INSULIN THE CAUSE OF OBESITY?

I am 68, male, a Type 2 for the last 16 years, on ‘Starch Spread’ and was on medication for managing diabetic.

I switched to LCHF 11 months ago and doing fine.

While continuing with the previous dosage even after changing to LCHF I was becoming fat rapidly. Someone in this forum rightly suspected that ‘it could be due to excess insulin in my system as the dosage required to match the higher carbs intake was continued even after the carbs intakes were reduced by resorting to LCHF’

IT PROVED PERFECT. I REDUCED THE DOSAGE BY HALF AND I GOT BACK TO NORMAL.

This makes me to wonder whether the ‘Obesity’ a relatively new issue world over could be linked to excessive insulin - because most of the adults of child bearing age are on ‘insulin inducing drugs’ and as such at the time of conception or during breast feeding the change of insulin’s getting into the systems of the infants is a reality.

We may be having treatment program just in the opposite direction of diabetic management in the future, if my assumption proved to be correct!

If you reduced your carb intake and took lchf diet and still continued with previous dosage why did you not get hypos ? Hypoglycemic episodes.

Sir. Insulin is a protein hormone. It can't get into the system of either foetus or infant. Insulin can't cross placenta nor can be found in breast milk. Insulin being protein can't be taken orally because it'll be destroyed in GIT by proteolytic enzymes.

  • Thank you very much indeed for taking your valuable time to respond to my imagination. I do not disagree with all what you said- very scientific statement.

    My becoming fat and getting back to normal during fix duration as a direct consequence of changing to LCHF/ dosage of drugs was factually accurate.

    The bulk of obese you see around are youngsters. The Genetically Modified produces like tomatoes are a new phenomenon - a new breed not known earlier. I am not a medical or research person but I suspect ‘during formative stage’ -in very early stage of the embryo some thing is meddling with it.

    The Type-1 or Type-2 queues of this length were not seen for channeling in those days. These queues are getting longer and longer and surprisingly by very young people and so are the pupils in kindergarten with the weight of a fully grown adult of our days- there seems a correlation!

    This got into my head because the LCHF was considered unspeakable for diabetics according to medical science and now proved otherwise. It makes me wonder whether the ‘obsesses are a GM produce triggered by ‘insulin inducing agents’.
