DESCRIPTION: Prediabetes and type 2 diabetes are caused by a drop in insulin sensitivity blamed on “intramyocellular lipid,” the buildup of fat inside our muscle cells.

The most concerning downside of low-carb diets, though, is heart health: Low Carb Diets and Coronary Blood Flow ( )

This is the first of a 3-part video series on the cause of type 2 diabetes, so as to better understand dietary interventions to prevent and treat the epidemic. Next, in The Spillover Effect Links Obesity to Diabetes ( ), I talk about how that fat can come either from our diet or excess fat stores, and then in Lipotoxicity: How Saturated Fat Raises Blood Sugar ( ) show how not all fats are equally to blame.

Here are some of my recent diabetes videos with a bunch more on the way:
• Lifestyle Medicine Is the Standard of Care for Prediabetes ( )
• Diabetics Should Take Their Pulses ( )
• How to Prevent Prediabetes from Turning into Diabetes ( )
• How to Prevent Prediabetes in Children ( )
Plant-Based Diets and Diabetes ( )
• Preventing Prediabetes By Eating More ( )
