Complicating Diabetes Treatment | Simplifying Diabetes Treatments
From Yale University
We have been potentially over-treating a substantial proportion of the population
Diabetes treatments have saved many lives, but in older patients with multiple medical conditions, aggressively controlling blood sugar with insulin and sulfonylurea drugs, could lead to over-treatment and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), according to new research by Yale School of Medicine researchers.
Published in the Jan. 12 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, the study found that many older diabetes patients received aggressive treatment for their disease regardless of their health status and blood sugar levels. In patients with diabetes age 65 and older, this could result in hypoglycemia, a serious health threat, which can lead to confusion, coma, and even death.
“We treat diabetes to prevent complications of the disease by lowering blood sugar levels, but the problem with aggressively lowering blood sugars in older people — to a hemoglobin A1c below 7% — is that it is uncertain whether this approach provides a benefit, and it could, in fact, cause greater harm,” said lead author Dr. Kasia Lipska, assistant professor of internal medicine at Yale School of Medicine. “Our study suggests that we have a one-size-fits-all approach despite questionable benefits and known risks. We have been potentially over-treating a substantial proportion of the population.”
Eggs as a diabetes medicine was perhaps our most popular article in 2014. The research above to start off 2015 shows that readers are eager to share and try simple things for their diabetes.
I highly recommend egg omelets to my patients for reversing diabetes. People often express surprise at how repetitively I suggest to them that they should consider my omelet recipes as an important part of their program to reversing diabetes.
A patient told me recently, “But I don’t like eggs, I don’t eat eggs.”
And I found myself saying “If you don’t eat eggs because you do not like them, then please take eggs as your diabetes pills.”
If you don’t eat eggs in your attempt to reverse diabetes then I am going to suggest, please take your eggs as pills. I think that the main reason that people are so hesitant to accept my advise is the pernicious propaganda against eggs as a cause of cholesterol by American cardiologists for the last 50 years. It is false, it is blatantly false.
Eggs prevent heart disease. If you truly understand the physiology and the biology of cholesterol you will find that healthy cholesterol prevents heart attacks and strokes. But I emphasize with people who tell me, aren’t eggs unhealthy foods?
There is a wonderful movie we saw in January 2014. A Japanese movie “Like Father, Like Son.” It is an excellent movie I would strongly recommend that you see it. Now the reason that I bring up this movie in this discussion is that a one place in the movie, the husband, a successful businessman, he comes home unexpectedly and his wife quickly make a meal for him. And he says, please put an egg in my noodles. She says, “oh no, you cannot have eggs because your cholesterol is high and your doctor says you shouldn’t have cholesterol.” I started thinking about this. Are the Japanese film makers so gullible that they are going to ignore the cumulative wisdom of centuries of their ancestors and just accept this American dogma? That eggs are bad? So I say that if you don’t like eggs and you want to reverse your diabetes, please take eggs as your diabetes pills.
The recipes listed on this page are designed first and foremost to prevent diabetes, excess weight gain, insulin toxicity. My second objective is to prepare my omelets in a very time efficient way. I really do not like to spend too much time in the kitchen and my criteria is that my wife should say that these omelets are delicious.

Dr. Ali’s Start-Low-Build-Slow Principle
In all guidelines for natural remedies for preserving health and reversing chronic diseases, I strongly advise readers to follow my Start-Low-Build-Slow Principle. Simply stated, this principle requires that an individual in trying natural remedies be cautious and closely observe how the body responds to natural remedies, beginning with small amounts or portions of remedies (as low as one-tenth the value on the first day, and doubling them every day until the recommended dose is reached. If any negative senses are experienced, the item should be discontinued or taken in smaller amounts for longer periods of time to increase tolerance. It is important that a doctor be consulted to rule out the presence of serious coexisting or underlying conditions.
