How Diabetes and Berberine Work – Part 1
by Dr. Karl Nadolsky
I always wanted to start a small video series to help people learn about the diseases we try to prevent. So what I did was buy a special tripod adapter for my iphone (which records video in HD), a huge whiteboard, some markers, and a hook on microphone (not used in this video because it didn’t arrive in time). My goal of starting a small video series is to simplify how these diseases work and what to do about them so that anyone could understand and not just doctors. My brother and I think education is a key component when treating our patients in the clinic. We feel that if they at least have the slightest clue what is going on in their body, they will have a better chance at fixing the problems.
This first video is basically a replication of the talk we give to many patients with diabetes or insulin resistance. You can get a more in depth version by reading my brother’s article The War on Obesity and Diabetes. This will be a multi-part series since it is hard to simplify a process (diabetes) that has multiple mechanisms. Also, each of these will show how berberine works in fighting insulin resistance and diabetes since many people don’t understand its mechanism of action. I also mention prescription drugs that work similarly.
Hopefully you got something out of this video. The next in the series will describe how the liver and pancreas don’t cooperate correctly in diabetes and how berberine, exercise, and other prescriptions can help. This video basically described our peripheral tissues (muscle and fat) which is a big part of diabetes, but many people don’t know about the liver. Stay tuned!
