Are Diabetes And Candida Connected
Greetings. It's New Zealand naturopath, EricBakker. I'm the author of Candida Crusher and the formulator of the Canxida range ofdietary products. I've got an email question here from a man called Jeff Allen. Jeff Allenis from a small town called Paraparaumu hereNew Zealandthe southern part of theNorth Island. And Jeff's asking, quot;Is Candida and diabetes connectedé Can one cause theotheréquot; Good question, Jeff. Let's talk a bit about the Candida and the diabetes connection.There are different kinds of diabetes. In fact, there are three types of diabetes, buttwo are more commonly recognized. Type 1 or an autoimmune diabetes and Type 2, what wecall mature age onset. Type 3 diabetes is
a newer form also called metabolic synomeand it comes about from obesity, high blood pressure, dyslipidemia, so you've got elevatedblood lipids. This Type 3 not many people have heard about that one.Diabetes is a very common phenomenon, Jeff. It's a growing epidemicthe western worldand it comes through western living. It comes through basically eating the wrong kind offood, not exercising, and getting obese and major blood sugar dysregulation occurs. Bloodsugar regulation occurs primarily through a gland called the pancreas, which secretesa hormone called insulin. Only a very small percentage of the pancreas is involved inthe production and release of insulin through
the acini cells. The bulk of the pancreasmakes up enzymes and bicarbonate to help assist digestion.Insulin is very important because it's a hormone that allows the body to push glucose insidethe cell. It binds to receptor sites and activates cells, so glucose powers up the body. Anotherhormone called cortisol is produced by the aenal gland, and cortisol helps the bodyto assistthe longterm regulation of blood sugar between meals when the blood sugar levelops. The brain will sense that and it will actually liberate stored glucose called glycogenby way of cortisol. I hope you're still with me and understand this. You may want to watchthe tutorial again.
Insulin is required to get the blood sugarinto the cell through receptor sites on the cell. Cortisol is released when blood sugarlevel ops a little bit too much because cortisol will allow the body to breakdownstored sugar, generallythe liver and some other parts of the body, to be released inthe bloodstream, which would then be converted to glucose.If you've got diabetes, it's much easier for you to get a urinary tract infection becauseyou're going to have more blood sugar output, a urine output of sugar, and mellitus meanssweet urine, diabetes mellitus. That could be another thing that diabetics get is increasedincidence of urinary tract infections, vaginal
infection, and also skin yeast infections.Many kinds of yeast infections are prevalent with diabetes because of their dysregulationof glucose, and of course, Candida loves glucose, so it will feed on that.Type 1 diabetes is entirely different. It's generally juvenile and you're born with it.It is an autoimmune disease, meaning that the body is actually attacking the pancreasand destroying it, causing a permanent lifelong dysregulation of glucose, usually requiringthe injection of insulin. HereNew Zealand, we have ads on TV now for slow release insulinthat you can actually inject. Type 3 diabetes or metabolic synome is reallyI call it quot;metabolic sinome.quot; Because sinners
get it. Dietary sinners get it. Exercise sinnersget it. These are people that sit on the coach with a remote control and often don't wantto do too much. They end up very large people and they get not just the diabetic, Type 2problems, but they get a lot of hypertension and many other associated problems that gowith obesity. What happens with the Candidaé Candida createsactually a real problemthe body because it can actually make this enzyme called secretedaspartyl protease or SAPs. The University of California, San Diego, worked this outa while ago that this secreted enzyme that Candida actually produces has a really badeffect on the body by destroying the receptor
