulin to be produced. It has also been argued that Alzheimer’s is a type of diabetes.
Type 1: This is an auto-immune condition where almost all of the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas are gradually destroyed by the immune system and are unable to regenerate. It is most commonly seen in young people and is fairly rare, though dangerous. Possible causes of this condition include a single traumatic event such as a car crash, marriage break-up or job loss. It could also be triggered by an illness, emotional shock or damage from vaccinations. Immune system issues can be contributed towards by taking lots of antibiotics or chronic dehydration, which can lead to fungal infestation.
Type 2: This condition is most commonly seen in individuals over 40. Traditionally, type 2 diabetes is said to be caused by obesity, though not all sufferers of this condition are obese. Imbalance in gut flora and damage from vaccinations are other factors that can be involved. Diets containing lots of sugar, carbohydrates and alcohol cause spiking and extreme fluctuation in blood sugar level which can lead to insulin resistance. When a person consumes a vast quantity of sugars, a large amount of insulin is produced. This then quickly processes the sugars, resulting in a dramatic drop in blood sugar level. Low blood sugar makes a person craves sugars, continuing the cycle that can ultimately lead to diabetes. Another significant factor is emotional and physical stress which starts a fight/flight reaction. This causes release of adrenalin, which releases glucose from cells and causes an insulin surge. If no physical action is taken, the energy that has been released can’t be burnt off.
Type 1: Signs of this condition include increased thirst, dramatic weight change, increased urine production, high blood pressure, increased appetite, nausea and hyperglycaemia. Patients may develop foot ulcers, diabetic eye disease (retinopathy) which can cause blindness, diabetic neuropathy, heart disease, peripheral vascular disease (gangrene), which can lead on to kidney failure, coma or the need for amputation.
Type 2: Symptoms are similar to type 1 and can include increased thirst and urination, slow wound-healing, fatigue, weight-loss, thrush and blurry vision. People with this condition may have an elevated systolic blood pressure, be susceptible to fainting, have glaucoma or end up in a diabetic coma.

Consuming a low-sugar, no-grain, plant-based diet including beneficial fats such as nuts and olives will fuel the body without leading to sugar spiking and insulin problems. It is also important to keep properly hydrated by drinking a suitable amount of water and taking in enough salt. Regular, vigorous exercise will help to oxygenate and detoxify the body, as well as encouraging glucose tolerance. If the patient is overweight, their condition will likely be improved by working towards a healthy weight. It will also help to have a proper sleep pattern and to take measures to reduce stress. Doctors usually prescribe diabetics with insulin or other medication to help control blood sugar level. Regular check-ups are recommended to manage the condition and check blood sugar level.
Experiences and case studies
A 28-year-old woman had been living with diabetes since she was 13 years old. Due to blood in the eyes and secondary glaucoma, her eyes had deteriorated to the point of blindness and she was dependent on her parents, living at home. After having had 3 bioresonance therapy sessions, she was able to see shapes and after 8 sessions, she could tell the time from her kitchen clock. At the completion of therapy, her intra-ocular pressure was significantly reduced, her eyesight improved and she felt confident enough to be able to live on her own.
