The Diabetes Manual is a new concept for treatment of diabetes.
The concept described in the Diabetes Manual is a combination of a protein-rich food with fewer carbohydrates, less fructose, and some simple lifestyle changes – among others an eating pattern with fewer meals a day, preferably without snacking in-between.
This contributes to the restoration of normal glucose metabolism and to removal of metabolic syndrome. (*1)
The Diabetes Manual provides a far better control of the blood sugar than any anti-diabetes medication. (*2)
After few days the blood sugar will be normalized and after a few weeks/months it will for overweight diabetics typically result in a permanent weight loss of between 7 and 20 % of the body weight. A portion of the body fat will disappear, and the stomach will gradually diminish (the “apple belly” will disappear). (*3)
The concept is not a slimming diet, but a guide to how you can easily customize your and your family’s current meal plan and lifestyle so that you avoid antidiabetes medication and late diabetes complications and so that you after each meal again feel a normal healthy fullness without eating too much.
The manual contains:
The main reason for development of type 2 diabetes
How your glucose metabolism should work
How to normalize the blood sugar in few days without medication (*4)
How to keep your bs normalized for good in a 3 step approach
Which food to select
Model recipes and principles for preparing healthy food for diabetics
Beverages and recipes for vegetable juices
The metabolic disorder syndrome is caused by fructose.
How to minimize the consumption of fructose
Behavior – exercise – motion
Diabetes medication and side effects – and why you should avoid medication if not needed.
The manual is suited for self instruction – you do not have to attend a course.
Price for the manual in English by e-mail is: € 40.00 or US $55.00.

What is diabetes?
Diabetes is characterized by a decreased production of insulin by the pancreas and/or by insulin resistance in the body’s cells. Without sufficient insulin muscles cannot absorb enough glucose from the blood, resulting in high blood sugar and in the development of additional insulin resistance and a gradual worsening of your diabetes.
The number of type 2 diabetes is more than 3-fold since 1970, and the disease has developed into one of the biggest health problems in the world.
The main reason for the development of diabetes is the increasing consumption of fructose. Researchers at the University of California (UCSF) have documented that the metabolism of fructose in the liver is very similar to the liver’s processing of alcohol and that fructose in the quantities consumed by many people today is decidedly poisonous. (*5)
The liver can easily handle small amounts of fructose from eating fruits and vegetables, as it can handle alcohol in limited quantities, but eating fructose in the quantities consumed today results in a severe damage to the liver after a few years and to the development of type 2 diabetes.
A part of the fructose consumed is converted to fat, which accumulate in the liver, leading to formation of insulin resistance in the liver. Abdominal fat is accumulated and formed as an “apple belly.” The content of fructose in the blood is increased as well as the content of triglycerides (fatty acids).
After several months of high consumption of fructose the blood pressure will go up.
A high consumption of fructose results in higher hepatic production of LDL and especially VLDL cholesterol. (VLDL cholesterol is very low density cholesterol, which is the harmful part of LDL cholesterol.) (*6)
In addition uric acid is formed, which subsequently results in the development of gout.
The reason for the increasing consumption of fructose is a failed public health policy in the Western world. Since the 1970’s focus has been on reducing the content of fat in the diet. It has indeed been successful. But as a consequence of this policy the consumption of carbohydrates and especially sugar (including fructose) has increased dramatically. The number of overweight persons and the number of diabetics has increased at the same rate.
Moreover, it has been determined that all diabetics should eat many carbohydrates like everyone else, and that the resulting problems for all diabetics should be solved by medication. In the 1970’s the dietary experts seriously believed that all the consequential diabetic problems could be solved with insulin and more diabetes pills.
Although the reality has shown something quite different the policy has not been changed.
The preliminary outcome of the resent international diabetes conference in Copenhagen documents that the efforts still will be concentrated on early detection of diabetes combined with intensified antidiabetic medication. This strategy will result in more medication to overcome high blood sugar, insulin resistance, obesity, elevated blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and acute gout.
None of the official speakers indicated that the epidemic growth in the number of diabetics could be broken by a protein-rich food with less carbohydrate and much less fructose.
The result is a worldwide health problem which becomes increasingly macabre.
Almost 50 % of all Europeans are overweight and 15 % are obese.
Circa 20 millions have type 2 diabetes, and the figures are estimated to rise 23 % in less than 20 years.
Even small babies are increasingly overweight – mainly because the mothers have had a high consumption of fructose and products containing fructose.
Can diabetes be cured?
The gastric by-pass operations performed during the recent years have shown that the blood glucose is normalized shortly after surgery. Consequently the cause of type 2 diabetes cannot be malfunction of the pancreas or an irreversible insulin resistance in the body’s cells. Nor can it be the amount of body fat as it is almost unchanged immediately after surgery.
In our opinion the healing is mainly caused be a dietary change after the operation to a moreprotein-rich diet with significantly fewer carbohydrates and much less fructose, which is necessitated by the smaller stomach. Furthermore it might be caused by the reduced pressure on the pancreas after the operation allowing the pancreas to regains it normal functionality.
The Diabetes Manual, besides being based on the experience of gastric bypass operations, is also based on experience dating back to 1920, where Nobel Prize winner Dr. Albert Schweitzer was treated for a life-threatening diabetes. The concept is also based on several – especially American and Swedish – scientific studies of the effect of a protein-rich diet with significantly fewer carbohydrates.
These include a study done by Blekingesjukhuset in Sweden in 2003-2007, which showed an average weight loss after 6 months of over 10 % and a decrease in blood sugar (HbA1c) from an average of 8.0 to 6.8 while many of the patients in the trial could stop taking antidiabetes medication.
The study showed that overweight type 2 diabetics who had not previously been able to lose weight, experienced less hunger and significant weight loss after switching to the diet, and that even patients with insulin-dependent type 2 diabetes in several cases could do without medication.
The Diabetes Manual is an tutorial in how to reduce diabetes related problems. (*7)
Beginning foot and leg ulcers will heal by themselves within a few weeks, and incipient vision problems will improved or disappear and development of neuropathy will be stopped . (*8)
In addition the blood pressure will be normalized and the triglycerid and the cholesterol readings will be improved – making medication with statins superfluous. (*9)
Fructose is healthy when eaten as fruit in modest quantities.
But it is toxic in larger quantities !
Type 2 diabetics should limit their intake of fructose as much as possible and the manual helps you to minimize the intake of fructose.
The manual also contains information how much children respectively adults without diabetes maximum should eat daily to avoid the development of type 2 diabetes.
You will find information about the content of sugar for most products on the shelves in the supermarkets. Approximate half of the sugar is fructose,
Is the Diabetes Concept applicable for type 1 diabetes?
The concept is primarily intended for type 2 diabetics. However, it should be pointed out that it is also beneficial for type 1 diabetics to switch to a diet with fewer carbohydrates.
The risk of dispensing the wrong amount of insulin is higher by eating a diet containing many carbohydrates than by a protein-rich food with more fat and fewer carbohydrates.
Blood sugar can be kept at a lower level without increased risk of hypoglycemia. The consequences of a mistake are much less when eating fewer carbohydrates.
Why a low fat diet with a lot of carbohydrates often leads to obesity!
In the Diabetes Manual is explained why a diet with many carbohydrates and low fat as recommended by the health authorities often results in severe obesity, and why it for diabetics and for prediabetics is almost impossible to lose weight when eating many carbohydrates, including too much fructose.
Diabetes medications have side effects – especially in the long term!
If pills could cure diabetes without side-effects most diabetics would probably choose medicine instead of exercising and changing lifestyle.
However, no such pills exist, and there is no prospect for such a pill in the next many, many years.
All known diabetes medication has side effects like muscle pain and digestive problems – and sometimes serious side effects such as neuropathy, reduced cognitive performance and dementia, cancer, pancreatitis, and depression.
The main side effects are described and documented with reference to independent scientific studies.
The Diabetes Concept for vegetarians
It may be difficult for vegetarians to reduce the carbohydrate content sufficient through dietary changes in order to get a normalized blood sugar. This is particularly true if you do not eat fish and dairy products.
Studies have shown that type 2 diabetes by eating 10-12 small meals a day are capable of maintaining a stable and normal blood sugar although the food contains many carbohydrates – as high as 50– 70 % of the energy.
We explain why and give some advice.
The Diabetes Manual
By following the instructions in the Diabetes Manual you can without diabetes medication obtain a normal blood sugar. You will regain your former life and your former energy. (*10)
If you are predisposed to diabetes, you can avoid the development of the disease and avoid forming an apple belly. (*11)
Additionally, you will avoid many doctor and hospital visits and save a lot of money for medical and dental visits -while you reduce the risk of serious complications significantly. You will retain your personal capacity, and you will probably live at least as good and for as many years as if you had never had diabetes. (*12)
