WARNING: INSULIN THERAPY TRIPLES MORTALITY IN TYPE 2 DIABETICS WITH NORMAL-to-RAISED C PEPTIDE

A report today from Hong Kong finds that   “insulin-treated type 2 diabetics with high C peptide are at a significantly higher risk of cardiovascular events (hazard ratio [HR] 2.85, p = 0.049) and death (HR 3.43, p = 0.043)”.

Thus insulin should be added only in uncontrolled type 2 diabetics with low C peptide.

Those with normal to high C peptide levels apparently have good insulin output, thus insulin resistance.

The corollary is that, rather than insulin and insulin secretagogues/ mimetics, these patients  simply need better diet and oral  insulin sensitizers.

Yet we continue to see patients  gaining weight and getting sicker  on insulin (and sulphonylureas and glitazones) , instead of them being guided to better diet ( fat-free cooking, sugar-free, low in fruit juice, salt, cornstarch)  and natural  supplementary   insulin sensitizers to tolerance (ie galega/metformin, the dozen minerals and vitamins, at least 10 human biologicals, fish oil and a choice of a thousand herbs.
