Globally, as of 2015, the International Diabetes Federation, reported an estimated 415 million adults are living with diabetes. Yes, that’s more than the population of the U.S. The incidence of diabetes is increasing rapidly, and by 2030, this number will likely double.
Many people live with type 2 diabetes for a long period of time without being aware of their condition. By the time they figure it out the complications of this condition may already be present.
One of the signs of diabetes is low magnesium; it’s in all the medical texts but because we never learned about the importance of minerals in medical school, doctors do not routinely test for magnesium.
As the conditions of magnesium deficiency continue then the condition of diabetes may occur and in that case, the kidneys can become damaged and kidney disease ensues. Ironically, when the kidneys are impaired, doctors tell their patients not to take magnesium, which is what they actually need to heal their kidneys.
Dr. Dean has different counsel for those who have health complications related to magnesium deficiency – take ReMag!
Here is what one young kidney patient told us in last year. “Before I found you and ReMag, I was spilling 2500 of protein in my urine. 6 months ago, I was down to 495. I got my results in the mail today and it was 100 !!!!!!! YAY!!!”
In the last several years, patients of Dr. Jason Fung, a Toronto-based kidney specialist, have seen reversal in their type 2 diabetes conditions through the ketogenic diet. In many of his recent publications Dr. Fung is ardently recommending magnesium supplementation as well. Medicine repeatedly says they have given up on treating diabetes with lifestyle so they opt for drugs and surgery. But people like Dr. Dean and Dr. Fung are proving that proper nutrition, exercise and other lifestyle changes can reverse the disease conditions that diet and magnesium deficiency create.
Tonight on our internet-based radio show we will talk with Dr. Carolyn Dean about Magnesium Deficiency and the Kidneysin addition to a wide range of health topics and safe solutions. You will love hearing the beneficial interactions with our callers and hosts alike including the body/mind connection, identifying the ‘conflict’ in the ‘conflict basis’ of disease and much more!!
