Dr. Neal Barnard
If you have diabetes or are concerned about developing it, KUED is offering a program that could change the course of your life. Although diabetes is a serious illness that all too often leads to heart problems, nerve damage, blindness, stroke, or kidney failure, it doesn't have to be that way.
Move beyond simply managing diabetes to TAKING CONTROL OF DIABETES WITH DR. NEAL BARNARD. Nutrition researcher Neal Barnard, M.D., reveals groundbreaking research and scientifically proven methods to turning back the clock on diabetes. Today, the disease affects more than 24 million children and adults in America. Through Dr. Barnard's low-fat vegan diet, diabetics and non-diabetics alike will experience medical results including weight loss, blood glucose control, reduced heart disease risk and, in many cases, prevent the need for medications. TAKING CONTROL OF DIABETES airs several times on KUED this month. See it Saturday, March 6 at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 10 at 7:00, 8:30 or 10:00 p.m. or Friday, March 12 at 7:30 p.m.
Dr. Barnard explains the different types of diabetes and how each is triggered by genes, weight, poor diet and lack of physical activity or pregnancy. Dr. Barnard reveals in-depth scientific studies from leading national organizations, unveiling results that not only diminish diabetes, but increase energy and weight loss. Through a series of studies, Dr. Barnard discovered that it is possible to repair insulin function and reverse Type 2 diabetes through nutrition. His approach can help Type 2 diabetes patients control blood sugar three times more effectively than with the standard dietary regimen for people with diabetes.
He offers a three-rule system to taking control of diabetes:
A vegan diet means avoiding all animal products and instead eating regular meals in the four food groups of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes.
