When it comes to the orchestration of all endocrine activity the proper release, production, utilisation of insulin, for instance; there is a direct association with cortisol. Whereas insulin maintains the upper parameters of blood sugar, cortisol maintains the lower parameters, keeping it from going too low. So when are we going to see abnormal spiking in cortisol values? When we have a patient who has suboptimal glucose utilisation or output, or more simply put, hypoglycaemia. Hypoglycaemia is simply a symptom of a greater problem, malabsorption interrelationships to cortisol and the survival mechanisms.
Conventional medicine has T2 diabetes pegged as a problem with blood sugar rather than the underlying problem of improper insulin and leptin signalling. The reality is that diabetes is a disease rooted in insulin resistance and perhaps more importantly, a malfunction of leptin signalling caused by chronically elevated insulin and leptin levels. Research validates medical doctor Dr. Ronald Rosedale’s warning nearly a decade ago, that treating T2 diabetes with insulin can lead further to the development of T1 diabetes.
Studies have found that people with lower levels of insulin and insulin receptors in their brain often have Alzheimer’s disease. In fact, Dr. Rosedale believes that it is the constant burning of glucose by the brain that is primarily to blame for Alzheimer’s and many other brain disorders. “Brain diabetes”
While much conventional advice centers around insulin, leptin is another hormone that plays an integral role in the development of T2 diabetes. Leptin is produced in adipose and other cells, and one of its primary roles is regulating appetite and body weight. Insulin and leptin resistance work in tandem. Leptin is largely responsible for the accuracy of insulin signalling and whether or not the patient becomes insulin resistant.
