Diabetes is a Disease of Improper Metabolism
Diabetes is a disease of improper metabolism; it is not a disease of improper blood sugars. Elevated blood sugar is not the cause of diabetes, it is a symptom. The lack of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism is the direct cause of the many complications of diabetes; kidney failure, blindness, amputations, heart disease, stroke, neuropathy, progressing wounds, fatigue, sexual dysfunction, diabetes dementia and depression. Blood sugar excursions are just one of the symptoms of improper metabolism.
